Hello! I’m back from an incredible week in New York! The Big Apple was certainly impressive. Before I tell you guys what I got up to, I want to thank all of you who emailed, tweeted and facebooked tips and advice. All of it was so helpful and really made my trip more enjoyable, so cheers!
I arrived at lunch time and made my way straight to the hotel, which was quite compact but really nice and right in the middle of Manhattan. We went straight to Top of the Rock to view the whole city which was a brilliant decision. Then the next day we took a tour around the whole city so that we got a feel for where everything was. The whole week was spent eating in some delicious restaurants; Shake Shack, Maoz, Rocco’s, The Spotted Pig and Five Guys and sightseeing; Central Park, The Met and MOMA.
One of my favourite days was when we got on the Staten Island Ferry to see the Statue of Liberty, then we took a picnic from Dean and Deluca to Washington Square Park and sat listening to the grand piano while dipping our feet in the fountain. The night was topped off by cocktails in The Palace and a bite to eat in the famous Le Bernardin….perfection!
I took a few photos of different outfits I wore during the week, so I’ll be sharing them all with you. Also, I’m doing a little giveaway soon so watch this space.
If you aren’t already, you can follow me on facebook http://www.facebook.com/Soooali where I post a lot more of my fashion and beauty related thoughts!
Beauty and Hair Essentials: Travel Edition
I’m off to NYC at the end of the week and as I was getting ready, I thought I would share some of my travel must-haves!
So for those of you who wanted to get a closer look at the outfit I was wearing in yesterday’s video post, I thought I’d give you a closer look! Heels and jeans are one of my favourite combinations. Dressy/casual is my thing!
Top and bag are Penneys, Zara jeans and M&S shoes!
I’m baaaack!! There have been many trials and tribulations, but I won’t type them here, that’s what the video is for!
Hey guys! This went up on my YouTube channel last week, I just hadn’t had a chance to put it up here yet. I had a great opportunity to go to a Benefit/Diet Coke event to celebrate their collaboration and three new looks. There’s a chance to win Benefit make up every time you buy a can of Diet Coke…tempting, eh? So in honour of this I decided to make this video and merge some of my favourites from the goodie bag and some of the products I already use……Best of Benefit!
Ok, so maybe it’s just the thesis that’s making me go crazy or maybe it’s because I only have THREE MONTHS left of university…either way my brain is adled and the fashion side of it is craving colour. Isn’t this such a sweet jumper? I got it in Penneys a few weeks ago and it’s delicious. I’ve tried to minimise the potential frumpyness of it by throwing on this super bling necklace….dunno if that’s working though!! I’ve a lot on my plate at the moment with college and work but I managed to make a couple of videos over the weekend. I’ll try to get them up as soon as possible!
Jumper and trousers from Penneys, Marks and Spencer shirt, OVS shoes and H&M necklace.
I took these photos while in Stockholm and forgot to post them…thought I’d stick them up anyway. I told you I was sticking to muted colours, so here’s my first step into the land of colour this year. However I feel like a but of a fraud because I’m actually wearing a bright raspberry knitted jumper as I write this…! It is February afterall. I’m so glad I invested in so many knitted jumpers due to the recent cold snap. They’re so easy to wear too. I usually wear a million t-shirts underneath and jeans…stick on some chunky accessory or scarf and tada…instant fash-un! The thesis is getting priority as usual but I managed to make a video which I’ll be posting later in the week. So because of all the work I have to do I’ve been looking for outfits that work as uniforms for college, something I don’t have to think much about. I also cut all my hair off too (the less distraction the better!) which you’ll see in the next post. Like I said in a previous post I’m cutting down on clothes and creating a capsile wardrobe. I guess I’m detoxing my life somehow. That is until June when I’ll be free FOREVER!
Jumper from H&M, jeans from Gina Tricot, shirt from Uniqlo, shoes and brooch from Topshop.
Hola! I was in Madrid last week, so I’m only getting to post now. I didn’t get a chance to take many photos while I was there and didn’t bother with outfits. I’ll put some up on the Soooali Facebook page for anyone who’s interested. I hadn’t been to Madrid before and was completely surprised by just how much there was to do there. I went with 30 art fanatics and we were all spoilt for choice. I definitely have to go back for longer next time. The weather was amazing, bright sunny and warm. I forgot there was such a thing as sun! Even though the weather has been quite mild here it’s been as dull as ever…however January is nearly over and with that comes February and a whole new world of possibilities! Haha! I’m still sticking to black for the time being though. Baby steps…one at a time.
