A Photo Diary | Semana Santa “Holy Week”

This is an “I am so sorry I haven’t drafted a blog post for this day” type of post. Due to the lack of internet resources last week, I wasn’t able to write up a blog post for you guys.

I hope this could suffice though.

I have plenty of favorite things in my life at the moment. But something that I think I will never get sick of, are sunsets. Each different in its own way. But equally beautiful in its own way. Sunsets remind me that everyday is another chance to mend bridges, build meaning relationships with one another and more chances to make a difference tomorrow.

Here are a few photos that I took in my little slice of heaven on earth.


I will be posting a bunch of my photos over on my Instagram account. So follow me to see them when I put them up!!

How To Be Present In Your Friendships


Make one-on-one plans

Although it is always fun to meet friends in big groups or parties. But to be honest, the best time is time spent with just one other person. Crowds are good to make connections  but the real conversation lies in the engaging one on one conversations. You have different friends for different reasons, whether it be a shoulder to cry-on, a positive voice to push you further or a fun and spontaneous girlfriend. The intimate experiences are what count the most!

Send each other letters

I have been practicing this regularly when I travel, I always make it a point to send my friends postcards with meaning messages attached to it! I just love the idea of sending snail mail to a friend or a significant other. I see so much chivalry in it.

Remember important dates

Remembering birthdays is a clear requirement in every friendship. But remembering the day of their first job, the day they graduated or the day of their job promotion will strengthen your relationship. Acknowledging each other’s milestones is one, celebrating it is another.


Kick jealousy out the door

Being a yuppie(young professional), struggling to make our mark in the world; seeing others be successful in their field can get a little disheartening, especially when you are busting your ass but getting nothing out of it. Always offer your genuine excitement and support, so when the tables are turned, your friend will be there for you.

Constantly stay in touch

Staying in touch with your best friends can be tough, even with a 50 hour work week. But it is always important to reach out and let your friends know that you are thinking about them. Scheduling dinner dates or quick lunch break catch ups are great pick me ups during the work week. As for long distance friendships, planning skype or facetime dates are always a great option(oh technology!).

My Favorite Bags At The Moment


I am not one to buy a bunch of useless things(unless its makeup) and just leave it to rot in my closet or to absolutely splurge on branded items that will leave me broke af. When I buy something, I usually wear it to death until someone tells me that I look homeless. So when I say I have been using these babies, I definitely have!



Three Perspectives Tote Bag in Camel

I coincidentally found this baby when my mom mentioned that her friend’s daughter just started a new business venture on leather bags! And just in the knick of time, I actually needed one because my previous one snapped(it actually did though). This is a simple tote bag that is made in Italy with real Italian leather, yes, it comes with that rustic leather smell as well.




Light Blue Tote Bag

I actually found this in a market back in Sydney(Glebe Market). This is where my less is more aura came rushing in. I instantly feel in love with the color of the tote bag. I didn’t care how simplistic the design was or that it was a little bit pricey(tru though). I just loved the light blue shade and how ‘easy’ it looked like.



Fjallraven Kanken Classic Backpack in Dark Green

I know I have said this quite a lot on the blog already but… I had been eyeing this baby since early this year and when I saw it in a shop in Melbourne, I just had to have it. I know this bag may look like a fad to some just because the whole world seems to wear it. But to be honest, I bought it because it looks easy and functional. 

I like that it isn’t too big to make you put your whole room in a bag but isn’t too small to not fit a laptop. I use this bag on the daily. It’s by gym, adventure and shopping bag. It was quite the dilemma when picking out this shade(because I wanted all of them) but I choose this dark green shade because I felt that it was versatile for everyday use and I thought it would look great even if it was worn and faded.
