Stripes.

Happy Easter everyone. This was just a quick outfit I threw together for a day out/gig and I ended up really liking it a lot. Sometimes the simplest, most basic outfits can end up being your favourite. I always try to dress in something comfortable when I go to gigs and stripes are one of my favourite things to wear all year 'round. I was lucky enough to be gifted this one from SheInside and have been wearing it a lot lately. Just take a look at my last blog post! It's definitely going to be a constant in my wardrobe.

Autumn and ASOS.


It's official, it's Autumn. Autumn is my favourite season, the temperatures start to get cooler, the leaves brown and fall from the trees and everything feels just that little bit magical. Recently I teamed up with ASOS to showcase some of their exclusive pieces and let you know of some of the contests they have going on. Currently if you share your 'on campus' looks using the tags #AsSeenOnMe and #ASOMonCampus and tag @ASOS you will be in the running for a chance to win 1 of 3 $500 ASOS vouchers until March 19. Today i'm wearing one of the ASOS Exclusive dresses which i'm loving right now because it's a maxi dress with slits down both sides, which is both sexy and perfect for this kind of weather in Sydney. Hope you like how i've styled this first look. X

You and Everyone You Know // Mental Health Awareness.


On March 3rd 2016
You and Everyone You Know was born. The inspiration behind the project first came to light during a seminar for my Masters in which students were asked to create a social media campaign about something they are passionate about and bring it to life. Instantly I knew I wanted to do this as I have always been passionate about combining my media work with mental health care. Whether or not it had been sitting stagnant in the back of my mind for a while now  I do not know but immediately I brought this idea to action.
My goal was to create a safe hub where people from all over the world, any race, gender, sexuality or age could submit stories of their experiences with mental illness. It is my goal to allow for a deeper understanding of mental illness and a newfound sense of empathy towards others. I want to create a reliable guide of resources that are readily available (unfortunately at this point in time I will be focusing on Australia but I will extend this list internationally as this project expands) to support you or your friends and family in times of need. There are so many fantastic resources available at this time that many may not know about so I am hoping to bring some of those to light.
I will be personally running the Instagram page @youandeveryoneyouknow which will be regularly posting anonymous images and stories of those from all over the world in the hopes of creating a community of acceptance and understanding. Even if it just gets a few people talking and realising they aren’t alone this project will have reached its goal. Please feel free to send in your own stories and anonymous photo (it could be your feet, hands, your eyes etc) and be submitted onto the Blog and Instagram. To submit your story please email youandeveryoneyouknow@gmail.com
Thank you x

Quick Life Update // Masters, Autumn, Hair Cut.

To my absolute pleasure it has now reached my favourite season of the year, Autumn. The air always smells better, the cool breezes are just cold enough for me to wear my favourite coats but i'm also not frozen inside like I am in winter. That said, I am still stuck wearing sleeveless dresses at this point and sweltering over a two minute walk home from the bus stop. Give it a month.

With this new change in season comes another semester of studying my Masters. Only two to go. Funnily enough this makes me really sad. Yesterday was my first day back and I was left pleasantly surprised by just how fascinating and exciting the content was. There's something really refreshing about being in an educational system and not only being talked to and treated like an equal but also being able to work back and forth with your lecturers during seminars and exchange information and stories instead of just simply being talked at. The content is more than simply interesting to me, but something I would willingly choose to study and explore out of enjoyment. I feel really lucky to have found something that motivates me and interests me so much. Not to mention the inspiring people I study with.

I also got my hair cut last week into a shorter bob.
