Mixtape // Top 10 Songs of 2013

December 31, 2013

It's crazy to think that another year has come and gone. I feel like I've done nothing this year but my blog begs to differ. This year has been fairly amazing for music and it was very difficult to pick only ten songs. However I managed it, so here they are!

10. The Naked And Famous - Hearts Like Ours

I always completely obsess over The Naked And Famous' singles, however I'm not too impressed with their whole album. This song gives me chills and I think it draws back into my love for songs that would be perfect for video montages. This song instantly makes me happy.

Noël en Vogue Runway

December 30, 2013

Last week I was kindly invited to the KEAT Management Modelling Agency and Academy graduation show located in the heart of the Melbourne CBD on Little Collins St. It was a celebratory evening for the gorgeous girls who had just graduated from the modelling academy and a great excuse to showcase some local and international designers. Some of the designers included Leiela Ladies Evening Wear, Pari'ci, Aron, Valentina and Ash Grey Millinery. Here are some of my favourite snaps from the night!

Christmas In Australia

December 27, 2013

Christmas: Australia vs England

Like most people, Christmas is a family affair for me. This involves driving to my Uncle's house for lunch and devouring plate-full after plate-full of nibbles. This year we had our classic cheese platter with the crazy fake seafood mix stuff I love so much, and a few other things. I only realised half way into eating it that I was meant to take a photo, so here it is half eaten haha.

My, How They've Grown

December 23, 2013

Last year I introduced you to two new little family members named Harvey and Norman. Here are some of the pictures of them when they were 9 weeks old. The two brothers haven't seen each other for an entire year until last Saturday when my family got together for our Christmas lunch.

2013 Highlight Reel

I did a lot this year. Here's some of my favourites...

Seeing Metallica, Paramore and Garbage at Soundwave!

Fame Agenda x Darbotz

December 9, 2013

Iconic Melbourne fashion label Fame Agenda have teamed up with Indonesian street artist Darbotz to create their new range. Taking graffiti off walls from Darbotz' previous trip to Melbourne, Fame Agenda then turned his art into the prints used for this collection. Awesome right? The collection was showcased on the steps of the State Library Of Victoria as part of Mapping Melbourne, whilst he gratified in the background. It made for one pretty memorable show. Here are some of my favourites.

Christmas In Melbourne

December 6, 2013

I would just like to point out that it was 36°C (96°F) on the day I took these pictures. A bit different to the classic white Christmas you see in the pictures of London or New York. But, well, Melbourne is a bit different. I love Christmas time for the obvious reason of pretty lights and lots of colours and Melbourne definitely doesn't disappoint in that department. There are amazing projections on the Town Hall when the sun goes down but I've yet to be in the city that late this year. I hope you enjoy these snaps of my city.

Strangers From Now On | Interview

December 4, 2013

Strangers From Now On are a 4 piece alt-rock band from my hometown of Melbourne. Bassist Dan Myles sat down for a chat about the band, the music and everything in between on the eve of their December 5th show in Melbourne at Boney.

Who are Strangers From Now On?
Ex-lovers who left things irresolvable, the person next to you on the tram, awkward one night stands, old friends that fall by the wayside, the jerk from the bar last weekend, the people you meet traveling and never see again. Either way… an odd name for a band
