Sun's out, guns out

How long have I been planning that title for? A very long time.



ASOS top / watch c/o Daniel Wellington* / UNIQLO trousers / Bass loafers

"What are you wearing?" asks YY as I walk towards her in this outfit. Slogan tees aren't really my thing, but I got this top for free at the ASOS stand at Fashion's Night Out last year, so I thought I might try to wear it (as most of my clothes had been haphazardly dumped in my suitcase). Why are the armholes so big? Why is the neck-hole (?) so small? I also think it's the first time I've worn these trousers which I bought in China, oops.

This is a scheduled post, I'm currently overseas. I'll be reading all your comments via email but won't be able to reply until I get back. If you have any burning questions, you can email me. Hope the holiday season is going well for everyone!

Test run

UNIQLO t-shirt and pants / Nike Free sneakers.

This what I'm planning on wearing in South America, so I took this outfit on a test run for errands in the city. At the time of writing I'm still not sure whether I'm going to pack my Docs or these Nike sneakers. The t-shirt is another UNIQLO men's one - it was only $7.90, one of their packaged "Dry" shirts (77% cotton, 23% polyester). I usually go for 100% cotton tops but I'm hoping for the better sweat wicking promised with this t-shirt. I notice that there's no equivalent product in their ladies range, because apparently ladies don't sweat. These kinds of loose pants I've recently started liking (shout out to Deb for being my pants twin). They are so comfortable and breezy for warmer weather, I feel like I am literally wearing my pyjamas in public. The only con with pants like these is that 100% rayon doesn't have much stretch. These have a drawstring, but I just tuck the ends away.

Travel first aid kit


I like to be prepared for everything and that's amplified x1000 when I'm overseas. This is what I pack as my first aid kit in my suitcase just in case, and I carry a mini version around with me during the day.

  • Band-aids, pain killers, travel sickness medication - pretty self explanatory.
  • Antihistamines - I get really bad allergies, not just in spring, so I try to take enough to last the whole trip.
  • Gastro-stop - I feel like it's always a risk of eating anything overseas, but I've never actually had to take these; fingers crossed my luck doesn't run out.
  • Sports tape - bit pointless but just in case I want to tape my dodgy knee for anything. I'm more likely to use this to fix other objects, it's really sticky.
And also other first aid-y sort of things, like hand sanitiser, sunscreen, insect repellant, and of course, your personal lady products if you need them. Do you guys do a first aid kit when you travel? Or do you wing it and buy things as you need them (which is probably more sensible...)?

Spring/summer







A roundup of photos from late spring/early summer before I left, involving flowering trees, eating pomelo while sick in bed, drinking lots of Starbucks Christmas drinks (the iced version of the peppermint mocha is so much better!), IKEA meatballs, braving the Christmas crowds while shopping and a crazy kitten at the pet store.
