Last month I had the pleasure of working on a really unique project with Pretty Flamingo Photography for the Ballarat Cabaret Festival. We were to create some iconic imagery, which a graphic artist would use as the basis for the new Festival imagery. I was to play a cabaret character and we would style and pose this character with a distinctive cabaret look.

Red Winter and Women's Conversations

Over the years as I have gotten older I have become more underwhelmed by the many stereotyped and one dimensional representations of female characters on screen. One of the many ways they are often represented in these unrealistic and underdeveloped forms is their boring and dull conversations. If you’re into film, you’ve probably heard of The Bechdel Test. It developed as a joke from a comic strip in 1985 and has three points to it that are used to assess the way a film represents women.

The Great Wardrobe Clear Out

26 Jul 2017


After years of warnings, I've finally committed to clearing out my wardrobe. How much of it? The majority. I'm not even kidding. In the first cull, I took out around one-quarter of the wardrobe and then put it aside. That seemed to open the floodgates. Two more culls later and two-thirds of it was put aside, ready to go to new homes. I'm not sure if I'll stop yet. There are still so many things I don't wear.

Before I tell you about today’s adventure, I must give you the heads up! I’m saving up to go to acting school and so I’ve decided to finally sell a heap of clothes from my wardrobe. I have so far put aside 300 items to sell, fifty of them are already online and a further 50 will be up by today. Heaps of my old favourites are getting put up for adoption, so come and have a browse of over half of my closet!

Yellow and Black

It’s now mid-winter (one of my favourite seasons) and I’ve only just got around to sharing with you this shoot from the very end of autumn. My good friend Jess watched while I edited these pictures and then last night over a wine she demanded to know where they were on my blog. All the events and collaborations in between the shoot and this post had pushed it back. Now I’m looking at the photos with even more joy. I remember once never sharing a series of blog photos because I hated them. When I finally did share them it was so loved that it immediately became one of my most popular posts.
