A Tribute To Jeans

I’m a jeans girl. I don’t often find jeans that I like or that fit me just as I want them to, but when I do, I wear them until the bitter, worn seams, fraying, faded, torn at the crotch end. When we got to Australia in January, I sadly waved goodbye to wearing jeans.... Continue Reading →

The Truth Behind Selfies

I got into the habit when I was younger of posting a photo of myself before every night out I went on. After spending an hour or two getting ready,  I would then ask my mum or my sister to take a photo of me. I was pretty self conscious so sometimes I’d ask them... Continue Reading →
