ABSTRACT PRINTS & CO-ORDS


I've been a long time advocate of pairing contrasting prints to create a look that is often quirky, fun and in this case chic. For this particular print mix, I was inspired by the concept of co-ord pieces and I was looking to create a less chaotic print pairing that closely resembled a co-rd set and this abstract print shorts and brushstroke top were a perfect mismatch to achieve my vision. The shots in front of the little garden and green plants, were exactly the kind of color backdrop I needed, to compliment this white and black ensemble and offset my turquoise purse as well as the neon details on my white shoes to pull the whole concept off and the look together.

Pink and Purple Hues : Reconnecting with my Inner Child

There's something about the summer air that just makes me want to be a little girl again and today's look was very much about connecting with my inner child. I normally wouldn't dare to wear this much colour but summer only comes around, a couple weeks a year in England, so what the heck! This floral print babydoll dress was the perfect ode to summer time girlhood and the pink messenger bag and purple Steve Madden sandals kept the palette very colorful, super girly and playful. One major summer style tip from me, would be to have as much fun as possible with your wardrobe, because summer is one of the few acceptable times of the year, to let that little girl out and go colour crazy! Here's wishing you all a wonderful week.

MEZZANINE

Good evening everyone, for the past couple weeks, I've been searching online for potential appartments styles and i have viewed a significant number of studio appartments and realized that some of my favorite studio designs featured mezzanines. This realization inspired the decision to dedicate this next post on interior design to mezzanines. For those of you who don't know, a mezzanine is a floor inbetween the main floors of a building, which more often than not, houses the bedroom and on ocassion the dinning area or other parts of the appartment. Mezzanines are most commonly featured in studio and loft appartments and is a contemporary, open plan design style that aslo happens to be great for maximizing space in a very stylish manner. Mezzanines also have the added advantage of creating an illusion of privacy (akin to that of one bedroom appartments) in studio appartments largely, because of  it's demarcation of the bedroom from other parts of the appartment. Below is a selection of some of my favorite Lofts and studio appartments that feature mezzanines.

FORMAL OCCASIONS : TUXEDO PANTS & VICTORIAN SLEEVES

Good evening everyone. My style update today is on my look to one of my favorite people in the world's graduation ceremony. Much like all graduation ceremonies, it was a formal affair and I decided to pull together a basic but fashion forward formal ensenmble, with some verve! I opted for this off-white blouse with victorian style sleeves, that gave the ensemble a certain flair, especially paired with a pair of black tuxedo pants which are a nice little deviation from your basic black pants. I kept the accessorising to a minimum with these ruby swarovski crystal earrings and a couple of my favorite dainty bracelets.

CHOAPHRAYA (THAI CUISINE)

 Good evening everyone. I would like to start by apologizing for my brief hiatus, It's been one of those weeks where life and the editorial process get in the way. Today's post is about one of my most frequented restuarants ChaophrayaChaophraya is a Thai restaurant located in the heart of Birmingham city centre. My friend and I happened upon it about 2 years ago while we were still studying in Birmingham and it became our go to spot for Thai cuisine. The restaurant is an appropriate blend of elegant and casual, the interior design and lighting provide a much needed elegance, while the simplicity of the table setting gives a more casual, relaxing character to the restaurant.

Dinner is made in an open plan kitchen and is served by a wonderful and very helpful asian staff in keeping, with the restuarants oriental cuisine and theme. Chaophraya offers lovely thai food and a  relaxing dinning experience on a budget and is perfect for the individual, trying to get away from the rowdiness of a buffet or fast food setting but on a budget. Here are a number of pictures, some of which are personally  photographed and some other pictures from the restaurants website to provide a balanced view of company-customer perspective.
