Lana Del Rey for VOGUE Australia

Lana Del Rey for Vogue Australia
Photographer: Nicole Bentley
Fashion Editor: Christine Centenera
Hair: Anna Cofone
Make-up: Pamela Cochrane
Manicure: Mandi Levanah

Sorry, for the lack of posting for a while, time just went by.

How stunning is this Lana Del Rey shoot for Vogue? Simply beautiful- I love the clothes, makeup, hair, room, props, everything! It just screams to me everything I love. I must say, I wasn't always a fan of Lana Del Rey, I wasn't taken by her music, but I was inspired to draw this cover of Vogue, and thought it was only fitting to listen to this songstress at the same time, and was pleasantly surprised by the variety of songs on her album until a faulty fire alarm caused me to evacuate the building at midnight.

None of the Lana Del Rey imagery would be new to Aussies, but hopefully any international folk will have never seen it before.

Flattery's Bedroom

Breanne from Flattery just did a lovely post about her recent room decorating- and I love it. It's quirky and sweet. I also love it because it's her actual room and therefore has stuff in it- the worst thing about looking at interior design magazines and site is that you can never actually achieve the look because you have too much stuff (or maybe that's just me) or because you have sentimental things that must be on display however, they do not go with the theme of the room.
Therefore, I find this kind of mismatched, quirky, vintage decoration perfect, because you can feature all of your collectables and it still looks good.
I dream of the day where I can completely decorate a room myself, and paint. I've always had to put up with the baby blue walls my parents chose before I was born, and frankly, I'm more of a pink and purple person. And well, at college, it's whatever's cheapest, at least I have blue not faded orange curtains this year!
You can check out the post here!
Hope you had a lovely day, mine was great before I put a tissue in the wash!

Pony Anarchy Magazine

My favourite online magazine read Pony Anarchy has finally released their seventh issue. Filled with beautiful photography and illustration this issue is amazing, the magazine get bigger and better with every issue. I do hope that one day they release it in print (I am more partial to be able to feel -and smell- books and magazines). But for now I will continue to read the online goodness here!

I should also mention that the editor is the very talented Kristie Webster, who is about my age. When seeing people like her and athletes in their late teens and early twenties win gold medals at the Olympics really make me feel like I have achieved nothing in my nineteen years! I do hope I continue onto something great like these amazing people! 

I guess that since this is a Monday, I should post something musically- last Friday I purchased Two Door Cinema Club's latest album Beacon and the Vaccines' Come of Age. Both are amazing and definitely didn't have that whole second album disaster thing. I highly recommend you go out and buy them!
