Top Stuff: June

Art & Photography, Fashion, Loves

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.

My Everyday Makeup Routine

Fashion

Here is my everyday makeup routine. I don’t wear makeup everyday unless I have extra time in the morning, because I don’t think it is necessary for school. However, I wear this makeup look everyday in the holidays and weekends.

Finding the Furniture Foundation for Your Space

DIY, Life

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:

Classroom Doodles

Art & Photography

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!

Basics of a Realistic Eye

Art & Photography

Ten minutes worth of basic realistic-eye-sketching in three minutes with ten tips to help your own realistic-eye-sketching. [+ woo two videos in a row!]

This quick sketch was done with a cheap and simple black ball-point pen (Stabilo bille 508N) and paper. This isn’t the most complex, accurate or realistic eye, but I wanted to share how fast and simple creating a realistic eye can be if you include the right components, shapes, proportions and shadings.

Top Stuff: December

Fashion, Loves

Some things are just better than others. I found some of those things during the month of December. From slip on shoes to DanAndPhilGames, here they are- in stop motion.

Much love & God bless,

(Pssst; what’s something you found to be particularly above average during the month of December? Also, did you see something you’d like to try?)

Granola & Frozen Berries : Five Second Breakfast

Eats, Loves

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:

  1. Eat Weet-Bix Bites out of the box,
  2. Chuck granola, frozen fruit and milk into a bowl, or
  3. 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.
