Music

Donald Glover, more commonly referred to as Childish Gambino, has been one of my favourite musicians for a long time. I find his lyrics and artistic approach incredibly captivating, which is why I was beyond excited to hear that he was going to be dropping an album in 2016. The album is called "Awaken, my love!" and just dropped today (December 2nd). I've listened through it twice already and I am absolutely in love. This album is a completely new approach for Gambino, as his previous albums have been more towards rap and hip hop, whereas this album is influenced by almost every single genre and type of music. My favourite thing about this album is that it really showcases his talent, not only as a rapper but as a singer as well. His amazing vocals steal the show in many of the songs, and it is always nice seeing an artist or musician branching out and trying new things.

My favourite songs are "Redbone", "Boogieman", and "Stand Tall". Check out the entire album by clicking HERE , and let me know in the comments what you think about the album!

The weather has been constantly changing here in Hong Kong, which has been great for me since I can finally wear all my hoodies outside without sweating. This weekend I went out for a walk and manage to snap some simple outfit pictures. This outfit really isn't anything special, but it is incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. An all black outfit can never go wrong, and to add a little fun to it I like wearing shoes that stand out and bring the whole look together. These sneakers from Comme Des Garçon are fun and simple, yet make a boring outfit way more exciting.

What is your go to weekend wear? Let me know in the comments below!

My Closet

Normally I don't wear a lot of prints or colour, but there are certain pieces that really catch my eye. This t-shirt was made in a campaign by Marc Jacobs to raise awareness for skin cancer. Several celebrities posed naked for the campaign, and the initiative ended up bringing in more than $500,000 for the NYU School of Medicine Interdisciplinary Melanoma Cooperative a Group. Despite this initiative being relatively old, the message and awareness is still of great importance. The slogan "Protect the skin you're in" is something that stands out, and catch people's eye on the street. You'll definitely see me rocking this t-shirt as much as I can.

The evolution of street style throughout the last couple of years is remarkable. The tough, casual wear has always had a presence on the streets through popular skate brands such as Supreme, but has recently made its way to the runway and the fashion world. Brands like Obey, Stussy and Supreme have been around for a long time, but are still turning heads on the street as they have become staple brands in the closet of anyone embodying the style.

Lately the street wear scene has developed immensely, and has made way for new brands to enter the scene. Off-White, Hood by Air, Palace Skateboards, Anti Social Club, Thrasher, only to name a few, have been spotted on celebrities and fashionistas across the world, and it is safe to say that the brands have also gained a larger following through the recognition. One of my favourite up and coming brands is Gosha Rubchinskiy from Russia, who incorporates strong graphics in his pieces. His clothes have been featured in many style reports throughout this year, and has become a very sought after brand.

What I am loving about this style is how diverse and fun it is. I find it incredibly cool that there are so many brands that are dominating the scene, and that most of them are somewhat affordable and accessible if you manage to get your hands on them in time. The drastic growth has undeniably created a hype among fans, which is something that the brands are using to their favour. The limited drops of collections from brands like Anti Social Club makes the items seem a lot more exclusive, despite the affordable price-tag, and I am loving it.

Sneakers have become a huge staple piece in my wardrobe for the past year. They're comfortable and stylish at the same time, and work with almost every outfit. Unfortunately I've started to get a bit tired of the classic Stan Smiths, superstars, Nike Roshe runs etc. so I looked into some options that would be a bit more unique and fun (and comes with a heavier price tag as well...)

I am absolutely in love with the Adidas x Rick Owens collection (bottom right), but when I went to look at them in the store they turned out to be quite heavy, and they also only come in size 40+. I will definitely be investing in a pair of Common Projects sneakers in the near future, since they're simple and easy to wear with almost every outfit. Let me know your favourites in the comments down below!

Around the World, Life in Hong Kong

Working out has never been something I enjoy doing by myself. I love playing sports and that kind of stuff, but making my way to the gym has always been a bit more difficult. Since moving to Hong Kong, I've discovered that hiking is an amazing alternative to a daily workout, but with an amazing view and much more variety than a long run on the treadmill. There's no better way to see Hong Kong's vast nature than to go on a hike, and the best part is that there are so many different trails with varying intensity. My personal favourite is Wilson Trail (pictured above), because it has the most amazing view over the many skyscrapers and the harbour. If you're ever visiting the city, make sure to put some time aside for a walk in the nature. You won't regret it!

Whether it's on the runway or the streets, the velvet craze has taken the fashion world by storm. It is probably safe to say that this is the biggest fall trend of 2016, as it seems as if everywhere I turn, glossy velvet garments are more present than ever. High fashion houses like Prada have used the material in their most recent ready to wear collection, and the soft fabric is also present in retail stores all over the world. The rapidly growing trend is one that I'm watching eagerly, and I'm loving the classy edge it can add to a simple outfit. Unfortunately I haven't adopted the trend myself, but I'm sure that I'll cave sooner rather than later. I've been more into experimenting with my usually plain, black style, so maybe you'll see me rocking an all velvet get up soon.

I absolutely love the versatility of velvet garments, and definitely think this is one of my favourite trends this fall. Let me know what you think in the comments! Is velvet here to stay?

I've been listening to Mura Masa for a while now, and his songs are just incredible. The combination of instrumentals and sounds is captivating, and I could listen to it on repeat forever. Mura Masa has been blowing up recently, which is why I thought it was fitting to post his new video for the song "Love$ick" which features A$AP Rocky. The video was released 3 days ago and has already racked up an impressive number of views because of its beautiful aesthetic and blend of colours. I'm a big fan of the video, and if you're looking for some chill tunes to add to your playlist, check out more Mura Masa HERE!

Around the World

I'm trying to clean up my computer, and while I was deleting old photos I came across some photos from my trip to Istanbul a couple years ago. Turkey is truly a place rich in culture, colour and architecture, and I absolutely loved my time there. From visiting the spice market to walking the streets of the city, there is so much to see and so much to do. I hope to visit Turkey again in the future, and hoping that the current situation in the country will improve.

I absolutely love days where I have no plans, and no errands to run. It's nice knowing that I can relax and do whatever I want, without stressing at all. Today I went down to the pool and listened to a few podcasts before coming back up for lunch. I'm spending the rest of the day watching "Stranger Things" on Netflix, and maybe getting a few naps in as well.
