This morning I had a revelation: you guys barely know me.
Despite starting this blog somewhere back in 2012, I have only just renewed my membership to the blogosphere, and with this newfound passion for posting Every. Freaking. Day. should come with a proper introduction... I mean it's the polite thing to do, right? So here we have it, a questionnaire taken from Vanity Fair via Aussie blogger Hannah.
Currently obsessed with UNIF

Underwear Bonds or Target… creative I know. Though I have recently fallen in love with American Apparel’s lingerie. Sneakers Converse. T-shirts Bonds again. Favourite accessory I am currently obsessed with my Jeffrey Campbell Coltranes. Favourite boutiques I haven’t been boutique shopping in so long! I’m an online shopping devotee (asos, Nasty Gal, Etsy) plus I love Myer, Top Shop, Zara, and any vintage stores/markets/op shops  Favourite print Stripes. They are timeless. Something seasonless Boots. Perfect in winter, but also in Summer with a pair of denim cut-offs and a sense of adventure. Jewellery you never take off I have a necklace my grandparents gave me when I was about 10. They bought it for me on a trip to South America and I rarely take it off. It’s a constant reminder of all the traveling I want to do. Next stop, PERU!

There is this place next to my cousin’s house in rural Victoria, and I have literally spent full days making my way through all the tattered novels Necessary extravagance Travel. And Mac lipsticks. Favourite place in the world Byron Bay. Though I do have a soft spot for Lyon, and I feel like London would quickly become my favourite if I were to visit Favourite Charity I’ve always followed Oxfam closely, mostly because of their affiliation with Coldplay (Chris Martin is a spunk) Favourite movies So many! Love Actually and Notting Hill for my regular dose of British charm(Hugh Grant! Colin Firth!

Best, most decadent breakfast ever: Porridge with banana, raw cacao powder, and peanut butter

Mascara At the moment it’s a Revlon one… Foundation NARS Sheer Glow in Punjab Shampoo Avalon Organics Tea Tree treatment Hair products Coconut oil used as a mask once a week Moisturiser Jojoba oil Fragrance I’m obsessed with Jo Malone fragrances, particularly the Earl Grey & Cucumber cologne Soaps I use a tea tree body wash by The Body Shop. Where do you get your hair cut Lately I’ve been cutting it myself Never leave home without Lucas’ Paw Paw Ointment.
