So I’ve taken the plunge and signed up for a 30 day Bikram Yoga challenge. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you probably would have noticed that I’m a Bikram fan. I’ve been practicing on and off for about 4 years now, always flirting with the idea of committing to the hot room for a solid month. But social life and other commitments got in the way (aka excuses) but this year I’m in. And to make matters worse, I’ve boasted to pretty much everyone I know that I’ve signed up for 3o classes in 30 days so if I fail, everyone is going to know about it. Motivation? Yes!
Because of this huge commitment The Kids Are In Trouble may be a little quiet over the next 30 days. I suspect when I’m not in class I’ll be huddled up in a corner weeping… or some other kind of dramatic overreaction. I will check in weekly to keep you updated on my progress though, and you can hit me up on Twitter or Instagram for more frequent updates.

I picked up this vintage lace peplum top from the Neon Pony pop-up store a few days ago. You can check them out at the Laneway Night Markets in Northbridge tonight. And these Nobody Cult Skinny High Rise Jeans are the perfect fit for me. Must acquire in every colour.
Top: Vintage from Neon Pony
Jeans: Nobody similar here and here
Cuff: from Ginger Owl
Watch: Michael Kors

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.” – Martha Graham
Leather is without doubt my favourite fabric, so you can imagine how my heart skipped a beat when I saw this amazing Quilted Leather Vest by Josh Goot. You can pre-order yours through Green With Envy by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or if you can’t quite justify the $1,245 price tag, Aussie label Winston Wolfe has a gorgeous version with a much smaller price tag – The Goddamn leather vest, $390.00.
Hello world, hello 2013. I’ve been a little bit absent lately but with good reason. I’ve given this blog a makeover – a new name and a new look and I couldn’t be happier with the result (Thank you J, for all your help and for listening to my constant whinging!)
The new name, The Kids Are In Trouble, is taken from the opening line of The National’s Conversation 16, from the album High Violet. An album that I’ve fallen head over heels in love with. I won’t go into the reasons behind the change too much except to say that the new name and minimalist look resonate with me much more than The Perfect Symmetry ever did.
So here’s to a new year and a new start.
