One of the positive things about being in quarantine is all the "free" time we have. Time that we usually do not have, which means that we know have the time to be crafty, to learn a language, or to just relax.

During this time I've done some sewing, crafting, and used part of my time productively, but one of my issues as a craft person is that I'll often feel overwhelmed with all the craft possibilities out there (looking at you Pinterest). Obviously, I'm not the only person who will feel stressed out or overwhelmed when faced with many options, and so I thought to make compilation/roundup post of some simple DIYs to do during this quarantine period.

How to Stay (Physically) Healthy at Home | Tips + Advice

Friday, May 15, 2020

These last couple of months have certainly been strange and unexpected, and life has not been the same since the virus broke out and we've been pushed in. Time has been really strange lately, we have lots of "free" time but it also feels like time does not exist anymore as all the days no mix into each other.

But one of the things that I have encountered is that is pretty easy to not do anything during this time, which is both good and bad.

Friday, May 8, 2020

Happy May everyone!

Flowers and trees have started to blossom, the weather has warmed up (although as I'm writing this it is lightly snowing!) and we are still in quarantine, but making the best of it. Which in my case is planning the design for my office (well the desk corner in my room).  In this post, I will be sharing the inspiration that I've seen on how to decorate the office and how I used it to design the plan.

Spring Skincare Loves | Review

Wednesday, April 29, 2020

Today I wanted to share some of the skincare products I have been using (and loving) these last couple of months and share my thoughts with you. These are great quality products that will make your skin look fantastic this spring.

On another note, spring has arrived and the snow (finally) melted, but it has been replaced with rain but you know how it goes "April's showers bring May flowers"! Can't wait for all the flowers and trees bloom that it stops raining. Is it raining where you are?

How To Be Mentally Healthy in A Time of Crisis

Monday, March 30, 2020

This past couple of weeks have not been easy and as someone who deals with anxiety, it has been extremely hard. Unless you live on Mars (in which case, congrats on getting away from earth), you've heard of the coronavirus and its effects that have, essentially, put the world on pause. This has caused panic, terror, and anxiety in most of us. It has led to us over-reacting which is not good for our health, physically but mainly in this case mentally.

Blue Striped Cocktail Dress | Sabrina Dress Pattern

Monday, March 9, 2020

For those who do not know, I turned twenty this past July I had planned on making myself a dress for this celebration, but unfortunately didn't finish it until January *whoops!*
To celebrate the beginning of my third decade I had decided to make myself a dress. I had no idea as to what I had in mind but I did know I wanted a poofy-ish skirt with a gathered skirt. Something simple that could be worn to special events.

I found a pattern and set to work. The dress pattern was a bit of a challenge but I loved the end result even though because of procrastination, busyness, and forgetfulness it took me six months to finish!

Why I was Gone for February | life update

Sunday, March 1, 2020

Hi everyone. It feels as if I haven't been here in forever, which is kinda true since the last post was published in mid-January. Little did I know then that I would be taking a break, this is the first time since fall 2018 that I have gone off-grid (ie off my blog) for such a long time.

The truth is...
