I know you're thinking it- these round glasses are too big for my small face, aaaand you're probably right. Yet there is always something luring about oversized sunglasses that catch my attention. These Shakuhachi ones were a recent purchase from when I was in Sydney. I thought the reflective coating was quite different to the ones that I already had at home, and thus, a transaction was made. 

There are great perks that come along with owning a pair of mirrored sunnies. For one, my friends can use me as a mirror, and two, you can see my spunky photographer (the little sister) in some of these images.

There are selective apparels that no one can hoard too much of. Shoes in general are definitely up there on the scheme of things (at least in my eyes) but so is denim, and denim jackets are inherently a favourite of mine. Such a versatile, wardrobe basic is great for layering a street casual/ sports luxe look, especially when you want a balance from all- things leather. As such, I thought it was only necessary to complete the outfit with yet, another pair of sneakers, the infamous black Nike Roshe, with a delicate necklace and an elephant choker. Comfort is the way to go, right?

Now that I am back into the swing of the things- my usual routine of balancing everything and more, I have realised how much I cannot live without a comprehensively- planned diary. In fact, writing in my diary has signified how behind I am in terms of blogging. That is why I have spent this entire sunday evening/ night editing images, and drafting multiple blog posts to stay back on track. Furthermore, playing Lana Del Rey in the background helps a lot with productivity.

On a somewhat more interesting note, I will again, be in Sydney for two or so weeks for an internship at Golightly PR during the mid- semester break/ mid next month. I already know that it will be a fantastic experience regardless, and I can't wait to endeavour on such an exciting journey with the Golightly team. 

Even though I am trying to restrain myself from eating out, I have already compiled yet another, small list of places that I want to visit in Sydney. Ah, the struggles of being in a big city surrounded by numerous culinary choices. That also reminds me, I will try my very best to compile a part one of the Sydney photo diary together. If I don't, it'll end up being months worth of images and will probably lag everyone's computers, including mine.  

I hope you have a fantastic start to the week.

I can't wait to see your Sydney Photo Diary. I've been looking at your snaps on Instagram and you've seriously been around a lot of places in such a short time there. Whereas, I've lived in Sydney my whole life and I still haven't been to the Grounds.
