160223 – The First Monday in May

I’m working on a blog post it’s not like it’s anything special or new, but the words just aren’t coming to me. It’s not like I have a lot to write, it’ll probably be like two short paragraphs but I’ve written them probably over 5 times! It’s so frustrating when nothing just sounds right!

Moving on, I haven’t watched a film in ages no thanks to my schedule but things are slowing down now, so soon I’ll be all caught up especially with Deadpool! I was supposed to watch it on the night it came out. I don’t even know what happened, I probably had a deadline or something (he first two months of this year have been such a blur). But I’m so looking forward to this! The Met Ball is an event to save the date even if you’re just going to sit at home live tweeting to the red carpet stream, I’ve always wondered what went down inside there, and of course all the prep work, that’s always the best part about anything fashion in my opinion. And this trailer! omg… goosebumps!

160204 – Hey stranger

Hey there stranger! It’s been a long time since I’ve updated this page. Well here we go…

University is kicking my butt. Whoever said university was easy clearly wasn’t in the right course. I’m running on 6 hours sleep in the span of 4 days, I’m convinced that the pounding feeling on my head is here to stay so I should just accept it and move on. And my bedroom is in such a chaotic state that the only zen location I have is when I’m on the train commuting everyday (that is if it’s not delayed).

Life update: I moved houses again… but hopefully this time it’ll be final. My PR internship is less then two weeks away and I swear it’s so close yet so far away! I can’t wait to be stressing out over Fashion week then this make believe visual merchandising project. My hat is off to you VM people, you are the heroes that make it all look so easy!

My music recommendation for you guys is Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams. Yes the entire album! I’m still not over it and I’m dreading the day I get sick of it, because it’s so good! I can’t stress it enough.

Hope you guys are having a much more eventful week, and appreciate the sleep you get to have. I miss it so much

151229 – Cape Town Travel Log (Part 2)

Lifestyle, travel 2015-12-29

Two days ago we decided to go the the Cape of Good Hope or Cabo da Boa Esperança I prefer the name in Portuguese >_<. We didn’t actually make it because it was 1. a last minute planning thing, and 2. we got distracted by food as always and by the adorable Penguins at Boulders Beach Penguin Sanctuary which happened to be on the way. Not only was it the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen in my 20 years of living, we then found out that you could actually SWIM THERE with the penguins!! I was freaking out. Too bad I didn’t come prepared to jump in the ocean. But that didn’t stop me from dipping my feet in the water just to get a little taste. My dad promised a return so I could finally spend a day at the beach, because you don’t get many days like that living in London. There’s two days left of 2015, I honestly can’t believe how quick this year has been, but I am so glad it’s over, and ending it at the end of my mother continent makes it so much better

151226 – Cape Town Travel Log (Part 1)

Lifestyle, travel 2015-12-26

My family and I had to make a trip to Cape Town for a wedding and decided to stay for the Christmas break. The trip started out badly with some complications at the airport about yellow fever vaccines to our luggage not arriving, but it had a quick turn over so after a quick trip to Mr. Price to stock on outfits for two days and settling down in this lovely villa which we’ll be calling home for the next few weeks. Our journey finally began.

1

We spent the first few days getting ready for the wedding, which was beautiful set in a polo club overlooking the Table Mountiain, which I’m constantly in awe at the sight of it. You can see it from every corner of the city and the view never gets old.

So far we’ve visited Robben Island prison, for a history lover it was so fascinating to be in the same place were so many influential men in South African History were kept for years. It took every bone in my body to hold back the tears, and I learnt a lot of things.

3

Gorging on ice-cream has officially become my speciality, actually gorging on anything that is edible has become my speciality. I don’t even want to talk about Christmas eve or day because the food coma was severe! It’s the holidays who’s counting calories at this time of the year? I’ll let the guilt sink in after the New Years.

151117 – Orion

Uncategorised, video 2015-11-17

Hey guys! So in the midst of my procrastination I came about this youtuber, her haul video showed up on my suggested videos, and she had this beautiful wood desk on her background that I just had to go look at it for a whole entire 3 minutes. Yes I did just click on the video so I could see the desk. But as you do, I went on to see what other fun stuff she had to offer on her channel, and came across this one video, which was so cute. So from what I gather she made this (or wrote this i’m not sure, I haven’t read the book) based of Michael Faudet’s ‘Dirty Pretty Thing’ which is a collection of poems, and turned it into an aesthetically beautiful cinematography piece. I am usually the type of person that prefers to watch a film/video for aesthetics and not for plot lines or character development, so videos like that really make me happy, I am a HUGE sucker for art films!! Check it out bellow and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

To Orion, keep it up
