    Caboolture Show!

    In June we headed out to visit the Caboolture Show. This is the first year we’ve lived in the area and I thought it would make a fun day out. I’m always a fan of going to any show. I’ve been to the Royal Easter Show more times than I can remember to count, as well as the Melbourne Show. Compared to those, the Caboolture is a smaller town fare, but still loads of fun! I decided to go for a cute look! I got lots of compliments on the outfit and the hair, which was a wig. My hair was in a state but luckily i’ve had it done…

    Event – Charlie & the Chocolate Factory

    August 15th, 2019 Yep, I’m still catching up on old shenanigans. This time it’s all about Charlie & the Chocolate Factory – The New Musical. At the last minute, my BFF Mallory invited me as her plus one to the opening night (read her review here). I quickly threw together a quirky Wonka-esque outfit and ran out the door. Apparently, I’m a bad nut 🙁 I really enjoyed the show, I liked how they modernised all the ‘winners’ characters. It was nice seeing a more diverse cast. It’s definitely something the kids would love as I feel that’s who it’s aimed at, but it was also quite long. It made…

    NYX x Miss Fame Masterclass

    March 9th, 2019 Let me tell you something. Grief brain is real. So many months are fuzzy. I have a pretty bad memory to begin with, but add in grief and I’ve lost whole chunks of time. My memory of this event isn’t the best, so this will be more graphics than text. I adddore Miss Fame. Weirdly enough, I have never seen an episode of Drag Race. I’d always meant to watch it but it was never available anywhere I could watch. Trying to think back, I don’t exactly remember where I first found out about them, but I did and I was enamoured. NYX announced that they were…

    Myself, my grief, Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer & the Bushfire Event.

    Amanda Palmer knows a thing or two about grief. She’s not one to shy away from it, she lets it if flow from her in any creative way possible. It’s something that I appreciated but had not really connected with until these past 13 months. I love Amanda. I wrote a post about my love of her 9 years ago on this here blog. I’ve seen her numerous times since, including the absolutly heavenly experience of seeing The Dresden Dolls live. It’s up there as one of my all time favourite gigs. Amanda and Brian just make music magic together. I couldn’t afford to go to her recent tour, she…

    Royal Melbourne Show 2019!

    I am so behind with posts, I have a few that I need to write up, but life has been, well, to put it bluntly,  a shit show. So here we go! Last month I tagged along with my housemates to the Royal Melbourne Show. Growing up in Sydney, I am used to the Royal Easter Show but since moving to Melbourne 5 years ago, this is the 3rd time i’ve visited. Honestly, the shows are all very similar in a way. This year the Melboure Show had been updated, with some new pavillions and changing of venues within the show ground. I liked the super large pavillion holding the…
