A few weeks ago now I was in Brisbane with the Meg Mac crew for our show with Jarryd James and we were staying in such a fun place! Our rooms were literally court and pool-side! Metaxia and I were bunking together, and always grab what opportunity we can to take some quick snaps! We were obviously inspired by our hotel and complete vacay-vibes. It’s always different when someone else is taking photos of me. I’m so used to having Maddy behind the camera – no judgment just sistas hanging out with a camera. But when someone else is snapping I feel like I have to ‘turn-it-on’ just that little more. In saying this, Metaxia is a total gem and makes me feel very comfortable. So, my demeanour in the photos is a little less ‘chilling on the tennis court’, and a little more ‘i clearly don’t play tennis, i’m just here to model.’ I hope you enjoy them none the less. Go over and have a look at Metaxia’s site – Burnished and Bound.

Let’s talk about clothes and stuff though. I have bought 4 jumpsuits in the last month. That is a lot of jumpsuits. That is an average of one jumpsuit per week. This one I got in Sydney from the little section at the bottom of Westfield with the small designers. SJ Lauren has such adorable stuff, and she makes everything look cool herself. So I was struggling with what to walk away with, but I am over the moon with this purchase. Speaking of moons – my necklace. I started following Molten Store on Instagram after they celebrated their store launch with the most amazing bedazzled donuts I had ever seen and they instantly won my heart! So this trip to Brisbane I had a little time to shop around, and we just so happened to be staying 10 minutes away from the store! It was fate! And I love my star and moon necklace. Stars just get me every time.

If you don’t already, then go ahead and follow us on Instagram. We update lots of makeup stuff, outfits, pretty things and we are just starting some mini how-to’s. See you on insta!

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you’ve all had a lovely holiday season and spent some time with your family and friends! 2016 is looking to be a pretty exciting year for us, and we are really excited to share what’s coming up with everyone! Yay! Now, striped pants. It’s a bold move. Although they are super light and baggy, there is something about these pants that feel dressy to me. So pairing them with a pair of sneakers (converse is the default for me) gives them a slightly more casual edge, and it’s my favourite thing to mix something dressy with something cas(j). I think it gives a real life kind of feel to whatever you’re wearing and not to mention adds a level of comfort! Keeping in mind that we are wearing pinstriped wide-leg pants, monochrome has got to be the way to go for the rest of the look. Black, white and simple and then add a little drama with your favourite lip colour. It’s the best way to get dressed up and be comfortable at the same time! Got a post form Brisbane coming up soon, but in the meantime try out mixing up a patterned piece with a whole bunch of plain and simple and that lip – you won’t regret it!

Denim is a weird thing. It can be seriously cool, or seriously not. I think first things first – find the right cut (anything ill fitting is already a disaster) then find the right colour. I prefer denim that doesn’t have a wash of any other colour through it – so a true blue or a black and then faded from there if need be. Also rips are just an easy way to make something a little cooler. I have been loving the t-shrit under dress kind of vibe, it makes the dress that bit more casual, and looks super cute which is always a win. I think a denim shift dress might just become a new staple in my wardrobe. Nice and short, but super loose around the waist so I can eat a lot and not be concerned about holding myself in – which we all know is my main priority – can I eat in this?

Another fun post coming soon.

A few weeks ago now while on tour with Meg, I was exploring Melbourne and took photos with the lovely Metaxia of Burnished and Bound. She is a wonderfully talented photographer, and we just had some super quick fun down an alley way and in front of someone’s house!

So I am currently in London and posting about Melbourne. I’ve been so blessed this year with the opportunity to travel more than I ever have before. Working with Meg has been a real pleasure, and her unreal talent inspires me like crazy! Her and half the band live in Melbourne which means I’ve been spending a whole heap of time there, and my heart is quickly growing fond of the city! I hadn’t been to Uniqlo before, and it was a total winner. I went with the intention to find an oversized linen shirt which was the easiest thing ever to find – they have an entire section dedicated to linen. But the army print bomber was totally spontaneous. It’s normally those kinds of purchases that I love the most – and I do love it. Bombers are totally bomb right now and I’m digging this trend! Looking forward to wearing this in Summer at home with a simple black dress and some fat sandals or sneakers.

Speaking of sneakers, today I went to multiple sneaker shops and I tried on a bunch of Adidas. I’m just struggling. I can’t seem to find a pair that suit me, and most of the ones I liked were mens and didn’t come in my size! Every second person in London is wearing some trendy sneakers, vintage jeans and a rad oversized coat and well, they’re starting to annoy me with their effortless cool that I for some reason can’t replicate. So I have 1 day left here and I’m going to try on every pair of sneakers I see! If that mission fails, at least I will be returning home with some rad vintage denim from Camden Markets. Hoping to show you my purchases soon! Follow us on instagram if you want to see what fun we have been getting up to and who we have been making pretty!
