I really did want to start posting a lot more and taking more outfit posts but settling into uni has been a great big fatty change to my life so I am a little glad that I couldn't get my internet working. I really do want to grab the chance to make new friends, good friends, who I'll treasure for the rest of my life and I can't really be doing that if I'm in front of a laptop can I? 

I officially moved into my room Sunday morning and it's been a bit difficult getting together as a flat but it's lovely now! We went to the club on campus and being around other people definitely eased it up for us. I have to be at uni around 10am tomorrow (uhm, actually today, ooops..) so I better get some sleep. I just wanted to let you know I am alive and I will get back into regular blogging once I've fully settled into my uni life. Thanks for sticking by me!


Hey there, it's been a while. Sorry about that. I've been packing and mentally preparing myself for my move. The other day I went to buy things which I'll need next year for uni which got me a little excited about settling in, but of course the thought of actually leaving my home sweet home keeps hitting. Luxembourg has become my safety blanket. I love it here and I wouldn't have wanted to grow up anywhere else. The benefits this place has in terms of safety, education and diversity are beyond what any child could have asked for. How fun is this place? Well, many people my age or younger will say it's quite a boring quite and not so outgoing country to be in, but in my opinion places are boring only if you make it to be.

Hey there! I'm in Paris at the moment about to get my train back home - Emily was kind enough to put me up for one night. I had the best time ever in NYC and I really hope I get to go back soon in the near future. We went vintage shopping yesterday and I found amazing things for such good prices! But they are winter-y things so you probably won't see it in outfit posts until winter comes along. Today we walked around a bit and hit my favourite store ever in Paris: Marc by Marc Jacobs. I really like its location and of course the lovely things inside! 


I'm in love with the litas
Good afternoon there. I've just come back from spending the day in Central Park Zoo and we're soon heading out to explore more of the area and do some last minute shopping. I would love to stay and write to you  little bit more but my brain has turned to goo since our trek across and up Manhattan yesterday. Maybe I'll take a nap like the little one!


Oh what a stunner. She was dancing in those boots btw!
Video of what we saw
I almost have no words for how awesome my day has been. A small blog post doesn't seem sufficient. We first had lunch at this AMAZING japanese restaurant near Emily's aunt's work and then we headed off to the UN building (where I bought way too many books). After walking from 1st Ave to 9th (basically across manhattan) we went to Macy's for FASHION'S NIGHT OUT where we saw Coco Rocha, a few more models from Ford, Derek Warburton, some basketball player who's apparently quite amazing.. BUT OH GOSH COCO ROCHA (sorry for all the capital letters. I hate it when people do that but I feel like it's highly appropriate right now). After Macy's we went up the Empire State and had the most amazing view of Manhattan. We then basically walked from there to Columbus Circle/Central Park (34th st to 59th). My feet/neck/back/butt and all the rest has never hurt so much in my life but today has been one of the best days and perhaps the most memorable but for more reasons than just Coco which I'll keep to myself.

PS, the two beams of light in the last photo is where the twin towers used to stand.


Hey there! So I have so good/bad news.  Emily and I just found out that our flight had been moved to 24h later so I need to change my train ticket from Paris to go home BUT it means we have an extra day in NYC! Today we're going to check out the Empire State Building and B&H which is a mahooooosive electrical store and then it's Fashion's Night Out. Coco Rocha will be at Macy's (@Herald Sq)!!!!! How awesome.. I can't wait! What a great time to be in NYC.

 Emily - don't forget to check her blog!

 Alone at the top of the Rock
I have a bit of a different post for you guys - a tourist post! We ended up buying city passes for 79USD which allows us to go the top of the Rock (or entry to the Guggenheim), top of the Empire state, entry to the MoMA, entry to the MET, tour of Ellis and Liberty Island aaand entry to the Natural History Museum. Such a great deal! Despite the gloomy weather we decided to go up to the Rockerfeller. It was amazing. The first photo more or less sums up our wonderful view. It looked so mysterious with the steam and the clouds. After the Rockerfeller we went to the MoMA but on it's closed on Tuesdays. How great! So we decided to bounce to a mahoosive electrical store called B&H on 9th Ave. You walk in and I guarantee you that you feel like it's the mother of all electrical stores. Tomorrow we will fiiiinally (after many days of planning to, haha) get to go to the Natural History Museum with Emily's bébé-cousin. Sorry for all this tourist talk - I'll try get an outfit post for you tomorrow! Goodnight.


Oh yes that's right! I bought them when we were in Soho the other day. I wore them out today when we went to buy Emily's bébé-cousin a new fish and to UO + barnes & noble. I can just imagine wearing them in England, in the winter with my tootsies all warm. So I suppose you noticed I didn't mention anything about the Natural History Museum? Maybe not, but let me tell you we really did mean to go. Kay it's not nice to blame things on kids but this little (and adorable may I add) bébé-cousin of Emily's woke up around 5am and I got up around 6h30. We watched the shadow scene from Peter Pan about 6 times until half way through the film. By the afternoon I was utterly exhausted and had to take a nap, haha. Tomorrow we are planning (and planning to follow through with it this time) to go to the Museum and maybe Central Park Zoo if the bébé-cousin isn't too cranky or sleepy. Two big outings in one day is a bit much, but we'll see. As for now I am going to get ready for bed and enjoy my sleep while it lasts. Goodnight.


AWW YEEEAH - I went for the patent leather ones and I am in looooooove. Emily and I are planning on going grocery shopping in them just for the hell of it (and to get out of the apartment for a bit). YES they are as comfortable and wonderful as everyone says they are. These will be perfect for going out in winter - I'm really happy I purchased these! Emily's aunt and bébé cousin will be arriving home soon so we have to do that panic super speed cleaning up and the head down to Whole Foods (yummiest food EVER).


First of all, I must apologize for "wet hair look". My hair was actually wet as I more or less had just jumped out of the shower. We had quite a late start to the day and I assume that will be the case tomorrow as well (it's currently midnight here). We did quite a lot today. We rode the subway, totally messed up, ended up three stops further than we had planned to so we had to do everything on our list but backwards. We went to see the site where the World Trade Centers were and we also popped into the memorial site preview exhibition. It was very emotional to see but what really tugged on our heartstrings was when an audio clip sounded throughout the room of the accounts of the victims' families. From there we walked down to Pier 17 (a place where I used to go whenever I was in NYC with my family), had lunch in Chinatown, found the Dr Martens store in soho and a store selling Jeffrey Campbells (guilty....). My friend Emily and I are now proud owners of Litas. THEY ARE SO COMFORTABLE AND PRETTY AND GORGEOUS AND OHMYGOSH. It's like you're walking on heaven.

Hey there peeps, we've just got back from a long day of walking around central park (and into the film crew for The Avengers), down Lexington Ave and all the way to Times Square. We first popped into Bloomingdale's where I finally admitted defeat and asked a MAC shop-assistant to match a foundation for me. I'm pretty sure that ever since I've been using make up I've been using the wrong colour. After a while in Bloomingdale's we walked further along Lexington Ave and into Victoria's Secret. It was my first time there and I must say the underwear and pajamas are quite cute. After a very nasty disinfectant-tasting mahoosive sandwich we rolled ourselves and our bellies to Grand Central Station and the New York Public Library, they're both so beautiful.

It was then off to Times Square for us where we hit the F21 store and yeees I know I mentioned a few times that I wanted to go at midnight but to be honest with you, we're already exhausted by 7pm so I don't think we'd have the strength or energy to! Tomorrow we're planning on exploring Soho, Little Italy, China Town and Pier 17 (a place I used to go whenever my family and I came to NYC). I love it here. You know that feeling where you just know you belong somewhere? I felt it with the university which I'll be going to and I feel it here too. Well, there's always the work placement year! You never know...


Here's what I wore yesterday: Cheap Monday vest, lace vest and leggings. I was wearing sandals with this during the day but I decided to pop on my new mini uggs. I've wanted a pair like these for just over a year now. Uggs are so much cheaper here in the US! It's currently 9h30 here in NYC and we're planning our day. We'll explore the upper east side, check out carrie's house and just have a walk about. It feels good to be here!


Hey there sweeties! The magazine is finally online so please check out Christine's spread here and read my interview here. Moving on, I've had a great first day here in NYC. We headed to the urban outfitters around the corner from where we're staying, strolled along 5th avenue where we popped into Tiffany's and we then picked up some sushi to eat in central. Perfect day? I think yes.

For the moment we're chilling in the apartment but I'll try have some outfit photos for you by tonight. Or tomorrow morning. Depending on where you live hehe. We're not quite sure what we tomorrow's plan is but starbucks will probably fall into our paths at some point.
