Love of the Black Jacket


So your probably wondering why in the hell am I wearing a coat in summer. Well let's be honest, London doesn't have a great record of continuously warm summers. In fact this Topshop Jacket is quite light anyways, so very wearable in winter, spring and autumn seasons. So glad I finally have something I've been wanting for ages!

London

Europe Trip: Week 1 and 2
Hey Guys I've been up to a lot since I last posted. I've even been to Amsterdam for four days with two high school friends, however I'll update you later on that. Here are some Instagram pics of the first two weeks I had spent in London. I mostly spent it with Clemmie, my old english school friend and Shannon who had come over from Aus as well. I'd have to say the thing that I had been doing most was walking everywhere. Seriously I swear my legs are going to fall off any minute, however nice and toned for South Europe beach paradise adventures ;) In the first two weeks in London I actually went to a Buddhist temple to do some meditation, just to further clear my mind. It was this amazing little temple in Wimbledon Parkside called the Buddhapadipa Temple. After being lost by myself with no cabs around and the buses not accepting my Oyster card because I had no money left, and not even having anywhere to top it up, a bus driver finally accepted me onto the bus and I literally showed up sweating from running from the bus stop. A monk greeted me on arrival at the temple and began with some chanting and then moving into this incredible red room painted with some interesting abstract and fantasy looking art, to do some meditation. What a cool down from the marathon i had just ran.

Honestly I haven't done a lot of shopping, I think I'm just waiting for Berlin because things are seeming very expensive, including bus and tube transport. I did some shopping at Topshop and bought two pairs of jeans, two bras (coz I only packed two by mistake :/), and my amazing long black jacket. 

I also started my Fashion and Photography Editorial course at the London College of Contemporary Art, which is really interesting and feeling a lot more comfortable with taking photos out in public once again. Hopefully if I get some nice photos out I will defiantly start sharing them on my blog etc.

I've honestly been catching up with friends and just having a relaxing time and doing my course. Stay tuned for some more Tourist Updates on Amsterdam, some more outfit posts and some more Landan town.

Europe Lust List


Hey guys! I finally arrived in London last weekend so it's been a while since I've posted anything. I've literally just been settling in with jet lag and taken no photos at all. Sales start next week so the hunt has not begun, however I've done a lot of browsing in stores for my Europe wardrobe update. Heres a collage of a few things I've seen my eyes on.  I've gone quite monochrome with a dash of baby pink, and it is very obvious that I am still in winter mode!!! 

I have a very big week coming up with a lot of snaps to share, so stay tuned.

Vivid - Last minute Cramming

 
... and my favourite...

Last night I dragged Harrison along with me to see Vivid. It was really impressive  this year, for the fact that I only saw the opera house last year ahah. Most of the interesting installations were near the MCA opposite the Opera house and I defiantly have to say the giant white bunnies were my favourite! 

Now for an update - only 3 days to go till I'm on the plane to Landan! As you can see I'm doing last minute cramming of things to see before I leave. Hopefully tomorrow after my friend Ling finishes uni, we will be off to the Biennale at Cockatoo Island so I'll defiantly be showing photos from there as well! Stay tuned...
