On Deck

A while ago, Nat, Bryant and I boarded the ferry for Cheung Chau for a 5-hour long dose of island life- an escape of sorts. These photos were snapped en-commute, just as the sun started to come out after a morning's worth of showers. I'm not one to wear any form of skin-tight garment head-to-toe, thus thanking the online shopping gods for Asos peg trousers and their ability to grandma-fy any crop top and give the perfect food-baby capacity (something i really took advantage of that day). We had so much fun shooting and i can't wait to show you the rest of the outfits!

Took these photos on my film camera because a)  My sister was packing the DSLR away for her trip to the UK b) I was too lazy. Like everyone and their mother i'm quite liking the matchy-set thing, which aside from the print also allows me to dress moderately lady-like without giving much thought or effort. In other words, I've discovered that my personal endeavours commonly orbit around my desire to be very lazy- picture the solar system with laziness as a very big, very hot Sun. At the beginning of the week my dad made me go to the gym with him (hold on, it gets better) and after two days of running and pulling on metal stuff, my legs have turned to jelly and I now walk with the speed of a grandma at leisure. Might go back (might not) but i think it's time for a lifelong hiatus. And the braids= intense third grade flashbacks and alien vibes in a good way, for me anyway.

Playlist- Happy July!

July is always a special month (and that's partially due to but not consumed by the fact that I am turning 18 the day after tomorrow and the prospect of looming adulthood gives me cramps). Late enough in the summer spectrum to actually feel like it, and early enough to allow ignorance regarding a return to our individual educational institutions in the fall. A time for travelling, beer, ice cream and air-con hopping- speaking of which, I will be visiting Seoul at the end of the month which is very exciting. Hope you enjoy the hour-long compilation of tunes and I'll talk to you soon, most likely after I can no longer call myself a (technical terms needed) kid.

June Film Photo Diary

I bought a film point and shoot camera at the beginning of the month and here are a few shots from my first roll of film. I'm quite the film photography novice so excuse the frequent out-of-focus shots and such. My camera is starting to grow on me as I can't bear lugging my DSLR around in this heat. Hope you like the photos! Shot on an Olympus superzoom 105R with Fujifilm ISO 100 film.
