PLAIN, PLEASE



OFF GUARD

Now, I could so easily attach a bittersweet note to this post expressing my not-so-thrilled feelings towards the British take on summerweather. I wish there was someone to blame for sending out the wrong brief to the London weather: "JOE! THAT FILE WAS MEANT FOR THE FAROE ISLANDS!! NOW ALL OF UK HAS RAIN" Well, boss & Joe, you owe us Ibiza weather next year. Anyways, let's move on from a topic I can passionately talk about for hours..

For those who've read the blog for a while, you'll know that I love setting up and planning a shoot. Being both an absolute fan of well composed editorials and madly in love with photography as a an artistic medium, it has become more rare for me to shoot on days reserved for life-admin and catching up with close friends. Fashion takes a back-seat (although equally empowered by it, comfort is key on a perfect day off) and muting the pressure of my own ambition, there is no box to tick or media to update.

Still, my dear friend Ramon (who you'll see popping up on my SnapChat every now and then), took the camera one day after one of our weekly catch ups, and snapped these photos of me. I've procrastinated sharing them as they were just so... plain. Not the photos themself - kudos to the photographer - but the fact that I hadn't given my outfit, nor the location a thought that day. Anyways let it be known - I love to be plain, and although plain may not be an art form, it is to me an utter luxury I indulge in. Chips on the side.

EXTEND YOUR WEEKEND



MONDAY RAVE

What the world needs now is loads of love, and the weekend is just one of those perfect times to cut out the noise and unfold the good vibes. However, Monday always comes and who says we should stop the flow? Extend Your Weekend is a fabulous initiative started by Lipton Ice Tea, as an event series throughout London this summer to celebrate the weekend all the way into the beginning of the week and thereby eliminating any Monday blues.

Now, last week I got my tail feathers together to attend the Wake & Shake event at 7.00AM for a Monday morning rave! Dancing in a massive crowd, all covered in glitter and vivid clothing, followed by intimate groups of yoga and massage sessions, I started this week in a pretty epic manner, if I may say so myself. Now wouldn't it be amazing if we could start every week in an saturated explosion of good vibes, glitter and (if you scroll down) HUGS!

The events will be continuing through this summer, but I'm personally voting for this to be a year round recurring event. More glitter, please!

WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW



IS EACH OTHER

After a weekend that has played on all of my emotions here in London, I'm feeling incredibly numb following this week's political events and worried for our future. We face so many challenges in today's world, but I truly believe that these can only successfully be overcome when we unite. If you follow me on twitter (username for all of my social media is @srhmikaela) you will know how I feel about what has happened here. I have so many feelings on this subject, opinions I desperately want to express, but I'll hold my words until I can phrase it more accurately to match my true opinions.

Although I find it difficult to change the topic, or continue any dialogue at all, I wanted to share these photos from Brighton Dome, where I went together with the lovely Kat Terek. Beginning as the Prince Regent's riding house and stables over 200 years ago, it now holds loads of cultural events with music and dance as its core. Brighton is such a wonderful city, and I always make sure to go through the Dome park when I go, where it never fails in having someone playing guitar somewhere.

URBANITE ESCAPE




TIME FOR THE SEASIDE

Being a Londoner by choice, going to the seaside quickly becomes a symbol of luxury offering the urbanite an opportunity to just enjoy a moment of joyful peace. I'm easily persuaded to go, as long as there's a) sunscreen within a short reach and b) ice cream within an even shorter reach. Thankfully Brighton offered both of these this weekend, when I took my newest bathing suit for a first plunge in the British ocean of this year. I was so close to getting this one in black, but I given that Leo won an Oscar this year, and the return of Star Wars, I felt this would be the year of gold. 

The South coast of Britain is so worth a visit if you're in close proximity, and even if not, I hope you get a chance to go to the seaside somewhere for a plunge whilst summer's still around us. I hope you get to enjoy every second of your summer and that you take this time to enjoy your accomplishments instead of the distance from your goals. Summer is about soaking up the things around us that truly make us happy in life and not least storing up on those sunny memories to think back to when winter comes.

ROYAL EXCHANGE



BACK

A week long hiatus! BY GOLLY, what's she been up to?! Let me tell you, I've ticked off a few firsts, and unfortunately none include much sleep, Finding Dory or other holiday related activities. I've been running around trying to tick off things on the mile long papyrus roll I have with to-do's. I can assure you, that I've been working on a lot of content which shall all be shared on here soon together with free pizza vouchers.

Finally had the right opportunity to air these beauties (talkin' bout the shoes, people!) on a sunny day out with the awesome Kat by Royal Exchange, reminding me that there are so many areas of London I yet have to explore. The sunny days have been hiding away, with weather forcing me into wellies a lot lately, this has however sparked the 5-year-old inside me. Make sure to follow along on SnapChat (username: srhmikaela) for puddle jumping and other adventures.
