I can finally share some photos I took during my trip to Paris. We took a train out from London and arrived at about mid day. We spent a good 40 minutes getting lost, walking in rounds trying to find our apartment. Thankfully with the help of some locals, we managed to locate the building that we so desperately needed to settle in to. We couldn't wait to explore the beautiful city and to create some perfectly parisan memories. 

1. Eiffel Tower: Needless to say, it was magical and romantic. Dan got me a little Eiffel Tower keyring with a black bow to mark that Paris was a city we've visited together. 

2. Musée du Louvre: The ceilings of The Louvre was what intrigued me most, till I had a slight neck ache after we were done from the day.

3. Père Lachaise Cemetery: The largest cemetery in the city of Paris, it was so calm and peaceful. Nothing eerie at all. Walked about an hour to get to Oscar Wilde's tomb and it started to hail. (not kidding) Jim Morrison's tomb is also at this cemetery.

4. Galeries Lafayette: The French upmarket department store and also my favourite building of Paris. The interior is amazing, I felt like an actual Princess in a castle.

5. Champs-Élysées: Everyone was buying Chanel, Prada and Louis Vuitton but my sole attention was on buying Pierre Hermé macarons. Only.

6. Notre-dame de Paris: Yet another mind blowing architectural amazingness.

7. Pont de l'Archevêché bridge: Something I wanted to do for a long time, and I'm glad it was with Dan. The love lock bridge is of walking distance from the Notre-dame cathedral.

Other places we went to was the Palais Garnier and the Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile. In all, Paris was such a beautiful city, definitely a trip to remember. You can view my Postcards from New York here

Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures, all my love always, x

A while ago I collaborated with Gnossem and picked out a vest by Finders Keepers, one of the many amazing brands they carry. The saying goes, all that glitters is not gold but, this vest is gold. I fell in love with this number because of its detailing. The silver threads woven into this garment makes it sparkle subtly and for those of you who know me, I love all things that sparkle. All except vampires. Jokes aside, I'm really glad that this piece is the 5th and newest member of my current family of vests. Here's when I paired another to a different outfit in case you missed it! I have this odd association when I see a vest. When I see one, I think of French/English men wearing newsboy caps and smoking pipes. Its like how a flamingo reminds me of Miami, pineapples.. and I talk too much.

Counting down to next week where I'll be flying off to Bangkok! 

All my love always, x

It's a 3 week countdown to indulging in Thai cuisines, enjoying coconut ice creams, traditional massages and shopping at the markets under the sun.
 I definitely do miss the cold weather in London especially when living in Singapore is like being in an oven 24/7. The last few days in London wasn't as cold so there wasn't a need for a coat. Borrowing Dan's sweater seemed like the perfect idea that day. Shot these photos near our hotel at High Street Kensington, I remember that it was a morning that made me really happy. We had breakfast at the hotel, shot some photos, strolled to Kensington Gardens to feed the ducks and swans and then headed off for some hot chocolate and muffins. It got me thinking, how nice it would be to live every morning like this, simple and peaceful. #Goals to live for. 

All my love, x

Current situation: Snuggled in bed with a cup of tea while planning out the itinerary for my next trip to Thailand in May. Things are going to change tremendously for me after the coming 2 weeks and I'm not sure how I am going to cope. Can't say much about it yet but I figured that being busy helps a lot. My organiser is pretty filled up with to-dos, brunch meet ups with friends, events, work and not forgetting quality time at home and with Dan. Shall take some time this weekend to tidy up the mess on my table, cook some waffles with my Mickey waffle maker and get started on my new novel. Sounds like a great weekend already, hope you guys have a good one too!

Without a doubt, I have lived and breathed in this pair of jeans. It's definitely my favourite pair and I think it's the most featured piece in this blog. Before I actually owned this pair, I don't think wearing jeans was my first choice when it came to dressing up. Ripped jeans are the best, there are so many different kinds. From one knee rip to both or rips all across the thigh, it goes on and on. I'm eyeing my next pair, in the boyfriend style. What's your favourite pair or style of denim? 

And do you spy that gold heart necklace I'm wearing? It's one of the necklaces from the new minimal range from Love Beverly! The latest collection is my favourite so far, you can shop here

Have a great week ahead everyone! All my love, x

GRANDEUR

They say Paris is a city where you fall in love, eat endless amounts of croissants and pastries, visit the museums and basically live the life of a parisian. When I arrived in Paris, indeed I was blown away by the architecture of every building. It is true that every corner of Paris is photogenic, no matter where you point your camera at, it's definitely an Instagram worthy snap. I indulged in hot chocolates and macarons every day and it became a guilty pleasure. Getting around was pretty easy, it was either by bus or the metro and pretty soon my purse was filled with the tickets from the transport systems. I preferred taking the bus as there was more to see rather than the metro where all you can see is darkness from it being underground. My next goal would be to travel other parts of Europe for new adventures, who's with me?

 Pictures below are from the Musee De Louvre, enjoy!
