mixtape #2


Hello, hello. It has been quite a while since I last posted anything. Summer this year is very different from last year to say the least. I’m interning for a start up leather good brand here in San Francisco, I took a Summer intersession class and Summer classes (I feel like I’m going to pass out, I really need a break). My parents coming to visit me soon and we’re going to leave the city for seven days for a little tour - similar to the one I went to when I first got here, the excitement level is really really high.

But before all the excitement begin, I need to finish my summer classes and I need to find inspiration. Being uninspired is one of the worst feeling, at least for me. I’ve been reading novels, doodling, watching movies, walk around, went into stores, sitting in front of my laptop for hours and hours, but I’m still looking. Hopefully, with this little trip coming up, I’ll be inspired again. I’ll be documenting the trip of course, bringing both my DSLR and SLR and I’ll share the results here.


For now, I’ll just leave you with some songs that I’ve been listening to, enjoy, and have a great day! x

Mid-June Loves




Hello, hello! Half of the year is gone and 2015 has treating me amazingly so far. I missed my monthly favorites for May, and I don't want to wait until the end of June to write this post. So here is my Mid-June favorites!

1. Olympus Pen EE-2
As you might know, I am completely in love with film photography now. I often find myself scrolling through eBay looking at film cameras, which is not very healthy. I carry camera with me most of the time now, because it is very travel friendly. It's a lot lighter than my Minolta SRT-101 and it's smaller and fits into every bag I own. 

2. Umbra Jewelry Organizer
I was museum hopping with my friend and when we visited the museum store I was so fascinated with brand called Umbra. They had different things on display and the one that caught my eyes is this accessories organizer. The geometric design is what I love the most about it, so simple but very pleasing to the eye (well, at least to my eyes they are).

3. LUSH Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask
I love walking into LUSH but I find the store a bit overwhelming - there are so many products and they all smell good! My skin hasn't been the best lately, so I figured it's time to have a little pamper. I've used it for 3 or four times now and it made my skin feels really nice and calm.

4. Nicole by O.P.I in That's Putting It Mild
Basically the only color on my nails for the past month or two. It's not too grey, not too nude, not too white. It goes with everything I wear and it looks really simple, clean, and subtle.

5. Name necklace
Recently, my roommate went for a trip to New York and she got me this necklace as a souvenir. I've been trying to find a necklace with my initial on it but having a hard time finding the one that I like. When my roommate came back and gave me this necklace, I was so excited! It's a great piece to layer with my other necklaces.

What's your favorite thing this month so far?

Weekend Tunes




A little playlist of songs that has been playing on loop in my head. I've been spending my nights after my online summer intersession class doodling, drinking tea, and thinking.

On Film: Mission













The day we decided to ditch DSLRs and go with SLRs instead (and low quality phone camera). It was so much fun, not knowing what the result will look like, which by the way was a bit blurrier that I thought it would be. These aren't everything from that day, I have the other half on my other film roll that is still in my camera.

Currently Obsessed: Whites





source: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 

White and bright. Two things that I keep reblog on tumblr and repin on pinterest, especially when it comes to interiors. I got mostly white things for my new space and I'm very pleased with it, the color makes everything looks brighter and lighter. I just can't get enough!
