The Dreaded Tinder Phase


Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”-Rumi
Oh gosh, I don't even know where to begin lol. It's such a cringey phase! Tinder itself is not all that evil. But the kind of person I was while using the app is just sad. So right after my ex left me, I was devastated. I was very confused. I was just a pitiful creature of hate, anger, and loneliness. On the outside I have my shit together, I don't want my family to worry too much. A part of me have accepted that this is just another part of life that everyone goes through and I just wanted to show that I am coping well.

Hello Blog!


Seriously, it's been a while. I got an email the other day from my web hosting provider letting me know that I need to renew my plan. I didn't even think twice but paid it as soon as I can. Only afterwards I thought to myself, "but I haven't updated in ages, do I really want to use this?". Anyhow, this is why I decided to update.
It's crazy how hard to keep maintenance of blog these days thanks to Instagram and Snapchat (and other social networking sites). It just doesn't make sense to blog anymore.

I think the main reason I stopped blogging is that after my break up with my last ex, I just got paranoid about my privacy and kept to myself. I even changed instagram accounts. It's only been four months since my last post but I feel tons have changed about me. Looking back, I do know I've grown so much. I still have the same struggles but I have direction now, and tbh, having direction is the best re-start I could ever ask.

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.

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!

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.
