October update

IMG_6273

It’s officially October and that means there’s 3 weeks of uni left…..wow. Actually, I’m aware 3 weeks is still a pretty long time and I’m gonna need all of that time to make sure this semester ends on a good note. So far the second half of the semester’s going relatively well, we’ve been given the task to produce a 5 second animation for the upcoming RMIT Communication Design event, which my exhibition design elective is currently working on and speaking of exhibition design, I’m part of the curatorial team! The role is quite daunting since I underestimated how much planning there is to be done but I’m liking the experience as we speak.

Last week I was able to stay on top of my work so I finally had time to catch up with some good friends. Decided to go to the Melbourne Show, mind you the last time I went was…I don’t know. Too long ago. We bumped into the Masterchef kitchen by the way. Oh hello there….

I don’t usually go out and shop but when I do, it’s either when the sales happen, when I have to buy gifts or when I’m overseas. Nothing beats online shopping though, good values and good variety which brings me to this photo of my  most recent purchase, the cropped trench coat. Has a distinct design and was perfect to wear at the Melb Show given that we had to battle heavy winds all day eugh!

It’s a laid-back Tuesday

I don’t often get the chance to go and casually hang out at cafes but when I do, it’s at Giraffe Cafe. Hidden in the narrowness of Little Lonsdale (and next to an ugly, noisy construction site) Giraffe Cafe was the perfect place to stop by and catch up with a friend who I haven’t seen in a very long time. I love the place! It’s cosy and cute, very cute! Walls embellished with polaroids, antiques and photo frames and rooms filled with random bits and pieces here and there that make you wonder why they’re there. Yeah, it’s all lovely. One of the reasons, no wait, the only reason why I make occasional trips back to this cafe is because of their simple yet delicious menu with mouthwatering desserts, vegetarian friendly dishes and best of all, their chai latte. THEIR CHAI LATTE. A glass full of goodness that’s perfect for this 3 degree weather…it’s the best. I can’t resist.

All about Black Milk

IMG_4906

Over the weekend I woke up dead early to catch the Black Milk sample sale with a friend of mine and boy oh boy was it hectic or what!? Black Milk only sell their products online and the brand is popular for their nylon leggings with unique designs. I’m not a fan of those cheap-looking, plain black cotton leggings that should only be worn to gym but I am a fan of leggings with either a subtle or flowing pattern print design and ever since a friend introduced me to Black Milk last year, I immediately fell in love. This sale only happens once in a while and it’s worth going to if you’re a fan like myself. Everything was $30, literally  more than half the online price.

Black milk designs can get over the top, some of them are too bright for my liking…I mean look at those pantone leggings and the triangular shaped ones! I’m not gutsy enough to wear those out in public.

Ooh we also managed to stop by for a spicy pork meal bucket at Seoul Soul. Good treat after lining up in the cold for hours. SO GOOD!

Here’s my collection of leggings/jeggings. In the end I got my hands on a pair of tetris leggings and I’m loving it! Shame most of the good designs were already gone by the time we arrived. The last purchase I made from BM was the koi fish print and it definitely isn’t going to stop there. Some other recent purchases I made were from Boohoo.com, UNIQLO, Forever 21, eBay and Topshop.

A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I live and breathe all things art, design, culture and fashion. You'll find me documenting my life in the creative field, endless travels with friends and family and a bit of food.
