Jet lag

Sorry for the lack of posts, I've headed to Canada for a bit of a holiday and still getting over the jet lag. I'll still be posting while I'm here though, plus there's still some HM and Mayoress work to do. x

Travel woes

I just called to get my phone put on roaming for the trip.

HM: "Hi, yeah, I'm going to Canada on Saturday and I just need to put my phone on roaming."

Genius: "Mmmm, Canada.... can you just remind me what country that's in?"

HM: "What?"

Genius: "You know, Canada. Is it in the UK or what?"

What the fuck?

Hayley Mei is going on holiday

It's been a while since I've had one, but I'll still be doing some work here and there. While I'm away, your favourite stockists will be picking and choosing bits and pieces from the new range - we'll be in full production when I get back and you'll all have new HM to wear... FINALLY!!!!!!!

Go home and take some downers

It's funny seeing leftovers from the weekend on Sunday afternoons. I arrived at 'Jackpot Sundays' to see a slightly angry little guy interrogating No Name Nathan and Mexi about what the hell they were planning on playing. He was under the impression that early 90's act Itch-e and Scratch-e were back together and doing a gig right there at Section 8.

"Tell me what you're gonna play! Is it gonna make me stay, or should I just go home and take some downers?" Pretty sure this is what he was after. Remember this one?

Kinda reminds me of when I was 17, stayed out all night, wore short skirts, long socks and ponytails. Scary.

Peak Street Magazine - Australia

Excuse my exclamation, but holy shit! This magazine is brilliant AND it's free. I could go on about how there's a little spot featuring Hayley Mei, but the entire mag is worthy of a cover to cover read. Design is will make your eyes happy. Get your hands on it.

Check it --> Peak Street.

Inst V Burn

Brand new tee, a la Burn Crew and Inst. Clothing. Sure, it's for boys, but I can get busy with the sewing machine.

Dear world,

Does anyone want to put on more un-missable shows when I'm not in town?

Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings - Melbourne Hi Fi Bar

Tuesday 26th Feb
Wednesday 27th Feb - with C.W. Stoneking support. He's incredible
Thursday 28th Feb

Safe to say that most of those dates have sold out.

The Venice Collective - Vancouver

Sneaker Pimps - Vancouver

Sneaker Pimps have been throwing the best parties in the best cities and now it's Vancouver's turn. Damn! Biz Markie.... I miss out on this one by two days. TWO DAYS!

Sunday snacks

Jackpot Sundays at Section 8 mean that you get to choose from anything in the city to eat. I chose everything. Dumplings from next door, Gyoza from Yoyogi, F7 from Yoyogi (try it) x2, Chips and too many of the 'Hayley Mei special' martini's.

Don't forget you can join the feasting next Sunday from 3pm.

Hot shit. It's official.

NYC based women's wear label MOB have just released their spring campaign. It features that little minx - Uffie (I bet she hates being called a minx, but I mean it in the nicest way), framed by hotshot photographer Mark the Cobrasnake.

The new line also includes a MOB x Fafi collaboration and a little something special, the Boot Camp jacket. Wear it and rep the MOB army.

Get your credit card ready and see for yourself.

Ready to Uff?.

They say it will be safe to swim, but if they start dredging near my beach and dumping toxic whatever in the bay, I don't think that's enough assurance for me to hop in.

Took a little time out this afternoon to enjoy the beach...

Word is tonight, that they're starting down at Rosebud so still might have a while yet. I'll be heading to the beach a little more often until they start at the Yarra.

Coming to a suburb near you

The Hamax.

In Melbourne soon.

Rooftop Bar - Melbourne

Curtin House - 252 Swanston St, Melbourne. Probably the coolest building in the city (also housing Cookie, Toff in Town and some shopping you can't afford to miss). Sorry if that sounded like a review, it's not.

Headed up to the Rooftop Bar for the first time last night. Sure, there are a few rooftop's around the city that you can get a drink at, but I think this one beats them all. Plus you don't need to be wearing a suit to get in.

Take the elevator, it's worth waiting for unless you need some exercise.

E is for Emily

Repping the Alphabetter

See how much you're worth

Check out the guide here!

Now I feel guilty for running my poor Jordan's into the ground. Always thought it would be easy just to grab another pair. Yep... not gonna happen.

'Lads Day' boys causing trouble

Don't touch the records, it ain't cute

But these notes that you left for the boys were hilarious:

Craig wins with this one:

Food is close by if you get hungry. Andy got hungry

Crackhead. Ha.

Not sure if these are up as a warning, or encouragement

Always something interesting to read in the Section 8 toilets
