THE HANGED MAN

I am a scientist with a fascination for reading about tarot card meanings online. It is an area of an otherwise rational, factual existence where I can truly indulge my desire to question “…but, what does it all meeeeeeeaan?” It is my dirty little secret. My philosophical sweet treat. Recently, I was reading the interpretation […]

HOW TO ROCK CHEAP CHIC

Photographer: Addeana Husaini It was not fashion per se that spawned my love of clothing. It was an interest in the art of dressing well.

LOVE IS

Love is… When a family member hands you a cheque and tells you to go chase your dream. It is the friend who always likes the pointless shit you post on Facebook. Every. Single. Time. Love is tangling yourself together under the sheets. Even though you are so hot you can’t sleep. It is the […]

THE ONE

Photographer: Addeana Husaini You know what they say. It is always when you’re not looking that you find the one. And this was the case for me finding my very first leather jacket. One idle weekday I was having a ‘browse’ and there it was. All thick and heavy and made from textured grain New […]

WANNA F**K?

Sunday was hot and balmy. So I decided to take the dog for a walk to enjoy the weather. We rounded the corner of a tree-lined street and I noticed two guys working on a car. As I wandered past, one of them yelled out to me. “Wanna fuck?” Just like that. Nothing more. A […]

BUS STOPS AND DIVINE TIMING

Last week I read about the concept of divine timing. And I thought this was interesting and share-worthy. The idea being, as we head forth on our path, we will meet people or have experiences that are destined for us. They bump us – sometimes through tragedy or heartbreak – onto the path we truly […]

IMAGINE ALL THE PEOPLE.

Photographer: Addeana Husaini Every girl needs to have a black tuxedo jacket in her wardrobe. This alone, with a tiny black singlet, black jeans and heels has saved me so many times when invited to impromptu gatherings. I also can’t go past a pair of white jeans and a t-shirt that cost a bomb to […]
