Photo 1: I had this cool idea to visit as many yoga studio’s in Melbourne as I can. One I had been wanting to try was Yoga 213 in South Yarra, so that’s the first one I went to and I don’t think I will bother going anywhere else. I am enjoying it so much. It is the most perfect place for me. The actual Yoga practice is excellent, it’s so challenging and I am so inspired by the poses that the teachers have shown me. All the staff are super amazing. I was a bit intimidated to be honest, and worried I couldn’t manage it, but the teachers are so helpful and nice that I just love it. And my most favourite thing, they play Hip Hop beats while doing Yoga, if you know me, you will know this is basically heaven on Earth for me. I love Hip Hop. So this first photo is of a painting of Biggie which is on the wall in Yoga213.
Photo 2: After Yoga I tried the new cafe that had opened on Chapel Street; Lucky Penny. It is a really great space, I enjoyed my coffee and I resisted because I’m trying to eat healthier, but there is a very irresistible cabinet filled with sweet treats. I was just thinking how annoying that when I lived in South Yarra there weren’t many cool cafes to hang out in, and now since I moved away all these cool ones have popped up, oh well.
Photo 3: My new notepaper pad from Kikki K, I am signed up with them and they gave me a $10 voucher for my birthday, so nice of them. I have millions of unused notepads, but I love the colours and designs on these, it’s so fun making notes on it. And the book is a Feminist Philosophy book by Iris Marion Young. I have been reading the essays in it lately and it has been answering some of my questions and also making me ask different questions. I really like it and would recommend it to anyone who likes reading interesting things.
p.s. I’m playing with the way I write my posts, the idea was to write less, but it didn’t turn out that way, hehe. Have a fun weekend.

So as you can guess from the title, I have decided to give myself a new project.
One photo a day for 365 days.
In this photo I am showing you what I learnt to do today at Fashion School. We learnt a hand sewing technique for attaching a hook and eye. In the picture is the eye. I am told this method was invented by Cristobal Balenciaga.
I’m absolutely loving my new lens. I took my camera around with me which is always so fun. I just wish it wasn’t so heavy!
I had no plans today but the day folded out quite nicely. I went to work, met my parents for a late lunch at Riverland by the Yarra. Then I went to the Palace Cinema and watched Paris-Manhattan. I became a member of Palace Cinema so that I can reach my goal of watching 365 movies this year. My original plan was to watch a movie a day but everyone around me told me it was a silly idea and that I couldn’t do it. And I listened to them, so I decided I’d change it and still aim to watch the same amount of movies. Which means I’ll have to have movie marathons quite often, and I have no problem with doing that. I’m quite excited actually, about both the film challenge idea and also becoming a member of Palace Cinema.
I took a flyer titled “Your Summer film guide” I’ve already ticked off two out of 12 films. Here’s the list:
hi. yesterday i pretty much worked on my folio all day. i thought i’d try some fabric rendering because i hadn’t done it in a while. i used markers and watercolors. I hadn’t used watercolor before, so i was kind of guessing about what to do next. it was actually a lot of fun and i’m happy with how they turned out.
i did this hourly photo diary, so at each hour i took a photo of what i was doing. hope you like this.
i had one song on repeat the whole day. new day by jay z and kanye best. ( i know kanye’s name is west but i like best best ;) )
