The Show Must Go On!

I left fashion school because I didn’t think there was much left in it for me, and I felt like I was creatively STARVING, so it makes sense that I should jump head long in to my next creative adventure!

I want to create amazing over-the-top pieces, so I thought it was only natural to look into some local theater groups… and found one! It also just so happened that they were having a sign up night a few nights after I messaged them, so I got to go and start from the very beginning of the show process with everyone else. Some would say the stars are aligned!

I joined the group thinking that I could be involved with costumes, dressing, makeup and any other backstage bits that need to be done for the show, and may have left with my arm slightly twisted into filling a small role… it is yet to be determined what that will look like…

Regardless of what type of role it turns out to be, I am terrified! But I know I need to get used to the stage if I ever want to perform musically at least! Plus confidence under pressure and on stage never hurt for overall personal development…

The show must go on!

Try Tuesday: A Faux Mohawk!

I have a 70’s themed Christmas party to attend tonight (although it’s technically a Studio 54 theme,  but hey rules are made to be broken… especially in the 70’s punk scene!).

Anywho, I thought I’d give a faux mohawk a go! I teased and sprayed it liberally with lacquer, and here are the results…

It’s a little more wavy than I was aiming for but honestly I quite liked it a little different than the usual! I also think my ashy regrowth worked quite well with it too because it looked like I had intentionally only bleached the hawk 😉 win!

Party time!

Try Tuesday: Balsamic, Maple & Garlic Tempeh

OK so this may be a pretty unexciting ‘try’ for most, but hey I like to eat, and therefore try new recipes and foods! After a jam-packed day to get work cleared before the end of the year, it was about as creative as I had time for!

I got the recipe from Angela Liddon’s “The Oh She Glows Cookbook”, and it really was about as simple as it comes! I threw the super-quick marinade over the tempeh and put it in the fridge last night, then threw it straight into the oven when I got home.

While it might look fairly unexciting in its casserole dish, it tasted absolutely delicious… sweet, smoky, and tangy all at once. What I can’t show you is what it SMELLED like! It smelled exactly like fresh garlic bread, have mercy…

So a successful try I would say (except the couscous that I ate it with, drizzled with herb-infused flaxseed oil… epic fail on that front).

I hope you’re having a productive day!
