CONTEMPORARY MEETS HISTORICAL | OOTD


 

I admit that I am a modern sort of person, and I love that!  I enjoy the 'slide to unlock' and being able to keep my friends and family updated about where I am and teasing them with food pics through one device.  Fashion, art and music are three of the most influential elements of my life.  I would always have my music on loud when I get ready, and usually wear what I feel depending on my mood that day.  Obviously, I don't need to dye my hair a crazy colour on 'I'm feeling rather colourful' sort of day - I'm not that extreme!  I do like to look presentable with a modern twist though.  So I don't really have a strict style to how I dress, I like to surprise people with my outfits.

I do find that trousers are super comfortable and practical.  I can do whatever without having to worry about my butt being shown in the heavy wind, so I've said many farewells to my short flowy pretty-looking skirts since the end of last summer.  Anyway, you wouldn't believe how long I've been searching for a nice leather trousers.  I was searching for way too long that I eventually given up.  But thanks to Paris, I've finally got one!  It's one of the most comfortable leather trousers I've ever tried on, the leather is super soft and the length fits me perfectly!  

Holla to all the petite ladies, I've found a leather trousers that has been made especially for us!  
We're not left out anymore!

PARISIAN STREETS | OOTD



It's a fact that the French are the king and queen of minimalism. 

From their hair all the way down to their toes, you'd often find that they are very well-groomed and look effortlessly polished.  They are often spotted with sharp tailored clothing with minimal wear of jewellery.  But don't expect to see lots of crazy pastel hair either, they're not so popular there.  I always feel that they don't follow the trends, but they set them.  I noticed that a lot of people (including fashion bloggers) are becoming more interested in the minimalist style recently.  I have days like that too, when I want to look laid back or too busy (or lazy) to decide which necklaces I should layer up that day.  But I do have a great love for prints and colours, so when I can't make a decision on which look to go for I just mix a hint of everything together!

SHORT ESCAPE TO PARIS


Last week, I reunited with a lovely friend who flew all the way to Europe from Australia.  We don't get to see each other very often, so we took great advantage of this opportunity and jumped on the Eurostar to Paris for a few days.  The last time I visited Paris was two years ago, which I never had the chance to live and see the city like the locals either, as I'd usually stay at hotels and dine at restaurants when I'm on holiday.  This trip was different.  But it was an successful one.

Me and my friend decided to rent a gorgeous apartment in the heart of Paris (when I say gorgeous, I mean it) where most of the furnitures were DIY and hand-painted.  I love that each pieces were individual as they were supposed to look unfinished - The lovely owner did an amazing job, it was such an artistic place I've ever stayed at!  Anyway, we avoided main attractions as we didn't want to blend in with the other tourists, hung out at local places and travelled through the Parisian streets by foot.  I absolutely adore the French's architects; gold details with romantic patterns sculpt into the stones… They were so heavenly!  I felt super inspired throughout my trip, and often took photographs of what I lived through at that moment.  Although, taking photos of food just because 'they look delicious' is acceptable too - I do that quite regularly!  The French are experts at making pastries and cakes, so every time I walked passed a patisserie, it's a must to stop and fantasied about eating what were shown on the counter!

SUMMER FESTIVAL OOTD | Sponsored: IKRUSH


I know that a lot of people who has been or still waiting to go to a music festival this season.  I've never been to one myself but always wanted to (especially in America), so next year I might give it a go!  The thought of putting up a tent (which I can't do), unpacking snacks and tons of drinks excites me!

When I received this gorgeous Adali floral set from ikrush, I suddenly thought of festivals and boho girls, you know… The ones wearing headbands, dream catcher necklaces, tassels and so on.  An idea popped into my head, so that's why I came up with this look.  Not because I was going to a festival this summer or anything, just because I got inspired!  I received this set a few weeks ago but I've just recovered from being ill so I didn't have a chance to shoot this look until yesterday (thanks to my boyfriend who took these lovely photos for me).  The good thing is that this set is currently on sale (click here), the colour is vibrant, material is soft and stretchy, but I really wish they could come in a size S (the sizing are S/M or M/L only) as the top is too big for me but the skirt fits perfectly!

Have a lovely day,
and let me know if you're planning on going to a festival?

Life update @ Handmade Burger


I'M BACK!  I'm really excited to be back on the blog, and keeping it updated more regularly.  Also, I have finished university - Fingers crossed I will be a graduate soon once the results are out!  So I'm excited (and a bit nervous at the same time) to start the next chapter of my life!

I'm currently trying to save up for my upcoming trips this summer, so hopefully I will be able to share more outfit posts along with my travels again this year.  I absolutely adore Paris, so without doubt I'll end up there for a visit at some point!  Along with a trip to Thailand - that will definitely happen.  To be honest, there are so many places in the world that I would love to visit.  I know that many people would say the same thing, but for me the main reasons I want to travel is to see/experience the uniqueness of the culture, art and fashion!  These elements has always been huge interests of mine.

Anyway, the weather has been really hot and sunny in the UK, so a few days ago me and my boyfriend went out for a meal at Handmade Burger, and because I was really hungry (and brave) I decided to order a burger.  I haven't had a burger from this restaurant for quite a long time so I actually forgotten how big each portions were.  I went ahead and ordered a 'peppered beef' burger because it sounded amazing and it was new on the menu.  Have you ever felt like you were so important just because you ordered something new off the menu?  That's me!  Always!  I get super excited every time my food arrives on the table!

Peppered Beef - Tasted delicious! The beef patty was marinated so the flavour was really strong but balanced out well with other ingredients! I would recommend this to those who is a fan of peppery flavouring and spice. 
My boyfriend had Macho Barbecue beef cheese & bacon, also new and the biggest burger on the menu.  He said it was really good, so I believed him as he finished the whole thing!
We shared a portion of cajun seasoned chips between us.  That was delicious as well, but we couldn't finish it as our burgers were already so heavy! 


Let me know if you're having a burger today!? ;)

See you on the next post!
