You cant possibly imagine the squeals that came out when i finally got to hold a copy of the Autumn Peppermint edition in my eager little hands! I am not one for being able to hold good news to myself so i was quite proud that i didnt let a peep out since late last year about one of the photos by the incredible Christine Lim making the cover of one of my favourite magazines, let alone a spread on the inside too!

After Christine and I were set the mission to complete the shoot on a day of our choosing, we decided to go for it and shoot five outfits in two hours in our local Kings Park, what followed was absolute hilarious chaos, running around trying to catch the sunlight while kids are playing soccer and family's are taking afternoon walks, all the while trying to keep it PG rated changing outfits in my car and trying to pin curl my hair in my revision mirror! I still giggle when i think about it...but we did it, and the photos turned out amazing so thats a true test to the talent of Christine!! Thank you for making me look like i had hours to get ready when it was just a quick change in the car :)

Opportunities like this seem so surreal to me, i keep waiting for someone to say "oh wait, this is not for you its for someone else" all i can put it down to is if you are passionate about something it will shine through to other people and nothing but good things will come! As well as all this magazine excitement i have a beginner vintage hair how-to class kicking off on Sunday (first one for 2014 huzzah!) cant wait to be pin curling and sipping coffee with some vintage loving lasses!

I also want to say a big thank you to all my readers and genuinely lovely people i have met either through blogging or instagram, it really is an amazing community to be a part of and i know i gain a lot of encouragement and genuine support from you all!

Xx Ally

Great story and wonderful pics Ally. Picked up a copy of peppermint, with some of my work in it and read your story, so thought I'd take a look at your blog. Well done!
