Happy Easter! I certainly enjoyed mine; it was a welcome break from hospital placement (we are now 14 weeks into the semester, with holidays over a month away) to catch up with friends and celebrate the death and resurrection of our blessed saviour. I spent the weekend with my old schoolmates, staying at my friend’s forest cabin in the Aussie bushland forest of Wirrabara (approx. 3hrs from Adelaide, near Laura)
Of course, I couldn’t resist taking advantage the beautiful location and company of my creative friends for a photoshoot. This was done in collaboration with E from Faith in Fools as my photographer (the recipient of a rose flowercrown as well as the host of our Kitschella party, if you recall).
This flower crown was commissioned for the 21st birthday of my beloved friend, E, from Faith in Fools. It was a house gathering that wasn’t too big, but lots of fun! The colour themes for the party were gold and berry hues (dark pink, deep reds, plum etc.), which is what she wanted for her flowercrown.
Summer is coming, or if you’re from down under like me, winter is coming (*cue GoT reference… and I don’t even watch that show) But whether it is winter or summer, it is always festival season somewhere in the world. So, here I am bringing you my dream music festivals both in Australia and abroad.
Knowing that we are highly unlikely to make it to Coachella my friends at Faith in Fools, we wanted to create our own DIY version, an excuse to decorate and throw a party to celebrate the summer holidays with our friends. It would involve homemade tents and teepees, fairy lights, lanterns and copious amounts of bunting. It would be kitsch. It would be Coachella. It would be Kitsch +Coachella= Kitschella
Last minute DIY parties are the best. Because I don’t know about you, but I get distracted really easily on my own, leaving behind a disastrously messy path of unfinished projects. Furthermore, the last minuteness forces you to go Iron Chef and do what you can with the key ingredient (or whatever craft stuff you can find) In my case, I brought a gaudy bracelet and a sleek (but sadly plain) clutch. Big thank you to Faith in Fools for hosting!
