I’m so excited about the Mary Katrantzou capsule collection for Topshop that will be in stores on February 17.

Having a streamlined wardrobe means every item we buy should be well edited. And I think my wardrobe is in need of a few vibrant pieces to spruce things up. This 10-piece collection features her signature colourful prints and structured silhouette that is closely similar to her mainline collection.

While I love every single piece in the collection, I’m not sure I can carry off the bowl dress. Although Susie from Style Bubble certainly did it with effortless ease and style.

But I think that jersey dress, cropped floral pants and vibrant print blouse are versatile pieces that adds a dash of vibrance and sunshine. Nothing like some colours to brighten you up and bring some cheer to people around you too, right?

I’m sure there’s gonna be throngs of people camping outside the oxford circus store the night before.  Perhaps I can try my luck online at topshop.com at 8am and start hitting refresh. Crazy, huh.

It’s time to pack my bags as Italy beckons once again. Although I’m not a fan of the gloomy London weather, I do feel a little sad to leave. There are many interesting places here that I have grown to love. And so many more places that I have yet to see.

Here’s my ‘Best of London’ list in random order.

1. St James’s Park

2. Trafalgar Square

3. Big Ben

4. The food hall at Harrods

5. Liberty London, my favorite mall!

6. Brick Lane

7. Camden Town

8. Colombia road flower market

9. My favorite stalls at Borough Market

10. The cutest ice cream caravan at the British Museum

11. West End Musicals

And of course, always a soft spot for home.

Yesterday while randomly surfing youtube videos, I came across Millande’s channel on Art Journaling.
She is such an amazing artist. At first look, it seems like she is just randomly painting, drawing, doodling. But her finished piece… its amazing! Her techniques and combination of various media is so fascinating.
Check out her many many videos on her youtube channel here and be inspired!


Looking at her video on London grid journaling, it reminds me of the beginners graphic design class I took at Central Saint Martins in Autumn last year. Working in the IT industry and being an IT geek, I just wanted to do something different when I’m not at work. To learn something new.

Anyhow, in one of our field trips, we went to the British museum and was given the assignment to just sit in one of the room and draw what we see. Horrifying was it is! signals the left hemisphere of my brain. If the size of your head is determined by the size of your brain, I think I would only have half my head with an undeveloped right hemisphere. Yikes! But a task is a task.

I walked around the exhibition room, apprehensive, and started drawing in my little black notebook anyways. Random lines, objects, patterns. My drawing sucks so I shall not post them up to embarrass myself. But surprisingly, it was the most interesting, fun and relaxing hour of my life.

Try it! Just for fun. Find a place – it can be anywhere – or even your home, and just draw what you see. I hope you’ll find it a fun and relaxing experience like I did.
