Sunny Side Up

Liana of @findingfemme roller skates in Geelong for Juliette Has a Gun

Last year I fell in love with the incredible experience of a Perfume Masterclass at Sweet Fern in Ballarat. At the end of my first masterclass, I walked away with a bottle of Juliette Has a Gun’s black bottled fragrance ‘Lady Vengeance’. It was my first proper perfume purchase and one that began a love affair. You may recall me talking about it in this blog post shoot I did which featured the bottle.

Ballarat Beat 2018


Another year, another Ballarat Beat. This year I had the pleasure of being one of the judges in the best-dressed competition. Unfortunately, due to an incredibly bad haircut, I ended up wearing a wig, so plenty of people didn’t recognise me. I also didn’t have a photographer so I only have a couple of photos of that outfit on my phone. Here are the few shots I have from this year's event. You can check out previous years here and here.

Skate Baby

A while ago, I made a vow to try my best to ‘do something’ in my blog shoots after a friend’s young daughter got excited thinking I was a train driver (read it here). I realised how big an influence my posts could be on so many people that I was inspired to be active and engaged in my shoots in the hope that in some little way, other people could see how they can engage with the world around them. So, given that I’ve had these skates for a few years it’s surprising I’ve not done a blog shoot in them before.

A seasonal tradition orchestrated by my sister and I is a dinner on the beautiful Lake Wendouree. In order for this dinner to adventure to be right, we have parameters to guide the preparations.

Geelong Cellar Door

Liana of @findingfemme at Geelong Cellar Door in Fame and Partners Gingham skirt

Last weekend I was meant to be attending my favourite music festival: So Frenchy So Chic. I bought an early bird ticket in 2017, had my outfit planned, was doing my makeup fresh from the shower when I realised I had a huge knot of anxiety in my chest while thinking about the festival. I’m not sure what brought it on. It could be that as an introvert, my new job dealing with lots of people all day requires more self-care. I’m not actually sure what it was as anxiety isn’t straightforward like that. So my partner in crime and I decided to have a day of relaxing instead.
