Black & yellow, black & yellow...

This was supposedly posted 2 days ago, but my wisdom tooth decided to seek some attention. The pain left me unexcited about life so instead, I decided to watch Star Wars, eat lots of potatoes, argue with people and listen to Mac Demarco.

All the cool kids have been sporting these half zipped pullovers for quite some time now. I found this waterproof/rain jacket in my wardrobe, though ugh I have no idea what brand it is. Paired with all black pieces, this outfit makes me feel very Skepta. (If you don't know, click the link. Now you know! hehe)

Anyway, I hope you all are enjoying the holidays! Can't wait for that turkey (or roast chicken as we don't appreciate turkey as much, but I'll update you on that)

A message in a bottle

Today, at this digital era, messages are spread and shared via emails, text messages and other various forms of social media. I have always been interested in snail mails. Communicating through the post is somewhat heartwarming and special.

The girls from Birambi sent me this silver necklace packed in a little test tube with the loveliest note (ugh, cutest thing ever!).

Birambi creates these minimal and cool gifts such as jewelry, posters, bath salts, tea and other quirky little gifts. The brand has "message in the bottle" as a concept. Their aim is to connect people through these personalised gifts. Each of these products comes with personal messages from the sender.

During this month of giving and receiving, I suggest you guys to head over their website. Their items are special and reasonably priced. They are the cutest and are perfect Christmas gifts or fillers. You won't be let down. I can promise you that!

Somewhere between black and blue

"Style is the reflection of one's mood." You have most likely heard this many times before.

Well, "navy" has been the recent mood.  My italicised description of navy is the literal ambiance of my life presently.  As I've got into this ensemble four times in the past couple of weeks, I may have become this dark suited sad being - so deep, so dark. Although, really and truly, I just want comfortability. Zero is the quantity of effort put into this matter.

We get caught up on a heap of things daily. Whether that's work, play or whatever.  Sometimes, it's only right to be comfortable and relaxed. We don't need try so hard on everything. You know!  It's just as simple as being effortless or casual in terms of clothing.  I'm fairly sure you've heard these before too... "Less is more" or "Effortless is chic".

So, loosen up!
