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

Zara Camel Coat

13 Dec

The sunshine and blue skies which lasted 5 days this time (a record!!) has again disappeared behind a cloud of fog which, as you can see from these pictures, makes everything look a bit grey – but at least it’s still not miserably cold yet, that’s something! 🙂

I love this camel coat and am wearing it almost every day – so glad I invested in this at the beginning of fall! I’ve also had incredible wear out of these ankle booties – their CPW (cost per wear) is getting ridiculously low! Hooray, success! 🙂 Honestly, where would I be without Zara? Reasonably priced, great clothes which I totally love – it’s hard to resist doing all my shopping there! haha 🙂 What stores or brands do you guys find yourselves shopping at the most?

Lunch break is almost up.. time to get on with my day! See you all tomorrow 🙂

A white coat + red lanterns

9 Dec

On a freezing cold but beautifully sunny day, we wandered around Beijing’s wonderful hutongs  – on the hunt (as usual) for somewhere to eat! haha 🙂 These pics were taken around the Beixinqiao area, where the red lanterns hanging outside the restaurants looked so cheerful and happy against the bright blue sky!

My outfit was pretty casual – my big warm Mango jacket, biker boots, and some grey accessories to keep out the wind! This is the winter weather I love best, sunshine and crisp, fresh air 🙂 What are your plans for the weekend? It’s just over two weeks til Christmas, and I need to find something for our staff Secret Santa & Christmas party next week. I think I’m going to check out The Hutong’s Christmas Fayre on Sunday.. maybe I’ll find inspiration there! : ) Happy Friday all!   Continue reading

Polka dots + pencil skirt

24 Nov

Sun, glorious SUN! Yesterday was one of those brilliant, deep blue sky days which – despite an icey wind – made me feel so HAPPY to be alive!! 🙂 Here are a few pics of my outfit yesterday – taken by the lovely and ever patient Sally Benson (thanks babe!) 😉  A bit more formal yet fun for the office… polka dots rock, that’s all there is to it! Haha see ya tomorrow folks! 🙂 Continue reading

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!
