#EMOJI

I started off this week with a fresh new cut and delightful new Antipodium top. For the past year I'd been patiently trying to grow out my locks but the end of my hair had gotten so dry and damaged from the bleaching form the dip-dye, that I really needed to cut it off! Suprisingly I'm not feeling any pangs of regret (yet!) as my hair is now so much easier to manage and super healthier than before! Here I'm wearing my new favourite top, the XOXO shirt from Antipodium's EMOJI inspired 2013 resort collection. Since I've been an iphone user, I've been a pretty fanatical emoji user. I love how a delightful array of little emoticons can express a thousand words and even better express emotions/things beyond words (genius :D) - and so that was a huge part of the reason I HAD to have this charming shirt. Tasfia is wearing another of my closet newbies, this beautiful new Sara Phillips dress...
I am wearing: shirt ANTIPODIUM, shorts 1989 THE LABEL, shoes COMME PREMIUM, watch SWATCH
Tasfia is wearing: dress SARA PHILLIPS, bag DEADLY PONIES, watch MICHAEL KORS, rings MANIAMANIA and ESTELLE DEVE, bracelet ERIN WASSON X LOWLUV, shoes TOPSHOP

ISOMERISM


 With both summer and my summer vacation ending soon, I've been trying to jam pack so much into my days that I've been neglecting the blog just a little.  Here Tas and I are wearing two of our favourite kinds of summer staples - the light and airy summer dress and the fail safe cutt-off shorts and tee/polo combo.
Tasfia is wearing: top ANTIPODIUM, shorts AJE, bag ALEXANDER WANG, rings CHASE DAKOTA and ESTELLE DEVE, sunglasses KSUBI

INSTAGRAM TRAVEL DIARY

I've never been a huge Facebook user. Instagram is my preferred method of stalking and um ahem sharing the happenings of my life with the world (You can check me out by searching @fablihareza). Both Spain and Paris were filled with picture perfect, postcard worthy scenes. These are a couple of my faves that my iPhone and camera managed to capture...
Photobucket
Tasfia and I at Montserrat: Visiting Monteserrat was one of the highlights of Spain. The view from its top was breath-taking and the jagged rocks that form it are bizarrely beautiful - they look like an abstraction of human figures.

LEFT: A beautiful candy-coloured sunset in Barcelona. I swear the sunsets use a  different colour palette in this side of the world!  RIGHT: Getting cartooned at La Rambla; a pedestrian street in Barcelona with street artists, markets and delish local restaurants

At Park Guell, a beautiful Park designed by (unquestionably) the most revered Spanish architect, Gaudi. Gaudi's work is biomimetic and so you can see starkly beautiful reflections of the natural world in his work + the view of Barcelona from the park's top is unreal!

Another massive highlight of our trip to Spain was our visit to the Salvador Dali museum. I've already raved about it in an earlier post but I've got to mention that it is aweinspiring-ly cool.

 Even the second time round, Paris was as beautiful as ever. We were lucky to be staying at a hotel just a few steps away from the Eiffel tower and so we were able to truly admire this beauty (to the left)

It has only been a few years since I'd last visited Paris before this time round, but after stepping off the plane, the place I was most eager on visiting was the Palace of Versailles - Its beauty is uncanny! RIGHT (bottom): the details on our new Maison Martin Margiela x H & M tattoo top

Sights by the Seine in Paree

At Notre Dame

Montmartre!

THE TREATS: 
Whenever I'm on holiday I want to experience a country to its fullest, and that includes the food! I seem to lose my inhibitions and all notions of healthy eating when I'm on vacation!

INERTIA


The weather here has been so super dodgy (torrential rain, storms, flooding) that it feels like eons since we had a decent fully sunny day like yesterday! Tasfia and I wanted to make the most of it and so headed out for one of our typical twinster hang days. In this case it involved brunching, shopping around and drinking delish tea and sorbet, shopping around again and then drinking some more tea!  I wore two of my new fave prints, which surprisingly marry pretty well together. Tas wore an outfit that was just a little more temperature-appropriate - I think I need to get a few more crop tops before summer ends!
I'M WEARING: skirt FRONT ROW, shirt FINDERS KEEPERS, sunglasses CHRONICLES OF NEVER, boots TOPSHOP, bag CASSANDRA LA
TASFIA IS WEARING: top JOSH GOOT, skirt KAHLO, bag DEADLY PONIES, choker MANIAMANIA, sunglasses SPORTSGIRL, rings ESTELLE DEVE, MANIAMANIA and YSL
