I’ve never really cared about or followed the latest trends. Instead, I’ve always thought of myself as a trendsetter.

“Kuch Kuch Hota Hai,” “Dil Chahta Hai,” “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham,” “Mujhse Dosti Karoge!”, “Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai” - I grew up watching the sappiest romance movies ever.

Hands down, the “Bring It On” movie franchise is one of the best series of all time. If you don’t agree with this then you probably just need to sit down and watch them all again to reeducate yourself on cinematic greatness.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

My queen, Priyanka Chopra is reportedly engaged to pop star Nick Jonas. As much as this news excites me, I can’t help but feel 5,000 more feelings than just excitement.

Ricegum

Last week, my social media timelines were blown up with callout posts of popular YouTuber Ricegum’s disgusting actions. After looking further into it, outrageous would be an understatement on how I feel about his travel vlog that took place in my beloved hometown, Hong Kong.

My own type of modest

Why does the TV show “The Bold Type” mean everything to me? Because for once, a Muslim woman is portrayed as a fierce, sexual, artistic being. Representation matters. 

What do I have in common with “The Bold Type”? 

Efe Osagie

I love makeup. I think it’s safe to say that makeup is one of the things people spend the most money on without realizing it.

Kanye West

As my Black Twitter timeline blew up with Bill Cosby memes and “now this” videos about yet another act of violence against someone Black, my heart dropped to see Kanye West.

Maria Clara outfits (You can see the potential looks to be served)

May. Not only is it the time for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM), but the first Monday of this month signifies, essentially, the fashion Super Bowl formally known as the Met Gala.
