RENOVATED MINIMALIST ROOM TOUR

Minimalist rooms and monochrome bedrooms are very in, why? Because they un-doubtingly look elegant, or as I like to call, ‘finished school and need a more grown-up room’ theme. What? It’s relatable! 😛 Pinterest is full of minimalist room decor ideas and simple light colour themes. I loved the idea as it makes me feel grown up! I absolutely LOVE how my...

CHRISTMAS LUNCH

Christmas is a beautiful time of the year whereby the whole family comes together talking over an ice cold mojito in one hand and a cheese cracker in the other! Living rooms that were once lit up by a single floor lamp are now adorned by hundreds of fairy lights and christmas ornaments. The smiles, the presents, the laughters, the...

HALLOWEEN DECOR

Halloween decorations have to be the second best thing I look forward to at this time of the month! Throughout the years that I have celebrated Halloween, i’ve always opted for the blood and life size skeletons – in other words, scary decor. But this time round, I wanted to do something different and opted for the ‘elegant’ side of...

ICED COFFEE: NESPRESSO DELONGHI

Iced Coffee! Uhhhhh my favourite thing in the world – after chocolate – even in this 2-degree-freezing-cold winter I still NEED it! I’ve had many in the past, milky, bitter, extra shot, in a carton or bottle, and have liked all of them, my favourite being the Barista Bros Double Espresso Iced Coffee! I prefer mine without any ice cream...

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES THAT ACTUALLY HELPED ME IN LIFE

Social media, especially Pinterest, is flooded with quotes be it love, friendship, hatred, inspiration you name it! They’re also hundreds of motivational quotes out there and if you’re like me, then you’d just scroll through, read a deep quote, think about it for 2 minutes, and just go ‘meh, i’ll do it tomorrow’. But these quotes really did make an...

(I just found out there was a makeup brand called NARS like a month ago so no one’s judging anyone :P). Well for starters, i’m not a very ‘makeup person’ myself and...
