KOTA KINABALU │ MANTANANI ISLAND



T
his is my second time to Kota Kinabalu (a.k.a. Sabah), most of my trips are circling around Southeast Asia and the most common thing you can find there are tropical islands. Kota Kinabalu is a developing city, hence the living pace is really slow and chill, which is a perfect place for vacation. The Mantanani Island we went to is quite different from all the other beaches I have been to before, fewer people and watersports, more silence and relaxation.

The blue sky and the clear water is a perfect match, surely is an eye candy. The water is very see-through but not as many fishes compared to beaches in Phuket. In Phuket, you can see fishes when there is water, they will come in groups to bite you, thinking you as food. However, I am a snorkeling-lover so we took a speedboat away from the island to explore the sea anyway. There are many fishes once the sea level reaches around 10m and they are all very fascinating.

Summer Jewelry Look Book │ SWAROVSKI


T
here are enough jewelries for me, says nobody. Jewelries are something I wear everyday, I would even go late just to make sure I have at least one piece of jewelry to do the final touch of my look. Yes, they are that important. Now the arrival of summer means more skin, that basically calls out for more jewelry, how can one resist this temptation?
So I have teamed up with Argento Jewelry to try out a few items from the new collection of Swarovski. The collection has two main color: silver and rose gold, the hottest color of the year. The necklaces and bracelets I am wearing both come with pairs, each in one silver color and rose gold color.

5 ADVISE ON COPING WITH ANXIETY


A
nxiety is a very common disorder especially when you live in a busy city. Like many other people, I am consumed by stress and pressure from all kinds of aspects, and dealing with anxiety in this already-confined-situation is not easy. Now there are a few types of anxiety disorders: social anxiety disorder, specific phobias and generalized anxiety disorder (which conducts a huge proportion of the population). 

Social anxiety disorder arises with the usage of social network (or normal social events), you will be worry or even self-conscious of how people judge you by the way you behave. 

Specific phobias are some specific worries or fears about certain objects or activities, such as height or dark. 

Generalized anxiety disorder is what we usually have, they are excessive and unrealistic worries, easily cause by stress and pressure.

Again, I am not a psychiatrist and the above anxiety disorders are just some brief ideas of what people usually experience from what I observed.

ROSE GOLD & SIMPLICITY │ Olivia Burton




W

ith rose gold as the color of the year and simplicity as the greatest comeback, people do not only infuse simplicity in fashion or minimal makeup, but also in jewelry. Something about simplicity in jewelry makes them attractive, you might not want your jewelry to be over the top as it steals the attention from your outfit, but simple jewelry can always make your outfit stand out even better. I know there are a lot of jewelry out there with the theme of simplicity, but I have been needing a new watch lately and I have come across Olivia Burton, which is famous for its simple designs and customizable features.
