The Sunday Catch-Up #5 | Getting Back on Track

I don’t think I’ve seen my drafts box quite so low before! I don’t know if that’s necessarily a good thing or not but I’ve been clearing some of the old drafts and finally posting them so there’s that. Speaking of old, last time I wrote a post in this series was back in June and holding that thought just for a minute, I definitely think I need to do more posts like this that sprout from a stream of consciousness. There’s just something about writing what’s on your mind, in that moment, that makes me feel calm and present. Here are some of the things that have been lurking in my mind recently: New Content and Discussions Blogging has been quite stop/start for me in the latter half of 2018 but you’ll be seeing more of me soon as I aim to really discuss some new topics and let my eponymous blog grow to the potential that I want it to. I don’t mean it in a fancy way either – think of it …

March Monthly Favourites | 2019

I am extremely happy to show you the Favourites that I have compiled for this March! It’s not often that I don’t have a beauty favourite to share – in fact, this might be a first – but since I had so many other favourites, it’s probably for the best (although purely coincidental). Some of it is going to be very random but I feel that’s what makes Favourites fun because certain items get honourable mentions and help define a moment in your life. Let’s get started shall we? Featured in this post: NETFLIX:Queer Eye (Season 3)Selling SunsetTerrace House: Boys & Girls in the City OTHER:Happy Glass (game)Stop Stealing Dreams – Seth Godin (A manifesto available on Medium – please read)BeautyPlus Netflix I don’t watch as much Netflix as most people because I am trying to enjoy everything I watch in small doses. In other words, I’m restraining myself from binge-watching too much at a time. I don’t know about you but whilst it was good to binge-watch at the beginning, it eventually ruins your …

Berlin Travel Diary – Berlin Wall and Gendarmenmarkt | Day 3

Obviously I didn’t just come back from Berlin. I’m just a horrible human being who posts things super late at times – but because I love sharing, I would like to showcase the remaining photos of my Berlin trip from September 2017. Plus, it’s nice to finish chapters in your life right? This will be the last segment to my Berlin Travel Diary series. I know that I said I went to Berlin for 5 days but I decided to only write about the 3 days in the middle since I am not quite counting the day of arrival or day of departure. (Either days were relatively chilled out although I think I have roughly covered the first day of arrival in my first segment.) In addition, thank you so far for the positive response from my last Berlin post! The comments written were very generous so I guess posting the photographs despite it being months late, was a good idea after all, right? You can catch up with the previous segments in the series …

Setting Up a Good Evening, Good Habits Routine

Following on from my Setting Up a Good Morning, Good Habits Routine, comes along my newly adjusted PM routine! This post will be a little less strict compared to my morning routine but nonetheless, still important since the two go hand-in-hand and can influence each other more than we know. So far, I am finding it a lot easier to adjust my evening routine, possibly because I have certain routines such as my skincare, set in place. The main adjustment I have had to make is essentially shifting everything earlier so that I’m ready for bed by a certain time. Generally speaking, evening routines are a lot more chill than morning routines because there’s less of a rush to get ready! As like the last post, I will be giving some advice on setting up an evening routine. There are tips from that post that practically apply to any habit or lifestyle change, which I won’t repeat here, but feel free to have a look at that too! Why an evening routine? It is common …

I’m Back! + What to Expect When You’re Not Expecting

Hello all! It has been a time. I came back from Hong Kong a few days ago and honestly, it’s a little disappointing to return to weather that hasn’t changed much more than when I left. Even worse – we seem to have hit the rainy and windy season! It’s good for staying indoors though so there’s that. 😛 I’m still a little jet-lagged which is unusual but I really think it’s down to us trying out an earlier flight this time rather than the late one we always take. By the time we officially came back to our home (because we unluckily missed the initial coach by like 5 minutes and had to wait a further 2 hours for the next one AND pay for new tickets), it was 03:30. I ended up eating 3 meals after that, watched a film in-between at some point and finally crashed at 20:00. Some of you may have been following my Instagram Stories or may have just simply caught up with my latest post and realised that …
