How are we already halfway through 2021!? I don't know about anyone else, but my brain refuses to understand the notion of time anymore.

How are you planning to spend the rest of the year? I like to use June as a way to reflect and figure out the plan for the next half of the year, and it'll be the same this year. I may share some of my planning and thoughts along the way along with new projects and happenings too.

The Best Comfort TV Shows

How have I not made a list of the best comfort TV shows? You’d think as someone who works in the entertainment industry that I would’ve thrown a list together by now. Alas, better late than never for me to share my favourite shows I like turning to for either instant happiness or cosy vibes – both sometimes too.

Are you curious about what exactly a comfort show is? Before I list a couple of my favourites, here’s a good explanation shared by Today.com:

Mid-Year Productivity Reset Tips

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m trying to understand how we’re already in June 2021!? Honestly, life since March 2020 has felt like a blur and yet somehow… we are here now.

I figured it’d be the perfect time to list a couple of tips and tricks I’m taking on board to have a better grasp of 2021, as I felt the first half was focused more on just coming to terms with the new direction the world and life was settling into (yes, a somewhat delayed reaction). I really enjoy consuming content focused on productivity, mindfulness and mental health because it goes hand-in-hand with being able to output quality, entertaining work from my side.

Spotify Playlists to Listen To ASAP

If there’s one thing that shouldn’t come as a surprise, it’s that I constantly have earphones in listening to music. Honestly, at this point I’m constantly providing an endless soundtrack to my life inspired by Nicki, Demi and Ariana.

With working at home, I’m listening to music more than ever before and creating playlists inspired by every single feeling imaginable. I figured it’d be fun to do a quick post about my current favourite Spotify playlists on rotation – don’t forget to follow me too.

Current faves

I’ve had a bit of writer’s block of late, so figured a simple post speaking about some of my current favourite things would be a fun list to write up. I’ve had a couple of things on a rotation keeping me happy, so here’s what they are.

Buying a MacBook (M1 Chip) in 2021

I wanted to do a quick blog post about my first impressions of the new MacBook Pro with M1 Chip that I bought. I found when I was looking up reviews, I couldn’t find something simple and straight to the point around why people chose this laptop over others… so here I am.

What makes the new Mac line with M1 Chip so impressive?

Best Lyrics From #DWTDTAOSO By Demi Lovato

To no one’s surprise, I’m here to share my favourite lyrics from Dancing with the Devil… The Art of Starting Over by Demi Lovato. As I’ve been saying across social media, this album is her best body of work to date – a literal masterpiece. It makes sense that I’m here to pay homage to it. It’s therapeutic album both for Demi, as well as us listening to it relating it to our own experiences.

My Life Right Now

Hello everyone! I often like to have these summary posts of my life as a nice way to reflect back on life. I’ve taken a couple of days off to reenergise and rest, so you can best believe I’ve spent the time doing all my fave things. It’s always important to take a step back and do the things you enjoy for instant happiness.

How To Order K-Pop Albums & Merch in South Africa

If you’re reading this it’s either because I posted a link, or you’re searching for how to order K-Pop albums and merchandise in South Africa… and I can guess what the answer is. Are you completely deep in the Korean Pop music scene and want to do your part towards owning some merch and repping your faves? Whether you’re a BTS Army, BLACKPINK Blink, Twice Once or one of CL’s GZBs (I see you BlackJacks), I’ve got you covered. I low key wish I had this 10 years ago when 2NE1 stole my heart and introduced me to this world.

What You Can Learn from CL’s Comeback

Guess who’s back! CL… and me with a podcast episode inspired by her return! Yes guys, it’s been an entire minute and Chaerin’s the reason why. In this episode I react to her HWA and 5 STAR comeback and what that meant for me watching her embark on a new era in her musical career.

My Work-From-Home Desk Setup

Hello everyone! I’ve been posting a lot about my current work setup and stationery on Instagram and thought it would be nice to share some of the photos here too. This is in no way near to being finished, it’s definitely the early stages but felt it’d be fun to document the process of getting it “aesthetically pleasing”.

 

Prior to the current pandemic, I didn’t have a work space I really liked so while a lot of us are still working from home I figured it’d be a better time than any to focus on creating an ideal¬†little area to be productive. Please don’t expect anything professional, I’m here for a simple, cute aesthetic – think pastels, Disney and the like.
