Fun little day out at #polointhecity thanks to @champagnepommeryau! (And mostly thank you to my adopted wives for the date @rebekahgiles @tarynwilliams.)
About two years ago, I remember having a conversation with @rubykeddie, asking her why the hell she hadn’t launched her own fashion line yet. I told her then, that I couldn’t wait to wear something of hers to an event one day. She promised she’d make the line happen. Two years later, and Ruby has gone and kept her promise. This dress is from her brand new line, @bykane_ 😍 Unbelievably proud of you Ruby. And thank you for letting me wear this bad boy! 💕 (And while I’m at it, thank you to @rhiarnwilko for being my hot date. No one holds their own like you. Love you always.)
Just a heads up, I have a fair few gems to thank for helping me get my shit together enough to look like an actual girl yesterday. So expect a couple more photos to come. But firstly, I wanted to start with a massive thank you to my beautiful makeup and hair angel, @clairewarmenhoven. I sat down in front of her and basically wished her luck with my mug- and she managed to produce this look! ✨ Whilst I quietly don’t wanna ever share her, for anyone in Melbs looking for an incredible makeup artist- Claire is your gal. 💕 Speaking of Claires: @clairefrancoiseskin managed to sneak me in for a very last minute tan (I’m a tan virgin- they scare the shit out of me to be honest), but Claire completely calmed my nerves and did the most incredible job- cannot recommend her enough! 😘
One week ago, myself, @kateboladian and @hammosan sat in our home on Ramsgate Avenue together, for the last time. A single mattress, two deck chairs, my camping table, our favourite thai and a bottle of red were all that remained in the empty apartment, after almost two years of calling it home. Out of all the nights shared under that roof, this might have been my favourite of them all. I’m so glad Hammo managed to capture that moment on the right- it honestly says all that needs to be said. Here’s to the next chapter! ✨📦🔑🍷
Dream team ✨ (Huge thank you to @jucyworld for getting us ratbags on the road to Albury and back!)
Heart is feeling very full after this past weekend. Not only am I feeling grateful for the chance to share my journey with so many open, intelligent and driven young women at @girls_who_glow_, but to stand alongside such inspiring humans sharing their stories of overcoming adversity, is such an overwhelming privilege. This is one of them, @samanthagash. Sam is the first female and youngest person to complete the four desert race (China, Egypt, Antarctica and Chile)- and is an absolute force to be reckoned with. Every time I hear Sam recount the adversity she has endured and pushed through, I inevitably end up in tears. I hope you all get the opportunity to cross her path one day- or that of any of the Girls Who Glow team. Thank you to @livphyland, @teigannash, @em_carey, @kieron_douglass, @christianmiranda and @julessebastian for being the incredible humans you are. So lucky to have you all in my life, and to see firsthand the impact you’re having on this world.
What am I gonna do without ya? 💫
End of an era. ✨
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to @thetodayshow for helping @glenn_marsden share his incredible mental health campaign with Aussie viewers on Sunday morning. Glenn, it’s such an honour to be an advocate for the @imperfectlyperfectcampaign. So thank you for trusting me to be your right hand man for your first (of many) interview! Very proud of you, mate. And hope the campaign continues to gain momentum, in order to reach those who need it most.
Just want to say a massive thank you to the @sydney_observer for featuring me on the cover of this month’s edition! (I’d also genuinely like to thank them for letting me share my story so honestly- it’s so rare that I read back on articles to see that all my answers were left exactly as I gave them, so thank you so much for that @sydney_observer) Much love. ✨ (Cover photograph by @jodypachniuk)
These two. Before the very last episode of @9biteclub airs tonight, I really wanted to let you all know just how fucking hard these two incredible humans worked to lead our show. I will never be able to comprehend how both Ash and Todd turned up every single day, consistently giving the energy they did, whilst running on the amount of sleep they only just managed to get every night for four months straight. And not once- legitimately not once- did I ever see any of them give any less of themselves on set throughout the entirety of the shoot. It was an honour to work alongside both of them- and even more of an honour to consider them both family now. This last episode was irrefutably the hardest I’ve ever been pushed in my work, so I’d also like to thank the beautiful @dom_monaghan_ for having the patience to create such a safe space to explore such dark scenes. The scenes you’ll see tonight were easily some of the most rewarding I’ve ever had the chance to shoot, and that is a complete testament to what a flawless and open actor Dom is. Such an honour. I really hope you all get the chance to watch this final ep, as I think we all left a little piece of ourselves back there for you to see. 8.40pm, tonight. Channel Nine. Much love, always. (And look, in hindsight, really wish I hadn’t ruined this photo by being a dickhead. This is why I can’t have nice things.)
This Wednesday. 8.40pm. Channel Nine. It’s all about to end.
With one final episode to go this Wednesday night, just wanted to take a little moment to say how bloody grateful I am to have been a part of our little @9biteclub family. Love and miss this absolute dream team ❤️
A huge thank you to @watsonsbayboutiquehotel for letting me spoil my main gal for her 25th birthday! Love ya always @rhiarnwilko 🥂🌴
You’re going to need to forgive the essay here. This post means more to me than anything I’ve ever shared. A week ago, I had the honour of being contacted by @glenn_marsden to be photographed for the @imperfectlyperfectcampaign. I am incredibly passionate about removing the stigma attached to mental health, so it was an absolute privilege to become an advocate for this important initiative. To accompany the photograph, I offered Glenn the below excerpt from my personal journal- an entry I wrote back in 2015 that I never thought I’d share with another soul. It was the lowest point of my life- but I hope it helps you to understand that mental health does not discriminate: ‘Melancholy. It has me pinned. Give me all consuming anger before you give me melancholia. It is indescribable. Like dull pain. Never have I felt more reckless or careless toward my acting career. Never have I felt more uninspired to pursue it. Never have I felt more alone. Apathy. There might not be a slower, more subtle killer. Ever. Sitting here in my favourite cafe, I can feel the cloudiness of apathy wash over me. I can’t even write clearly. Because I can’t see the point anymore, through the fog. I have tried to revisit all that I’ve accomplished so far in my life. But it is impossible to move past the negative thoughts. I can’t remember how to get myself out of this one. Or, I remember perfectly. But would rather try something reckless in order to feel something hard and fast. I want to scream. I want to cry. I want to feel something again.’ I finally reached breaking point- where I realised I needed help. After six sessions with a psychologist (and also discovering a severe vitamin D deficiency- blood tests are so important), I was able to get my mental health back on track. I was able to finally open up to those who cared about me the most, and I was able to fall back in love with my passion. If you can relate to the above experience, please know that it’s going to be okay. If you need someone to speak to, please visit @thebanksiaproject or dial 000 for urgent support. We are human. We all need to be heard. I promise you, you are not alone. #imperfectlyperfect
It might be all heavy brakes and innuendo jokes to begin with, but things take a dark turn for Amber in tonight’s episode of @9biteclub. 8.40pm, Channel 9.
Twenty minutes to go before the fifth ep of @9biteclub kicks off on @channel9! Whilst Amber may have finally confronted her fear of the ocean, she has no idea of just how much danger she’s still in. (Sidenote: look out for the cheeky shoutout to my mates at @vidasurfstore- Amber clearly has good taste in boards 🏄🏼♀️)
Very grateful for this cheeky little spread in @tvweekmag’s latest sister magazine, ‘TV Week Close Up’. Thanks to @thomasalexandermitchell for letting me be so honest about my trajectory, so far. #tvweekcloseup
