    Ame Games: Okami HD (Nintendo Switch)

    Life  |  Austin, TX

    Playing video games was a huge part of my childhood, and has inspired many of my goals. So I thought it appropriate to add a gaming category – Ame Games – to my blog. In this post I shall be reviewing Okami HD, a glorious game by Clover Studios, originally created for Playstation 2 and Nintendo Wii. I had played the PS2 version years ago and loved it. Okami was re-released digitally for the Switch in August 2018, and social distancing has provided a perfect excuse to non-stop game. Read on for my thoughts!

    Social Distancing & Ways to Cope

    Social Distancing & Ways to Cope

    Life  |  Austin, TX

    It’s been a full week since I’ve started social distancing. With the exception of getting groceries (an ordeal, for sure), I haven’t left my apartment. And with that comes a certain feeling of restlessness and uncertainty. We are living in unprecedented times; there aren’t many predictions we can make about the predicament, at least at the present. I have faith that things will get better soon so let’s keep up the positivity. In the meantime, be sure to stay home! It’s not only safe for yourself, but you will be keeping others safe at the same time. Here are some things to make the experience more enjoyable.

    Best MAC Lipsticks For Indian Skin Tones

    Best MAC Lipsticks For Indian Skin Tones

    Beauty  |  Austin, TX

    Being Indian with a neutral olive skin tone, discovering the perfect shades of lipstick can be a daunting task. My lips are pigmented and dark by themselves so finding shades that even show up is challenging haha. I’ve searched high and low for the most suitable shades and I’ve find a couple throughout the years. In this post, I shall be introducing a few MAC lipsticks that flatter my skin. Hopefully this provides a nice reference for someone like myself who is still stuck in the search process.

    My Nail Care Routine

    My Nail Care Routine

    Beauty  |  Austin, TX

    Every Sunday, I like to spend a couple hours pampering myself and beautifying. It feels wonderful to dedicate time to my appearance. Last year, I had decided to try out acrylic nails for a few months, but honestly I wasn’t so pleased with the results and it was incredibly damaging as well. So I decided to just do it myself. This way I could control what I put on my fingernails, as well as make them look exactly as I want. Read on to see my procedure.

    Ted Baker Cepap Runner Sneakers Unboxing

    Ted Baker Cepap Runner Sneakers Unboxing

    Style  |  Austin, TX

    Ted Baker London is quickly becoming one of my favorite designers. These sneakers are my first fashion purchase from the brand, and I couldn’t be happier with them. I decided to invest in a new pair of sneakers as I need motivation to get my currently unmotivated self to the gym. Honestly I wasn’t actively looking for sneakers but when I saw these on the website, I literally gasped. Plus they were on clearance… so, well you know how this story goes. Here’s my unboxing and first impressions!
