Everything and Nothing

Based off in London, Úna Burke just won me over with her SS14 collection, Everything and Nothing.The collection itself was inspired by shadow puppetry and the forms of aesthetics.

The installation was based on observations of how shadows would not be possible without light and how light would show nothing without the dense form of the puppet in front if it. It is interesting to see how positive and negatives spaces were used to create certain forms that are worn loosely around the body, which in effect gives a softer, lighter and fresher feel to the entire collection.

Gradual Transition

 It's amazing how pieces from different collections and from different designers can work so harmoniously together. Those beautiful coats from Przhonskaya doesn't exactly scream out spring/summer but the mixture of striking cobalt and pale baby blue creates a clean, crisp atmosphere. 

 It is almost the beginning of April but we still have piles of snow here. At this point, I'm ready to call it quits and just hibernate some more. But patience is virtue and before we even know it, we will be strutting down the streets, dressed in something that will scream out summer.


Slowly but surely, transitioning out of the darker hues with lighter ivory on ivory action.

Interior Aesthetics

I N S P I R A T I O N


Simplicity can be interpreted as mundane and even cold to some eyes. For me, minimal lines and  geometric shapes mean more room for creativity and inspiration. Not only is it easy on the eyes, having a clustered-free space becomes refreshing. I am not a person who favours an eclectic approach when it comes to interior designs/decorating. I tend to strictly stick to monochromatic tones (such as white, black, slate grey) and prefer clean cut lines that can be considered borderline boring. Here are some of my favourite spaces that depicts my love of aesthetics when it comes to interior spaces.

The Ultimate Trio

B E A U T Y

Extreme winter weather often aggravates the face, resulting in dehydrated and dull-looking skin.
I naturally have severely dry skin so finding a moisturizer that will quench my parched skin has always been on top of my priority list.

I'm not the best at taking care of my skin and I'm especially guilty when it comes to wearing sunscreen on a daily basis (or lack there of). Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer in SPF 30 is perfect for people like me. Lightweight yet extremely moisturizing with the added benefit of sun protection.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream tends to be thicker than the Ultra Facial Moisturizer but it is in no way, heavy on the skin. It absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn't leave a greasy film/residue. I use this at night time and my skin feels soft and supple when I wake up. 

Christian Dior Crème de Rose quickly made its way up to my all time favourite hydrating lip balms. When you first buy it, you have to "push" the product in to break the hard surface to really get the texture of the lip balm. The only downside is that it's packaged in a jar, (which I do not like due to sanitary reasons) so I only tend to use it at night as a hydrating lip mask.

Snow Day

W E A R I N G / D I Y

Some sneaky, cheeky shots of me wearing the top I made when I was back in Toronto last week. The night before I was leaving, I decided to cut and stitch up some leather to make this box-y cut shirt. Literally only had 3 hours to make this, (dad complained that the sewing machine was too loud and that he needed his beauty sleep) so the shirt is still somewhat under construction.

P.S There is mad snow everywhere. Beware
