Anna May  graphic designer + illustrator (with a burning love for design, style and desserts) 〰 melbourne, land down under ♡ let’s collab!

I miss the days when I could wear just a dress and stroll in the sun. Now no matter how I dress I look like the Michelin mascot, pfft. 🙄

Outfit details feat. a secondhand dress I copped for $10 at Camberwell Market and my mom’s vintage LV from who knows when and where! 😌

Gudetama lovers show yourselves!!! 👀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Made my first ever fondant cake. Was gonna go for a Rilakkuma theme but then I was like... I better not be too ambitious. 🙃 Maybe someday! 🎈
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This cake also marks the last class for my Patisserie Cert IV. When I first set foot in class 1.5 years ago, I was pretty nervous, wasn’t sure if doing this was even a right move for me. Especially since I already hold a Diploma in Advertising & Graphic Design. I moved ABROAD, terrified and paranoid of being discriminated for my race or mocked for my accent but instead found myself in a loving bunch of friends. You know who you are. ❤️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Next challenge is to pray and hope that Commercial Cookery Cert IV is just as fun. 😅

It’s mid 2018... and I don’t feel like I’ve done much. Downed a lotta bubble tea tho. 🕶
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was mere seconds before I spilled my drink on myself. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Just some new things I got recently – a Fujifilm XT-20, a Gucci Flora perfume (gifted by @amanda.zj.huang 😘), a @copywrongtocopywriter book, some amazing @frank_bod products (with @ellenporteus‘s illustrations on them! 😍), and an Adventure Time umbrella I picked up in a deserted train 2 years ago. 👀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Been wanting to experiment with making short videos with my new Fujifilm but somehow just can’t bring myself to start. Send help! 😩
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also can’t wait for finals week to be ovVeErRrR!!! 💆🏼‍♀️

I had a thing with faux freckles. Each dab on my face was a “Is this too much?” but I keep drawing more anyway. 👩🏻‍🎨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Low key wanna try doing rainbow or even golden freckles! ⚡️

What makes you complete?

Got a little carried away at @bentwoodfitzroy – my brunch last weekend consisted of chilli scrambled eggs and salmon pokecado for mains and the hotcakes and golden gaytime panna cotta (personal fave ✨) for dessert! To top it all off, @cinnconn and I had beetroot and mango smoothies to down all of that. Talk about greedy! 😜
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Noteworthy shoutout to @pop_and_pac for the beautiful brand identity and @ritzghougassian for the breathtaking interior design. Absolutely love the quaint yet stylish venue. 😩👌

When I was little, I left the window open at night because I wanted Peter Pan to swoop in and bring me to Neverland. I might've also had a big crush on him. How wonderful would it be to just never ever grow up, up in the stars with him? But obviously, you can't have everything in life. Fast-forward to today, I'm now a full grown adult dealing with responsibilities and my very own quarter-life crisis. Groan. I'm in constant denial that I'm now another year older.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here's to never growing up. Scratch that. Here's to staying forever young at heart. 🎈

Birthday stories are on my highlights. ✨

Feelin’ my outfit and my pull-through braids for the #lvnblockparty that I just had to pull @anastasiasujana aside to help me snap a photo in the pretty cafe washroom. I promise I’m not usually this extra. 🌻

I’ve just come to realise how precious Sundays are. ✨ You get to make up what to do in your quiet mornings. Your 3pm creative project. Your impromptu dinner plans. Your cosy night snuggling under a heated blanket, just to unwind and recharge for another hectic week. ☕️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What do Sundays look like for you? 🌿

I’ll come out of my hiding place when I actually deal with my social anxiety and up my IRL social game. 👀

Champagne jellos (with edible flowers as garnish 🌼) never hurt nobody, but it did give me a massive headache. 😳 Happened moments after I gobbled most of them down (before the teacher tossed the extras into the bin)! 🙈🥂
