February Inspo Boards & Playlist

In weeks like this, when I'm thinking solely in colours and disconnected ideas - scribbles and mood boards are the only way I can organise my feelings. Set to a backdrop of the strangest assortment of music, this is February; marked by soupy days and drizzling rain.

I split my time between school, the beach, and the shops. These days are hazy, dazed messes of salt, chaotic hair and lined paper. The world looks like it's behind a bluey pink filter. I can't tell you what we revised in maths methods last week, but I can recite the poetry I've been immersed in and tell you the number of sandy steps between the jetty and the beach-side cafe.

Right now I'm obsessed with irridescent blues, peachy caramels and forest greens. Pink is popping up everywhere around me - my room, my wardrobe, my art. I'm gravitating towards stripes and tan lines, see through long sleeves, mid-thigh cuts, plunging necklines and no bras. Glitter and gloss substitue eyeshadow, my hair is permanently salty, and large crazy earrings dress everything up.

I’d like to say I have a soft, moody, head-in-the-clouds playlist for you all – but February’s a mess. This month, I’m a mess. And my music taste is everywhere. There’s no other way to describe this current soundtrack.

An update: I recently bought a disposable camera, my dad gave me a film camera, and I found a couple of rolls of film. This all means there's some super exciting stuff coming to Seafoam - I'm eager to share more excerpts of my life with all of you, through something as intimate and candid as film.

And February - you're a dream.
