“Paris is always a good idea.” – Audrey Hepburn

Stripes are super simple, yet super elegant and chic looking. Paired with a polka dot print headband, a black statement necklace, skater skirt and black high tops, we have the perfect comfy chic outfit. I adore converse and think everyone should have a pair in their wardrobe.. They just go with everything and do a fine job of making any look more casual and daytime appropriate.

So Kimye recently got married in France and now they are on their honeymoon in Ireland. So what outfit is more French meets Irish than stripes and converse? This one!! Well, ok maybe this isn’t the first one that would pop into your mind but… I thought this was cute. Plus, it kinda makes me feel like I’m in Paris, walking down a Boulevard holding a croissant in one hand and using the others to push down my sunglasses so I can admire all the cute boys.. *ahem*

Anyhoo, this outfit is just super simple but makes you feel completely put together and ready to face the day with a bright smile and positive attitude!

A Taste of Summer

A Tastw of Summer

My eyes were nearly fried this morning it was so bright in my room. And that with my blinds down. Which can only mean one thing: the dull clouds have finally given up and are letting the beautiful sun come out.
And I could not be happier. So to start of the wonderful and sunny day, I squeezed some fresh oranges and sliced some Carambola (otherwise known as star fruit ) which is just so pretty. Plus it tastes incredible. Like a fruity explosion in your mouth. It just reminds me of a tropical paradise.
And for a brief moment, when the sun was shining so bright that I could hardly see, and my mouth could taste the sweet oranges, I almost believed that I was in the Carribean. But then I opened my eyes and *poof* it was all gone.
But hey, we all get to dream.
Now that exams are finally over and the heat is rollin’ in, it’s time to dig out those über cute shorts and sandals and get ready for the Summer!!

A new Starbucks recently opened up near me, which I thought was a REALLY awesome idea at the time.. now not so much. I’m not much of a coffee lover, so I didn’t think i’d be going in so much,  but I have been obsessed with the Vanilla Bean Creme, Double Chocolate Chip and Strawberries & Cream Frappuccino. Oh My Freakin Goodnesss they are so good… and don’t even get me started on their teas… I honestly don’t even know how I lived a life without them! 

Plus, they introduced a new drink…….. The Coconut Mocha!!! Coconut!!! Coconut!!! I LOVE Coconut!!! It is literally summer in a drink.. so delicious. Oh and those coconut shavings on the creamy goodness that they call whipped cream is heavenly.

I’ve also been sooo obsessed with Essie’s Mod Squad and white Converse. But  I think every girl is when summer rolls around. Paired with a pair of comfy fitting jeans and a basic tee, the perfect summers outfit is sorted!

“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”

So it’s only Tuesday and I’m already sooo done with this week. Plus it doesn’t help that I have exams right now.
As I was in an exam today, it really surprised me to see the usually high-heeled, lipgloss wearing girls sporting sweats and Nike free runs. Plus no makeup. It was actually really refreshing to see.
But….. Style is a way to express who we are and in that exam hall, with everyone wearing comfy sweats, we all seemed the same. While that’s also not that bad, standing out of a crowd can be a good thing.
Personally, I’ve gone through many style phases, some more questionable than others, but I’m finally finding my own personal style that I feel comfortable in. I’ve been really inspired by some of the new trends this spring, but also the classy ones.
I’ve also started a journal. A place to add quotes, inspirational messages, snapshot memories and whatever else my heart desires.
And of course, I’ve totally become obsessed with Starbucks Vanilla Bean Crème. So what’s new??

Dreaming of…..

Dreaming of.....

It’s spring right now. Or so I’ve been told. You’d never know by looking at the rainy, grey and miserable skies. Which means the days spent wearing crop tops, cute sandals and strolling through the park are a long way away. So one can only dream. Dream of blue skies, whipped ice-cream, the sun rays and floral print dresses. Waking up to the warmth of the sun. And of course the beach. And the crashing waves. And the tan that you’ll be get while wearing that super cute new bikini. And of course, watching cute boys surf.
Those days cannot come soon enough….
