My trip to York

You might not be wondered where the hell I have been missing for the past 2 weeks but literally I WENT MISSING, for real. Since it was my most favourite person in this entire world ‘s birthday last week and also because I was desperately in need of a weekend getaway, it took me no time to decide that I would spend the next following days travelling.

So yes,  no doubt that York was the perfect destination because what would be better than celebrating my girl’s 19th birthday and Valentine’s day in the most beautiful place in the UK. Hence, she actually lives in York so yeah, basically York is the destination, period 🙂

It was such a wonderful trip and everything was literally beyond my expectation. For whatever reason, everything was so on point, even the weather was so supportive. Although it was mid February the weather was so sunny and warm, things happened just like planned and we had the most amazing time together.

The moment captured 2 mins right after she picked me up at the train station, literally screamed my name and we hugged till my Asian lungs cant take it anymore 🙂

After some cheeky drinks, some catch up stories, I felt that moment again; like we were living in the moment again, like it was just yesterday back when we were living in the same room, same house in Brighton. Having conversation with you brought back so much memories when we were sitting together in the backyard, with PJ on and messy hair; having beers and talked for hours about all the “deep shit” in life. I still remembered we dreamed about the moment when we have made into uni and all the exam stress was gone for good, guess what, we have indeed made it and we are now living in the moment that we have always been dreaming of. Being with you right here, right now and we are together; it feels like we were never been apart. Isn’t it strange?

I would say that we were having a pretty damn awesome birthday and hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Everything was so amazing, the dinner, the surprise, the cake and don’t forget about the smash into Jack’s pretty face. All of us were having a great night and you know what, it all happened because of you; you were the one who brought all of us together and made a great big weird happy family. 3 day trip was not long enough to enjoy every little pretty thing in York but I am sure it was just long enough for me to get to know with everyone in your new family who made such a small but great part of your life; and luckily I know that I am always welcomed to be a part of it.

There was one thing that made my trip to be extra special and it was because of the new happiness that you have finally found. Seeing you through his eyes helped me to realise 1 thing that we both have in common: we both truly love you very much. And yes, of course I would not say no to adopt another member to Alice’s team who is well known as a big fan of chicken, rugby, tea and New Zealand.

My couple of the year because they looked absolutely gorgeous together ❤

The last word should be dedicated to show my appreciation to the beauty of York and to the people who live in here because they are just so sweet and kind and I literally just can’t get enough of it. Undoubtedly, this trip was so unforgettable that I might need to be back really really soon.

Winter/Spring Look book 2017

It is 2017 and Spring is finally here. Living in the UK does not allow you to have a sunny weather frequently but once the sun peaks out, it is absolutely wonderful to throw on some nice outfits and freshen up the wardrobe.

As my trip to London a couple days ago was to visit my bestie and to celebrate the Lunar New Year, I think this occasion would be a great excuse for myself to get some new outfits and refresh up my wardrobe for 2017.

So here are some of my outfit ideas for Winter/Spring. Most of the outfits are from my fav brands and I just loveee it.

 

 

1. The Cold-Shoulder Look:

I personally prefer this outfit for a casual day as the items combined are really simple but you still can be really sexy with the cold shoulder jumper as it helps showing up some skin. A tiny twist could be done to turn the simple look into a bold one by rolling up the sleeves or adding the choker and big chunky watches to the outfit. To spice it up, I add the leather jacket to the outfit and wear the over the knee boots with my ripped skinny jeans.

Jumper: MissGuided

Skinny Jeans: Topshop

Over the knee Boots: Bershka

Jacket: Zara

Watches: Olivia Burton

Choker: Forever 21

2. The second Cold-Shoulder Look:

Yes, I am obsessed with jumper, especially with the off shoulder ones. And yes, I know I did just show you the cold shoulder outfit number one but this cold shoulder outfit number two is just so freakin’ cute and cosy and I just CBA not to know you another one.

Jumper: MissGuided

Choker: Forever 21

3. The casual party Look:

If you are not a big fan of wearing heels or bodycon dresses for parties, this outfit is for you. Sometimes, if I am invited not-so-formal parties, I would much prefer wearing outfit like this over classy dresses and heels because lets be honest, all the jumper dresses are just so comfortable but still very sexy. By replacing the heels to the over the knee boots; rolling up the sleeves and adding accessories, I personally think the outfit looks really edgy.

Jumper Dress: MissGuided

Over the knee Boots: Bershka

Watches: Olivia Burton

Choker: Forever 21

4. The Cosy Look:

If you live in England, you would probably know how freakin’ cold the weather is and I know that some of the outfits here would not be the best outdoor option. However, you could always throw on a big cosy coat and a scarf like I do in this outfit and you are so ready to go. This coat could combine with any outfit underneath as the colour is quite neutral and you could always take the coat off whenever you want to show the main look.

Coat: Pull&Bear

Scarf: Zara

Crossbody Wallet: Chanel

The coat was purchased last year on Boxing Day and I been loving it till now, it is super cosy, long and still fashionable. I was given this scarf as my Christmas present this year and lets me tell you, I am absolutely living in it.

5. Accessories:

Can somebody just give me a moment to show my appreciation to the choker design of Forever 21. And yes, as you can clearly see that the choker appeared in all of my look because I just genuinely love it so so much.

Even my bestie and I got the matching choker both from Forever 21 and they just looked to bomb.

 

I genuinely hope that some of these outfit ideas would be the inspiration for you to create your best new look for 2017.

 

Love,

Alice
