Why I struggle to live in the moment

Why I struggle to live in the moment

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars. - Norman Vincent Peale  As I sit down to write this, I've just wiped my eyes after having yet another (no doubt 'time of the month' induced) little emotional breakdown. To be perfectly honest putting into words the reasons behind this slip [...]

We moved to Vancouver, BC!

We moved to Vancouver, BC!

Welcome back to my apologetically inconsistent blogging and another post! I intended to write this one a little over two weeks ago but that thing called 'life' got majorly in the way and sitting down to write was unfortunately low down on the list of priorities as I attempted to set up shop in Canada. [...]

24 hours in pretty Paris

24 hours in pretty Paris

Ah Paris! To many known as the city of love and to all known as the fashion hub of Europe, if not the world. But what's it really like to navigate the twenty arrondissements that make up the French capital in just one day? Getting there: For this particular trip, Paris became an extension onto [...]

2018: Where have I been?

2018: Where have I been?

So I am for sure a little late to the party with the new year new me - esque posts as it is already one week into March, however in true Luce style it's better late then never. Actually scrap that, this post is less of a resolution stating list but rather a life update [...]

My balls have soul, do yours?

My balls have soul, do yours?

I was approached by Case Company via email last week asking me to review their company. Not one to say no to freebies, I happily obliged and do not regret my decision in the slightest. The company, based in Ghent, Belgium, is a website run retailer selling the most beautiful phone and laptop cases for [...]

The Girl on the Train: the most anticipated thriller of the year

The world oozed excitement on hearing that Paula Hawkins’s best selling thriller novel was being adapted for a film. Anticipating the translation of words to moving pictures many have been left disappointed at Tate Taylor’s version of The Girl on the Train. Having devoured the pages of her novel myself, I must admit critics have a [...]

Bjork bares her soul in the divisive Somerset House digital display

Bjork bares her soul in the divisive Somerset House digital display

I had the opportunity to visit the anticipated Bjork Digital exhibition at Somerset House last week and I can only describe the experience as peculiar. Admittedly, I had never heard of the Icelandic singer, and thus had absolutely no idea what to expect behind the doors of the beautiful venue. What I did find, however, was [...]

Finding fashion through cultural restraints: an interview with student, Afifah Ahamd

Finding fashion through cultural restraints: an interview with student, Afifah Ahamd

Afifah has her back to the scorching sun as she lounges in a wicker chair on the terrace of Conde Nast College. She is poised, waiting for my questions with anticipation and an air of easy confidence. Dressed in a pale pink off the shoulder cotton shirt and a pair of white jeans, she oozes [...]

Corruption killing the Fashion Industry one social media star at a time

Corruption killing the Fashion Industry one social media star at a time

The world’s most disputed industry, fashion has always seemed to march to the beat of its own drum and follow its own set of guidelines. Morals and corruption have been called into question many a time, however it never seems to change the way it operates. Has the recent marriage of social media culture and [...]
