Redemption Cupcakes. (i forgot my dad’s birthday)

Remember that time I forgot my dad’s birthday?

Oh right that was two days ago.

So I may have come home from dance on Thursday to my wonderful father making dinner for my mum and I, when my mum said “have you wished your dad happy birthday yet?”

I hadn’t.

Infact, I had completely forgotten! Giftless, cardless, and a horrible daughter, today I set myself on a mission to make it up to him. Okay, that may have overhyped it… just cupcakes guys, no flash mobs or laser light shows.

half moon in manual

 To defend my lack of studying, I’ve been coming up with some jewellery designs over the weekend to make me feel more ‘productive’. Though I didn’t come up with an abundance of designs, it gave me an awesome opportunity to continue practicing  shooting in manual mode on my camera.

World War

It’s amazing that after countless civil wars and even two world wars, the black and white photos of dirty men, homeless children and strewn bodies unrecognisable from other weapon debris that we associate with war can still be seen in living, breathing colour today.

Outfits of the Month- June

Throughout June my life was jam packed with schoolwork, but at the same time each week presented me with an opportunity to celebrate and spend quality time with friends.

4 weeks. 4 parties. 3 outfits + this one.

Let me know if you guys would like to see more fashion related videos or more of anything else!

Much love,


Birthday Outfits

Hey guys, long time no talk!

My friend’s birthday is coming up, so to celebrate my friends and I went out for a classy pizza dinner and a totally un-fancy sleepover. Here’s what we wore that night:

Sorry I haven’t posted for a bit, I’ve been busy finishing up assessments and putting off assessments and spending time with friends 🙂

I hope you’re all pumped for summer/ enjoying the cold (after two years in Singapore, I would kill for weather below 20°… or even just seasons!)

Much love,


“Glacier Point”

Not only can Kinsey perfectly capture moments with people, but she sure as hell has a knack for landscapes.

How she creates such ‘flat’ looking black and white shots while still maintaining a high contrast is beyond me.

Check out the rest of her shots here.
(+ she also makes awesome DIYs!)

you know the drill.

I hope you’ve all been well and had a fantastic May! Mine was filled with growth and journey and I can’t wait to see what June will bring (though I’m simultaneously very sad that we’re pretty much half way into the year and my childhood is continuously coming to an end).

Hope you’re all pumped for the holidays!

Much love,


Pin Up


It’s the end of the year and like every year, we throw out our calendars without a second thought. But have you ever wished some of the art from your calendars could be on your wall for more than a mere month? Well, why not?

Rip or cut the art from your calendar out of the… well.. calendar. Find a suitable frame (mine was a simple A4 sized one from Daiso [$2]) then hang it up!


Calendar art doesn’t fit in the frame? View the next tip!

Fitting Frames


Want to frame something but the frame is just a tad too big? Card will be your saviour.

Cut a piece of card to the size of your frame (use the backboard or glass of the frame as a template). Place the art in the centre of the card and measure how wide the card border will be. Mine measured 2.5 cm in width along the width of the card and 2cm in width along the length of the card. Rule guidelines for the widths of your border then cut using scissors (or a pen knife if you want to preserve the centre of the card). Place your card border in the frame, then place the art in the frame as well. Adjust the art so that it is in the centre of the card border, then put the backboard of the frame back in place + hang.



TIP: the thicker the card, the fancier it’ll look.

Tie Dye Butterflies | Art / Room Deco


Who remembers splotching paint on paper and folding it in half? The colourful symmetrical print was so mesmerising, and probably got me into painting.

And so two or three months ago I relived my childhood and followed the whole paint, fold, unfold method and realised it not only created a blur of colours, but also created some veins in the paint. Immediately, this first thing I thought of was butterflies.
