FETCH AWAY




If you've heard that Mykonos was a party island, let's just put it like this: out of Greece's 6000 islands (6000. 6000!), there is no way you're traveling to this one and don't find yourself on the dance floor just about 20 minutes later. Within the 48 hours I spent on this city, I expanded my dream boat Isabel Marants (silver in this story, but found in black here) dancing to a Despacito. I can confirm most allegations of Mykonos, as well as the fact that Greek food, regardless of the island, will never go wrong with me. Olive tapanade, spanikopita, feta, olives, feta & feta, it's all beyond good. Generously hosted by the Farfetch crew, we traveled around to visit the mills, the sunsets, the clubs and the beaches. All resulting in this compilation of photos, I've been so excited to share as they also document a love story that I have with this polkadot Jacquemus blouse. A fan of his work and mind since he entered the scene of colourful, innovative minimalism, this is sure to be one of my wardrobe staples this year.

VISUAL SENSES








































Boy, has May flown by like a cheetah on caffeine! Things have been running fast behind the scenes, however contradictory it is, it's left me with quite a bit of catch up work with the blog. That said, I'm so excited to share the most recent projects I've been working on, including the quick jump to Mykonos, a day away with a glorious British designer and overall general passion projects that have been waiting for their time. Being a true lover of the idea phase, I easily get caught in my own intention, meaning I'll happily just go over my own content for ages without sharing it anywhere. Defeats the purpose of blogging you may say, and I can only agree, but aside from a non-stop internal indecisive creative monologue, I wanted to share with you one of the coolest London spots for brunch (hello subject change!). I've long been a fan of the Grind chain (where I've made awesome friends like Charles & Monwar), and already known for their picturesque interior, Clerkenwell Grind is perhaps the one to take the prize. With their pink velvet chairs and blue velvet couches, it's quickly made a solid presence to Instagram, and if you so happen to be into great coffee, an extensive brunch menu and staff that've made it into my friend group, definitely go check them out.

ALL ABOUT THE BASE


Some stunt London is pulling at the moment. London is currently in that weird in between stage, something like what you had with that hot 'n' cold crush around 3 months ago, who over-did it on the V-necks and the selfies on Instagram. Ask it to commit to either hot or cold, it won't. In these temperamental situations, I've always been advised to style around the classics, which is in my opinion is the best way of flirting with the new season. Fluent in Italian handcraft as well as British design, I've been so excited to style around two classic timeless styles by Russell & Bromley. First up the classic court shoe in navy with a thick heel and pointed toe (ouh oui!) to go with a blazer worn over a mini-skirt or as the perfect feminine touch to a co-ord. Secondly the never-go-wrong patented black loafer. Thank goodness this style wandered its way over to women's footwear, so we cold wear it right with wrapped gingham skirts paired with white shirts not to mention boyfriend jeans (stay tuned).

FEELING GREEN



I have zero idea as to why I've been sitting on this post for so long. I am not a multi-tasker as it happens, and quite easily distracted, if say, a squirrel passes my window. Most likely an idea for another post came up whilst piecing this together, and although this whole thing is bright blinking GREEN (my favourite colour, FIY), it somehow traveled its way from the top of my mind to the back. So if you're still with me, we need to rewind back to beautiful Melbourne, where I, ohhhh yesss, found a brilliant second hand green silk suit. Perhaps the exacts specifications of what my dreams are made of, alongside cream and butter.

After the whole blog-scare of my blog evaporating before my eyes last weekend, I'm feeling really excited to revisit some of the old content I'd only drafted and finally share it with you guys. I hope you're having a great weekend, and there'll be another post following this one shortly!

J FOR JINX

Alright, let's just mention the elephant in the room and comment on the irony of the opening line of my previous post.. "Blog post roll", she said. "Let's do a glitch in her domain and wipe out her website" the World Wide Web responded teasingly. And teased I was, manifesting itself as a pounding headache in the centre of my head and having me circle around a new mantra: "I'm not saving lives. I'm not saving lives". If you have no idea what I'm talking about (which I hope for the following reason), my blog was ZzzZZzZzZzz for the first time in its 7 old years from the time-space from Friday till last night, where it after hours and hours and hourzzz spent on the phone during what in idealistic theory could have been a somewhat relaxing extended bank holiday weekend finally came back live. So yes yes. I jinxed it. And jinx wasn't exactly a phrase I knew from Denmark, which is perhaps why I've been throwing jinxes around me like confetti. That's it. I'm stopping. Or, I'm sthtoppin'. Because fwom now on, I'm holdin' ma' tong.
