my 21st: a series of events.

I just had what was probably the biggest week of my year. I'll do a quick recap...amongst submitting university assignments, last week I went to the Wombats, had my college ball, went to Green Day, spent the weekend in Fitzroy with family, and turned 21. All in the space of six days. I am stuffed.... Continue Reading →

Green Day

Green Day has been one of my favourite bands since I was ten years old. I still remember playing air guitar in my bedroom to American Idiot, the album that introduced me to punk music and essentially changed my life. Last Friday night I went to Green Day's concert at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.... Continue Reading →

College Ball

Last Thursday night I had my Chisholm College ball. It was a fabulous night with lots of delicious food, wine, music and dancing. I wore a vintage dress that I discovered in an antique shop. Big thank you to the accommodation services at La Trobe University for organising such a wonderful night.

The Wombats Melbourne

Last Wednesday night I was lucky enough to attend the Wombat's concert at Festival Hall in Melbourne. While touring Australia for Groovin the Moo, the Wombats have been playing side shows to celebrate the ten year anniversary of their debut album, A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation. The show was honestly incredible. The boys played... Continue Reading →

Sunset over Eagles Nest

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter and indulged on waaay too much chocolate. I know I did! My flatmate's family was kind enough to let me stay with them over the Easter break. Their home is situated in the picturesque Gippsland region, so I had a very relaxing break from uni life. One chilly evening Sarah and I... Continue Reading →

A moment in time

The way people lived and thought back then intrigues me. I long for the music, the fashion, the culture. I crave it so deeply... Continue Reading →

Memes to models: how Instagram is changing fashion

Two weeks ago, Gucci posted a series of memes to Instagram as part of a campaign to promote their new watch collection. Inspired by popular meme accounts, the iconic fashion house commissioned various artists to create these memes. They were all posted with the hashtag #TFWGucci (That Feel When Gucci). https://www.instagram.com/p/BR5eQafFeZf/?taken-by=gucci Although it received mixed reactions, the campaign...

self-care

This weekend's events (or lack thereof) reminded me of the importance of self-care. Before I tell you why, let me explain that I live on campus at uni. It's a pretty social environment, which suits me because I don't like being alone for too long. However, I do need my own space, which I still have... Continue Reading →
