Style File: Volume 1.2

Thank you all for your suggestions on what to eat, see, and do in Paris. The Babymoon was a much needed break and so relaxing. I really appreciate your feedback on my last post. Sometimes it’s hard to be vulnerable, but I find it so important to be honest and authentic. I’ll be sharing more in my next post but for a while, I wanted to stop blogging – mainly because of the time and effort it takes to keep up with social media. Honestly, I got disheartened with how many people buy likes, followers, and comment bots on platforms such as Instagram. Thankfully, I’m learning to focus on myself and what I can contribute rather than what other  people are doing. I truly believe that being an influencer is a part of my destiny and I am focusing on how I can best use the gifts, talents, and abilities God has given me to make an impact. With that comes showing sides of myself that are not perfect, and often I don’t want to admit to myself. While for some, perfect pictures and a perfect life is their goal, it’s definitely not mine. Stay tuned for more honest posting coming soon – along with the fun stuff like fashion and travel. Today, I’m excited to share my weekly round up of my favorites this week!

Babymoon Part II in Paris and a Birthday celebration!

Location // Parc Monceau // Dress H&M //

Good morning, I’m writing today from a cafe in Paris with a hot chocolate on my right and an apple filed pastry on my left. Filled with gratitude, I feel blessed to be healthy enough to travel during my pregnancy and enjoy this time as much as possible.  I had a pretty tough first trimester – I stayed indoors for almost 2 months with nausea and tiredness. Thankfully my second trimester has been wonderful so far and I have been able to travel.  As I write today , there is so much I want to share about how I have been feeling about this blog and social media in general over the last few months. As I prepare to become a mother, I am paying a lot more attention to how I view the world and what I contribute. I feel like a lot of what I post makes it seem like life is great 24/7.  As with anyone, that is definitely not the case and to be honest – I’ve had my share of struggles adjusting to my new life in Singapore. Consciously, I try not to write about negative things since I want the blog to be a place of positivity and inspiration. At the same time, I want to be honest, real, and I am really tired of the perfection portrayed on Instagram and social media on a daily basis. So do I balance? Do I quit? Or do I try my best to put a sincere effort towards being more real on the blog? I’ve decided to go with the latter and share some much needed changes I’ve made my life. Many of these changes were inspired by listening to Oprah’s Soul Sessions from Season 3 – especially Gabby Bernstein and Tony Robbins.
