Ready, Set, Go

So far in 2016 I’ve:

· Sat in a lot of cafes for many hours in front of my laptop (holla @ Presso 🐿)
· Solved all the puzzles in Professor Layton & the Diabolical Box 💯
· Finally read the Kite Runner, which has been on my to read list for years
· Started trimming down my beauty collection by giving a lot of unused stuff away to friends
· Replaced my old chair w/ this cool colored one from Ikea
· Collected 45/49 cats in #NEKOATSUME 🐈

I also started combing through my photo archives so look out for a bunch of posts that are basically “dinner I had that one time back in 2012.” One day I will open Lightroom and there won’t be anything to edit.

Hope your 2016 is going well! I just scored some EXO tickets so I’m pretty psyched, but I need to hustle on my portfolio.

Etude House Collection – Pt. 01

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! 🎄 WHO’S READY FOR SHOPPING. I saw an email in my inbox about Etude House’s 30% off Christmas event and wanted to share some pictures/reviews about some of the Etude House presents I’ve bought myself this year. The event started a few days ago, but lasts until December 27th so make sure you use the code CHRISTMAS2015 to get the discount!

I’ve made 3 Etude House purchases in the last year so I’ve split them up into two posts. Part two should be up in a few hours!

Happy Holidays 🎄

Happy Holidays! I hope you have all been warm & well this holiday season ♡

I wanted to stop by with a quick update before I try to start posting regularly again (did I ever?). Recently I made a decision about the direction that my professional life was taking and even though I wasn’t certain it was the right thing to do at the time, I’m at peace with that decision a month later. At the start of 2015, I told myself that this was going to be the year that I learn to be kind to myself and I tried to remind myself of this every time things got tough. I honestly didn’t do a very good job in the last few months, but ultimately I am very proud to have taken this step that I knew I had to in order to move forward. So here’s to a new year and a fresh start ✨

Wishing you all good health, love, and happiness in 2016.

Chicago (2014) – Pt. 2

I’ve been sitting on these photos for well over a year because I’ve been in a big editing slump, but looking back – they’re not so bad! And better late than never right?
