Schwarze Perle

At a street festival in the East German city of Potsdam many years ago, a group of young German lads sauntered past me, muttering to each other and just as they walked past, one of them spoke loud enough for me to hear, “Hey schwarze Perle”. I stopped in my tracks. Continue reading Schwarze Perle

In short(s)… goodbye summer!

It’s officially the first day of Autumn today! Yay! Not. 😦

Hello beautiful people. Hope you’ve had a great summer. I’m not sure where and how to begin to apologise for my long hiatus. Let’s just say life’s been busy with all sorts. I’ve been preoccupied with turning a new age in August(whoop whoop) , re-evaluating my goals both short and long-term, campaigning in a competition for UK’s next top stylist (more details to come in next post) and just living life in general. Initially, I just didn’t have time to post. Around my birthday, I found myself asking myself a lot of questions about where I am and where I am going, with this blog, with my career and just generally in life. Coupled with the fact that I am running in a competition run by the Stylist magazine and Ford UK motors, I needed to re-assess a lot of things and I guess, map out a plan on where to go from here. As said earlier, I will post more information about the competition in my next post but in the meantime, please visit fiestastylista.co.uk to have a peep and show some support by voting for me. I have missed blogging terribly and can’t wait to get back into the swing of things.

For my come-back post and as we say goodbye to what’s the favourite season for a lot of people, I thought to share this summer outfit from a few weeks back. Grab your hot beverage and enjoy._MG_4272-Edit

Ignorance is bliss… Or is it?

Hi guys.

Hope you’re all having a nice weekend. So today’s post isn’t fashion-related but rather, wanted to share a story that I’ve been mulling over a lot lately.

I moved to London three years ago from Dublin where I’d spent my teenage years and early adult life. Dublin, for those who know it, is not a massively big city. I knew the city centre and certain areas like the back of my hand. Started driving in my late teens and I’ve never had to use a sat nav in Dublin, like I mean never. If I was going somewhere I wasn’t too familiar with, I would just ask my dad who knows the city very well and that’s problem solved.
