New Year, New Missy...2017 looks like its blessing us in all kinds of ways.
I grew up on Missy. My first concert was Missy. Thank god theres new music Missy.
Today she dropped some fire featuring rapper Lamb in I'm Better. What makes me excited for her new music is not only is she lyrical genius, you can tell her creativity is on another level whenever she drops a music video. I think everyone can agree that her visual take on videos is like no other. Lets hope to see more of this in the year.
I loved all her looks from the feathered leather jacket to the studded statement all white ensemble.
My favourite was the military jacket with the text on the back. Heres some visuals from the song. You're welcome !
Peep the video below.
After doing all my budgets and calculations i realised I spent nearly nothing on myself over the last year as most of it went to saving and working on getting a full time job. Thought it was time to spoil myself. Jan is def going to be the month of splurging.
First up this amazing black mesh long sleeve Puma goodness exclusively on ASOS. If you're a sportswear sucker like me, you'll love all the unique ASOS x PUMA pieces. You won't find these pieces at any Puma stores.

Its well mid way into the year and it felt weird not to log in and blog about the past year and what I wished this year to be.
2016 had the blog on a little hiatus as I stepped into the 'real world' and got my self a 'real job'. I am bit of a workaholic and carry on a few projects on at the same time so when it came to let something go as I started full time work, it was the blog aspect of Everyday Like This (was still on insta of course).
Let me tell you as a creative, working 8 hour days and routines is defiantly not my thing. I am so used to sleepless nights, 3am brainstorms, planning out the next show/shoot/post and the chaos that came with balancing everything with my day jobs.
I think what killed me the most was that I would be so tired from work that I wouldn't even have energy to do anything extra/ creative which I saw over the months affected my overall happiness. Needless to say I am back. Its 1:37am and I have work at 8am haha. Lets hope I make it !
I know in 2016 I set out to explore and talk about diversity more. Its funny I think all the posts I did on racism and diversity over the year actually gave me the strength to call out an incident over the N word used in a derogatory way last week. I surprised myself. I am usually the quiet type who keeps to themselves and I hate confrontation. For me this was huge. I was really proud to see how much self growth had happened and when I reflected back I knew having an outlet on the blog defiantly helped me get to where I am at. By speaking out I saw positive change and if I had never said anything I don't know would of happened.
2017 started with a Bang !!! my Swinburne TVC being on Australian TV and it was all thanks to this little baby right here. Who would of thought 7 years ago starting this blog that my mug would be showcased between Nadal and Monfils match at the Australian Open on Channel 7. Is this real life? I have no idea how we got here but I am forever grateful.
This is the first year I haven't set any goals. I am trying not to over work myself but I am sure I'll add some in here soon.
Wish list for the November drop of Puma's latest collaboration with badgal RiRi.
Cannot wait for this one !!!
I was lucky enough to help style the pop up runways for Australia's first Puma flagship store earlier this year. So glad we have an in-store option where we can try on the items before we buy them !
Dear White Australians who are ignorant about this issue....when will this stop?
We all love a good dress up party. Clothing and fashion help dictate who you're trying to be and what image you're trying to perceive. Although most of my fashion posts are about how fun fashion is, as an Australian I think its very important to address this issue.
We continuously see people dressing in blackface and mocking indigenous people and it seems like its never going to stop. These few pictures have been all over my newsfeed today.
The sports star AFL one is questionable. If he had no racist intentions and genuinely wanted to dress like the player I could somewhat see where he was coming from. In saying that I do know how messed up blackface is and the history behind it so I could see why people found it offensive.
Meanwhile the other two pictures posted below are clearly mocking and stereotyping black people and are no way acceptable at all. Like yes we all love a good joke but at what cost? These people are still suffering after the British f*cked them over and took their land all those years ago. They're still having to deal with white people like this making fun of them. I always find myself cringing at the comments section of Facebook posts about these issues.
Education is everything.We need to change our history books. We need to learn in school that no Australia was founded by captain cook. That it was invaded by him and the rape, genocide and children kidnapping that followed. How is it to make fun of people who went through such terrible events?
I've only heard a few tracks from Solange's new album but i cannot wait to get through the whole thing. I loved everything she wore in the two videos she released that were directed by her husband. talk about ultimate relationship goals
