Why You So Obsessed?

Coat and scarf: H&M

Bag from Plenty

This season I am totally obsessed with the camel colour. I don't know what it is about it but it's just very chic, and classic plus it goes with almost everything. So when I saw this coat at H&M, I just knew i had to buy it!

Tonight I checked out a Japanese izakaya, called Suika. I've been wanting to try this place for the longest time because I'm following them on twitter and the dishes they tweet about sounds amazing. And I also heard great things about them from my fellow blogger friend foodmatik. Check out her blog here. Everything I had was awesome, I especially enjoyed the ma-po rice cake and the octopus carpaccio.

Shout out to my sister foodmatik whom I mentioned above, for my blog name. Check her out, she has impeccable taste in food!

Happy reading!

Guilty Pleasure

Everyone has their own guilty pleasures, for me I'm totally obsessed with none other than the Kardashian Klan. But in this case its the Kardashian's half sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner. At this years Hollywood Style Awards, the fabulous "dolls" won award for most stylish sisters! Step aside Kourtney, Kim and Khloe, its the new generations time to shine! Congrats to them! What are your thoughts on these Jenner sisters, love them or hate them?

I think this was a chicken sandwich? With a side of fries
Now on to the chow part, last week I visited a little place on Main street called The Well with one of my friends after school. The hungry us ordered 3 entree's... yes you read it right 2 people to 3 entree's. We just couldn't decide on what to have. The food was just mediocre, wasn't amazing or anything. Don't think I'll go back though. Overall I will rate this restaurant a 5/10 a passing mark because it was decent.

Side note, what do you all think about the new look of the blog? Let me know, and don't forget to subscribe!

MTV Movie Awards Fab

Ever since I've learned about Yves Saint Laurent's "Le Smoking" tuxedo suit, I have fell in love with the menswear inspired look for women.

This year at the MTV Movie Awards, Hollywood's newest fourteen year old starlet Hailee Steinfeld stepped out onto the red carpet wearing a black sequin shawl lapel Louis Vuitton tuxedo suit. How stunning does she look?! I love young risk takers who steps out of the box and does something different and she did it amazingly. And to top it off, she added some colour with a Edie Parker turquoise and black clutch. Do we hear next teen fashion icon?  I'd die, and at ONLY fourteen years old? I wish I was that fabulous back then!

Best FASHION Friends

Happy bday my bff aka Best FASHION friend!
 This is a very delayed post, I haven't been busy or anything just lazy to update, went out for dinner at Guu Garden for my friend Aprils bday, then danced the night away at Fortune! Had a blast that night, we all probably didn't go out for like months! My friend Ira picked out this outfit for me, she's another one of my best fashion friends who I met at fashion school!

Set me Free

(Fedora & Leather bomber: H&M, Shirt: Zara, Scarf: Vintage, Jeans: Levis)

I threw this outfit together really quickly before I left, becuase the outfit I had on early I was sweating so bad in it because it got really warm and sunny today surprisingly! I love this vintage Chanel scarf, I found it in my moms closet and she never wears it so I took it. This look to me, actually reminds me of 
Ryan Gosling, with the scarf and leather bomber but minus the hat of course.

Tonight I had dinner at Horizons with one of my ex coworker. We actually decided on coming to this restaurant because she got a coupon from her friend. It was a promo they were having at the restaurant, $19 lobster steak dinner that regular priced at $32. Well all I gotta say is you pay for what you get. The steak and lobster was very bland. Mashed potatoes were not smooth and creamy like how I like it.  And overall the food was not even hot! Plus I looked in the menu at other foods, everything was very overpriced.

Overall rating: 6/10

...until next time

First Post

Hi everyone! Welcome to my fashion/food blog! I have always wanted to make a fashion blog but never got around to it. But recently I've been dining out a lot with my friends which gave me the idea of making a fashion blog that also feature food so it would be a little different. So follow me on my journey as I DREAM BIG on becoming a fashion stylist and on my way chowing down on some good eats!

Here is a little sneak peak of what to expect on my blog... above is a behind the scenes photo I took on my blackberry. I did this shoot back in August last year with a photography student friend of mine, it was also my first time styling a boy.
