It isn’t long until we say auf wiedersehen to daylight that lasts until 8 in the eve, togs, lush strawberries and cherries. If you’re starting uni like me, it isn’t long till you say goodbye to free time. I’m not dreading summer’s end. I’m actually looking forward to turtleneck weather (which seems to stimulate some intellectual thinking), and seeing my digital planner filled with to do’s. And … Continue reading FOUR: Summertime, Anytime
Every now and then in her posts, my sister mentions tidbits about her growing up, about stepping (and often tripping) towards adulthood. While I’m years behind her life experiences, I think I’m starting to feel how she feels. It’s like a gradual, subtle shift, this whole growing up business. It’s manifested in how my summer break feels drastically different from the ones that I have … Continue reading F.O.U.R
I’m moody about shift dresses. They’re so comfortable you can sleep on it but they also tend to look like maternity dresses. “But pregnancy is beautiful, Christienne!” Yeah, whatever. I can pass for a 12-year-old sometimes (I blame the baby face and being vertically challenged) so seeing a PREGNANT teeny bopper-looking girl may be a little unnerving. There are days, though, when comfort kicks vanity’s … Continue reading GAOP: Walk on By
I’m back with baroque prints, Cleopatra eyes and a pun! This GAOP goes to y’all who are on their last minute outfit hunt to strut this New Year’s Eve. For this outfit, I got to use my Drive lipstick and Beauty UK eye colours together – both of my new favourite cosmetics these days! Baroque print is a really good excuse to wear my hair … Continue reading GAOP: Baroque your head off!
I’m at loss for words Time is short; the walls close in So here’s a haiku ONE It seems like a snapshot from winter, but really it’s from just a couple of days ago. I always wanted to capture reflections against rain-soaked concrete, and the weather gave me more than enough time to take countless shots of my balcony. TWO More reflections! More asymmetry! Y’all … Continue reading F.O.U.R
Spring is here! It’s also the perfect time to exercise your anti-spring trendsetting skills. Mind you, I do like a lot of things associated with this season (i’m a bit of a floral print junkie). When sky blues and full bloom floral prints are all the rage I just can’t help but to go the other way. So this GAOP is my way of flipping … Continue reading GAOP: Hey, Lolita, hey!
I grew up attending trick-or-treat events every year in the condo my mum managed, and when I say every year, I mean, EVERY SINGLE YEAR since my earliest memory of Halloween I didn’t fail to attend. My favourite part of the event was walking to the conference room (transformed into a party venue) because it meant that we would go through the fire exit where … Continue reading F.O.U.R
