How To Have An Epic Solo V-Day
No, this is not another typical valentine’s day post! Because if you’re reading this, I am just like you- Single AF! For some reasons, I am almost ALWAYS single on valentine’s day, so I actually got really good at celebrating it with myself. This year, I thought I would share some of my tips to help you overcome the IHVD(I-hate-Valentine’s-Day) syndrome, and here we go!
Give Yourself a Staycation 宅度假去吧！
I’ve always been a big fan of staycation- all the excitement of getting out of your daily norm, but excluding the hassle of travelling out of town. (And yes, none of those painful airplane acne!) So this year, since I am single af, I’ve decided to spoil myself with one night at The Howard Hotel. This hotel has been on my list for so long, every time I walked by it on my way to a shoot, or to a meeting, I’ve always been like I am going to stay here one day! So why not this valentine’s day! #loveyourself2018 right?! I've also partnered with WEARLIVELY to demonstrate how to look effortlessly chic with that lively attitude. Their bralette is extremely comfortable and the lace doesn't make me feel itchy! (Very big plus for me because I have sensitive skin) If you want to try them out, feel free to use my code AMB-jhilisays for a $10 off for your next purchase! (No commission for me, only perks for you! 😉) Beautiful hotel, comfy bralette, and some hydrangea, wouldn't you say it's a good solo V-day?
Do a Galantine’s day 單身閨蜜派對！
As the famous quote goes, “Men might come and go, but women stay.” So this year, invited by Tricia(@happilyeverstyle), I did a little Galentine’s date with her and Lea @leabohnen. I don’t know if you agree, but sometimes, it’s just so much more fun when you only hang out with the girls! You talk about make-up, clothes, hair, photography, classes you’re going, and of course we talk about boys too! We spent a lovely afternoon at Plunge, the view there was breath-taking! Will definitely come back again when summer is back in town.
Buy Yourself Some Jewelry 犒賞自己一些珠寶
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend! But relax! I am not asking you to buy diamonds here. I’ve come across this jewelry brand “Shop Small Things”, they literally have the cutest and well-designed pieces with affordable price! My current favorite is the one in the first photo below, called "HEXAGON PRESSED FLOWER THREAD EARRINGS", also this one and this one. I literally am obseesed because everything is so cute! (And P.S.: They ship internationally!)
Upgrade your skincare routine 為肌膚換個心情！
I’ve recently come across the Herb Blending collection from Nature Republic, and I.LOVE.THEM! I repeat, I love them! It’s so rich and creamy, yet it does not break me out. The scent is light and natural, and my skin is literally baby smooth after I got on the collection after like three days. My favorites are Herb Blending Cream and Herb Blending Toner, they are probably the most refreshing yet nourishing products I've ever tried. I will definitely recommend this collection to people with combination skin but want something nourishing within a medium price range. It’s V-day, spoil yourself a little bit!
我最近試用了一套Nature Republic的草本抗老滋養系列產品，我很喜歡！它質地非常地綿密柔滑，香味也不會太香，非常適合我這種偏敏感的混和性膚質使用。如果你在冬天也想要換一套比較滋養的保養品，他們的價位算是中階，比專櫃便宜，但媲美專櫃質感。我最喜歡的是Herb Blending Cream草本滋養霜和Herb Blending Toner草本滋養化妝水，這大概是我用過最清爽，但同時又最滋養的冬季保養品的。各位喜歡的話可以試試喔！
Up Your Home Décor Game 重新佈置家裡
Inspired by Tricia @happilyeverstyle, I’ve been so obsessed with home décor lately. Before, I always feel like I am only renting a place, it doesn’t really make sense for me to spend money on décor. That’s still true, but if you calculate and budget wisely, there’re so many things that you can do that can instant change the mood of your room! My recent discoveries includes this vanity tray, a couple prints from society 6, and of course, some scenting candles. Don't they just go well with my overwhelming perfume collection? ;)
