Ideas For a Bedside Vanity Tray

Remember this post when I wrote about how I was currently obsessing over vanity trays? I've been on the hunt for the perfect one for awhile now and I am so lucky I was able to finally find one that I like! I am even more lucky to find this particular tray just at home and I didn't have to pay a single cent for it! It was an old vintage tray that nobody ever used so I decided to use it to prettify my bedside. Here are some ideas on how to decorate and style it, and what items to put.

Destination Outfits : Winter

Vacation time doesn't always mean beach time, it could also mean skiing, visiting glamorous and exciting cities during the winter or even going on an arctic expedition. Whichever activity you decide to do, it doesn't hurt to look as stylish as you can! Of course comfort and the cold must be taken into consideration but there is always a way to look chic and appropriate.

The Grilled Cheese Diaries : Grilled Ham, Jam and Cheese

I bet you guys didn't think that the combination of ham, cheese and strawberry jam was good! I thought it was weird too at first but once I tried it out, I discovered that it was amazing! The combination of the sweet strawberry jam and the saltiness from the ham and melted cheese was divine. It's not a complicated recipe and you can pretty much use whatever flavor of jam you want.

Currently Coveting : Vanity Trays


I've been obsessing over fixing up and prettyfying my room lately. One of the things that I've been wanting to procure is a really pretty vanity tray for my bedside table and for my dresser. I've seen so many beautiful inspirations on pretty bedside decor all over the internet that I decided it was high time I got rid of all the clutter in my own.

Thoughtful Tuesday : FOMO

I think that no matter where you are in the world, you'll always feel like you're missing out on something. The grass is always greener on the other side - this is only true if you make it so.

Sotanghon Pho

It's been pretty chilly in the tropics lately. It cannot be a more perfect time  to take a steaming hot pot of noodle soup! I decided to make my own version of a "pho" For those who don't know, pho is a Vietnamese type of noodle soup. I researched ways to make it and came up with a pretty simple, modified and easy version of it. I also used sotanghon (vermicelli) instead of the linguini shaped rice noodles used in the traditional ones. Read on to see how I made my version.
