June Favorites | Life Lately

DSC02380

So yet another month has passed! It feels as if I just wrote my May Favorites last week! Like I been saying these past months, life has literally been so hectic. Both in my personal life and work life.

Thank God that June came with 2 long weekends to relax and unwind! Which makes it a great way to reconnect with family and friends in the sun. Its definitely good balance after a super packed week of gym sessions, meetings, deadlines and of course, blog writing!

I also booked a trip with some of my friends to a destination that I have been dying to visit! Which I will reveal it in the coming months!

Right now, I just want to stay focused on eating healthy, working out, absorbing as much architectural knowledge as I can and just be happy in all aspects in life. I a world full of envy, war and greed, all we need from one another is love, compassion and happiness.

Pinterest Picks | Dining

PP Template

Hey there! Welcome to my second installment of my new monthly segment that are my“Pinterest Picks!”. If you haven’t got the word on this little addition to my blog, check out my first post about this, here! And follow me on Pinterest too! HERE!


This post will be all about the dining room, area or whatever you all call it. But on thing is for sure, is that we all do one thing here and it is EATING! I think a dining space in a home is SO important. It allows families’ to spend time together out of their busy schedules and forces them to sit down and bond. And of course enjoy a good meal together.

I am personally a huge fan of the bohemian/contemporary/earthy design theme. Its easy on the eyes, simple to add in color, whenever and wherever, but also pretty easy to maintain. This design ‘aesthetic’ includes a lot of plants, woody tones and natural material. For example, the photo above shows a hanging hexagonal ceiling lamp in woven rattan and an abaca rug.

Like I said previously, with the use of earthy tones as your base, it is so much easier to add a pop of color whether it be pantone or color blocking-esque. Oh and I love this open concept of a living and dining space. You can tell from the photo above that the space is pretty tiny but they really maximized the space to make everything fit!

This type of dining seating area would work perfectly for long living spaces, plus, I think it would come in useful when you have extra guests coming to stay at your place too! I love the use of the solid would top as a dining table. Its natural form was untouched and the grain is still in good shape! Please also notice how nice the light mustard blends in with the whole set up!

Mixing and matching dining chairs are seriously one of my dining area goals! It makes the dining space feel more laid back and casual. I especially love that the designer in the photo above chose shades of blue and purple to blend in with the light Mahogany finish of the dining table. and the ceiling lamps.

Another key element in a dining space has to definitely be a statement ceiling piece. Preferably something that gives a warm light effect. These lamps can either be semi transparent or something that pins straight down. Find what works best in your space! Although the piece doesn’t have to specifically shout out ‘Notice Me!’, but it has to have certain features in it that make it different for the other pieces in the room.

May Favorites | Moments

LOL…You might have been expecting a makeup favorites. But I honestly can’t get over how great this month has been! No weekends sleeping in or just lazying around! I was so productive and had a social life(surprisingly). So this is me sharing my month, if you guys don’t mind. 😉


This past month has been absolutely hectic! With all my weekends booked and too many deadlines to finish, I would find myself passed out on my bed with not much energy left after a full day of work and such. But I am definitely not complaining! I am SO grateful for everything that I have and all the people I have in my life.

The month started of celebrating my late birthday on Labor Day weekend at the beach or how I would like to call it, #LaborBeyWeekend! with my friends and family, plus we had a Luau night that was Moana themed! I definitely felt that my life came in full circle that night with all my favorite people in 1 room!

I was so lucky this month to have 2 amazing beach weekends(with great weather and company). I got to spend some quality time with some of my family from overseas and just catching up with rest of my family in general. If you can’t tell yet, I love family time!

Then my workmates and I took a weekend trip in the wilderness for our summer outing. I was a little but hesitant at first because I knew that we were going to be roughing it a bit. But I definitely have #NORAGRETS after that weekend. I got to know my workmates more and made some lovely memories with them too!
