It's that magical time of the year again when the sun comes out more frequently, stockings can be tucked at the back of the intimates draw and its more acceptable to leave the house without shoes on. With Summer is just around the corner and Spring well and truly present its the perfect time for me to start organising my summer wardrobe. One of the hardest things about having to also work a day job is being able to purchase times i can wear for both business and pleasure. I was lucky enough to be asked to sit court side by the guys and gals from Rokk Ebony Melbourne and Rokk Man Barbers during there MSFF runway. Held at Collins Place, paris end of Collins street, it was a certainty that the fashion would be super sleek lines with a hint of spring racing and topped off with a professional twist to the current 70's trend, appropriate enough for any day time wear in the office (minus the backless lass jumpsuit obviously).  

But the main reason we were all there was for the hair. The hair was fem and understated- both summing up exactly was spring time should be about. Hair that can move with the spring time breeze but still look professional enough to wear with a power suit or slick straight lines. A perfect balance for the transitioning from winter to spring. Ive included below the "How To's" for both the Side Tie and my personal fav, the Faux Bob.



I'm cold. Its wet. And its incredibly dark for 11 am. 
I've been moving around quite a lot in the past couple of months. I was living out of a suitcase for quite some time whilst I found a more permanent residence and as materialistic as this sounds, I missed my things. I missed waking up and being surrounded by all the junk i've collected over the years, all the silly little nik naks, all the stuff that makes me feel like I'm home. Its funny how easily you lose yourself when you don't have a place that's yours. But now that i've crammed all my necessities into one 2X2 "half bedroom" I feel like can finally focus on getting my life in order again. I have a lot of love for this bedroom though, the white walls, dark wood floors, high ceilings and a large window that brings in stunning natural light. I wouldn't want anything more. Its cosy and tidy and has enough room for me to hang my paintings and keep plants on the windowsill. 

I did this shoot a while back in the summer, you can tell because I'm not translucent and my face is flicked with freckles. The location is my nan and pops house in the country and there were so many memories playing in their backyard. Its an odd feeling to come back and see just how small everything actually is. When you're a child everything just seems so incredibly big- the dinning table, the kitchen the backyard and all the hiding spots. There was so much wonder and mystery that surrounded my nan and pops house. But the older I got the more started to realise that the fern garden wasn't a jungle and large piece of oval fibreglass wasn't a giants bar of soap. 

I've always said this, but I have never really wanted to grow up. I like my independence and I like that I can do what I like and go to bed when I feel like it. But the actual growing old part and having tremendous responsibility just doesn't interest me. It's like a really boring ride that starts off with so much potential but then steadily starts to slow down and all of a sudden your not having fun anymore. I'd like to get of now and find a better ride, please.


Last Day of MBFW 15. I'm feeling excited and exhausted, sad but also incredibly happy to have been given such an amazing opportunity by Redken Australia. I couldn't thank the team enough for welcoming me in to such a tight knit family. I felt so incredibly honoured to be in the same room as many of Australia's leading hair stylist and to be given the chance to photograph them doing what they do best is something i'll never forget. Not to mention, being given the opportunity to be one of one with designers and models, back stage, side stage and front row, is probably the most exciting thing that a small country girl has ever done. This time last year i would never have imagined to be where I am right now. I'm am so incredibly blessed and grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way.
