While our first date may have been like the photo above, today was equally lovely if culturally less high-brow. McDs, furniture shopping, and a lot of gourmet sashimi takeout (plated at home of course with micro basil, served with homemade miso soup and pork chips) make for a splendid last summer Friday. Thanks, T for a great day - IN
A bit of glamour for your Friday, darlings! Isn’t Peony Lim so lovely here? Her dress combines 2 of my loves: fantasy fashion and Ming dynasty ceramics - IN
There is nothing so lovely as the last days of summer: the sky is a perfect shade of blue, the breezes are just right, and the nights are the stuff of swoon-worthy love songs - IN
I started this blog a year ago to document my random musings. Truthfully, it was also a place to catalog all the pretty images I found online.
If you do follow this blog (thank you!), the last few months have been a little too dramatic for my tastes followed by a lot of self-questioning and will need to continue with a lot of honest soul-searching. This time last year, I was still feeling the afterglow of my European getaway and cultivating a tan that could only be described as that perfect shade of glowing. If that sounds vapid, it really wasn’t. The things that I avoided thinking about or indulging in didn’t have a chance before that trip.
That trip was hard to top but going to NYC always brings up other things. If anything, the city will always be a reminder of who I was at 20 and how I envisioned my life now back then. Right now, I am having a Rory-Gilmore-Season-6 moment and it’s going to be awhile before I have my “Rory-returns-to-Yale” moment. I will spare you all from an ever-expanding Gilmore Girls reference where I allude to the corresponding boy/family/career issues.
For now, I am happy that I kept this blog up even though I am having (and bear with me for now) a Rory’s Pink Hair moment - IN
Because I am a student at heart, the first day after Labour Day feels like the beginning of a new year. I have the urge to buy fancy stationery and recreate a home office. The only difference this year is that I am constantly perspiring and the humidity is insane. One of the main reasons that this past summer has been unbearable.
Per usual, I am having a quarter-life crisis. I’m beginning to think that I will send my 20s, essentially in crisis mode. But in any case, I just need to start something. And there really is no better time than the beginning of a new year - IN
What I like to think I look like when I walk down the street in anything minimalist. I can safely say that I have never quite achieved this but a girl can dream - IN
It’s 30 degrees and sunny. Even though I know summer is ending, I’m convinced that the air won’t turn to autumn for awhile. Hope you’re enjoying some more sun-soaked summer days - IN

Have a beautiful Sunday, darlings! - IN
Feeling a bit blah so I’m posting something pretty to look at. Is it too early to open a bottle of cava? Maybe - IN
