A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS

Friday, December 16, 2016

Wearing: SASS shorts, Target tee, Addidas runners and H&M denim jacket with DIY wings

I've got a head, a head full of dreams! Still on such a high from Coldplay's concert from last week, and feeling like a completely different person too. Told myself during the concert that I'd come out of it as a more confident person, who didn't give a funk about what others thought, and well, I think it might actually be working for me!
So as you're reading this, I would have just spent my first week exploring the streets of the always beautiful, Japan, taking too many photos and filling up my phone storage. I put this together in advance as I knew I probably wouldn't have enough bother-some-ness to write and upload a blog post, so enjoy!
I went to the concert with my dad and brother, both Coldplay lovers also, and got tickets in the standing area right up close to the stage and the catwalk! And what a night it was! Chris didn't disappoint, with confetti cannons blasting off with every second song, and giant balloons floating everywhere, along with a marriage proposal and a special performance with Emmanuel Kelly. We were squashed in like sardines amongst some amazing people, and three hilarious blokes (from I think it was London) who told us, "we didn't come here to see Coldplay, Coldplay came here to see us." And even though I ended up with half a cup of their beer down my leg, I loved every moment of that night. I guess you could say that I had an "Amazing Day."

CARRY ON TRAVEL ESSENTIALS VIDEO

Saturday, December 10, 2016


'Oh no not another video Ash, where's all the fashion posts you promised?' I hear you say. Well, guess what, this isn't just another lousy attempt of a video of me basically whispering at the camera because I'm too embarrassed to talk to myself when there's other people at home, no no no, this is a work of art, this is *drumroll please* my carry on bag essentials for travelling for like 8+ hours, but hey that's not the catchiest title in the world, so let's just call it, 'Carry On Travel Essentials.' I like it, short, snappy.
SO I'm off to Japan tonight (eeek!) and I'm quite a bit anxious, but also super excited to be jetting off to another country to explore and take too many photos and too many videos (fingers crossed I can remember to daily vlog a tad!)

CURRENT FAVES VIDEO

Tuesday, December 06, 2016


Felt a little bit productive today and decided to film a long awaited YouTube video for my channel that still surprisingly hasn't died yet! I managed to film despite a few inconveniences (a.k.a. my brother and his friends sleeping just outside my door, and the fact that me sitting in my room talking to myself always seems a bit unusual for people to hear hahahah).
Nevertheless, I'm back at it again, filming some videos and shooting some blog posts on my new and improved website (who else is in love with the new deign!) I'm still working on a few finishing touches but I'm so proud of how everything's slowly coming together, making me want to post on here so much more! See you soon!

THIS WEEK IN MUSIC

Saturday, August 27, 2016

So here's a new concept I've come up with that I thought was going to be a good idea, but let's see how it ends up. This is basically one of those posts like, I had a post planned for this week but couldn't get a hand on the photos yet sooooo hopefully, that'll be uploaded next week (fingers crossed) but for now her'es just an excuse for me to make a pretty hip and alternative mixtape and share it with all of you along with some completely made up reasoning, enjoy!

So I went to the NGV teen art party last night (more about that coming soon) and there were some pretty cool music and some pretty cool people (shout out to Jack and Antoinette) so I've stalked Spotify to try and find some of the sik beats to add to this playlist, along with any other songs that pretty much sum up my week.

NEW KID ON THE BLOCK

Sunday, August 21, 2016

Wearing: Cotton On tee (thrifted ^-^ ), Sportsgirl overalls and shoes (not pictured), Factorie long sleeve, NYX suede liquid lipstick (if you were wondering)

Well better late than never am I right? Honestly, I'm not surprised I hadn't planned a blog post for this week, even though I've been at home since Friday I still somehow got so distracted (and so lazy) to not shoot a quick Outfit of the Day post. Anyhow, sorry not sorry, here I am now we're all g!

So I went thrift shopping (or op shopping whatever you like to call it) with my fatherly figure last weekend, and snagged a few bargains, by a few I mean two, one was this striped shirt and the other, well, it'll be making an appearance soon enough! I know what you're probably thinking, "but that's just a Cotton On top what's so special about that?!" but could you really pass up an ok quality top for just $3.99? (Neither could I!)

Sidenote: I'm still working on my 70's vibe with the whole t-shirt over a skivvy get-up, and honestly I kinda love the look. I'm tryna play it cool and less low key 70's dad with the ribbed skivvy, but still, who doesn't love a bit of 70's dad fashion! Enjoy the rest of your week, Ash xox

P.S: noticed an improvement in the spelling of these blog posts? Well that's all thanks to Grammarly, check it out for a lifesaving spell checker in everything you type!

VIEWS OF WHEN

Saturday, August 13, 2016

Wearing: AC/DC tee (bought at a market in Thailand), Target jeans, unknown belt, converse all stars, Factorie sunnies

Nothing's better than a bit of a throwback am I right? AC/DC tee paired with some, and I quote, “hippie go lucky” sunnies, just somehow makes the perfect outfit. Ok I’ll be completely honest, I've been watching too many of Izzy (viewsofnow, if you haven’t heard of her before I don’t know where you’ve been she’s one of my biggest inspirations!) videos and I’ve adopted a bit of her style into my own wardrobe, what she called; her 70’s aesthetic. And I’m loving it!
I also went op shopping (one of my new fave fave fave things to do) on the weekend and picked up a killer of a jacket. Oversized, vintage, brown, suede, perfect! (Keep an eye out for that making an appearance in lots of blog posts!)

Also, it's taken me ages to set it back up (I'm lazy okay, I get it) but my Bloglovin' account is back up and running, make sure to hit me up a follow to be notified when I upload a new post (because who knows when that's going to happen!) head over to here to follow me, or click on that subpage to the left with the word; bloglovin.

Anyway, one more hectic week down of this sort of sunny last month of Winter, only 16 days until Spring! Have a fabulous week, Ash xox

WE'RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE

Saturday, July 30, 2016

Thrifted vintage Levis denim jacket, Cotton on shoes, Sportscraft shirt, Harper & Beau bralette (worn underneath), Lee-Rider jeans

Saying i've had a busy week would be a massive understatement, i've done so so much (well, in my mind it's so so much) this week that a relaxing weekend was exactly the right thing i'd been waiting for. On friday night we packed up enough clean water, food, warm clothes and candles to last us one night spent 'camping' up in Daylesford, well, it wasn't exactly camping, but let's just put it this way, no toilets, no running water, no electricity, no wifi, but acres upon acres of luscious greenery, it was all worth it. Now i'm gonna keep this as short as i can, coz it's time for dinner and gonna be honest i'm really hungry so imma leave it here, have an amazing week and enjoy this last cold month of winter, Ashley xox

Had some fun today filming a small portion of my day; bike riding along the beach, and, um well, more bike riding? OK so I didn't get much done today, but the sun was out and it was a warm 9 degrees so i had to go and do something!

ASH THE POKÉMON TRAINER

Saturday, July 16, 2016

Factorie top, Addidas cap and shoes, Sportsgirl overalls, KJ Jewels watch, Shop Xela choker

It's been a while, bug it's great to be back! So i'm currently sitting here at my desk in the exact same outfit from the above pictures, drinking watermelon sorbet tea, and eating "lasagna" (basically if you haven't seen Ryan's "cooking, but not really" lasagna is just tinned lasagna, or the equivalent-tinned spaghetti-with a layer of rice on top and a whole bunch of melted cheese) and wondering what has happened in the past few days... As if you haven't heard of Pokémon Go! Today we went out Pokémon hunting and came across a cute little blue wall-blue door combo. To be a good Pokémon hunter, one must first look the part, and that's where this outfit came from. The overalls, patterned tee and cap combo just screamed Pokémon trainer to me, and well, it didn't look all that bad!
