wolf & james...

I kept being asked for my online writing portfolio so I finally bit the bullet and created one. You can head over to Wolf & James to read my work which is currently a collection of short stories, poetry and reviews.

Wolves Eat Sparrows has been very therapeutic (even if at times I was guilty of an over share or too) but I will be focusing more on my portfolio than this blog from now on. I feel like it's time to move on to other projects.

Thank you to everyone for your support- I do hope to still post here from time to time. Ciao for now. xx

the knowing and journey...





We are but bees floating on dusty winds, soaking in tears trapped in the nothing, forever drowning in sweet sickly sorrow. JG

"I love people. Everybody. I love them, I think, as a stamp collector loves his collection. Every story, every incident, every bit of conversation is raw material for me. My love's not impersonal yet not wholly subjective either. I would like to be everyone, a cripple, a dying man, a whore, and then come back to write about my thoughts, my emotions, as that person. But I am not omniscient. I have to live my life, and it is the only one I'll ever have. And you cannot regard your own life with objective curiosity all the time..."

"For all revolutions, one thing is clear... even if some didn't work, the most important thing is that the best ideas survived. The same goes for personal revolts. What turns out good, what survives in you that makes you stronger."

LV forever...

I don't often post about fashion but the Louis Vuitton F/W 13-14 Ready to Wear collection (shown in Paris) was beyond spectacular. Now anyone who knows me also knows that while I love fashion I rarely spend the big bucks and I have far too erratic a personality to have proper fashionista style. "I wearz watz I likez" and sometimes that might be Calvin Klein petrol coloured stiletto pumps, more likely it's my black Havanas but sometimes it's my Louis Vuitton biker boots. The top part of me is normally still in its pyjamas with a cheap pleather jacket thrown on top if I'm going somewhere fancy... However that may be why this new offering appeals to me so much (though it's a little higher end than I could hope to afford).

Anyway here are my chosen highlights from the show. I adore the lace, hemlines, the plunging necklines and old world elegance of these pieces. Did I mention the coats? The coats are simply what dreams are made of.










Kate Moss closed the show and I know she has received some criticism but VA VA VOOM! I think she just gets better and better. She has that certain 'Je ne sais quoi'. That one in a million, unflappable superwoman appeal. Indescribable, desirable and forever.

Also, they have this new technology called 'video' where the images move and dance across the screen in front of your eyes. It's the bomb. You can watch the 'video' of the show here.

summertime sadness...

Shot at Bronte on an underwater disposable that was 8 months out of date. Never accept free cameras from strangers. Or always accept free cameras from strangers. Whichever. x








"I'm feelin' electric tonight
Cruising down the coast goin' 'bout 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
Oh if I go, I'll die happy tonight..."

beat on and on...

Is it strange to want to be a heroine in a Wes Anderson film? My birthday is in two days. I have cut my hair, bought new clothes and thrown a lot of things away. What does it all mean? I'm not sure yet but as I move closer towards death I embrace renewal.

short+sweet...

I was really lucky this year to get to be a part of the Short+Sweet festival. I have never acted before in my life but have always wanted to try so I auditioned and was chosen by Director Mark Fowler to play Emily in 'Zombie Love'. I had so much fun rehearsing and performing. It was such a supportive environment and everyone was amazing. I have learned a lot and even forged some (hopefully) lifelong friendships. I hope to do a little bit more acting- I am currently shooting a short film- but I still really want to focus on my writing (and earning some dineros). x

Watch our play, Zombie Love! (does my voice really sound like that?!- Ah meh gawd!)

colour run...

I finally got my analogue photos from the MS Colour Run. I'm pretty happy with them especially since they were taken with a disposable camera wrapped in glad wrap! Our coloured clothes and shoes are still sitting in plastic bags in my laundry :) Thanks to all those who donated- you are superstars! x

zombie love...

I am currently appearing in the play 'Zombie Love' as part of the Short+Sweet festival. I play Emily, a girl who has finally found love with the one man her best friend Kathy can't steal. The problem is Walter is a zombie and Kathy will stop at nothing to break them up.

Our photo call-

Our leading man, Karol Binkowski, was recently featured in the North Shore Times. You can read the article here.

I am really enjoying being a part of something so well written (by Earl T. Roske) and brilliantly directed by Mark Fowler. I owe a great debt and special thanks to my fellow cast mates Karol and Luna Jace who could not be more supportive or amazing both as actors and human beings. We play at the King Street Theatre until Jan 27 so come along!
