So... I graduated from the University of Surrey last week and it feels utterly amazing! I woke up super early to put on my kimono with the help of my mother and graduated with some of my best friends (photo here). My university's grad ball had put on a funfair along with a Great Gatsby themed ball - I was so impressed with it all! It was strictly black tie but I managed to get away with wearing sneakers the whole night. It was such a busy and fun weekend but of course it all had to come to an end. We all said our see-you-soon's.

As soon as I was back, I had to start packing again but this time from Japan - a long awaited trip with my boyfriend and his family. It has been a while since I've spent a hot summer in Japan as in the previous years, I have taken advantage of my inter-semester break around February. I cannot wait for all the food and festivals!

I'm actually writing to you from Schiphol Airport waiting for our connection to Kansai International wearing my comfy new slip on sandals that I found in the sale at the Mano store in Auchan. They are from a brand called Blink Shoes which are also available on ASOS (similar style here)! I didn't fall in love with this style of shoe when it first hit the trend radar but I'm glad I waited out on buying a pair because I adore the jewelled design on this one!
