Boy meets world + happy new years

I want to marry that outfit. I don't know what it's called, but for now I'll just call it skirt with suspenders, I want it.

High socks with converse shoes, yum.

I love this scene. It reminds me of Grease as well. I really adore the cut off denim shirt that sort of look like a long vest.

I tried to get a screen cap of the details on the skirt. I think that's a zipper at the front with two silver buttons. It looks like a floral skirt.

I grew up watching boy meets world. I love this tv series, it's funny and original. I love how in almost every episodes there's a lesson to be learned. A lesson in life. I watched it again a month ago. I only got up to the 5th season though. I was so inspired by the outfits they were wearing in the first few seasons. I love how they look in general. I'm completely in love with fashion from the 90s. I adore the cut off overall Chloe Sevigny is wearing. I used to love wearing overalls all the time, just because that's the only thing that fits me. The above pictures are taken from season 2 of boy meets world.

Happy new years everyone! I hope you all had a lovely year. I sure did, sort of. Do you have any new year resolution? I can never stick to my resolution, I give up half way! So this year I decided I should do the 365 project, one photograph a day. I'm flying back to Melbourne today, so excited.

Also, I'm still completely in love with this: Christopher Kane, Erdem.

I first stumbled upon twentysevennames twentysevennames a few weeks back when I was browsing through no. magazine. I fell in love with it instantly. Their 2010/2011 summer collection is perfection. It consists of mainly nude colours, frills, knits, and sheer materials. At a glance, the cob web lace tee reminds me of Hope Sandoval's outfit in one of her videos. I can't quite remember which video right now. I absolutely love the lilac coloured collar. Lately, I find myself loving outfits from the 90s. No.magazine is one of my favourite magazine too! Check it out. I love their editorials. I hope I can work there one day.

I'm going back to Melbourne next week. Super excited! My friend booked the hotel for Philip Island. We're planning to go there at the end of January. I can't wait for the beach. Merry christmas to everyone, I hope you had a lovely time with your family. Check out the song heartbreaker by Girls, the song is currently playing on loop in my head.

Days in my backyard

I'm back in Doha for the month, it's been alright so far but I'm running out of stuff to do! I'm quite excited to go back to Melbourne at the end of this month, despite the fact that I'll be spending new years in the plane. Oh the horror. Today is Qatar's National day, and my parents wants to go to the corniche where they are going to have carnivals, fireworks and such to celebrate for the event. I guess I'm quite excited to take velvet (my smena symbol) out. I wanted to get a fujilm instax 210 yesterday, but I didn't end up getting it because they ran out of film :(

What's everyone doing for new years and christmas? Also, I've been listening to a lot of blackbird blackbird lately. They're just gorgeous. This is my favourite song from them, I can't help but smile watching the video. The other video they have for this song is quite beautiful too.

A late sydney post


A few months back Celsy and I went to Sydney for five days! It was all great fun. We've never been to Sydney before so we really had that whole tourist excitement going on. Sydney is huge, such a busy city full of wandering tourists. We stayed across the Harbour Bridge at a suburb called Kirribilli. The suburb is gorgeous, it's like a tiny town all on its own. We stayed at a bed and breakfast called Glenferrie Lodge, it's a really welcoming lodge filled with families, old people, and backpackers. Even though it's a bit of a walk to the city, by a bit I mean it takes 45 minutes to walk across the bridge to get to the city. It's such a lovely feeling though, walking across the bridge, especially at night. I kinda miss it now.

We went to eat at "Pancakes on the Rocks", a popular pancakes place at Sydney, and it was amazing. We had chocolate pancakes! I've never had chocolate pancakes before, and wow it tasted so good. The second day at Sydney was crazy, we walked all the way from Kirribilli to Darling Harbour. I don't know how many kilometers we walked that day, but I can tell you this the soles of my shoes fell off because of it. I had to use super glue to fix it.

I Live For Glitter, Not You






Ruffled dress - Topshop; Oversized cardigan - Dad's; Sneakers - H&M

This week has been so lovely, I wander around aimlessly every afternoon watching the birds eating the crumbs that my dad put inside the bird house yesterday it's so nice. Hearing the birds chipping can sometimes get inside my head, but it feels dazzling! I'm also kind of glued to my dad's warm cardigan, the weather is getting chilly and slightly windier it gets me thinking maybe the end of this year is going to be fantastic and magical especially since this place is going to be filled with people whom I've missed terribly!

Airwaves (Breathing)

Cropped top - Topshop; Shorts, Sunglasses and Shoes - H&M

I can't believe how long this blog has been dead for. I miss posting stuff up, but workload has been a heavy burden for me to lift up. It's all doodaahdoooh life is good now though. Say goodbye to exams, I'm as free as a cageless bird now.

Super duper summer here means you can't be crazier for staying here and not running away to somewhere cooler! Well, hello shorts and comfy loose t-shirts! I was just emptying my wardrobe then stopped half-way, it's so stressing deciding which one should stay and go. It helped me realize how much stuff I don't need though *loooong louuuud sigh*. I will be leaving to Turkey in two more days. I think it's going to be fantastic! Shimmering mediterranean seas.. ahh my body feels so light thinking about it. Anyways, I have been creating my summer list soundtrack just before I leave.. to accompany me contemplating on life. Hahahaha I love my deep moments. Well, here are two artists I have been listening to over and over again; Lissie and Laura Jansen. I especially love Lissie's voice.. try the song When I'm Alone and her cover of Bad Romance.

Hey you guys! It's been a while but quiet a few things has happened lately. We've just watched The Swell Season concert, it was amazing! For those who don't know them check them out pretty please and watch Glen's and Marketa's movie 'Once'. It was beautiful listening to Glen singing and the whole crew too. Especially when he sang 'Say it to me', it probably gave shiver to the whole crowd.

Also yesterday we went and saw a movie called 'Welcome' in the cinema. It's a French movie about an Iraqi immigrant boy who is trying to get to UK but kept getting caught, until he met this one guy. Anyways i won't spoil anything because you have to watch it, but be warn the movie will make you feel all low and blue. Oh and it's funny after we watch a movie we came across this French guy down the street singing while playing the guitar, we asked if he could play us a song and he sang all these lovely French songs and some of his personal ones too. It's funny how he looks so much like Glen Hansard from The Swell Season and how he is playing guitar down the street. His name was Remi and he was a very lovely guy. He gave both of us a hug after we listened to couple of his songs and that made our feelings a little less blue! I really hope we can bump into him again, afterall Melbourne is quiet a small place :)

It's a small crime and I've got no excuse

T-shirt - Topshop; Cardigan - Zara; Shoes - Unbranded (from Indonesia)

Hello there! It's been more than a month I haven't heard from you. I had croissant + strawberry jam to start off my morning. Simple and yet tasty. Today I haven't been doing much really apart from my art essay which is due tomorrow. They call me a doomed girl not for nothing. However, last night was fab. It sucks to be home and to be thinking what a great time I just had, I'm going to miss everyone in just a few more months! *sobs* (Whilst the other two already went off to uni, I'm still stuck in this bloody part of the world)

We just moved into a new apartment last week and it's been fantastic, the place is great! Selecting furnitures from IKEA is really fun when you have the money but hey we'll take it slowly. I have a holiday now and i've got two more weeks until Uni starts, kind of excited starting a new semester...and scared at the same time! Wish me luck!
