Chin Up, Own It.

Many times, we are caught in own fear and negative assumptions that might not even be true. Isn’t it sad when we decide not to do what we wanted to do just because people started staring? That’s how a simple stare can impact our life. We worry what other people might think, we worry that they are making fun of us inside their heads, we basically worry that people won’t accept us for who we are. But what if we simply change our mindset? That people are staring at you because you are different, that you are doing or bringing something new they’ve never seen before, hence the stare of surprise or even delight. Just because people stare, it doesn’t mean its always bad. If you actually just have the courage to stare back and smile, most probably they will end up smiling back at you. ❤️

Playing Unicorn

In Switzerland, I rarely put on makeup. Like l would literally go out all bare-faced and yet I feel so comfortable and 'alive'. My skin is definitely better in cold weather. I don't get any acne, skin is not oily. It's just nice. Going out without any eyeliner also makes me look much younger, and because of that, I often get asked by strangers when I am with Daria, "is she your baby?" heheh. But anyway, today I felt like playing with my makeup, and I went all out..:D

Shahmeer Turns 4

Happy birthday to my shining star, the brightest one, the most special. Never a day goes by without me asking to God to always keep you safe and healthy and be blessed with the best adventures and experiences in life. I love you so so so so much, so much that I can feel my heart being so warm when I think of you. Happy 4th, son.

Team S and D

As the weather gets weirder (for 10 minutes it rained, then it stopped, then it became so windy, then it was sunny, it's so confusing hehe), we chose to stay at home today. Watched TV, played puzzles, cooked, took pictures, lots of cuddles.

Small Things, Colorful Impact

Last month while I was in Jakarta, I got the chance to join the Blogger Gathering together with other fellow bloggers to get to know more about the new CASIO My Style Colorful Calculator. It was such a fun session, sharing about how small things can bring a great impact to our mood and productivity. When we are studying or working or simply relaxing, having small objects placed around us in our favorite color can unconsciously make us more happy and energized, and when we are in such state of mind, whatever we do will result better.

In the event, we also got to see how the new CASIO My Style Colorful Calculator is now no longer just a functional computing product, but also a lifestyle item that is suitable for our fashion, business and travel needs. It’s such a fun item to carry inside our bag, it even makes a great prop for our #flatlay photos thanks to its series of yummy colors.

My own working desk is filled with little trinkets that I love so much; My Little Pony dolls, cactus plants, heart-shaped and flamingo-shaped lamps, tiny Care Bears figurines, cute pens, and now, colorful calculators thanks to CASIO. Creating an ambience that connects to my soul makes working more joyful and definitely less boring.

Now tell me, tell us, how do YOU think small things boost your mood and productivity? Join this Blogging Competition and if your writing gets selected, you will win a free trip to JAPAN!

Far Away

To distance ourself,
is to give enough space for our heart
to actually feel
what is necessary and real.

To pause ourself,
is to give enough time for our mind
to start giving meaning
to all the things we are feeling.
