One of Many Philosophies Concocted by a Disturbed Young Delinquent

i love Australia more than anything on theis entire planet.
I'm happy to be here. here. alone. here. alone.

This one is to those that once were. That once were, how we all once remember - weightless and carefree. This one is to those in dark corners, in places of perdition, in rooms in need of solace. This one is for the wondering souls of earthly purgatory; of replaced lovers on corner benches - to those whos love is long forgotten and seldom told

For those that have been forced out of familiar territory.
May it be a home,
An idea,
A life.


What inclination do I have to identify myself with any politically designated surface of this earth? FUCCCCCCCCKKKK its taken. its taken.

i'm going to Serbia this weekend. im not talking to anyone australian from 10:30 tonight (after the party) till sunday morning. Short trip, i know. but its well needed.


i love you.

Happy 90th Birthday Grandma!

so i've just finished whipping up the biggest chocolate mud cake i've ever made in my life (with 700g of pure chocolate!, i know right!) for my Grandma's 90th birthday and it made me think.. where the flip do "birthday cakes" come from?! i did some research:

In classical Roman culture, 'cakes' of flat rounds made with flour containing nuts, leavened with yeast, and sweetened with honey were served at special birthdays. In early Europe, the words for cake and bread were virtually interchangeable; the only difference being that cakes were sweet while bread was not.

During the 17th century, the birthday cake took on more or less its contemporary form. However, these elaborate cakes, which possessed many aspects of contemporary cakes (such as layers and decorations), were only available to the very wealthy. Birthday cakes became more and more proletarianized as a result of the industrial revolution, as materials and tools became more advanced and more accessible.

so there you have it. it seems EVERYTHING traditionally western goes back to medieval/renesance Europe.

have a great weekend

Where's the black?

Hey.. and sorry for being away for a while.. I'm back from my 3 day getaway that I really did not have time for.. resulting in now being totally stuck, forcing my self to finish school work before next weeks deadline..

anyway Sydney was awesome and inspirational, the days totally flew by.. I'll get to go back in a few weeks, but before that I get to enjoy the first show of Through a Glass Onion showing at the Performing Arts Centre tomorrow. very excited.

visited so many placed, including NIDA and Sydney Theatre Company with the most amazing people, ate at some of the most amazing places and naturally did a lot of shopping. Now I'm finally back home with a photo filled laptop, so stay tuned. Some from nights-out, some the city, i also scored new Therapy boots and an overdose of oversized black things.

Trend Spotting

Hey guys. with autumn/winter fast becoming, i thought id let you in on some key trends for the next seasons looks. im going to sydney next week for my studies, and will be hitting the QVB for some serious retail therapy. (as if i hadn't done enough in bali hahaha) im trying to enroll in the "australian college of professional styling" to do a 12 month distance diploma of film, tv and fashion styling, hopefully to be completed by the end of year 12.... (i dont want to do it after school, as its waste of university time so its now or never) :)

Naturally, as 2011 rolls on, I'll continue to update fashionisers with new information, and more importantly new inspiration, for spring 2011's trends and how to wear them. So do check back often, and read on to find out what spring 2011 has in store....

#1 - SOPHISTICATED 70'S (vintage)
We all want that vintage vibe in our wardrobe. That essence of an era gone by. And we want to cherry pick the sleekest, sexiest, and most stylish looks from it. In recent years we've worn the best of the 20s and 30s, seen the rebirth and fading of an 80s come back, and we're just about to do it all again. But this time, its the 1970s that are due for a reinterpretation. However, i don't know wether to think its a shame we aren't all that inspired by 'naughties' style (the 2000's) or to enjoy the rebirth of vintage clothes!! im so glad my mums older. i can wear so many 70's couture and look like i've just walked out of NYFW. but only out of albury

#2 - PUNK

I like to write about certain kinds of fashion trends. Trends that marry all the qualities of an appealing lifestyle, that marry together quality craftsmanship, elegance and an an attitude towards a life that indulges the senses and you know roughly where my tastes lie. HOwever, there is just some style that i simply can't ignore. And that's because they have an impact on other trends that are important to me.

One such trend is punk - a trend that last emerged in 2010 and one that will continue to influence the fashion aesthetic of 2011 and potentially beyond. Partially filling the vacuum left behind by done and dusted trends, such as the likes of military, gothic and grunge, it's punk's ability to impact on other trends, such as 2011's motorcycle chic trend (the stronger and more versatile of the two trends), that makes it worth watching and noting. but only out of albury

#3 - 60'S LADYLIKE
It's no great accident that the popularity of Mad Men has coincided with a resurgence in early '60s fashion. in facet, im hearing it from the loungeroom at the moment! A sartorial inspiration to men and women alike, we've seen an avalanche of elements from the era spill over into fashion's impressionable mind; and the bulk of the torrent is yet to come. For women with hourglass figures like myself, 60's fashion can be extremely flattering.

So say bonjour to fuller figures and longer hemlines as the skirt and dress silhouettes of the late '50s / early '60s swing their way back onto the scene as a 2010 / 2011 fashion trend. YAYYYYYYYYYY. but only out of albury.

#4 - SHEER

And i mean Maxi Dresses! Want to start building up you 2011 wardrobe well in advance of spring 2011? Then put your money where i definatley would: on a fusion of maxi dresses and the sheer fashion trend. i found the perfect one at Gen Pants Company in Sydney. and under $80.
