A Postcard from Portarlington

28 Feb 2016

@findingfemme wears Laura Ashley postcards dress at the Portarlington beach.

For someone who is usually only interested in the outdoors in a civilised manner, it’s impressive how much the beach has played a part in my growing up. My grandparents used to have a beach house in St Leonards and we would spend a lot of time there when I was a child. My grandmother wanted rid of though, so my Pa sold it. She then complained to him that he sold it for the rest of her life. Classic Nan. 

Ballarat Beat 2016

14 Feb 2016



Today I had the pleasure of working with an annual local event: the Ballarat Beat Rockabilly Festival. It's something I love doing every year and it gives me an opportunity to get dressed up in a style that is unusual for me. I love the 'journalism' feel of running around meeting people, taking their photo and trying to capture the vibe of the event. This time, I'm even going to show you what I wore.

A Cotton Dress by the Summer Seaside

When I was much younger and I was hanging out with some mates before a karate class, we were almost arrested for stealing my own car and breaking into a school to perform a burglary. We had a few hours to kill and we were really into parkour and any activities that stretched your physical skills. On this particular day, it was school holidays so we went past a nearby primary school to mess around on the playground.

Black and White High Waisted Bikini

@findingfemme wears striped Bikiniboo high waisted bikini at the beach.

I have found a new love for swimwear thanks to the stumbling across the unique and original designs of Bikiniboo. I’ve always hated swimwear, the beach and shopping for bathers. Some of my most self-hating moments have involved swimwear and fitting rooms. Clothes form such a big part of my love of life, so when I wear something that isn’t meant for me it can make me feel really low. Bikiniboo’s swimwear has made me feel, for the first time since I owned a crocodile onesie at age 3, that I love swimwear.
