alice.








so finally. here are the alice mcall shorts that i've been meaning to show you! they're so cute and tricky, because they look like a skirt, but they're just awesomely pleated loose falling shorts. i guess they're skorts. and they're majorly cool. not to mention majorly tight around the waist. certainly not something you want to wear to dinner. and along with it i put this denim dress that jordan got me once from thailand. i actually ripped the sleeves off, which just means i will get more wear out of it this way :) and the neckalce looks great, until you touch it, and its light and cheap and plasticy. or something just not nice anyways. but it looks cool. and that's what i want. so we can thank diva for that one. hopefully it will live its $25 worth! and finally i put it with a pair of converse chuck taylors.. i remember buying these shoes in year 9. there was a converse sale in harbour town, and for some reason i thought it would be a good idea to start 'collecting' them. so when my 'collection' hit four i felt overwhelmed, and came to my senses a little. simple usually wins, but in this instance i felt like once again, being cool. or at least attempting. and i do love how they work with it. and there's the bonus of comfort!
so there you have it.
see you soon.

darn these titles.






american apparel top. vintage shorts from pigeon hole. sewellery necklace. gorman shoes.

so this necklace i received from my sister for christmas. in fact i received 3 gifts with skulls on them this year.. im not sure what that should mean. anyways. i really quite enjoy this. i probably wouldn't have bought it myself, but i'm highly grateful that she got it for me, and i try and wear it with everything. many compliments. although equally as many weird looks. i love it. and these shoes my cousin gave me, just because she didn't wear them any more. and to think i was just about to purchase them. so that was a ginormous blessing.. it's great having trendy family members. this whole outfit i wore to a gig on saturday night, which was super fun. and speaking of gigs, the boys and i have been doing a few lately and we are loving it. every time i perform i realise just how much i love it. we've made a facebook page too with our demo and just some gig details etc. so if you'd like to be a good person, you should click here and like us hehe. thankya.

ps margaret court

hi dear friends.





i've decided to do a post that i've never really done before. something a lot more informational, and probably expressing my beliefs far more than i ever have. so here goes.
i'm sure many of you are aware of the hype that has been raised around margaret court and her views on gay marriage lately. and as most of you know (or have gathered by now) i am a christian. i actually attend ps margaret's church. victory life centre. i know her personally and i have seen the work that she has done with the community of perth, and with helping people all around the world. it makes me so so heart broken to see the horrible things that people have said about her. apart from the fact that they are completely untrue and blown right out of scale, it's highly hypocritical to abuse someone over having a conviction of something. i have read about people calling her names and saying she is a horrible woman full of hatred towards gay people, and i just couldn't be quiet about it.
i'm crying as i write this, because i have seen her be a mother to so many people, and these words are just so far from true. ps margaret has never once said a harmful word about homosexuals or deemed it as a disgusting act or anything of the sort. but the fact that she is standing up for something has made people go mad. the thought of changing the name of the arena from the greatest female tennis player the world has ever seen, i think is highly irrelevant and completely dishonourable for such an outstanding, well deserved achievement. it has been a known fact for years that margaret court is a christian, and has been ministering for so long. it is also a known fact that christians believe that god ordained heterosexual marriages. so why is everyone suddenly shocked that she is standing by the god that she has been serving for so many years?
from my own experience, god will change your life. to be honest, i would absolutely not be the person i am today, or be in the position i am in, if it wasn't for my relationship with this god that i now know as my father. ps margaret feels the same. but i understand, it is hard to try and accept someone's beliefs on something when you have never experienced it or even heard about it in any detail. but if we are so wanting equal rights, then what exempts ps margaret from that category? i feel as though we are told that we're all entitled to an opinion concerning gay marriages, that is, unless we disagree. then you're deemed hateful. but isn't that then discrimination in itself.
i guess what i'm trying to say is, whether you believe in gay marriages or not. ps margaret is a human being. she is a loving wife, mother and friend. and i just hope that people will see her heart. that she really does love all people, yes, that means ALL people, no matter what you've done where you've been or how you live. and i am proud of her for being able to still stand for what she believes, whether you agree or not, even among all that is coming against her. i mean. that's why they're protesting isn't it? for their belief?

on a lighter note. i too love you ALL.
be back with a pretty picture post soon. thanks guys.

maurie and eve..







wearing. maurie and eve jeans. tbox singlet. pigeon hole bag.
so i love my new camera. and i think i've decided the redo the post ive been telling you about with the alice mccall shorts. and im totally finishing the makeup videos today, so you can finally get them. im terrible with this whole time thing. soo i got these jeans at david jones on boxing day. i had never realised how many people do their christmas shopping on boxing day. it really baffles me. but the thing i love about the jeans i guess is the hectic patterned-ness. and i wear jeans a lot so it's always fun when they're fun. but they are cropped, and occasionally make my legs look midget like. but overall, i really enjoy them. ooh. and im sure you all would never notice. but after heading to the beach house with my friends, i spent probably the most time i've spent at the beach/sun in my life in a few days. and i have never seen my face so freckly in my life. so i put that close up in just so you can see them.
yeah. i don't know. i thought it would be cool. haha.
see you soon yall.
