Travelogue- Zurich (Part 2) – Fun and Hip!

Forgive my radio silence… it was because I had been travelling and working …bad news is I haven’t been updating for a month.. (which I just realized..).. while good news is meaning there will be more hopefully interesting posts to be uploaded in the coming week before christmas! Last few posts I mentioned that my swiss holidays are never ending, and it is still and will be on-going. Switzerland is a place that I fell in love with.

London Fashion Week SS15 Recap- Temperley London

One of my favourite designers in London is Alice Temperley. I have had the chance to meet Alice briefly once at a dinner, she is a very relaxed and beautiful woman, full of charm and talent. Last season her collection was gorgeous, so I was very excited when I received the invitation to see her SS15 show.

Wardrobe essential- pull on flat boots

OK – shoes. I have to say, a pair of black suede pull on flat boots are the world’s easiest shoes to wear. it simply goes with everything and anything. Problem is there is rarely a pair of comfortable and reasonably priced simple pull ons that can go with your wardrobe. But lately, I found this pair on one of my favourite online shops ASOS and I’ve been wearing it almost everyday with everything. Just to give you an idea, I like doing it my way- easy and comfortable. so I had been wearing them with my grey high waisted stretchy torn jeans (I ripped the other side of the jeans myself because I like it that way more), also from ...
