The last of the Mexico trip (though I’m laughing when I say this, there’s still millions of photos I haven’t shown). One of the highlights of Mexico was Chichen Itza, a Mayan temple. The history of the place was astonishing.
Then we went to swim in a senote, an underground river. We were led into a tiny opening, only to arrive inside a cave, lit by a tiny stream of natural light. The cool water was deliciously refreshing after the sticky Mexican heat.
It was the colours, more than anything, that really captured my imagination in Mexico. Everything was bold and to some extent even gaudy when alone, but the sheer abundance of colour made for an amazing atmosphere. Valladolid was one such town that really embodied this.
Riviera Maya, Mexico. There’s a reason why I haven’t posted the photos from my travels yet. I had to trawl through over 2,000 of them. Our first stop was Mexico and as you can see, it’s pure paradise. I have never met a nation who were so welcoming and friendly, or a place so rich in culture. I find myself craving this place from time to time, a feeling which I don’t think will ever leave me.
Skincare: Clarins Edition. I have been loving all these products since Christmas, so thought it was about time I told you all about them! Have been working on filming and editing by myself, so let me know if you like it!

Well it’s been a busy week trying to get organised for my big trip. I finished up work at the weekend and since then have spent most of my time meeting up with friends, packing and trying to get my bikini body ready (let’s not bring that bit up again!) Here’s just a couple of photos I took over the last few days. I HAD to buy this pomeranian t-shirt in Urban Outfitter, cute eh? I also got a lovely Jasper Conran bikini in the sales. I’ll be back to outfit posts when I’m away. I’m planning on blogging regular outfit posts and also some beauty and travel pieces too, so don’t forget to follow Soooali on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/Soooali) to get alerts about blog updates. You can also follow me on Twitter and Instagram @Soooali, where I post stuff in real time!
My big sister got married a couple of weeks ago, and what an affair! Both my sisters live in the UK, so I was so happy to have them at home for so long. The dress I wore was from Coast. I wanted something bright for the day, but still classy. That’s why I went for a shift dress. My sister wore a vintage wedding dress which looked so perfect on her. Big congratulations to the bride and groom!
Today’s activities; a trip to Ikea, where I had to stop myself from buying every single packing/organisation thingee. The dreaded weekly food shop…why is it always freezing in supermarkets? And finally, dinner in Musashi with delicious sushi and even more delightful friends! I opted for a very mature polo neck and tweed riding jacket. (I also had a very granny-esque thermal vest underneath, the less mentioned about that the better!)
Well I’ve spent months and months locked away in work, saving my little bum off and now it’s time to do something big. I’m heading stateside for a few weeks; Mexico, Miami, Orlando, San Francisco & Las Vegas (baby). Then I’ll be packing my life into a suitcase and making my way to Stockholm with M for another adventure. We have no definite plans of what we’ll do there, but hopefully we can find a job we like and the rest will fall into place.
Any of you guys have any tips for shopping/restaurants/general fun in the USA? Leave comment on my facebook page; https://www.facebook.com/Soooali
Sigh, it’s good to be back!
Here’s a little sneak peak into my Autumn wardrobe. When I was in Stockholm last week the temperature had dropped dramatically, so I gave my new tweed jacket a trial run! It was my birthday yesterday and the jacket was a present from my parents, but they gave it to me early. We went to visit Artipelag, a gallery out in the beautiful archipelago. The weather was so crisp and sunny, it was beautiful and made the day even more special.
Looking forward to Autumn now!
