Well, well, well. On the positive side, I’m sitting in the Koru Lounge right now and my laptop has almost full battery. On the other side, it has been a pretty full-on draining, past 20 hours. I had my Vanishing Elephant/Area 51 event last night (which, by the way, went great aside from a public frustrated-cry – you know the kind – by me). I drank. I went out. I got home in a not exactly sober state. I semi-packed my bags. I slept. I rose three and a bit hours later, put on this really weird outfit I can’t even show you right now, put more clothes in my bag and drove towards the airport. Then I remembered I had forgotten something. So I drove home, got it, drove back towards the airport. Got near the airport, and despite my mom telling me about three times that I had to stay in the left lane to go to the long-term carparking, I stayed in the right lane and went to the wrong place. I tried to leave, then got in the wrong lane, ended up driving towards the domestic terminal and having to do this weird roundabout u-turn. Back to the long-term carparking which was packed. Finally got to airport to find a shit show of people. People everywhere, all the self-check-in machines breaking, including the one I was in line for and the one I lined up for after the first one broke. (Note to self: Listen to your father when he tells you to only take check-in luggage when travelling for one night only. It would’ve saved a tonne of time and effort.) Finally get through, up the stairs, straight to McDonald’s where I had a Bacon & Egg McMuffin (it’s the only time I allow myself McDonald’s breakfast) and a Tank juice and now I’ve made it to the Koru Lounge and I have 20 minutes until my flight boards and this was the longest story ever and I didn’t even split it into paragraphs or spell check it and it probably doesn’t even make that much sense because I’m hungover. The end.
Oh, PS: I’m going to Sydney today. Back tomorrow. Tell you about it later.

How did you get into modelling and how long have you been doing it?
I’ve been modelling since I was 14. My sister was a model and introduced me to Amanda at Red 11 when I lived in Hawke’s Bay. I moved to Auckland and started then.

Some looks from Vanishing Elephant's first womenswear collection - launch party Thursday! Image/Me for Area 51.
Homies, listen up. There’s a lot going on right now – not just for me, but for everyone who is into clothes and fashion and the like. Being the good blogger I am, I’ve narrowed down the events to the things I think you should all attempt to attend:

Lots of things have been happening over the last month. The freelance lifestyle, whilst fun, is also quite a juggling act. In addition to a whole lot of personal life crisis type sh*t that you don’t need to (or want to) hear, there’s been a few work things going on that have taken up a bit of my time.
Firstly, I’ve been organising and shooting a couple of little things, including Area 51′s S/S Lookbook (which took place yesterday – you can see some behind the scenes action on their instagram). The other one I can’t talk about yet. Next week there’s going to be a little event on that I’m helping host, so keep your eyes out if you want to be invited. A lot of my time has been spent on a little collaboration piece I’m doing with Little Brother which comes out at the start of October (you may have worked it out already if you’re clever at the internet - while you’re at it, ‘like’ the page whydontcha?!), and in between my usual blogging and freelancing, I’m also a contributor to The Sunglass Hut’s ‘Inner Circle‘ site which is taking me to Sydney for a lunch next week. High flying, right?! If you add all of these things together and mix in new initiatives for the blog (thanks to those who have been giving me business advice**), preparation for New Zealand Fashion Week, and a trip to New York (which also involves a little bit of fashion week-ing), you can see how things fall by the wayside.
Please bear with me, I promise the content is going to get better*!
Happy Wednesday readers.
