Cracked


Here's a little something that we shot before attending the Agent Provocateur launch at David Jones last Thursday night. (Launch updates will be up soon). For practicability reasons as I had work earlier that day, I decided to dress down this delicate black and white gem with some cut- out boots for a more casual look. Alternatively, I've worn this dress before with some simple, white heels for a more formal vibe (despite the shoes not being pictured in that link... Ooops). I love anything neoprene, so this dress was immediately a favourite pick of mine from Rosa House Boutique. Thanks girly!

It was actually an amazing feeling to be back on track with blogging and working, as well as being able to take proper outfit shots again when I came back from my short holiday in Sydney. Yet, after staying in Adelaide for just a week, I end up finding myself back in Sydney again for a few more days. Hopefully this is a good reason (and excuse) for the constant food updates up on my Instagram. (Yes, I do realise that I've been consuming a lotttt of food, good food at least, throughout my three to four weeks of uni break). I'll definitely be detoxing/ eating more of mum's home- cooked meals when I am back. I've miss it. I hope you've liked this update, whilst I'm off to eat again. Haha.
P.s. It looks like my hair needs to be re- touched again... Sigh.

Enchanted


These are my favourite outtakes from a recent collaboration shoot that I did with the talented Carolyn. I love being able to meet, and work with different photographers, as each individual has their own special touch to what they do. In case you were wondering, we shot these images at a little garden known as the Adelaide Himeji Garden (a Japanese garden) in the city. I didn't even know such place existed so there was definitely some excitement when I first caught glimpse of the sight. I ended up doing three outfit changes for this shoot, where I opted for a pastel- coloured theme with a more girly touch.

And as graceful as these images may appear to be, I think we did a pretty good job hiding the fact that we were faced with terribly cold, winter weather on the day. I was surprised that the waves in my hair still held up after being attacked by the slight rain, and that the goose bumps all over my body didn't show up on camera. Okay, the goose bumps did show up on camera, but we didn't end up using those photos anyway. Enjoy!

I give my sincerest and most empathetic apologies to anyone who has occasionally pondered on the blog to see the same black ensemble for weeks. It was difficult to find myself on the laptop, attempting to do any form of blogging (whether it'd be editing, drafting, or publishing a post) when I was in a daily food coma from over- eating in Sydney. But now that I am back home, I will ensure that my email responses are more prompt, and blog posts more frequent. 
Despite the numerous trips to restaurants, dessert cafes, and tourists' landmarks, I managed to pick up a new staple - these Acne jeans on my short holiday. This pair has been attached to my legs since day one of purchase. At least it somehow knows how to hide all the excess fat I've gained from the trip.
