Well, this weekend was magical to say the least. First of all, I'm super, super sorry I haven't been blogging over the past couple of days but I hope the awesomely rad photographs in this post make up for my little absence (and perhaps provide you with a pretty decent excuse as to why I was away).So this weekend the awesome Tavi Gevinson from Rookie Mag and Style Rookie spoke at the Melbourne Writer's Festival. I've been following her blog since late 2008, I was 14 and completely at awe at the world of blogging. I was incredibly lucky to get tickets to both of her Melbourne events, her talk 'Tavi's World' on Friday night and Rookie Day on Saturday, a special event for girls (and boys!) under 20 years old. I started out typing out the two amazing days I had but then I felt that my words didn't justify the amount of fun, the amount of emotion and the amount of bliss I experienced. To sum the entire two days up, it's probably going to be the pinnacle of my adolescent life and I'm incredibly thankful for the time that I had and the people I hung out with. It was amazing and I will never forget the kindness I experienced. I feel very, very lucky. And thank you especially to the Melbourne Rookie Meet up girls who are amazing, unique and just fabulous in every single way! These are some photographs from the two days.
