"I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill, I threw the day old tea from the cup" - my new fave song by @teddysphotos โšก๏ธ (y'all I have a bio and maths exam tomorrow so I'll check back in on Thursday when they are over ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ‹) this weekend is going to be so relaxing and awesome once exams are over! I'm so excited ๐ŸŒ and the holidays are soon which means icecream, coffee, friends, animals, filmmaking, living ๐ŸŒพ

Resharing old photos because ya girl is still studying for exams ๐ŸŒน anyone want to do my 7 exams this week? Because I don't โšก๏ธ anywho in the meantime, I want to know more about you all! You're all fascinating people, tell me more about yourself in the comments ๐Ÿ vegan? activist? Dreams? languages you speak? passions? ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ

Throw back to good company + the best vegan sweets from @makersyd // currently studying for a psych exam and listening to piano tunes ๐Ÿ much love to all of you who sent me dm's two days ago (they've all been read - I'll respond to all today) and also, a photo quote of me is now on @unbound_project 's page ๐Ÿ› head over to share the love ๐ŸŒพ

Saddened to hear of little Ripley's death a few days ago โšก๏ธ Photos of Ripley and her friends have always been my most liked and loved photographs, because of course, who could not scroll past this little girl's face? She, named after Ellen Ripley, was always a reminder that good exists in the world, where goats aren't farmed, where animals are safe from exploitation. I always shared photos of her and her friends to remind you of how exquisite and beautiful these animals are once you strip off the objectification. People like @boochaces protected her and looked after them when no one else wants to. Rest in peace little girl ๐Ÿ’• photo taken by @sfisherx โค๏ธ

this week I received some new products to try from @fairlingscompany and my favourite one from this month's is the @vanessameganorganics white tea cream ๐ŸŒน I think an important thing to remember with buying these types of products is to look for products which are not only vegan but also fair trade ๐ŸŒž fighting for worker's rights and defeating the constructs of capitalism are uber important too ๐ŸŒ™ for the workers, animals and planet ๐Ÿ (p.s everything at fairlings is vegan + fair trade + sustainable) ๐Ÿ›

"That which Voldemort does not value, he takes no trouble to comprehend. Of house-elves and children's tales of love, loyalty, and innocence, Voldemort knows and understands nothing. Nothing. That they all have a power beyond his own, a power behind the reach of any magic, is a truth he has never grasped." - Dumbledore โšก๏ธ reading about how activists burnt their camps to the ground in the final moments of their protest against the South Dakota pipeline. Reading about men and women who put their lives on the line to protect those they loved. Of the people who walked for justice yesterday for the billions of animals. I found myself returning to these books. The parallels between Harry's world and ours is remarkable. One must not forget, that even Hogwarts fell to Voldemort before Dumbledore's Army won ๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒน

Watching Harry Potter while writing a bio report โšก๏ธโšก๏ธ I'm curious... why did you go vegan?

I've got a week until exams so no pretty photo making time for me but I had to share this pic from the beautiful Dutch @fabiennedenberg // ๐ŸŒน currently memorizing psych studies and writing essays...IB people where are you at? ๐ŸŒž I've been relatively on top of emails and dm's at the moment so feel free to send things through ๐ŸŒพ hope all you lovely people are well and doing okay!

part 3/3; international women's day is about fighting for justice but also about celebrating the incredible women in the frontlines of advocacy. Here are a few of my favourites; @weanimals a legend of a woman, whose photography of animals is changing the world. She is also behind the @unbound_project which celebrates female animal activists ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’• @floristipy a young, beautiful, French German human being whose words on self love and positivity will leave you inspired ๐ŸŒพ @rupikaur_ and @cleowade @brennatwohy their poems are beautiful and speak about justice, liberation and love๐Ÿ‹ oh and my film teacher, @brosisfilms - she's a legend and is killing it in the world of film โšก๏ธ // check em out and tag your inspiration women below! ๐ŸŒน

Part 2/3: "When a woman makes a film it is a radical act. You are inserting yourself into a place where you have been absent." - Ava DuVernay ๐ŸŒน women are absent from so many professions. From economics, from law, from the film industry, women are absent from positions of power. This is a post for all of you out there who want to go into professions where you are disadvantaged and the minority. Don't feel that you are not good enough, go out and do what you love, do the things you want to do, go be a lawyer, be a doctor, be a hairdresser, be a translator. I think of all the women and femme identifying folk who are looking at their dream professions, and don't feel worthy enough. Still in 2017 the number of female cinematographers at the Oscars was zero. Zero. Women in the technology industry are greatly underrepresented. I'm here to tell you I see you. Your dreams are valid. Your fight is valid. Your job is valid. โšก๏ธ

#internationalwomansday Part 1/3 // after yum cha on Saturday I was catcalled by an old white man as he walked past the bus stop. This is old news. Then last night walking home from school I was honked at by two young men in a car. This is old news. 24 year old Surge in Newtown, the two men on the train, the four men at the intersection. The unwanted dm's, comments, emails. This is all old news. For women it is not if you've been catcalled, but when, where. I am put into boxes for the clothes I wear, the things I say. I'm sick of it. Let's not make it old news anymore, let's make something we talk about, something we fight. Your body is yours. Your stories are yours to write about. Your streets are yours to walk on. Your trains are yours to ride. ๐ŸŒ™ today is about sharing stories of women. let me tell you mine.

(sleeping on the couch because a redback has made its home under my bed ๐Ÿ•ท) // sometimes you need the happy photos to remind you of all the good in this world, like this picture of a young calf by @sfisherx // this week I've been reminded by the incredible spirit of hardworking people and their determination and compassion and making the world a better place. I've gotten to know more people in social media too, young and old people working tirelessly to save the world. This little cow makes me so happy, look at his peaceful eyes. Free from a life of violence, of exploitation. Sometimes people get so caught up in arguments and facts and figures that they forget about these guys. Going vegan means you're saving these calves. Is that not a good enough reason? ๐Ÿฎ there is so much good in this world if you look hard enough ๐Ÿ’•
