some really cool videos to watch

And a few photos via pinterest

I thought today I would share with you some videos and photos that are really inspiring me at the moment to make me excited and motivated.

I have been spending a lot of time on my computer recently, thanks to the fact that it is the summer holidays here in America and I'm a little low on friends. But youtube and Pinterest suffice, right?.... right???? 

To be completely honest, moving countries is really, really difficult. No, actually, in reality, it's crap. Not just for the obvious reasons like leaving family/friends and your 'home', but for just simple things like not having the same brand of peanut butter, not being able to re-design your room because all your stuff is in a shipping container. The nerves of starting a new school, (which I like doing because I love to meet new people), but just the idea of having to, once again, create new relationships with kids, teachers and even a different education system. 

I wasn't really planning to write all that but it kinda just spewed out. I have lived in a different country before, and I made amazing memories from doing that, so I know in the back of my mind I will love it. I know that it will definitely open up really good opportunities that i'm super excited about, and it's going to be so cool to go to an American high school! But if you're an expat, or have been, you'll definitely understand where I'm coming from. 

Due to the fact that I don't really have any of my personal belongings that make me inspired, I have been feeling so un creative. I'm that kind of person who needs to be doing something (preferably creative) or I'm just a very moody teenager. And not being inspired to do something creative is making it hard for me to come up with good quality blog content and making my Instagram look a certain way. (So if you have been noticing the lack of "good" suff on my social media.. sorry 'bout that.) 

Anyway, sorry for that cheesy, weird ramble, and back to the post that I actually had planned to do.


Video

French Style Secrets : Inside the Wardrobe of Camille Rowe | British Vogue

I stumbled across this video when I was binge watching British Vogue's youtube, because their videos are by far the best Vogue Vids (sorry Australia). Camille's wardrobe is my dream wardrobe. Her denim and graphic tees, mixed with her beautiful, vintage shirts and funky jackets is very Alexa Chung with just a hint more something... and I love it! 

Free Advice from Man Repeller

Leandra Medine from Man Repeller is my all time idol. I love every thing she does, wears and writes. (I sound like a weird stalker, and to be honest, I probably am) This is a video of her giving free advice to people in NYC. 

Emma Watson: Fashion on Gender Equality #HeForShe | All Access Vogue | British Vogue

I think this video is very important to listen to and take in what everybody is saying. I don't particularly like how the video was 'represented', I guess is the right word, though. The way the people in the video posed, whilst having their voices played over the clip of them looking majestically off into the distance, made me a little uncomfortable. And I was quite disappointed by the fact that they where not representing anyone of colour, even though they where talking about diversity and equality in the fashion industry. But the message is good... so maybe watch with your eyes closed? haha.
