Happy Sunday Everyone! As July is coming near to an end, I’ve probably done the most planning I’ve ever put myself through in a while in pursuit of making the rest of my summer more memorable than the last. More of which probably won’t begin until the new year. Other than planning outdoor festivities, patio dates and picnics— I’ve opt. for planning out more future design projects to work on. The last two weeks have been terribly nerve wrecking, stressful and somewhat daunting for me, as I had been accepted and planned to move out of Toronto to work abroad for one of my most admired studios. But as time passed, it turned out that home needed me more than I had wanted to chase after another ambitious wish. Keeping a balance between family and work is one thing, but when family calls— home is where it’s at.

I found myself pinching my arm and telling myself that moving forward and planning against my obstacles was the solution. We do what we can and I believe that working hard towards it always works out, one way or another. I’ll eventually get back to accomplishing my wish next time— most likely when I’m a better version of my current self. Until next time!

Hope everyone’s enjoying every second of their summer!

Happy Saturday Everyone! Throw back of my outfit from my trip to San Francisco. Sometimes a simple tunic with a skinny belt does the trick for early mornings when you don’t feel like putting in so much effort in what you’re wearing— especially for those lazy and indulge-in-breakfast days. You can pull out more of the tunic around the belt for some extra room after you’ve eaten and still look put together! I realized I’m wearing RBG colours…get it? #insertsdesignjoke 
Shout out to my J.Crew and ice cream-lovin’ girlfriend Nikki, since it’s her birthday!

Another update from my trip to San Francisco. Walk to Lombard Street and to a secret park for an even higher view of the city. Followed by making a quick stop to Ghirardelli Square to ease the sweet tooth— included indulging in cupcakes, sundaes and chocolate purchases… For dinner, In-and-Out burger combo and clam chowder in Fisherman’s Wharf. For entertainment, went to Musee Mecanique, an antique coin operated arcade in the Fisherman’s Wharf with 1930s to 1950s restored carnival games and an old fashion Indiana Jones-themed pinball machine— the best part about this place was that they also had restored photo booths. I still find photo-booth pictures so ridiculously precious compared to a couple of MB on your smart phones to look at.

Hey guys! Just got back from my trip from San Francisco and have lots to share! I stayed for about a week with a self-made and jam-packed itinerary via Microsoft Excel.

My official day in San Fran (not including my brutal flight with American Airlines..) started with spending the day with my girlfriend, Fiona! Since I was staying around downtown Union Square of SF, I took the Caltrain for my first time down to Mountain View to visit her at the head office of Google. To my surprise when I see her, she greets me with a bag of cookies with my name on it! Haha. She is a super talented designer who is currently interning at Google for the summer and was kind enough to give me a personal and googily tour of the place, accompanied with dinner together…and in between all that, more *healthy* snacks. Horray, for free snacks! Thanks for the sweet and temporarily noogler experience!

PS. We’re also wearing the same Zara skort.

It’s always so intriguing to see how one can work a man’s shirt. And today was just one of those day’s where I managed to borrow one…within reason because of the weather of course! Thinking it was going to be super warm and sunny like yesterday’s golden weather, I was prepared to wear a sleeveless shirt and accordion pleated skirt. Eventually that fell through and a makeshift ensemble was in order with an entire man’s wardrobe at my fingertips and a spare pair of my own jeans for today’s cool day.

Earlier today I got to meet up with the super stylish and lovely, (inside and out!) Therese De Jesus! The force and magic behind Artiese Photography. Although, she was off duty (haha, get it? Courtesy of Zara) we spontaneously decided to take some impromptu photos. Not only does she work the camera, *pun intended* she also has an amazing style and could be her own fashion guru. And that is why we intent to become each other’s photo monkeys. Who needs blogger boyfriends when you have your girlfriends right? 
I can’t wait to share more later on. Happy Wednesday guys!
