What I'm currently lusting after...

Zara Kids' this season is giving me life. There's simply too many pieces that I'm obsessed with. Oh, special shoutout to my mom for buying + sending me clothes from Zara Kids' Hong Kong! I needed some fresh new wardrobe update as I've been giving away and donating my clothes to charity. I probably threw out more than I should but ugh, I wanted to deep-clean and streamline my wardrobe.



The weather's getting increasingly gloomy here in Manchester and it's making me moody AF. I also feel like I'm stuck in a rut and am unsure about everything. I think I need some sun.

On another note, I'm also missing the little twins a lot... I just FaceTimed my cute lil cousins and OMG, they can really hold a conversation now. They. Are. Just. So. Freaking. Adorable. 😫 ← my face when I see them!

2. Masculine coat £49.99 - I tried this coat in red and I fell in love with it but obviously, I have yet to purchase it cause I have learned self-control over the years πŸ™„
4. Pleated trousers £12.99

I am #uninspired

The lack of inspiration is largely one of the reasons why I've sort of turned this space into more of a food and lifestyle blog. I do still enjoy writing about fashion, in fact, I do so actively over at The Fashion Network but when it comes to my own digital space... I simply can't bear to write about or of fashion due to the lack of inspiration. My old blog used to contain wish lists, runway inspo, mood boards and other various fashion-related posts but I have no wish to return to creating those type of content. Not for now anyway. It may be because I'm simply more critical of myself with what I create but I think it's due to just how saturated the fashion blogging sphere is. There's so much out there that I think everything lacks authenticity and originality.

Everything right now is all just meh to me πŸ™„.

Quick update:

It's been nearly three weeks since I've handed in my thesis and I can't say I've done much since. Oh I went for an eyelash perm (love the results btw!) and I've been actively trying various products to clear my skin since all the stress-related breakout. I'm so glad it's slowly working 😊!

I recently stumbled across this new opening with my brother and we couldn't be happier! Located just outside of Chinatown in Manchester, The Department of Coffee has all the ~vibes~. I'm obsessed with their interior!! Why? Because most of Manchester lack aesthetics πŸ™„. Also, how good did these photos turn out? My trusty old iPhone 6 + Photoshop express combo is giving me life right now.

Overall rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Quick update:

I've handed in my Masters' thesis and I am super relieved it's all over now. Officially... I'm unemployed πŸ™ƒ but currently interning over at The Fashion Network. I'm at this weird place where I just want to do nothing and everything at the same time. It's all a bit too confusing but oh well.

As part of my master's project, I'm gathering consumer opinion on fashion advertisements produce by Gucci, Tom Ford and Dolce & Gabbana. If you would like to participate in this research, please fill in this questionnaire ❤️. Your input will be greatly appreciated and put to good use in the name of academia!

Beaumont Organic, 49 Hilton Street

Quick update:

With less than three weeks to go before my master's project deadline, you can pretty much say that I am about to enter the full panic mode in... well, right about now. Besides working on my thesis every day, I've been going to the office at the Old Granada Studios - it's been so much fun! I can't believe I'm saying this but going to actual work is immensely better than writing a super lengthy academic work πŸ˜…. *gasp* I'm such a grown-up!

I got the opportunity to attend Beaumont Organic's sample sale a couple of weeks ago. I love their quality and their fabric but sadly - as with most brands - I couldn't find anything in my size.
