    A BTS-Related Post

    Life  |  Austin, TX

    My mood for the past week was slightly down, so I felt a need to make a light-hearted post celebrating my favorite music group – BTS. The reason for my mood is because I read a webcomic which completely wrecked me. I sat in contemplation for hours after finishing it. Plus work is a bundle of stress. Anyway, I digress. BTS never fails to put a smile on my face. Even if you may not be a fan of Korean music, in RM’s words, “music & performance transcends language, countries, races”. Broaden your horizons!

    Café Corner: My Coffee Bar Tour

    Café Corner: My Coffee Bar Tour

    Life  |  Austin, TX

    Bar carts are – in my opinion – very chic. I love their aesthetic and spirit bottles quite often have amazing packaging. However, I do not consume alcohol, and I don’t entertain the idea of having it on my premises for guests either. So having a bar cart seemed moot. Then I saw an idea for a coffee bar on Pinterest. Now that concept was straight up my alley! Thus I created a little café corner in my apartment. I’ve accumulated little knick-knacks over time, and now it’s finally ready to be featured on my blog. Sip a chai latte, nibble on some macarons, and get settled – let’s start!

    Productivity Tips (+ Free Printable)

    Life  |  Austin, TX

    With social distancing, it’s easy to start neglecting yourself and your everyday tasks. The kitchen is fully stocked with snacks, Netflix is ready for binging, and everything just seems so… dull without anywhere to go. I definitely have felt that way for the past few days, and I definitely also saw myself slipping into an unhealthy routine of simply working, eating, sleeping, and watching TV. So I am making this post to inspire me just as much as I hope it inspires you. Let’s be productive together!

    Urban Decay Naked II & III Palettes: First Look

    Urban Decay Naked II & III Palettes: First Look

    Beauty  |  Austin, TX

    When I bought the original Urban Decay Naked palette, I was a student in art school working a $13.50 per hour job as a graphic designer. It was the first thing I bought for myself with my own hard-earned money, and it is still one of the most beautiful, versatile palettes that I own. Of course, I wanted to complete the collection so I recently purchased both the Naked II and III palettes. The eyeshadows in each are different from the original so I thought it would be helpful to give my first impressions on the shades, formulation, packaging, and overall opinions. Read on for my thoughts!

    Kate Spade New York has consistently been one of my favorite brands since 2014. The product designs are whimsical, feminine, and classic – some of the traits I aspire to be. Plus they have wonderful sales! Over the last couple years, I’ve accumulated quite a collection of lovely things by Kate Spade. So in this post, I simply wanted to look back at a few particular pieces which I can safely call my “favorite” (though honestly, all of them are my favorite). Some of them may not be available, but I will link something similar.
