Today I attended a Student Industry Day. Total focus of the day was on making your move on the media industry. More particularly making it as a journalist.
We were fortunate to attend workshops fronted by journalism experts. Among those presenting were journalists, freelance journalists, reporters, investigative reporters and editors. My did I enjoy the day. Today confirmed my passion and drive to forge a career as a freelance writer/journalist.
I've got some serious planning to do, to navigate my path to success. Feeling totally inspired to knock on doors to gain some practical experience.
Today reinforced for me it's about time I jump onto twitter and started tweeting! I've got to get connected with current social media tools.
I can't explain how I love reading and listening to news and current affairs. It's a big part of who I am. I'm buzzing tonight after such an inspiring day!

Not so long ago I was introduced to Garance Dore, one of the world's most renowned fashion illustrator's, photographer's and blogger's. Garance is self taught.
I'm a huge fan of Garance's blog.
Recently I was fortunate to view an exclusive art exhibition collaborated by Westfield with Garance Doré and seven iconic Australian designers.
In celebration of winter fashion, Garance Dore was commissioned to create seven illustrations inspired by the winter wardrobes of Arthur Galan, Bettina Liano, Country Road, Gorman, Leona Edmiston, Thurley & Zimmermann.
The illustrations were just amazing. I am in love with this French lady's work.
Here is the link to a little film titled 'A Month In Fashion' on Garance's blog. (You'll need to scroll down the page a little to find the link). Here Garance share snippets from fashion weeks in New York, Milan and Paris. Hope you enjoy it as much I did. What a life!

It's been more than 3 long weeks since I last wrote here.
I'm realising it takes alot of organisation, excellent time management skills in conjunction with perseverance to keep a blog going.
For lots of reasons I've been absent, in a nut shell I've been focused on other things. Very busy doing other things. I've been distracted by other things.
But I am somewhat surprised by the fact I have really missed writing here. More than I would have ever expected.
I'm hoping I can manage to turn over a new leaf and post here more frequently. Hoping I can get my act together. Hoping tomorrow is the day I get myself and my life in order so that I can write here again.
My goal, to write here 3 times a week. I'll be giving it a red hot go!
To those of you who are regular bloggers what is your secret to never dropping the blogging ball? Are you willing to share a tip or two?
How do you manage to keep blogging without fail when I'm sure your life is just as busy as mine. I'm sure it's not without all the little dramas which always seem to pop up just when you think life is running to schedule.
It seems I don't cope well when I hit a bump. Or when the unexpected happens. Or when I just get busy juggling lots of balls.
