March Playlist.

    This is most definitely the weirdest month, music wise. There is a real mix of music from the 90s and early 2000s to more recent music influenced by concerts i've seen this month. All of this has culminated into the March Playlist. I thought i'd try something a bit different and include my March Spotify Playlist (I love Spotify!!! It makes traffic a lot more bearable knowing that I can rock out to Avril Lavigne!)

Royal Exhibition Building.

     I have mixed feelings about the Royal Exhibiton Building in Melbourne. On one hand it's a beautiful building but on the other hand, it's the building I have my exams in so I can't help but feel a bit anxious every time I step through those big doors. Not going to lie, the only time I've been to the REB for non exam purposes was for the Slavic Pancake Festival. It genuinely felt weird being in there without stressing out about the relationship between dopamine and schizophrenia. Being there without worrying about hand cramps and lost pens allowed me to focus on the beautiful architecture of the building. Here are a few photos I took from last month when I was there for the festival.

White Night.

   Yes, White Night was a few weeks ago but between summer subject assignments, o-week, first week back at Uni and tripping on my foot and spraining it, this is the first time i've had time to consolidate my pictures!
White night was AWESOME! My brother's improv tap dance group Jamz( I've done a post on them here) were performing so it gave me an excuse to brave the crowds and venture into the city on a night where there is no logical reason for 500,000 people to be at one place over the span of twelve hours. Okay, ramble over, here are the pictures!
     I didn't see much but it was definitely a fun experience(minus the crowds). I'd definitely go again, but make a plan of the events I want to see!

February Playlist

Ahh, apologies for being absent for so long. Getting back into the swing of things, here's another playlist for the month of February.

The entire Sam Smith Album, although Lay me down is probably my favourite song.
Benny and the Jets: Elton John
Piece of my Heart: Cee Lo Green

Also special mention to a band I saw at White Night in Melbourne last weekend- The Black Harrys!

Young Vincent.

   Last Friday, I headed down to Mornington with my friends for the Young Vincent single launch. Young Vincent is an amazing band and the lead singer has a BEAUTIFUL voice. They played a couple of their songs and ended the night with a hilarious cover of 'Say my name'.
  The launch was held at Commonfolk Cafe, which is situated on a street filled with car repair shops, and from the outside you're a little skeptical. Once you get in, it's just so cute, filled with fairy lights, cute water cups and beautiful cakes. Can't wait to go there one day when it's not all dolled up for a performance.
  Go like Young Vincent on Facebook, check out their Youtube channel, go support a great band with amazing talent.

Beach-hopping.

       Bored on a warm Thursday afternoon? Go beach-hopping! 
       The other day, I visited my friend who was having a beach week in Rosebud. The plan was to meet the rest of her family at a few beaches, but we ended up on a wild goose chase trying to find them, only to find out when we got back to her place that they had gone to the shops instead! On the bright side, we had fun driving along the coast and checking out a few beaches. 
       Have you had any misadventures that have turned out really fun?

Last Weekend.

         Last weekend was a long weekend because Monday was Australia Day. The week before, I was doing a summer intensive course at University, so I was really looking to relax during the weekend before I had to start working on my assignments for the class. Last weekend was actually really nice. I spent Saturday at Mornington- my obsession with that beautiful town is growing, I fall more in love with it every time I visit. Sunday was spent wandering the Melbourne CBD and then watching Wild. It was such a nice movie, definitely recommend it if you are feeling uninspired! Have any of you read the book, hoping to read it in Febuary. Instead of spending Australia Day listening to the Triple J Top 100 at a barbecue, my friends and I went for a Survival Day celebration in Belgrave. Here's a link if you want to know more about Survival Day.There was music, good food and lots of henna. Here are a few pictures from last weekend.
