For Halloween this year, Jack and I decided to dress up as seapunks. If you (like most of the party's attendees) are unsure of what I'm referring to, please do educate yourself by reading this delightful article, here. To achieve the seapunk look for yourself, begin with sequins. Lots of sequins. Sadly, my bottom half is not visible in the picture above, but I've attached a run through of exactly what I wore at the end of this post. As you can see, my skirt resembled that of a mermaid's tail. As Jack wasn't all that comfortable with the notion of wearing a skirt, he ended up rocking my sequinned Made by Makers Zeppelin tee (better than I ever could). If you really want to immerse yourself in the trend then by all means, dye your hair pink, purple, green, teal, aqua or all of the above. For those of you that want something a little less permanent, then grab a packet or two of Scunci Hair Chalk. Considering that we both have rather dark hair, I didn't think it was going to even work, but with a few experiments we discovered that for a seriously intense look, you merely need to crush the chalk up, add a dash of water and rub it through your hair. Add a crop top, a bindi (or ten) and an inflatable dolphin to carry around at all times, and you have yourself a seapunk.

Wearing Lover dress, Toi Et Moi leather jacket (similar here & here), Wanderlust & Co rings (The Heart & Infinity Knot) and Yvonne Koné boots.On the 29th of October 2013, one of my closest friends, Chloe Nour, married the love of her life and I cried like a little girl. The ceremony and reception were held in the Southern Highlands, on a beautiful property known as Montrose Berry Farm . The rolling lawns were adorned with Mexican themed decorations and draped with beautiful lights that glittered above the tables. As you can imagine, the entire celebration was breathtakingly beautiful, as were the bride and groom (in all seriousness, they're in insanely good-looking couple). Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Freeman, I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of dropping by the Glue Store at Sydney's brand-spanking-new Central Park (that place is fancy as, y'all should seriously check it out). We began with a grand tour of the multi-level store, which includes a phone charging station, record store (turntables included) and more rad apparel than you can poke a stick at. Shortly after, I was treated to an hour-long shopping spree. Yes, you read that correctly. An hour's worth of heavenly retail therapy. It honestly felt like all of my Christmas's had come at once. Thank you to the amazing team at Glue for helping me find the perfect pair of high-waisted black skinnies and to the lovely ladies at Tailormaid for the amazing opportunity!

I've been rather obsessed with the delicious leather goods on offer from New Zealand label, Deadly Ponies, for just about as long as I can remember. The Mr. Penny Pouch (pictured above) has been on my wishlist ever since I noticed it sitting pretty upon a rack at Incu. I immediately walked up to it and began stroking the buttery-soft deer skin leather exterior. I should also point out that I was by myself at this stage, making me look even crazier than I actually am. Fast forward 12 months and I finally have one of these bad boys in my hot little hands. Thanks to the insanely lovely team at Deadly Ponies, I can now stroke my sexy (and surprisingly large) handbag in the privacy of my own home. That sounded far creepier than I intended it to. Get ready for a barrage of Instagrams of said bag, and don't say I didn't warn you.
Glassons have seriously upped the ante, having already enlisted Adam Bryce as their Creative Director and bringing ultra babe Petra Collins on board for their latest campaign. The behind the scenes video above features a myriad of insanely rad clothing and so much film camera porn that by the time the two-minute video was over, I was drooling all over my keyboard. I also found myself googling 'pink flamingo boats'. I kid you not.
Feast your eyes on the absolute glory that is Anna Rogulj, sans hair and make up, shot on 35mm film. Anna has to be one of the hardiest models I've ever come across - willing to lay down on the seediest of surfaces, just to get the right shot. Needless to say, this girl was an utter dream to work with. I shot Anna for a collaboration with Pages Digital, where I was fortunate enough to test out the new Leica RAW camera. I also managed to capture Anna on a few rolls of film, this image simply being a sneak peek of what's to come.

For those of you that know me, you'll be well aware of that fact that I love food. I'd also hope that most of you know by now that farshun is my life #fashtag. So, when Westfield Sydney approached me to collaborate with them on an exhibition titled 'Food is Fashion', I couldn't say no. The job description involved me shooting a myriad of well-dressed shoppers within the centre over a period of two days. The final 17 street style shots will be paired with images of some of the finest dishes being served within Westfield Sydney. Displayed on Levels five & six, the exhibition runs for three weeks, commencing on the 25th July and finishing on the 15th of August (for those of you that are terrible at maths). HOPE TO SEE Y'ALL THERE, MIS AMIGOS.
