I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.





Company magazine photoshoot; London; Big thanks to Ellen again for taking photos

In case you’re wondering this is not a staged outfit photoshoot, I happen not to have energy or dedication of such sorts stored in me to cough out an idea like that. Actually, I’ve been privileged to be invited by Company magazine to be featured in the upcoming October issue about British fashion bloggers, with a shiny flight ticket so I can haul ass to London for a shoot & interview. It was a bit like that scene in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, where fat Augustus pulls out the piece of gold ticket from his chocolate bite, and does the WHUTZEHECK? face. Well mind you, my whutzeheck face was very ladylike, then I proceeded onto a very violent session of packing involving a bit of screaming.

  44. Seriously rad!

  45. I really like the new version 3.0! hehe It’s so clean and refined :) Do you still use a blog platform? i.e. wordpress, blogspot, etc?

    I’m so happy you shared some behind-the-scenes photos but I can’t wait til the final spread comes out!!

  46. Yup it’s still WordPress, just a bit of tinkering and it looks all mine muhahahaha

  47. well lucky you!
    you sure deserve this wonderful opportunity!

  48. LOVE these photos!! Especially the first one-where are those black shoes (center) from?

  49. OOh yes they’re from Office, they’re £30 right now to my horror.

  50. Well congrats on that one! That would be such a good time without a doubt. I’m loving the outfit with the plaid pants and like someone else said, you have fantastic hair. If only I could will and urge mine to grow.

  51. Wow, super sleek layout :)
    And congratulations Darling, you so deserve it, your blog is one of the most fun, stylish, and individual out there. PLUS, you are funny. Love. Alizé xx

  52. Oh, and I loove the wider pictures too. I value visuals most (as you can see from my large one & only picture per story on Blog de Tendances) and I think many bloggers have amazing imagery but do not make the most of the ‘screen space’. Especially with digital & mobile technologies: I mean a medium picture on a 13″ is already small, so on an Iphone screen?! Well done you! xx

  53. I so agree, we can do so much better with screen real estate with our blogs, and even crap pictures look good big :P I do love how your blog always has a big photo or collage to start off the article, it’s like BAM, it’s gonna be good

  54. I am so happy for you! I can only hope to be as half as successful with blogging one day.

    Lvoe Grace.

  55. Congrats Shini!! Looking forward to seeing you strutting your stuff in the magazine!!!!!!
