The Internet is a Pint-Sized Blogger’s Best Friend

The Internet is a Pint-Sized Blogger’s Best Friend

To think I was a mere 12 years of age when I discovered this unfamiliar online portal that allowed me to interact with the world. I knew nothing about writing decent content or how to interact with other users. Social media was fresh communication for me - my friends had just started getting the hang [...]

My Yellow Polka Dot Odyssey

My Yellow Polka Dot Odyssey

And so we enter 2018 - the year of The Dog, my seventh year of blogging and the last of my teenage years. It's going to be a wild one. It's the third day into the new year, and my goal for 2018 is to set more goals. I've made four so far - already [...]

Interview: Romany Bourn

The shy, anxious girl who would dread the camera lens pointed at her direction, is long gone. The scared, self-conscious teenager who covered her mirrors of a night so she wouldn't dare take a peak, is nowhere to be seen. What's left of Romany Bourn is a confident, courageous woman and competitor in this year's [...]

Confessions of a Procrastination Junkie

Confessions of a Procrastination Junkie

Did anyone else blink and miss all of 2017, or was that just me? I vaguely recall doing some online shopping, voting YES in the Marriage Equality Postal Survey, reading some books, and watching Donald Trump make some questionable decisions whilst in charge of America. Somewhere mid-blink, I lost my passion to be organised, motivated, [...]

Interview: Rachel Burke

Once upon a time, I went on the hunt for a unique, glitter-loving artist to spark some inspiration for my own work. Luckily for me, my search was a short one. Based in Brisbane, DIY content blogger Rachel Burke works alongside some of the biggest brands around the world, including Frankie magazine, Splendour in the Grass and Italian Vogue. I noticed [...]

The Time I Met The Love of My Life

The Time I Met The Love of My Life

Is there such a thing as one great love? Or do people have more than that? I suppose you could say "we met at just the right time", or that "fate brought us together", but I don't believe in that. I think we stumbled across each other (we literally stumbled across each other at the local bar) [...]

Even My Anxiety Has Anxiety: Part One

Even My Anxiety Has Anxiety: Part One

It starts in my hands - tingling with pins and needles until I lose the ability to move them. I watch them twitch as they hang immobile by my side. Breathing becomes hard, as if my lungs instantly lose the capacity to circulate air – they’ve given up on keeping me alive. All hearing senses [...]

Anyone starting the new year with a #1 single on the iTunes and Aria charts, second place on triple j's Hottest 100 and a song peaking at 10 million plays on Spotify is more than likely guaranteed a great 2017 - that's the case for one Gold Coast artist who has warmed Australia's hearts. In [...]

98 Artists, 67 Days and 3 Festivals

98 Artists, 67 Days and 3 Festivals

The memory of New Year’s Eve is still so vivid – one stage, one band, thousands of people and hundreds of shoeys. Jumping up and down because you don’t have any option other than moving with the crowd, feeling like your heart will pop out of your chest when the beat crashes out of the [...]

35 Days, 6 Lessons and 18 Years

35 Days, 6 Lessons and 18 Years

35 days later and people still ask, “so, how does it feel?”. To begin with, my answer was blunt and sassy. I don’t know, I feel regular? It’s just another day.. My response was not incorrect. Birthdays are generally just another day. Apparently, the celebrations of entering adulthood is a completely different story. I can’t say [...]
