After living here for over a year, we still consider ourselves new to the city. This is probably because we generally stay within a 10 block radius of our apartment and only rarely travel beyond our own imaginary borders. Thankfully, all my favourite Shanghai people live relatively close and also live dat boMbA$$ ~FrEeLaNcE*LyFe~ ヽ(´Д`)人(´Д`)人(´Д`)ノ My self-employed friends and I have to struggle each month or even week to stack that cheese (a girl’s gotta make it rain sometimes okay) but on the other hand, we have the freedom of calling each other up morning-of or day before and meeting up for 4 hour lunch meals or all day fun in the park.

My dear friend Hart of Shanghai Style File needed me to shoot her for an awesome “Day in the Life” post on the holy moly yoga site Lulu Lemon. Shooting Hart meant hanging out all day (in the c-c-c-c-c-old), eating pastries at Farine and ending post-shoot with a glass of wine! We shot a couple of looks in Fuxing Park (my first time there) and I couldn’t believe how much it reminded me of Paris when Jason and I would wake up early every morning and cross the Pont Royal bridge to le Jardin des Tuileries. When the weather warms up a bit in SH, we’ll definitely be scootering our way over to Fuxing park to hang out – the only kicker is that they don’t allow dogs ૮( ꒦ິ࿄꒦ີ)ა Oh well I guess Sumo will just continue sleeping all day and night at home!

On dirait que Paris non?
