Even the Hurricane couldn’t stop two of New York’s finest trick or treaters. Tara and Becky coaxed me out to Manhattan for some midnight mayhem. To Check out the dozen or so photos

“I’m glad you’re alive. Who else’s instagram photos would make me feel an insane wave of jealousy/ ‘wanderlust’ (Hipsters/ girls on tumblr have massacred that word, I shuddered as I typed it.)” – @girlviolence. A friend from home recently posted on my facebook
wall (or timeline but that reads stupid) during the height of hurricane Sandy as it blew through New York. Which brings me to the next instalment of updates and adventures..
It’s been months since my last post – apologies – I’ve had a brief holiday back home in Brisbane and have now returned to New York. I’ve even moved into a neat little apartment on South 3rd Street in Williamsburg right off Bedford Ave! And yes, I’m fully aware, that it’s hipster central but I swear, it’s much less lame in the South of Williamsburg!
More importantly, tonight marks the anniversary of 9/11 where twin towers of light stand in memorial.

Mabh (pron: May-ve) and I met after
I crashed vegetarian dinner party a chance encounter on halloween 2010, it was such an awesome experience that I even wrote about it here. Since then we’ve shared amazing moments of drunken complex conversation and adventures often beginning or ending in coffee, wine or food. As part of winning Play Melbourne, I was lucky enough to reminisce and experience it all again when I caught up with Mabh. It had nearly been an entire year since we’d seen each other, and of all that was new it was really heartwarming to see little bits of how we’ve grown up in some ways, and haven’t changed at all in others. One thing that will always remain the same is that when Mabh asks, ‘how are you?’ she means it, and intensely cares. Mabh If you’re reading this, I love you loads, you’ll always be a dear friend regardless of all the moving and distance! Continue Reading…
Lanah and I first met at the Vagabond cafe (which I’ve written about here) in West Village, NYC early in 2012. We bonded over the chance meeting of two Brisbane locals, of the same age, meeting halfway around the world at a quaint little cafe in New York. I recently had a chance to catch up with Lanah in early July 2012, after realising we had both returned home. Lanah was nursing a slight fracture in her ankle at the time, and taking a temporary hiatus from professional dancing to recover back home. After grabbing an awesome lunch, we spent the rest of the day shooting and exploring the coast. I had an absolute blast being at the beach, and soaking the day in.Thanks Lanah, future cook-ups at the mansion are definitely on the horizon! Continue Reading…
