From an awesome primer to an awesome sci-fi-fantasy RPG YouTube series, June brought some great things into my life
and here are ten of them.
A good oversized tee is there for you when you want comfort, style, and comfort.
So much comfort.
Versatile and available at a very good price, this $15 men’s tee has become a beloved closet staple.
To see this shirt in action, make sure you stay tuned over on trf, where some exciting videos styling this shirt are coming your way!
The relaxed fit and light fabric makes these pants appropriate for summer, while the smart colours and striped detail make these pants kick ass in the summer. A perfect crossover of formal and casual, I have gotten so much use out of this pair of wrinkly pants that I almost walked past in store.
It’s grabbing and trying items that you wouldn’t normally pick up that makes shopping far more fun and worthwhile. Occasionally you’ll come across something that you really like, and the fact that it’s different from your existing wardrobe is how your style evolves and becomes more unique.
Our environment can greatly affect how we feel and perform our daily tasks. Sometimes our surroundings can feel dull, falling behind our current passions, pursuits and lacking inspiration.
Giving your space- whether that’s your bedroom, study or living room- a revamp to supply good vibes and healthy inspiration is soothing for the soul (well, once it’s done, anyway).
It all starts with a good foundation. Where your furniture is placed determines the accessibility and available uses for that room. For example, my double bed was taking up 50% of my small Singapore apartment bedroom, so getting a smaller bed opened up the space, allowing me to now practice dance and workout in my room, actually encouraging me to exercise. The newfound open-ness of the space also makes my mind feel free-er, like there’s more room to breathe.
Here are three steps to get the foundation of your room just right:
It is that time of the year when we get bombarded with tests and internals. It also happens to be that time of the year when your Instagram feed is blitzed by whiney teenagers. So, I thought that it was time to share my tips to deal with stress and get work done.
I’m all for paying attention in class, but if my in-class interest is ever beginning to waver, you better hope there isn’t a pen in my hand or else someone’s ’bout to break out the doodles up in this bitch.
Here are a few of my best moments in spontaneous art (and poorest moments classroom performance) from the past year!
It was a sunshiney public holiday, so my family and I decided to hop aboard a ferry and wander the beautiful island of Waiheke.
The large island bursts with artistic flare. Sculptures, art galleries, and paintings are easy to spot around Waiheke amongst bustling cafes and sparkling beaches.
For me, working hard in the gym calls for dubstep, and working on household tasks needs some pop or electronic beats. The work of the mind, however, needs something different.
Whether I’m writing an essay, drawing the graph of a line, reading a book, or simply relaxing, here are my top three playlists to get me in the mood and in the zone:
Artist radio: Vance Joy
On Vance Joy’s Spotify profile ☞ click (…) ☞ start artist radio
Featuring the likes of Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men and Vance Joy himself, this “radio station” is full of indie folk vibes that sooth the soul (and make you question whether you’re listening to happy music or sad). These tunes have a bit more body and jam-factor than the next two playlists, but are still light enough to be able to focus with. (I find, for example, that Sam Smith tracks are too dynamic for studying, despite their chill factor).
We all know what it’s like to wake up craving a quick, cosy, nutritious and yummy breakfast while being too tired (and lazy) to make pancakes, fry an egg or even put bread in the toaster. On those days, I do one of three things:
- Eat Weet-Bix Bites out of the box,
- Chuck granola, frozen fruit and milk into a bowl, or
- Go back to bed.
no, I’m not going to write a post about my adventures waking up and immediately resuming my slumber.
The combo of crunchy granola, ice cold milk, and the flavour bursts/ice cubes that are frozen fruits is a healthy and delicious meal/snack that can be put together by simply dumping everything into a bowl and enjoying. This fast and filling breakfast is perfect for both a calm morning on the couch with a book, and a hectic morning trying to rush out the door.
