THE MOON.

April 24, 2014

Whenever you feel like the world is weighing down on your shoulders, step outside the back (or front door) of your house at night and stare at the moon.

Not only is it actually one of the most beautiful things you can possibly be looking at, but nothing makes you feel more insignificant and small as staring into an infinite sky.

Suddenly your problems seem less important and your day-to-day stresses – which are no doubt real, genuine stresses – are not as amplified as they were at 4.30pm when you were staring at the clock on your computer, wishing that the day would just hurry up and end. Things like finally getting around to giving your folks a call or not wasting your entire night on the couch are put into perspective.

The gradients of the night sky and the glittering sparkles that dot it make me think about all kinds of existential bullshit, but sometimes that’s exactly what you didn’t realise you needed to be thinking about.

It’s not about wanting to go out and fix all the world’s problems, or even just seize the day – both which are of course, admirable objectives. Rather, it’s just about being forced to pause, take that deep breath, and think about the entire universe that revolves around you (but not in the way that you know, “you think the universe revolves around you”).

Consider the moon as the glowing, wondrous, curiosity-sparking full stop that you need before you can properly start your next sentence. La luna.

GIVEAWAY: WIN A CASE OF C COCONUT WATER!

March 27, 2013

I’m actually not kidding when I say this is my favourite blog giveaway to date. With this incredibly long endless summer we seem to be having this year, C Coconut Water has been my go-to drink pretty much daily. (In fact, as I sit here typing, I am sipping away merrily). There are a lot of coconut waters on the market, but this one is easily my fave – it’s not artificially sweetened, it has no added sugar and it’s carbon neutral certified. It also just tastes healthy, which I love.

So imagine how exciting it would be to have a case sitting in your fridge right now that you can just access whenever you feel like it? I know.

Thanks to the lovely team at C Coconut Water, this dream is about to come true for one of you who will receive a case of C Coconut Water delivered straight to your doorstep (maybe even your fridge, if you ask the delivery guy nicely).

To enter, just leave a comment below answering the age old question:

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you take with you?

Be sure to leave a contact e-mail address. Giveaway closes at 5pm on the 5th April and is open to Australian residents only. Good luck! x

CONTROLLER.

Spotted this wall of posters on our way back from the National Designer Award presentation at Tiffany and Co this morning (you can read my story on that here). Would love you guys to check out my crazy talented boyfriend’s new album, which is hitting stores (and iTunes) this Friday. I have been listening to it non-stop for the past couple of months and it is actually amazing. Now back to the chaos of fashion week!

WINTER, I LOVE YOU.

February 27, 2013

Oh, winter. I miss you. Chunky knits in super cosy fabrics, a monochrome palette with hints of moody berries, plum and emerald. Wool hats, scarves, furs, splices of leather – and of course, a shoe cupboard full of to-die-for boots. It’s no secret I’m hanging out for the cooler months – I just love winter fashion and all the things that come along with it – hot chocolates, nights spent in on the couch bundled up with a red wine, scented candles burning in every room – even my cat is nicer to me when it’s cold.
