In two hours something quite special is happening. Though I will have to leave the big reveal to a little later, my mental packing list is slowly forming and that little pocket of wanderlust in my heart and mind is becoming bigger.
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to join the beautiful team at Lenovo for a private conference with none other than Ashton Kutcher. Yes, swoon. Apart from being the most down-to-earth and cool guy, he is ridiculously smart… (and kind of really hot) Having invested in businesses like Sound Cloud, Uber and more, this guys clearly has a few things going for him.
That, and his ridiculously hot wife.
Ashton spoke about questions, and how there is such a thing as a stupid question. I had to agree, but quietly. Sometimes they just feel like room fillers, it’s the guy who hasn’t done the homework but wants to sound important. We all know one, or two.
Currently I am bending all of the rules of life hacking. In bed, laptop propped on my crossed legs, with wet hair – straight our of the shower and six hours until I have to get out of bed. This what not to do, kids.
But hear me out, I may not practice what I preach all the time, but I might still have a few pointers.
There are so many rules in fashion it tends to scare people off. The endless stories I’ve heard from friends saying that they just could never work with fashion or attend fashion related events because they don’t know “what to wear” or are just “not cool enough”. I must admit that fashion is a funny space, but it can also be a wonderfully exciting and endlessly creative space for you to run amok in.
Beach bum is such a stupid word, but when I get a rush from going for a sprint session, stripping down to my sports crop and undies to go for a swim – and feel every bit alive I know that there is something in my soul that feels good from this ritual.
Sunshine, sand, pre-workout.
Whatever it is, I love it. And having hair that can keep up with this lifestyle is a must for me.
I have never been a show pony.
And I don’t think I ever will be. It takes a certain character – a brave, bold and confident soul with a lot to say and a lot on offer. The big hu-ha of horse racing was fascinating to me when I first arrived in Australia, having grown up with these extremely powerful, spirited animals I didn’t really get it. I guess at this point you are heading towards the big X button in your browser’s corner as you came seeking Spring Racing fashion inspiration…
But hear me out.
