Cue Music…”Saying goodbye is never an easy thing…but you never said that you’d stay forever. But if you must go…well darling I’ll set you free…but I know in time, we’ll be together…” Ha! Does anybody remember that song by Taylor Dayne? I used to listen to that music when I got jilted in love in college. Confessions, confessions! But that’s not really what I was singing that for. I’m talking about summer. Yes, I’m pretty sad that we’re halfway in September already and summer is going to be over in a week. While I know it’s always exciting when a new season begins, lots of fun really does happen during summer. Do you agree?
So I’m sharing 5 tips with you on how you can make the best out of the remaining summer days…8 days to be exact.
We’re wrapping up summer real soon and if you don’t know yet, this is the best time to grab some of the summer pieces you’ve been eyeing on because a lot of them are on sale. Though those pieces may be seasonal and you may think it’s useless to buy it now, think again. You can always use these pieces next summer, especially maxi dresses. Maxi dresses never go out on style – they always come back in spring and summer.
So I’ve curated the cutest maxi dresses for you below. A lot of them are below $50 and some are below $100! A 40-50% cut from its original price. Some colors are actually good for fall!
If you’re already shopping for the holidays and you know someone who loves maxis, then check out the below selection!
One Piece Off-Shoulder Suit | Skirt (Currently on sale!) If you’re following me on Instagram and you’ve seen my posts, you know that my husband and I went to San Diego a couple of weeks ago for a quick getaway before summer ends. I have a full San Diego Travel Guide that will be published separately next week but for now I would like to share with you my travel outfits – almost everything is from Revolve. It’s one of…
I must be honest…I was completely lost on what to talk about on this post. I’m honestly done just trying to look pretty without talking valuable stuff that will help my readers. Not that liking clothes and being fashionista is wrong. In fact, I advocate for dressing up well because the way we dress and carry ourselves says a lot about how we see ourselves. I don’t know about you but when I dress well, I feel more confident and I’m able to carry myself better in meeting other people and conversing.
I’m also not saying that I won’t post fashion stuff anymore. I’ve always loved fashion and will always love it.
But this past couple of years, I’ve been on a self-discovery journey. And I did that for myself, for my husband, and for our marriage, as well as for other people. I know that if I’m better and if I’m feeling good about myself, I can give more to my marriage and I can serve people better.
See, there’s a lot of things that go on an daily basis that a lot of times we either just roll with and let slide – events, people, stuff, that make us happy, sad, upset, and we don’t even understand why. Our emotions just flow a lot of times. It’s all good when it’s positive emotions but what about the negative emotions? What frustrates you and why? What upsets you and why? What makes you sad and why? How do you handle them when they come?
School is back and I’m counting the remaining summer days…hoping I can stop the clock because I don’t ever want summer to end. I’m sure many of you disagree, especially those of you who are in scorching heat like us here in Houston, Texas.
While I can take a breather from the heat, I’d still love for it to be summer all year long, like Florida or the Caribbean!
Summer weddings are still on and if you have a wedding coming up in the next few weeks, I know that what to wear to a summer wedding or any season wedding for that matter can be quite challenging. You can’t go wrong with a lace dress though, no matter what season of the wedding you’re going to.
The most common question I get all the time is: How did I start blogging and why?
Seven years ago, around this time, I started this blog during one of the most desperate and depressing moments of my life. I felt lost and I was just looking for something new to do in my life to pick up the pieces of myself again.
Growing up, my mom who is a single parent, owned a made-to-order clothing shop, so I’ve always had a love for fashion. Buying inexpensive but cute clothes became my therapy so my mom encouraged me to start a blog and show how to wear certain pieces and what to wear. Back then, blogging was fairly new and nobody really knew what a fashion blogger does or even what blogging means. Most bloggers were blogging about making money online and not really about fashion, food, lifestyle or travel.

When I first started this blog, I must admit that I really wasn’t clear as to my goal and purpose with it. I really couldn’t even look at the archive of this blog from 7 years ago because I cringe each time I see the photos and think to myself, “What was I thinking?” It was horrible. HAHA! At first, I thought I wanna blog about asian fashion but didn’t quite like the idea in the long run. What’s asian fashion anyways? *Rolls eyes*
I think we’ve all heard this quote: “Be the best version of yourself.”
But have you ever wondered how? Honestly, I have. I have asked myself how can I be the best version of me? After all, that’s where it starts right? You have got to know where you are to know where you want to go. In this case, to know where you want to be or who you want to be.
The past year and a half has been quite a self-discovery for me. Having been married for about the same time now, marriage has taught me to learn more about myself so that I know what I can put in and what I can’t or don’t have to to make my marriage work. This self-discovery is still a work in progress but would like to share some of these tips to become the best version of yourself.
I’m really panicking internally that summer is almost about to be over. Although we have longer warmer days here in Texas, it sure does get cold too.
I’m a winter baby and am not thrilled that my birthday often falls on a cold day or night. I love spring and summer and always likes to keep our house warm during the day which drives my husband crazy because as soon as he walks in the door from work, he sweats. Ha! But 80 degrees and higher is my comfort zone. I know it’s too hot for some but I’d take it anytime over 72 degrees and lower.
But you can’t blame me as well because spring and summer fashion is just too cute! I know fall and winter fashion is great too but let’s be honest…it’s a lot of effort! You have to put on 3-4 layers to feel cozy and warm. But with spring and summer fashion, a lot of times, it’s one or two pieces.
