Lost and Found
Although today’s post was shot in sunny Beijing, I’m now sitting in my amazing hotel room in Shanghai where I’ll be for the next two days. Travel definitely has to be one of the biggest perks work offers, it’s always exciting to have a change of scene and see something different – and I always feel so energized when I arrive in a different city!
Speaking of perks, one of the benefits of Ollie’s work in the snowboard industry is (a) meeting lots of awesome snowboarders from around the world who come to China to compete in or judge Mellowparks events, and (b) scoring some sick snowboard gear! For this outfit I wore my WESC ’Lost and Found’ pro model tee – a gift from renown snowboarder Ingemar Backman when he was here in January. The purple beanie was also a gift, from the lovely Liz Kim and her Korean snowboard sponsors. Ok, so I guess technically these were gifts for Ollie – but he can’t possibly need them all, right? Haha.

Thanks for reading, and if you want to follow me I’ll be updating Twitter and Facebook with photos from Shanghai. Til tomorrow then - I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday! :)

Qian Men 前门
Happy Monday everyone!
How was your weekend? I spent yesterday catching up on all my favourite blogs – and drooling over the Milan fashion shows haha. Today’s outfit was shot by Qian Men (前门 – meaning ‘Front Gate’), on our way to brunch at Capital M last weekend. Qian Men used to guard the southern entry to the Inner City and the Forbidden City itself. Qian Men street is now one of the few pedestrian only streets in Beijing and is extremely popular on the weekends – we had to battle our way through the crowds! On a beautiful day like we had, this area is so picturesque. I love the history of this area (despite the more modern facade and the Star Bucks that sits at the entrance!) and it was fun to shoot here.
This sparkly sequined blazer was something I picked up at Stradivarius, and I wore it with sheer-back top from Zara. I love the long length at the back – this will be fun to wear more once the weather is warmer. I’m off to Shanghai tomorrow for work, exciting! I always have fun in Shanghai, it’s got such a buzz about it. The shopping and foodie scene is amazing, and this time I’ll also have a chance to catch up with some friends I haven’t seen in a while – a great extra bonus!
How’s your weekend going? Mine got off to a great start – pigging out on sushi last night at Hatsune… mmm. Haha. Off to watch the Nike Snow Jam finals tonight (which is being organized + hosted by Ollie and crew at Mellowparks). The winner gets a trip to Austria – now I’m wishing I’d practised snowboarding more haha.
Anyway, here’s today’s look for you – purple blazer and new silver necklace from H&M Hope you like it!
