Something a bit girly

Skort- Ally, T- Kmart, Bag- Kamrt, Shoes- Converse, Sunglasses-Live

Is it a skirt or a pair of shorts?? its a pair of shorts that look likes a skirt. I love deceiving little designs like this. If like me you're not a big short skirt wearer, my reason being I like the security of shorts and I'm too active and can't be dealing with worrying if my pants are on show, then something like this is perfect. They're so light weight and floaty they give any tomboy like me a good dose of girlyness. They're so ideal for day with a simple T or night with a blouse or blazer. Also ideal seeing as spring has finally hit Australia, and in particular QLD. Its been spring for about 2 weeks and already reaching 29 degrees. Well Queensland's not called the sunshine state for nothing. I love it love it love it, I can finally use my pool again without freezing.

Military drop

Shorts- oneteaspoon, T- jayjays, Bag- Cottonon, Shoe Converse Sunglasses- Live

I've had a vision for a while about a pair of shorts that have a lace up front. Its not something I've seen a lot of. Whilst browsing through the oneteaspoon sale there they were looking like the holy grail. Lace up, with a buckle AND drop crotch. Enter spasm of excitement and happiness that these exists. I got them in large just because I wasn't sure of the sizing and because you cant return sale items. I love oversized baggy shorts but I'm kind thinking maybe I should have got them in medium. Time to get the needle and thread out.

I think Hanne has too be one of the best dressed models. She really has her own style going on. I love how she wears basics items that have a unique twist and how she combines colours and prints and experiments with different shapes. That jeans and gold jacket, which I think is Zadig and Voltaire, is a winning combo, easy to wear anywhere chilled out rock chick.

Tree chills

Jeans- Oneteaspoon, T-shirt- Jayjays, Shoes- Converse

Quick casual outfit to go check out everyone's favourite turtles, the ninja kind. If your a Teenage mutant ninja fan, lets face it everyone is, go and check out the movie. Its pretty awsm seeing those pizza loving turtle boys come to life. Especially Michelangelo, my favourite, and Donatello, and Raphael, and Leonardo, heck they're all my favourite. I've recently been watching things I used to love as a kid and realizing that they are most likely the reason why I like some of the things I like now. TMNT is why I like ninja stuff, Aladdin is why I like monkeys, tigers, baggy pants and foreign mystical things, same for Mulan and my interest in Asia, Hercules and prince of Egypt, Yu-gi-oh why I like more ancient history,mythological and mystical things, and all of them together why I love culture and travel. Wait, don't they say watching too much tv and cartoons can be bad for you? Well clearly not for me. It seems they are the reason why I like so many of the things I do. I may be 22 but I'm still a huge gigantic kid and nerd deep down, and on the surface really. In the words of Michelangelo COWABUNGA

Quick trip to Sydney

Shirts- Cotton on , Black jeans- Factorie, Ripped jeans- Ally, Jacket- Just jeans, Shoes- Converse

Last weekend I headed down to Sydney again to see my dad one last time before he returns home to England. We went and stayed up on the northern beaches where we used to live. I was so excited over the thought of going swimming again and having a little surf at my favourite northern beaches which are North curl curl and manly, but sadly it didn't happen as it rained all weekend. BOOO. The rain doesn't stop me going for a swim but the absence of swimming flags and being able to see all the rips and how strong the current was mad it a clear nono for a swim. Same for a surf, the current and waves just a little bit too out of my comfort zone.

Dad used too work in bike shop called surf side. When I left Sydney to move to Queensland they were in the process of making a cafe in the front of the shop. We figured we'd go check it out. Its so cute,  50's dinner combined with hard rock cafe inspired with a chessboard floor and old bike memorabilia hanging around. I decided just to get a little treat. I went with the banana and honey on sourdough bread. OOOMMMG  it was heaven. Not completely gluten free but sometimes you gotta indulge.

We then went to see the inbetweeners 2, which I recommend to everyone, especially if your a backpackers, you'll understand the humour so much more.

After we went back to the hotel to chill out for a bit and watched the New Zealand v Argentina game with the intention to head to the pub to watch the Australia v South Africa game. But we decided we were too comfy and just got salad and chicken from the chicken shop around the corner and vegged out.

On sunday we just pottered around manly for a bit then headed to the airport for a last farewell before Dad heads back to the UK. It because of his decision to give it a crack out here in OZ that I was able to come out really. After coming back from Canada I didn't even think about it, but f*** me it has been the best decision ever. I am forever grateful and thankful to my number 1 dude, my dad for this opportunity.

Marc Jacobs and Rodarte s/s 2014

Source:, refinary 29,, tumblr

Two hair and beauty things everyones gone crazy over from New York fashion is this super cute twisted bun mohawk from Marc Jacobs and the punk eyebrow piercings from Rodarte. The buns have been labelled 80s rave, but personally I think they are more 90's therefore making them way more awsm. As for the multiple brow piercings over heavy brows, well its just plain bad ass.

On a fashion note, not too many collections have been making me go wow, but I do love these military inspired coats from Rodarte.
