Manifesting My Dream Life 2.0

Manifesting My Dream Life 2.0

I know what you’re thinking – Lizzie, didn’t you already write this post last year? And, well, yes, I did, and it took a lot of back and forth in me deciding whether or not to publish this new post, but the truth is that those goals suited the person I …

Help – I Can’t Live Without Gyaru Makeup

Help – I Can’t Live Without Gyaru Makeup

And in that moment I felt so alive. I turned my face to check if my blusher was visible enough and of even vibrancy on both sides (it definitely was – I might as well have emptied the whole block of colour onto my face) and my eyes occasionally flickered up …

My Love/Hate Relationship with Myself

My Love/Hate Relationship with Myself

Some days my relationship with myself is a good one. Sometimes I love how my eyes aren’t quite that shade of blue but neither are they green; that my legs look as if they are never-ending; and that my ability to pull the most stupid faces brings a smile to my …

Hustle Less, Live More

Hustle Less, Live More

If you said this to me a couple of months ago I would’ve looked at you, gobsmacked in disbelief. Hustle less and live more? Definitely not! I used to believe that good things come out of hard work – and in some instances it is true – but I took it …

6 Months On – Wedding FAQ

6 Months On – Wedding FAQ

Gosh, 6 months already. How and when did that happen? It seemed like only yesterday that I was walking (well, more like marching) down the aisle and became a wife that I can hardly believe I am writing this right now. So much has happened since then… So I’ve decided to …

Mission I’m-Possible: Creating the Life I Love

Mission I’m-Possible: Creating the Life I Love

I’ve never been one of those people who have had yearly goals, let alone 5 year plans, and so I’ve been going about my days without really knowing what I wanted in life. Sure, I listened to an endless amount of podcasts on growing my blog & Etsy store – helloooo …

Proud to be Me

Proud to be Me

The first time I remember experiencing racism was when I was in primary school and my friends were tugging back their eyelids and saying look! They’re now “Chinese“. I didn’t understand at the time and just laughed along. Because they were my friends, they knew I was half Chinese, so they …

Maybe You’re Just Not Good Enough (But That’s Okay)

Maybe You’re Just Not Good Enough (But That’s Okay)

It was the late summer of 2016 when I discovered that there was a thriving blogging community on twitter. I had been blogging for around 6 years by then but yet I felt like such a newbie when I began to have a good look at other blogs outside the ones …

The Art of Letting Go

The Art of Letting Go

Letting go is hard, especially when it comes to the things you love. I still keep all of my old toys from when I was younger because I can’t bear to shove them up into the attic or sell them to another person. I tell myself that my favourite ice-cream flavour …

And, Breathe

And, Breathe

Life passes by so quickly that sometimes it’s nice to just take a step back for a moment, breathe, and then think, “what the hell just happened?!” I was having one of those moments the other day where I was feeling overwhelmed by everything that’s been going on and almost had …
