No nickname for me! People just usually call me bradee or braids
Which makes your star sign a?
Where did you grow up and where is your current home in the world right now?
I am born and bred in Tassie! legit the most beautiful place ever 😍
So what does a day in the life look like? Tell us everything from wake up to sun down...
Wellll on the weekdays I’m working as a hairdresser which I absolutely love. It’s great being able to make people feel and look beautiful. I am very creative, so this is the perfect job for me to be hands on and have fun with different haircuts and colours!
On my days where I’m not working, I love catching up with my friends and spending time with them doing things that we love and that make us happy. We often go to local markets, go op shopping, go out for a bit of brekky, and if were feeling like it, a cocktail or two to finish the day!
When I’m not with my friends, I’m often doing lots of little things I enjoy… Like drawing, making video edits, taking photos or finding new music to listen to ❤️
What’s one thing you do for self-love and self-care?
Meditating and affirmations! I’m very big on the Law of Assumption! So every morning I wake up and affirm straight away. I tell myself how I want my day to be and how it will make me feel. Before I head out of the day I often do some scripting in my journal, and before work and when I'm about go to sleep I often meditate. This has changed my life so much!
Favourite quote or mantra?
“If you obsess over whether your are making right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another. The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience”
That’s a little bit of a long quote, but it’s by far the best thing I’ve ever read. It definitely eases the mind and it’s one quote I always come back to!
Who and what inspires you?
I’m going to have to say the people that inspire me the most are definitely my mum and dad. They are two of the most amazing people I know, and being able to grow up alongside people that inspire and teach me every day is quite amazing.
When I think of what inspires me, it’s definitely thinking about how much personal growth I have done through situations that did not seem helpful at the time. Every ‘bad’ thing that ever happens to you isn’t actually bad, it is for a reason. You might not know what the reason is at the time, but it will always help you out in the future. I find that concept quite inspiring and helps me move forward and retain a positive mindset as often as possible.
What’s on top of your bucket list? One thing you’ve always wanted to do...
One day I want to somehow go to Milan fashion week. Who knows how I’ll get there, I will probably have to sneak in hahaha, but it is a bit of a bucket list dream I've had for awhile.
What would you say your everyday go to style is?
Gosh I change my style a lot! One day I’m wearing pretty dresses and the next day I’m wearing the baggiest jeans with the baggiest shirt hahaha! But in saying that, I am the first to try out new trends, and I often watch the latest runway shows and YouTube videos to see what is going to be trending. One thing about my style though is that I always want to stand out, I love trying outfits that are a bit out of my comfort zone and just have a cool vibe.
What are you vibing from your Rusty pieces?
I LOVE my new high waisted white jeans so much! I’ve never had a pair of jeans fit me so well before! I love pairing them with big t-shirts, just like the new Sun Moon Tee one I got! I got this in a few sizes up so I can wear it niiiice and baggy and to wear over my bathers when I go swimming in the summer. I love having some nice basics to go with everything, like the “everywhere” top and dress which I can wear casually or dressed up; they’re both.
