SHOP MY LOOK
Having always sort of taken a less nothing is more approach to my beauty routine, I learnt early on that in order to be this embarrassingly lazy when it comes to beauty things, you need to have a strong base… and by that I mean if you are going to wear barely any make-up on a good day, your skin better be on point. I’m talking perfectly smooth, glow-y, and preferably hairless…
When it comes to wearing jeans… which is, well – every single day for me, I always, always want to be comfortable.
With winter well and truly underway in Melbourne, it’s pretty important to have that extra layer of warmth when leaving the house, particularly on those icy cold mornings. Although most fashion people always say they love winter because they love winter fashion – the layering, the coats, the OTK boots etcetera etcetera – surprisingly, it has actually never really been for me. As a true summer-gal at heart, I find winter – or more specifically, winter fashion quite difficult. I don’t like having to wear a stack of layers but alternatively I despise being cold.
Having always loved to take photos, be in photos or even just be around when photos are happening, it was no surprise that I found myself taking photos (albeit primarily of myself) for a living, what was a surprise though is that between all the content production, collaborations, photoshoots and I guess really what should actually be referred to as ‘work’ (although it never really feels that way), I sometimes forget to take photos – just for the sake of taking photos! You know, the kind of shots you take purely for memories or just because. So with a sudden urge to get back into taking photos just because – I thought I’d bring around a disposable camera with me for a week to encourage me to take more photos just for fun! Plus, a disposable camera felt so very fitting as when I was a kid I could barely get enough of them. I would quite literally bring a disposable camera to school/camp/any-somewhat-social-activity-happening-in-the-life-of-a-10-year-old and the spend the following week begging my mum to go get it developed ASAP. Ironically, a lot of the photos I took were of myself all dressed up in different outfits I had put together using clothes from my mums wardrobe or clothes that I had made – but that is a story for another day. So anyways, here you have it – my week from the eyes of a disposable camera. The quality is kind of questionable, compared to the usual DSLR and I chose not to edit or process any of the photos, which again I thought was a nice change from my more curated content.
