Festivity


I can never escape a good rooftop for a summer evening shoot. Luckily for us, this was taken on a day when the temperature was not hitting the mid to high 30s.

Adelaide has been experiencing crazy heatwaves for consecutive days (proof) and as a result, I find myself glued to the air conditioner until the weather decides to finally cool down. Not the best way to spend the summer but what can you do. 

I was fortunate enough to play around with some of Pandora's new jewellery pieces. I've always been an avid lover of their delicate rings and could not pass up the opportunity to pair the intricate items with this gorgeous Bronx and Banco dress.

And if you are stuck on a new NYE dress, GlamCorner's got you covered with my special discount of 10% off all orders by entering "SILKYBOW" at check out. If you don't intend to make a purchase for something that you're only going to wear once, resorting to a hiring service for  a special occasion is a great alternative.

On a more relative note, I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas yesterday! I worked on Boxing Day today and let me tell you, feeling exhausted is a complete understatement. As a matter of fact, the extensive exhaustion has led me to blog right now because it was about time that I had updated anyway. And honestly, my body can't do much else besides staying in bed to draft this entry.

It's hard to believe that it will be 2016 in a week's time. WHHATTTT...

This year has seriously flown by and now I'm already finding myself contemplating as to whether I want to do anything for NYE. I mean, I do have a very early morning flight awaiting for me the next day so the contemplation struggles are real. To be responsible or to not be responsible. 

P.s. Visit my Instagram to see how you can win a double pass to Adelaide's Laneway Festival next year! But seriously though, who can resist winning free tickets to an awesome music festival anyway?

Surprise, surprise.... I'm alive! Whilst it may be obvious to a couple through my somewhat regular pictorials posted on the Instagram app, this blog has definitely been neglected for way too long. 

So what's been happening with me lately? Within a month's time, I will be free from any university work for approximately 3 to 4 months. But in the meanwhile, I am buried between piles of readings for essays that are yet to be completed as well as preparing/ cramming for my upcoming law exams. 

In January, I'll be jetting off to Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand for a few weeks which I am incredibly excited for. If you have any recommendations of food places or must- do activities within those countries then please comment/ email/ or tweet me as I would love to know. 

I have been quite motivated and inspired to blog regularly again. I know for a fact that I have many belated posts that I really, really (sincerely!) want to publish once I am on my summer break. I'll love to do a "My current make- up routine", Japan photo diaries, Japan recommendations, more weekly outfits, and random tagged posts. 

For the mean time, here's a casual outfit post with my Superstars that I've search everywhere for. Trying to find these in my size (UK5) was such a struggle, but I managed in the end, and that is all that really matters.

P.s Sorry if I look incredibly unhappy (-insert any other alike synonyms-). I promise I am naturally cheerful in real life, although these photos suggest otherwise.

Spring Ready


Hey everyone!

As always, I know it has been a while since I've last touched the blog. If anything, it was probably the longest time, as I don't recall myself even visiting my website much for the whole of last month. To be fair, the stress of exams, completing large assignments at the very last minute, and then shortly finding myself in Japan for four weeks should thoroughly explain my unproductivity. But it's always such prolonged periods of time of not uploading anything that I become incredibly inspired to post a lot from thereon. Let me tell you, I do have a lot of things in mind that will include more than just your usual 'personal fashion' blog entries.

Firstly though, here's a casual outfit that I wore on Saturday. I love my sneakers, and for the most part, you'll catch me wearing a pair, especially when I'm at uni. Running to a class that you're 5 minutes late to becomes that much easier with them on. I want to incorporate more everyday/ sneaker looks onto the blog to demonstrate that you can easily dress down anything with a suitable pair of sneakers.

Deep down, I was wishing I was in Japan during spring to witness their 'sakura' season firsthand. And it is partially that reason that I wanted cherry blossoms to feature in my latest blog post when I found some blossoming beautifully down the quiet streets of Adelaide.

In regards to travelling, I've realised that I do travel interstate quite a bit. And it got to a point where I no longer bothered to document any of it on here, besides the daily updates that I spam all my followers with on da gram. However, it is something I do regret as I tend to forget that a majority of my readers are Australian, and not everyone has visited Melbourne, or Sydney for example. Is it not nice to read detailed blog posts filled with new recommendations for brunch places, tourist areas, or shopping districts that I've visited? I know that is one thing I search online for when I'm planning to visit a new city. This realisation came to mind when someone on my Ask Fm recently asked me where they should go for breakfast, lunch and dinner in Sydney. If she/ he had asked me this a year ago, I would have provided them with an extensive list but considering how I have not been to Sydney in almost a year, I barely knew the 'updated' answer to it anymore... 

Consequently, I am aiming to change this, and what's a better way to do this that to write one (or a few) for Japan? I'm thinking of doing a couple photo diaries, and of course, recommendations of what you should do if you were to visit Japan from my perspective! That'll be in another post though ;)
