how to age backwards...

Today is the start of my birthday weekend. This is what I expect to look like within the first two hours.
My boss has her birthday on Monday so we are celebrating together. We also made a pack that we will now only age backwards. This year I turn 24. I can't wait to be sixteen again.

Tuula



I heart Tuuala. Mint green mini mixed with a woollen white jumper. She looks like a multi coloured macaroon. Check her out. x

Bad Girls, Bad Girls. Whatcha gonna do?

 I am woman. Watch me drive. 
- Manal al-Sharif






















BRITISH BORN with Sri Lankan Tamil decent, Maya also known as M.I.A (missing in action) is a singer/songwriter who's tunes are like world music mixed with hip-hop. It isn't until you see her videos and listen to her lyrics that you begin to realise it reflects heavy political movements. She isn't an artist who will ask you to align yourself with a particular political position like Yoko and Lennon but her music reminds you to reflect on all of the injustice in the world. Her Born Free music video (2010) was banned off Youtube due to the images of red haired adults and children being hunted down and shot at point blank by American militants.

Her newest video, "bad girls" incorporates the cultural rebellion of females in Saudi Arabia. even with such footage and ideas incorporated into her catchy music, there seems to be an underlining witty humour at work that helps lighten the message. Her latest clip presents a group of middle eastern females covered from head to toe, who are suppressed from driving due to religious laws but live it up in the dessert- westernised boy racer style. "Live fast, Die Young, Bad girls do it well" sings MIA empowering these woman to stand up for their rights and educating individuals like myself to spread awareness of the injustice. Unlike most musical artist these days, M.I.A hasn't allowed money to be the driving factor for her music videos and songs. I think if she wanted to, she could sell herself dancing in a bikini quite well, instead her uplifting tunes ironically illustrate the prejudices at work in the world.

the kingdom of the missing sock...

Last week I breathed a sigh of relief when I came across the Kingdom of the missing sock

At the 2010 Beaufort St. Festival, the Highgate Drycleaner's coin laundry room extinguished any belief of my missing socks being devoured by the monster under my bed.

I have now strong faith that they decide to run free.. away from the smell of my tootsies and into the unknown kingdom (until now) of the missing sock.

Below is proof of this sacred land (and the photos from the exhibition I attended).

my polly pocket

aka the pussy wagon.


She set me back 900.
Have never driven one until now. Decided I need a ride to get around Perth. Got her off Gumtree  (trade and exchange website) and picked her up from her old owner at 8am in the morning. Had to drive her home for the first time through peak hour traffic, and since I don't know Perth that well, I had to write directions on my arm so I knew where to go on the 45 minute mission home. 


What an adventure.


She got home safe and so did I.
