What is Bento? 🍱

Bento (弁当) comes in endless varieties: some more traditional than some, whereas others take on a fusion theme combining dishes from multiple regions, countries or continents. Within the last decade or so, Bento may have been introduced outside of Japan via popular restaurant chains including ‘Wasabi’ & ‘itsu’. Undeniably, Anime and Japanese Dramas have additionally…

Saudade.

Daydreaming, in nostalgia of those moments we shared. Drifting, as my thoughts wander; retracing the motion of your fingers gliding the waves of my hair. Inherently, in night’s twilight I turn to find your embrace, only to be evoked of your absence. Reminiscent, of the journeys we took arms entwined, steps in sync a gentle…

Diary #4 – Soosa Sushi & Grill 🍣

Saturday 23rd February Saturday started early, well… prematurely to me at least. I woke up around 8:30am, not only because I had set my alarm for this time; but also due to my cats using me as their wrestle mat. Despite not having the most pleasant of awakenings, I briskly rolled out of bed (yes,…

[Review]: NEW Innisfree Real Fit Matte Lipstick + Dr. Troub Sheetmask πŸ’„

The matte shades focus on variations of red; whereas the standard, somewhat satin finish type are ‘MLBB’ shades. There are 10 colours for each texture.

GRWM 🌸

Indubitably, I am the sort of person who religiously follows the same cosmetics routine despite being nosey for other’s morning routines: you’d think with all the hauls I read about, I’d be persuaded to venture off in search of new products; yet this hasn’t been the case for several months. So, what products have I…

“What’s my opinion on ______❔” – #1.

Where do I begin? Should I make it clear that I’m well aware no one asked for my opinion, or should I justify my reasoning as to why I want to start this series? To be straight forward I don’t think my options are more valid than anyone else’s. I’m most certainly, and objectively, not…

[Review]: e.l.f Cosmetics Rose Gold Look Set (🌱vegan).

e.l.f Cosmetics is nothing new to the majority of cosmetic enthusiasts who aim to discover decent quality makeup, which is also cruelty-free and Vegan. I’m not entirely sure when e.l.f products were officially released in the UK; I somehow missed that memo after waiting a year plus for their arrival. Shame. When looking at the…

‘Treat yo self.’

Retail therapy: is it a bad habit to divert yourself from, or simply a chance to give yourself some gifts? I think as long as shopping for the non-necessities doesn’t become a frequent obsession, going on a little shopping spree once in a while is not unhealthy. It’s a mood lifter during patches of recurring…

Misty.

If my thoughts were objects they’d be contorted, morphed into an altered form; alike a cloud or mist that hovers… solely isolated. If my tears could be collated they’d form a stream of regret, a river of all I wish could be realiterated. If my feelings were on a canvas they’d be the merge of…

[Recipe]: Vienna Sausage Spaghetti 🍝🍴

As of late I’ve been reaching for warming, comfort dishes this Winter: pasta based meals in particular. What’s benefical about this simple recipe I’m about to share, is that it any variety of tomato pasta sauces can be used and still compliment the flavours provided by the vienna sausages and garlic ham. I have made…
