…Whilst these snaps were taken on a trip to Berlin earlier in the year (last year rather); I figured now is an appropriate time to share them! As fun as it was capturing the above, it took a one too many takes, a bellyache of laughter and it was actually quite difficult! But hey, the results are pretty cool- so heres to a year of PEACE, LOVE and amazing memories!

We’ve all been waiting for it and its finally here; 2017!!!

After a roller-coaster ride of 2016, heres to a new year; new goals, new dreams and new experiences! I for one am excited about the future and whats lies ahead. Once again, I plan on travelling to new destinations, ticking more off my bucket list and working on myself for the better! All the while, living life to the fullest -well within my means!

Heres a happy, healthy and fabulous year!

Wishing you all the best for the next 365 days; HAPPY NEW YEAR!

VFTT 266 Sunnies on Deck 2.0

…Well some of it. It may have been Bali, Cambodia and briefly Malaysia last year, but this year it was time to revisit Thailand and take my first trip to China. Honestly, with weather as cold as it is in Beijing at this time of year, I never saw myself visiting China anytime soon, but as a stop over destination en route to/from Thailand, I thought why not. After choosing the longest layover time, I looked into things to do with eight hours to spare in the capital of China and lo-and-behold I found myself at one of the “New 7 Wonders of the World” – The Great Wall of China! – And The View From the Top came too! Before jumping to The Great Wall, let’s not forget the craziness yet awesomeness that is Bangkok, along with the amazing sceneries of one of Thailand’s beautiful islands; Koh Tao! The VFTT tells all…

 

As 2013 draws to an end and everyone looks back on the year; reminiscing and dwelling on could haves, would haves and should haves; I have reflected on the year in fashion. From fabulous handbags to the latest trends, new store openings and celebrity clothing lines, I have put together some memorable fashion highlights from over the last 365 days.
Starting with my favourite, my inspirations, my main man; Marc Jacobs.

Marc Jacobs leaves Louis Vuitton

After 16 spectacular years as Louis Vuitton’s creative director, Marc Jacobs announced that he would be leaving the French fashion house to focus on his own brands. Since joining Louis Vuitton in 1997, Marc Jacobs transformed the luggage brand and created something sensational. The announcement came at the end of Paris Fashion week, where Jacobs truly put on a show for his last collection with LV; making a memorable exit.

Orange is the new black

With a summer of bright and vibrant colours, orange was definitely a personal favourite. From a bright Celine bag and statement shoes to a pop of colour and a pretty summer dress, orange was very much “the new black”. Even as winter  approached, the trend continued in beanie hats, Kenzo jumpers and even a few fur coats.

Kate Moss poses for Playboy

As Kate Moss approaches 40, she proves to be younger than ever as she is shot nude for the cover of Playboy. To celebrate 60 years of the worlds favourite men’s magazine (and brand), the January/ February (2014) issue will feature Britain’s face of fashion. The Supermodel will also appear in a 18-page pictorial in the coming Anniversary double issue. So watch this space.

D&G are sent to prison

The fashion designer duo; Dolce and Gabbana were sentenced to jail for tax evasion. Although the pair were initially cleared on the charge in 2011, the case was opened again and the 2 were accused of hiding million (in euros) from the Italian tax authorities. As it stands Dolce and Gabbana have avoided life behind bars (until further notice)  due to their suspended sentences, as a result of a pending appeal. Once again, watch this space.

Suits up

From the catwalks of fashion week to the urban runway that is street fashion, 2013 has seen more and more matchy matchy outfits. Matching tops to bottoms, the trend is very classical yet extremely modern, with an alternative twist. Going for the boyish look, some of the trend involves the traditional blazer and trouser type of suit, where others  are slightly more up to date and refreshing; matching crops to bottoms.

Heres to the end of 2013 and welcoming yet another year of fabulous memories, once -in-a-lifetime moments and plenty of glitz and glam! Let the countdown begin and bring on Two Thousand and Fourteen.

#story of my life

#story of my life

Living the life of a student is great, but there are ALWAYS those horrible times of year when “Stress” is my middle name!

Yep those dreaded exam periods; and just after Christmas; talk about ‘Happy New Year’….is it?
What I’d do to be a kid again eh. Stress free, full of energy and I’d get to run around in colorful rain again! I mean who didn’t love doing that? lol. Anyway, I really like this picture and thought it pretty much sums up the my life right now!

However….What I need to do is go shopping. Hit me up with a dose of retail therapy and then I’ll feel better. I’ve got 10 days to go and 2 weeks til payday. I’m just counting down the days.
