sweet lil' succulents.

I'm not really good at being consistent, especially with blogging. I wanted to just take some time out to share one of my newfound obsessions, plants. Although I had difficulties raising small animals when I was younger (i.e. my hamsters *sad face*) I wanted to try taking care of small plants.  My coworker said they were ideal for me since they're low maintenance but still require work. They're lovely and I find comfort in seeing them flower. 

Pretty little succulents from the little shop Brattle Square florist.

simply lovely white.


I'm not sure if it feels more like spring or summer here in Boston. Flowers are finally blooming but this heat feels like a hot summer day in Florida. I had the honor of receiving a beautiful necklace and top from a beautiful online fashion store with a variety of clothing and jewelry. 

Top can be found here & necklace can be found here.

inspirations.


I recently picked up the most recent issue of Kinfolk volume fifteen and I just wanted to share with everyone three important quotes from this magazine:

First, when it comes to entrepreneurship one should aspire to seek for a balance and cultivate the community in creative pursuits which inspire true innovation, passion and satisfaction. This is important to be because I recently spoke with one of my friends about how unhappy we are with our repetitive desk jobs. We wanted to do something that allowed us to be creative and this issue was truly inspirational.

Second, in praise of slowness an unhurried life starts with the choices we make at our desks: Addressing our ambition for more can help us live happily with less. 

Third, success is defined not only by the work that we are doing but by the people we are helping in the process.

hello healthy hair.

With all of the newly surfaced hair color trends many like myself have began bleaching their dark black hair. Getting my hair to blonde took 2 sessions but I would need 1 more session to get it to bleach white blonde. The road to blonde hair had been a painful one so finding the right treatments in between has been a great struggle. My friend introduced me to Hello hair a while ago as well as Hairfinity supplements and I have found that direct hair masks are much more effective.

 This is not something that works on the first try. Considering how damaged my ends really are it took about 3 sessions of applying this hair mask on for about 1 hour each time to really notice a difference. The product is extremely light because it is considered a vegan product containing: Coconut oil which helps recover previous damage and adds shine, almond oil, which carried an abundant source of vitamins to boost strength, argan oil which helps with split ends, olive leaf extract which repairs, and lastly castor oil which has omega-9 fatty acid and helps with your roots and scalp and prevents your hair from drying.

After a few more weeks or months I'll be ready to put my hair through one more bleach session (I know I'm pushing it) but this has helped greatly along the way and I would recommend this to all hair types. Also I recommend that for asian hair our virgin hair at the roots are naturally oily I avoid that area and only apply small amounts towards my bleached/dyed areas to avoid making my roots more oily than they already are. But after a few uses you have soft and fluffy hair!

I am using the Hello Hair Hydrating Mask Island Escape Edition 100G. The only difference is that it has more of a fragrance than the original mask.
