It’s been nearly a month since I last updated this blog. With school, and personal life too, I was extremely busy lately (and I still am) but I couldn’t forgive myself if I let this site perish. I’d like to apologize to my few yet faithful readers (are you still there by the way, you’re… Continue reading Lookbook Series: #3 School or What
It’s Back to School season! Not only for you, but also for me. As explained earlier in my ’20 Facts About Me’ post, I am enrolling in a master in Fashion Marketing – so excited about all the things I am going to learn OTHER than How To Write A Good Memoire. Homework stories aside,… Continue reading 2 Looks For Getting Back To School
The pleasure of old, good, organic cotton. Organic clothing may have been put into the mainstream; it still remains quite difficult to acquire such pieces when you’re on a budget.

I always thought I’d look sad, grumpy or even worse… Continue reading Does ‘Black Look’ Mean ‘Adulthood’?
Another round of HYPER cold days and night is coming. Winter, we call that.
