Being a VM & Chet Faker


Happy because my hair is still purple, because I'm seeing Chet Faker tomorrow night, because it's my oldest friends 21st on Saturday and because on Monday I get to go back to intern as a Visual Merchandiser at Myer! 


Had my first day at Myer Visual merchandising. It was so much fun! I would really love to work my way up and be able to do this for a living. I look forward to Mondays so much now. This is literally the first internship that I genuinely love. It incorporates everything I love, styling, playing dress up, marketing, decorating, and having creative freedom within your means





This was my favourite set. It was more youth orientated whilst the others were directed at an older target market. I am working alongside the VM in charge of the women's floor, so most of the mannequins we have dressed are for an older target market which is challenging, but I love it! 



I can't wait to go on all the different floors, especially youth!

Have been looking for so long for a small handbag for everyday use. Bought one off Urban Outfitters after looking in stores for so long, and literally the day after I found this bag in Cue, whilst shopping for my friend. It was on sale, and it was the last one, it was fate.



My two favourite things in life, food and Saya. This is a photo of the amazing meal I had with the girls at the Sultan's Table in Newtown before Chet Faker. Try this place, the dips and chicken souvlaki were superb.













Was such an amazing live performance. I have to admit at some points the feels were a bit too strong and I don't think I was in the right headspace that night. But it was still so beautiful. So great just being there in the moment with my best friends. I couldn't ask for much more in life, just wish I felt like I do now, on the actual night.

Ice Skating & Bondi markets


If you are looking for an extremely satisfying Acai bowl, I strongly recommend Heart & Soul Cafe at Cronulla. I have never eaten anything else from this place, and I wouldn't call their coffee heavenly, but they make a damn good bowl. 


How I spend majority of my time. Just give me 5 more Sassie's and call me Miley Cyrus. #goals


Hair progress: I am at the point where I am waiting for my next hair appointment to get my hair at a single tone, white blonde colour, although watching my hair slowly wash out has been quite depressing. I am not going to dye it purple again until then. So at the moment it is a bit of a weird mixture, but I still like it. Can't wait for it to all be one even colour.



Just some behind the scenes shots from my last outfit post. It was so much fun, I can't wait to do it again!





After Lani did my makeup and we played outside taking photos, we decided to go to the city and go Ice Skating.



Winter Wonderland is at Darling Harbour, I think it will be open for a couple more weeks. It was a really great set up.



In some pretty hallway thing that sporadically (my word of the day) snowed. 


The ice skating was so hard! I have only ever skated on those real nice clean indoor places, where the ice is smooth...as ice? What I am trying to get at is that this was nothing like those places. This seemed like the real deal, like what actual ice skating is like in places where it snows. The ice was rough and it was actually such a struggle. The skates I was wearing probably didn't help. But enough complaining! It was so much fun. And you should definitely go check it out!




Why skate when you can selfie? We were for a very long time considering getting one of those little penguins to help us out, but by the time we were set on getting one our time was up. I have to admit, I was so completely jealous of the girls who had brought their own skates. White leather ice skates are so classy.


Ended the night thinking we would pop in to N2 Gelato, only to discover that the line was almost as long as Messina. So I still haven't tried N2. One day. It's definitely on my bucket list.



On the Sunday, Sassie and I met up with Arianne (LolaJagger), Yan Yan Chan (Parfasseux), Vivienne (vko_______) and Alex (Lexypants_) to sell our clothes at Bondi markets. It was a great day hanging with these babes.




There were some really amazing clothes on sale. I ended up breaking even, only because I had to pay $20 for parking! But to be honest I was amazed I sold anything at all, so I was definitely not upset with that. 


Sassie and I met this gorgeous boy outside. Seriously can I please just buy a sausage dog puppy every year for the rest of my life? That's all I want.





Sassie just working at her sales skills. I can't tell you how many times I was asked how much she cost. She literally gets more attention in a day then I do in a week. #cutedogproblems


So you know before how I said I broke even? Yeah well that was short lived. I went to Dan's after the markets to say hey, and to charge my phone so I could get home. As I was leaving I pretty much turned straight onto a brick mortar. The top scratch was how high the mortar was. I literally just did not see it, it was so small. But it packed a mighty punch!


Laters $1000


My hair can look so many different colours in different lighting. Hope you all have a great week, from the girl with the "not sure" hair colour.
