Goodbye 2015

|Comments Off on Goodbye 2015

Preparing for the last day of the year, I can’t help but feel that there are only two major differences between me before and after baby: How I prepare for a night out, and the contents of my hand bag.

Date Night

Date night – a new added feature to my fully changed life that used to be lovingly known as ‘A Whim On A Week Night’. But now, any whims or fancies need careful planning, baby sitters, breast pumps...and frozen back-up milk. What better night to debut my new do?

INTRODUCING – La Confessional

|2 Comments

Secrets are only dirty when we hide them, and embarrassing moments are only embarrassing when we try to pretend they never happened. So I believe, for the style-wellbeing of all of us, we need somewhere to air those dirty little bits of chic-less laundry. La Confessional is a place of solitude, somewhere to go to confess our fashion (or other) sins in a safe and loving environment. The Fashion Priestess will offer her suggested penance, forgive, and then we can all be on our swanky way.

How Modelling Destroyed my Self Image

|Comments Off on How Modelling Destroyed my Self Image

Diminished to little more than a clothes horse with no mind - just a body - I started to blame myself for being 'ugly'. I would compare myself, judge myself and take myself down to a disgustingly shallow level. It wasn’t something I verbalised, but raged against the whole industry till the point where I quit, because I would rather be myself than a wisp of what they wanted me to be. Still the internal battle continued.

Whatever the reason, be it Capitol inspired couture from The Hunger Games or Japanese pop culture, sugar-spun locks have taken the world’s stage in a whoosh of Care Bear colours. This latest craze in hair has been around the block a few times before, but never till now did we see so many iridescent heads bobbing around in our every day crowds. The mainstream runs thick with a tapestry of hues and it’s here to stay.
