This week marked 5 years since the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangedesh – where 1,135 people lost their lives due to poor construction, bad auditors and overall, inhumane business strategies. If you have watched The True Cost you will be more aware of the disaster, if you haven’t please do give it a watch – we cannot dismiss what we are crucially a part of and what impact, we as individuals have on our planet and the people on it.

. A love letter to my sunnies .
It was love at first sight. I cannot believe it’s been 6 years. I was a careless collage student roaming around Perth airport when you caught my eye and now an ambitious entrepreneur with an unconditional love for you. Oh how we have grown together. You have been the most reliable item I have ever and will ever own. You never fail to make me look and feel a million dollars. I remember when I lost you while styling one of my first ever shoots and some kind lady handed them in – I don’t know how I would have replaced you. You were my first christmas gift from the love of my life, you were in a box, in a box inside a huge box. I had no idea you were in there. When I’m down, when my eyes are swollen from my sad crying days, when I don’t want eye contact with strangers, when the sun is bright and when it is not, you are there for me. Even though you are battered and scratched (I wish I cared for you better) you still work, your remain in one piece, damaged from life just like your owner, you’ve had some tough times especially when out of your case. But you are there. You are there to pick me up, to grace my face. To give me security and protection always.
I just want to say thank you, and heres to many more years! I cannot wait until I can afford to get mum your twin so she too can feel as amazing as I do when I wear you.
I love you Prada’s

It’s been while since I posted about my dreams, then again, its been a while since I had a dream that I remembered so clearly! Anything you suppress in your waking life comes to haunt you in your dreams, so if there is a particular someone who you’d care to not think about, let yourself think about them, at least for a few minutes a day – That way you aren’t avoiding pure emotions that inevitably effect your conscience Continue reading “My Crazy Dream Last Night pt.2”
Another new section on the blog for random findings that have made me smile the last few weeks

I’ve had cocktails and directed/styled a photoshoot in Cosy Club Birmingham, but I’ve never had food there. When shopping in Liverpool we stumbled upon a never explored Cosy Club which had the same classic 1920s modern new world vibes along with warm and as you’d expect – cosy lighting.
When I think of Barcelona – what stands out to me more than anything is the architecture. The buildings have so much depth and detail, they don’t look or feel real at times. Antoni Gaudi’s impact and influence is wonderfully prominent throughout the city, giving tourists and locals a taste of his unique, innovative mind – all the while taking you back to when Art Nouveau was in its prime. This trip was my first ever holiday with my boyfriend. He’d suprised me for my 18th (over 5 years ago now) as he knew I was researching Gaudi for my FMP during my final year of college. Here is what we got up to. A throwback to Barcelona!
I couldn’t resist jumping to this Instagram tag bandwagon! So great to put faces to work. I’ve decided to do a few to promote my talents and ever-growing portfolio
