Links + Loves

Here are some non-bookish articles I really liked this past month and my latest loves.

1 / As a Filipino-American, I've been struggling with the news regarding all the hate crimes against Asians. I've been sharing stories on my Instagram but I haven't said anything directly because there are no words to express exactly how I feel. But I'm angry, sad, and scared. I did want to share some links here though like to Stop AAPI Hate and this comprehensive list of where to make donations

2 / But aside from staying informed and making donations, there are other ways to show support. Here are links to Asian-owned businesses from Good Housekeeping, Asian beauty brands on Shape, and Asian skincare on Allure. From these lists, I personally just bought facial spray, cream blush, and lip gloss from Tower28 and I'm a huge fan! 

3 / The New York Times shared 7 steps for better sleep and I don't know about you but I definitely need the advice. I've tried some of these already and they totally work. 

4 / The Everygirl posted "12 Parts of Your Home You Need to Spring Clean ASAP" and yeah, I totally need to clean some of these spots. But I did deep clean my kitchen this past weekend so I made progress. 

5 / I think a lot of people will relate when I say I gained weight during quarantine. A writer on Cupcakes & Cashmere talked about how she came to terms with this and discovered a healthier relationship with herself

6 / As I was going through who I follow on Instagram to clean out that list, I realized one of my favorite fashion bloggers (Steffy's Style) was missing. So I went to her blog and saw that she had written a post about deactivating her Instagram account and why. I really think it's worth reading. I very much respect her online presence and it's sad that people often forget there's a real human being with feelings on the other side of the computer. 

7 / Why aren't more people talking about The Nevers? The trailer popped up on my Twitter feed and I'm obsessed! I never heard of it before but it looks amazing! And the actress who played Demelza on Poldark (aka the best part of that show!) is in it. 


1 /
After eyeing this dual sanitizer box and phone charger for over a month, I finally caved and bought it. And 100% no regrets. 

2 / This is the facial spray from Tower 28 that I mentioned earlier. I swear I see a difference when I use it! 

3 / I bought this pen stand from Yamazaki Home somewhat on a whim. But I just loved the look of it and when it arrived, it did not disappoint. It's perfect for my desk and let me consolidate the multiple holders I had for pens, markers, lotions and more. 


Do you have any links or loves to share?
Would love to hear about them!

  1. It really makes me angry that there is such hate and discrimination against people that AREN'T white. I'm so sorry this is a thing.
    I might have to borrow my friend's HBO password to watch The Nevers. I'd never heard of it until now! Also I kind want one of those sanitizer/charger boxes..... 😏


with love,
