Herald.


Just tell me that I am not giving you 70s Audrey Hepburn in these images, lol. Well I am back to my old tricks in this post ; recycling that is. If you notice, my hair is back to its natural state I.e sans braids and so my look was centered around being minimal and demure even though it doesn't quite look like it. I am wearing a transparent cover-up over a brocade dress (from miss selfridge) and my polka-spotted scarf and brooches are vintage finds while my pair of shoes is from Zara.

Favour.

 
Its been a while I know; trust me, there has been reason for my absence. I had a series of transitions occur in my life in the past 6-to-8 weeks and as such, I have not been able to blog. This very post has taken me '6 weeks' to achieve believe it or not; I had to settle into my new environment, find a blog-friendly location to shoot, hunt for a new photographer, find a pool, buy an underwater camera, find time in between studies and then finally pick a suitable day for both myself and my photographer to shoot. It really has been a hectic period for me, but the grace of God has enabled me take everything in my stride and so I ask that you bear with me. As you can tell (Or maybe you can't) I have changed locations; as a matter of fact continents. I currently reside in Texas and that alongside other developments have occurred in the past couple of months. I am still in the process and I will be updating you as time moves along.
Details : Today's outfit is put together based on sentiment; my mother visited a couple of weeks ago and when out she (and my aunt) spotted this vintage top hanging on a clothes rack and encouraged me to purchase it and so I bought and wore it because of them. Everything else from the tweed skirt to vintage brooches happen to be playing supporting roles. As for why I chose to shoot underwater well, honestly that decision was based on inquisition and I hope to make more blogs quite as unusual in the nearest future.

Travel | Moscow.



Over the past two weeks I had to visit Moscow twice, both times for business purposes however I did take out time to go and see the little nooks, crannies, major landmarks that make Moscow one of the fascinating cities in the world. In this post, I show some of the images I captured during my time in Moscow: The cathedral at Saint. Patriarshiy bridge // sunset on St. Patriarshiy // State historical museum at the red square // Cathedral of St. Basil's the Blessed on the red square // Lenin's Mausoleum on the Red square // Third floor of the GUM ( Grand/big universal store/mall) // Roof/ceiling of the GUM // Fountain opposite the red square // picture slices of the GUM (Frankly I couldn't capture the mall in its entirety, That building is insane) // Glass bed at the Patriarshiy bridge Cathedral // St. Patriarshiy bridge Sunset over the cathedral // St. Patriarshiy bridge // Walking the Crimean bridge // View of the crimean bridge from down below // This 'river' you are staring at is actually a fountain in the middle of the Gorky park of Culture and leisure // Having a 'venus moment' at the Fountain // A thick shrub of purple petals in the Flowers section of the park // Water- ride train inside the park // Bleachers' Yoga pose //  Self titled 'pearl tunnel' in the park // Views of the Metro station in the park.
Unfortunately I cannot post up every photo taken as it would make an endless post however these are the highlights and a few will be posted on my Instagram account as well.

On another note, I am in the process of finding a solid photographer to work with, so please excuse my absence on the blog until I find one.
