Absolutely stoked to see that so many of my incredible friends and productions I was lucky enough to be a part of, are in the mix to be nominated for a Logie this year! This includes Bite Club- and so many of my beautiful @9biteclub fam, who I am honoured to have worked alongside. Ya gal has also been put forward this year for Most Popular Actress for the role of Amber (who I just bloody loved playing so much), and would appreciate any support! Link to vote is in my bio if you have a spare minute during your morning cuppa! ✨
What a beaut Sunday arvo on the harbour, thanks to @hamptonssydney 🥂
[insert bullshit inspirational quote about life balance here] 🍕💕
Don’t want no drama. 👋🏼 (I wasn’t planning on posting this to my actual feed, but I just loved tonight’s class so much, that I wanted to share @rebecca_ratcliff’s chorey. I love that you can always turn up to this studio- even without any dance history- and just be completely free. So glad to have found my way back to dancing after all these years.)
Throughout life, we have many people who influence our trajectory. Our parents, friends, teachers. But I’m of the belief that in addition to that fundamental basis, you get a small handful of people who come from absolute left wing. They cross your path not to just influence or guide you. They cross your path to completely upend everything you ever believed about life- including what you preconceived to be your absolute limits. Yesterday morning, myself and my Letting Go family received the devastating news that the heart and soul behind our entire skydiving experience, @christian_whyte, had tragically passed away. Whilst it’s breaking my heart to even write this- as I still can’t comprehend how the embodiment of life itself, is now gone- I can promise you one thing, Christian. You were irrefutably one of those people, for me. And I know I can speak on behalf of @livphyland, @thehealthytradie and @beaupilgrim when I say, you irrevocably changed our lives, forever. Yes, you taught us how to skydive; which will forever live on as the single biggest gift anyone has given me. But most importantly, you taught us how to live. To truly live. All you ever wanted was to inspire others to live life as wholeheartedly as you always did- to pack up the car, to book the flight, to get in the ocean at sunrise, to push yourself beyond the barriers we all seem to set for ourselves. And I promise to keep living like that, from here on in. Christian, I’ll never look up to the clouds without being reminded of you. I am so honoured to have been up there with you, trusting in you, and sharing the most raw moments of my life with you. For all the double checks of my pack, for all the quiet conversations we shared when I just didn’t know how I was going to get myself out of that plane, to every single laughing fit, dance break, and adventure you took us all on. Thank you, big bro. ‘For once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.’ I know I’ll see you up there one day, when I return. Love you mate. Thank you.
Happy Valentines Day, lovers. 💘
Another thank you to my talented gal @makeupbynoramoore, for her beautiful makeup job for @tropfest on Saturday eve. Loved the cheeky pop of colour (look at me sounding like I know anything about makeup.) Just grateful to have had someone who definitely does 💁🏼♀️ 📸: @nath_atkins
Thanks for a beaut night, as always @tropfest! 🥂🎥 Wanted to also say a huge thank you to the beautiful @makeupbynoramoore, for sorting out this mug of mine (more pics of her incredible work to come). And thank you to @therealdonarnold for this cheeky carpet pic.
Wanted to thank my main gal @livphyland for taking me on a hot date to the @lepetitrose picnic, yesterday. Whilst it initially felt strange to trade in the trusty tea thermos for a bottle of rosé, it surprisingly didn’t take us too long to adjust to this type of picnic. 😉🥂
After a week of cooking brekky in the van, I decided to take myself on a little belated birthday date to @coohalexandria on my first morn back in Syd. I always forget how much of a hidden gem it really is. ☕️ #coohalexandria
Would be happy cooking out of this kitchen for the rest of my life. Wanted to say a huge thank you to the absolute gems at @jucyworld for saving our east coast roadtrip, with less than twelve hours notice. I always love pitching a tent and setting up camp. But honestly, I definitely got used to just being able to effortlessly pull up wherever we wanted to sleep, cook or swim. If you’re wanting to explore Australia, this is seriously the best way to do it. Cannot bloody wait for the next roadtrip. Maybe New Zealand is next up? 🗺 #jucyworld
Cheeky morning dip before hitting the road again in our ol’ faithful @jucyworld van. I could seriously live happily like this- driving from beach to beach- for the rest of my life.
Just wanted to say another huge thank you to my incredible family for not only making the trip up to Bondi for my 25th, but for the last twenty five years of unconditional love, support and fierce belief in me. I wouldn’t be the woman I am today, had it not been for the upbringing I was lucky enough to have. It’s never lost on me how unbelievably fortunate I am to call these two my parents- and to have grown up with such incredible siblings too. I promise to keep trying to make you all proud during my 25th year, no matter what it may have in store. (As a cheeky sidenote- thank you to @watsonsbayboutiquehotel for letting me spend my third birthday in a row at my favourite spot in Syd!)✨🥂
Twenty five. Woke up this morning feeling overwhelmingly grateful for this life of mine. Twenty five years of lessons I was lucky enough to learn, places I was lucky enough to call home, people I was lucky enough to have loved, friendships I was lucky enough to keep, and memories that I am lucky enough to call mine, forever. After having my entire family up from Melbs for the last few days, and to have been surrounded by so much love on my birthday yesterday, I was truly reminded of how bloody lucky I really am. Even after they were all back on a plane, I was still being spoiled with this sunset picnic and swim at my favourite little beach last night. (Apparently you’re never too old to shovel your favourite pasta into your face). To anyone whose path has crossed mine over the last twenty five years- thank you. ✨
Thanks to the gems at @famousfootwear_aus, ya gal has got you sorted for your next summer sesh. (Especially if you’re a battler like me and never know what shoes to wear to ‘drinks’. CASUAL OR HEELS, PLZ BE MORE SPECIFIC). You’ll also be delighted to hear that I am one of those ~insta girls~ who can give you 20% off at checkout when you chuck in MARNYK20. I’ve only got you covered until Feb 1st, so get ‘em while they’re hot. (Please note: That’s 20% more you can spend on frosé.) 💁🏼♀️ #ffwsquad
Tea & Sea’s apply. ☕️🌿🌊
Salt water morn, fresh water arvo 🌿
This. This moment, this afternoon. Admittedly, I was feeling a little out of sorts this morning. I’m sure some of you can relate when I describe the emotional residue that gets left after Christmas and the New Year. I was irrefutably feeling it this morning, pretty hard. Then I received a text this afternoon, from my beautiful sister @kateboladian, who happens to be back in town for a few days. After a quick swim, we got to sit for almost four hours- and by the end of it, I finally felt like myself again. Grounded by someone who just fucking knows me- and someone I know and love just as equally. All I wish for this coming year, is more of this. More gratitude for those who truly understand and unconditionally love me, and allow me to do the same for them. I hope you all kick all the goals you’ve set for 2019, but man, I truly just wish the above for us all. Connection. Understanding. Gratitude. (And fuck it, a bit of Prosecco while you’re at it. 🥂) Kate, I miss and love you always. Thank you.
Goodbye 2018, you little son of a bitch. Feeling very grateful for this little moment tonight though- my best friend, oysters, champagne, a summer storm and the ocean. Ready for the next chapter ⚡️
