As my regular readers would know i’ve been M.I.A of late. Having moved back to Sydney Australia from New York it’s taken me five weeks to get back into the swing of things. Just to give you a quick update i’m working on samples for my accessories and clothing range as well as managing a restaurant and most recently appointed the N.S.W rep for Audio Threads. As you can see i have my hands full but the time is now and i’ll sleep when i’m dead!!
Since i’ve been back in Sydney it’s hard for me not to make comparisons with New York fashion and i have to say we are definately on top of the game. Sydney has come along way over the past ten years in fashion related fields and you only have to look on the streets to see that we definately hold our own. In the next few weeks i’ll be hitting the streets with my camera capturing the style and essence of Sydney fashion….so keep an eye out!!

For me life has been unpredictable to say the least…… this past year has tested my strength and courage. I discovered many truths about myself as a person some good and some not so but i’m working on it. Self discovery is not always a smooth journey but i have learnt that i’m a survivor and to hold tight to your dreams. No matter what people say being a dreamer keeps you alive and being ‘real’ makes them happen. It’s never to late to live the life you desire….it’s only too late when you’ve given up on yourself. Surround yourself with like minded people who keep you lifted, negative people are toxic and will only bring you down. I always say to friends and family be the best you can be and believe in yourself, your own brilliance. Having recently turned 31 i am now more excited than ever for the next chapter in my life….. whatever may come my way i will always be a chameleon.

So what do two single girls do on Valentine’s Day….go see a chick flick!! The movie ‘He’s just not that into you’ did not disappoint and left me analysing all my past relationships and dating patterns. My dating experiences would have many of you in fits of laughter…..but i definitely learnt alot about men and the way they think. Knowing what i know still doesn’t stop me from making bad choices or lusting after the ‘wrong’ guy but that’s life a myriad of adventures. Many of us can relate to GG optimistic and somewhat naive when it comes to the opposite sex. But she represents the core essence of the average person looking to find happiness and we see a little or alot of ourselves in her. One thing i realised was that no matter the circumstance we always know deep down ‘whats up’!! The reality is most times we delude ourselves and forget to listen to what our head is telling us….he’s just not that into you. If you think about it if he’s not calling you he really doesn’t want to talk to you, he’s really not ‘busy’….he’s just too busy for you. Dating and the pursuit of love is never easy but remember we all find our way eventually. I once asked my guru why there is pain and his response was too suffer the heart to love more freely. As human beings we are all fallible and what makes us human is that we feel….
My friend snapped these four men a few days ago in downtown nyc…..my first thought Kid ‘n’ Play are back!!! Then reality set in and i was thinking oh my goodness what were they thinking….only in New York. Regardless whether i think these men are stuck in a time warp or redefining fashion on their own terms, i love their attitude and i embrace their unique style.
All around the world people are feeling the effects of the downturn in the economy and jobs are lost every hour. To be brutally honest i have never before taken notice of the state of the economy in my country Australia, let alone the rest of the world. But this time I can’t help but see the effects and hear it on the news as well as on the streets. People are concerned and struggling to survive day to day with just lint in their pockets and can only hope for a brighter future.
In New York city you can feel and see the concern people have for their future and it seems like a cloud is hanging over everyone’s heads. I’m especially worried for the homeless people this winter as it’s one of the coldest in a long time, with no money, food and shelter how will they survive if at all? Although i have little myself i try to give one person some change everyday or do a good deed, nothing is ever too little or too much if you give with an open heart.
You may not be able to change the world but you can make a difference with small steps. So i ask you to pass on some kindness next time you see a person in need, it could even be giving up your seat on the bus. Do something everyday and i guarantee not only will you warm someones heart but you will serve your soul. Pay it forward everyone let’s try to help one another through these tough times and when we get through it the sun will shine again for ALL.

One thing that is constant in life is….change and people always ask me why i consider myself a chameleon? Well the honest answer is that as we shed our skin layer by layer our colors change and i as a person love my colors. To me being a chameleon is about self discovery and embracing the many souls,hearts and colors we all have.
