Back when our husbands were just girlie crushes, mini butterfly clips and chokers were WAY cool (people still said… ‘way cool’) and the thought of kids was furthest from our mind. We shared passion for love, music, dancing, art, clothes & partying.
Too early in our friendship we were separated, by an ocean as Trini was whisked off overseas by her later to be husband, and Billy joined her Rockstar love at the alter. Lives drifted apart with a few contacts back and fourth over the years.
A couple of years ago, our friendship was once again rekindled and began to strengthen as we learnt about the women we had both become in the years since we met.
Billy has a passion for words and photography, seamlessly weaving both into her life. Honest, open and inspirational to all that she meets. She juggles motherhood, career, being a wife and an artist, all with grace. She is confrontingly honest with her imperfections too, which makes her writings and images refreshing and deeply moving.
Trini is a beautiful woman that stands out in a room. She has a presence that invites you in wanting to know more. She is selfless and giving, dedicated and loyal. Her creative talent is admired and spills into many genres.
Previously we were known as Sequins, Stillettos & Sparkles – which was a creation three years ago by Billy & Natalie (Sydney & Hong Kong) and then Billy & Trini (Sydney & Singapore) continued the journey in 2011. With a year sabbatical (in which saw the arrival of Billy’s youngest scrumptious munchkin) we are starting afresh in the new year, we’ve had a revamp, rename, restart… not only bringing our worlds together through images, but sharing words of inspiration from others and some snippets from our own hearts.
Passport of Poets is place where we can connect, not just with each other, but with our inner artist. It is a dedication to our friendship, ourselves and our voices.
We hope we share something in our journey that inspires you in yours…
Billy & Trini
