Hair Talk

a long-awaited snip 

... and a long-awaited update. If you haven't guessed already, I gave my dehydrated monochromatic locks a fresh cut quite recently. I had a love and hate relationship with my past hairstyle. I initially planned to say goodbye and break my sour commitment with all the platinum strands of that interesting hair-do. Long hair is something I resent. However, I was stuck with trying to figure out what look I wanted to go for without ruining the already dry and dying strands I had to brush through every single day.

After a long and a very serious talk with myself (as you do), I decided to look for a stylist and came across KT, the sweetest gal hairdresser ever. After a few or do I say a lot of precise snips here and there, the new(ish) me happened.





Inhale & Exhale

I am feeling absolutely zen under the sharp light and shadows offered by this lovely springy weather. Inhaling and exhaling the charm of it all, you know... while it lasts.

One thing that makes clothes interesting to me is the way they transform your body. This oversized sweater from 5 Preview features unusual contemporary cuts and shape. As a 5ft something, I often choose to wear humungous clothing - huge is perpetually good to me (I think?). Oversized outfits either drowns you or elongates you but this fleecy jumper definitely gives a 'limbs-extending illusion' (ha). Also, isn't it just cool to find your jumper telling you to relax? It's a befitting item of clothing made for me for sure.

Hope you enjoy your Monday. There's still a long week approaching. Don't forget to breathe!

The World Is Yours

Swedish brand, 5 Preview isn't new to this blog. The brand has become one of my most adored European labels. I picked a bunch of items from their  SS17 State of Mind collection . Matching sets are items I find a lot of fun (or easy) to style so I had to get my hands on the 'Ella' jacket and trousers. A polished look with a mix of cosy, a style that always strikes me, is what the Ella combo this set gives off. I paired them with a white tee to keep it simple, an embroidered socks reminding you 'the world is yours' for that quirky detail, trainers for comfort and a snazzy coloured sunglasses to see the world differently (intense saturation. ha!).

Did you know spring season is now? I got a pleasant spring welcome from a cloudy weather and the 27 mph winds though which was lovely (when will I stop with my sarcastic remarks? probably never). Anyway, if you were here last month, you would have seen me styled a few denim items from New Look. This is part deux. A blushing one this time - combining different hues of nude(ish) pink. SPRINGY! Thanks to my best buddy Mo for always producing snazzy photos of me.



Nike Flyknit Racers

I received a goddess through the mail and it's one from Nike. A flyknit racer that is for sure heavenly. Spring and summer will be light and cosy with this pair! Another +1 point to Nike for keeping me comfy again this season.

Black and blue I'm feeling you...

A random outfit snapped this weekend. I had my favourite SCRT tee on and these big trousers from One O Eight. I ate a lot, discussed ideas for an upcoming project (I will update you on this soon, ha!), listened to a lot of Sorority Noise and spent a lot of time in bed. FUN!




I'm not particularly pumped with anything, but I had an urge to post something.

A very impromptu schedule and not having a permanent space to stay at has clearly resulted to an unhealthy state of mind. Now I'm back in my good ol' nook in Essex, sat on a not so glamorous red of the reddest carpet that I missed the least, clearing out (trying my hardest at this point) a wardrobe full of 60% untouched pieces of garms... Why am I not crying yet? How irrelevant is the title of this post eh? I did get this shoes/pumps. They're cute so that pumped up my mood I guess.

I hope that was somehow an enlighting read. HA! Happy Sunday.
