birthday pt.2 feat. Daniel Merriweather

Hello Lovely Ones!

How are you? Just wanted to update you on a gig I went to last Friday night at the Wollongong Uni Bar. I was VERY EXCITED to find out that Daniel Merriweather would be playing locally(ish) on my birthday weekend. My local WINNING crew came to enjoy the show. Now I know I say this about everyone I see but maybe it is just because the people I choose to see are really that jeffing good! Well he was no exception and NOTHING beats an intimate show where you can see the person performing and they can see (and hear) you = instant connection to the artist and their music *sigh*. He is one of my most favourite voices and that is saying something because I spend most of my time listening to the old schoolers because I'm not too fussed with a lot of the music that is out there these days (I am happy to be educated....just sick of hearing all that repetitive weak shit from people who are driven to make hits rather than music).

Enjoying his whiskey and freely sharing it with others in the audience :) See now that's a nice guy right?

Look at my beautiful jacket my friend Emma Magenta got me for my birthday. $35 from Mickey and Mallory

Dress: Supre $10 / Denim Jacket : Thrifted $35 / Boots: Target $35 Chain: Thrifted $2

Look at the detail! I even got a compliment from Mr. Merriweather himself. He said he liked it ;)
By the end of the show we passed Daniel outside (well I didn't see him) and my sister was like "he is just over there".....I really wanted a photo but I really kinda star struck and I didn't want to run all the way back like a little groupie but after a little convincing I went back....I was like "Jeff it, I want a pic so I'm gonna go and ask for one".....anyways to cut a long story short; he was really nice and asked where we were heading too after the show. We ended up at the Hotel Illawarra in Wollongong dancing to Montell Jordan "This is how we do it" amongst other songs. I love it when unplanned nights become the BEST memories ever.

Daniel Merriweather is still currently touring Australia. There are still heaps of gigs left so go and check him out!

ps. My sister was singing with Daniel Merriweather. Not trying to brag. Just saying.
pps. Sorry I tried to upload a video to share of all his vocal goodness but it wouldn't load on here or youtube. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO >,<

This is how we do it @ Hotel Illawarra

Big Love,

USA bound

This time last year I was eagerly anticipating my first ever trip to USA and a little semi-reunion with my college besties and my sister. It was a big deal considering I was on the other side of Australia teaching and I hadn't seen them in a good 6 months.
It was seriously one of the best times ever and experiencing the US in the summer was even better.
When I returned to Australia I headed straight back into a new job, a new town and a new house and I really didn't have any time to upload many pics from my trip. But now that I am only two months away from my second USA trip; I just can't help but to look through all my old photos and reminisce whilst trying to plan a new holiday schedule. Anyways better late than never I guess. Here are some photos of my time in Chicago. I will probably start to gradually upload all the photos I had intended to share last year. This was from our first day when we took a walking tour of Chicago :)

Spotted Blouse: Best and Less / Tights: Target / Shoes: Converse

Are all my US readers excited for summer? I know I am!

Big Love,
