On The Desk


This wooden hand is one of my favorite things on my desk. I've wanted to buy one for so long and finally, I got one from amazon for my final project. This hand is pretty small, but it does an amazing job at keeping some of my favorite rings in place and it makes a really nice decoration.

Another thing that I love is the marble cheese platter that I got from a thrift store. I just can't say no when I saw it, I carried the heavy cheese platter around the city all day, but it was definitely worth it.

Blank Space


This is one of a few reasons that I haven't been around. My lease is finally up at the current place and and after a long process of apartment hunting and all that jazz, my friend and I finally found a great studio apartment to share. I can't describe how excited I am, a big weight on my shoulder has been lifted, now I can just focus on my finals.

I already have the bulk of things there and we took a not so little trip to IKEA the other day to get our most of our furniture and holy cow, it was exhausting. The next phase is wait for the items to come in and building them.

I can't wait to share my workspace with you!

March Loves


The long-ish overdue post is here! March has been crazy and amazing, I've been doing so many shoots and collaborations for my portfolio and midterms, can't believe there's only 5 weeks left until the end of the Spring semester! 

Staying hydrated is very important and I always have water with me when I go out and about. Unfortunately, I left my water bottle back in Bali so I had to get a new one. After a bit of thinking, I decided to get a glass water bottle. It's heavier than plastic water bottle but it's so much nicer and more durable than the plastic ones.

2. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in sultry
I have my friend to thank for this one. We were walking around Target and as always, we paid the beauty section a visit. After staring at some of the options, she suggested I should get this color and boy oh boy, it's such a nice color. It's a good color to get me fall back in love with my red lipsticks.

I mentioned that I got this hand cream on my last post and I have been loving it. It smells beautiful and it's not sticky at all. The size is perfect for me to have it in my bag at all times.

4. Hand-me-down watch
My dad gave me this watch that was once my mum's. I'm definitely more of a gold person but I've been meaning to start mixing metals and this watch is definitely a good start. It's very simple and goes with everything.

I've been carrying this little number when I don't need to carry tons of stuff with me. It's spacious and I love the nice mix of texture of it.

What have you been loving?

Recent Buys


It has been quite a while since I shared my last 'Recent Buys' post, so here we go, the things I've bought the past month(ish).

Let's start off with the plain notebook I got from Muji last week. I've never been to Muji (not that I remember of) but when I found out that they have a sore in San Francisco, I went nuts! and the best part is, they have a stamp station (this is the 6 year old girl inside of me screaming with joy), so of course I had to stamp some stuff on my new notebook. Do I need a new notebook? Probably not. Oops.

Let's move on from me buying something I don't need to something I actually need – hand cream. I have dry hands and I've finished my usual small hand cream that I carry around. I know that TBS has some good hand creams so I checked their website because usually they have great deals there and guess what, I got the small body butter, small hand cream, mini soap and a mini loofah for less than $10 (they were having a sale at the time), bingo! 

3. Delicate Rings
I forgot that I purchased the rings a month ago on Aliexpress. Delicate jewelries is something that I really, really like and I think they are a nice way to add something to a plain outfit.

I exchanged 2 pairs of jeans that I got from their online website that didn't fit well for these shoes because I needed a pair of pumps for a shoot I was doing and at the time. I had no choice but keep it because I cut the price tag off from the shoes but on the bright side, I can cross off black pumps from my wardrobe staple list, you'll never know when you need a pair of black pumps.

I haven't been to H&M for a long time now, I just wasn't in the mood to shop – weird, I know. I walked into H&M one day and saw this bag, I just had to have it because I need a small bag other than the random bag I got from Marshall's that you've all seen a billion time (here, here, here, and many more). 

Let me know some of your recent buys!
p.s. I asked what you wanted to see more on this blog on my last post, go check it out ;)

Checking In




Hey there, how are you? I'm checking in today to let you know I'm still alive and very well. I have these pictures and I had no idea what to do with them so here you go, it was some of the pictures that I took last week when I was getting ready before running some errands. And it's spring break! But it's not actually a break - my instructors gave me plenty of assignments.

I'm having a major writer's block right now. I have a couple of ideas but I still need more and why not ask you, right? So here it is: What do you guys want to see? What do you want me to talk about more? More fashion/style posts (I'm still trying to find a better spot in my room to take OOTD's), photography related (I'm no professional, but I enjoy it very, very much), something about makeup/skincare, anything? Please let me know!

p.s. The lovely Augusta kicked off a new series on her blog called "blogger interview" and she asked me a few questions, go check it out here and give her some love :)
