If there is one thing that I am terrible at, it is commitment. As you could see, I have not been putting enough love and nourishment into this blog as I wish I would. For a month, I went on another hiatus, having no good content to blog about. I didn't want to be one of those generic blogs which posted daily outfits. I wanted each of my post to be meaningful, to hold some sort of depth to them. You see, I wanted to inspire people with my blog posts. I wanted to make people feel. 
Therefore, because of my what you could call an "awakening", I am veering away from just outfit posts. I am not saying that I will end my fashion content on this blog, for fashion is a form of self-expression I strongly encourage. I will just be posting less of it because I want to put more thought into each word and picture that goes up on my online journal. Though I am not yet completely at the level of inspirational blogging as I wish I could be, I will keep trying.



Enough being said, let's go onto the main topic of this post. Halloween has passed by two days ago. Because the holiday fell on a Friday, my friends and I decided to celebrate this spooky day with pumpkin carving, movie watching, and trick-or-treating (yes, I do realize we are much too old to go from door to door asking people for candy). 
For all of us, this was our first time pumpkin carving. We didn't have any of the correct utensils for this activity so we made use of what we had lying around, meaning kitchen knives. After minutes of scrolling through Google for the perfect cutout for our Jack-o-lantern (we didn't want the common jack-o-lantern face), we settled with a simple cat pattern to go by. An hour of carving later, we ended up with our cat-o-lantern. We left our cat friend outside and went indoors to watch movies, waiting for nightfall to come.
Once the sky became dark around 6 o'clock, we came to another obstacle with our cat-o-lantern - lighting it up. all we had were one of those thin, long red candles used for burning essence  and other Buddhist rituals. The thin candle would have trouble standing on it own and we were all afraid of dropping the candle while placing it inside our pumpkin. After scavenging around the backyard, we found one of those moon cake holders to mount our candle onto. Because all of us did not trust ourselves to put in the candle through the whole we cut on top of the pumpkin, we cut another opening on the back side to make it easier for us to insert the candle. 
At last we were done with our first jack-o-lantern! Considering this was our first time carving pumpkins, I must say that we did a pretty good job. 







A quick little outfit post for you all. Independence day is coming up soon. Got to get into that red, white, and blue! More lengthy blog posts will come soon!

The other day, I was digging through my closet when I came across this lovely sheer black dress with a blue floral overlay. I completely forgot the existence of this dress. You see, I was digging through my closet in hopes of finding my poofy cherry printed dress which I was planning to wear to a nice outdoor occasion such as a picnic. Before I found my cherry dress, I found this one neatly folded on top of it. At first, when I held up the dress, it honestly looked like a nightie with it's black lace trimming and sheer fabric.
