Yeti in the City!

16 Dec

Happy Friday everyone! 🙂 Today is a wonderful day – it’s my first official day of HOLIDAY (yay!) and I’m flying home to New Zealand tonight! I’m going to be spending Christmas with my family, and it’s been so long since we were all together so I’m really looking forward to it! Plus it’s almost summer in NZ so I am planning on spending a lot of time at the beach, hehe 🙂 It will be strange doing ‘summer’ outfit posts in the middle of Northern Hemisphere winter, but I’m excited to show you guys photos from around Auckland – it’s beautiful! 🙂 In other very exciting news – my new site is finally up and running! 🙂 I am so so happy with it, and want to say a huge big THANK YOU to my amazing boyfriend for helping me make it all happen 🙂 What do you guys think?? 🙂 Before I sign off, here is a quick post of my new jacket  – it’s very very fluffy/hairy and makes me look like a chicken if I’m not careful but I love it all the same! haha 😉 Next time I post it will be from NZ – until then, hope you all have a lovely Friday! 🙂 Photo credit goes to Adriana– thank you so much babe! 🙂 Jacket: Zara / Woollen jumper: Uniqlo / Jeans: Zara / Wedge booties: Spring / Sunnies: Karen Walker / Bracelets: markets / Bird skull necklace: Fashionology / Nailpolish: Chanel Peridot ♥B xx

Soak up the sun

14 Dec

I love finding new cafes and restaurants to try – it keeps life interesting, and in Beijing there are tempting new restaurants constantly springing up around the place! On Saturday we decided to try Le Petit Gourmand, a cafe nestled in Tongli Studios behind Sanlitun Village – and it didn’t disappoint! Lovely and cosy, with tasty, fresh food – it was the perfect place to enjoy a long, lazy Saturday lunch 🙂

With the sun shining it was also a chance for me to take my new shoes out for a walk! hehe 🙂 Apparently a lot of other people decided it was the perfect day for taking photos – there were photographers everywhere! A huge big thank you to my talented (and gorgeous!) friend, Adriana for helping me take these photos. I managed to snap a quick one of her too – isn’t she so cute? Love her headband! See you all again tomorrow 🙂 Continue reading

Leopard print pants!

2 Dec

Today it finally started snowing in Beijing! Winter is really and finally here! 🙂 And to celebrate, here is a post of my new leopard print jeans hehe 🙂 I love these – I totally wasn’t sure when I saw them in the store, but they are actually a more subtle shade than other pairs I’ve seen and are super warm to boot! What do you think of them?

I wore this outfit to watch Beijing Improv’s 5th Birthday show, where two of my friends performed. Have you been to an improv show? The shows are HILARIOUS and the actors are not afraid to look silly in front of an audience! 🙂 I was almost crying from laughing too hard at one point! If you’re in Beijing, I would totally recommend going along to one of their shows – the Penghao Theatre is a cute little place tucked into a hutong off Nanluoguxiang, a great place to explore in it’s own right!

On another note, if you use Weibo (China’s version of Twitter) you can follow me here – I’m able to update and post pictures much more easily/frequently! (I still update Twitter, but since it’s technically blocked it’s a little harder!). Hope you’re having a wonderful Friday, bring on the weekend! 🙂

Lovely light

21 Nov

Hello lovely readers, a happy Monday to you all! 🙂

Another weekend has already come and gone yet again! Though at least this time I managed to enjoy a much more quiet, reasonably paced two days catching up on movies and books. I just finished reading Water for Elephants, which is a great read!

Here are some photos taken before my AnyShopStyle shoot last week as the last of the sun was fading – the so-called ‘golden hour’. The light was so pretty, and I took a few (cheesy) pictures around the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology, hope you like them! 😉

Red pants

17 Nov

Found these fantastic pants at Zara, aren’t they awesome! Been wanting some red pants for ages, but bright bright red is not really my thing.. so these are perfect! They are this lovely deep, almost red-wine red colour and the material is kinda shiny with a silky/slippery feel, and they’re so comfortable! I paired them with one of my big cosy pullovers and voilà, comfy winter outfit! Unfortunately however, I forgot to wear something black underneath, and the camera totally picked up my white singlet… doh! Such an amateur! Haha oh well, lesson learned! 🙂 Yesterday was one of those grey, miserable days choking with pollution, so we decided to shoot these pics in the warm, friendly, fluorescent glow of a shopping mall instead! 😉

Just watched 127 Hours the other day.. what an incredible story of survival! Have you seen it? It’s still praying on my mind.. that guy is incredible, what a traumatic situation to be in! I must make sure not to take my limbs for granted anymore… and to always tell someone where I’m going! Cheery thoughts for a wintery afternoon I know… haha 🙂 Happy Thursday all!

Alien Street

11 Nov

Just around the corner from where I work is a market with the best name: ‘Alien Street’. Isn’t that a great name!? 🙂 I think that this was maybe a term referring to non-Chinese back in the day which is pretty hilarious… after all, the market is always full of foreigners hunting for fake or cheap consumer products! We found a spot of sunshine outside Alien Street and decided to snap a few quick pics, with me in another ‘I’m going to pretend because it’s sunny, it’s warm and not really almost winter’ outfit.. haha 🙂

TGIF, am soo looking forward to the weekend! Saturday is going to be a big day, as I’m involved in two pretty exciting events which I am looking forward to sharing with you! What plans do you have for the weekend? Be safe & see you again tomorrow! 🙂

A mellow Friday

6 Nov

Happy Sunday folks 🙂 Am about to collapse into bed after another lovely weekend! But first, a few outfit pics from my Friday night. We had a (much needed) pretty mellow evening starting with dinner at an amazing Yunnan restaurant, In & Out, followed by the movies where we saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes! How cute are apes?! Ok maybe cute is not the right word considering how large and powerful they are but still, they are amazing animals – loved the movie! hehe 🙂

Another week starts tomorrow, and I’m looking forward to all the things it will bring me! 🙂 Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday!  Continue reading
