Travel diary: Armenia summer 2013

I'm all packed and ready for my flight to Armenia in a few hours and I'm really excited to visit the motherland in winter since I've never experienced it then. Actually, I've never experienced anywhere that snows in winter which means that, yes, I'm a 23 year old who's never seen snow!

I was only there back in august right after I went to Europe but because I got so busy when I got back I didn't have a chance to post up travel photos of my trip there. I'm really excited to show you all my motherland since most people's knowledge of the country pretty much only consists of Kim Kardashian. So in this post I'll show you a few photos of Armenia in summer and then when I get back I'll show you Armenia in winter.

In these photos you'll see that it's a beautiful country that is very famous for it's history and it's many churches since it was the first nation to accept christianity. It's also famous for its brandy; we visited one of their factorys while we were there and had a tasting after the tour.

Yellow peplum

I know I'm a little late to wish you all a merry christmas and happy new year but I truly hope you had a great holiday and that 2014 has started on a good note. I am so grateful for all of my experiences throughout the year, as you might have seen some of the highlights on instagram including: traveling (Singapore, UK, France, Italy, Armenia, Dubai) meeting great people through the 7AL blog, being part of an interdisciplinary industry project through uni, and finishing up my masters degree. I have been, however, neglecting my blog quite a lot lately but I feel like I needed some time off after I finished my degree to do nothing for a change and updating a blog, as much fun as it is, takes a lot of effort and time. Spending the last 2 weeks with my family and friends here in Dubai has been just what I needed to rejuvenate after a very stressful and exhausting year. 

I really appreciate those who still keep checking my instagram and facebook page though and I will start back posting on the blog twice a week (Mondays and Wednesdays at 6 am Melbourne timing).

In this outfit post I'm wearing a yellow peplum top I found in a boutique on Chapel Street that was sadly closing down. Although I'm sort of over the peplum trend I quite liked the elegant shoulder details this top had along with the mustard yellow colour which I've been obsessed with lately. I chose to play on the elegant vibe of the top and wear it with a plain black pencil skirt and my Guess black sandals I bought in galleries lafayette when I was in Paris a few months back. And the last detail to complete the outfit would have to be the red lipstick that looks great with anything yellow.
