Latest Stylings

I have recently started a new job teaching dance full time! I absolutely love it but have found dressing for it quite difficult. I enjoy dressing up and love clothes so the restrictions have made me be a little more creative in my style.

Kowtow clothing have been great. An ethically produced New Zealand label. They are stocked in a great local shop Trouble and Fox which I couldn't be without in a small town.

On my wish list is Chronicles of Never

And another great Australian label Bassike

Head bands are practical as well

Japanese Adventures

Sorry for my massive blogging break! Things have been so hectic but I am back online now and very happy to be. My trip to Japan was insane, incredible and life-changing. Many stories...
A few memories to share, biking through alleyways of red lanterns at twilight with my scarf around my face to fight out the cold, tiny dogs in clothing everywhere, cooking pancakes with a carnival man at a festival, walking two hours up to the most beautiful temple in the forest in Kyoto, going to an 8 seater sushi bar where no one spoke any English but we managed and had the best meal of my life with 9 plates stacked high, singing Bonnie Tyler 'Total Eclipse of the Heart' at karaoke.
