150924 – Retreat

So as I mentioned that things are hectic in life right now, that involves moving houses. My whole time living here in the UK I have not fully settled down in one house for more than 3 years. And now it finally comes another time where I have to pack my things and briefly install myself in a new location. Out of all the bedrooms I’ve had this was probably my second favourite (second favourite because it lacks the closet space). It was so cozy and for the first time in my whole time here I’ve had hardwood floors!!! I looove hardwood floors, most of the places here have carpet, not that I’m complaining, but c’mon, we all know it’s all about the wood floors. Anyway, my enthusiasm for flooring aside, I thought I’d share a couple of my favourite spots in this little retreat of mine. It was the little touches that made it feel like my little space, and hopefully i’ll feel the same way about it with my next space.

150920 – Ru’s loves from #NYFW

So its September, only the most important month for womenswear fashion, and to be honest I am not keeping up with all the amazing things that are happening because life isn’t always perfect. I know this is a bit late, but I seem to only have time to write and re-cap on New York fashion week right now. Meaning only God knows when the re-cap for the others will come (but they will because I have to do this to maintain my sanity).

150911 – Dumb Dumb for Red Velvet

“Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb” none stop in my head all day long! Everyone the power of SM. Red Velvet did not fail to impress once again with their first full album ‘ The Red’ (OMG finally) the music video is eclectically fascinating, other songs that leave my feet tapping in the album is obviously ‘Time slip’ and ‘Lady’s Room’. The full album is luckily on Spotify for your enjoyment so check it out!

 

150616 – Summer Looks

I’ve pulled out a couple of summer looks that I’ve been working during the hot times and have been drooling over. I do tend to stick to my own bubble when it comes to fashion. It doesn’t alter much in terms of clothes during the seasons, and I feel like it’s a good thing. It keeps my wallet happy to be honest. These looks are a reflection of what I would usually wear during the colder months, but with a summer twist.  Enjoy the weather guys!

I’m for sure not about to pack my fine knits away just because nature decided to bump up the degrees. Just kidding, do put some away, theres no need to keep the chunky black wool pullover just because it’s cosy, but lets compromise for the light ones, it may get a little breeze now and then.

A-line skirts are just the funnest! I love wearing year round even though I’m not the biggest fan of pairing them with tights during the winter, it still doesn’t stop me though. This look does scream school uniform and it deeply reminds me of the summer PE uniform from middle school (good old netball playing me). It’s still one of my favourites get out of bed and pull on kind of style.

This outfit is more like a staple for me. I’m the t-shirt and jeans everyday kind of girl, and I’m not gonna lie, it NEVER gets old, I don’t care how repetitive it is. I feel like accessories are the staple keys when it comes to this look. The cut of the jean may alter, the colour too, sometimes it’ll be a button up shirt rather than a t-shirt, but the items you pair it with would make the biggest difference. I’m not one to shy away from colour, so I would play with the accessories, like the Quay sunglasses, maybe a fun frame or lens (in this case both). It helps with the pop of colour and it take away the “boring” factor of the outfit (which isn’t boring at all). 

150521 – Balmain x H&M

Just when I thought H&M couldn’t wow me more with their collaborations since Wang, they drop this major bombshell! I’m still gutted I couldn’t get anything from the Alexander Wang collection, so wish me luck this time although, I’m not one for camping outside a store.

150520 – Jessica in June Marie Claire

I’ve recently been obsessed with the Jung Sisters. If you haven’t heard of them you really should. I feel like they are a mirror image of myself, personality wise and style wise. 2015 has been a bumpy and thriving year for both of them, so I’m always happy to see them popping in and out of different locations. Recently Krystal was featured in Oh Boy!Vogue Girl and filmed a Baskin Robbins campaign with her members from f(x) and now Jessica has been featured in next months Marie Claire Korea. Photographed by Shin Sun Hye, wearing simple attires from H&M Stella McCartney and Burberry, the styling was kept simple and casual. This pictorial really is one of my favourites so far from her, it’s really laid back and clean, also reflected on the location. The styling works perfectly with her, in a way it really outlines her own style, effortlessly feminine. Someone bless me with her looks!!!

150502 – Saturday Wonderland

Realising that it’s the last day for the Hermes Wonderland exhibition, I got out of bed earlier than I planned on this Saturday and hopped on the dreaded trip through the Circle line (I salute you central habitants, because the underground in central London is an absolute nightmare to navigate). Stepping into the world of Hermes was beyond fascinating. Each room had a magical appeal of its own, the bright and bubbly-ness of the cane room, followed by the cheeky wardrobes taunting each other, and exploring the Cafe of Lost Objects! A Saturday extremely well spent. Of course I could not pass off the mini food market outside the Saatchi that day. Indulging in the most amazing dumplings and cheeses yummm

One of the funnest exhibitions I’ve had the pleasure to visit! Definitely try to catch it in other cities

150423 – Summer Shade

I would call myself a sunglass enthusiast, actually make that addict. I can’t not buy a pair of sunglasses even when it’s definitely not needed, and believe me it never is. But since summer is slowly coming up and the sun is out, I thought it would be nice to share some of my favourite online/offline places and brands to get sunnies.

150307 – Recent Endeavours

So I’ve been scarily busy lately. Ever since the New Year I’ve been a busy bee. So first I have the chance to intern during London’s Collection Men and London Fashion Week and it was by far the most amazing time I’ve had in a long time, well at least career wise.

I’ve also been working on a project that is currently taking place, and it’s turning out to be bigger than I expected. It’s for a conference for women working in the maritime sector. The conference is called WIMA Africa, and it’s going to be taking place later on this month in Luanda, Angola. I’m proud to have been working on the website for this. Things didn’t turn out as I have envisioned visually, but of course the clients wish is what happens, so I am happy to have offered them a website that they are happy to have. 

I’m also almost half way with my buying and merchandising unit at uni, which is my very last unit. Meaning that after this, I will officially have completed my first year of university. I can’t believe time has flown by so quickly. It has been none stop work and super challenging, but that’s just how I like it.

141213 – Ru Buys

It’s December, you’d be lying if you told me you haven’t been shopping. Depending of wherever you are, maybe there was a Black Friday sale happening where you live, or you’re just stressing over what to get for a relative you barely know that’s coming for Christmas this year (hey I am). But I was a little selfish, just a bit, and got myself a couple of little things along to process. I’m definitely feeling the winter now, so wrap up warm. Such a joyous time
