This outfit post is important for two reasons, first it’s been a while since I posted an outfit picture (actually it’s been a while since I posted anything on the blog really..) But secondly and more importantly it’s the first time I have used Photoshop to edit my pictures. I am super proud and excited. I know it’s not perfect as of now, but image… !!! SO COOL!
I bought this Nowhere skirt during Christmas but it’s been too cold to wear. I can’t wait for it to be warm enough in London to go around with legs bare. You wouldn’t believe because of my skin color that I feel like I need to tan, but trust me. If you haven’t met the sun in over 6 month, it doesn’t really matter who you are, you are pale. That vitamin D is crucial to making skin look healthy and beautiful.
Did I mention I love MAC? No? Because I have never used it before. I was completely oblivious t the magic the lip pen create. I bought the matte red lipstick and the Cherry lip pencil to create this look. See the whole outfit later.
In the sprit of the black and white theme I have going here, I want to post something that every fashionista can look forward to!
I have a true love for all that is new, cause it brings a level of excitement and anticipation of the future. This upcoming artist makes me boom box burst (or more like vinyl record in his case). I bought his debut album on the day of. He’s been noticed by Vogue, featured in GQ’s “Most Stylish Men of the Week” and Elle’s “Bright Young Things”. There is a lot of pressure for the 23-year-old New Zealand musician Willy Moon, but I’m sure he won’t disappoint.
Due to the theme of my latest project I felt a slight obligation to expose my inspiration, my muse and a personal favorite; Janelle Monroe. She does music like no other current female musician, with very little skin exposure to promote narrow-minded-marketing-sex-sells-strategies, she utilizes her uniqueness, phenomenal dancing skills and stellar fashion sense. Also, the fact that she can sing and songwrite is a positive, even though we all know it is not a necessity to make it in the music industry nowadays.
One of the most pleasurable moments is seeing your work in front of your eyes, in motion. To debut my first styling video I set up a Youtube account for future projects, events and tutorials. I am going to inhibit myself before I promise too much, keep in mind I am limited with time (time flies by so fast in London) and will try to juggle all the balls at the same time to the best of my abilities. Nonetheless I really enjoyed this shoot and wanted to share it with you, do me a favour and share it with someone too.
Monochrome is the key trend at the moment and there was no question in my mind that I had to make a shoot asap.
The fact is, I am a make-it-work, think-fast-on-my-feet kind of person, so when the modeling agency unprofessionally canceled my two models less than 24 hours before the shoot, I had to think of a solution. Fast. The best thing I could do at this point is to multi-task, meaning I was a substitute model and the fashion director of the shoot. It was the first time I was put into that kind of situation and I managed quite well if I can say so myself. However I will try my best to avoid being a model, I’m the girl behind the camera, making magic happen.

Things change all the time nowadays. It is not news that I wake up 05:14 almost every morning. Don’t ask me why 05:14, but it gives me consistency. However I can’t help to feel tired, especially when things constantly change and things pile up and the only thing that remains the same is I’m still one person. My biggest wish is to duplicate myself, for many reasons, but probably the biggest reason to be back home in your arms. And that is my wish for today.
Everyone, whether into fashion or not, knows that accessories are the it items to pull off an outfit. Look how these fashionistas use accessories to show off at London fashion week.
Anticipating fashion extravaganza at London fashion week is not over-hyping. I’m expecting bold fashion choices, extraneous materials as accessories and Anna Dello Russo swooshing by whilst Tommy Ton takes an epic photograph. Today I treat myself to an aesthetic view like no other where I won’t have to see uggs nor rain boots and then listen to people try defend it as being both stylish and comfortable, as if these two are suppose to co-exist in harmony. But with few exception you can achieve the comfortable-yet-stylish-look, like with today’s outfit. Note: no uggs yet accomplishing the impossible.

Even though I spent a great weekend in Stockholm I am glad to back. As soon as I switched the off the airplane mode the phone started vibrating and I knew I was back to the hectic lifestyle once again. #londonlife
Since I was a child I have always wanted to live in a house. It wasn’t until I made a family of my own when my childhood dream came true. Thing is, shortly after we moved in, I got accepted to do a BA (hons) in fashion design and marketing in London. So I packed my bags and I left for another dream. I don’t regret it at all, however it’s nice to have an occasional escape to my blue house and play housewife once and a while.
Today is the last night in London before I head off to Sweden for my wanted and much needed weekend. So happy to go back home. Before I do here is a picture of the iconic Abbey road where Beatles shot their album cover, I had to do what thousands of tourist every year and take picture of a road (!)
