Mon Coeur ♥


Blazer and Brooch: Iconic
Camera Bag: Herringbone
Watch: Make Time Watches
Socks: Cotton On

I am so in love with this look! When I tried this out I wasn't really sure about it but when we took shots of it I was so lovestrucked!


Red and burgundy are very strong colours and I sometimes stay away with them, but with this kind of look, I can wear everyday.

I really love the brooch paired with the blazer (Iconic)! I thought it was very feminine when I looked at it, but when I tried it out it was a very good touch.


There's so many wonderful things about this look, the bag (Herringbone) in particular is a very good find. I don't usually buy stuff online especially when the items I will buy are from overseas. One day I was looking for nice camera bags I can buy locally but I failed to find one so I decided to check stuff at ebay. When I saw this bag, I just fell in love with it and though I was a bit skeptic, I purchased it online. I was so surprised that it came in just two weeks!

Its not too big, a regular DSLR with a small lens will fit perfectly in it and there's a few space for little items such as a smart phone and a pair of glasses. I'm really satisfied with it and after a few weeks I decided to buy another bag for my Instax which I'm so excited with!

I put on a nice dark blue colored skinny jeans, sneakers for comfort with a pair of cool printed socks (Cotton On) and wore a Make Time Watches with the Mustache Man face.


There's a bit of Romance in this look, and I'm ready to go out on a date! <3

Climbing Up




Sunglasses: zeroUV
Shirt: Fred Perry
Cardigan: Jules

The weather is starting to change again and the days are starting to become a bit more pleasant which I really like. I can’t wait to be able to sit outdoors with my laptop on, sipping a cup of coffee while blogging!

I really like going around the city now taking outfit posts! It’s fun to discover new places that not a lot of people go to and take some photos. I’m recently obsessed with Al Rheem Island! There’s not a lot of people, and I like that it has that city vibe in it.



Oh and I got my curled hairstyle back! To be honest I had no idea how do my new hairstyle so I guess I’ll keep it curled for a while till I figure out what to do with it.  I figured it’s getting a bit cooler so I think I would need to grow my hair a bit more.



I can’t wait to get back into my cardigans! This look in particular has a certain casual yet preppy feel into it. I wrapped the cardigan (Jules) on my shoulders and used it as an accessory since the weather is still a bit warm so I can’t wear it yet except when I’m indoors with the AC turned on full blast. I’m wearing a Fred Perry shirt that I’ve always wanted to have since Year 2. I recently discovered during the LOVE ABU DHABI series that there’s a Fred Perry store in Galleria mall (So yes, I went a little bit nuts).

To complete this look, I wore a comfy pair of chinos and shoes and finished with this super cool retro inspired sunglasses from zeroUV. Thank you zeroUV! <3

Restart




Watch: Make Time Watches
Shirt: Jules
Hat: H&M

Hello friends! I'm so glad to be back!!!! like I said on my FB like page, I wanted have a week rest from blogging to restart and reflect on what to do for this year.

Most of you would probably know that I've described myself as a Homebody Style Blogger. Well, that still true until now. I pretty much focused on style blogging the whole year rather than attending events and getting more featured on magazines and other media platforms.

To be honest, I am capable of doing that. But then I realized that there are more things that important for me than networking, traveling, trying to be famous and living a life that I pretty much don't have.

Reflecting on the week that I had, there are three questions in my mind on why I want to continue doing this:

1. What is really my goal?
2. What do I get when I do this?
3. Is there a reason why I should be doing this?

Well my friends... There's only one answer to all this questions and its very simple:

I'm doing it for me.

I want my style blogging experience to be entirely about what I do and why I do it and I realized that I don't really need to do what other Fashion Blogger/Style Blogger does. There are days that I just want to sit in my couch, play a random video, finish my favorite RPG games, enjoy a day doing nothing and probably spend my days with friends that I'm very comfortable with and want to hang out with.

I'm an introvert and I have no problem or issues being one. I just really enjoy doing things that I do especially when I'm on my own.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a snob and I'm actually really happy and support other Fashion/Style bloggers doing their own things and becoming well known and successful while attending events, fashion shows, etc. But those things I mentioned are not for me. I think its nice to become well known or to be acknowledged on the things I do particularly on style blogging and illustrating but that's pretty much where the line ends for me.

I don't desire mediocrity, if I do, I wont be doing videos, I won't be doing series, or I wont do fun changes on my blog. I'm just really contented on how my blog is doing now and I honestly want to be someone who's low key yet relatable, creative and do things my own way.

While I was thinking I about this, I realized that each year I sort of had these different themes:

Year 1: Starting Over
Year 2: Continuing on

Finally this year would be...

Year 3: Doing Things The Way I Want 


This year would be very simple, laid back and would focus more on my Style Blogging.

However, I really enjoyed the LOVE ABU DHABI SERIES so this year most of my looks would mostly be around Abu Dhabi! Plus, I might do a couple of short series during this year which I'm very excited about! :D

Oh and another thing! I had tons of fun doing my anniversary video so I'm planning to do short video clips of all the looks I did by the end of each month! Sound good right?

If you guys haven't seen the video yet, feel free to play it right down here:


Oh btw! I have a new haircut! Well it's really not that different from my previous look, but I decided to at least try to look different to open Year 3!
I'm wearing a white light denim shirt (Jules) paired with super skinny jeans and my favorite Nike Air Max sneakers. I put on a cool hat (H&M), necklace and a cool watch from Make Time Watches to complete this nice laid back, on-the-go look.

I think I did pretty well on Year 2 than in Year 1 completing almost all of the items I listed last year. Unfortunately, I still failed to complete some of the other items:

3 Suits = 2 Suits
5 Slacks/ Chinos = COMPLETE!
10 Overcoats/ Casual Jackets = COMPLETE!
10 Long Sleeves Polo = COMPLETE!
10 Short Sleeves Polo/Polo Shirt = COMPLETE!
5 T-Shirts = 1 T-Shirt
5 Jeans = COMPLETE!
5 Cardigans/Hoodies = COMPLETE!
3 Tank Tops
5 Shorts = 2 Shorts
7 Shoes= COMPLETE!
10 Sweater = 1 Sweaters
2 Vests = 1 Vest
5 Bags = COMPLETE!

This year I removed a couple of items that I don't think I would need for Year 3 and added a new item on the list. We'll see... as they all say, 3rd is a charm so who knows! I might be able to complete The List this year! :D


2 Suits
5 Slacks/ Chino
10 Overcoats/ Casual Jackets
10 Long Sleeves Polo = 9 Long Sleeves Polo
10 Short Sleeves Polo/Polo Shir
5 T-Shirts
5 Jean
5 Cardigans/Hoodie
5 Shorts
7 Shoes
10 Sweater
5 Bag
5 Caps/Hats = 4 Caps/Hats

The Year 2 Archive is now up! If you missed some of my looks or want to do a little back trip feel free to click on the picture below! :D
