Lifestyle | Snapshots ~ Throwback

1 comment
So dolls, I'm back with a take on how my life has beenlately. I've left off with this Snapshots series so long ago that my memory fails me exactly to when. That's when  decided that it was always a perfect time to pick up where I left off. The past month has been eventful to say the least. From delectable desserts to gorgeous fashion, enjoyable work and blissful nature; it's been a wonderful wave of activity so let's take a look!

Work and play, all rolled into one

I got the entire galaxy on my pants, you guys!

I watched the FIFA World Cup, not entirely for the football though *Ahem*

I painted my nails red post a pedicure because it seems like I know no colour besides it

The rains finally arrived in the city. I was so thankful the heat subsided and cried as well that it was flooding #MixedEmotions

Puma knows how to add humour along with their clothes. At least I know what to wear for some light gardening!

This stunner joined my closet and was graciously sent by the wonderful Lavie team.


What have you been up to lately?

Personal Style | Fantasy

4 comments
Drifting into fantasy always makes me feel so dreamy. I like to think of it as that little happy place that you mentally allow yourself to travel to when reality seems to overwhelm. It is the very same stuff that post-lunch day-dreaming in the classroom was made of. Getting lost in a fantasy makes me feel almost weightless and exuberant; where the clouds are made of candy floss *not unlike a Katy Perry video* and where the warm glow of the sunset never ends. When fantasy intermingles with reality, that is what fantasies are truly made of.

I'm transitioning in life right now, and that feeling of pure, exuberant weightlessness is upon me. There is nothing more fulfilling than watching everything you have ever done blur the lines between fantasy and reality, making it nothing short of a dream. And with a smokey eye, flowing maxi and some sparkles, you will be dressed for the occasion.

Style Files | Are fashion rules made to be broken ?

5 comments
One sunny morning when I am about to step out for the day, the daily "what will I wear" conundrum arises. Horizontal stripes? No, they will make my waist look wider. A jumpsuit maybe? I definitely do not have the height to carry it off. What about that skirt with those shoes? Of course not, those colours will clash. Eventually, it seems like I've come to the point where I've stopped choosing my outfits and rules of fashion have started  doing it for me instead!

Personal Style | Queen of hearts

2 comments
 My mind has wandered to the days of yore; of stone walled castles, queens in their palaces and traditionalism galore. While the kings and their castles slowly faded, the values of the ages never did. Centuries later; traditionalism still lingers on, in our lives, in our careers and even in our dressing. It can be deep-rooted and wise but at some point, it can be rigid and orthodox too.
That is why, you and me; we are queens of our very own hearts. We listen to our own whims and fancies. We can choose to eat a burger at 3am if we want. We can be activists, designers, scientists and professional athletes if we feel like it. We can enjoy an evening in with the family and still dance the night away at the party. We can pair that hat with those shoes and even if they aren't the perfect match, we can still own it. Most importantly, we listen to our own hearts and do just as it pleases.

This flowing maxi with a cut-work bustier and printed blue piping is so light and summer and is the perfect fit for a queen who loves casual chic. Giving traditionalism a shrug, I've paired the resplendent dress with a heavy ethnic jewellery. It may be not a pairing you see too often but there is a certain magic in breaking the rules and loving the result of it. After all, a queen doesn't need a crown or a scepter, all she needs is confidence.
