Beach Afternoon





I took these shots about two weeks ago when me and Yulia got home after a day in the city. We felt like going down to the beach just to relax and reap the benefits of living so close to Bondi! I've been here for four weeks and it still hasn't set in that I'm living in one of the most coveted places in Sydney. I do remember it being super cold and windy though. But with this weather, who cares? It's raining and sad in Sydney at the moment but this week is set to be sunny so get ready for some fresher photos! I have finally got around to getting some posts ready for this week. I took a lot of shots the first few weeks that I haven't blogged yet. I've been too lazy to carry my camera around lately, especially with the bad weather. I am still loving my time in Sydney with lots of work and castings. I'm dying to tell everyone about the shoots I've been doing but have to keep my mouth shut for now. One of my shoots have come out so I'll post that tomorrow. I had an awesome shoot with Marie Claire on Thursday and Friday (they posted us on Instagram so presume I can tell you guys haha) and met this really cool kiwi model called Sophie. Modelling is a crazy industry that I can never wrap my head around but I love that you meet all of these interesting people by being chucked together for a day or two.

P.s. I am much better at posting on Instagram (@radasbro) and am currently uploading photo's to my Tumblr (radasbro.tumblr.com). Follow them for more regular updates.

Mundane Monday








I've finally found my feet here in Sydney so expect way more posts. Last week was good with some work and lots of castings. I had a really good weekend with fab weather. Went out with my flatmates on Friday night which was totes cool. Saturday we went to a market with malt wine, got sushi and went to a nice pub in Rose Bay before finishing the night with movies at home, #partyinghard haha. On Sunday me and Yulia dropped by the Bondi Beach Sunday Market on our way to the wharf. I picked up this awesome sterling silver skull ring. I'm slowly building up my ring collection after they were all stolen when my house in NZ got burgled. We walked to the Opera House where Yulia got souvenirs  and then bused back home. We also stopped to have lunch in the Botanical gardens which was really cool! We ended up walking about 14km and were shattered. So worth it though. We recuperated at home before walking to the beach to watch the sun go down. I'll upload some of those photo's tomorrow. I also spoiled myself with this great little navy Michael Kors bag last week. I had nothing on today, just got some grocery's, took these photo's and worked on Rad a little.

Milse





These photo's are from the Sunday before I left. Me and Ollie came back on the ferry and met two of our best friends, my mum and my sister at this cool little dessert boutique in Britomart called Milse's. It's very cramped and small so I don't recommend going in there with large bags like we did haha. It's really yummy but their cakes are more cream than sponge which I don't like. I recommend their gelato sticks. It was really lovely seeing some of my fav people before I left. A little bit sad too. Sunday night was filled with Ollie and Ant helping/packing my bags for me ;). It's crazy trying to pack up your life in a suitcase. I even paid for two cases and a carry on, and still left things behind! Oops... The move has been really cool. I've been super busy with castings and work which is great. Sydney is so expensive though! Especially when you move out of home and have to pay for a lot of things you took for granted such as cooking oil (even though I've been using Yulia's). I'm still setting up the business over here but things should be up and running in no time!

P.S. I seriously love the top picture because you can see my mum and sister waiting for me, as usual, and one of my best friends attempting a photo bomb haha.

Waiheke Weekend













The weekend before I moved to Sydney I spent an amazing weekend at my best friends mum's house on Waiheke Island. Waiheke is about a 45 minute ferry ride out of Auckland. It is seriously beautiful and surprisingly we had amazing weather while Auckland was raining. These photo's are from the first day. My best friend, Ollie, flew up from her drama school in Wellington so it was an amazing way to spend my last few days. Glassons gave me this hilarious 'Glersace' t-shirt and I misplaced it for a few days so this was my first chance to wear it. Black tee's are the best. Especially when they're almost Versace ;). I'm pressed for time but have loads of posts coming, including updates about Sydney, so hang tight.

Sydney Sunset



I'm finally in Sydney! It's so amazing and so intense. I had to get up at 4am NZ time to get a 7am flight, so yesterday was a long day. I got to Sydney at 8.30 Sydney time and was picked up by the owner of my Australian agency Chic, he's also called Dominique which is cool. I'm living in an amazing apartment in Bondi  Beach with another model from the Ukraine and the guy who owns it. I'm loving it; the other model is so lovely and the guy who owns it likes Game of Thrones which obviously means he's cool haha. I had half an hour to get settled before I was picked up by Chic's driver and taken to the agency to meet everyone. Next I was driven to three castings, a job in the afternoon, set up with a phone card and travel card. It was great, I was learnt loads about the city and am feeling pretty good about being here. My job finished at 5pm so I didn't get back to the apartment til it was dark. I took some photo's of the sunset as we finished the job. I went for a night time stroll around Bondi and found some dinner. And that was my first day haha.

P.s. Some cool posts coming from my last week in Auckland too!
