Mon traitement à moi-même

After making possibly one of the hardest decisions we females ever have to make (to follow thy head or thy heart) I have decided to treat myself to a few luxuries I've recently otherwise denied myself.

Yesterday I spent the day shopping with mon meilleur ami (my best friend) Mia and the day before that I spent my waking hours crying into my pillow in between bouts of finding much sought after comfort in my teddy, a tub of ice cream and the latest issue of Shop Til You Drop.

With my new found solidarity and bff on arm, we tackled the mall and fought off all conversation regarding the male race on a whole. So prepare yourselves for a very near future outfit post featuring an out-of-this-world Bianca Spender blazer.

But in the mean time today I'm working on my tan to complement my newly acquired wardrobe for my internship in Sydney!

Isn't it a wonder what a spot of retail therapy can do?

I highly recommend this kind of pedigree self-love. Until next time être fabuleux et régalez-vous! (Be fabulous and treat yourself!)

Monster and Midget

Meet Monster and Midget. Two Brisbane girls at the intersection of fashion, art, design and photography who despite the economic climate have defied all odds and created a visual feast free of mediocrity and the constricting boundaries of subordinacy new publications commonly find themselves trapped in.

Thembi Hanify and Ashlea O'Neill have for a limited time only released the pre-issue before gaining enough support and advertising to print and distribute M&M down the east coast of Australia. But before all that, check out the preview here.

M&M is a clean cut publication devoting time and effort to effective white space however with the juxtaposition of clinical whiteness against an honest and earthy type-face, M&M is a delight to flip through for anyone with a soft spot for design. It toys with the cutting edge and modernity while paying homage to the delights of that familiar, classic magazine feel.
