Hi loves! 

To give you more context on this post - I was looking back at my old posts and I realized I did a lot of monthly favorites posts last time, so here I am, I will start posting again about the things I love every month, from fashion, beauty, music, anything! So let's start. 


I've been wearing this lilac top a bit too much! You might saw it already in the gram, this is actually a thrifted top - only for $6! It's basically a knit tops in very soft lilac color, it is a buttoned up vintage top and have a loose fit. I love it because it's the kind of knitwear that I can wear in daytime and not being too hot in it. I just love how it falls in my body and how comfy it is. The second item that I've been loving is a necklace from Pomelo. I've been wanting a chain necklace, one that is delicate and not come out too bold, and I was also wanting one that is not too 'gold chain-rapper like' necklace. This necklace is perfect, it is in perfect size, not too small and not too big. And it has kinda soft-matte finishing so it is not very glowing gold. I love how this necklace can compliment my outfit well and still being a statement piece. 


For beauty - I've been sticking to my normal routine so far, especially my skin is getting dry during wfh, so I stick with whatever moisturizes my skin. And this combo of toner from NPure & Moisturizer from Joylab is doing their job well! They keep my skin moisturized without leaving it too oily. The smell also so good and not very strong. 
For fragrance, I've been loving EoS from HMNS. My husband got it for me last month for my birthday, and I've been wearing it ever since. The opening smells will get your attention - it is very warm because they have pink pepper and bergamot in it. And after some times, it dries down to a more soft and warm smells, for me the most dominant smell is vanilla in a very warm feelings. I don't usually love a sweet scent, but this one is not too strong so I can cope with it. It's a perfect scent for day and for night! 


There are couple songs that I've been repeating over and over this month, they are: 


I've been taking my time slow - and getting back on my feet on cooking at home! So I've been loving to watch cooking channels and try to cook some recipes after watching it. I loved Marion's Kitchen channel and also Seonkyoung Longest's channel! They have great recipes, most of them are easy to re-create. Mostly I cooked Asians food at home, but sometimes I also cooked Italian or an easy American breakfast and snacks. Please let me know if you have other recommendation for great cooking channels, I'll be happy to watch them! 

So that's all for March, I'll see you in my next post loves!

Hi, it's been a while.

Okay, where do I start?

It's middle of the day while I type this sentence, and it's been forever since I posted my last post. Turns out it takes me this long to realize that this, writing, chills and relax my mind. So I was thinking to get back into it.

And, where have I been? What am I up to?

It's been some busy months, me - juggling as a mother, as a wife, and as a working woman. But, it's been months full of learning. Learning everything as much as I could, as fast as I could. Well, we moms gotta do what mom gotta do. 2020 has came very, very, hard on me. But, worth it. Now let's start..

Not so baby anymore
So my son is almost 2 years old now! Time flies when you're having fun, and believe me when I say, it's true. It's been 2 amazing years of motherhood, of watching him grows and being with him on each of his milestones. It is a blessed year being his mom, I am so grateful for all the good times.

Learning self-love
I've been hitting high and low during the past few months, especially at work. I was very stressed out and I was not feeling healthy, mentally. Of course it was fun, and I love what I do - but aside, I didn't have enough sleep and I had trouble eating - and there's also tears and anxiety. To put it simple, I didn't live my life as I was supposed to. I don't think the problem is the job, it's just - not a great fit for me anymore. I finally decided to take a little break to give myself a little time, to breathe again and re-gain myself again. It may sounds cliche for some of you, but trust me, it is the opposite for me. I found peace again with myself, I got to do what I've been wanting to do for a while, and I finally be able to enjoy life again. 

So, what's next? 
For now, I will be back online and active - here in my blog. And I have some projects in mind for some contents creations. In the meantime, I will also start to find a new job - one that will let me be me, one that will let me enjoy my life. I really hope it will all go well! 

As much as it was a hard time for me, I can't lie that I have my good times too. I have a lot of helpful friends, I am loved - and I'm enjoying every second I have with my son and my family. That is as much as I can ask for, and I need to be grateful. :)

So - lets be friends again and I'll see you soon in my next post, loves! 

With ❤, Kadya Kei.
