During the Fall and Winter seasons I like to shop for accessories in thicker materials such as leather or suede. I lean towards choosing black or earth-toned pieces because they are more versatile for matching with the layers that I’ll be wearing during the cooler seasons. Here are some of the accessories on my list for the current and upcoming season:
- Haerfest Two Handle Tote ($250) – This dark camouflage tote bag is my idea of the perfect casual bag for Fall. It’s light, very roomy, and it can add some edginess to your look.
- Miansai M12 White Dial Watch ($495) – Clean and simple at it’s best. This is the only watch you’ll need for this season, really.
- Rag & Bone Suede Baseball Cap ($150) – I’ve been drawn to baseball caps lately because they’re a stylish way to hide a bad hair day. The suede material of this cap makes it more trendy and unique.
- A.P.C New Compact Zip Wallet ($265) – I use a zip wallet on weekends because it’s more durable and secure. This quality leather wallet can hold your bills, 3 cards, and your coins – all that you need on a night out.
- Native Union iPhone 6 Case ($40) – Just how cool is this wood iPhone 6 case?
There is an abundance of things to love about Prague, but one major turn off for me was the massive amount of tourists during the summer season. Prague was by far the busiest city that I had visited in Eastern Europe and this hit me hard since I stayed near Old Town. But, since I had an entire week to spend in Prague, this gave me time to discover some quiet hideout spots. The first spot I liked is Vitkov, where this post’s photos were taken. Vitkov is a hill in Eastern Prague and its peak serves as both a war memorial and a viewpoint. This spot was recommended to me by a local barista and it’s pretty much the only quiet tourist attraction in town. The hike up the hill takes a little while, but the view from above is astounding.
After many months of travelling and moving to Hong Kong this year, my blogging schedule has become a mess. I have so many photos and stories from my travels that I would like to share, but I haven’t been able to publish them in a chronological sequence due to events and projects that have popped up. Lately I’ve received some new items that I’m very excited to share without any further delay. Unfortunately this means that the timeline of my blog is going to fall out of sequence more. I’m thinking of designing a new layout for my blog that will display all these posts in a more understandable manner – I hope you all bear with me in the mean time!
What to do on a gloomy day? Well, I like to take photos for the blog. Sunlight can be used to create dramatic photos, but the absence of harsh sunlight makes photo shooting so much faster and easier.
Simplicity is beauty, and I find this to be especially true in a timepiece. Recently I got in touch with Daniel Wellington as they kindly gifted me with one of their watches. Daniel Wellington watches have always appealed to me because they are the epitome of minimalistic elegance. My favourite thing about these watches is that all of their straps are interchangeable, so you can change the look of the watch over time. Daniel Wellington’s leather straps offer a classic feel whereas their NATO straps are a fun retro throwback. For starters, I got the DW watch in silver hardware with the ‘Canterbury’ strap. I appreciate this watch strap’s youthful and preppy appeal.

Prague was the city in Eastern Europe that I was most excited to visit after I heard much rave about its exceptional beauty, vibrant culture, and amazing nightlife. Because Prague is so big and has so many attractions, my travel partner Ada and I decided to spend a whole week here. Czech Republic is the one country in Europe that was undamaged from the World Wars, so Prague’s historic streets and buildings are still in surprisingly good condition. Walking around in Prague was like walking in a fairy tale. Everything from its cobbled lanes to its stunning cathedrals merged together to create a magical medieval landscape.
