New Year, New Missy...2017 looks like its blessing us in all kinds of ways.
I grew up on Missy. My first concert was Missy. Thank god theres new music Missy.
Today she dropped some fire featuring rapper Lamb in I'm Better. What makes me excited for her new music is not only is she lyrical genius, you can tell her creativity is on another level whenever she drops a music video. I think everyone can agree that her visual take on videos is like no other. Lets hope to see more of this in the year.
I loved all her looks from the feathered leather jacket to the studded statement all white ensemble.
My favourite was the military jacket with the text on the back. Heres some visuals from the song. You're welcome !
Peep the video below.
After doing all my budgets and calculations i realised I spent nearly nothing on myself over the last year as most of it went to saving and working on getting a full time job. Thought it was time to spoil myself. Jan is def going to be the month of splurging.

Its well mid way into the year and it felt weird not to log in and blog about the past year and what I wished this year to be.
2016 had the blog on a little hiatus as I stepped into the 'real world' and got my self a 'real job'. I am bit of a workaholic and carry on a few projects on at the same time so when it came to let something go as I started full time work, it was the blog aspect of Everyday Like This (was still on insta of course).
Let me tell you as a creative, working 8 hour days and routines is defiantly not my thing. I am so used to sleepless nights, 3am brainstorms, planning out the next show/shoot/post and the chaos that came with balancing everything with my day jobs.
I think what killed me the most was that I would be so tired from work that I wouldn't even have energy to do anything extra/ creative which I saw over the months affected my overall happiness. Needless to say I am back. Its 1:37am and I have work at 8am haha. Lets hope I make it !
I know in 2016 I set out to explore and talk about diversity more. Its funny I think all the posts I did on racism and diversity over the year actually gave me the strength to call out an incident over the N word used in a derogatory way last week. I surprised myself. I am usually the quiet type who keeps to themselves and I hate confrontation. For me this was huge. I was really proud to see how much self growth had happened and when I reflected back I knew having an outlet on the blog defiantly helped me get to where I am at. By speaking out I saw positive change and if I had never said anything I don't know would of happened.
2017 started with a Bang !!! my Swinburne TVC being on Australian TV and it was all thanks to this little baby right here. Who would of thought 7 years ago starting this blog that my mug would be showcased between Nadal and Monfils match at the Australian Open on Channel 7. Is this real life? I have no idea how we got here but I am forever grateful.
This is the first year I haven't set any goals. I am trying not to over work myself but I am sure I'll add some in here soon.
