My First Designer Purchase: Prada Pattina Leather Cross-Body Bag

Saturday, March 16, 2019

Hi everyone! I'm currently writing this in a cafe, eating a pineapple bun with butter and drinking a HK milk tea. If you know, you know. ;)

Today I wanted to share about how I decided to purchase my first designer bag: the Prada Pattina Leather Cross-Body Bag!


It's important to think about why you want to make a luxury purchase because it's not a small amount of money going towards it!
I'm not the type of person to splurge on luxury purchases simply because I want them. I'm happy to look at photos online and daydream about them haha. I wanted to purchase a bag this time because:
1. I've reached a point in my life that I can afford a purchase like this with my own earnings.
2. I wanted to commemorate a milestone and some life changes that were important to me.

My Ombre Powder Brows Experience

Saturday, March 9, 2019

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a great week! I just finished my first week of training at my new job, and it has been good. :)

Today I want to share with you my experience getting ombre powder brows! Many of you have asked about my thoughts and what the process is like, so I'll share all of that today.


What are ombre powder brows?

Ombre powder brows is a semi-permanent brow tattoo procedure that mimics the look of soft, filled in powdered brows. It is different from microblading as it doesn't go as deep into the skin (less invasive), the healing is inconspicuous, and the brow expert isn't drawing hair-like strokes. This technique can give a look as natural or as bold as you would like. The procedure is also ideal for all skin types, especially oily skin.

Where did I get my ombre powder brows done?

I got my brows done with Angie of Hello Gorgeous Studios (you can check out her extensive Instagram portfolio here!). She is based in the North York/Toronto area. Angie is very friendly and is passionate about her work. She currently does ombre powder brows, microblading, and lash extensions. She gets booked up super fast so you need to secure your appointment as soon as you plan on getting something done! All her pricing is listed on her Instagram account. The cost that I paid for her service includes the ombre brows procedure and the initial touch-up 4-8 weeks after. 

Wedding Wednesday: Our Wedding Photos

Wednesday, March 6, 2019

Hello! C and I are almost five months into our married life and it is indeed an adventure full of ups and downs. I still like to go through our wedding photos to reminisce on that special day. It is true that your wedding day will seem like a blur and pass by in the blink of an eye, so looking at the photos really help me remember all the moments. Our photos were taken by Toronto-based photographer Cari Zhu. Enjoy!
