Recent must-haves this spring.

American Teen, Khalid

There was point in time where this album was ALL I played. I would list my favorite songs but I would just end up listing the whole album. Khalid has absolutely killed me with his voicekhalid

Pair Acne Cream

I have my best friend to thank for introducing me to this product. I don’t actually have acne but had a few pretty bad pimple scars in around March that are now practically gone thanks to this. This stuff gets rid of pimples completely in a day or two and fades pimple/acne scars perfectly. It’s also so affordable and lightweight.

Tobi Haul

Style

Some of the spring/summer stuff I ordered from tobi.com


To be completely honest, all of the things that came were a little big for me (as you can probably see in the pictures). Everything I got was in a size medium, which is what I normally wear so I was kind of bummed when the pieces that came didn’t fit me perfectly haha. Because of this, I highly reccomend checking the measurements and exact sizing before ordering 😉 I still wear all of these pieces and definitely don’t think they’re toooo bad, the service and shipping from tobi was also amazing, so overall, I can definitely reccomend it. Here’s what I got!

Spring Style Inspiration

Inspiration, Style

I can’t put in to words how happy I am that winter is over and that it’s officially Spring, the weather has been amazing in Fukuoka recently because the sun has been shining, and all of the cherry blossom flowers are in bloom (ironic because it’s raining today).

The theme of this season’s style for me is relaxed and basically rocking the style of looking laid back and casual yet still elegant and put together. That sounds pretty hard to fathom but I feel like the pieces I’ve shown here provide some pretty good examples

Happy Spring!!


“Suits” 

Largely inspired by classic pin-striped or silk pajama sets. Wearing PJ’s outside of the house (especially to school) is something that I’m very strangely suuper comfortable and accustomed to doing, and because I actually love the vibe this gives off, I think a lot of things can be paired together so that they give off a similar aesthetic but are a bit more structured and put-together.

I thought denim on denim and wearing double of the same color was the biggest fashion sin ever until very recently. I actually love the way matching sets look with each other (if they are pulled off correctly) and think that there is such a cute vintage look in matching your top with your bottoms.

I haven’t really experimented with denim on denim (yet) but have matched loose black pants with with a loose black top tied into a knot at the bottom with a denim jacket or a long cardigan and love the way it looks.

Papua New Guinea: Doini

Travel

Another spring break, another trip back to my mom’s house here in Papua New Guinea. I’m currently in the capital, Port Moresby and got back from 4 days at Doini Island in Millen Bay Provence yesterday morning. Not even kidding when I say that it was p a r a d i s e. Here’s a summary of my trip in journal entries and pictures. Enjoy!


March 26th 2017 // 12 something pm 

We just got to the beach (Doini Island) via helicopter. It was mesmerizing. I’m gonna go strip then jump straight into the ocean. We’ve got the whole, crystal blue-watered island all to ourselves… there isn’t a single other guest here. I am so at peace and happy.

What’s Up (part 1) – No Motivation & Sleep deprivation

Life

Basically just what’s going on in my life at the moment: How I’ve been dealing with school (IB Y1), working out, early birthday surprises, recklessly cutting my own hair (again!) and some random recent pictures.


Currently: Listening to Saved by Khalid, working on this blog post while I should be writing the essay I have due tomorrow and haven’t started :~)

Okay so first of all, I can’t believe that January is already over and it’s already February! I feel like from this point on the school year just goes by so quickly… At least I hope so, my motivation is non existent right now.

It was Valentines day a few days ago and as usual, I was as single as ever hahahah, it’s fine though, even if I did have a date, I probably wouldn’t even have the time to go out, just felt like any other day to be honest… I did get some surprise chocolate though hehe, like I already mentioned I had this huge essay for English Lit due that my teacher assigned a week earlier along with two other big projects, I literally started writing it at 11 pm the night before it was due. YAY. It actually turned out pretty good in the end though – goes to show that it doesn’t matter when you start as long as you get it done hahahah. Just kidding, sleep, being stress free and ahead of the game feels so much better. I go through phases where I’m just killing it with my organization and responsibilities, but then there’s weeks like last week where I just ate like shit and got nothing done :’). I feel like this is something that all IB students understand. I also just finished my midterms and ohhh god, they were so hard. I legit survived on redbull and coffee.. I needed like a week to recover and catch up from sleep because of them hahah, So glad they’re over.

Home // Heidelberg, Winter 2016

Life, Photography, Travel

Hey! As a lot of you probably know, I spent my winter break in at home in Heidelberg, Germany. Only slightly biased ( 😉 ) but it’s the most beautiful city in the world and I love it with all my heart. If you’re ever in Germany, please go check it out, it’s so underrated, and I promise, you won’t regret it. I wasn’t too lucky with the weather this trip, (hence all of the fog) but I’m still so happy with how these pictures turned out. I’ll link some posts of my previous trips there below.

Here are some very long overdue pictures I took while I was there in December, Enjoy! ❤

January/February Inspiration

Inspiration

In my opinion, January and February are the longest months evverrrrr… Midterms, winter and that time time of the semester where no one has any motivation. It just generally feels like there isn’t much to look forward to. At least February is my birthday month 😉

Anyway, negativity aside, here’s my inspiration for these upcoming months plus some of my favorites/themes-of-the-month written down.

Enjoy!

Christmas with the Barth’s

Life, Travel

Perk of being Eurasian: Celebrating the traditional holidays from both of your cultures. #mixedkidlife


Eid in the summer and Christmas in the winter, and I am DEFINITELY not complaining. I spent Christmas this year with my family in Germany and it was (as usual), filled with presents, good food, family, champaign, smiles, and good conversation. You can read last year’s post here.

So traditionally, I don’t actually really celebrate Christmas. When I’m here, in Heidelberg, however, I go all out. I can confidently say that this year I was part of the Christmas hype and first hand witnessed the stress of Christmas shopping (or in my case creating), decorating the Christmas tree, baking Christmas cookies, and even singing Christmas carols… even though we sounded awful.
