Paris Photo Diary & Tips

As promised, I have been quite prompt with my next Europe photo diary post, and I am very excited to share this one with you.
It is, of course, about our time in the incredibly, insanely beautiful city of Paris, where we spent ten days in June. Enjoy!

Dublin Photo Diary & Tips

Well, it feels very good to say that this is my second post for this week. I've been in a huge slump with being unemployed and bored with myself and therefore having no motivation (funny how that works), but things have started falling into place in the last few days so I'm back to feeling motivated to write posts.

Dublin was the second location we visited in Ireland, and our last stop in an English-speaking country. I think it's safe to say we both grew quite attached to Ireland, and we both gazed sadly out the windows of the airport bus when we had to leave.

Read on, my friends!

Cork Photo Diary & Tips

Once again, I'm falling way behind on posting about my trip in June/July, with no real excuse except that I've been especially lazy and watching Friends and re-watching Game of Thrones as I perform job-hunt after job-hunt day after day.

Anyway, enough of the chit-chat. Continuing on from my last post, we left Edinburgh and arrived in the lovely but tiny city of Cork in Ireland.

Edinburgh Photo Diary & Tips

After London, we headed off on the train to Edinburgh. We only had a few short days there, so my experience and advice is slightly limited in this sense. Next time I visit (and for anyone who has a longer amount of time there) I would definitely try and see more of the Scottish countryside as well as perhaps visiting the famous Loch Ness. 
Below are my tips based on our limited time in the extremely beautiful city of Edinburgh!

Refined Rocker

Half Moon

Clu loose t shirt / Yves Saint Laurent leather motorcycle jacket / Rag & Bone relaxed fit jeans / Yves Saint Laurent beatle boots, $760 / Crown hat

At the moment, there are a few things I'm obsessing over just a little bit. These are the biker jacket (which I have always been a huge fan of), the boyfriend jean and felt wide-brim hats, specifically in a purple/burgundy colour. 

I'm also just generally digging the above look. I'm not sure what the official name is for it, but I like to call it 'Refined Rocker'. Ripped jeans, biker jacket, clean polished boot and loose-fitting t-shirt. If this was a man, I'd marry it.

I was lucky enough to find the perfect biker jacket while I was overseas, which I will share in a future outfit post (coming soon, I promise!). On the other hand, I was stupid enough to pass up the perfect hat before I went away, thinking "I'll just find one overseas", which of course I didn't. And of course now the hat I saw is nowhere to be found.

I refuse to give up hope in finding the perfect boyfriend jean and hat, but in the meantime I can lust after the ones above. A girl can dream.

London Photo Diary & Tips

I have been trying to work out how I will tackle my posts about my Europe trip and what kind of format they will take on. I finally figured that writing it like a journal with accompanying photos would probably require a post each day for the next eight weeks just to cover the eight weeks I was away. And let's face it, ain't nobody got time for that.
Therefore, I have decided to organise it in the following manner.We begin our adventure in London town.

Honey, I'm home!

Well, after a super long hiatus (over two months) I am back!
I returned from my eight week Europe trip a couple of days ago and I'm still trying to catch up on sleep and life.

Before I left, I had said that I might be able to blog a bit while we were away. Once we got there, I realised it was going to be near impossible between not having a computer with me, being non-stop throughout the day and also just generally trying to live in the moment and enjoy myself.
Those of you who follow me on Instagram would have experienced me spamming everyone's feed with pictures each day (not sorry), which may or may not have made up for my absence on my blog.

As I decided to call this a 'fashion AND travel' blog, now begins the process of typing up some very delayed posts about the trip, including photos from my camera and hopefully some tips and information on where to go and things to see, as well as all-important shopping tips.

I also bought way too many clothes (is there even such a thing?), so I'm hoping I will be able to get back to outfit posts in the next week or so as well. I'm so excited to share what I bought!

Watch this space!
