Compact & Mobile PC Setup! ♡

Quite happy with my little setup! I was able to find a cute mobile desk to fill in the awkward space beside my bed. The only compromise I have is I won't be able to open the door completely, but then, even without the desk, I was never able to do that because my bed is in the way :p

This setup was built around gaming/entertainment with limited space in mind. Aside from the desk, the laptop and iPad stand really changed the game. I'm able to draw better and my posture is a bit better now to thanks to the height they added. I treated myself to my first mechanical keyboard and MMO mouse too! (If I can be bothered, might do a review for these)

Now all I need is to find the perfect stool/small chair that has good back support. I'm also saving up for the Razer Core and graphics card. It won't be anytime soon but I'm hopeful!

For a breakdown of my setup, price, and where I got them: I've made a Pinterest board here.

Laneige Favourites

Hello~ It's been quite a while, but I'm back with two products I absolutely adore. For a year now I've been using Laneige BB cream and I absolutely love it, so it only makes sense that I try to use more of their products.

I got these from beautylicious.ph They are based in Philippines and offers wide selection of US/Korean brand products. Recently they also offer cash on delivery for local orders, so that's really convenient! Shipping to London is standard 3 weeks but with such a lovely customer service, I didn't hesitate to order from them. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask ✦✦✦✦/5
I'm a huge fan of over night moisturisers. When my Tony Moly Water Bomb ran out, I had to find a replacement quick and this didn't disappoint! You receive a spatula when you buy one and it really spreads densely even with little amount. The only down side I can think of is that it doesn't dry that quickly. But then again, it depends how much product you spoil your skin in. Been using this for more than a month now and can truly say I never had any problems at all. I'm a very low maintenance girl when it comes to skin care, it doesn't take much to make me happy but using this totally set up my standards higher. Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar ✦✦✦/5
This one, I'm not much of a fan but it's not quite bad. I guess my taste just changed as I continue to explore what suits me or what doesn't. I like gradient style lips but recently I've been more into embracing full lips. So I prefer mattes than glossy. I do find that you can build up this product though they transfer quite easily on mugs, food, fabric, etc. With my current style I had to use them as full lip colour rather than gradient, it's not that bad but not my cup of tea anymore. I would say though they are true to their shade. And with two colours included in one, gives you more opportunity to experiment with looks, blending, and what not~ Overall I'm really pleased with these two products and I'm definitely looking into trying out more Laneige skin care in the future. I actually just ran out of the BB cream and will be repurchasing again this pay day haha.

Anyway, please don't forget to check out Beautylicious.ph especially if you're from Philippines! Honestly couldn't be more satisfied with their customer service. Much love!

Disclaimer: products reviewed here are bought using my own money and reviews are my honest opinion about them. Thought I should put this here because I haven't reviewed any products for a long time~

RomaPri

One of my favourite sites to stalk lately is RomaPri.com (Romantic Princess)💕 They are Japanese website that sells interiors geared for feminine ladies (also for select gents!). And because they cater to small apartments, their items are minimalist, space saving, and very functional. Not to mention super cute! Here are some items I wish I could just order up online from them!
Bunny Floor Chair

PC Low Desk

Glass Rose Lamp

Antique PC Desk
Truth be told, I'd definitely buy everything from their store if I had the space and money. I have narrowed my list to the selection above as I couldn't find anything similar here in UK. Maybe one day I will find a way.✉

Do you like decorating your room or place?
Where do you get your interior inspirations and furnitures?

Haul: ZenMarket

Hello! Yesterday I was finally able to receive my order from ZenMarket. Really excited because this is my first heavy-ish purchase from them! They are really useful as a one-stop-shop for everything you want to buy from Japan.

I have tried their service before, so this is actually my 2nd time. My first time was a really good one, so I came back! There are tons of Japanese shopping services out there but I chose ZenMarket due to the user-friendly website, their payment process, customer service response time, and of course the relatively cheap charge per item.

Razer Blade Stealth

Please meet Shiroe, my new laptop! Thanks to my bonus I was able to afford an upgrade! I also went back to Microsoft after using Macbook for what 3-4 years? A lot of research went into this and I settled for a Razer Blade Stealth. I honestly don't regret it. It's visually appealling and packed with beast features!

I'm usually a fan of 2nd hand gadgets but I went all out on this one! I deserve it and I do look forward to streaming games or being just an absolute content creator with whatever pops in my silly head. lol.
I do plan on getting an iPad Pro (2nd hand for sure this time) so I can finally draw digitally. I never persevered with the traditional Wacom tablet unfortunately.

I dipped in to my savings haha but I will do my best to maximise the use! Please look forward to my future contents! I'm really excited and I've never been so productive. It's good to keep busy.

A Nightingale's Lullaby

Blouse: Depop// Pinafore: Kamiseta// Tights: Yesstyle// Socks: Tutuana// Shoes: Birkenstock

I've been improving my room a lot lately and it makes me feel like my life and hard work is paying off. I'm trying to be as productive as I can to distract myself from sad thoughts. I still mourn about the break up between me and Adam. I can't wait till it's only a distant memory and I can finally smile without any hint of bitterness.

In any case, my style is continuously evolving! I have found convenience in wearing dresses more and more. Especially pinafores. I might even try getting lolita pieces, especially now that I can somehow afford them. I do want to keep them practical and versatile. But we'll see! They are expensive and with my other hobbies (pets, gadgets, interior, etc.) I don't know how to squeeze them in financially lol. But I'm always on the look out for 2nd hands so that should help.

Reflection

Hello, I got a new mirror for my room! I've been putting off buying one since I actually have a fixed mirror already but I never was able to utilise it as it's in such an awkward position. Since it's fixed, I really can't move it around.

I feel like I really pampered myself with this buy, it's been such a struggle for me to take OOTD's for quite sometime now and now that I think about it, I didn't realise how much I needed this for my own happiness. Before I got this, I could not justify spending £80 for it and keep putting it off and tell myself NO YAPO YOU DON'T FUCKING NEED ONE.

Now that I have this though I honestly feel no regrets and doubts. £80 is a lot of money for me, and damn right I worked and slaved hard for every penny. I will buy this mirror again and again without hesitation if need be!

I guess I'm just so angry at myself for suppressing this buy. Haha.
