Though I’m a devout believer in divine intervention, I’m also a champion of willpower. If your will to take drastic steps to change your life (or the course you’ve been walking) is strong enough, then you might just experience the magic that was destined to arise. What I mean is if you’ve been living comfortably yet unsatisfactorily, it’s probably time to step out of your safe space and do things you’re insecure with – this is the best route for growth. And strive to continuously drive up the amount of insecurity in your life. Without doing so, you will never… READ MORE

These series of images were originally shot for The Clinic on Zanita Studio when I had my first laser skincare treatment back in Sydney, but as my photog and I stumbled through the shoot, I was nostalgically thrown back to my grassroots. One of the very first reasons I fell madly in love with the influencer industry is because “bloggers” were real people doing real shit – and by real, I mean ordinary. People like you reading this and me. I have overzealous respect for “ordinary people” making cool things happen because it means so much more… It’s kind of… READ MORE

Falling into despair and feeling downright discouraged are emotions I’m all too familiar with. In my past life though, I’d never talk about it and I really didn’t have anyone to talk about it to, so I’m a huge proponent of being that one person for the people around me. And why I’m sharing this story with pictures of fellow blogger and personal friend, Genny, it’s because she was the inspiration for it. It’s been massively refreshing to have someone to talk to about blogging – the good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly. So thank you Genny. This… READ MORE

The last two years have really tested my resilience, patience, and tenacity. To my own surprise, I’m still here trudging through the harrowing conflict. I’ll save details for another day (maybe even year) when it doesn’t feel so close to home, but I thought it’s time for a status check – mainly to kill the radio silence. And since I’m soaking in a huge introspective period (when am I not?), let’s wax poetic on what to do when life gives you lemons… Perseverance is everything. If there’s anything I’ve learned in the process of major life transitions, it’s to keep… READ MORE

If your fashion sensibility leans traditional, you might be dazed by the comeback of so many ugly things lately… Grandma heels. Frayed, embroidered, or patchwork denim. Slides (i.e. Birkenstocks, mule flats/loafers, and fur). Fanny packs. Flatforms (i.e. creepers). Patent leather… Whatever ugliness sticks out in your mind, I’ve got a feeling you know exactly what I’m talking about. Before I get into the gist of it though, let me preface by saying you will never find me in dreadful Crocs or Uggs – those very two things are outside the boundaries of what I deem visually acceptable. And even then,… READ MORE
