Goldmine Valentine

I struck gold when I found this skirt. Literally! 
It was hiding in a sale pile of sweaters at Zara in Ion Orchard.  Almost broke into tears when I had to go meet a friend and part with this work of art.  So, I hid it. Yes, I am one of those people.  But, don't lie, you'd hide this skirt too if you found it on sale in just your size!  An hour later I ran to my hiding spot and brought it by the counter.  
I walked out of that store with my golden ticket.

Hat, Body Chain, Blouse - Topshop // Skirt - Zara // Purse - Chanel

How funny! I look like I have no eyebrows :3 
Who am I kidding? My eyebrows are invisible. Ah, the curses of being blonde!


Anyway, these were the last photos taken on the last day of my stay in the Maldives.  It's back to work work work.  
But in a couple weeks I'm off to London for a week or so!  It's my first time, too! Well, technically I went when I was a baby, but I was too little too remember.  So, it'll be my second time but the first time that I'll remember. I've got some serious shopping to do, any suggestions from Londoners out there on what to bring? Coming from a girl whose lived in Singapore her whole life, SOS! 
Lorday *throws hands in the air *
I will definitely need to download some good zombie movies for the ride over there. I mean, you always need to be prepared for a zombie apocalypse. Even when you're overseas. Priorities, guys, priorities.


love,
Annika
