What I Wore : Week of 16th May, 2016

You can’t tell from the photo, but this sweatshirt says YALE. It is like a colourful, more psychedelic version of what probably exists for alumni, and I don’t know if the vintage shop made the version itself, or if some random person thought it would be cool to make alternations, or maybe it is authentic…

What I Wore : Week of 9th May, 2016

I joined my first London gym in 2013, and it was a swanky place near my work. I was by no means a morning person, but work friends gave me the motivation to attend 7am classes and then come into work. Packing everything the night before was always a bit of a nightmare; picking out my outfit, making sure…

What I Wore : Week of 2nd May, 2016

In the handful of years that I lived with my sister and we were the same size (she is 7 years older so it took me a while to catch up), it was really convenient sharing clothes, stealing clothes, essentially doubling my wardrobe. Throughout the years it has not been as easy, as most of…

Bath

  Bath is quintessentially British. With history going back to the Roman times, the baths were the main pull for me to visit, but I did encounter much more. The beautiful artchitecutre, the charming high street and the spas make this a perfect weekend getaway. STAY Loch Fyne Milsoms Hotel Wanting to stay close to…

What I Wore : Week of 25th April, 2016

I love going to Kingsland Mall aka Dalston Mall. This mall is more of an extension of Ridley Road Market, with kiosks where I am sure you can haggle your way down on the price of some Chinese luggage or a sectional couch. There are a few ‘Everything for £5’ stores, which end up having closing down…

What I Wore : Week of 18th April, 2016

Where were you when you found out that Prince died? I was at my desk, on Google Hangouts, and found out through IM. I was told so nonchalantly, in the middle of a chat about visas and immigration. I was stunned. Tears welled up in my eyes, and the world felt like it was shutting…

What I Wore : Week of 11th April, 2016

Birthday Week! I think there comes a time in your life when you stop fussing about your birthday. You enjoy the day, you live for yourself, and it’s not to please anyone but yourself. I had an incredible birthday this year, alone, having a fancy lunch, going to the cinema, having some cheeky daytime prosecco….

What I Wore : Week of 4th April, 2016

Whenever I go back to Canada to visit, it has become an important tradition to bring back something ‘Canadian’. But not obviously Canadian like a maple leaf t-shirt – it has to be more subtle: a Raptors tee, a Toronto Public Library shirt, an HBC tote bag – subtle Canadian. Some days it feels good to…

Copenhagen

  Copenhagen is a great place to be. It is effortlessly cool and trend setting, with the happiest looking attractive people that are the most chill. I have been there in the winter for the Christmas Markets and delicious glogg (mulled wine) and I have also been there in the spring, when the weather wasn’t that…

What I Wore : Week of 29th March, 2016

I went to visit my parents the week of the 22nd of March. I hadn’t seen them in a long time, and my mom nostalgically  wanted to do my hair, like when I was a kid. I had braids for so many years of my life, and after 20 years, I was over it and hated them;…

What I Wore : Week of 14th March, 2016

When my good friend came to visit London in March 2015 from Canada, she wanted to see all the things, and take advantage of London shops and fashions. Her cousin worked at a boutique which had this great sweater and when she told me she was going to buy it, I instantly wanted one too…

What I Wore : Week of 7th March, 2016

I used to wear short skirts exclusively. There is a rule that when you have your arms straight down your skirt should be below your fingertips, and in 2015 I decided that it was probably a good idea to start following this rule to be more ‘professional’ and to be taken ‘seriously’. I think deep down…
