Travelling is fun, everyone loves it. However, there are certain situations that can arise that you never considered- even the minor things! I travelled for nearly a whole month straight to different places and only brought a carry on. The space was limited, but it fit the travel essentials I needed and used during the trip. So here’s a list of things I carry and have learned to bring next time I go pack to travel.
We all know I enjoy playing games. When I really like a game and enjoy the aesthetics of it, I can’t help but craft things in real life inspired by in game graphics. If I really love what’s on my screen and it makes me happy to log in, I want to translate that happiness to real life in any way I can. Following up from my Warframe Kubrodon and Vindictus Gnoll plushies, I decided to finally release the patterns for my Warframe Bolarola floof plushie. Some links in this post may contain affiliate links. With no additional cost to […]
Vindictus (마비노기 영웅전) is a Korean f2p MMO that I’ll never forget, because it’s the game that Daniel and I met in. If the game never existed, we wouldn’t happily be married today! It’s also the place where I met many amazing friends who are are still friends to this day (5 years later), even after playing different games. To one of my special friends, I decided to make his beloved snow white gnoll ‘Pancake’, which is also a favourite of another friend’s. The Vindictus gnoll when I played about 3 years ago, had 3 varieties: white, black, and red. […]
Venice is a beautiful city that is on many peoples’ ‘must visit’ or bucket lists. There are plenty of beautiful pastel buildings, gondolas, water canals, cultural treats, and history in that tiny location. Daniel and I visited recently for the first time, and we compiled a list of things you should know and expect before booking and visiting Venice based on our own personal experiences.
Texas Tech University is not only home to the Matador, but also a central location in Lubbock full of majestic and classy looking buildings. I’ve been living in an Apartment right beside Texas Tech for a few years now, so I know all the best and secret spots you’d never think to look on campus for the best photos.
One of my recent favourite games to play with Daniel is Warframe. I’m not usually into sci-fi looking games, but the variety of gameplay and literally endless content was what got me hooked. They then released Fortuna, their second ‘open world’, and out came the floofs! I instantly fell in love with the Kubrodon floof and decided I had to have one in real life, so I DIY-ed it.
Being in a long distance relationship is tough. Not only do you lack the joy of just having your significant other with you, but you have to compensate and find other ways of communication and entertainment that you can’t do in person. You can’t just go to the movies or sit on the couch with each other watching TV. You can’t go on cute dates or go travelling together. You can’t stay at home and cook together. At least not while you two are apart. Long distance relationships are hard to keep up and I find that that take a […]
Believe it or not, this makeup remover really is reuseable and cheap. It almost sounds too good to be true and I too was skeptical about the whole idea of it. And to be honest, this has changed my life and I’m never going back. I no longer use any of my old makeup removers. And yes, that include those convenient makeup removing wipes and my beloved Biotherm Balm-to-Oil Cleanser. Want to know what this holy reuseable makeup remover is? Well I’ll tell you.
Tacos and burritos can be messy and a headache if you’re hosting a party for people. They fall, they break, they get soggy, they crumble everywhere. Trust me, I know because I love me a good home made taco. So to get over those struggles, here’s some taco hacks I’ve come by:
The mermaid and unicorn trend have been taking the internet by storm. People have begun making mermaid themed things ranging from food to clothing. Something about the beautiful mix of colours and iridescent details brings these mermaid things to life. One of the more popular and new items that have been introduced is mermaid toast. There’s no surprise to why this one creation has caught so much attention, it’s so elegant and beautiful! So I decided I’m going to take the challenge and create mermaid toast!
I love vegan food because it’s so versatile, healthy, makes you feel good, and aesthetically pleasing. I partnered up with Old El Paso to try my hand at making some vegan taco fillings because you can never have enough taco recipes! I’m actually so excited for this collaboration because I’ve always ran to Old El Paso for taco night supplies, haha. So, after many trial and errors, I have 3 recipes to share made out of: lentils, rice, and cauliflower. If you want a video, I’ll have it linked at the bottom of this post.
I’m sure you’ve heard about bloggers and Youtubers raving about Acai bowls. I’ve wanted to try it for a long time, but I’ve been holding back because I figured it was generally the same as what I make myself for breakfast sometimes. But since it’s close to where I live, it seemed appropriate to try it out and see if it actually tastes good or if people are just saying it’s “good” because it’s a superfood. I got to find out the truth behind Acai bowls.
I was in quite the dire situation with little to no food in the fridge and pantry. I wasn’t going to be grocery shopping anytime soon, so I needed quick meal I could make out of what I had on hand. And of course, the one thing that you can depend on is rice balls or onigiri. Onigiri are rice balls formed into either spherical or triangular shapes and wrapped with nori. I obviously didn’t have the traditional ingredients like sticky rice or nori, so I altered the recipes quite a bit. After making onigiri, I have come to learn that it […]
I checked out Colette Grand Cafe in Toronto to see if it matches up with the reputation it has on Instagram. Is it as good as it seems online on Instagram? On Instagram, when you look up Colette, you see beautiful, bright, delicious foods with instagram-worthy backdrops and floor-drops for photos. Many bloggers and Instagramers visit the cafe to get professional looking photos without trying too hard. My friend Linda had her birthday shoot here, so it was a great chance for Esther, Linda, and I to check out how the place really looked and how the food tasted.
Not too long ago, I had the pleasure of attending the KISS Fall and Holiday 2016 Collection. It was a pleasant experience at Delysees in Toronto. I have always heard of Delysees and seen many of the delicious pictures, but I had never been there. Being a girl close to Toronto, but still quite the commute away, it’s hard to drag me down there just for food. However, I finally got the chance to try it today! I had the vanilla eclair and it tastes sweet but light. They also offered wine for the guests and thai rolled ice cream! […]
