Minimalism or Hoarding?

Since 2016, I’ve been really into the aesthetic of a minimalist. To be honest, all I thought about it is the way you store and present your things in a tidy way.

Review: Hua Mulan Comb

It may sound too cliché but still, our hair is our crowning glory. We tend to fix it everyday but are we caring enough for it?

As an Asian living in a hot, tropical country, my hair is prone…
