With a sudden longing for the return of Downtown Abbey and BBC’s Sherlock, I’ve found myself gravitating towards a very English sense of style for back to school. (Of course, with my own twist!)
Although, I don’t think I’m the only one that’s been craving some anglophilia! Even our favourite…
With the sunnier end of Spring approaching, I was on the hunt for a perfume with lighter notes. During winter, my collection consist of J’adore, No.5 or Belle D’Opium. Which means, they’re highly unsuitable for warmer temperatures - at least for someone who’s prone to migraines.
S haranya and I love doing hairstyles that look effortless but really, they took an hour to do. Come Spring/Summer, our patience drops down the drain and we really can’t be bothered - we just want all that hair to be out of the way.
We came across these really cool illustrations done by Samantha…
Feels like ages since Sharanya and I have shared a song with you guys!
Here’s a song that the two of us have been obsessed with. We first heard it on Sara du Jour’s blog and it’s been on a loop ever since!
The Middle East is an Australian band and you can purchase their album on iTunes.
P.S. If you guys get chance, check out Sara’s blog - she’s amazing!
Since its launch, Swedish watch brand, Daniel Wellington has made its own niche in the world of horological finery. It’s also become our latest obsession.
Shaji and I aren’t the kind of people that usually wear watches. Except when we remember that we have a collection buried in a…
Snippet Sunday is here!
Good gosh, seems like ages since I shared a good vimeo!
Take My Picture is a video documentary on the fashion revolution of the 2000s. With various forms of social media being created and expanded, blogging and fashion photography have become one and the same.
In 2006, it was estimated that every minute 9 blogs would come into existence with over 132,000 blogs abandoned after about a year or so.
That is almost nothing in comparison to the wave we have now. (Mostly, within North America and Malaysia.)
Most blogs, try to mimic content from sister blogs, while others set out to try and be individualistic. However, only some actually appeal to a wider audience.
Whether it’s an addition to your portfolio or a personal diary, there should be one thing in mind. Try to be yourself. Borrowing ideas won’t hurt, but if you’re trying to use those ideas to get ahead, think again.
GARAGE Magazine has done a fabulous job in capturing the other side of the looking glass. By applying the ideology behind blogs, they’ve succeeded in capturing the very essence of international fashion weeks.
There’s a lot more to the perfect and out-of-the-box appearances made by our favourite icons. What’s most interesting is seeing the cameraman capture women with empty purses, modelling down busy streets and simply wearing outfits for a chance to be photographed. Quite an increase in peacocking!
I’m not saying that I don’t love it - because let’s face it, we thrive on these moments! It’s just hard to believe that there’s so much of it going on!
*Lesson Learned: Be yourself. Not matter how quirky or imperfect - perfect’s a bit too done and, eventually, passé.
*Favourite Quote: “I’m just thinking someone’s gonna get run over - someone’s gonna get trampled…”
*Favourite Shot: Anna Dello Russo prancing around with 10 photographers trying to attain a spontaneously captured moment.
We know that we’ve already done a Sound Sunday post, but consider this Tunes Tuesday!
Sharanya and I have been obsessed with The Script for a while and have been meaning to do a post on them for ages. God knows why we kept forgetting.
We both agree that Six Degrees of Separation is probably our favourite track off their entire album. Time to add #3 to our music collection - 3 as in their album…yes that’s what it’s called.
For more exclusive news and tracks, check out the band’s official website.
With spring just around the corner, you’d think that the weather would start to liven up a bit more….apparently, I’m wrong.The weather, here in Canada, has been incredibly unpredictable but not to the point where I’m confused about how I should dress.Fashion month just finished and the biggest trend for the next year is black and white. Which is basically a dream come true for me since, 70% of my closet consists of these two shades. This entire year is made up of practically everything I love. Riveting red lips, statement jewellery and interesting prints!Speaking of interesting prints, has anyone taken a look at the Uniqlo x Celia Birtwell collection? I’m in love with the collared blouses and the Ossie Clark-inspired dresses - though I wish she’d included her Mademoiselle print.Right, back to the mood board….well it’s raining here and I’m contemplating revamping my wardrobe. My obsession with hats died down after I started university…that is, until now. And, I guess I’m trying to find ways to incorporate them back into my closet. So, what’s a day out without a cute scarf to keep your neck warm and an alternative to ballet flats?
Oh wow…just got a bunch of follower emails - THANKS YOU GUYS!
But, I’m not really on this blog as much as I am on the blog that my sister and I started.
Though, I do update occasionally on this blog! Kinda turns into my diary so if wanna hear my ramblings….. :P
Check us out on Double the Anomaly!
I sit here and I think of nothing but the future. Exhausted from studying with very little attention span and a fear of failing. Knowing that I could strive and succeed if I put my mind to it - yet, here I am.
How do you know if you’re travelling along the right path? How do you know that this is what you’re supposed to be doing?
Not a second goes by when I haven’t thought of that. I want, so badly, to be confident and sure of who I am, what I am and what I’m doing….except the fear and anxiety kills me every time. Fear is an accumulated behaviour - nothing but the product of our own thoughts and choices…but, why does it harness me in such a way?
Why does it inhibit my every thought process, decision - action?
I want nothing more than to be rid of these heavy burdens - no number of discussions can help me in doing so.Not yet on the verge of crying but, yearning to have a moment to myself to just break down with no expectations of being the strong girl that my mother wants me to be. Who do I speak to? Who do I expel the contents of my mind/heart to?
Sometimes, I go to sleep dreading what may come in the morning. I catch myself being hypocritic/ironic - sitting here writing this post to no one in particular, instead of using what little time I have to “strive and succeed”.
Should money & success even define a person? Their life?
What if this isn’t what I’m supposed to be doing? What if, all I want to do is breathe, experience, travel, spread love and remain content? I feel like I should be making a difference in the world - yet, why am I here?
Will I never be able to get out of this rut? Do I just need a change in scenery? I don’t know. I’ll never know.
We have very little time in our lives, and before you know it, you’ve grown up and outlived your initial dreams. Am I depressed and frustrated? No. I’m simply stuck in a personal limbo.
If only I could find that yellow brick road again…
