I can’t believe we are now just ONE WEEK away from the Miss Pinup Australia National Grand Final!
This time next week I will be freezing my toosh off in Melbourne time and full to the brim with excitement and nervous butterflies.
I am FINALLY beginning to feel ready as I tick the last few things off my list and begin to really look forward to the event and the days beforehand!
As per usual, things have been eventful as of late. I’ve been planning and leading some intense training at work and have been on a made hunt to try and find a new housemate after my current one bomb-dropped a two weeks’ notice departure.
One thing I am beginning to realise is that I actually am a fairly resilient person. I look back at some of the things that have taken place in my life (in the past 12 months in particular) and can genuinely say that I am pretty damn proud of myself for the manner in which I have handled some of these things.
I am reminded of this by those closest to me: special mention to family, my close Alex, Elly, Evie and Gen and my amazing boyfriend Dave for always being there to remind me of this on those days where my mind is telling me otherwise!
Now, onto what I’ll be getting up to down in Melbourne.
I will be arriving bright and early on the morning of Thursday July 23.
My flight leaves Brisbane just after 6:30AM…so I’m reaaaaaally excited about getting up at around 3AM. Lucky I’m a morning person who loves coffee!
Thursday will be our first day of rehearsals learning our awesome opening number. The wonderful Miss Pixie has been hard at fashioning handmade headpieces for every finalists and I can’t wait to see her creations! I am also really excited to learn the opening number…not to mention meeting ALL THE GRAND FINALISTS! I feel like I know them all already, but it will be nice to actually physically meet them all.
On the Thursday evening, the lovely Miss Cherry Fizz (Miss Pinup Australia 2014) has been so thoughtful as to arrange a dinner for us all to meet/hangout/chin wag after our first day of rehearsals. I can’t wait to meet the woman herself! One excited pinup right here!
Friday is rehearsal fun take two, followed by the official Meet & Greet at Aloha Sailor. Hopefully a cocktail (or a mocktail in my case) or two will ease the nerves ahead of the big night on Saturday night. My gorgeous man also arrives on Friday night so it’s just one exciting thing after another!
I’m not sure what the proceedings will be on Saturday, but needless to say, anything I do, I will likely be doing in a wet set. Stylin’.
I cannot even begin to express how excited I am to spend Saturday night with a bunch of inspiring and amazing individuals who have all worked so hard in the lead up to the big night. It’s likely I won’t get to see much of their actual performances (always the only sad part about actually being a contestant) but I’m excited for costume sneaky peeks in the dressing room at least!
Tomorrow Dave and I will be attempting to successfully fit all my props into my luggage…I hope he’s good at Tetris, cause I know I ain’t!
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line and ask! I don’t bite!
Enjoy your weekend lovelies!
