I felt like I was back at uni again, studying for an exam that would determine my career . Now that I am 150% certain that a career in fashion is something I am determined to exceed in and something that I’m passionate about, this interview became the most important 30 minutes of my life .
After a whole day at work, studying and preparing more to then talking to myself and practicing my answers and how I would structure my sentences, I was finally there . 30 nerve racking minutes . Though I thought I did rather well I had to wait till 9:30am the next day for the result .
In the mean time my boy took me to dinner at a Polish restaurant in Surry Hills for our one month 🙂 was nice to relax and let my hair out .

Coveted model mentor on Australia’s Next Top Model, Josh Flinn just happened to be standing next to me at the bar in Surry Hills – The Clock Hotel .
Oblivious to anything but my beverage being made in front of me, my sister nudged me and told me to look and see who was standing to my left .
“excuse me, sorry to interrupt but do I know you from somewhere you look familiar?”
“that’s ok!” he replies
“are you on tv?”
He smiles at me
“top model?”
“yes I am!” he replied, followed by a discussion entailing his envy for my hair and a photo!
He was so lovely, the moment I introduced myself he spoke to me as though we were old friends . Sometimes you forget that people with a celebrity status can be normal too .

I hate the limitations my work uniform enforces . It has now developed my hatred for black and corporate attire…when you hate where you work you don’t want to wear anything that associates with your work uniform .
I try to brighten my outfit with my collection of YSL rings, changing them everyday . What to wear tomorrow!?

McQueen, ysl and the countdown until summer .

This winter is becoming unbearable . Aside from the fact I missed 2/3 of winter last year I don’t remember it being this cold! With just a little over 4 months remaining I will no longer need to resort to fake tan 😀

today I’m wearing…

20120716-083424.jpg
arty ring by YSL, skull ring by Alexander McQueen, blue sapphire ring is a sentimental piece, other rings by Jewels by Jacqueline .

The pink YSL was a birthday present I received in Paris last year, the McQueen was a present to myself and the blue sapphire ring was my nonnas ring . The others I found in Byron bay by a local designer – I first discovered her pieces 4 years ago at the Byron Bay markets when I purchased 2 key necklaces . Upon my last visit I managed to find these great rings .
