Alice Cerea of Baby What's Up
She describes herself as a "young girl that is divided between love and passion, web and fashion." Alice Cerea of Baby What's Up?
is a fashionable 19 year old living in Bergamo, an Italian city near Milan.
Recently, we've noticed each other in the blogosphere and decided to just introduce each other on our respective blogs. Her blog is all about fashion, beauty and lifestyle and she loves to create outfits with particular accessories. She doesn't have a particular style (which is similar to me, and which is something I love about her) and she changes styles everyday from chic to rock!
Her motto is "Stay Strong" and she also has a matching tattoo in those words. I find that so beautiful and you can tell by her blog and collaborations that she's committed, super motivated and definitely talented! She sees herself as a strong and determined girl and believes everything she does until the end, which is something to be admired.
Like me, she's been in a long relationship with her boyfriend but she's also been happily engaged since 2009! Extremely beautiful, kind-hearted and awesome, follow her on her blog for more of this girl!

Here are a compilation of photos that have been taken over the past month. As you may have realised, I have disappeared from the face of MARIECHINO for just over a month and here I am trying to show you that I have been super busy!
I had a brief - extremely brief break from uni at the start of the month in which I spent a day at the beach then I have to go to Queensland for a few days to celebrate a wedding anniversary and took a lot of touristy photos as you can see. Day after I got back, straight back to uni and finalising our installation for FESTA Christchurch in which my studio at University of Technology, Sydney are collaborating with in an installation at Worcester Bridge in Christchurch, New Zealand with the aim of rebuilding Christchurch post-earthquake. So in only a short matter of time, I was back onto the plane to NZ for a whole week working on this installation.
It was a good experience in terms of learning more about the performative-spatial installation industry, however, I can't say I truly enjoyed myself. But, here's a beautiful photo for you to enjoy- taken whilst leaving New Zealand.
And that brings me to today, just a week and a half away from my final exhibition for 2nd year as an Interior and Spatial Design student, so please bear with me while I become a slight hermit again for the next two weeks.
I will make it up to you though, I promise.

You Make Me Feel Alright
A month later, I'm back! Firstly, I'd like to apologise for my lack of appearance on the interweb- no I'm not dead, but instead I have had one of the busiest months of 2013 so far. I'll be putting an update post after this so you can see all the reasons I have neglected my blog and lookbook for a whole month - I didn't even know it was that long :(
But first, something exciting- I'm officially part of the affiliate program for ASOS, which I am super super super happy about because ASOS has been my go-to for nearly absolutely everything that I own and to celebrate that, I will be having a head-to-toe-ASOS look coming up very soon!
Click on the banners on my side bar to check out ASOS and free shipping to Australia - no minimum charge! Come on people!
Hope you enjoy this look, took me a lot of courage to post it. I've always been insecure with my bust, and wearing something without any padding or push-up whatsoever really hits a spot. But I've decided to let go of some of that fear and insecurity, and try it out- makes me feel alright, despite me feeling like a boy..
Nevertheless, feels good to be back, loads to tell you- but you will have to wait for the next one.

Denim Tee - Lola vs. Harper
Shorts - ASOS
Sneakers - Converse
A playful spring look as the weather starts to heat up here in Sydney.
P.S - No matter how many times I may have worn these shorts and said that they were shorts, everyone always thinks it's a skirt. Always.

Sleeveless Tee - ZARA
Skirt - H&M
Creepers - Chicwish
Today, as I was editing these photos, a friend asked me whether I take photos of myself every morning before I go out. And as I reply with a "yes.....?", I realised how weird this concept may seem to some people. I mean, as much as I would like to have an awesome background every time I snap a outfit pic or have someone taking the photos for me to refrain from running and posing within the ten seconds available (sometimes very difficult because I like to trip and the wind likes to troll my hair). But I think I have yet to develop the self confidence to go to places outside with my tripod and pose. I suppose I just have to break out of this 'cage' I have enclosed around my confidence and somehow (as cheesy as it sounds) fly away.
Confidence is key to a lot of things, I think. Some days I'd feel attractive- whether or not it's how my hair looks today, or the way I did my makeup, or maybe I'm liking the way my legs look today- but when I feel attractive, it's almost I walk with so much self-confidence, that I think can make someone look extremely attractive.
I mean, in anything, as long as you're confident about it, there's a beauty within that already. When I see people flaunting their walk despite they may be having three day old hair, and wearing sweatpants and an old t-shirt, I find that when someone can do that despite not "looking" attractive, is such a beautiful thing.
This look is dedicated to you. Break out of that cage- whatever it may be, that is holding you back from being confident. It's all about how you feel about yourself because in the end, you can only count on yourself and the best friend you could ever have, is you.
