I'M IN LOVE WITH WASHINGTON DC

July 13, 2018


A few months back, I visited Washington D.C. and fell in love. I knew I would have to make a trip back since there was still so much to explore. Just two weeks ago, my boyfriend and I went back to D.C. and had so much fun. I fell more in love with the city the second time. I love the abundance of flowers, the mix of old and new architecture, less crowded areas, friendly people, and good food. I can see myself living there.


We met up with two of our friends there and spent the weekend catching up. That weekend was insanely hot which made it not so fun to be outside. Summer is great with its long days but the heat is just overbearing. 


There was also an authentic Japanese restaurant we stumbled upon on Yelp called Kotobuki. I was drawn in by the unagi photos and it was nothing less than what I expected. So delicious! Don't let the place fool you - it's good. The unagi don comes with four sides (also delicious) but I was stuffed after eating everything. If you're in the area, I highly recommend going here. You won't be disappointed!


For the last day, we picked up some Philz Coffee before parting ways because our friend is obsessed with their coffee. I have to admit it's one of the few coffee drinks I actually enjoy but it's so strong that it made me jittery afterwards :( 

The weekend went by so fast, and again, I felt like I didn't get to see or do much. We've already talked about coming back because there's still so much more I haven't explored. There's still the botanical gardens that I've been wanting to check out since my first trip but things keep getting in the way. Hopefully I finally get to go there next time.

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

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!
