Shots of Paris

[photo is not my own]

It might sound like a weird fascination but ever since I travelled overseas I love nothing more than to browse through shots of other peoples travels. 

On one of my little web adventures I found an amazing website,, the website features numerous shots of paris that are so great she's even made a book of them!

Time to party

Over the weekend I went to an event like no other, it was a street party, yes you heard correctly a party on the street. And this one was legal!

The party was at Fitzroy, Melbourne, and everyone was welcome with a minor cost of $25. Venturing out to the other side of Melbourne my friend and I got slightly lost, and followed what we thought was live music to abandoned factories. Not a good start.

Once we were on the right track and could undoubtedly hear the heavy beating of a drum kit each lane we turned down had graffiti art more impressive from the last. As soon as we hit Elliot St the indie-ness of the event was like a slap in the face. Boys were sporting ponytails and buns, with hair much prettier than mine! And girls were donning outfits commonly seen in the 80s. Beanbags and mats scattered the street and people lounged and grooved to their hearts intent. The wine pops and mexican food were on hot demand and deliciously handmade icey-poles were being quickly devoured.

The Drunk Mums chaotic tunes blasted through the street and had party goers dancing all round. The DJ's offered a more casual response and patrons were seen lounging in the afternoon sun. I, a man and Them Swoops also had their share of playing the street and did not disappoint.

For my first street party Razzmatazz certainly didn't disappoint and I'll definitely be back. Let's hope we can get away with this again, legally.

Getting On

[photo is not my own]

It's been a while since I've felt this proud of myself.
I really feel like I'm accomplishing some good in my life, good things that are slowly getting me towards what I want to do in life. For a while there it just felt like I was treading water.

I've just had my first stories/articles published. I couldn't be happier. I'm a writer and member of the editorial team for my local youth magazine and the first issue has just been published, full to the brim of creative articles and lovely matte pages. What's even better is that I'm working as Project Manager for the next edition, that means communicating with the publisher, designers and writers. It's pretty full on but exactly what I want.

Two other stories of mine are also getting published in my Universities magazines (we have 4, seems a bit over the top to me!). The stories are both completely different but I'm equally proud of them.

The media industry is such a tough industry to break into so I'm just glad I'm slowly getting there, teeny step by step.

I have a dream of owning a car just like this.

Of travelling to New York.

And singing in a voice as haunting as Lykke Li's.

Oh my, Mecino!

[photos are not my own]

While on the hunt for a gift for my friends birthday I frequented a lot of markets, looking for the perfect gift. And I found it.

With delicate and reasonably priced jewellery Mecino's work is truly one of a kind. Their jewellery ranges from necklaces to earrings and are made in delicate bronze and silvers. Owls and birds are a frequent across their range, with the exception of this wonderful octopus necklace which I am in love with.

Safe to say my friends birthday present is sorted, as well as a present for myself.
