SharkieCon Australia 2014!

It feels like only a few days ago that the Black Milk Birthday Party antics were wrapping up for 2013… and yet here we are now just recuperating from the sheer insanity that is SharkieCon!!

The first SharkieCon to hit Australia, this was truly a weekend to be remembered!

I spent the weekend sunning myself by the pool at Aloha Waters with five beautiful women who really made the weekend extra special. Our holiday house was beautifully appointed and was on the canal at Broadbeach Waters.  This was truly a restful and luxurious retreat, perfect for a girls weekend away!

We made the pilgrimage to Brisbane for the Birthday Party, this year held at the Queensland Museum; what a venue!

I had my makeup done by the wonderful Sarah Kay, she always looks after me for my creative make up needs! I stocked up on bindis and we got quite sparkle happy with my unicorn makeup look for the night 🙂

I wore my custom unicorn play dress, I call it the “Lexie Play Dress” – it was made for me as a goodbye gift when I left Black Milk a few months ago (and I adore it!). I also wore the Black Milk En Pointe Tulle Skirt which is such a gorgeous and flattering piece.

Sharks, whales and underwater creatures surrounded the partygoers in many rooms, an aerial gymnast curled and floated on her ring suspended from the roof, and beautifully costumed ethereal creatures on stilts walked amongst the sharkies who were dancing like there was no tomorrow!

All in all, a spectacular time, and I cannot wait to do it all again!!

long distance love affair, pt. II

There’s a timid sense of wanderlust within me that sparks up every now and again, and keeps me on my toes. This year I’ve had a  few toe-tinglings for Perth, one of my favourite locations.

The coastal suburbs of Western Australia are the most supreme combination of bush and beach, two of the most grounding elements in my life. This makes WA the perfect place to recharge my batteries!

My bestie snapped these shots when I was doing just that, earlier in October. We scouted through miles of seaweed and mermaid’s purses to find the most delightful sea shells, and we even encountered a contently snoring seal on a secluded part of the untouched shore.

Happy wandering,

square eyes.

I have hump day blues! Or greys… in this case.

I felt like I was camouflaging too much into my office, staring deep into the soul of the iMac screen. So I took a quick break to jump around outside, warm my numb air-conditioned toes and breathe in the busy city air.

Being outside always cheers me up 🙂
