It’s been stupidly long since I have updated my blog. Like actually insanely long. Time to dive back in the deep end and get my life back on track!
I just spent the afternoon catching up on a few entries and its now time for a little life update, and of course some music thats been getting me through lately.
I partly stopped writing after taking a job up in Berlin with the champs at outfittery.de. I joined their incredible graphics team as a designer and picked up so many new skills! I also got to shoot for them quite often and had a great time learning about mens fashion, Berlin startups and German words! The office was huge, several floors, and people were welcome to bring their dogs to work… AKA heaven to me! I made some great friends and connections there which made it hard to say goodbye.
While I was working there I also managed to fit in a few more shoots, some of which I have written about below, and a few more that are on their way… including my favourite shoot of the whole year! I made a decision to relocate back to Australia at christmas time to be close to a family member who is quite unwell. After becoming sure about that plan I spent my final weeks enjoying Europe and being with my ridiculously amazing Berlin friends. I spent a half a week in Budapest with my French doppelganger, and fluttered around Berlin like a glorious schmetterling catching up with my nearest and dearest. I have to say that the people I met in Berlin were some of the most incredible souls I’ve ever encountered, and are easily the reason I was (and still am) so in love with that city. Berlin babes, THANK YOU. I miss you like cray.
I’m now back in #straya, and starting to get my feet back on the ground after a beautiful xmas with the fam and the most wild new years you can imagine. I still get reverse-homesick for Berlin every day, but I think I am settled enough now to start crafting life back here again. So in the spirit of working mega-hard and beaming out a vibrantly, positive, GOLDEN attitude to the year ahead - here is a mega-mix of magical songs to soothe your ears.
