Get your sport on

I am not even over-exaggerating! This season's sports wear inspired collections are everywhere and they motivate everyone to get in motion! (me at least, anyway). Adidas looks like the winner with their new collabs with names such as Pharrell, Italian Independent, Rita Ora and Mary Katrantzou (no official sketches are released yet, unfortunately). DKNY x Cara has also been a long awaited capsule collection by the up and coming model Cara Delevigne; undoubtedly many people's role model. Launched a few days ago, the collection has been getting a lot of media attention. Did you know Cara selected the faces of her campaign personally?

AND THE HIT OF THE SEASON. Alexander Wang x H&M due to launch November 6th online & in selected H&M stores worldwide. Need I say more?

Rita Ora x Adidas


Keeping an eye on the release date, I bought myself this sweater very soon after the collection launch! Safe to say it is my favorite piece.



Highlights -
black & white with color splash,
soft pastels,
 all back everything,

Parisian Day Time

Endless walking and discoveries. Sore feet but still smiling. Saturday was spent exploring the bohemian Montmartre located on a hill north of Paris, Notre Dame, Pompidou area, and Boulevard Haussmann-Lafayette. Sunday was a half day so it was declared the museum day exploring the Louvre and the Duchamp Retrospective @ Pompidou Centre.

Montmartre was definitely my favorite, not because of its current state but because of what it used to be and represent. If you have watched Moulin Rouge, you may know that during the turn of the 20th century this was the center of the 'Bohemian Revolution' - did this actually happen or not happen is another question. But it was certainly the heart of music, art and performance at that time. Renowned artists such as Dali, Monet, Mondrian, Picasso and van Gogh lived and worked here at one point in their life adding to the culture of the area. There is the Montmartre museum and the Salvador Dali museum in the area. This time I didn't have a chance to go, but next time it is going to be at the top of my to-do list.

Window Shopping

Quick croissant, coffee to go... you find yourself looking at the window displays. Sound familiar?


Well minus the croissant and coffee that was me walking through Avenue Montaigne. For those who don't know this is the 'it' street off of Champ Elysees featuring all the biggest designer, mainly couture names you can think of. We aren't talking designer, we are talking pure luxury.

Night time glam in the City of Love

Paris for the first weekend of October? Paris is always a good idea, so why not?

A weekend in Paris felt like an eternity because it was packed with so much to do. For my luck it was also Nuit Blanche, a whole night filled with cultural activities ranging from performances, installations, videos and art. I also had no idea the museums were free the first Sunday of every month, which meant a free trip to the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa (as much as we could anyway thanks to the people trying to take selfies with it!).
