Hiya, it has been a while again. It’s almost Christmas now and I thought I really need to update my blog before 2018. I was supposed to post this way earlier, but I have been involved in a car accident so everything has been delayed at the moment.
Anyway, let’s talk about my trip to Ghent. Last month Tim was finally on leave and I had a little break from studying and work, so we had a mini trip to Ghent and then he flew to Hong Kong with me for a week. We started from the Netherland in the afternoon, and it was already dark when we arrived Ghent. It was freezing cold and raining, and I was desperate for a toilet. I thought we were just walking into this CASTLE to borrow a toilet (no big deal haha), and here comes to the biggest surprise……Tim booked this AMAZING hotel for the night and I had NO IDEA!!! Seriously this person is the sweetest !!! I swear it is the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in, the decors are so beautiful with a stunning view of city.
After we settled in our room, we went out for dinner and took a little stroll in the city. Ghent is hands down the most romantic and beautiful place I have ever been to, the city is surrounded by medieval architecture and streets. I felt like I was walking in a fairy tale or Harry Potter’s story.
Next day, we started the day with this sweetest coffee in my life, and we pretty much spent the whole day eating and wandering around the city. Tim also found this building on the beer bottle, haha! It was such a shame that we didn’t have enough time to stay longer in Ghent, but we said to each other we will definitely go back again ! I can only imagine how beautiful it will be in summer.
After Ghent, Tim stayed in Hong Kong to see his family for a week and he had a hair cut to become cool again, haha. We also did a hike from Tung Chung to Big Budda, Ngong Ping. Seriously, it was the toughest hike in my life. I am extremely proud of us for completing it !
Before I end this post and disappear for another month again, I would like to wish whoever is reading this a very happy Christmas and New Year !!!
Off-shoulder Jumpsuit: Unbranded (Similars)
Hello my lovelies, here I am with another summer outfit in the beginning of November. Nothing wrong with that, right? HAHA. I seriously hope you wouldn’t mind, as I only have time to take photos during my layovers in Hong Kong at the moment. Anyway, I wore this black off shoulder jumpsuit, or playsuit?, I will call it jumpsuit here, but correct me if I am wrong. Well, I have a love and hate relationship with jumpsuits. Yes, they look pretty and you don’t need to worry about exposing yourself by accidents like when wearing dresses or skirts. HOWEVER, jumpsuits can be a huge pain when you need a toilet, as the only way for us ladies to do our business is to go butt naked! Ladies, admit it, we ALL have this problem with jumpsuits. Considering this huge inconvenience, I tend to stay away from them no matter how appealing and gorgeous they are. Well, in this occasion, I was not strong enough and bought this one in a local Hong Kong shop (Be aware of them Hong Kong sales persons, they know how to sell !). Well, other than the toilet problem, this jumpsuit has also failed me with the off shoulder design. As we all know, off shoulder tops tend not to stay in place on your shoulders and this one just keeps going upwards as I move. Ugh.. I had such a difficult time on that day just doing normal acitivites that require slightly raising my arms, especially the pain of constantly pulling down and fixing my clothes during the photoshoots Other than that, this jumpsuit is very cute and I probably wouldn’t wear this one or get another one again, XD. Aww well, enough of my rants on jumpsuits. Hope you all have a lovely week, xx, Leah.
Top & Shorts: Zara (Similars)
Hello, babes. Last week I was in Hong Kong again, the weather was still gorgeous there (about 30 degree). One thing I love the most about Hong Kong is definitely its beautiful weather, as it doesn’t really have winter. I wore this flared sleeves top from Zara I got during spring this year. That’s when the flare trend just started, I remembered I was trying on this top in the shop, and the shop assistant asked me:’Oh, do you like this sleeves?’ I was like :’Yes! They are beautiful!’ I don’t know why I am really into the flare trend even right at the beginning. My boyfriend Tim was joking about this top as the ‘I’am like a bird’ top.. haha. Yes, I can’t lie I do feel like a bird when I wear the flared sleeves.. but.. who doesn’t want to feel like a bird.. haha. Anyway, I can’t believe it’s almost November (and I am still here showing you all summer clothes -.-). Well, there will be fall and winter clothes coming soon, I promise ! Now I need to go watch the Godfather with Tim ( I am probably the few weirdos who have never watched this classic trilogy). Hope you all have a lovely week.
Leather Jacket: Bauhaus(Similar)
Hi there, it’s been a long while again. For today’s outfit, I finally wore this beautiful floral tea dress I bought from Mango about 3 months ago. The fit is absolutely perfect and it makes me feel so feminine. I love the puffy sleeves and the little pearl bottom on the chest. I paired it with a white leather jacket as it is getting colder in UK now. I am a big fan of leather jacket, when I saw this white one from Bauhaus, I was like I need this in my life NOW !!! Bauhaus has the best leather jackets for petite girls, particularly those with tiny frame and shoulders like me.
Now with some life updates, I am extremely sorry for those who actually care about this blog, especially my dearest friends who asked me when I am going to update. As much as I want to update my blog more often, I really need to set my priorities straight. At the moment, my degree comes on top of the list, as I really really want to graduate before next June. Therefore, I have been really busy with my studying and working. In the middle of all these, I moved house as well, which means I have more things to sort out with the new place. There are tons of addresses that I need to update and important things to register, such as doctor and dentist, etc. Since I have moved to somewhere further away from London, I need to get used to drive to work on motorway, which was a really daunting experience at the beginning for me as I am not a very confident driver yet. Also, I just had time to start decorating my new study/wardrobe room, there are still a few items I need to put into my bedroom. Although it was really tiring to deal all of those at the same time, I am so excited for the new place and I can’t wait to share with you guys the transformation when all my rooms are finished.
Top: Topshop (Similar Here)
Hi babes, I would like to show you this beautiful floral print ruched top I got from Topshop a while ago. I am a huge fan of vintage floral print and I really love how feminine it makes me feel. This top goes with almost anything, skirt, denim shorts and flared jeans, etc. Also, I am so in love with those pearl sandals that you have probably been seeing everywhere throughout this summer, haha. But they are just so cute and comfortable to wear :).
A little bit about life updates, I just got back from the Netherland two days ago and I am currently focusing on my studying while I am still on leave. Also, I have got some very sweet comments from my friends and colleagues about this blog recently. I would like to thank you for all your support encouragement as it means a lot to me! xx, Leah.
