Last night I went to Todd Sampson’s presentation and it was quite interesting.
These are my notes.
I received a lovely package of some candles a couple of weeks ago from the lovely ladies at Candles by Alexa Rose.
They are now displayed all around my room. Some on my bedside table as you can see in the image above, a couple are also in my book shelves and there’s one on my dresser.
The candles all have different quotes and images on them and the ones I received are so me. They had all my favourite things on them; Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, one had ‘The Juliet Report’ on it, a coffee one and the ones in the photo. These candles are very personal and special and make a such a great gift. They are actually too special and too pretty for me to use.

I think I forgot to mention that in January I got a job as an assistant designer with a menswear suiting company.
yay me !. It has been super, it has been fun, I have been learning so much, and I especially love that it is based in Fitzroy. Fitzroy is such a cool place. There is so much going on, so many cool stores, cool cafes, restaurants, and the people, such a cool mixed bag of personalities.
The studio we work in is on the second level and we can look down onto Smith St, it’s so fun people watching. There are also regulars that you look out for and super fashion people that you always want to catch a glimpse of just to see what they’re wearing on that day.
My favourite place to go to for coffee and to hang out is De Clieu. The coffee is superb, the food is delish (especially the muesli) and the coolest people go there. When I was there the other day I saw this really cool Japanese couple walk in and order takeaway coffee. I wanted to stare at them, but I didn’t want them to see me staring. The woman had a Rei Kawakubo hair style, they both wore Comme Des Garcons looking clothing
which probably is comme des garcons, the guy had the cooolest glasses. I was so inspired by them, that I texted my brother to tell him about them and as soon as I got to work I told the design team about them. Which was interesting because they knew exactly who I was talking about! How about that! They told me that the couple own their own store on Gertrude street called Ess Laboratory and that they have a cute child with the same haircut as the mum.
I totally stalked them online, and will go visit the store in the next week! Anyway, above are some sketches I did, the first is of my De Clieu takeaway coffee that I sketched without looking at the page. And below that is a sketch I did of the ESS Laboratory couple I saw in De Clieu.
In an attempt to draw more I have started carrying around my sketch book with me, and using it as a journal to sketch and document my world. It’s actually super fun! I will try to share as much of is as I can!
Enjoy your Sunday!

More experimentation with Photoshop. So fun. Still using Thom Browne Fall 2013 RTW, because, why not, it’s so fucking amazing.
My favourite album at the moment is Kanye West Presents Good Music Cruel Summer. I watched Kanye when he was on tour in Melbourne and he is all I’ve been listening to lately. What are you listening to?
