Elevator Love Letter

Vintage dress - Hunters and Gatherers

Dress - Topshop
Bowler Hat - General Pants

The weather has been so lovely lately! It's all gloomy and dark, makes me wanna sleep all day long and not do or worry about a single shizz in my life! Atika got a new bike last week, her bike is lovely. I feel all giggly riding it, and I feel like I want to randomly burst into songs when I'm on it.

I went to Istanbul a couple of weeks back. I had such a great time there! I miss having holidays with my family. Istanbul is a beautiful place, the people there are really friendly too! When we were there, we went to this island called Princes' Island. The island is gorgeous, it's a like little town all on its own. I'm not sure but I think I didn't see anyone riding cars in that island (which is great for me), they use bikes as a form of transport!! How awesome is that. You could even rent bikes if you don't have your own bike. Ahh that island definitely left me a good impression.

Btw... how awesome is New Moon's soundtrack?! Its amazing. I, myself is not a fan of the Twilight Saga... or even vampires for that matter, but by golly the New Moon soundtrack is tres awesome!! My favourite one is Satellite Heart by Anya Maria and New Moon (The Meadow) by Alexandre Desplat, a two must listen if you've not already have. Anyways, I hope you're all doing well and enjoying yourselves. Much love!

The 1950s

Ahh the 1950s.. there's something that is so admiring about that era. Sometimes I do wish that I lived around that time. Gorgeous clothes. Music that makes your feet tap. Talking with that 1950s accent. Sending postcards instead of sending emails or chatting on MSN. Yes. The 50s sounds lovely and perfect for me.
Apologies beforehand for the picture overload, but I just couldn't resist myself! I can't help but imagine my head (or rather body) in each of these 50s clothing! I especially love the make up style back then, with (fairly) thick eyebrows, red lush lipstick. I think the make up is the cherry on top.

P.S. I'm a fan of The Swell Season and recently (well more like last month) they released their new album called Strict Joy. I recommend everyone who enjoys Glen's husky's voice and Marketa's soothing voice to listen to their new album :) The song In These Arms is my favourite.

Dress - Topshop; Cardigan - Mango; Stockings - Melbourne Central; Shoes - Bata

How are you feeling today, folks? I'm feeling fantastic despite the fact that I just woke up with this little person hammering in my head. We played a very intense badminton last night, it was really fun! Covered in sweat didn't bother us though because the weather last night was hella awesome. I hope winter will pay us a looong loong visit this year.

We went to Joshua Radin's gig awhile ago, we tried to hinder from the crazed fans out there therefore no, we didn't try to touch his hand or shout "marry me". Yes we are his much more cooler fans, totally. He was amazing btw, he sounded as good on recording as he does live! Hmmm, what shall I recommend for our Saturday tune then? Try listening to Monogrenade – Ce Soir, a dear friend of mine recommended it to me.
P.S. I'll be seeing The Pains of Being Pure at Heart live at Melbourne on 17th of February! How exciting! :D

The weather today is getting more friendly therefore my sista-from-the-other-hood suggested to take pictures outside her house. Believe it or not, it was my first time wearing skinny jeans besides trying them out in the fitting room! Afterward, we went into separate ways, hanging out with people our age! Haha. I went to eat with the guys, laughed, raced each other at the playground -srsly? how old are we?-, laughed more, stopped by at my friend's party then things got more serious. I have noticed how people always contradict themselves unconsciously and unfortunately. It was an interesting day despite the bizarre things that happened! Gotttaaahh gooohh tooh sleepph nowwh.

Oh and listen to Russian Roulette by Rihanna which has been stuck in my head for a few days now. Never usually thought that I would listen to her songs repeatedly!

Oof I've been listening to this song called Higher Than The Stars by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart! It has got such a catchy tune! I'm definitely addicted to it. I hope you all had a good weekend!

Kids with style

I love children clothes, there's always something so fresh in them. If i was able to wear their clothes everyday i would! Now I'm wishing i had a little sister so i can dress her up. Plus added to their adorable faces, anything would look cute on them! :)

Suri Cruise and her adorable dresses <3

Has anyone listened to Paramore's new album? Personally i really enjoyed it and i can't stop listening to "Playing God". Have a great day!

Another sunny day outside, we went to the nearest playground which used to be filled with children playing and screaming/laughing. I wonder what happened? I guess the weather is just a bit too hot and they stopped coming out for a while. I thought the natural sunlight was absolutely beautiful in the pictures! We've both have baked some delicious cakes; Baked cheesecake and Red Velvet cake :D

Oh we've also been listening to Jay-z and Alicia Keys - Empire state of mind, it is a genre we usually don't listen to but the collaboration was great and Alicia Key's piano and voice is magnificent.

Zooey Deschanel

all images from:

There's something about this half french half irish girl that is so intriguing. I saw her on screen in (500) days of Summer a couple of days back (yes Australia is very late when it comes to movies), and she was just the cutest! I love her vintage-indie style of dressing in that movie, despite the fact that the ending of the movie made me go "WOT?!" with a british accent.

I simply adore the outfit she wore in the first picture. I love the details of the skirt (reminds me of fish scales), and the wooden heart shaped necklace is the perfect cherry topping to the white dress! Actually I think she might be wearing two pieces of clothing. Ohmg, I'm craving for some caramel pudding. I wish it would magically drop from the sky as of this very moment.

Okay dokes, I gotta head off to Woolworths now to do some grocery shopping! I love grocery shopping and wandering around in the aisles :D

Hope you all had a great weekend.

P.S. I'm currently hooked on Athlete's new album; Black Swan. All the songs from there are so condensed with emotions and honesty. I especially love the song called Black Swan Song, it's a song about Joel's grandfather who recently has just passed away (may he rest in peace).

It still feels like summer here even though school has started, it gets better when afternoon comes though. The sky would be clear and the sun would shine really brightly that it's enough to make your skin go red in a minute or so, can't wait for winter!

Listen to Lucy Schwartz - I Don't Know A Thing, the song reminds me of summer plus a clueless person who's moving forward and waiting whatever there is to come :D

Have a nice day you all!
