Take a trip down memory lane to 1993- when Bjork released her first album, Debut. Watch her bizarre video for Venus as a Boy, and marvel at a young Bjork in all her egg-cooking glory. She was so weird and gorgeous!

Its that time of year again, when we can frolic in the beautiful Byron Bay hinterlands and listen to an array of heart-wrenchingly good live musical acts. Splendour in the Grass is this weekend, and I managed to score myself a ticket. Watch this space for a special Splendour blog!
I’ll be seeing Jack White, Explosions in the Sky, Smashing Pumpkins, Azealia Banks, The Shins, Bloc Party, Lana Del Rey, Tame Impala, Metric, Mudhoney, Spiderbait, Seekae, Bleeding Knees Club, Pond, and Father John Misty, plus many more who I’m not so familiar with. I cannot wait!

Apologies for the lack of posts! There has been sickness floating around the Tilly office, limiting us to days spent in bed sleeping and trying to recover!
Now that we are on the mend, let us introduce you to Madison Stewart. She’s a 18 year old Australian girl who is a passionate and dedicated sea conservationist. She is nicknamed “Shark-Girl” because of her total love and admiration for sharks:
Sharks are a worst-nightmare to many, but to Madison, they are gentle, beautiful creatures who are under serious attack and threat of extinction. Check out Madison’s video to learn more- it is so beautiful and interesting, and will most definitely bring a tear to your eye.
“Trusting sharks is very easy, because they are very predictable. They are potentially dangerous creatures, but so are dogs, its just all about knowing the movements, knowing to pick up when they are angry etc. I’ve filmed people hand feeding tiger sharks, hugging sharks, it really only takes a small while to understand their movements, its like playing tug of war with your puppy, only the puppy is really big!” – Madison Stewart, via SurfSister.

On misty, freezing cold mornings like this, when I have to wrap myself in layers of wool just to feel normal, I can’t help but daydream of summer. Or spring. In fact, on the 1st of September, I will be building myself one of these…
While sipping on these berry infused liquours…
Seriously amazing. Learn how to spike your fruit here.

What is it about having a glimpse into people’s homes that is so deeply fulfilling? Whether it is an open for inspection, an actual invitation or just a peek over a fence, there is no denying the pleasure that comes from a sneak peek into someone else’s abode. Enter Vauxlair, an online publication based out of Sydney that allows for these slightly voyeuristic urges to be satisfied. The man behind the lens takes photos of friend’s (and friends of friends’) homes, and artfully publishes them online for the world to see. The homes are always beautiful, eclectic representations of the owner’s personal space. The popularity of Vauxlair makes clear just how interesting it is for us to take a look into someone else’s life… Below are some images from the blog, taken from the home of Christian and Kia, in Sydney’s beachside suburb of Newport.
I love how the cats make several appearances. A necessary addition to any home!
Visit Vauxlair for more beautiful snapshots of beautiful homes.

Everyone- download the iPhone app called Geocaching! It is the coolest piece of technology I’ve stumbled across in a while. Basically, it offers you access to a worldwide treasure hunt (yes, I’m aware this sounds nerdy, but read on). The idea is relatively simple- it uses GPS to track your location and offer you a map of your local area. Since 2003, people have been hiding caches in streets, alleyways and parks and buildings around the world. A cache is usually a little collection of items, like a mini-treasure box, that you have access to once you have located and tracked it down. The app gives you clues and riddles that you have to solve in order to find the treasure. Sounds a little childish, I know, but trust me, treasure hunts are not longer just for kids. This is an adults only, world-wide search. You will be totally delighted once you find your first cache. It is an absolute hoot! Check out this map of Sydney to get started (the little box icons represent hidden caches), then download the app. Yeeeaahh.
I found one hidden behind a huge street sign on the City-West link on the weekend!
