我爱我

Some time at the end of last year, my three-hundred-and-something day streak on Duolingo was ruined (I was being lazy, I’ll admit), prompting me to delete the app from my phone out of sheer frustration. As a result, I didn’t practice any Mandarin until COVID-19 turned the world upside down and suddenly everyone who was privileged enough to stay home started competing in the Productivity Olympics. Fast forward to a few months later where I’ve once again fallen off the path leading to the future version of me that’s completely fluent in Mandarin (at least she exists in a parallel universe).

Strike! Ft. Chanel

Last year in December, I lay wide awake at 4am for hours thinking about a video idea that just wouldn’t leave me alone. So I hauled myself out of bed, wrote down all the noise in my head, and sent out a few e-mails to some people who I thought could help manifest my ideas…

February Moon List

I recently discovered Moon Lists – a selection of questions designed to help you look back on a timeframe of your choice. This practice for me has been very cathartic, to say the least. As someone who enjoys setting goals and working towards the future, it’s also important to reflect and look back at what…

Chanel in New York

A few weeks ago when Eric and I were in New York for New Classics‘ biannual buying trip, we had the rare opportunity to intimately preview Chanel’s latest Haute Couture and Métiers D’Art collections. It was almost overwhelming to be surrounded by thousands of hours of craftsmanship — each detail purposefully thought out and manifested…

“Is blogging still relevant in 2020?” This is a thought that goes through every blogger-turn-influencer’s mind as our blogs slowly decay away on the internet and become nothing more than fodder for the Internet Archive whenever we’re feeling nostalgic in ten years. I, in particular, have been thinking about this question a lot for the…

Not That Kind of Acne

There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction you feel when you’ve found that perfect white tee. I’ve searched long and hard, and at last, it’s in my closet (right where it belongs, if I might add). I know most people might find paying over $100 for a t-shirt quite ridiculous, but there is a very noticeable…

The Gardens

Eric and I rarely leave our house, but last night was a beautiful evening. A tad windy, but beautiful nonetheless. We had been invited to visit the new University of Alberta Botanical Gardens a few weeks prior, and without realizing, the night of the unveil snuck up on us. So we changed out of our…

The Future Freaks Me Out

If you’re wondering, yes, this title’s post is a Motion City Soundtrack song. It’s also relevant to what I want to talk about in this post – the freaking future (and how I survived my own after I graduated). The future can be many things – it can be exciting, it can be terrifying, but…
