June 2016 Favourites

OMG in just a blink of eye, I'm writing my June favourites. It's just as if yesterday I was writing my May favourites which is my very first post of this monthly series.

Many things happened in June and as the first half of 2016 came to an end, I really hope the 2nd half of 2016 will be better. *I believe it will*

1) Music


I'm obsess with EXID these days. After I watched the live stage of their new song "LIE". I had watched a couple of their music videos previously and I felt the hidden sensual meaning made the music video very awkward and I never had any idea to check them out again. Until one day when I just left my Youtube app playing then I came across this song - I LOVE IT and I'm so hooked!!! 


I went to dig through their old songs and I love "HOT PINK" too! It's so addictive! 


Sistar's new song "I Like That". What can I say? Sistar is Sistar and they always make me have their songs on replay!







Also, throughout June I had been enjoying and appreciating Christina Grimmie's legacy and here are a few songs that I couldn't stop having them on replay these days. 


2) Food

I found out a place called Rustica at Fitzroy and OMG...THEY HAVE THE MOST HEAVENLY CROISSANT that came with edible flowers.

Whenever I eat something with edible flowers, I always feel like I have died and gone to foodie heaven. Thanks to the Sydney's Black Star Pastry watermelon cake with edible flowers on top of it - that's my first exposure to edible flowers.

PS: Regarding to this croissant, I will have a separate blog post and even a vlog specially for it, so stay tuned! *it's THIS serious*



In addition to that, I started having serious craving for avocados! Don't even know what's wrong with me as I used to hate them to the bones!


3) Book

From my last month's favourites, I mentioned a Youtuber called Lavendaire. In her videos, she mentioned this book and how it changed her life in putting things in order in one's home.



After I finished listening to it (I used audio book for it - click here), I spent a few weeks tidying my closet and sorting things in order.

It is a very inspiring book that talks about one of the most common issues that people have when it comes to tidying their home. I bet everyone has this type of issues, no matter how much effort you put into tidying, it always rebounds to the same old frustrating situations again.

Instead of throwing things away or trying to find places to put your things away, Marie Kondo (aka Konmari) tells you to keep things that spark joy in you and throw/donate/recycle those that do not. Then, find a place for the joy-sparking items for your home.

Through this, I somehow discovered a way to control my impulsive shopping urges. Whenever I feel like I want to buy something, I will ask myself "Does this spark joy?" or "Does this spark enough joy for me to make a space for it in my life?" Whenever I couldn't have a straight up "YES" to those questions, then I'd just forget about it.

She even has a typical way of folding clothes which will keep your closet organised. Thus, I took out all my clothes and ironed and fold each of them accordingly!

Though I didn't follow every single thing she taught in her book, the ideas and concepts are good to be incorporated into your own lifestyle. I personally think it's a really great book which will potentially change your outlook of life!


4) Adding flowers to my room


Ever since I finished watching Sex And The City, I have always wanted to have fresh flowers in my room! So after I tidied up my room using the Konmari method, I bought some blue orchids and put it in this Ikea milk jar on my bedside table! 

I'm amazed by how long these blue orchids could survive! This week marks its 3rd week in my room and it's still looking good *yay* Wonder what species will I get after this!

4) A new experience


I went to help out at my favourite florist and learnt how to make terrariums. Trust me now I can build 10 in just 1 hour! NYAHAHA!

That pretty much sums up my month of June, I believe I will be able to live my July and the rest of the months in a much fruitful way! How's your month of June? Anything interesting happened? Please feel free to share down below because I'm nosy as usual! :P 

파이팅!
