NEW BALANCE TRAINERS

I have an obsession with New Balance trainers! They just look so cool and chic! And they go with pretty much every outfit. I am definitely saving up to get a pair of my own! Also I love that they come in so many different colour combos = beaut!

Note: I am not sure how good they are for doing actual exercise, but seen as I don’t this often should be ok for me. ūüôā Haha

recently? Yep, you guessed it 90s fashion is back and stronger than ever! For me, this is great. I love 90s fashion (apart from bucket hats) so I am happy I can now bring out things from my garage that I never thought I would wear again!

I love the natural swag and chic 90s outfits ooze that represent the independence and rebellious nature of the decade. Here are some cool memories below.

Why I am very hard to shop with…

I have to admit, I love meeting up with friends for a coffee, to go to a nice restaurant or for a night out but when it comes to shopping I definitely prefer to go alone. This is because when I am shopping I almost go into hunter mode. Like a hunter, hunting for its prey I am a shopaholic hunting for the best items in the shop. For that reason I tend to wander around the shop – I may do a quick scan and then analyse each section specifically or I might dive straight for the make-up section. Generally, I am anything but systematic about how I shop and therefore I find it hard to shop with other people. There. Confession Done.

Anyway I was coincidentally shopping with my friend the other day (not my idea, i was late so I decided not to quarrel) and we were in H&M. Over the years I have generally been put off ¬†H&M i thought the quality was alright but the style was boring and slightly outdated. However when I visited this H&M store a few days ago most of the stuff seemed to be quite good. I spotted a few smart long dresses and this weird sea green and yellow collection that I was seemingly fixated on. However, like most people who going shopping post-Christmas/New Years my friend was all about the Sales. Sidenote -> I have noticed that recently I can’t really be asked for the Sale section because it is always:

1) messy

2) cramped

3) hard to find your size and hard to restrain yourself from buying stuff just because its cheap

3) generally unpleasant

This is also why I don’t particularly like shopping in TK Maxx. So I kind of gave up trying to shop for myself that day and casually followed her around as we chatted away.

ANKARA

This was my first time experimenting with Ankara. This does not refer to the capital of Turkey but instead Ankara is a specific type of material, particularly used in Africa. It was fun but I didn’t have many tools (must get my sewing machine working).

Morocco

Recently, I was lucky enough to visit Marrakesh, Morocco with a few of my friends. It was a wonderful trip!

We managed to visit Marrakesh, Essaouira and the Atlas Mountains. It isn’t easy dressing conservatively under the Moroccan sun but somehow I managed to bear the heat. Check out a few of my outfits below.

Much better than watching paint dry!

Ever thought paint dripping down your legs wasn’t cool? Well think again. This new craze is growing at a crazy speed. I particularly like the ‘Bad girl’ vibe they give and even celebrities such as Hayley Williams from Paramore (VIDEO FOR ‘STILL INTO YOU’) can be seen sporting the latest trend.
