NYE: Friends and gold heels

Asos heels

Hello everyone, I am finally back again. I know I have been absent for a long time, again. So, to summarise what I have been doing... I think I am still adapting this fascinating London life, after 3 months I have moved here. I don't know whether to say it's because I'm adapting well (trying to see everything, I mean absolutely everything, in London), or I'm adapting badly and slowly.

Anyway, my way of celebrating this festive event NYE is by spending it and having fun with my good friends in London, along with my new shoes of course. Do you like them? When I bought them on the internet I thought they were merely a pair of really nice shoes, it wasn't until they arrived I then realised what a perfect pair of shoes they are! Despite the fact that these are probably 5 inches high, but with the platform and the comfortable sole inside, they are actually really easy to walk in. I managed to wear them and walked to several places for up to 4 hours without feeling having painful feet. Not to mention the fact that they were in the sale as well...

Have a good NYE to everyone and much love to you all when the clock strikes 12 tonight! xxx

Late blog post...

Sorry guys, sorry for the massive blog break! So I have just recently moved to London and you know, you want to see a lot of London, right?.. In the past month I have just been busy making new friends (as you do in London), looking in shops and local markets. (In addition to this, I found the cutest, sweetest hat in Spitalfield last Friday. Can't wait to show you guys after I have cleaned the dust off my camera and take a photo with it.) So, London, yeah it's too much to take in all at once. Also, I'm still looking for a photographer... if you guys know anyone who would do it (voluntarily) or really cheap, let me know and drop me the name and email address in a comment box please!

As the Christmas lights are already up on Oxford Street and Regent Street, I have decided maybe it's time to slowly start progressing through my Christmas wish list as well. Of course, if you know me, by slowly I mean the list is going to be BIG.

P.s These are the photos my friends and I took for her uni course. I certainly had an amazing time pretending to be an art student.

Have a great week everyone!

Good-odd jackets

Sorry I haven't been able to post some outfit posts these days as I have just moved to London and barely know anyone. Not to mention know any photographers... BUT, if you know someone, please get them to email me and we can maybe work on something together. My email address is

So, jackets..., the first one is by Evil Twin and accordingly, it's called 'Thieves Shearling Sleeveless Jacket'. You get the picture. I would absolutely love to have this jacket for this winter. Not just the hood, but the texture and the material used just make the whole jacket more irresistible.

The second jacket... I don't know. I guess sometimes love just can't be explained...

P.s you can get both jackets from urban outfitters :)

ALDO casuals

I look at either pair of them and it feels like love. Then I look at the other pair it feels like cheating. Don't worry, I will start YET another shoes fund and bring you both home. Not until I officially move to London though. I think I have already over-packed...

Birthday night out

Zara trench coat
Mango blouse
Topshop knicker shorts
Flat shoes from holiday

I apologise for the photo heavy post! I know I haven't been able to post in the previous week so hopefully this photo heavy post can make it up to you guys.

So, I have had one of the busiest week... As I have told you before, I'm moving to London this month for further education. And just when I started getting really enthusiastic about moving to London, my halls of residence emailed me and said they happen to be over-subscribed. So thank god in the end I managed to find somewhere to stay. So, dilemma over.

Let's talk about clothes again... Just as I thought, it's time to get a grip and really see what's for this A/W, LFW starts emailing me about SS12! You just won't understand how I feel. Mixed emotions I guess...

Have a nice day everyone xxx

I have a bum bags addiction

Hello everyone :) Today is my birthday and I had another best birthday again! I went through to Edinburgh to see my friend Eirene last night. It was an amazing night being with my friends, clubbing and making new friends. My friend Taylor helped me to take some photos of my outfit from last night. I'm still sorting them out, will put them on here in a post soon :)

Another thing is, I went vintage stores shopping today before I left Edinburgh and guess what I found?? A vintage Burberrys raincoat. It's too big and too long though so I'll have to get it resized. Can't wait until it's done so I can show you guys :) Another-another thing... My friend Eirene gave me the best birthday bracelet. There are charms on it and each of them represents a German car company. I shall take a photo of it soon and show you lovelies as well :)

Have a great weekend

The last taste of summer

So summer, where have you been hiding this year?? I cannot believe we're into September already and hardly had a taste of summer. The only taste I had would be when I was on holiday in July.

Back to the outfit, I really like this dungaree for its amazing colour. It has this washed out denim look which is just what I was looking for. The sad thing is, originally, I planned to wear a large cotton short sleeve t-shirt (GAP style) with this dungaree however, I failed to find one, hence the white shirt instead. In my opinion it looks a bit boring :( Needless to say, I will NOT give up continuing to find the 'perfect' t-shirt for this look!

P.S Sorry it's been a while since I last blogged, but I guess I have some exciting news...! I am finally moving away from home! And... I am moving to London! The city of shops and fashion in UK. Every morning I wake up, thinking it's probably a dream. So, I'm also not just moving to London, I will actually be attending university there as well but I promise, I will keep up with the blog.

Bum bags

Recently I have been trying to find a perfect bum bag but there aren't many options out there! Then I remember this shop called t.o.u.g.h that I came across when I was on holiday and asked a relative of mine to take a photo of the bum bags in that shop. And what did she find...? :)

I certainly had a difficult time trying to decide which one I should get until I came to the conclusion that, why not get the both of them?? In addition, if you know any websites that sell bum bags, let me know! I don't mind having a collection of them!

Happy monday

Some kind of maxi

Zara leather jacket
COS white dress
Zara sandals
Vintage Vivienne Westwood bag

This time, I finally brought myself outside in the so-called good weather and got my outfit photos done by a close friend of mine. This view is most definitely better than the ones from my garden. In this post I'm wearing a maxi style dress that I bought back in June, I'm talking about, this dress was actually hung up in my wardrobe, untouched, for more than two months... The reasons to this were 1. I didn't want to wear it just in case I got any stains on this lovely dress; 2. I had this idea that this dress should be worn with heels until I tried it on today with a pair of flats. I think the dress has an amazing style itself already so wearing it with a pair of flats would be too over-dressing the whole look.

Layers and flying

I have never posted more than 4 photos in an outfit post. There are a total of 6 photos in this post hence I absolutely LOVE this dress. I love the layers on this dress, I love how every time I look down at my dress, the layers are sitting differently however still look good. Second reason, right, so I love the way this dress blows in the wind... haha. You can honestly tell as I let my dress played with the wind in these photos. By the way, sorry for the total lack of sun light in these photos, it was the brightest point of the day...

So, summer is almost over (summer was over ages ago in Scotland, I'm wearing my Gap long sleeves hoodie as I speak), do we have any style ideas for A/W?

Low Luv x Erin Wasson

Evil eye cuff
Negative space cuff
Bone cuff
Hammered ring
Triangle handpiece

I have such an obseesion for jewelleries lately. I know my last post was on jewelleries, sorry but I'm blogging another post on the same topic again! Here are some pieces by Low Luv x Erin Wasson. I love Erin Wasson, but I love her designs/collaborations even more. Just as I was 'looking for jewellery ideas' on Shopbop, I ended up buying one of the pieces for myself! I really shouldn't sound surprised...

So, the last photo (the handpiece) is my new purchase, only in silver instead of gold and an evil eye instead of the triangle. I must not lie, even though by Erin Wasson, I got it for quite a good price, which makes me feel even more satisfied buying it...

Now, it's just the waiting, for this piece of beautiful to come home to mama...

Just a quick post on my jewelleries... As Fashionology is still having a sale on, of course I couldn't resist and bought this lovely bracelet, while I was surfing the net on my phone... This really proves I'm slowly driving myself towards the world of shopaholics, doesn't it? So, the rest of the necklaces/rings/bracelets/watches were either bought when I was on holiday or bought in stores when I was at home. Shamely I have already made some scratches on a few of the rings and bracelets... oh well, I could always buy the same ones again when I come across them in the future.

An usual problem I have with my silver coated copper/nickel jewelleries is, that the silver plated colour comes off rather quickly. I know that one of the solutions would be to buy some liquid silver and plate it silver again, however, are there any other ways??

What I have been up to these days...

Sorry for the lack of posting these days. My internet hasn't been working in a week now but woo... BT engineerer is coming on Friday morning so hopefully it will be fixed then. Have you guys got the Elle A/W collection edit?? I would really recommend it, it's such a good buy, totally allows you to keep a paper record of what went down the runway (I often have a problem forgetting what I saw in runway videos).

P.S I now have a second job, I can finally afford some Emporio Armani underwear ;) haha.

Reconsideration and reconstruction

You might wonder why the title of this post is called 'reconsideration and reconstruction'... Reconsideration as in reconsider what kind of styles I like and suit me; follows by reconstruction, as in re-arrange what pieces I might like to wear from now on.

I assume it's not just me, but we all go through stages of styles. Recently I have felt what I sometimes wear is a little bit, childish in a sense. So, I've decided to R&R and figure out what might be best for me for the year or even season coming. This involves with a lot of magazines reading. Of course, if you beautiful readers have any suggestions of styles you like, don't be shy to leave a comment!
