Dear River Phoenix,

Dear River Phoenix,
I remember the first time I saw you. A cigarette half in your mouth, cheekbones carved for days and that close cropped mousy blonde hair.
Stand By Me was beautiful. But it was more than that- I fell in love with you.

I remember looking you up online and found all these pictures of you, some from Stand By Me, some from your other films. You were young, vulnerable yet tough at the same time. And then I saw that you'd died.
You were twenty three.
I think my heart skipped a beat, maybe  the world stopped for a second.

Whenever I watch your films, your interviews, there's an energy like I've never felt before.
I never met you, but I want to pull you out of the screen and talk with you for a while.
Nothing else. Just talk. About anything and everything.

You've been gone for as long as you were on this earth.
I turned twenty three last month. The same age as you will always be.
You were a boy. A boy who never got the chance to show the world everything else you had to offer.
I remember finding out that you'd died. That was the moment I realised what could happen to innocence.

I don't believe your death was fate, or karma, or destiny. Whatever you want to call it.
I believe it was a fluke, a mistake, a glitch. Something terrible that should never have happened.

I've learned so much about living because of you.
You were a beautiful soul, a work of art. Gentle and kind. Loving and caring.
Forever twenty three.
Thank you for everything.

We Need To Talk About... Margot Robbie

We need to talk about Margot Robbie.
I am ridiculously in love with her right now. A cool Aussie, chick who is hilarious and has excellent fashion sense. 
Margot's become pretty famous since her roles in Wolf of Wall Street, and Suicide Squad, but I'm here to talk about her style.
Boho, hippie, comfy and casual yet very girly. What's not to love?! In particular, I LOVE the black playsuit/ pink kimono out fit in the second set. 
Her outfits appear effortless yet she always looks incredible. Like the first photo of her at Brisbane airport, so simple and comfy but super stylish.

I think the whole world is getting major girl crush vibes right now.
Much Love.

P.S- None of the photos are mine but I have edited them.
I have credited where I found each photo but am unsure as to who the original photographers are.
If you know, please contact me so I give credit where necessary.

Review | My Little Box October 2016

"Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today. I want to be apart of it, New York, New York!"

Across the pond lies the fabulous getaway, New York. Manhattan gets all the attention, but let's be honest, the real magic lies within Brooklyn.
Filled with charming cafes, indie boutiques, artisanal coffee shops and that famous red brick walls. Just add in their creative, cool hipsters and you it's easy to tell why My Little Box has grown rather fond of Brooklyn. So fond in fact, they've dedicated October's box to them!
