Wedding Wednesday: Budgeting Tips

Photo Credit: Cari Zhu Photography (IG: @thecarizhuphoto, website:

It is fun to plan out the details of a wedding, but your vision for it and all the ideas that you want to come alive must be doable within your budget. C and I are funding the wedding ourselves so it was extremely necessary for us to sit down before doing any planning to figure out our wedding budget and potential expenses. It was hard, especially when so many Pinterest pictures and Google searches show beautiful wedding inspiration that may actually cost more than what we expect.

Here are some of my little tips for you, and hopefully it'll help you manage your current or future wedding finances! :)

Autumn OOTD

Life has been busy. Buying my future place with C, wedding planning, and busier work hours has taken its toll on me. I come home tired, ready to crawl into bed. It has really made time pass by so fast, and I can't believe the first potential snowfall is already coming up later this week! I need to get this little autumn OOTD out before the snow hits!

Travel Essentials

 In this last part of my Peru travel series  (sorry for the delay!), I've compiled a list of my essential items that I found super helpful when I was travelling!

Givenchy Noir Interdit Mascara

I was so ready to test this out when it arrived on my doorstep! Thank you Givenchy!

Noir Interdit* is Givenchy's latest mascara release. It has such an interesting design as the wand can bend to a 90 degree angle (the following pic)! The main benefit of the mascara is to help create extreme length, along with buildable volume. It doesn't have a waterproof formula though.

My Travel Skincare & Makeup Bag

It was a spur of the moment decision to make a travel series on the blog ('cause how often will I get to do posts like this? haha). Today's post is on what I brought with me on my trip in my makeup and skincare bag.


For my makeup I brought the minimum, enough to make me look alive and presentable during the day. The few things I fixed up daily are: brows, lashes, under-eye circles, and acne coverup.

Travel To Peru

I haven't been on vacation in over five years, so this trip to Peru was much needed! I travelled with C's family and had a blast (it was also my first trip with C)! Peru has amazing scenery, delicious local foods, and one of the Seven Wonders of the World: Machu Picchu! Here is my photo diary of the trip. :)
