With only one semester left of my journalism degree I can no longer hide in my room binge watching Jane the Virgin every time another uni break rolls along. So this last month I pushed my Mac aside and faced the fact that it’s time to start interning. Read: becoming the real-life Andy Sachs (Devil Wears Prada) of the fashion journalism world.
What better way to celebrate the release of our favourite luxury designers’ Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collections than with a few fashion illustrations?
From Chanel’s breath-taking set design (with Karl Lagerfield transforming the Grand Palais into a living, breathing forest) to Alessandro Michele’s surreal, clinical vision for Gucci’s runway as an eerie laboratory, our imaginations were constantly challenged.
To the people who say “the magazine industry is dying,” please step aside, because Marie Claire just hosted Brisbane’s trendiest night of the year.
The wonderful team behind the fashion magazine ventured up to the sunshine state for an evening of exclusive discounts, must-have giveaways and, above all, the celebration of fashion. Elite shopping district James St transformed into an open runway as everyone dressed in their trendiest get-up… however, nobody’s outfit was complete without a Marie Claire gift bag slung over their arm. The first freebie of the night, the goodie bags contained chocolate bars, fortune cookies, discount codes and best of all, their 2018 April issue featuring Reese Witherspoon.
“A show for the warriors of love, the ragtag-hearted heroes, the beautiful, the brave, the healed and the crushed,” Emma Dean smiled at the audience spread before her in an array of beanbags. Most comfortable show ever? I’ll vouch for that.

One year ago, I found myself whisked up in the freezing, wonderful whirlwind of England.
Every movement in this foreign territory of British newsreaders, grey skies and frosted windows was seamless, as our loosely strung plans resulted in golden days. In reality, we were two teenagers attempting to explore an entire continent on budgets that restricted us to backpacker hostels and frequent picnicking (ie. grabbing extra food from our buffet breakfasts).
How else to begin the year than by drinking yourself silly? By doing it with a wicked view, of course.
What’s better than delicious Christmas cookies? HOME-MADE Christmas cookies. Yes, that’s right- we baked something that tastes and looks good (‘we’ being my boyfriend and I). We decided to impress his family by whipping up a batch of festive sweets for their Christmas party, and these photographs are the result!
Every photograph posted on this blog is the phenomenal result of a Canon 550d camera. Recently, the clarity and blur on my lens had been out of whack, so I’ve turned to my canary yellow Instax mini polaroid to fulfil all of my shooting desires. There’s something a little bit sacred and heartwarming about polaroids: every shot is purposefully selected based on the aesthetics of the environment, the golden feeling in the moment or the significance of the event.
CHRISTMAS HAS ARRIVED!! And with it comes carols, happy Christmassy movies, food food food, overall good spirits and SO MUCH MORE. I’m not going to pretend I haven’t already been watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation or humming Run Run Rudolph under my breath… because I definitely have.
