The star studded line up was topped when Muse were announced to be headlining. One of my favourite bands of all time, not to mention the likes of Powderfinger, Lily Allen, The Temper Trap, Dizzee Rascal and Girl Talk. But then the forecasts were predicted to be an insanely hot, 40 degrees in the west, and as usual, Big Day Out is in the western suburbs. So Anna, Jono, Kenny, Shaun, Scott and I sweltered in the unbearable heat. On a couple of occassions Anna and I had to call it quits due to the intensity of the sun. But overall, THE DAY WAS FREAKIN HUGE!

I was venturing around the shops yesterday with a friend and I stumbled upon the Siren boots featured in the above set. I. Fell. In. Love. The small details which cover the boots give it a modern effect with a "bad girl" connotation . I teamed them up with a cat claw singlet as well as basic studded shorts. In order to complete the "bad girl" look, I accessorised with black basic jewellery and a leather jacket.
I love Doc Martens, so when I saw these on Polyvore I felt my heart melt a little inside. I thought I'd continue this "biker" look by teaming them up with some frayed shorts and a basic wool side top. To finish this casual look I didn't want to overload it with accessories so I stuck to basic biker-esque bracelets and a black necklace to add dimension to the top half of the outfit.

I didn't think I'd even make it through my first year of school. But you held my hand through Orientation, helped me make my Easter hat for the annual MPPS Parade, walked me to After School Care every single afternoon, helping me back up when I had fallen down on the concrete and you were my big sister. Overcoming the tradegy three years ago was beyond me. I was adamant in believing that there was absolutely nothing in the world that would make me forget and stop hurting.
The truth is, I am still hurting and I haven't forgotten. But I survived and althought you're not here, I have to thank you for helping me survive the past three years. Without you, and your 13 years of wise words, I wouldn't have made it. I would have quit a long time ago.
You always made a difference. You always will make a difference.
I used to ask myself why did it have to be you. But it is selfish of me to wish it upon anyone else. I wouldn't want their friends and family to be suffering the pain that I and many others have. I think when you left, you left a little selflessness behind, that we all picked up and adopted.
I miss you so much. And I love you so much more. Please stay safe in your happy place. I hope you like the flowers the girls and I scattered around for you.

I am only the way that I am today because of you. I have come to a point in my life where I am no longer sorry for being a bitch to you and to her.
