I’ll make sure I get back on track with blogging now that uni’s about to begin and I can sense there’ll be loads more exciting projects this year in and out of uni. Cheers to the final year of my bachelor’s degree! Can’t believe it’s the last year and I don’t think my mind will ever register that until I’m in Etihad stadium with my graduation attire.

October update

It’s officially October and that means there’s 3 weeks of uni left…..wow. Actually, I’m aware 3 weeks is still a pretty long time and I’m gonna need all of that time to make sure this semester ends on a good note. So far the second half of the semester’s going relatively well, we’ve been given the task to produce a 5 second animation for the upcoming RMIT Communication Design event, which my exhibition design elective is currently working on and speaking of exhibition design, I’m part of the curatorial team! The role is quite daunting since I underestimated how much planning there is to be done but I’m liking the experience as we speak.

Last week I was able to stay on top of my work so I finally had time to catch up with some good friends. Decided to go to the Melbourne Show, mind you the last time I went was…I don’t know. Too long ago. We bumped into the Masterchef kitchen by the way. Oh hello there….

I don’t usually go out and shop but when I do, it’s either when the sales happen, when I have to buy gifts or when I’m overseas. Nothing beats online shopping though, good values and good variety which brings me to this photo of my  most recent purchase, the cropped trench coat. Has a distinct design and was perfect to wear at the Melb Show given that we had to battle heavy winds all day eugh!

It’s a laid-back Tuesday

I don’t often get the chance to go and casually hang out at cafes but when I do, it’s at Giraffe Cafe. Hidden in the narrowness of Little Lonsdale (and next to an ugly, noisy construction site) Giraffe Cafe was the perfect place to stop by and catch up with a friend who I haven’t seen in a very long time. I love the place! It’s cosy and cute, very cute! Walls embellished with polaroids, antiques and photo frames and rooms filled with random bits and pieces here and there that make you wonder why they’re there. Yeah, it’s all lovely. One of the reasons, no wait, the only reason why I make occasional trips back to this cafe is because of their simple yet delicious menu with mouthwatering desserts, vegetarian friendly dishes and best of all, their chai latte. THEIR CHAI LATTE. A glass full of goodness that’s perfect for this 3 degree weather…it’s the best. I can’t resist.

A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I live and breathe all things art, design, culture and fashion. You'll find me documenting my life in the creative field, endless travels with friends and family and a bit of food.
