Just a quick update from London - bare with me while I try to find an apartment, set up my university courses and find an outfit photographer! Patience is a virtue my friends...

Usual suspects

All black and these mules - what else did you expect?
Also: I can never keep my eyes open, ever.

Because everyone needs a pair of faux leather culottes in their life...

Mules are the world

An ode to my new favourite pair of shoes: these mules from NELLY and that I haven't stopped wearing since I got them. In the weekends, I mean: I'm not wearing heels to work (running around the office's slippery floor, driving a car and walking home every day wearing heels? I'm not THAT crazy...) This outfit represents the crazy fickle weather we've been having: one moment I'm sweating my ass off, only to put on a coat a minute later. Yes I've cracked and taken out my thrifted coat again - it's more like a long coat-y cardigan so it doesn't count as real winter gear, ok??

I'm wearing: vintage Levi's mom jeans thrifted | vintage coat & shirt | NELLY mules | MANGO bag

Trinidad & Cienfuegos

Well it's pretty late in the evening again (but really, are there actually people who make it into bed before midnight with all this INTERNETZ keeping us busy - I still have about 20 tabs open, all stuff I have to read or watch, I can't possibly be the only one...) (Also, should dedicate a post to this instead of trying to make up an introduction to a travel post) Anyway, today's post is about two of my favourite cities in Cuba: Cienfuegos & Trinidad. Much less hassle and crowd compared to Havana, and so much authenticity. Cienfuegos is known for its blue painted houses - every instagrammer's dream - and Trinidad for its coloured everything, salsa nights and loads of daiquiri's - in my case, anyway. One does not simply take on salsa with the locals without a bit of rum-infused encouragement...

After almost a year of thinking about it, I got my ear pierced! My mind was actually set on a tiny gold ring, but I got told a ring takes way longer to heal and you can change after six weeks if you want to. Anyway, I'm very happy with the one I got - what do you think?

PS: already contemplating getting a third one in my lobe - it's true what they say, it's a dangerously addictive game!
PPS: Pat on my back because I DID NOT FAINT people. This comes from someone who faints at the mere sight of a hospital. So how about that tattoo now, eh?
