Rose Petals


sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory 
dr. suess

have spent today drifting, daydreaming, and reflecting on how different 2014 and has been to the last three years of my life in a creative arts environment. I have my regrets and my achievements, and my goals in striving to follow my dreams but the one thing I can't understand is time. Can you believe Christmas is in a week? My sister thought I was crazy when I casually said it in a conversation yesterday till she realised I was right. While I have achieved so much in this last year doing something completely new and exciting, I still miss being surrounded by music, having the time to practice, learning mountains of repertoire, and playing pieces I thought I could never pull off! Sigh, time is still ticking.. what are your reflections about 2014? B, xx

P.S Promise these are the last of my music photoshoot photos!

Postcards from Europe

la sagrada familia barcelona spain europe
canals amsterdam netherlands europe
parc guell barcelona spain europe
piazzale michelangelo florence italy europe
red telephone box london england europe
colosseum rome italy europe
scenic stop rhine valley germany europe
spanish steps rome italy europe
vatican city rome italy europe
gondolas venice italy europe
skydiving austrian alps tyrol europe
eiffel tower paris france europe

my sister's idea of a caption:
"i thrw mi hands up in da air symtyms sngng ayooooo"


I'd only ever heard, seen photos and paintings, read books, watched movies and listened to music that was associated with Europe but nothing could have prepared me for seeing things like the streets of Barcelona, the canals of Amsterdam, the beautiful Austrian Alps and Rhine Valley scenery, the Colosseum and Vatican City, the gondolas in Venice, the beautiful little city of Florence, the Eiffel tower in Paris and let's not forget the shopping, gelato and macarons (yes I have a sweet-tooth!) It is so hard not to fall in love with each city I visited had its own special charm. So, if you didn't see my photos on Instagram (@littlebxx) then prepare for quite a few travel posts which is only a fraction of the photographic evidence I have of my trip to Europe. They say a picture is worth a thousand words right? Happy living through my travels. 

Ciao B, xx

Fairy Floss

i love fairy floss and i love paris 

I have a few stories to tell you about my adventures traipsing around Europe. I've travelled around the world since I was four but nothing could have prepared me for visiting a tiny part of the world (have you seen those pictures that pop up everywhere that show a numerous amount of European countries fitting into Western Australia - who would have thought!) and experiencing a world of culture. Coming soon

I can't believe a year ago I made it through my piano recital 'Dancing with Wanderlust' and then received some of the craziest news that would change my life forever. This year has been a year of trying new things, doing everything I love and completing my first year of my masters degree while battling with this thing stronger than me. I can't wait to see what the future holds, but I would love to get littleb off the ground and running. I hope you guys stay around and watch!! 

Love, B xx

Apology

I'm sorry for not posting sooner, it's been a crazy year starting an Early Childhood Education Masters degree, going to Europe (defs posts coming soon), and being really sick for an awfully long amount of time. But I am on the road to recovery, and it's the 1st of October! How time does fly. Enjoy the pre-recital pics, a few catchup posts, then it's Europe story time. But if you can't wait, be sure to check out my pictures on Instagram @littlebxx :)

Enjoy the sunshine, and pretty florals!

I'm so excited to announce it's official (if you haven't already noticed from my instagram pictures @littlebxx) - I have booked my flights to Europe although unfortunately not a one way ticket. I'm so excited and I can't wait to start packing and jetset out of my little Perth.

I have never been to Europe and only truly discovered it 2 years ago but since then I have wanted to go so so so badly. I always knew Europe existed but as silly as this sounds it was just that far out continent that I had no real interest in because I didn't know much about it.

When I was seven I start learning Italian in school and decided I wanted to learn more and take part in the exchange program to Italy when I got to Year 12 (but that didn't happen as I stopped learning Italian when I was 13). Of course, Europe is the foundation of classical music and so I've had about 15 years hearing and learning where composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy, Straus, Haydn, Chopin (the list could go on forever!) come from, died, where they worked, where they travelled, which famous European Kings and Queens they wrote special works for, music written for special locations eg. The Evening in Granada by Debussy or Music for the Royal Fireworks by Handel etc etc etc etc.

So in a nutshell.. I can't believe littleb (ME) will finally get to experience the beautiful European traditions and see buildings which are so old and beautiful and explore a whole new continent altogether. Fingers crossed the time flies till I'm on a plane!! Love B xx
