Day 11: Favourite corner

I got to decorate my room this summer after several years and the very first thing I put together was this corner with some of my favorite things: plants, my piano, and yoga. I find peace in this little corner each morning when I do my daily stretches as the sun shines through the off-white curtains.

Day 10: Grocery run

Last Sunday, my mom gave me the task of buying a rather long list of grocery items to cover for the whole month. I was excited to step out of the house and hit the stores until I almost fell off my bike because I couldn't balance all those heavy bags.

Day 9: Self-care necessities

I'm a super extroverted person with a very tight schedule and self-care for me is really spending time and money on myself; to forget the worries of the world and just enjoy a good meal, or movie, or even just dancing by myself.

Day 8: I keep wearing..

Because I under packed for the lockdown, I had very few clothes to wear. Since I was too lazy to shop, I just stole clothes from my family and they are probably not getting it back any time soon.

Day 7: Recent cravings

Living with my parents has made me cut down on a lot of fast food and chill time with friends, maybe that's why my cravings are mostly eating lots of snacks, getting a much-needed makeover at the salon and ofc a night out with friends.

Day 6: Daily routine

I'd been struggling to have a solid schedule when I was at uni, but recently I've managed to involve activities that I've always wanted to incorporate into my lifestyle and it's been very rewarding so far.

Day 5: Ingredients to my mess..

I'm usually a clean freak but I have this smaller table next to my work desk which hasn't been touched or sorted for weeks now. Thanks to this journal, I finally got myself to clean it up.

Day 4: Last 3 reads..

I usually don't get the time to read books because of my tight schedule but I somehow managed to find time for these gems this summer and I thoroughly enjoyed reading them.

Day 3: Creating with..

Being an architecture student, I was both curious and nervous about using all this diverse (and rather expensive) set of stationery. 3 years down I cannot get enough of them and deeply regret not carrying them along when I left for home from uni this year.

Day 2: Recently I learned about..

Terrarium/Terraria
I'd been researching over my landscape design assignment and stumbled upon the topic of Terraria. I found it pretty fascinating that so much goes into setting up these small & delicate planters and immediately fell into a rabbit hole of information on this.

Day 1: Currently listening to..

Palo Santo (Deluxe) by  Years & Years
There's something about Ollie Alexander's voice that keeps bringing me back to this album and I get hooked to it, just like I did the first time I heard it back in 2016. My favorite from this album has to be 'Valentino' Feat. MNEK. 

The medium I've used here is called Plastic crayons (literally all I have with me at the moment). Similar to crayons, but has a smoother, finer look and is also erasable.
