What are you looking at besides this email? I’m currently looking at all the mess I have to sort through in my room. Too many piles of clothes and records, its getting ridiculous.
What are you obsessed with at the moment? At the moment I’d have to say I’m obsessed with “Touch The Leather” by Fat White Family, I think I’ve listened to it about 30 times today. Also this beaut 70s suede jacket I got given last week, which matches my dream motorbike perfectly.
What creative activities & pursuits, endeavours are you embarking on? I’ve taken photos of the Melbourne music scene, all on film, for almost a year now so I’m thinking about compiling them all and making a zine. I also play in Splinter Cell, which is finally starting to come together. Half of my room is just instruments that I don’t know how to play because I get really bored but am also incredibly impatient. Hopefully I can get through them all one day.
Who are some of your favourite badass babes? (Famous/family/friends) Wow tough question, it seems that everyday I’m meeting new badass babes! The Tote is becoming a bit of an unofficial bad gal headquarters, take a look in there you’ll find heaps. I think my biggest badass influences would have to be Debbie Harry, Joan Jett, PJ Harvey, Vivienne Westwood, Nina Hagen, Lydia Lunch, Marina Abramovic, Cindy Sherman, etc etc. I do have to note that my mums are probably the biggest badass babes I’ve ever met, and nothing I ever do will be cooler/tougher than the stuff they used to get up to…
What does sexy mean to you? Sexy for me is an aura of confidence and a strong presence. I don’t think it matters what you’re wearing, if you’ve got a confident atmosphere you’ll look sexy 100% of the time.
And lastly how do you define a babe? A babe is someone whose confident in themselves and isn’t afraid of breaking up the “boys club”. She’s someone whose tough, looks out for fellow gals, holds her head up high, and has killer style.
What are you looking at besides this email? Dogs skateboarding
What are you obsessed with at the moment? Sims 4 custom content and Justin Bieber
What creative activities & pursuits, endeavours are you embarking on? I’ve just graduated from Communication Design at RMIT, in the meantime I want to do a bunch of collaborations with my creative friends, personal projects, some freelance work and to also try out different creative opportunities and jobs, figuring out exactly what I want to do with my life.
Who are some of your favourite badass babes? (Famous/family/friends) omg I love so many badass babes that the list will go forever. Right now all I can think of is Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliot and Alyssa Edwards. I’m also super lucky to have so many friends I know that are badass babes
What does sexy mean to you? Sexy is when you know that you look good and you flaunt it, being comfortable in your own skin and feeling great about yourself.
