January is slowly drawing to a close but it is in no means done. I had a week[ish] away, up north for a bit and I think I really needed it. It kinda made me feel like a person again. I got to spend time with my best friends which was really great.. yeah! January is like BFF month. First Nicoleta, then Oriane and Gloria, then Selma today and tomorrow Elise is coming from Melbourne stay until Monday. Aren't I a lucky girl.
I wasn't neglectful though - I did a photoshoot on Friday and will be doing at least one with Elise when she comes up as a fellow photographer.

Marit Fujiwara is obviously very talented and I hope to hear more about her. I couldn't find that much info so I will have to take tabs and wait to see what she does next.
My jewellery is mainly a mixture of finds from op shops and gifts. I don't have much compared to some but everything I own I am very sentimental about - well I'm just sentimental in general. I got soap flowers from the shops, they don't smell that great but they are so pretty to watch melt in the bath and then they go all gooey. I got a Frankie journal as I'm not buying the magazine this year and wanted something to remind me of one of parts Australia I really admire - the art.
When I did the photoshoot with Nico I had a quote of Helen Keller in mind - "If you can enjoy the sun and the flowers and music where there is nothing except darkness and silence you have proved the mystic sense". It is one of my favourite quotes. The mystic sense is very important and I think we should all hold onto it.
The drawing by perfertnoseclub is obviously because of the floods in Brisbane - where the artist resides. I prefer it much more than the constant updates about how much exactly its going to cost to fix some stupid football ground. I think peoples homes and families are a tad more important.
The photo by marinethursday describes how I'm feeling at the moment, which perfectly fits with the lyrics of Beetles by Warpaint, which I was been listening to a lot in the past twenty four hours.
I am not prepared, I just gotta gotta get there,
where am I, why can't I just get it together?
Fuck it, where's my shit?
Oh my God I'm mad at it
Oh my God I'm mad at it
Death to feelings and plans - or not.
