Australia's Next Top Model | Week Eight.

This week's photoshoot has been my absolute favourite concept on this season, although I found the results rather disappointing considering 
- the photographer seemed young and fresh and really great to work with, the location being Bondi was breathtaking and the styling was spot on.

Through watching the shoot, I honestly thought that way better photo's could have been chosen of nearly every girl. 
Melissa seemed to have great poses, although nothing came of that - Abbie's shot didn't turn out that great, it looked like an inbetween 
shot - Jade and Dajana's were a little boring, I think that they could have both benefitted from at full body shot 
and Duckie's, well, that was a little lacklustre.

I agree with the judges that Shanali had "photo of the week". 
She filled the brief of just being casual and not too posey, like she was actually at Bondi for a surf.
And I'm a little biased because I've been lusting over that wetsuit she's wearing for the longest time. Ashley's too! 
I try to come up with so many excuses as to why I NEED one whenever I see it. Maybe one day, right?

I was happy to see Ashley go this week. She seemed to start a lot of the drama that was going on and just didn't seem 
as confident in herself as a person or get on with the girls that well.

What were your thoughts on this shoot? A major let down or major love?

Wish List | Isabel Marant Sandals.

I'm a sucker for these Isabel Marant 'Carol' sandals.
It seems that every blogger in the world has a pair, which makes me extremely envious.
The more I see them, the more I want them!

I would pick the black ones, as they are classic and versatile.

Tax cheque purchase? Although... my birthday's coming up, AHEM!

Australia's Next Top Model | Week Six.

For this weeks shoot, the girls travelled to the Australian desert, where they 
were to transform into "outlaws on the run".

'Photo of the week' went to Jade and Madeline.

My favourite shot was Ashley and Melissa's. It's a very strong shot and suited the brief. 
Even though Melissa struggled to look "tough", she looks 
completely different to what she has looked in all of the other softer more delicate photoshoots.

I cannot tell you how sad I am that Taylah has now been disqualified from the competition.
She was one of the strongest girls who was set to go along way and my favourite of all of the girls there.
My front runner is now Melissa. Go girl!
PS. Can Shannon leave already?! I find to be rather annoying. Anyone else in the same boat?

Waves Of The Soul.

Edita Vilkeviciute for Vogue Paris June/July 2013.

With the spring season slowly creeping up, I can't help but be constantly drawn to and inspired by 
editorials filled with sunkissed skin, swimwear and beautiful coastal locations.
This shoot by Giles Bensimon of one of my all-time favourite models, Edita, encapsulates exactly that.
