Month: April 2017

A week in outfits|StephStyles Uni

This month was extremely eventful with the Easter break, my boyfriend’s birthday celebrations and of course the masses of uni assessments piling on top. April was definitely a month to remember and as per usual, it flew by so quickly and it’s becoming a harsher reality that the middle of the year is fast approaching. Here is a snapshot of a week in outfits from April in no particular order. The days are becoming shorter and nights are windier and duller and with the seasonal changes, it means that you cannot prepare what to wear the day before. Nevertheless, here are a few of my outfits this month. Top: Cotton On Bottoms: Boutique.

Down the rabbit hole| White Rabbit Gallery

  If you live in Sydney, a visit to the White Rabbit Gallery is a must. Located in Surry Hills, this cute tucked away gallery showcases contemporary Chinese art installations focusing a lot on light and darkness and contrasts between white and black. My favourite artwork was the photography portraits of two individuals lying in a bathtub surrounded by koi fish. The little blurb beside the painting explained that the artist uses only people he knows for his photography so that there’s more of a genuine and personal connection between the person and the camera and that his art is a device for him to escape depression. The next level focused more on ‘darkness’ and there were separate rooms leading to various installations. One was an ongoing video of neon blue waves crashing gently surrounded by a hall of mirrors, making it look as though the waves was boundless. Another was just a large room expanded with abstract black shapes contrasted against a pure white room. The Gallery also has a cafe on the ground level …

5 Nostalgic Must-See Films

Now that Summer is officially over (much sadness), it’s the perfect time to snuggle up with a comfy blanket, peppermint tea and your favourite candles (any from Glasshouse are my ultimate faves) and binge on shows and films. Lately I’ve been reminiscing on a lot of nostalgic films that I’ve watched on repeat throughout my childhood and teen years. Watching a good film definitely defines who you are and your outlook on life and this list has shaped me in one way or another. Choosing 5 films was so hard because there are so many great films that have impacted or brought back such fond memories so I might do a second post later on. So whether you’re pondering as to what to watch next, or just want any excuse (literally me) to discover some really good movies, here is a list of my top 5 must-see nostalgic films. Titanic One of the most renowned and classic love story starring young Leonardo and Kate Winslet, this movie has been viewed in my household hundreds of …

Weekend Antics | Melbourne

Ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities and labelled as the Australian ‘New York’, I had the chance to visit the reputable city of Melbourne for a short weekend trip with my boyfriend, who studies Medicine at the nearby university. I arrived in Melbourne on Friday morning and spent the day on campus with my boyfriend as he introduced me to his roommates followed by a brief tour on and off campus. One thing I noticed was how spaced out and open everything is. If you looked into the distance, there was nothing really that prevented your line of sight and you could see miles and miles ahead of you. The next day we woke up early to catch the express train to Melbourne CBD where we would be staying for the weekend. It was my first time visiting Melbourne’s CBD so we had lots to see and explore as we walked up and down the shopping strips around Bourke street, Little Collins and near the Emporium. The first thing I did notice was that it was …
