IN MOTION

May 7, 2018


Wearing: YESSTYLE shirt, Missguided tank, thrifted jeans, Forever21 boots & hat, Chanel bag

Funny how when spring weather finally comes around, I'm still wearing white and black. I was trying to wear an outfit with more color but my heart was gravitating towards this color palette but one can do no wrong with a monochrome outfit.

My friend told me, "you look like a Shinjuku ass bitch." I'm feeling that vibe.

SUNDAY RILEY POP UP SHOP

April 17, 2018


Sunday Riley Pop Up Shop - open until April 15th!

Spring weather made a small appearance over the weekend and everyone was happy about it. Everyone was trying to flex their outfits, wearing dresses and tank tops they were itching to wear. The weather has went back to being gloomy but I'm ready to retire my puffer jacket. It felt so nice walking around without a jacket!

Since the weather was so nice, I decided to check out the Sunday Riley pop up shop that's only open until the 15th. I'm surprised how short of a time they're open for but I'm glad I had time to make a visit. 

I wasn't sure what to expect since I've only seen a few photos on Instagram, but as many things are now, it is an Instagram friendly zone. They also give out free samples for you to try out their products which was such a nice surprise. I've heard a lot of great things about their skincare and have been wanting to try but didn't want to dish out $100 before knowing if it was good for my skin. There's also a cute little candy bar that you can grab your favorite candies. What's so great about this pop up shop is it's free! FREE-99. 

I can't wait to try out the samples and I hope they live up to the hype.

THRIFT WITH ME & HAUL

March 25, 2018

Thrift with me!

In a previous blog post, I talked about feeling a little uninspired so my solution to that problem was to go thrifting. I went with some pieces in mind that I hoped to find and I think I got pretty lucky because I found a lot of things I wanted. It also feels great to be able to find such good pieces for such an affordable price. The thrift shop I went to was called Urban Jungle but they have multiple locations called L Train Vintage. It's one of the more popular ones I've seen around NYC and I do recommend checking it out. They have a bunch of denim jackets, vintage high waisted denim, and more.

HOT CHOCOLATE AND CHILL

March 13, 2018






📍 White Noise Coffee / 4102 162nd Street, Flushing, NY 11358

Wearing Zara blazer, Walmart hoodie, Zara jeans, F21 boots

There was supposed to be a snow storm today so I thought it would be the perfect day to grab my favorite hot chocolate. Thankfully it stopped snowing around the afternoon. Winter days get longer and longer each year but I'm more than ready for spring weather. I miss wearing just a blazer out instead of bundling up to the point where I'm wobbling like a penguin.

I've mentioned this on my Instagram before, but my favorite hot chocolate is from this cafe. My boyfriend and I come here when we need our delicious hot chocolate fix. As for their food, I'm not really a fan of but it seems other people enjoy it. I wanted to try their green tea ice cream today but they don't have it anymore! Apparently it was only available for a limited time due to the holidays but I hope they decide to have it again. It looked so good and I'm sad I missed out on trying it!

Also can we talk about my skin?! I don't know about you but I've been obsessed with how my skin has been looking these past few days. I added a new step/product into my skincare routine and I feel like it has changed my skin for the better. My skin feels baby soft and it looks brighter compared to before. I'm loving the glow. I was thinking about doing a post on the miracle product so let me know if that's something you're interested in seeing. I'm also thinking of filming a skincare routine video soon as I've been asked before but didn't have a set routine so keep a look out for that!

WELCOMING MARCH

March 11, 2018



Hi, March. Hi, you. Long time no chat. 

I know I always say this but time flies by so fast. We're already three months in to 2018 but I already feel like this year has been a bunch of revelations. You know, it's the year of like, realizing things. For me, at least. I'm coming to terms with a lot of things I can't change and accepting them as they are. The old me would've been much more emotional and lash out due to my frustrations, but I find myself being much better now. I keep this quote close to my heart: if you are unhappy with your situation, do something to change it. If you can't change it, change the way you look at it. It's so nice to feel like I've grown and matured, that I've made some improvement to being a better version of myself.

I've also been thinking of how else I can better my life which led me to start learning a new language. I started self teaching myself Japanese, though I am teaching myself at a very, very, very slow pace. (I am procrastinating for sure and I feel guilty about it, don't judge me). Ever since I came back from Japan, it has been on my mind to learn the language but I'm not learning it as fast as I want to. That's my own fault for not prioritizing and managing my time better but self teaching can be difficult. All I've managed to learn are a few hiragana characters so I've got a loonggg way to go. The good thing is I even started at all so I give myself a light pat on the back for that.

Now I always say I'll hit the gym every year but I really want to start getting more fit. Getting older is kicking my ass and I can already feel the weakness that's seeping into my bones. Shit. I walk up a few flight of stairs and I'm panting like I've just climbed Mt Everest. Ya gurl needs some exercise. Vinny suggested a different method that'll help me create a better habit for working out which is to have no zero days. What that means is whether it's one squat, ten squats, or fifty - just do it. Every day. That way you can build up the habit of doing it compared to going all out in the beginning only to not do anything for the rest of the year. I'm not gonna lie, I've had some zero days. I really have to discipline myself harder.

I'm also having a crazy phase of outfit-block (meaning I never know what to wear). First world problems, I know, but how I dress has so much to do with how I feel so when I'm wearing a shitty outfit, I can't help but feel like a mess. Maybe it's because my style is slightly changing? I need to purge my closet again but if you're interested in buying anything from my purge, you can always check my Depop account! Please excuse the crappy photos.

Anyway, time to head to bed. Today is daylight savings so it's already 4:21AM. I need my beauty sleep!
