Livy

During the course of your life, you meet endless amounts of people. Humans come and go, they leave footprints in your heart, the ones that truly matter. Just because someone leaves doesn't mean that you didn't love them, or that your friendship wasn't real. It's just the fact that people change, and circumstances make it that they aren't a part of your life anymore, and thats okay.

There are only a couple of people in this lifetime, that you meet and after a while, you can depend on them for anything. They know you inside out, accept you. Friends give us the courage to lift the blinds off our hearts. To open up and show what we generally keep hidden from the rest of the world.

There's this one girl that I know. Her name is Livy. You guys might have heard of her before. She's a person that I would like to talk about at this moment. If you don't know her, here are some facts about her.

Livy's the type of person that has a song on her mind. She can pick up a guitar or sit herself down at a piano and it's baffling because she can play anything and make it sound good. Livy's seen me at my best and my worst, and my weirdest. She's the most genuine person I've met in a lifetime. It doesn't necessarily mean she is the closest, or my most favourite person in the world - because to be frank, I don't have one. But our friendship doesn't have to be measured. She's a person that I can rely on, or to just have a heart-to-heart with. She's brave, balanced and kind. There's something about her presence that never makes me feel tired, and when I'm over everything and want to be alone, I can be alone with her.

If you know me, you'll know that, I, Indy, HATE explaining things. I don't feel the need to justify my actions every second of the day, because trust me when i say I do that a lot. Livy knows when to give me space, or when to give me love and understanding. She doesn't try to shove advice down my throat, but lets me paint the melancholy feelings of my words and my worlds, so that she too can understand the way my starry eyes comprehend.

You probably don't understand why I am rambling about a particular girl. But it baffles me, that the world walks past her and doesn't stop to get a second glance. I truly believe that she has every quality that somebody should have. I know we all have flaws, after all every single one of us are human. I don't believe in the idea of perfection. But I do believe that after everything I've done, or said, or felt, my sponge can just soak it in for me and squeeze it out so that I can breathe. She does that.

She is the bravest person I know. She doesn't ever make a drama, and she sheds tears a lot because she has a heart that loves when there isn't love to be had. Sometimes I worry that she gives so much love away, that she never has any love for herself.

Liv has this way with you. She's gentle and yet so fiery with her friendships, she fiercely loves and never expects to be noticed with her actions or when she does something for something else. She never says, what is in it for me? What do I get out of this? She's like a breath of fresh air. People's opinions don't matter to her, but then again she doesn't want someone to think she is a bad person.

One of my favourite things about this chica is that theres never a dull day with her. Dress down, dress up, go out, stay at home. Everything is always new and different, and relaxing. She's the type of person you want your kid to be, you want your best friend to be, your sister, your mother, or your partner. She has the whole package.

Livy, looks past at the things that I do, and the mistakes I make with a loving heart. She never forces me to do something that would hurt me. She always knows how to approach things and how to be something, or how to do something I didn't know. Her laugh is contagious and she has the best sense of mind.

I just wanted to acknowledge her goodness in the world, and even though she is only one person, I truly think that she could change the world in a heartbeat. She makes me feel like a somebody. She makes me feel and see the good parts about myself. She's been through a lot and she's been there for and with me. Thank you, my angel.

This is her, by the way.




One thing I can say, is that NEVER treat people like Livy, badly - intentionally. Hurting someone, that has only ever loved you, shows more of the person that you are, then they are. Your actions speak louder than words, and they might forget the words you spoke to them out of spite, but they will NEVER forget the way you made them feel.

Positive thoughts,
Indy x x x

Missed me?

I haven't posted in a while. It's been about a month and I've had nothing to say. I've experienced the dramatics of life and how friendships falter and get stronger, how consequences outbreak, and many other things. But I want you to know one thing. I don't want you to give up on this blog. This means everything to me, and how you guys - just view this blog once in a while and you care about what I have to say, well it's a+

Ups and and downs

I've kind of lost my blogging voice for the moment. I don't like rambling on about shit that people don't necessarily need to hear.

Falling Fashion

It is finally autumn in New Zealand! The time where I can wear skirts and scarves, jerseys and the cutest cardigans that were too hot to bear in the summer. Although I will miss the sunny days, I love the scream of the wind and the pass of the leaves as they fall through the air.

Here is some fashion choices that I have carefully picked out; not just full outfits but also accessories galore.


This is a cute little dress with a comfy white trench coat pulled over. The shoes pull it off.




Even though this isn't the kind of stuff that I normally would wear, I think that Taylor always seems to pull off a chic, girl next door kind of look.



These rings are always the way to go - I feel like a ring shapes your outfit.


There is nothing like a beautiful bag. This white bag could easily go with any outfit.


Looks like some type of bondage lingerie, but this is actually really in season at the moment. They are comfy and make you feel a sense of pride because as a girl - we should feel prettier.


I love the look of pail nail polish and midi rings.


All black is very cute - with the rolled up sleeves and slip on of ankle boots.



These flowery docs would look good with a cute skirt.


The perfect wardrobe - I like the look of it's minimalistic~ness.


Even though this is more of a summer wear, each of these plain colours wouldn't look good together, but they would look classy with different pairs of clothing. Preferably darkish.


The oversized jumper and scarf really bring out the fall look.


I love her high waisted jeans - and Candice is just standing there rockin' it.


This type of nail colour is a cute one.




Everyone should have a wallet like this. You can get good ones from Kate Spade.


I love the naiveness that the blonde hair gives her face.


This would be too cold to wear out - but more of a cute lazy day or you could wear this with some sort of big cardigan.


I think that long nails always look better - trust me, I have short ones.


You would have to be quite brave to wear this, but it's awfully adorable.









This seems a bit cold - but because autumn is going to be completely filled with jeans, she is going for gold.


perfect outfit.


This kind of accessory looks amazing. Watches rule.




Everybody needs a mac lipstick.




Winged eyeliner for the win.


I LOVE Elle Fanning's fashion. She is my age and really making a statement with it all.

I hope you all can see the fashion that I am looking towards! How I find loads of my clothing is mixing and matching. A scarf from any outlet store. Any type of jumper that I like from op-shops, go look in your friend's throw out pile if they are having a spring clean - or even your mum//dad's wardrobe. You can find some really cool stuff if you look closely. I tend to never have enough money, so mixing and matching is always the way to go.

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."

Airplane Realisations

It's 4.50 am and I am staring out the window of a pane. My body is screaming out to me to go to sleep and I have just about tried every position but my heart's telling me not to fall asleep. I have realised something. I could not give two shits about what part of America I'm going to, let alone any part of the world but I feel so free and wonderful - even though I'm stuck in this tiny little seat in a rickety plane, I am eager to get there. It's established that I don't sleep on planes. Like ever. Aside from the fact that I am feeling severely claustrophobic, I just keep staring out into the beautiful Los Angeles sun, everything is just as I imagined it.

This was a little excerpt from my LA journal - on the way to Lax airport at the start of this year.

Questions and Answers

I never know what you guys all want to see, so for once I decided to do something a little lighter, a little questions and answers so you could understand a little bit about me.


Mmm, I don't really shop that much. I use a lot of my siblings clothes, and I op-shop ALL the time.


Here is a little bit of trendy things I like in fashion. 









Totally the 80's, living and loving Carrie Bradshaw's days, any 80's movie and Lets Dance by David Bowie.



I haven't figured anything out in my life yet, the courses I want to take at school, my future job - let alone where I want to live. I want to live somewhere in the clicheness of the busy city, New York, Paris, London, or somewhere in Rome. Maybe a gap year of travelling???




I don't actually want to get this tattoo - but to me it represents the biggest feeling in my life, individuality.


I love this. Imagine, travelling in a caravan with your boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend, or whoever and you have no cares or sorrows.


I love the notion of this messy room.



Urban glow of the metro.


My mum took this photo, it's blurry because it's night but its the oh so beautiful Arc de Triomphe.





At the moment, I have a lot of songs on my playlist. I don't listen to that many artists whole albums but more singles.

Big Sean - Beware
Kanye West - Blame Game
Broods - Bridges
Beyonce - Blue
Cody Simpson - Summertime of Our Lives
Jeni - Trap Love
Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition
Sia - Elastic Heart
BEYONCE - YONCE AND PARTITION
Mapei - Don't Wait (Kingdom Remix)

WELL, there are a couple albums I'm in love with right now. Always will be Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and Beyonce's new album.



It will always be writing. I could write music for other people and then we get a combination.



There's nothing to it. No one should care // have a say in who you love. If you love them, then that's it. Who gives a SHIT about if they have different body parts.


I would live where i live now. It's a lovely place to grow up in and I have people I'm blessed to include in my life.


Haven't really been to many places in my life, only La for five days and Fiji. So 3rd on Promenade with my friend Jillian in La.


I don't really care if New Zealand is forgotten because somehow we are always catching up to the latest gossip, and in a way there isn't that much publicity here, like not as bad as America. Everything is chilled out and people are just grand. Sometimes snobby, but homely.


I was reading a book on this the other day, where this girl has to give up all wifi and social media when she travels to this island for a year, and she is completely isolated from people. No I wouldn't, because I enjoy it, and I actually learn a lot from it.


Already answered. ^^


About a year and a half ago, I need to do it regularly. It's my stress release.


TO be a poet.

I really wanted to do a youtube channel! But I'm a bit too scared to do it!



Hey look it's my cover image!



I blog on the spot, because whatever comes to me. But I always know the title of what I'm going to post, so then it comes to me. I spend at least three hours editing before I post something.

I don't hate much, just sometimes people's behaviour. If something annoys me at that time, I'll probably have already tweeted about it. 

When teachers let you out when theres 0.3452415 seconds left. A bell means that we can leave, doesn't it?


Blog for yourself. Keep a direct message of what you want to post in each blog post, and you will be fine. Never back down from what you've written - if you're proud of it.
