Stationery is life. Capitalized and italicized.

I’ve always known I was a stationery junkie ever since grade school. I can still remember in 1st grade when I got in trouble for selling papers I had designed and decorated in class for 1 peso a piece. Apparently, it was illegal!!! My classmates loved them, I had handfuls of customers on a daily basis. Read more

Just because I live in the desert, doesn’t mean I can’t order from Amazon!

When I was living in Manila, ordering online was pure bliss. It always feels like receiving a gift from your past self!

No one can really forget the memories of school. Read more

Hey guys!

I had a lot of people ask me about the notebook I use as my bullet journal, and I remember mentioning what it is a couple of times in my previous blog posts.

“Do you live in a tent in the desert?”

That’s what I usually indirectly get from people when they first find out that I’m from the Middle East, particularly in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I can’t help but crack up because I have only ever been in a tent once in all the years I’ve lived here, and it was because a classmate brought a camping tent to class one time just for the banter.

International Coffee Day: Coffee Favourites 2017

Coffee is the sweet nectar of the gods that has been bestowed upon us undeserving humans. If there was a genie that gave me three wishes, I would wish for a portable coffee tap that contains infinite litres in my purse.
