Maldives, Dubai, Madrid – What A Week!

I am so tired. SO TIRED! I’ve had the most incredible week, seeing the most beautiful things and exhausting myself in great YOLO fashion. I want to tell you more, really I do. But my bed is calling my name, my eyelids are cursing me and I’m pretty sure my insta’s speak for themselves. Time is flying (literally), and looking back at the week I have just had, the nerves are beginning to kick in as I have just over two months left till I move back to Cape Town. So much to send home, so much to leave behind, so much to see, so much to look forward to. The only thing more impossible than leaving this life behind would be staying in it much longer. My definition of “normal” is quite ridiculous. xx

I'M WEARING, INSTA-BREED, TOKYO / Monday / March 25th, 2013

Tokyo Quickie

Prada sunnies, skirt, blouse and neckpiece all from Mr Price, shaggy black chubby from United colours of Benetton, Primark leather gloves, Nike Blazer high tops, vintage leather bag from Hong Kong.

Excuse the bad photo quality but I am the silly girl who goes to Tokyo for thirty hours just to shoot street style and gets there with dead camera batteries and no conversion adaptor for my charger. ANYWAY. Thanks to le iPhone 5 and Instagram, this is what I wore when visiting Shibuya and the Harajuku fashion district. I’ll be sharing the rest of my snaps from there soon but if you’re super impatient you can check them out here. 
I actually can’t show you anymore photographs of me there because I tried to be so Japanese that I flashed the “peace” sign pretty much in every image. You would get annoyed. Will be sharing the Instagram photo diary soon though, I’m so excited to show you what I saw!

Sorry I’ve been so absent, since Tokyo I’ve been in Manila, Guangzhou and Shanghai for work and recently treated myself to a little weekend in Istanbul and lots of sleep in between. I can’t keep rocking the “jet lag swag” look, all the flying is taking it’s toll on my body and I have to put myself first for now, March has been (and is going to continue to be) a pretty crazy month. However I’ve got about twenty days leave in April, ridiculously excited to have a break and see beautiful Cape Town again!

Happy Monday everyone :)
