Last week I got a little crazy on the old ASOS website & ordered three lots of clothing within the space of one week. As torturous as it is waiting for packages on different days, the semi-surprise of mail was nice. Ok, it wasn't really surprising at all as I obsessively tracked them items on an hourly basis.

& if it looks like I'm really grumpy & just crawled out of bed it's because that's exactly the situation going on here. I tried to cover up my fatigue with layers of eye makeup but the result is just me looking as though I've stayed up for a week straight or like I've fallen down the stairs with blows to both eyes.

Make up is not my forte.

Ending on a positive note though, my mom is finally back from Thailand after a month away & brought with her my favourite periodical; Cheeze Magazine & a heap of cute stationary. Follow me on instagram @thefashannmonster if you're interested in seeing the parts of my life that don't make it onto here.

Have a great weekend!

I don't really like denim. I don't wear a lot of it. I don't understand how people rave it's comfort. 
& I especially do not like denim jackets. No matter how classic they are deemed to be.

What am I doing with this jacket, then you say? Honestly, there's no real reason. I must have had a temporary lapse of Shannon brain or realised that my winter wardrobe is virtually non existent, however, I've actually grown to like this piece. It's easy to throw on, keeps me really warm, has pockets & gives me what I'd like to think is that off duty model look.

Minus the head & body of course.

Looking out of my window at this very moment I can see the rain thundering down across the water leaving me to ponder how the trees manage to stay upright in the wind when our metal clothes line snapped in half during the storm I slept through last night.

It's a far cry from the scene of boats and jet skis zipping across the water and the clear blue skies just a couple of months ago & when there's no vacations on the horizon to look forward to, viewing House Of Cannon's collections is about as close as it gets.

There's nothing quite like wrapping your self in luxurious silks adorned in bright colours and statement prints and there's something so cosmopolitan and seriously cool about a label that features a different city with each collection. I think after going through the new Hong Kong Halcyon collection and lusting after the Nocturnal New Orleans pieces, it comes pretty damn close to a holiday.

Now begs the question; which are your favourite prints & pieces? Drop a comment below, I'm curious to see how everyone's tastes differ.

Have great week.

The Nocturnal New Orleans collection is available now and Hong Kong Halcyon drops in August.

PS. Don't forget to check out the Kiddo Kyoto collection to be transported to the streets of Japan where traditional meets modern, before everything sells out! & it will. Fast.
