So a couple of months ago I won a student competition by Student Tenant which meant I got a pair of tickets (+ accommodation) to New York for 4 nights!!! So this post is mostly just a huge thank you to Student Tenant! You should definitely check them out if you’re still looking for accommodation for the new academic year!
Just thought that since I haven’t posted in quite a while I’d share some pics from my trip, and then gradually go through all my other holidays this summer (Hawaii, San Francisco, Penang).

This was my second time in New York so I roughly knew what I wanted to do (mostly shop HAHA). We arrived at 8pm on a Thursday so we spent our first day getting over jet lag and shopping. We also wanted to make sure we tried a bunch of food places in NYC that were supposed to be good so we had Otto’s Tacos!
On day 2, we spent the morning around our hotel (Row NYC!!), which was basically Times Square.
In the afternoon, I went to watch Anastasia the musical (PLEASE WATCH). I brought my flatmate with me and she’d never been to New York before so after the musical we went to check out Radio City Hall and Rockefeller center.
On Day 3 we had brunch at Sarabeth’s, walked through Central Park and visited all the museums.

Didn’t really take a lot of pictures most days because I was constantly distracted hahaha.
On the last day we went to Washington Square Park and Bryant Park, and also took the Staten Island Ferry and saw the Statue of Liberty.

Okay so that’s it!! Hope you guys are excited for the new school year starting soon & lets hope I start posting again HAHA.
Hope you’ve been having a great February! I recently turned 20 and got to go to Sketch (it was amaaaaazing) so thought I’d share some pics!

So that’s all from me for now, actually flying home tonight as my mom’s Valentine’s Day present so I have to go pack!
What are your Valentine’s Day plans?
I promised to post again soon so here are my Japan trip pictures 🙂
My parents actually went to Tokyo for a business trip but we decided to make it a little holiday! Technically I’ve been to Japan at least 5 times and to Tokyo more than once, but it was still really fun!
On the first day, we went to the fish market and had really really fresh sushi & seafood (I’m getting hungry thinking about it) and then we walked around the Shibuya/Harajuku area. In the last picture we discovered this little street called Cat Street, it was really peaceful and quiet and such a huge contrast to the rest of the places we had been.
Tokyo was way hotter than expected and I had packed for vaguely cooler weather and regretted it the next few days.
Top & Shorts: Monki | Shoes: Korea (they have a secret heel!)
If anyone is still interested in Pokemon GO (lol), Tokyo had an amazing number of pokestops (I also caught Farfetch’d!!!) This was taken from my hotel, every evening we would just sit in bed and catch pokemon
We went to Shinjuku the next day to do more shopping.
Top, Bag & Shoes: Korea | Jeans: Tokyo
(Tokyo has cute snapchat filters!)
I’m a huge Pokemon fan and have been to the Pokemon Centers in both Osaka and Tokyo, but we didn’t really have the time for it so I went to the Pokemon store in Tokyo station! (I really wanted to get these!!)

Anyways, I had a pretty short trip in Japan but it was really fun! Next up will be pictures from the private island I went to for a wedding (I was a bridesmaid!)
Have a great week!
So as you probably noticed, I took a pretty long break from my blog. But now I’m back and am going to get you up to date on my life right now! Over the summer I went to Korea, Japan and a private island in Indonesia, I’ll be sharing pictures from all these places with you!
I’d been to Korea before so I knew all the places to go to (for shopping hehe) and I bought loads! If you’re planning on going, I suggest hongdae for young/teenage-y stuff, myeong dong for a good mixture of beauty & shops, and dongdaemun for wholesale markets etc (if i’m not wrong, cos we didn’t go to dongdaemun this time). Gangnam underground station is pretty good too, but I went on a rainy day and it was really crowded and I had random people shaking their wet umbrellas onto me…
We stayed at a hotel across the road from myeong dong, so we spent a lot of our time there. It’s where I got some of the clothes you’ll see in my other pics!
Dress: Topshop | Backpack: Singapore (random stall) | Shoes: Puma
Although we spent most of our time shopping, we did do a little bit of sightseeing and went to Gyeongbukgung Palace!
Entire outfit: Korea
We also went to Bukchon Hanok Village, where we got to wear hanboks (traditional korean outfits) and take pictures.
On one of our last days, we also went to Lotte World, which is an amusement park. I mostly went on kiddy rides but it was really fun!
Top & Culottes: Korea | Bag: Tory Burch | Shoes: Puma
Anyways, how was your summer? Promise I’ll post my Japan pictures soon so keep your eyes peeled! (Also I’m going to the Daughter concert at O2 brixton today so I’ll try and post pictures from that too!)
Have a great rest of the week! 🙂
