Nerdgasm

Some of my nerd crushes happening right now.

P.S If you read anything over the next few days (I have already gushed about it I know) please read Dr. Charlie Teo’s Australia Day address.

Locomotion, Slow Motion

Do you sometimes feel as if the world is just moving at 1000 miles an hour and you are scrambling to keep up? Does that sound really emo? Probably. Lets balance that out with super awesome slow motion pictures of puppies (because who doesn’t like puppies) and other sundry items- i.e crayons and balloons and such.

The Borrowers

As all of you know I am all about the ol’ book learnin’.

The Borrowers was always one of my favourite stories growing up and as with most people that have seen anything Ghibli, I am a die hard Miyazaki fan.

So I was thrilled to discover that the latest Miyazaki masterpiece was none other than Kari-gurashi no Arietti or The Secret World Of Arrietty (which is the title that will be released with the American version that Disney has got their grubby hands all over).

I know it sounds like a total hipster wank thing to say but I prefer watching anything Miyazaki with the original voices and subtitles because it seems more genuine and besides, the incredible illustrations are so descriptive you almost don’t need the subtitles.

I strongly suggest that you get your hands on a copy!

Breakfast At Tiffany’s

Ok, so it was more like cocktails, canapes and sneakily sending photos of engagement rings to Todd *shakes fist*.

The Tiffany’s team kindly invited us to their Christmas night last year along with a couple of my fave bloggers to revel in the caroling festivities, enjoy a drink, eat some food and do some shopping.

This is me looking very awkward on the duck egg blue carpet as a photographer asked me to awkwardly foot model my similarly colored shoes.

Let me tell you now folks, I am definitely not cut out for the challenging and off-balance world of foot modeling.

I’m wearing my bestie Netta’s Zara blazer, Asos lace overlay dress, Shoes from a boutique in Melbourne, Gold Metal Cuff belt from Korea, YSL Arty Ring and Alexander Wang bag.

Pretty In Pink

This was a little shoot I styled a while ago. Pastels are a big Spring 2012 trend and there are some magical pieces about for you to snap up.

The best thing about this shoot was the hair, if only I had blonde hair to test run some pastel dip dye…

The second best thing about this shoot is definitely An Ode To No One with incredible tailoring, fabrics, prints and colours that make all of Adi’s pieces so very easy to style!

Samantha Wills + Vintage Dressups = Magical

Last year, my partner in crime at work Pip and I organised a vintage photoshoot on a balmy spring day in Centennial Park, styling looks around the amazing that is Samantha Wills. 

One of my fave bloggers Em from Spin Dizzy Fall also starred in the shoot and the incredible photos are taken by Nicole Cooper from Confident Liar.

OLD SCHOOL COOL

I got totally inspired when I saw Ralph Lauren’s campaign featuring some very real, murderous looking Australian crims of the 1920’s.

Boys, you can definitely take some style notes here- there is nothing sexier than a dapper gentleman.

I also love the gritty-ness of the photos that is almost impossible to recreate in any genuine way. In an age where “the gritty reboot” runs rampant in Hollywood, its good to see Ralph Lauren using real life inspiration- even if they are bloodthirsty criminals!

Everyone loves a bad boy.

Catchups!

Once again, here I am playing blog catch ups…

One of my new years resolutions is to get the passion back into writing.

My job means I am writing a huge amount of content every day and sometimes it sucks the fun out of what is one of the most enjoyable things in the world to me.

Stay tuned for a blog overhaul, a new header and some consistent writing (I hope!).

I want to take you all behind the scenes with me for those who care, and for those that don’t I am sure I will be retarded enough to keep you entertained.

Too keep you up to speed on what my face looks like, check the below- one of my favourite outfits to date for its Versace-esque prints and colours- thanking Fairground and Mother & Father PR
