Wanderlust (wan-der-lust). n. A very strong or irresistable impulse to travel.

This definition is just about right, except for the part where they forgot to attach my picture next to it. That's right folks, I have been bitten by the travel bug and there ain't no cure. Some of the symptoms (as I am told by highly trained experts) are: endless hours of googling exotic travel destinations, constant visits to airline websites and the occasional bank balance check, which is promptly followed by a good-hearty sob. The following 'slideshow' if you will, is a result of these symptoms. Before you scroll down you may want to consider what you're getting yourself into. 

I, Megan Carrie, will not be held responsible for any travel-bug symptoms that occur hereafter .

For the past few months I've had my eye on a particular blog - shooting glances at it from across the room, batting my eyelashes and flicking my hair from behind the screen of my laptop. It seems I've formed somewhat of a blog crush. So, I thought it a good time to confess my undying love for What My Boyfriend Wore. There, I said it. Now that it's public knowledge I guess I should tell you a bit more about the object of my blog-affection. The genius behind it all is Misha Coetzee, of the popular blog-turned-website brandslut. Misha started out by taking photos of her dapper boyfriend in his classy get-up and posting them on Instagram, which then grew into a tumblr,  and finally became a fully-fledged blog of stylish proportion. Menswear never looked so suave (proof below).

If you're unfamiliar with the term 'stop motion', it's time you get familiar. A few years ago, during my 'uneducated stop motion' phase (it was a dark time in my life), a friend of mine showed me this video, and to this day it's still one of my favourite music videos. And without further adieu, your first lesson in stop motion comes in the form of Oren Lavie's 'Her Morning Elegance'.
Class dismissed (for now).

If you'd prefer to watch it on Youtube here's the link.

'Ben Howard' and 'Remix' - a combination of words I would never have put together in a sentence, let alone a song title. But, much to my surprise, I have been proved very wrong by Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles, an Australian electro-duo who also go by the name Peking duK. Half-time beats and 'wait for the drop' moments make Meg very happy.
Well played boys, well played.

Ever come out of a movie with the recurring "I feel so alive" thought bouncing against the walls of your brain? Well, I found myself in that head space a few days ago after watching The Perks of  being a Wallflower. And so it officially gets my stamp of blog-post-approval. Quirky humor contrasted with a heavy story line and some unexpected twists and turns made for a very satisfied customer. And yes, I cried (no one else did). Turns out I'm a bit of a softy.

You can watch the trailer here if you'd like.

Everyone, meet Petra, the Swedish 15-year-old taking Lookbook by storm. Rewind a few words back, cause I know what you're thinking, 15? FIFTEEN. What? She's just come out of her awkward phase, she's not supposed to have style? Well, she does. And along with this killer style she has a killer blog too. Have a squizz if you can deal with feeling like a bit of an underachiever.
