the week that has been

Hi.

I had the best week. I hope yours was also super. I decided to share it all in one post because I can never keep up with everything. How crazy.

The best part of the week was that Zoe Foster and I have become BFFL. (it’s not really true, but I wish it was). I posted about her and emailed her and did a watercolour illustration for her of her new book “The Wrong Girl” (which I actually also read this week and thought was a very good, relevant, fun, friendly and a very present day book) (Also at this point you’re probably thinking I am a crazy stalker girl and poor Zoe, but I’m not. I just like her. And think she’s nice. And that’s all.) and guess what she posted my illustration on her Instagram and made my whole life. Haha. It was actually so nice of her to do.

This screenshot is to prove that what I said is actually all for real. And so you can see my illustration.

At uni, I learnt how to make lace using illustrator.

At uni, we also were lucky enough to have a lecture by Simone Cipriani and Karen Walker.

I went to Gelato Messina with my friend Kate. This time I had the Salted Caramel with White Chocolate. Yum. It seems a visit to Messina is a weekly ritual now. Awesome.

On Thursday night I fell asleep at 5:30pm and didn’t wake up until 9:30am on Friday.

Friday I went to Zumbo and had the Dr Dot cake with my friend Maxine. We shared it. It was perfect. That was all before we went to the RiverIsland x The Iconic Fashion Show at Prahran Town Hall. Which was actually so fun. The funnest fashion show. It starred Ajak Deng. There was a massive, perfectly round pink balloon. Live singing by Kiyomi Vella. And a sparkling confetti shower at the end.

I got super excited when I realised APC had opened at QV and decided to not ever eat again so that I could have “APC Money”, aka money to shop at APC.

And then last night I went to the National Graduates Showcase as part of VAMFF (virginaustraliamelbournefashionfestival) and was in awe, was inspired by the talent. Being in my second year of fashion design and watching those incredible pieces being walked down the runway was a very valuable experience as it’s pretty much the benchmark and I was basically thinking that is how good I need to be.

Super cool right, i know.

I have been paying more attention to my beauty routine and have been noticing positive changes. With both my hair and face. Thanks to Zoe’s tips. I have used the L’oreal mousse which I sketched a few posts ago, and the dry shampoo and now i always have nice clean pretty hair. And somehow it’s actually healthier and shinier and softer than usual/ever. Maybe because I haven’t had to dry the crap out of it and also not having to constantly straighten it, maybe.

And my face, it’s also softer, my pores are not as visible and my makeup goes on better and my skin isn’t as dry or flaky as usual. So do yourself a favour and go on Zoe’s blog and read it, all of it because basically she has done all the hard work of finding and trying things out for you. It’s easy and also the products she recommends aren’t as expensive as the products that I thought I would need to use to have nice skin. I hope that makes sense.

I bought rosehip oil today to try and use as a serum and anti-eye-wrinkle. I bought it from David Jones, and the lovely Suzy was working there (I used to work with Suzy, she is supercool) ย and told me it is amazing and incredible and she also recommends it too.

Thanks for hanging in there. Enjoy your Sunday.

  1. It’s fantastic that Zoe Foster shared your drawing – you’re very talented! I’m really looking forward to reading her new book so I’m glad to hear it’s good! Sounds like you had a fabulous week x

    1. I know. I didn’t expect her to. She’s so so lovely. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m trying! Yep, I recommend the book, I’m not trying to sound wanky but I’ve been reading a lot of classics and when I started reading it I thought it was a bit light. But as I read on I started to really enjoy it. The characters are very relatable and likable. ๐Ÿ™‚ I did. Hopefully this week will be a bit more relaxed. Hehe x
