“When was the last time you did something for the first time?” – its a pretty huge question, but one that we should ask ourselves more often. Sometimes the largest questions in life can feel a little intimidating, a whole montage of possible answers rushes into your head, and constructing a worthy response can feel almost impossible. But, as I have gotten older, I have learnt to appreciate the act of simplifying – because when it comes down to it, life is simple. Inhale/exhale is what keeps us alive – and so sometimes those large questions, the ones that make us feel comfortable, can be broken down into a series of basic responses. And so, in answer to Eastpak’s new campaign – centred around doing something new for the first time- I took a fun, down-to-earth approach. Ever since I moved to Paris (and ever since I watched Carrie Bradshaw run through Paris in one of her signature voluminous skirts) I wanted to recreate this moment for myself. And so, I took some time out of my day, to do just that, by twirling down my favourite bridge  in a beautiful handmade Crinoline with a beautiful beau on my arm, Jared. And so, “my something for the first time” might seem totally ridiculous to some, it made me happy to finally capture the photographs I have always wanted. And so I’ll end this by urging you all to check out Eastpak’s new campaign (click here) – I hope it inspires you to do something (be it big or small) for the first time. Because even though daily life can be  monotonous at times, we should always strive to constantly add adventure along the way.
