Man Of Few Words

Top: Stradivarius | Skirt: thrifted | Shoes: Zara
Bag: Michael Kors | Necklace: Forever 21
Lips: Tarte Amazonian Lip Butter in Watermelon

It's been awhile again since I posted anything and I deeply missed writing. However, the demands of the new job hinder me from creating anything that would be sensible and of interest for this blog. Aside from the fact that I am far too tired to do anything when I get home, my brain is just filled with thoughts about work (and a new project I am working on) for me to be able to write anything. I wish I can write lengthy posts again that make sense and come up with topics that are relevant and interesting. I wish that was still the case.

Summer Makeup Routine

The cold season was short lived (and I really wish it could be longer) and summer has finally arrived. With the change of season, I also decided to switch up a few makeup products. I don't normally pile on makeup but I tend to wear more during the cold season. But now that it started to become hot and humid I wear less makeup. I sweat a lot so I skip on anything with coverage during the summer (though I would dab a few dots of concealer under my eye - just under my eye).

S Is For Success

We all dream of becoming successful. That is basically what we live for. We work so hard because we want to be successful in our jobs. We study diligently so we can become successful in the future. We do things the way we do because our goal in life is to become successful. But one thing that many people fail to realize is the fact that success does not happen overnight. It is a combination of patience, hard work, passion and time.

Napa Valley, California, USA (Oxbow Public Market)

After a morning spent touring Castello di Amorosa, my aunt and I decided to visit the infamous Oxbow Public Market. It took another 2 hours from the castle to get here and by the time we arrived, we were both famished. We decided to eat at Gott's Roadside for a typical American lunch: burgers, fries and milkshake. I had been craving for a smooth, creamy milkshake for days and it was finally satisfied here. The diner was decorated with Halloween decor and it was just the cutest!

Napa Valley, California, USA (Castello di Amorosa)

Despite the strong jetlag, my aunt and I braved the cold streets of San Bruno to catch the first BART train to El Cerrito Del Nort station. We then had to ride a bus for more than 2 hours to reach Castello di Amorosa. The commute to reach "The Castle," as it is locally known, was not smooth. It took us almost 4 hours both ways and we got lost along the way but it was definitely worth the trip.

New Girl

Dress: Free People | Shoes: Ted Baker: Bag: Rebecca Minkoff
Watch: Swatch | Choker: Bershka
Lips: Tarte Amazonian Lip Butter in Plummy Rose

As I mentioned in my previous post I took a break for a while because I had to do some major adjustments both in my life and my work. Everything was new to me and it was quite overwhelming initially but as I got used to the day to day demands and schedule of this new phase in my life, I suddenly felt more at ease. So now I am back, alive and still kicking (and a few pounds heavier than the last post).

My Beauty Goals for 2017

This is long overdue but I am posting it anyway. Apologies for the hiatus yet again. As mentioned in previous posts, I transferred to a new workplace and there were adjustments I had to face. It was a challenging first few weeks for me so I decided to just slow down with my extra curricular activities and focus on work. I had to learn so many things in so little time and I felt exhausted afterwards. But now that I feel like I adjusted well, I am back to regular programming.
