Farewell 2017: New Year, New Me

 I can’t believe 2017 is over! 2017 has been an emotional roller coaster ride. There were many ups and downs. I couldn’t tell you guys how many times I tried to figure out what I want to do with my life and who I want to be. I felt emotionally exhausted from soul-searching. There were lessons learned. I know I do not want to repeat the similar mistakes again. I noticed some friendships grew and some friendship faded. I decided to cut some people off out of my life who I felt were not important to me or relevant.  They showed me their true colors when I needed them. I’ve acknowledge some people were not meant to be in my life forever, however I appreciated every person who came into my life. Every person has brought me a life lesson. 2017 was also about making big decisions. I have figured out what’s important me and learned how vital my future can be for me. I finally know what I want! I will fight for what I want!

I was able find peace with myself after being depressed for about two years. There were a few moments in my life where I had suicidal thoughts. It was scary to admit, however it’s a great thing I never harm myself in anyway. I was able to pull away from my miserable self. I thought I lost myself,  but I never did. I’ve fought through all the drastic changes in my life, which helped shaped me to become the person who I am destine to be.  I was terrified about how my life will never be same again. I know I can be my own worse enemy, which I’ve acknowledge one of my biggest weakness is being a perfectionist. I’m aware that I am human and my life will never be perfect. No matter how much I want it to be!  I can always try my best in whatever I set my mind into. The year of 2018, I’ll continue to enjoy living my life to the fullest. I can do whatever I want since I don’t have a family or children.

In 2017, I’ve grown to be comfortable of being alone. Sometime I don’t need to have company to have fun. I love spending personal time with me, myself and I. Sometime I rather be at home and binged watch on Netflix in my bed whenever I could. I’ve also learn how important self love can impact on my life. In order for me to find internal love and happiness, I have to start taking care of myself first. I am proud for overcoming my struggles. I can see I have became an mature adult. I’ve transformed into a beautiful flower. I am no longer shy or insecure about myself.  I am strong, confident, and beautiful. I know what I want!


2018 will be the year for me. I can feel it! I can’t wait for what the year will bring me! I will never stop learning and improving myself on a daily basis. I will continue finding new ways to appreciate and love myself. I’m looking forward for new opportunities heading toward my direction. I will not give up on what I have. And I will not give up on myself! I will fight, fight, fight!


My New Year Resolutions:

  1. Take better care of myself: both physically and mentally
  2. Focus on what is important to me
  3. Appreciate the little things in my life
  4. Do more, take more initiatives
  5. Connect and network with new bloggers, influencers & artists
  6. Focus on building my brand by working on more collaborations.
  7. Get out of my shell: Don’t be afraid of feeling uncomfortable
  8. Find more ways to make more money
  9. Travel more, try out new things
  10. Have fun and enjoy my life

 My friend Jacob and I decided to do a fun collaboration a few months ago. We put together a beautiful Fall photoshoot. Jacob did an awesome job creating the short video clip from the photoshoot. The video is posted below. Jacob is very talented at what he does. He is a great photographer and videopgrapher. I always enjoy working with Jacob. All of the pictures came out beautiful. He was able to captured a different side of me, which I never noticed before. It is an incredible feeling to feel care-free and happy again. It is refreshing for me to feel this way!  It is pretty awesome how Jacob was able to capture the feelings I’ve had that day.


This video represent maturity, self love and moving forward with my life. I hope you all can relate to my stories in some ways. I hope you guys enjoy watching this short clip.

I decided to join the Connecticut Bloggers Collective group {CTbloggerbabes}. This group gives me the opportunity to meet and network with various bloggers and talents throughout Connecticut.  Last Sunday I was fortunate to be invited  to the “Sip and Shop” blogger event, hosted by Pearls and Plaid. This was my first time attending to this type of networking events  specifically for bloggers. I had an amazing time. I  didn’t want to leave. Pearls and Plaid is a small boutique in Old Saybrooke, CT. The boutique was super cute and cozy. I spend way too much money!! But don’t you worry I will come back soon!

New Changes in my life! Plus I got promoted!


Hello everyone!

Fall is finally here! It’s the seasons of layering.  I’m sorry I haven’t been posting as much lately. I’ve been super busy. I have experienced many changes in my life within the last two months. My sister got engaged and I got promoted!




My sister recently got engaged! I am so happy for my sister and my brother-in-law  to be. I’ve been helping them plan their wedding. And don’t worry I’ll definitely  write posts later on this year about all the wedding details and planning from venues, color schemes, the food tasting, all of the DIY projects, and etc.



Another recent change that had occurred was I got promoted . In the last two weeks I’ve been adjusting into my new role as  an assistant manager at work. I am the new assistant manager for the Individualist, Via.C, & Encore department ( women’s apparels) at Nordstrom Westfarms in Connecticut.

I was a regular salesperson in the Men’s department. There wasn’t any growth opportunity for me to move up.  Everything seemed simple. The responsibilities and tasks were pretty easy to juggle with. I desperately needed change! I wanted to challenge myself to take on more responsibilities.

 I’m looking forward to be working in women’s apparels! I’m very excited! It will be a whole new world for me since I’ll be working with more women. Which I don’t mind it at all, I love a great challenging experience! I believe I will be a good leade and role model for my team. I just have to remember to be good to myself 😊.

Floral Print Jumpsuit


I never thought I could ever pull off wearing a jumpsuit. I’m only 5 feet tall! Like I said I never thought I could wear jumpsuits because I was afraid I was too short to wear these attires. Until now….Thank you for cropped jumpsuits!!! The lengths fits perfectly on me! (Yes I know I can shorten the pants length to make them cropped but I’m too lazy…) haha


(Style by me)

I found this gorgeous floral print jumpsuit at Marshalls. I love the flower patterns and the bright pink accent on this garment! It’s too cute!! Guess how much I bought them for?!?!!! This cost only $19.99!!! I want more of these jumpsuits! I’m  telling you guys Marshalls always have major deals, including on designers!!!  I’m pretty sure it’s not going to be my last trip to Marshall for this summer. It’s only the beginning. I can tell you all that I received many compliments when I  wore this jumpsuit to work.

12 Things You Didn’t know about Me…


I’m left handed and I’m double jointed

I hate broken promises…

I don’t like it when people who lie or try to deceive me for their advantage.

I love food… I still don’t know what is my favorite food. I still can’t make up my mind

I can beat anyone in a belching contest.. All I need is a can of soda 😂

I do not take confrontations well because I am very defensive with myself. Why you ask? Because growing up I was bullied…

I have many insecurities about myself sometimes I keep it in.

I do not share or express my emotions well. I tend to bottled everything in until I explode.

I love doing spontaneous things and adventures because I believe life is too short. I like to live in the moment, which sometimes can lead to consequences….(Yikes)

Sometimes I wish my mouth has a filter…because I tend to say what ever comes out of my mouth before thinking about it. I can’t help it, I’m very honest. ( so if I ever hurt anyones’ feeling with my words… I’m sorry I don’t mine to 😞

I hate the sound of crunching styrofoams and the sound of fork scratching on a plate.

I’m afraid of failures.

Say “Yes to Gucci!!”

Today was my day off, so I decided to stop by at  Nordstrom Rack today…I was supposed to go find a present for my dad for Father’s Day. Of course I had to stop at the Designer Sunglasses section.. I couldn’t resist!! I was searching through the tower of sunglasses and I found these beautiful pair of Gucci Sunglasses!

These glasses fit my face perfectly! I couldn’t put the shades down. Plus since I work at Nordstrom, I get extra discount on top of the sales price! ( I guess there are some perks working at Nordiee) LOL hehe….  I also asked a few of my friends for their opinions, they convinced me to buy the sunglasses! One of my friend, Sely said “Yasssss!! You look like a rich b*#$H” (of course I laughed) I bought the Gucci sunglasses for $95!!!
