Hi lovely peeps! how have you been?
It has been what seems like forever, colds and flu's, work etc etc has just kept us on our tippy toes (by us i mean me!) but maaan do I have adventures to share with you.

I have the pleasure of working with amazing brands and stores, and this time I had the joy of doing a shoot and styling for Studio Bandit, which is an uber cool store packed with the best of the best in children's fashion: I dig denim, Finger in the nose, Loud Apparel, Zef, Just Bo to mention a few. I cannot tell you how much in love I am with the kids outfits in this shoot! The Zef blouse miss W is wearing is so soft and has become our favourite for this season! It loos like denim but if the softest thin cotton. These black madison skinny jeans from i dig denim are so soft and super stretchy, they sit so perfectly on her little legs, just adore this look! Mr C's FITN bomber is just beyond. I love the softness and coolness this jacket brings to the table. Paired with the freshest denims and that tee, he looks just as cool as he feel. (Yeah!)

I just had to take this shoot to a next level of cool so what better way than to embrace and join 3 of my biggest passions: My family, fashion and graffiti.
I LOVE graffiti and it was this love that back in the day lead me to my art studies. I would read molotov cocktail and Fat Cap magazine and google graffiti and trains every chance I had: I had folders full of prints for inspiration. I spent every single free hour drawing letters and working on my shapes and colours. It was in this time I began skateboarding too. I was simply mesmerised by street and hip hop culture. The colours and the coolness just spoke to me and inspired me to grow creatively. This love began when I was 11 and has just kept on growing ever since. I don't do much art on my own at all anymore, it seems to have been put a bit in the past as I spend my days playing and skating, creating with glitter glue and beads, teaching and learning, running and climbing and generally, just being a momma, but my heart will forever adore the streets, the walls and the arts.

On two different occasions around my munster kids shoot in Newtown (See here) I was suggested to check out the dunlop/slazenger warehouse in Alexandria / Sydney. Little did we know that this warehouse had been sold and is now under construction, and any entrance is highly illegal :: sad as this spot has been used in countless music videos and movie scenes and is famous for its amazing walls, light, mood and worn down coolness: The light in there is just beyond. I HAD to get in.
Random bits of good luck, lead to us being allowed in to shoot: and we had a fantastic adventure for about an hour before we were chased out by a very very pissed off dude (who was the owner and the person who gave us permission was not at liberty to do so. How could we have known? Aaaaanyways) We left with smiles on our faces and some amazing pictures. Probably the last shoot to be done in this amazing spot. Thank goodness we got in!

I hope you will enjoy this little illegal adventure /  for the awesome STUDIO BANDIT
