I’ve caught a cold last week. It wasn’t until I scrambled through my medicine bag to find that all my cold medicine expired in 2016, that I realized I hadn’t gotten sick much in a few years. Whether physical or mental, I don’t always remember or appreciate my own strength. I know I am strong, but it takes discipline, reminders, and seeing myself succeed in specific tasks for me to remember that sometimes. When I was navigating Europe on my first long solo trip, I would sometimes literally say aloud to myself: “I can do anything”. I found the verbal…View Post
I'm not sure if love at first sight is real with people (I'm leaning towards no), but it's definitely real with boots. And fell in love with these white boots I definitely did. I put them together with two different outfits here. The first one is inspired by Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate. It's such a simple outfit but it left an impression on me since I saw the promotional materials for the movie. And I know it's not Halloween but any day is a good day..
“If you only knew how little I know about the things that matter” “What things that matter?” “You know what things.” Anyone who knows me would have spent some time hearing me talk about Call Me By Your Name. These quotes are from one of my favorite scenes in the movie, perhaps because it neatly sums up why I love it so much – it represents a lot of what matter the most to me. This summer, I lived out my dream of being in the world of the movie when I visited Northern Italy, walked the paths of Elio…View Post
A couple months ago I took the plunge and got myself a DSLR, and have been taking some portraits for my friends. I couldn’t decide where to put the pictures – because did I really do it if no one sees it?? (Yes, I did). I thought about starting another Instagram for it, but let’s be honest, spending time on Instagram is just not the healthiest. So for now, here’s a few that I’m proud of from that last few months.View Post
After a train, a plane, another two trains, and a bus that made an unpredictable detour, I made my way from Paris to Florence. I was exhausted, but taken right away by the alleyways and the cafes. If I were still in a bit of daze in Paris, by this point I was starting to discover how liberating solo traveling was, as I kept surprising myself by how effortless it was to live in the moment. My time there seems a little distant now, but a lot of moments still jump out at me and make me feel just as…View Post
The reason I have this blog is simple – I love creating something out of nothing; and everything I make represents how I see things and what I enjoy in a moment in time. It’s almost the four-year anniversary of my blog now, and this project is one of the most special. I spent a couple weeks in my hometown in Beijing in August – the longest time I’ve spent there in about six years. In the last few days, I collaborated with a photographer and took a walk in the area in which I grew up. I’ve moved around…View Post
