Sad to see more physical book stores going! This one was Reader’s Digest.

Tom and i headed out to the CBD last friday. We left at 4.30pm, to which my mother inquired: “are you going clubbing?” and took the bus down to what was originally going to be just collecting my 120 film from my diana camera. Instead, we ended up collecting my film, successfully finding Yu-U on flinders lane (has anyone been? it’s underground with a few frosty and shady looking cellar like windows and a signless door. So scary but so cosy inside. Anyway it was booked out so we ended up having some yum cha dumplings at Chinatown, followed by a trip to a lollyshop to buy a bag full of assorted sour lollies and some seafood curry laksa at Red Silks.
We stopped by JB Hi-Fi where i snapped a shot of an headphone brand’s slogan ‘when it’s too late to be loud – late night gaming’. When we went to catch the bus, we realised we had missed it and ended up dawdling around in big w, where i got a $1 tube of bubble liquid which gave me the funnest half hour of my week :)
These photos were taken at the bus stop, where i bumped into my high school chemistry teacher jogging, on the bus and out and about in the city. I was testing out different modes for night time photography and hence the bountiful amounts of happy snaps. Outfit photos were by tom :) Sadly, we didn’t get any photos together, i forgot to pack my other lens with me. We also forget to check out the weekly Friday night fireworks happening at the Docklands, oh well!


Lastly, i’ve been receiving some lovely artistic mail in the inbox lately but i always seem to forget to publish them on my blog, here’s a beautiful drawing by Ester (thankyou so much ♡), have a peep! To see the rest of the album, just check here!

The other day my sister and i went out to our local Pizza Hut to grab a quick lunch to eat at the park. Super supreme, my favourite one. We fought mother nature as we ate our pizza. An ant tried to join us and every now and then there would be a gush of wind. There was also a bee stalking us for our entire meal and i was thoroughly paranoid, apparently it was because i was wearing bright colours :( 
We took quite a few snaps and here are some of my favourite photos! I’ve been taking my camera out with me more often than normal as i’ve finally braved the thought of carrying a 1kg (i swear) heavier load in my bag and the stares that i get when i whip it out. It’s not even big for a dslr..! The outfit photos are by my sister, the other ones are by me – she wouldn’t let me post any photos of her though. I really like the spider web photo in particular (i almost walked into it!) i took while experimenting with manual focus.

These boots of mine have been getting quite a bit of a bashing lately, they’re pretty much the only flat ankle boots i own and are also the first pair of vintage boots i had ever bought, i got them off Etsy :) They have been scuffed so much at the front that no polish or anything is ever going to make them look perfect anymore, i think it’s time for me to hunt down another pair as these have really served me well, it’s been almost two years since i’ve had them!

Today i got a lovely surprise in my inbox today, a lovely drawing by Abby, i always love receiving drawings, drawing is something i’ve never been capable of mastering!

People always seem to ask me questions about myself etc, so here’s another recent interview i’ve done – i was Nuffnang’s July blogger of the month and you can check out some questions i’ve answered here! Also, a few other recent features – on the Supre blog here, and issue 3 & 4 of ALEXIS Magazine Singapore – will share some photos soon!

And to any school students reading my blog, all the best for term 3 :)

Vintage orange hair bow, blouse & jumper, personalised necklace, bag c/o Chicwish, Supre skirt, Romwe tights, ASOS wedges

Continuing on from yesterday, this is the outfit accompanying the necklace. It is a bit more black then what i normally wear as i tend to stray away from black since i have long black hair to begin with. My jumper is velvet and has tiny little strands of gold and green.. glitter? on it which is actually quite prickly to put on and touch. I added a pop of contrast via the vintage orange hair bow and pink tassel bag from Chicwish. I think this skirt is officially mine now, i wear it more than my sister and she seems to have happily settled on constantly borrowing my red skirt from this post. Actually, now that i think about it, we share wardrobes quite readily :)
