My Little Tour

These are not tour photos (Although, you'll be glad to know I've managed to take outfit photos everyday of the tour dresses I've been wearing!) I took these in December last year. 

I'm currently on tour with Vanishing Shapes. We're currently in Brisbane chilling out before this evening's gig. We've been away from home for about a week, most of which has been spent at, or North of Byron Bay.  

It's crazy just how different the climate is up here, mostly the strength of the sun. I've been slathering myself in sunscreen everyday, and have still managed to get a tiny bit burnt. 

Real talk: I know that it's very necessary, especially during summer (and I make sure to wear it when I'll be out in the sun) but I really do not like wearing sunscreen. Even the "non greasy" stuff leaves a greasy, almost dirty film on my skin. Still way better than a sunburn though. 

I've also not had a hot shower since being up here out of choice. I've not been in a place that's too hot for a hot shower before. I've actually really enjoyed the refreshing cool feeling that comes from a cold shower. 

Apart from the weather, tour has been a really creative time. I've done so much painting (which you can see on my instagram) I've also made some jewellery (which you'll get to see in my next post) 

Most importantly, we've had some absolutely killer gigs! We've hit up the temperance society in Sydney, 5 Church Street in Bellingen, and played two ripper house concerts: Byron fine house music concerts, which was an intimate chill out time, and one for the Porch Project in Yandina Creek with a ripper new band called the score (As soon as they have any kind of social media presence I'll be posting about them! They're rad!) We've also spent time on the streets of Byron Bay busking our little hearts out.

I've done a lot of busking in a lot of different places, and I think Byron Bay has been my favourite so far. People actually stop and listen, and chat to you, unlike most other places where everyones in such a rush to be somewhere, and don't have time/patience/cares to have a gander. 

Anyway, I'll be sure to post another update when I can! 

2 Years

As of the end of May I've had this blog for two whole years! It's been really interesting looking back at how my style, photography and writing has changed whilst I've had this internet space. I thought I would mark the occasion by re-posting my favourite outfit from each month over the last year. I meant to post this last month (but everything got super busy surprise surprise). I hope the next year is just as good as the last.

Green Polkadot Playsuit

wpid-c360_2015-01-09-17-59-41-409.jpg This is an outfit I wore a few days ago (probably about 4 days ago actually :s) I don't really remember what it did to be pushed to the bottom of the outfit posting pile, but better late than never I guess?

Actually, there's just something about this outfit which keeps it off my blog. I've worn this playsuit about 5 times in the last 2 months, and this is the first time I've photographed it. Probably because I tend to wear it if I'm going out at night (and by going out, I mean moving from my lounge room to my boyfriends #hermitlyfe) It's super comfy, and super cute. No fuss + super cute after dark = my kind of lazy outfit!

Being a "lazy" outfit does have its drawbacks though. If you've read my blog for a while, you would have noticed that I rarely go without a belt. This playsuit is super duper hard to belt. I settled for a drop waist "punkish" style belting this particular day. I just can't get a waist belt to not look weird.

I also put my hair in pigtails, with two different coloured bows (because no one tells me how to dress!) Even though I'm hating having long hair, I love love love being able to put it in sickly sweet pigtails.

Today I traveled into Newcastle to write music with 3/5 members of my band Vanishing Shapes https://www.facebook.com/vanishapes . It feels good to be writing music again. The last time we were going into writing mode, we had a lineup shuffle, which meant that we had to leave writing in favour of rehearsing. We completed 2/3rds of one piece, and solidified a different theme of another piece. Twas fun yo!
