FOREST HUES


"You look like a forest."

That's the response I got from my brother whilst eating a Sunday roast with the fam this lunchtime. Although I could have easily questioned his choice of clothing -he's been wearing the same tracksuits since last Saturday- I was pleased with his comment. Not that I ever look to my brother for his 'fashion seal of approval', but even a sarcastic comment about an outfit I'm wearing from my oblivious brother has confirmed that a matching combo is a good statement outfit. I'm loving matching combos at the moment and swapping up my usual greys for a colour like khaki. There's something about pairing these satin trousers with Stan Smiths which gives off a 70's sports vibe that I'm oh so feeling (I had to restrain myself from wearing a logo tight vest top).

PARIS POST


I have just got back from the most amazing few days spent in Paris with friends. This city never fails to amaze me with its beauty.

Here are a quick few of the things I feel are a must see if you are planning a short visit to Paris (this is mainly food related..obviously):

  • PAUL bakery- for the best on-the-go baguettes
  • Centre Pompidou- The Jeff Koons exhibition is well worth a visit
  • YSL 1971 exhibition
  • Pierre Herme- For macaroons that will change your life
  • Angelina- The queue is always huge to try and get a table, but if you cannot feat the wait, get a take a way hot chocolate! It's like drinking pure, warm milk chocolate (my mouth is watering while I type this)
  • Dirty Dicks Cocktail bar- Situated in Pigalle amongst the dozens of sex shops, this cocktail bar is so much fun! You can drink fruity cocktails from massive conch shells and the waiters are all in hawaiian shirts, cause you know, why not?
  •  Fleux' Interior design shop- Beautiful and unique decor for a reasonable price

NEW SCENES


TOP- urban outfitters// DRESS- h&m// JACKET- forever 21// TRAINERS- adidas// SUNGLASSES- vintage

I've been admittedly quite poor at keeping up with my new years resolution of bringing some personalisation to my blog. Actually, I've been quite poor at keeping my blog up to date in general. Now I'm home from uni for Easter, I can put some much needed TLC in to this little space so keep your eyes peeled for both heart warming and heart wrenching posts...

I'm just kidding.

I'm about as deep as a puddle.

I will however, be doing a few life update posts as I have a few exciting things lined up that will involve some new scenes for this blog.

PETITE PROBZ


My struggle to track down a petite pair of black dungarees literally sent me to despair and I had almost come to the conclusion that no such thing exists. The length of all the ones I tried on must have been made to fit those who have legs that come to no end and should come with a warning sign for petite people reading: 'not to try on unless you want to feel like a 5 year old trying on your mothers clothes'. I can very much speak for all petite people when I say that getting a pair of well sized jeans makes you feel as if they were made for you as it is a rare occasion for such a thing to happen. So when I found these petite fitting dungarees tucked away in the corners of h&m, you can imagine the joy I felt.

P.S Kudos to Soraya for the photos
