Life Calls

19 Jun

It has been a crazy few months – a lot of new opportunities and responsibilities. I’m not complaining obviously but the only bad thing that has resulted from this would be my absence from this very blog. It is very, very much my fault!

Cross fingers I have found the right recipe in juggling this blog into my routine. Writing used to give me a sense of release at the end of a stressful day – guess I just need to find that balance again.

So what have I been up to?

Well, the good news is I’ve started a job as a PR & Social Media exec at a jewellery label here in London. In a million years I never thought I would ever work in PR, but this job has definitely been an interesting experience. Work is good, great actually!

On another note, I have also been attending summer school at the London College of Fashion in their Buying & Merchandising course. I’m juggling part-time studying with work – thoroughly absorbing as much as I can about the fashion industry. How did I get from a background in Mathematics to this, who knows? I’ve yet to give my mum an answer to that question – I’m the main cause of her headaches. Sorry mum!

Always a good quote to live by.

Just a few “outfit of the days” for when I attended my classes..

I’ve tracked a habit – I’m constantly trying to lure you with pictures to make up for my absence in blogging. I have a funny way of saying sorry! Hope this act of luring will make up for it – that or the pictures themselves.

Just a series of a weekend “outfit of the day” when I met up with an old housemate/uni friend who came down to London for a visit! This was some time ago – I’ve been meaning to put this up!

 Saturday

We just had a lazy day at the Victoria & Albert Museum

I took him to my fav cafe in Hampstead, about 5 mins from where I live.

Always good to catch up with an old friend!

It’s mid-June and I’m still having my boots and coats on standby! Only in the UK you get rain, sunshine and the cold all in one day! I find myself stuffing an umbrella, sunglasses, scarf and a jacket all in one bag before heading out – I need a bigger bag!

Pastel Inspired

6 May

I was inspired by this pastel nail polish collection by Orly. Don’t they look so yummy? Makes me think of ice-cream and macaroons! Mmmm.

I absolutely love this pastel trend! Besides the infamous colour blocking trend, this too has flood the runways. It gives a more romantic feel for summer! I started playing with polyvore and this is my pastel inspired outfit put-together;

All items are from Topshop. It was intentional, as I thought at least these items are accessible to people in Malaysia (if anything catches your eyes :))

I find a lot of people are afraid to play up with colour which result in some outfit looking too “matchy-matchy”. Obviously fashion is subjective, what I perceive is pretty might not be acceptable to you. However, there shouldn’t be a limit to the colour we are allowed to put-together.

From the nail polish picture, it is apparent that those pastel colour could work well together if you find something that could tie them altogether, in this case the pretty floral shorts! I chose a simple cream top to keep at least one thing neutral, since the shorts has prints on it. The mint green clutch and lavender coloured flats brings out the colours in the shorts really well! The ring just adds a pop of colour with its vbrant purple stone!

Suitable for a girly lunch or a relaxed date 🙂
