Bright Red

On a Sunny day, this red blouse is super bright. I kind of found myself standing out in a sea of summery pastels when I was waiting around for friends. Not that I mind, but it's like when you step out of the house in coloured tights only to realise that the tights are a shade brighter than you expected in the sunlight!

So as I mentioned a few posts ago, I was in London for the day and I found myself browsing the Gogo Philip in Topshop. I could have walked off with the entire stand but I chose these prism earrings which are now my new favourite piece of jewellery everrr!

After waiting around in the sun, my friends arrived and we had lunch at Bodega and feasted on yummy sweet potato fries!

Sally, Hannah and I then ventured off to our second independently owned place and found ourselves in the 6/8 Kafé where we had the best tea ever!

Tea time
I'm quite the advocate of tea in all shapes and forms and I loved this fruit tea called Apple loves Mint. I'm not too fond of overly sweet tea and the rosebud added just the right amount of sweetness. Such a pretty tea!

Oooh my sister Hailey returned yesterday from her 2 months away in SE Asia and she bought me back some goodies. Along with a couple of Malaysian mags (Harpers and Hanger) that she read on the plane, she also presented me with a few bits and bobs...
Goodies!
I love them all. I have wanted Hello Kitty Fuji Instax film ever since I got my camera. I've also needed to replace my eyelash curlers and have always loved the Shu Uemura ones (I have some mini ones) and she awesomely bought a set from duty free! I also received this ring which she has a matching one of which she picked up when she was in Vietnam!

I feel so spoiled! Thank you Hailey :)

  9. The red suits you so well, Winnie. It's good to stand out from the sea of beige/nude summer shades that are around, but are actually pretty draining. xx

  28. The earrings are a hit! I seriously have started to have this jewellery fever recently, so I've been browsing like crazy, and I really like abstract jewellery, or well, something that looks like jewellery, not like animals or food :P Plus red goes really well with your hair Winnie!

  33. I will always give a 100% thumbs up to any cafe that serves sweet potato fries - they're my favourite and the only place I have found them in so far is Guerilla Burger in London!

  35. The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler is such a HG item, hehe loved it but since the Shiseido one is a carbon copy, I got that instead.

    You look awesome in that blouse!

    What a fun day you had. :)

  38. I love your shirt so much. I adore almost anything red at the moment, I have been wearing so much of that colour. It looks amazing with the blue belt.

  39. That ring's so cool and I love the red dress, you look great, and I was in the exact same situation as you once. I had a bright pink coat for Winter and when I first went outside in it, I just though "Oh no, is this too bright?" And I'm land-locked myself, I was only able to get those photos on holiday so I need another one soon! xxx

  53. Most women tend to be more reasonable and go for a simple gifts for girls color that will match easily with all that you have in the wardrobe. This rolex datejust watches prevents you from having a headache when you need to go on an outing with a matching catier jewellery.
