"It's Never Good Bye Only Hello"
What a year, I think everyone knows that!!! When I published the second issue of LaMode, The Second Coming, I wrote in my editor’s note that if you are put into a negative situation, you should try and gain something positive from it.
I think this year has not been any exception?? It has been dam hard for some of us and with Melbourne going into stage 4 lock down that ended up being drawn out for 4 months, I am sure that would of had an effect on a lot of people. Not being able to leave the house after 8pm and only being able too exercise for an hour a day, that was only a couple of things that Melbourne wasn’t able to do during that period.
But on the flip side of things working from home and applying new skills that you may of learnt whilst you are in lock down would have had a positive effect on not only the ones who used their time wisely, but taking something from there time in lock down.
I hope you all achieved something that was on a positive note this year. I know I had my ups and downs and you would of as well, but to gain something up lifting from 2020 would of been a bonus or gain, meaning that you would of learnt something about yourself or made a stepping stone towards creating something bigger and better. I am always one to make a plan so I can make things happen and develop into whatever I am working on into something bigger and better.
Enjoy “It’s never good bye only hello”

Kiss me Gently
How strange is the world we live in now? With Covid-19 impacting on us, we seem to have developed a little more time to gain new skills and learn new things. Some parts of the world have gone back into lock down while other parts of the world namingly, Australia have managed to control the outbreak and we are now living in a land where we can roam freely and do what we please, well just about ( we still have social distancing ) but coming back to the subject of having more time on our hands so we can do more stuff. The point I am making is, learning new skills. And I wonder how many people did that while they were in lock down? I know I did, I definitely used my time wisely so I was able to fine tune my creative skills that are required to create video’s and design publications like LaMode’s first and second issue’s. I have LaMode’s third issue in the works which should be coming out mid-January, so stay tuned for that.
But till then you can enjoy the motion video of “Kiss me Gently’ and two fore coming swim editorials and videos from LaMode in the coming weeks.
