Ooooh I do love a good ogle through the imagery wonderland that is Ffffound!
Those of you regulars would know that I am renowned for the odd post filled with my favored images & quotes that I had giddily stumbled upon during my Ffffound frenzy.
Well I noticed that I haven't done one in quite some time now so here is a slightly more extensive post than usual to make up for my Ffffound neglect!!! ;)

Bisous xoxo

a photo of the last place you went on holiday

**Notes From Barcelona**
This is a picture of me and my 2 besties in front of the Arc De Triomphe in Barcelona, where we were on one of our holidays this summer as well as some time spent in Frankfurt & Biarritz..... it has to be done ;) We rented a cool little apartment in the centre of the city, in the trendy area of El Born which has so many great little cafes, bars & boutiques. Even in one week, it still wasn't enough time to venture into them all. As I visit Barcelona so often I like to spend less time sampling the conventional & the expected and try to explore the hidden, the unique and the authentic, in a way that only a local could.

Here are a few of my favourite finds during my trip:

1. Passeig del Born: The whole El Born area actually & The Gothic Quarter
2. CDLC Beach Bar: For pure luxury after a day on the beach
3. Lunch at Bar Salvador: Neon lit & noisy
4. La Vinya Del Senyor: If the window-facing table upstairs is free, this is as cute as Barcelona gets.
5. La Terrazza: The perfect open-air summer clubbing venue

Well I hope you enjoyed the 'Day In The Life...' posts for the past 7 days & got a little bit more of an insight into the behind the scenes of RoCkInFaShIoN.
Bisous Bisous

The Silk Blouse

á la Alexa Chung

The silk or satin blouse is smart, chic, fun and stylish.. all rolled into one!
It is on Trend but Timeless xoxo

a photo of yourself a year ago

A year ago I was in London for the 25th anniversary of London Fashion Week.
Staying with my friend in Shoreditch we literally attended shows all day & partied all night.
Was definitely one of my highlights from last year xoxo

Natasha Poly turns Brunette for the new November 2010 French Vogue issue!

Mario Sorrenti photographed Ms. Poly for this very different, fresh, unorthodox cover of Vogue Paris.
Carine Roitfeld selected Natasha to interpret her vision of "Love & Peace".
Peace out, Carine!

a photo of you & your friends

We have all grown up together since our early teens!!!
We went to the same school,  wore the same trends (you know what I'm talking about girls), swapped endless amounts of clothes, had crushes on the same boys, gone to the same parties etcera etcera. We have laughed, cried, gossiped, danced, partied & travelled together for as long as I can remember. 
As there are so many of us now scattered all over the world, it is not an easy task to get us all together for a comprehensive group photo op. But last year we miraculously managed to get all twelve of us together in the same room for the first time in 5 years & probably won't again for another 5 years. So here is the group photo that was taken & until then....... bisou bisou girls xoxo 

Even though we've changed and we're all finding our own place in the world, we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we'll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we're not all still friends.

 a photo that makes you happy

Australia is by far one of the most amazing places I have ever had the pleasure of visiting.
I absolutely fell head over heels in love with the country, its extreme environments & of course who can falter their beach lifestyle!! I traveled the length & breadth of the country with my sister & friend in our trusty lil campervan, meeting so many great personalities along the way as well as seeing some of the most amazing beaches, national parks, sunrises, sunsets & national treasures that I will never forget.
The ocean, sunsets & beaches are some of my biggest fascinations in life & I took endless photos of all three throughout my travels. Whenever I look back in nostalgia at my traveling photographs they always remind me of the amazing time I spent there, therefore it proved very difficult to choose just one.... & so there were three. 
The first one was taken at Sunshine beach in Noosa (eastern Australia), the second @ Lucky Bay in Cape Le Grande National Park (southern Australia) & the third photo was taken in Monkey Mia (western australia)

A photo that makes you laugh

With both my brothers now living in Barcelona, you'll find me there at least 2-3 times a year & counting at this stage.
Whenever I'm there it is constant laughter from beginning to end with the mixture of holiday giddiness, my brothers never ending tomfoolery & well.... more of the both put together really  :)
I took this photo of my brother & his fabulous fiancé Sandra when we were literally just in the door from the airport & whenever I look at this photo it reminds me of yet another hilarious time in Barca... Fun Times!!!

My Facebook Profile

Here is me with my best friend - Martina - whom unfortunately for me lives in Frankfurt, Germany so I  don't get to see her lovely, smiley self as much as I'd like. This pic was taken when I went to visit her this summer, in what is slowly becoming my favourite haunt in Frankfurt called: Schoneberger. A really funky, chilled out tavern & bar: My kinda place...
You definitely have to hit Schoneberger if you are ever in the vicinity & the bar men ain't bad either ;)

// A Day In The Life.... \\
I know fashion blogs are supposed to be all about your fashion musings as well as some of your own personal style so as to give the readers a little sense of connection with the blogger, yada yada yaa.... & if you are a regular visitor on RoCkiNFaShIoN, well then it wouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that I am not necessarily the 'most' comfortable of ladies in front of the camera.
Sooooo therefore I have decided to do things a little differently this week with the help from Laura of blog Une Poupee.
 As of from Monday October 18th I will be posting on my blog once a day for the next 7 days, where I will try to give you a slightly more insightful & personal peep into my life! 
If there are any fellow bloggers reading this please feel free to follow suit...  tis a little bit of fun ;)

Here is my agenda.....

Day 1. your facebook profile photo
Day 2.  a photo that makes you laugh
Day 3. a photo that makes you happy
Day 4. a photo of someone you love
Day 5. a photo of you & your friends
Day 6. a photo of the last place you went on holiday
Day 7. a photo of yourself a year ago 
The End

Now lets get ready :)
