September Edit

The Mix – A daily, half-hour program run on the ABC that focuses on news in the art world. If you’re sick of sports and celebrity, you’ll love this.

Ratatouille – A favourite of mine ever since I was little, I re-watched this in French class and fell in love all over again. The Parisian streets, the way they visually describe food, the angles and frames of the animation … one of Disney’s best.

Caitlin Cutler films – A dreamy travel/wedding videographer. Adore her work – inspires me endlessly.

Who’s Line is it Anyway?  My absolute favourite comedy show EVER. Can NOT get enough of it. This vimeo channel has a heap of old episodes – you’re welcome.

Models Talk: Racism, Abuse and Feeling Old at 25 – an insight into the modelling industry. Though often thought to live the dream, easy life, there’s a whole heap of insecurity and judgement that comes with it.

Being a Phase – An extraordinarily written piece exploring the concept of ‘being a phase’ in relationships. Was aching at the end of this – the best reaction to art possible.

Pond Mag – A fav of mine; music, art and culture, in a no-shit format.

Why are Adult Women Infatuated with Teenage Girls? – This article literally changed my life. It’s a look into the phenomenon of youth fetishisation, which I have only just woken up to. Can’t recommend enough.

A Stretching Summer – A beautiful short story exploring youth with clarity and rawness.

Aqua-Marine, Halcyon Girls – The second issue of the Halcyon Girls mag!! Read for a look into the aquamarine crystal and the ocean.

saltsandandsmoothies.com – A mix of spirituality and plant-based recipes. My favourite of hers: the post that has me thinking money with a lot less guilt.

foreverconcious.com – In my quest to learn as much as possible about spirituality, I’m discovering new websites and resources, and this is my favourite so far.

Thin belts – After an unsuccesful whole-house search for my favourite, thick black belt, I was forced to add a thin, worn brown belt to my denim ensemble. Though I couldn’t quite decide if the look was ridiculous or amazing, I’ve jumped on board with the idea (arguably, ridiculous/amazing is my favourite kind of outfit anyway).

Levi denim – Vintage Levi’s are never a miss in Summer. I have a pair of over-sized denim cut-offs it’s finally hot enough to wear, and I’m on the look out for the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans.

Just below the knee – this is my current favourite cut in skirts and pants. I’m beginning a collection of 3/4 length pants in multiple colours, and adding to my already way too large skirt collection. The below-knee cut simulatenously makes you feel empowered, and like you should probably twirl around a few times.

Mens button-ups – stolen a few of my dad’s work shirts and keep them around the house to add something extra to a basic outfit, or throw on for a beach day.

Colour/prints – the crazier, the better. Forget the black and mix the patterns.

Strappy crops – My favourite look as we transition into summer is a pair of flowy pants or long skirt, and a strappy little top to slip on. Makes me feel like a yoga teacher.

Ditching the heel – Broke my favourite (and last) pair of heels a few months back, and haven’t worn a pair since. Despite occasionally missing the extra height, I feel so much more free and active.

Carrot and lemon juice – A typical monthly favourite. Sliced carrot, drenched in lemon juice, with plenty of hummus. You can’t go wrong.

Corn chips – Though I eat way too many of these for it be considered healthy, they’re the perfect snack to have on hand. With dip, by themselves or as a base for nachos, I go through a bag a week.

Thai food – Transitioning away from my standard order of satay sticks, spring rolls and rice to try some stir fries and curries. Pad King is a current favourite, but as I’ve just arrived in Thailand, there’s many more to enjoy!

Homemade wedges – Roughly chop up several potatoes/pumpkins/sweet potatoes, sprinkle with oil, rosemary and salt, and roast. Serve with sourcream and sweet chilli sauce.

Mango sorbet – blend frozen mango, lime juice, yoghurt and a natural sweetener (I use Natvia) – the most delicious, healthy summer treat.

Rockmelon/watermelon – Melon’s are my go-to this season – grab a quarter watermelon and a couple of spoons to take down to the beach, or chop up a whole rockmelon and bag it for school.

Pesto – We have jars and jars of homemade pesto at home, so I attempted a creamy take on it. Add sour cream and a dash of milk, heat on the stove while stirring until mixed, and serve with pasta and parmesan cheese.

Find Sea Foaming on Soundcloud and Spotify

Hidden Brain, You 2.0 one of my all-time favourite podcasts. This summer mini-series explores YOU, in all aspects of life. Well worth a listen.

Soundcloud Picks:

Nostalgia – a playlist by me, that encapsulates the music I was raised on.

Classical Piano – different types of white noise is magic for when you need that extra bit of concentrating. My current fav: Piano Clasico on Spotify.

September Mixtape the newest Sea Foaming mixtape.

Free Youth Workshops – You’ll probably be surpirsed by how many organisations offer free workshops and events for youth in your area. Find some Facebook groups and pages (Red Cross Young Humanitariums is a good starting point), and start paying attention to what they post. There’s some really amazing things – galleries, competitions, grants, livestreams, workshops, etc.

Gym classes – Gym’s aren’t just weights – most offer a tonne of classes. When you’re using the equipment, classes, and other facilities (sauna, pool, spa, etc.), you end up getting a lot more value for your membership. Check out your local gym’s schedule – mine has an array of pilates, yoga, boxing, tai chi, HIIT and more.

Perme8 – Several months back, I bought a $3 lipbalm at a little market. It was the best freaking lipbalm I’ve ever used. I’ve been desperately searching for the business, and I finally came across it online – the website didn’t work, but I managed to message them through facebook, and the lovely woman dropped off several lip balms and some complimentary soaps in my mailbox. Made my month.

Bedtime routine – Having a bedtime routine has been incredibly important for me this past month or so. My nights are so unpredicatable, and I’m getting little to no sleep – but whether it’s 10pm or 4am, a quick routine grounds me and prepares me for sleep. Generally, I run a heatpack through the microwave, switch on my salt lamp, put on a Bon Iver record, moisturise my face, rub some essential oils on my wrist/neck, and read for five to ten minutes.

Tabagotchi – A little in-browser app that reminds you when you have too many tabs open! Invaluable for a serial multi-tasker like myself.
