An “Extra-Ordinary” Weekend.

Weekend just gone I took the epically long drive to Perth, to see my sister Sophie perform in a musical “Extra Ordinary People”. Based around a group of concerned citizens who protest the effects of Superheros on their city.

It was the first time in my 8 years of having a license that I drove by myself. For someone who has an irrational fear of driving in Capital Cities, I found I was rather composed. Tick that off the bucket list.

I arrived in Perth at about Midday and was promptly whisked off to Little Creatures Brewery for Lunch with Soph’s cast-mates.

Pipsqueak Cider and a demolished bowl of frits.

After lunch we headed back home and got ready to go to the Theatre. As I had made the trip by myself, the Director, Scott allowed me backstage until the show started. Of course, I couldn’t help but take a few snaps.

Much Drama Nerd.

It wouldn’t be my blog without something beauty related.

The show was exceptionally entertaining and funny. There was not one character I felt was unauthentic or not played to perfection. The chorus was incredibly strong, something that most people tend to overlook, but is one of the most integral parts of a successful Musical. The set was simplistic, yet effective and the songs were perfectly tailored. Director Scott McArdle should be commended on delivering an engaging show. Especially for the fact he not only directed, but wrote and lyrically scored the entire thing. Extremely exceptional.

Sophie was brilliant. She has an exceptional singing voice, it is very unique. Her character, Frankie, was an emotional catalyst for the entire show and she played her perfectly. I was so incredibly proud.

I then drove the long road back home the following day, having to be back for a rehearsal for my own show, that opens this weekend. The trip was made a lot easier by finding my old iPod, which I managed to charge up and listened to the entire way back. All the nostalgia.

What did you get up to over the Weekend?

OOTD- Kalgoorlie Cup.

Saturday just gone hosted the Kalgoorlie cup- the biggest and last event of our yearly race round.

Although Hannan’s Handicap hosts the fashions on the field, I feel Kalgoorlie cup is the event where people pull out the edgier outfit. Well, I know that is what I did.

Again, I dropped the ball and didn’t take as many photos as I wished I had. Therefor, I have scrounged together a few snaps from other people (sorry Bec!) to compile this post.

My dress is ASOS Salon, the headpiece I made myself with some silk abaca and some Lady Amherst feathers. I also added some beading using the extra beads/sequins that came with my dress (the lower half was headed around the flowers). My shoes were Mollini and although, not pictured my bag was Amorni. The champagne pictured is Chandon (FYI) and the lovely lady pictured is my Best Friend Kendal (her outfit was exclusively from Bardot).

I didn’t win any money at all on my bets, to the point where I cut my losses and stopped betting altogether!

After the races we capped off the evening with a few drinks at one of the local pubs. Which was so packed we could barely move. I then went back to a friends and watched Cruel Intentions (an obscure but excellent movie choice)
