I was so incredibly excited to receive an email from the wonderful Billabong Girls Australia wanting to collaborate. I was so excited i was on the edge of my seat and nearly in tears haha- it just means so much to me that i am inspiring others and people are enjoying everything i do. That is all i want and it is so rewarding to be on the journey with brands like Billabong. I recieved some beautiful pieces that will be featuring in an upcoming shoot and i think they will be worn out through summer. They couldn't have picked better pieces for me- so A BIG THANK YOU to Billabong girls :D

Here is my little parcel of goodies ft the CLEO + Billabong range.

Here is photos from their amazing lookbook- you can purchase your own pieces at:

While researching through Billabong Australia website i came across these gorgeous illustrations by surfer Felicity Palmateer.
 I just  love all the colours used in them, reminds me of the sun setting on the water.
I am a big fan of watercolours myself so this really inspired me so start trying them out again. The use of whales too is so beautiful. I just love these and had to share them with you.
you can check out a insightful interview with her about her creations, how she makes them and also a link to her inspiring story growing up surfing HERE.

I hope this has inspired you a little, i know i have been daydreaming about a holiday away after this post hehe.

lots of love,
Leana xxxx
