Indian Wedding

Henna

I’ve been to five weddings all my life and three of the five happen to be Indian, lucky for me, I love Indian weddings, the colour, the costumes, the energy, the love, it’s really beautiful. For those who know me know i’m obsessed with all things Indian and Middle Eastern (i’m aware they are completely different), there’s just something foreign and intriguing about the cultures that lures me, speaking of which, I should really brush up on my arabic, I barely remember the alphabets now, it’s been awhile since college.

This last wedding I attended was the wedding of a close family friend Shane’s wedding to her lucky groom Rahul. Here are some behind the scenes shots I took over the course of the three days in Phuket, Thailand.

This post is dedicated to you Shaney.

With love.

Barristers’ Ball

So Georgetown Law held their Barristers’ Ball on Friday night and the theme was The Roaring Twenties. Honestly I wasn’t even planning on going since every month or so I have this need to go to New York and it had been like 6 weeks since I last went. BUT, after realizing that everyone was going I changed my mind cuz I do have FOMO. With so little time to prepare I decided against going with the theme, and really what would I do with a flapper dress after the event anyway? Luckily, I brought my S. Nine dress which I love to death and actually had quite a ball at the ball.

I also made it to my 9:30am bus to New York the next morning. Double thumbs up.

Richard Chai Love and Men’s Fall/Winter 2013

I was in New York over Chinese New Year, where Jing met me en route to her South Africa trip.  That week so happened to coincide with New York Fashion Week, and thanks to my very creative and talented sister who works for Richard Chai, we got to see his Fall 2013 RTW Show!

While waiting for the show, Jing and I had a fun time people watching, can you spot some familiar faces sitting in the front row?

Mr. and Mrs. James Bracey

As I travelled before and after the wedding, it was difficult packing for the wedding so I decided to wear:

Twenty8Twelve dress/ Gucci clutch / Roger Vivier shoes / Ksubi sunglasses / Mitch was wearing Burberry head to toe and Tod’s =)

The last picture was taken just before all the speeches by the groomsmen, they were petrified, that is minus the groom, who does a wonderful job delivering sports news on Sky Sports for a living. Public speaking is not my forte either.

New Zealand’s Incredible South Island

I attended a friends wedding recently in New Zealand, somewhere I have to admit was not on my priority travel list, but as I was researching South Island, I discovered how foolish I was to overlook such a gem. I’m not kidding, rolling hills, fresh crisp air, wildlife, fantastic food, amazing people, vineyards, oysters, lodges, i could go on forever, I love it so much I started planning my next trip there on the plane back.

The next few post is a brief photo diary of my trip, I hope through my photos you will love New Zealand as much as I did.
