we will not let time erase us.






american apparel lace tee and shorts, seychelles sandals, kaur necklace, ysl ring.

Sorry for the sudden disappearance from the blogging world, I just moved to Hong Kong and just had a slightly overwhelming amount of stuff to do, other than adjusting to the 15 hour time difference: unpacking (how about four 70 pound suitcases?), organizing and decorating for my room, shopping for everything I need/forgot to bring, law orientations, figuring out my damn schedule, attempting to brush up my conversational Cantonese, more unpacking, trying to cram my heels into one cabinet, et cetera. Not to mention the general "settling into moving for the first time in my life, which happens to be to the other side of the world, and I won't be going home for a year" thing. So I just want to apologize ahead of time if my posting gets a bit erratic from here on out. College starts in two days and who knows...but I'm going to try my best to keep this blog going.
I took these photos two days before I left California, it's sad looking back at these. Summer seemed so much longer on the other side. Not to mention, my boyfriend took theses photos (he's one of the primary photographers for this blog) and needless to say, he's not in Hong Kong. My sister was the other photographer and she's clearly not with me as well, so I guess for now I'll have to stick with a tripod (which I don't own but need to get soon) and a blank white wall in my new bedroom.

But on the plus side, I had a little free time today, so...


I decided to enter Chictopia's Jeffrey Campbell My Way contest! Click here for more, and give me a chic vote if you like it!

I love the shorts, top, ring... umm everything?! Lol you're super cute as ever. I can't believe you moved to Hong Kong! That must be so amazing, but I'm sure you miss everyone in CA :( It's exciting anyway, I hope school isn't totally stressful! :)

Wow, Emily. Four 70 pound suitcases!? You must have paid a fortune! Anyway, I'm glad you arrived ok and sympathize with the whole year away thing. I went from Canada (and Western Canada) to Scotland for my year away and it was pretty hard at first. But I'm sure you'll have an awesome time after a month or so!

I love your American Apparel blouse by the way!
