Setting Up a Good Morning, Good Habits Routine

Before I get started, I just want to say that this is a ‘life project’ that I’m still currently working on so it might seem a bit hypocritical of me to write such a post. However, I believe that being open, and writing more about the subject and the lifestyle habits surrounding it, will permit a smoother, positive thought-process that’ll allow me to succeed in the lifestyle that I want. If there’s one thing to know, it’s that practice makes habit. Everyone has habits. Some quite unique, and others which we’re all truly guilty of. What we don’t want is that slump period where your bad habits truly outweigh the good ones – sleeping late, waking up late, no breakfast, meal-skipping, zero exercise…the list goes on. And if you hadn’t noticed, each habit is like a magnet, except it doesn’t attract the opposite! In modern society in particular, I think there is a common excuse to say that we’re too busy to make what is otherwise known as positive change. But if we’re too busy for everything, when …

March in Progress

I am enjoying the pun in the title slightly too much. 😝 Now that we’re in April (!!), I wanted to summarise March almost in diary-form (I say almost since this is a monthly affair, not daily). Did you guess? Today’s tone is more casual and a stream of consciousness. This is in response to my earlier post, Embarking on a Fitter Journey + Why, and will be the first of many. I wasn’t initially going to write progress posts but I think this exercise will benefit me greatly. Sometimes it’s too much to keep up with new changes and habits, so it’s just easier to record it in one place so that I can unravel my thoughts and decide what works, what doesn’t. Also – I figured that being open has helped A LOT in this process so far, so why not continue being open? General Lifestyle I am waking up earlier and have been slowly improving my morning routine which includes making my bed, having a good breakfast, a quick but effective skincare routine. …

Embarking on a Fitter Journey + Why

I initially wanted to call this ‘Embarking on a Fitness Journey’ but I felt that it wasn’t quite technically correct so instead, I’ve slightly altered it to being a fitter journey. There are a couple of reasons for this which will tie in with today’s overall topic: lifestyle and fitness, and why I’ve decided to make the changes I want to make or why I’m even deciding to write about it now. As a side note too, it’s possible that in the next few months, I will not be posting as many beauty-related posts, but instead, swapping them for posts like this since I want to start making fitness my priority. This blog is after all, an embodiment of my current lifestyles, happenings and likes. 🙂 So…what inspired me to embark on a fitter journey? Keep reading! I had an epiphany. That’s really it. I had an epiphany a few weeks ago, during and after my trip to Hong Kong at which point I thought, I really needed to take my fitness seriously. Both diet …

10 Rules: Long-Haul Flights and Traveling

For those of you who don’t know or are new to my blog, I recently went on a 3-week-long vacation to Hong Kong to visit a lot of family, and to in turn, celebrate Chinese New Year. It is not my first time going – I have been countless of times but I am still not perfect in what I pack as much as I have gotten used to long-haul flying and the 3-hour coach journey to and from Heathrow Airport. But this time round, I was happy in a couple of new steps that I took because trust me – I have made so many mistakes before. So here’s me, letting you in on the 10 rules that can help define a comfortable (but not unfashionable) long-haul journey, not just on the plane but when you’re at your far-away destination too. Leggings will be your best friend I know. Such an easy one. But I’m that idiot who prior to this trip, had never worn leggings or athleisure-wear on a plane. From London Heathrow …

Berlin Travel Diary – Potsdam | Day 2

It feels weird to be writing about Germany when I have just come back from Hong Kong. The timeline is therefore not right but oh well, you live you learn, and now I am paying a price for writing an experience that’s no longer as fresh in my mind but still a wonderful memory, so here goes! If you missed my first segment, then you can catch up on it here. In my previous post, I mentioned that we had bought multiple day travel passes for the tube and trains known as the U-Bahn and S-Bahn. These travel passes, which can be bought directly at the airport, are called Berlin WelcomeCard and comes with a free booklet to help you navigate around Berlin. From there, that’s how we knew to come to Potsdam. Potsdam is not central Berlin at all – no, you really have to travel away from Berlin to see some amazing scenic views. In fact, Potsdam is considered another city. I don’t think it took a full hour in total to reach but …
