📍 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!

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!

Merry Christmas! 

Hello, hello! It's been such a long time since I've touched this blog but I'm trying to get myself back into it. Christmas just passed and it was so much fun spending time with family and friends. Times like these remind me of how blessed I am to have the people that I have in my life. 

Being with family was great. We ate food, opened presents, and laughed a lot together. We also took a few cute polaroids. I've also had a few Christmas celebrations with friends which was nice too. There's still one more friendsmas before my Christmas celebrations are completely over. After that, it's the new year! Can you believe the time?!

I hope everyone is having a great time during the holidays!

Prints from Printiki
Check out their Instagram for inspo! 

I've recently taken off my huge calendar on my gallery wall and have been looking for a replacement to cover the huge empty space. My plan is to install a wall shelf, add some cool art pieces, and add some personal photos for a personal touch. 

Printiki reached out to me asking if I wanted to print some photos and it couldn't have been a better time. I chose their square M prints in a matte finish I love how they came out. The photo quality is just what I was looking for. I chose to print out a lot of my travel photos of this year because I was thinking of starting a creative scrapbook and thought these would be the perfect size to incorporate in my new journal. I'm excited to start that soon.

Celine nano <3
Watch the unboxing here
Handbag porn, anyone?

Look at this beauty. Anyone else feel me on this one? It's my anniversary with my Celine this summer and I will say that I'm still so in love with this bag. I've also kept it in really great condition so it still looks brand new. These photos were actually laying around in the archives but I thought I'd share for anyone who is as into handbags as I am.

One thing that has surprised me about this bag is that it's not as easy to scratch as I thought. My nails have grazed across the bag a few times and I thought I had scratched it but nope, nothing. Imagine the horror I initially had! That's not to say if you accidentally scrape your keys against the bag it won't do any damage, but something small like your nails grazing across won't make any crazy dents.

A subscriber had asked me to do a styling video with the Celine nano a while back and I do have that video in mind! I hope to get that out to you guys but really, this bag can match with any outfit.
