Club Monaco Spring 2011

Club Monaco is overpriced, but it doesn't stop me from loving their collections. The Spring lookbook has lots to love for a casual but polished daytime look - maxi-skirts, lace, white, a touch of sparkle, undone unfussy hair.

More looks on Fashionologie

Sunday at the V&A Museum

I went to the V&A Museum today with a friend to catch the Imperial Chinese Robes and Shadow Catchers exhibitions. Because both exhibitions had timed entries, we found ourselves in the Medieval & Renaissance section to kill half an hour. Despite the many times I've been to the V&A, this was my first time upstairs. I keep saying this, but I really need to visit this museum more often.

All photos taken with the iPhone Morelomo app.

The girl who levitated through Tokyo

All photos taken from yowayowa

One of my friends loves to take photos of herself jumping, so we started a mini-series of us jumping in various locations around Europe. However, our photos are nothing like this delightful series of 'levitational' shots of a pretty girl in Tokyo.

What I love about her photos is how serene she looks in her levitations. She really does make you believe she's walking on air.

Also, I can't help but compare her to one of my favourite animes The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.

See the resemblance? Maybe she can leap through time. :)

See her blog (also with lots of cute photos of her cat)

Quick trip to L.A.

Along Santa Monica boulevard

I had to go to L.A. for a last minute work trip last week, which was a pleasant surprise. Aside from the extremely long time it took to get out of LAX and having to contend with the culture of tipping, I had a really great time. The work part of the trip went well, and I managed to slip in a job interview which ended well. It was also so nice to enjoy the Californian sunshine and explore Santa Monica. I'm hoping I get more trips back there in the near future!

Pancakes and eggs for breakfast at the IHOP next to my hotel

Walking along Santa Monica Pier

I love Pinkberry! Especially the blood orange flavour and added extras of mochi

I had to buy $4 flip-flops from CVS Pharmacy after getting blisters from walking around in heels.

Having the signature umami burger and sweet potato fries at Umami Burger. No one does burgers like the Americans.
