London Walkabout + OOTD

Aloha Ladies!

So I’ve been wanting to post this walkabout for agees but I’ve just never had the time to put together the pictures (which are scattered across various locations on social media, my memory stick and my desktop). This would be my second Walkabout post. If you’ve missed my first one click here. A walkabout is basically me strolling around various locations taking pictures of this and of that (haha TINSP reference).

So this Walkabout is also photography-related. It was a school trip to London that I went to, last October. It was quite a hectic but very enjoyable day. We went to various locations.

These pictures were taken near Trafalgar Square (Where the National Gallery is). Isn’t the Victorian architecture simply stunning??

We also visited The Monument which was close to St. Dunstan’s Church in East London. Here’s are some photos of the burn Church that I actually used for my Photography project Phobias.This series is intended to represent the fear of empty spaces.

Quite grungy, no? The Church was actually no where near as spooky as portrayed by these edits haha. Oh, the power of Photoshop.

Here’s a more nicer looking, generic, touristy picture of The Gherkin, East London.

Off Course, all this walking and getting in and out of tubes was exhausting the hell out of me. So as one must do, I grabbed one.

Camera 360

And I believe, our final, formal visit was to South Bank.

I obviously had to slip a quick ootd, for those who can’t care less about architecture, burnt churches and caramel frappes.Thank you Manisha for this lovely shot ❤

And if you’re wondering, the camera that I have around my neck is my FujiFilm S2800. It’s what I used to take all the photos above (with the exception of the drink).

I thought I would also casually sneak in a cropped camera selfie teehee

My henna was done at a Sudanese charity fair 🙂

And last, but not least. I thought I would end this post with my favourite picture of the entire trip. It was also taken in South Bank.

I just see happiness whenever I look at this. Sunshine, bubbles, children. But most importantly bubbles because they look seriously cool.

Anwaysss that’s it for now. Let me know if you enjoy these kinds of posts!

Until next time, take care ❤

OOTD: Grey Skies

Aloha ladies!

I am back with a regular fashion post huraah!
I have no idea why I have been procrastinating to do this one since I took these photos waay back, on Eid Al-Adha. Second day of Eid to be more precise. My local Sudanese community did a gathering to celebrate as usual, and it happened to be a BBQ party at a nearby park.

So I chose to go with a smart/sailor girl dress code that at the same time provided the comfortable feel of casual clothes. If you know me well, you know that I am obsessed with the colour grey. It makes a healthy 60% of my wardrobe LOL. So let’s take a closer look at the outfit!

Top | H&M
Cardigan | AX Paris
Scarf | Louis Vuitton replica (China)
Skirt | China
Shoes | Deichmann

Can I just take a moment to hype about how much I am in love with this skirt. I’ve literally made so much new outfit combinations with it! Let me know if you would like to this kind of thing (1 item, several outfits). I also have it in grey and peach but still on the look out for the perfect top for it.

My “Sailor Girl” cardigan as I like to call it is from a local stockist of AX Paris and other brands. I did buy it 1 year ago, so I am not sure if it will still be on their website. Take a look regardless. I did take it with me to Sudan, this year and everyone loved it.

Here are the accessories up close:

Bag | Accessorize
Left hand watch | D&G
Left hand bracelet | Marks & Spencer
Right hand bracelet | Forever 21

I told you guys that I’ve been wearing my F21 cuff bracelet everywhere. Click here if you want to see the haul post about it. Also, I chose red nail polish for a ‘pop of colour’. I don’t usually wear anything but neutrals.

So I guess that’s it for now!

Until next time

Take care 🙂

OOTD: MCM Comic Con + Mini Haul

Aloha guys!

I am back with a new post and hopefully you will enjoy it!
So last May, there was a Comi Con event held in Excel, London which I  was really excited about because I love Cosplay and dress up and anything  anime. I took the tube at 8 to, with my friend Sara and we arrived there at 9:30am.

So here’s the outfit! I know…I know I didn’t dress up. But that’s because its hard finding modest Cosplay. So I just decided to go with an “it’s nearly Summer” kind of outfit. Items that I don’t mention are either purchased from abroad or I genuinely don’t remember…sorry.

Blouse | Matalan
Bag | Fiorelli (stolen of Sara)
Shoes | Deichman

Here’s a picture of some of the attenders #Awesomeness Overload
I love how the Assassin’s Creed dressers and Pirates blend in and then there’s that one guy in Spiderman, hanging on for dear life LOL.

Afterwards, we decided to go Westfield, Stratford fo some shoppinnn.
I seriously love the Forever 21 there because of how spacious it is compared to the Oxford Street one. The New Look and H&M are flagship as well. I didn’t want to go crazy though – the Spring/Summer collection was b e a u t i f u l – but yo I was going on holiday 2 months after and I wanted to save money.
I was thinking for sometime on building a ring collection (because I literally have no rings) so the first item I bought is a massive Shield  ring from New Look. In F21, I ended up going for a gold hand chain because why ever not? I also fell in love with this cream, bendable, cuff bracelet which is outlined in gold metallic that has a subtle reflection (I wear it EVERYWHERE now).

And to perfectly end the day, we grabbed some froyo’s from Yo Moo. And yep, mine is the pot that’s overflowing hehe.
But it was some serious frozen yoghurt o.O

Anyyyyway…..I guess that’s an  informal farewell from me!

Until next time. Take care 🙂
