Recently, I have been subconsciously inspired by British style: simple, yet has an indescribable charm. Perhaps I am lacking the eye candy of a beautiful British man who lives in 221B who’s got me poppin’ my collar. To those who are currently suffering from such deprivation, I am with you. Perhaps a third time of watching all the seasons isn’t such a bad idea… if only my GPA didn’t need a little more attention.
I have absolutely no idea what my bag says for it’s in Indonesian, but my best guess would be that it’s rice related because it’s recycled from the material used in rice bags.

I needed a little day off from everything and the beautiful, chilly weather has got me in the mood for a little exploration around one of my favourite neighbourhoods: Kensington. It is full of art, diversity and innovation: an energy I find refreshing and inspiring. A little retail therapy at a local store, Silla, and a visit to possibly my favourite café, Vendome, was my way of getting away from it all. Escapism would be incomplete without immersing myself in self-reflection and poetry. There is nothing more calming than finding time to ‘ajoute life’ into paper. A plus tard et avec l’amour!
My fan art
Lucy Rose is an English, indie folk singer-songwriter who released her first album in September 2012. I came across her music when searching for new artists through YouTube. I was captivated (with a hint of jealousy) by her crystal clear voice and mostly acoustic songs.
British artists differ immensely from American artists. I find that they have more intimate lyrics and attempt to showcase their voices, rather than be overshadowed by the instrumental background. As much as I can appreciate the technicality in Adele’s big voice, I was never a fan of that sort of style. I find better appreciation in soft, unique voices such as that of Lucy Rose. Her enunciation and style in singing is definitely inspiring and something I strive to achieve. If she were a male artist, she would be comparable to Dallas Green!
It’s a pity that I’ve not seen her live yet, although I’m positive that I would be on the look out for her next tour schedule.
Favourite songs and lines:
1) Shiver: And I loved the way you looked at me
And I miss the way you made me feel
When we were alone
When we were alone
2) Be Alright: It’s taken me a while to tell you
Exactly how I feel inside
The words, they seem so simple right now
But they took a while to find
3) Night Bus: She takes the night bus home
She’s not faced by the darkness in her soul
4) Gamble: And you said to me
Can’t we work it out?
Won’t you talk to me?
What’s this all about?
5) First: You’ve got that way of making me feel
Oh so scared and safe at once
I didn’t know that this was real
Come back for next week’s recommendation! Sorry I missed last week’s. I was very busy.
A plus tard et avec l’amour!
