A few weeks back I met Luke at a friend’s birthday party, who upon finding out that I’m such a great blogger (I’m joking!) invited me over to try his salon, Luke Jacob. I’m not one to say no to these things and after hearing good recommendations from my friend who usually goes there, I arranged a day and time to get my hair a much needed fix.

Style – Summer dress style tips

Spending the Summer in a city like London can sometimes pose its challenge: one day it’s sweltering hot, the next day is cool and rainy. I have been thinking about what would my style tips be for having a stylish and comfortable Summer in London and this is what I came up with:

Wear a versatile length – Regardless of what the weather is, Summer maxi dresses are here to save the day! They’re versatile and can be worn whether the days are on the hot or the cool side, all you need to do is layer up or down or wear a pair of comfortable sneakers or let your toes get some sun with a pair of sandals.

Comfort and style – One of the things I have come to appreciate ever since I moved to London, is the importance of comfortable shoes, as one ends up walking so much. Whether a pair of flat shoes, sandals or sneakers (my current favourites), I can’t live without flats anymore. It’s not a problem, as they can be just as stylish as heels.

Wellbeing starts from the inside –  When it’s hot and especially if you have to go underground (Central Line, eurgh), make sure to stay well hydrated and carry a bottle of water with you at all times. Do like me and get a cute bottle with binchotan charcoal in it to filter out impurities – it’s great!

There’s always the sun – Well, we’re talking about London so using the word ‘always’ might be a bit of an overstatement. However, when it comes out, it can be quite strong. As such, don’t forget to wear a hat (animal ears optional, haha) and the good old sunscreen.

Outfit details: Maxi Dress – c/o JD Williams; Flectarn Shirt – German army, purchased at the Mauerpark flea market last year; Brooch Selection – cat from Les Nereides, rhinestones was my nan’s and the bow was a gift; Animal Ears Cap – Ebay; Sneakers – New Balance, via TK Maxx; Tote Canvas Bag – Uniqlo x Kaws collaboration; Tassely Socks – H&M (have had them for years).

Style – Mom Jeans

These pics were taken a while ago (yeah, I was still wearing gloves then) but I cannot not use them because:

a) It’s Spring but it’s still kinda cold so I can still get away with showing so many layers
b) I like them and I was happy on that day
c) Mom jeans

Style – Joy to the world

March 23, 2016

Recently I headed down to South London and had a great time taking photos of my friend Ross (will share these when they can go public) and exploring an area of town that I’d never visited before. These skate parks are great to be used as backdrops for photo shoots and it was amusing that we weren’t the only ones who had the same idea. Regardless, there was enough room for everyone and even managed to snap a few photos of a couple of random girls, who asked us to take their photo. I obviously had to step in and take one with my camera.

What else is new? Not much, except for the fact that I’ve gone back to work full time and things are slowly going back to normal. I’ve been busy with creative projects as much as possible, focusing on the things that I love doing. I also wrote and illustrated something about social media for bloggers for Talented Talkers and a piece on illustrated Vogue covers for the new online magazine for bloggers Bloggeration (of which I am now art editor, yay!).

Seems like we caught Robbo working on his piece of art!

There will be more exciting things to share but all in due time… For now, just enjoy the street art and I hope you like my new Spring dress (I can’t get over how cute the hearts on the collar are).

this was a really nice day out and I loved doing photos at this place. What other spots would you recommend in London for photo shoots that I should try?

PS: A big thank you to Ross for snapping my photos and finding this amazing place!
