dîner décevant

By on December 16, 2017

 

Papillon is a restaurant located in East Bay (Fremont to be exact).  I had such high hopes for this establishment. I was looking forward to seeing what fine dining out elsewhere in the East Bay would be like. 

There seems to be a lot of effort going on at the restaurant. The ambience inside is quaint and has a very classic feel to it. The staff seemed eager, but ultimately everything was a bit off for the entirety of the meal.

Take your promises ’cause they’ve all been broken

By on November 27, 2017

Announcement: I’m currently hosting a giveaway with some other bloggers on my Instagram. The giveaway ends on the 29th! We’re giving away three makeup/skin care kits and a $250 Sephora gift card!

 

 

I’m trying to get better at flat lays, and I think I have improved! The biggest problem I have is lighting, and it doesn’t help that I only have one window, so the perfect time to take photos is during the afternoon. I need softer lighting. The light I have is yellow, so it doesn’t really do a great job + the unevenness of natural light from one window. Time to invest in some lights.

 

Anyways, I’m combining this post with some gifts I got for my birthday and housewarming (and snuck in a couple of things I got myself). I didn’t make a flat lays out of all the gifts (partly didn’t have good lighting and partly not making time for it). I feel really loved and special receiving gifts. Thank you so much to everyone who gave me a gift, but what I’m most thankful for is having you apart of my life.

Throughout the last two weeks, I have done some DIY stuff. Some of them have been cutouts, but my backyard is quite big and I wanted to have it well-decorated. Also, I need to decorate the outside too!

Some/similar things I bought/made for decorations:

The previous weekend, Michael, Tim, and I went to Costco to buy food and miscellaneous items. We also went to a pumpkin patch after, but we ended up buying pumpkins from Trader Joe’s. But the pumpkin patch was really fun to be though!
