All in all essentials


With the mixture of trends and just plain old growing up, it’s funny how we went from carrying around our entire life in an over-sized purse to carrying a small barely-fits-all kind now. Just the thought and looking back on those times of lugging around a huge bag on my shoulder around the city makes me cringe deep into the ground. As I’ve gotten much wiser, living and having things within my needs has been a top priority. I’m sure you’re all aware now of minimalism — I do believe that not everyone can or should have to follow a strict minimalist lifestyle, but rather have elements of it incorporated daily.

Eat, pray, love & read


As most people grew their interest of reading books at an early age, I only started to really enjoy it going into adulthood. Whether you’re picking up a book to let your imagination soar, or are learning about something new and of value to you, reading is a wonderful essential to add into your daily life. Personally, it’s one of the most therapeutic and relaxing moments in my day. From travel, relationships, and various self-help books — these are some of my more recent reads. Read more »

Stocking stuffers

Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner?! Perhaps you’re finished with all your shopping or are still needing to get in those last minute items – since most of the best gifts I’ve given or received came in small packages, stocking stuffers are my favourite part of holiday shopping.

Confidence crushers

It’s very rare to go through life completely confident. Even if it doesn’t seem like it, everyone has worries and insecurities – nor do we all know how to handle these things well either. Personally, when I start to feel anxious or self-conscious, I try to gather my thoughts to what could be the cause.

Holiday shopping in

It’s holiday season and if you’re like me, you would rather avoid the chaos at the malls and the interaction with sales associates telling you that if you buy one you get the second one half price. For many of us, online shopping has become our best friend and also our worst enemy – but we still love it! With Black Friday and Cyber Monday coming up, I thought I would list down some of my favourites to shop for gift giving.
