Ok, so not quite golden, but yellow is close enough right?! Although, its never my first port of call in a gown, these ladies made it work (yellow that is) and equally looked stunning at last night’s 74th Golden Globe awards; as they graciously strutted down the red carpet, before stopping to smile and pose!

From the top left, clockwise; Natalie Portman wears a deep pastel yellow, almost-mustard floor length (three-quarter) sleeved gown, by Prada. Her look was very simple, elegant and I want to say; quite medieval!

Next, is the stunning Scandal star, Ms Kerry Washington. Personally, I do not favour this dress. However, Washington (who just had her second baby a few months ago) looked absolutely radiant down the red carpet in a Dolce & Gabbana dress. The see-through pale-golden yellow midi floral dress, was finished with angel wing-like shoulder cuffs and what looks like a broach embellished side belt (thing).Granted, its different and not really my cup of tea per se, but Kerry never fails to impress and (as I said) made it work!

In the bottom right hand corner; Hollywood walk of fame’s latest star; Viola Davis, wore the brightest yellow of them all and blissfully smiled for the camera (and later glided to the stage) in Michael Kors. The classic Greek style, floor length, one-shoulder gown, was a tasteful and subtle approach to “glitz & glam”.

Last but not least, my favourite (dress not person); Reese Witherspoon; in a pastel yellow Atelier Versace gown! Although its quite Prom-come-bridesmaid, I really like this dress. The classy length together with the saucy side slit, and the modern take to the classic sweetheart neckline; gives off a sexy sophisticated look; and completed with some simple jewellery, its picture perfect!

It turns out yellow isn’t so bad after all and hey, for the Golden Globes, its pretty appropriate wouldn’t you say?!

So  I know its been a while (a long long while) but I’m back and so is the VFTT. After almost a year of not having travelled any where, I thought it was time for a break a way- in the Sun of course. A lover of all things exotic, culture and beautiful landscape, I spent 10 amazing days in Bali, Indonesia. After my trip to Thailand in 2013, I know i’d be back to South-East Asia in no time and with only 10 days to spare this time, I know i’ll be back again.

Capturing moments, experiences and tropical element; through vibrant colours, nature and pre-summer time vibes; these View From the Top shots are just a snippet of my first trip to Bali.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

A break in between my studies and a failed attempt to unfreeze my gym membership, I had a craving for oreo cake. mmm.

I’d never made it before but thought id give it a try. I’m glad I did, because I don’t mean to blow my own trumpet, but it was bludy amazing.

Pretty good for a first try and a made up recipe; if you ask me. I didn’t really know how to go about it, so as you do, I relied on trusty old Google. However, all i got was recipes that use ‘devils food cake’ mix, IN A BOX, (I mean what happened to eggs, flour, sugar and butter?) or I got regular cake recipes that just had a dollop of Oreo frosting on the top. I was not having that! So I just made a chocolate cake, added my crumbled oreos and melted chocolate and popped it in the oven. Admittedly  it came out looking like a massive cookie, but once I whipped together the best oreo frosting; from creme cheese, double cream, icing sugar, butter and of course Oreos, It was good to go! Well to be honest, only after I decorated it with yet again even more oreos (mini ones this time), then it was well and truly ready to GO! Cut me a slice (or two) and had it for breaky, whilst watching “Breakfast at Tiffany’s! #perfect
