Came home to a little pick me up from @atpatelier 🐍
It takes time ⏳
When thinking of someone in your life that you know really really well, usually you can think of all their amazing qualities but all their flaws as well. It’s so rare to have someone come to mind that you absolutely cannot recall any faults in their whole entire existence in your memories; that person, for me, is grandpa. — Even before I started walking, grandpa always put me on his shoulder and took me on walks, and rocked me to sleep in his hammock while he worked on his woodworks or watered his orchids in our garden at our home in Vietnam. When I started learning how to talk and run, grandpa was the one that sheltered me from my mom and dad’s punishments when I did something wrong. When I got bad grades in school and got scolded at, grandpa was the one that sneaked me snacks and encouraged me to do better. As I grew up, grandpa got older, but even knowing so damn well that I was only plucking his white hairs just so he can give me allowance, he always let me do it for hours just so he can have an excuse for my parents to give me a lot. But grandpa while loving me so much, loved everyone equally. — Despite being sick and in pain for the past 10 years or so, grandpa has never yelled at anyone, complained, blamed himself or anyone for his condition. Grandpa fought through every hospital visits and smiled as much as he could. The whole family always joked around saying that grandpa always loved me most, and that had always been something I count as a blessing every time I think about him— but from my point of view, grandpa loved everyone around him the most and that’s why he tried his best to stick around all this time. — As time went on and I only got to see grandpa through video calls and once every 5 years or so, despite the distance and my absence, grandpa was always the first one to greet me at the door when I arrived even if it’s 3 in the morning. Of all the times I’ve left Vietnam, grandpa was always cheerful to not worry me about leaving him and told me to come back soon. But two months ago, when I was leaving, my heart sunk seeing tears rolled down his face as he quietly wished me a safe flight...

Slowly easing into having more yakitori shops as backdrops 🐔🍢
Bought this flannel for 8$ at a thrift store in Harajuku and used home scissor to cut it in half to make a crop top because fall still ain’t really here yet 🤷🏻♀️
The first look of @cledepeaubeauteus’s fall edition of ‘La Creme’ that’ll be available starting October 😍 #RadiantDay #CleDePeauBeaute
My skin has been ridiculously glowy and dewy ever since I got my @cledepeaubeauteus facial the other day - it literally makes me feel so much better about wearing less make up and having all my hair out of my face 😭 (even Shun said he notices a huge difference).
I only like workwear when I don’t have to wear it to do work 👸🏻 #stylehigh
Picked the hottest day to wear a jacket, for no reason 🕯(best emoji I could find for melting)
