backstory!~ VIETNAM//KL//BALI SUMMER 2012

never posted photos of my trip back in the summer
so here ya go!
vietnam was amazing and I miss it so so so much
the people especially <3
the weather and tanning in bali
and the city skyline in Kuala Lumpur !
so much has changed since then
and I kinda wish i could just go back into that little bubble i lived in on that trip where i ignored my entire life in Australia
and appreciated the bigger picture of life more

dreaming of a place you'd rather be

mum's a darl' and letting me chose the next location for a family getaway :)
currently trying to decide between the Whitsundays or the snow
although there is also the possibility of Tokyo or other tropical Asian paradises later in the year <3
seeing as its freaking freezing right now I'm heading towards the Whitsunday...
looking into house swapping with a family that live on the incredible unspoiled paradise
the island has like 10 inhabitants and in right in the great barrier reef
its looks so tranquil and peaceful and the most amazing mid-year escape from the stress and frustrations of year 12 !!!
please somewhere take me there now, so i can escape this dreadful winter cold...

The rain wets the leopard's spots but does not wash them off.

this girl is so beautiful and brave ~
it makes me sad to think of what she has to go through every day :'(
skin conditions are hard and she deals with it so well, such an inspiration <3
people should check out her blog
my heart goes out to psoriasis sufferers around the world; today and everyday; the good days and the bad

Interesting to see how you'd react! You can sort of do not know completely before you are in the situation itself. I've come a long process where I have to admit that I'm like, I hardly think that I am sick anymore. The pictures in the previous post is from the beginning of the outbreak, now I'm almost psoriasisfree - the only thing that remains is brown, large "freckles" in which psoriasis once frolicked. As a true leopard, with red wounds and tears    ...   I was desperately thinking " Why me? ". I had yelled at my own reflection, cried tears of frustration over a " young, destroyed the outside "and thought that no man in the world would ever touch me again. No dresses would look good anymore, no summer along the long sandy beaches, no lights and scantily clad future at all. I felt disgusted with my body, which would no longer felt like mine. I felt that I was nasty, and felt like a defeat that handled it so badly. "

so fashion week is a very nostaligic time for me, looking back on how much fun i had last year
and how great it is to have a break mid semsester to just clear the head and relieve a bit of the stress
not that fashion week isnt stressfull that is, hahah its probably the most stressfull week of the year for a lot of people!
and i dreadfully miss those 4am wakeups and 15 hour long days that i got to experience last year
and i kick myself for not going again this year !!!
note to self: fashion>year12 ~ everytime.
but following every single live update on twitter is about as close to the action i will get this year...
and i will be doing some collection posts sooon! i promise :)
probably zimmerman, alice mccall, and talulah 
for now though im just going to dream back (via the help of these photos) to those sunnny sydney days last year that were desperately needed as a break from these chilling winter adelaide ones!
