Feeling Comfortable in Your Own Skin

Let's face it, so many women struggle with the feeling of being comfortable in their own skin and body. Constantly striving to meet the "perfect" and "goal" body we saw on models or on social media. The truth is, we are all only human, we all have flaws and that is okay! We have days that we eat 100 cheat meals in a day and having bad cravings for chocolate or in my case, bubble tea. Sharing a little story of mine with you, two years ago after finishing up my first year of University, I realized the saying of "Freshman 15" was not a lie. I was at my heaviest weight of 150 pounds or 68kg. Which is considered slightly overweight for a girl that is 5'5. Yes, this is when I became super self conscious over everything I wear and eat, I was scared that people will judge me for being a "big" girl. I have already developed bad eating habits, it was so hard for me to eat less. I tried out many different styles of dieting and spending hours in the …

All Tied up

Introducing newest trend for this season: Tie at the waist. In the last couple weeks, blazers, dresses and coats with tie at the waist is trending at every stores. I am in love with this new trend. The tie sits at the perfect spot on your waist, it slim down your torso and lengthen your lower body. Guilty to say, but I just "stocked up" on this style of pieces in various colour and styles.. But I love this piece from Le Chateau, loving the contrast of white and black outline, I have not yet come across anything like this at another store. Many of you may think this outfit might be a little "Too business formal", but I personally think this business look have been really trending on the runways and fast fashion stores. Even the matching suit look is making a huge back this season. So this somewhat formal blazer is not that formal after all. I dressed down this look pairing up with a slightly wider leg trousers and some slip-on loafers from Le Chateau.  As much as I…

Don't let fear, kill your growth

Two of my greatest fears are wearing colours and failures. You can probably tell already, I get uncomfortable wearing colours beside my monochromatic and neutral palettes. I am slowly stepping out of my comfort zone, challenging to try new colour palettes. It is all about:  "Get comfortable with the uncomfortable. Get confident being uncertain. Don't give up because something is hard, pushing through challenges is what makes you grow." I have selected this easy spring blush colour to pair with white, the combination of these two colour creates a soft look. The idea of being fashionable does not necessary means wearing black and white. I think being fashionable means being able to rock any colours, whether its pink, red or green.  This reminds of my second fear, the fear of failures. Often, we are not fear of changes, but we are fear of the unknown. 3 years ago, I gave up chasing my parents' career goal for me to become a doctor, after dedicating most of my years specializin…

Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Nano & Small Review

Size: Nano Hardware: Silver Material: Grained calfskin Size Dimension: 8.75"x7"x4" Price: $2,585 CAD (+taxes) Interior: Tonal suede, no additional zipper/pocket Yes, I recently purchased the classic Saint Laurent Sac De Jour in the Nano size, I absolutely love it and used it way too often maybe. This is the black with silver hardware as well as in the material of pebbled grained calfskin. It come with detachable strap with lanyard clasp fastening. When I was purchasing the bag, I was deciding between the baby or nano size for a very long time. I like how the baby size have a zipper pocket inside, but the nano does not. But the reason why I went for the nano is because I like to wear most of bag cross body, just a lot easier to get around the city. The baby size looks very awkward and big on my body when I wear it cross body. Despite the cons of not having a zipper inside, I have no issue with it. Also, when you look at the nano, you probably think it will fit nothing. Nope, y…

"One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure"

As a fashion blogger, following up with trends and styles every season, my closet only gets bigger and bigger, accumulating all kind of pieces. Super guilty of having a closet space covering up 75% of my bedroom, this is why I should start downsizing my closet or dedicating one room for my closet space. Realistically, there are pieces in my closet that I have not worn or touch in the last couple years. I have been constantly gravities towards new trendy pieces, since these piece are more purchasable and readily available online and in stores. Sometimes, it is good to let things go.  The idea of "One man's trash is another man's treasure. " There is no point of having pieces in my closet and knowingly that I will never wear them ever again, instead of collecting dust in my closet, it can be someone else's treasure and gold, putting more use and wear into these pieces. I am not saying these pieces are "trash", I love everything I own in my closet, especial…

Always on the Run

February is full of hustles, although it is only two days shorter than any other months.. At this point, there is only a week and half left of February. I started to realize that I am already feeling burned out... I've been put too much stress and worries in my head during the last month of 2018.  As much as I love to be always on the run and hustle, I love being a on top of what I do and being independent. There is nothing wrong with having a standards and expectations for what you do, but do not over work yourself. It is good to have time for yourself and stand back when its needed. I realized that I was too focus on keeping myself busy and occupied with work opportunities, not appreciating small little opportunities and tiny accomplishments. Funny story, I was catching up with an very old friend of mine from almost 10 years ago, she told me "I am very proud of you, you've came a very long to build who are today, you came from the bottom with nothing, your hustle inspire…
