That’s it, I’m relabelling these allergy pills to ‘Bank Holiday pill‘ or ‘the chill pill‘. Seeing how I was either K.O in any lodgeable corner or delirious when ‘awake’, they may come to use when I truly do need to BE INCONVENIENTLY SLEEPY THE ENTIRE DAY. I don’t think I realised just how heavy my head was till today, that and the number of corners one can sleep in in the flat (windowsill…). Worst thing is that the allergy pills did no deallergizing, or anti-histamining, or whatever the verb may be. Curse you, cheap pills! Anyway, thought I’d do something a little different with the outfit post/Uniqlooks. I’d put it in a jQuery slide but now I’m just entering my umpteenth sleep cycle of the day and I must oblige. Goodbyez.

Not long after I’d arrived in London at the beginning of May I had to spill the Poland luggage onto my eerily foreign bedroom floor (almost alien after three months of absence) and compress the contents into an Austria.zip carry-on to set off for Wörthersee, Austria the next day. Fun fact: My life in Europe had actually started in Vienna, Austria before we moved to Poland. Fun fact #2: Vigorous clapping upon touchdown still exists on Ryanair flights. A waft of nostalgia hit the minute I stepped out of the plane, and all throughout the drive to the hotel I was delighting at the details outside the window that I’d been so familiar as a child: the wood chips on flowerbeds, the shape of the fences and roofs… 20 minutes later we (Kit & Natacha of Mango PR) arrived at Lake’s Hotel (My Lake Hotel & Spa) and my, what a spectacle. Snowcapped Alps enveloped the glassy lake, the trees on the bank dyed the water emerald… the view was simply revitalizing! Lake’s Fashion Days had just started a day earlier and the following few days were to be a mixture of fashion shows and lakeside entertainment – including a dip in the icy lake for those daredevils, which automatically excluded me, the lion of Oz. Stay tuned for part 2!

Thank you Natacha of Mango PR for taking care of us & Kit for the outfit photos x

All garments Pennyblack on loan, thank you Oliwia for helping with the shooting!

Yeah, I’m just going to give up with the fantasy of editing 200 photos and putting up a semi-coherent post within 30 minutes with the sigoth breathing down my neck. We’re meant to watch a movie, and he confiscated all my phones and watches to set up an alarm bomb. There’s nothing worse than hearing 6 alarms going off full volume at 11 o’clock in the evening; that and the dude on ‘are we there yet’ loop mode. ARG ok goodbye.

My Pennyblack slot is now active, so please check it out and stuff, you’re amazing, and that’s all I can say now……Fightclub is going in the DVD drive and will autoload on top of this window….

Significant Other: (Looking over my shoulder) You look so Asian.

Me: I am Asian.

Significant Other: No, I mean how you can hardly see your eyeballs in all these pics. And you look like the guy from Mulan in that orange pic…

Me: Screw you.

You wouldn’t believe how windy it was today! It may look as though I have a few static balls rolling around in my pocket but no, I believe if I had any kind of balls I wouldn’t have troubles telling the waiter he brought the wrong order. Or wouldn’t have to pretend I’m blind when passing a neighbour in the corridor to avoid saying hello. I’M JUST SHY OKAY. This is a rather belated first instalment of this month’s Uniqlooks, and yes, their clothes alone do make me happy and grinny and all, but the truth was that as the wind was thrashing and whipping my hair around I kept thinking how funny it’d look if I tried eating a sticky toffee icecream during this all and I couldn’t stop guffawing like a moron.

Thank you Kit for the outfit shots!

Wobbled in, delirious with hunger – rolled out, saturated with endorphins and possibly pregnant. WITH FOOD, what are you thinking. That’s probably the simplest I can get to summarizing the experience at Café Luc, a dapper brasserie cached at the tip of bustling Marlebone High Street. Kit and I were so generously invited for dinner, and since we’re both notorious for neglecting eachother with a BRB hanging on Skype to go fish for pot noodles in the kitchen, there was no saying no. I do blame the severe hunger that had me order Steak tartare for starter and then the Veal Paillard – I think I’d have enquired for chicken drumsticks dipped in chocolate for dessert if not for the waiter’s timely confiscation of the menu; he’d sensed the meat binge. Bonus tip for that, because the Parfait he brought later was parfait. I figure I’d make a good T-Rex if not for my sweet tooth, which places me in the Pokémon category of species. Café Luc is the sort of place you lose track of time in, it was bright out when we met and pitch dark when we took off. Prices compensate for the hearty atmosphere and satisfying food, yet affordable enough for a quality date with a friend or sigoth. (3-course set menu for £15.90 during non-peak hours) A fun secret? Try spotting one of the owners of the restaurant: Laurant – or as I saw, a Hugh Grant clone. (proof captured by Alexxsia on her visit)

Thank you Alix of ME:MO Interactive for organizing the dinner; thank you Kit for outfit shots!
