American Apparel top and skirt

We also stopped by Boston to visit some family friends. By this point I was museum-ed out so we just wandered around the pretty town centre. These photos were taken in the Boston Public Garden where of course, we had to go on the swan boats and stop by the carousel. :)

Asos sunglasses
old dress from when I was younger
necklace and jacket from Singapore

So after a week in New York City, we went to Washington DC, so I could visit where I was born and my country's capital for the first time since I was a baby. These photos were taken in the Smithsonian Zoo. :)

Asos shirt
H&M shirt
Doc Martens
bag from Malaysia
H&M earrings
UO hat
mother's belt

An urban park created on an old elevated train track, what's not to love? The late afternoon sun, the great people watching, live music and colourful sights from a bird's eye view make for some experience! :)

Ps. Another apology for the lack of replies to comments, I have only snatched moments of internet to blog. I'll reply by the end of the week, promise.

Enriching my soul with art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art when my dad discovered he could take photos of me looking deeply at the art. :)

New York, New York







Asos dress and shoes
Bag from Malaysia
UO sunglasses
H&M necklace

The day after my last exam, we flew to New York, the first time I've been here since I was a baby and we moved to England. I've been here for just over a day and so far it has been very different to what I expected... :)

Shades of red



beaded elephant (worn as necklace pendant) from Kenyan elephant sanctuary
Topshop earrings
Urban Outfitters jumper
kurta from India

I wore this yesterday and C "almost didn't notice how many shades of red" I was wearing... which is a bit weird considering, you know, red is a very bright colour. And she was wearing all black. This wasn't entirely planned but colour blocking actually makes me quite happy. :)

Asos printed bomber jacket
Primark top, daisies painted by me
American Apparel disco pants
platform Converse
gifted rings
self-made necklace, inspired by Joan MirĂ³'s work

I was never really into the fancy bomber jackets trend because something about the combination of such a casual, heavy-duty shape and such delicate detailing didn't really work for me but my mom bought this jacket and I fell in love with the pattern (I think its butterflies and flowers) and purple is my favourite colour so I'm just gonna pretend this isn't very bomber-y shaped. Plus it this reminds me of my childhood sticker albums filled with glittery butterfly flowers. Sorry, did I say childhood? I still use and love those stickers! I'm also breaking pretty much every school dress code rule here but who cares; it's my penultimate day of ever being a student here. :)

Domino dancing

You might already know this but GOOGLE FRIEND CONNECT IS GOING TO DISAPPEAR! On the 1st July apparently (which is the day of my prom and I have a fab outfit planned). So if you follow me on your Google account, please either commit my URL to memory and remember to check back every two or three days, or take the sensible route and follow me on Bloglovin' (click the drawing to the right). I don't wanna sound like I'm self-promoting but yano, I'd hate for your lives to be deprived of me...

Anyway, back to the main point of this post.



gifted rings from either Topshop or Miss Selfridge, can't remember
my hands grown with love and care

I hadn't been able to wear nail varnish or rings for a couple of months because it was pointless when I was frantically painting everyday and taking rings off and losing them, so I'm enjoying the fact that I can now. And, after my last exam on Monday, I'll be able to wear rings big enough to not be able to write in, and not give a damn. :)

Ps. I'm sorry for being very slow at replying to comments recently, I've been scheduling posts and trying to avoid Blogger so I can actually do some revision, instead of spending all my time reading blogs which is what I normally do.

Build a rocket, boys

N's playsuit from Topshop
mother's blouse and necklace
Asos belt
Underground creepers
Topshop socks

I love potted plants. We have so many around the house because my parents used to be keen gardener. They go beautifully with this plaid playsuit I borrowed from a friend; so well in fact, that I didn't even need to edit these photos. :)

These adventures will fill your eyes

^ Elbow

I finally figured out how to use Bloglovin! You can now follow me on Google Friend Connect (at the bottom of my blog) or on Bloglovin (the drawing on the right) or both!






Topshop blouse
Asos skirt
earrings from an Indian store in Rusholme

It's really hot here. Maxis are somehow cooler than tiny little shorts and give me the opportunity to pretend I'm a sunlight angel instead of a student stuck indoors revising. The colours in these photos remind me so much of this post which I am shocked to realise were taken just over 3 years ago. In the same park actually. I still have and wear those clothes and my hair, although it has been through two drastic cuts and some blonde dip dye, looks almost the same. Crazy to think about. :)

mother's yukata
Topshop dress
vintage belt
Topshop earrings
Asos shoes

Disclaimer: This is not actually a kimono; it's a similar but lighter garment that I can't remember the name of. I tried to Google it but to no avail. Sorry! I've been thinking a lot about cultural appropriation and I'm still not sure what I think about it.... but this outfit looked so good and was just waiting to be worn... :)

Catch me if you can






old children's top from (you guessed it) Lake Tahoe
Asos skirt
Urban Outfitters sunglasses
platform Converse
old scrunchie

Impromptu photoshoots are often the best. As I was eating dinner, I looked up to see the last rays of the sun beaming in through the window so I bolted down the rest of my food and literally ran out of the door to catch the very last of the golden hour. And what luck, the sun filtering through the trees was exaclty in the right position and everything just fell into place. :)

Fun Fun Fun

Topshop playsuit via ebay
self-made necklace
remodelled Asos earrings
crop top (sari blouse) from India
Doc Martens

Contrary to what my photos might suggest, I'm not very outdoors-y, but the past few days we've had such beautiful weather that I've been biking, running and sunning around - and not only to avoid revision. Today I also made friends with these two little cuties. If every day is like this, summer is going to be heaven. :)



Ps. You can probably tell that I got my lens back, repaired and roaring to go. I'm a happy girl!
