Style to survive long periods in air-condition lectures...


"Style is everything. It helps you get up in the morning. It helps you get down the stairs. It's a way of life. " - Diana Vreeland

Figuring out what to wear each day to uni gets complicated more by the fact that sometimes the class rooms have particularly cold air conditioning compared to the temperatures outside. This outfit was for a day I had six hours of consecutive lectures in particularly chilly class room, so comfort and adaptability to temperatures was paramount. My basic formula for days like this is cotton pants/leggings (comfort + warmth), short sleeved shirt (cool for outside), jacket/cardigan (warmth),  and bag (to carry all sorts of academic stuff, but more importantly food). 

tote bag - Kikki K
pants - Cotton On
Jacket c/o ChoiesTkikkiy
shoes - baby blue converse
watch - May28th

That day at uni went surprisingly fast, and wasn't at all like I was dreading. Our course coordinator even went to the cafe and bought us all coffee! One of the perks of being part of a small course I guess!

Hope everyone is enjoying the Easter holidays and making the most of the long weekend! I've been productive in bloggy things, but tomorrow will have to have an assignment focus!

18 year old handbag queen


"Those unforgettable moments"
- Pandora 

I was 12 when I first discovered pandora bracelets in a local jewellery store. I always loved the idea of a bracelet full of memories, and since a young age always longed for a charm bracelet like my mothers. But there was something I found even more beautiful and enchanting about  Pandora bracelets. They held the perfect combination of classic elegance, modern taste and simple everyday design. My mum told me I had to wait till my 18th birthday to have one, which at the age of 12 seemed forever away. And yet here I am, 18 already!! And as promised, with my perfect pandora bracelet. I was spoilt rotten by all my family and feel so incredibly lucky. My Auntie and Uncle gave me the silver bracelet and my Mum, Dad and sister picked out my very first bead for me.

Ever since I was a little girl my family has called me the 'Handbag Queen'. Even as a toddler I always felt the need accessorise every outfit with a bag (such a wise young thing).  So it was only fitting that my first bead resembled a mini pandora handbag. Pandora jewellery is beautifully made and I have been wearing this gorgeous thing everyday since my birthday!
