  • April 2021 Sakuraco Box: A Taste Test

    April 2021 Sakuraco Box: A Taste Test

    Life  |  Home

    Last month, I ordered the April 2021 Sakuraco box, a new monthly Japanese tea/traditional snack subscription service. Basically, you get a box of 20 authentic, locally-sourced Japanese snacks, teas, and home goods delivered to you every month for less than $50. Not a bad deal, especially considering that you can’t find any of these treats outside of Japan. Here I document the unboxing, give my first impressions, and taste test everything. Enjoy!

    2021 Goals & 2020 Recap

    2021 Goals & 2020 Recap

    Life  |  Home

    Well, it’s officially 2021. When 2020 began, I had so many things scheduled. Then… COVID-19 struck. Everyone’s plans were quickly dashed. While confined to our homes, we embarked on a different sort of lifestyle. The world may never go back to the same “normal” of pre-2020, but I do hope that 2021 will provide a respite. Honestly, 2020 taught me many lessons and gave me reason to be grateful for so many aspects of my life. I wanted to record my thoughts (and some Instagram stories) in this post, so here goes!

    A “Feel Good” Haul

    A “Feel Good” Haul

    Style  |  Home

    Every once in a while, I like to treat myself to some lovely things. Now I know materialism isn’t the key to happiness, but sometimes, it’s okay to indulge. We all work hard, so we definitely deserve something nice. Personally, luxurious hauls are amongst my favorite types of blog posts to read, as well as Youtube videos to watch. Perhaps it is just me being a typical Taurus (lol), but I simply love high-end and beautiful things. Read on to find out more about my buys.

    Life During 2020

    Life During 2020

    Life  |  Home

    With so much happening in the world and so many feelings swirling around in my head, I took an unplanned break from blogging and social media. It’s become exceedingly difficult to not feel down-in-the-dumps while scrolling through news reports. Honestly the past few months have been overwhelming and I’m still sorting through all my priorities. Goals have been set back months, if not a year or two. Inspiration and motivation seem lacking. This feeling is shared by many of us, I’m sure.

    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!
