To New Beginnings…

We have survived 2016, in all it’s guts and glory. From the ascension of Donald Trump’s power to the passing of George Michael we are welcomed to a new year of new beginnings, aspirations, wise decisions and many SUCCESSES. It seems as though time has gained momentum and with each year passing, the days and months fly by so quickly it sometimes feel as though we’re living in a dream. Are we living or are we just going by the motion of the brevity of existence. It was almost yesterday where we welcomed 2016, celebrated Easter with family and friends, decked our houses in spooky Halloween decorations and joined in on the crazy Christmas shopping frenzy and here we are in the first month of the new year. A clean slate. This year should be a time to focus on ourselves and set adequate goals for ourselves. Whether it be something to prosper your study or work situation or for health gains, make sure that you write a detailed and well thought out plan. Let’s also …

Whats In A Room

I was recently looking at my old iMovie clips where I used to film and edit short clips and happened to stumble upon a ‘room tour’ video from 2 years ago. A lot has changed since in regards to the design, layout, what products I use and my personal style. I used to love intricate detailings and I was obsessed with cute and girly things.. in other words everything had to be pink and luscious. I’ve screenshotted my favourite stills from the video and hope you enjoy these aesthetically pleasing shots of what used to be my bedroom ^_^ My dresser with my old favourites including a vintage angel candle that was my grandma’s and I now use as a jewellery holder, Glasshouse scented candle in Tahaa, easter bunny from my aunty, skull from Daiso, vintage mini plate with renaissance designs that I use as my everyday jewellery holder.  I thought the Tiffany box complimented the bunny. When I was younger, the only thing I wanted in life was a studious pink desk with mini …

Instagram Poems + Fake Friends

She had blue skin,  and so did he,  He kept it hid, and so did she,  They searched for blue, Their whole life through, Then passed right by- And never knew. This was a poem I read earlier today on Instagram (@emmamercury) and it stuck with me all day. It made me remember all those times when I would put on a ‘mask’ in front of people in a hopeless attempt to get them to like me more, thinking that they would be impressed or that I would become more popular, likeable and even beautiful. Now that I am 20, I’ve learnt a lot about myself and although I still have much much more to learn from, I feel that the me one, five and ten years ago was completely different than the person who I am today. So I’ve compiled a list of 7 things (to keep it short and sweet) of things that I have learnt over the brief period of years. Hope you enjoy xx You can’t get everyone to like you… and that’s …

Don’t We Have It All?

  I am currently listening to a remix of ‘Lost Frequencies‘ (click on the song name for 2 and a half minutes of ear-gasm) and became immersed in recollections and ideas that have been on my mind recently as well as a sudden spark of thoughts so I hastily opened my blog and here I am typing away. I hope my conglomerated flow of ideas aren’t too confusing to understand. Listening to this song struck a chord for me; I don’t know if it was the upbeat bass that always gets me pumped up, or the simple lyrics leaving room for interpretation. Either way, I was suddenly taken on a journey starting from my childhood and ending up to present day. I was on a magic carpet ride of notes and tunes lulling me from my memories of the past to present day me. ‘I can fly high, I can go low’ transported me to when I was 6 years old. Fingers sticky from lemonade icy poles and wearing brightly coloured scrunchies, I dreamt of what I …
