Joy in Reading Books
I’m the kind of person who finds happiness in a bookstore. I love the smell of the hardbound and paperback pages, the beautiful and minimalist style of the text and the first few lines of the beginning of the book that arrests you immediately, you can’t put it down. It’s the thrill of reading, the race to find out what’s going to happen next, why it’s happening, and what it does to you. Then you feel a wonderful mish-mash of emotions about life and if you were in the shoes of this fictional hero, what would you do? It’s exciting, and I love being excited. :)
Here is what the Richest and most Successful People In our World Have in…
Okay, this video is not about getting rich quick. It’s about learning a new skill that has been making waves in the world right this second! It’s what runs your blog, your favorite social media app, your go-to websites, and many more things that you honestly can’t live without if you were born in this century. Big words, I know, but I think it is interesting. :) An absolute must-watch. Make your twenties remarkable. This video definitely inspired me more. :D
I’m no extreme self-loather, but I’m perfectly aware of my flaws. And probably the only party of my body I rarely have complaints of is my hair. I’ve worn short hair in the past (like, from 2008-2009, I copied Rihanna’s very popular angled bob during her Good Girl Gone Bad phase), but worn it longer since 2010 so its easier to manage. A lot of people surprisingly loved my new cut, and I think I’m going to maintain it for a while.
Lucky’s September issue marks one year of editor-in-chiefing for me. It’s been an amazing journey, thank you all for your encouragement and inspiration! As the magazine about personal and street style, we couldn’t have done it without you 😘 (at Lucky Magazine)
I looooove Eva Chen. Certainly a woman of style and substance I can look up to. And oh, I will scour Booksale for every single back issue of Lucky she directed as its new EIC. But I’ve been a Lucky mag reader for a while now, so this is pretty much my norm. :)
I mega MISSED blogging! It’s been a year since I put up my blog, myremarkabletwenties, and I can honestly say that the past months I’ve been “outie” has been a wonderful joyride of both challenge and bliss. Right now, I’m crazy about Tracy Anderson, Gwyneth Paltrow’s fitness main woman. I’ve gotten hold of her exercise videos, and damn, can this lady whip you into shape or what. After 3 short weeks of doing her workouts (I’m sad to say I could only workout for a max of 3x a week, I leave the house so early for work and come home so late!), my butt is rounder (forgive me for the straightforwardness, hahaha), my arms a bit shapelier, my back a lot stronger and my legs —- MY LEGS! —- look so good in a bandage skirt, a swingy dress and straight leg pants.
UH - MAY - ZING. I love Tracy soo much that her January 2013 Redbook Interview is posted on my bedroom wall. Love, love, love!
When I master The Method for beginners, I will def. transition to her advanced modules.
Fitness is a huge deal for me. I love feeling strong: being able to lift and carry heavy purchases and office files is already an achievement for me. And I hate getting sick and having no energy at all. Exercise is among the best ways to stay happy, healthy and engaged. Spoken like Tracy would herself. ;-)
