Love, Jenae.

eat pray love.

Ever since my friend introduced me to Thai food last year I have been totally in love with it. I've been making my own curries and going to different restaurants. Last month, I went to the local Thai temple where they have a service on Sundays and food. So I went around and explored and sat down and had some really good homemade curry and Thai tea. It's like a whole different world there. 

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend! I am ready for the fall season. :)

Love, Jenae.

pictures of places.

Postcards from the Walt Disney Museum.

The pile of postcards I bought from the Niles Flea market. I have 377 postcards in my collection now, and they look lovely on the walls!

One Direction.

Even though I'm 18, I still occasionally buy into boy bands, but this one is particularly different and certainly  good replacement for the notorious Justin Bieber. For some background history, One Direction was formed by the UK show The X Factor. All five of these boys, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson auditioned separately but later in the series were formed together so that they could make the group category. All of them hail from the UK except for the blonde, Niall, who is from Ireland.

They currently have two singles out in the UK but unfortunately not in the US yet but you can view their music video for "What Makes you Beautiful," an inevitably catchy song that I've been listening to over and over again and i can't tell you how many times I've watched the music video. 

Their voices are unbelievably exceptional and of course, they are all extremely beautiful. Not only that but I find their style to be admirable, and not only to boys either. I applaud their stylist. Their style is boyish, clean, and not flashy in the slightest. I personally LOVE menswear I am thinking about wearing an outfit inspired by Louis from the "What Makes You Beautiful" music video. Also I've been noticing how Louis is always in stripes and how he manages to wear Toms with dressy clothes to pull off a dressy-casual look, which is something I admire since I'm not a fan of Toms. Zayn also always appears to be in sweaters.

From their spread in the UK magazine Tatler:

Picture sources are a mix of weheartit, tumblr, and google.

New obsession, yes? I have no problem with it.

Hope you have a good week! :)

Love, Jenae.

see the shadows passing by.

A late summer evening.

So I had a lovely day yesterday in San Francisco at the Walt Disney Museum. Definitely gets me more excited for my trip in November. :) Now to go paint my nails and watch Roman Holiday.

Hope you all had a good weekend! :)

Love, Jenae.

august purchases.

I've been told by people I know that I am a tea enthuist. My favourite brand is Republic of Tea. It's always so good and I love trying all their different flavours and I have a cabinet full of their stuff. The Goji Raspberry one is really cool because it's a really fruity green tea and it comes out to be this purple colour. Good hot or iced. I drink at least one cup of the Triple Leaf everyday now, and the Toasted Rice green tea is amazing. I think it's a good one to have with dinner.  

These two vinatge totes I got at the store My Friends and I in Niles. $8 and $5. Deal, I think yes? The taupe one is huge and had become my everyday school bag.

These are 3 purchases from the boutique Armadillo Bay. I've been a customer with them for years because I'm good friends with the owner and she has such good taste and I love supporting her store. The Industry leggings are beyond cool, I love the green. Trousers are from Jack by BB Dakota. Great fit for my petite size. The last jacket from BB Dakota I tried it on and wasn't sure if I like it at first but my mum liked it best. I kept getting compliments from other customers and the owner in the store so I guess it was a sign that I should get it.

When I was being my sibling's stylist for back to school shopping we decided to go to Payless for back to school shopping. It was a Bogo sale and we needed another pair of shoes so my mum told me to go find a pair for myself. I came across these Christian Siriano beauties for only $13! I put them on and walked around I thought my mum would think that they were bizarre but she liked them. It's perfect for fall with the snake skin and chunky heel.

Good deals I think so? :) Hope you all have a good weekend! Fall is coming up soon! 

Love, Jenae.
