5 Websites for Beginners Learning Calligraphy

February 19, 2018

There are so many websites and youtube videos that teach you how to start with brush lettering and the basics of calligraphy.

I wanted to learn how to master brush-lettering and handwriting so that I can make my own cards and gift tags.

That was the first reason I started to search and google brush-lettering basics.

But while going through many sites and videos online, I ran into so many that didn’t show me the basics.

I didn’t know why my writing wasn’t turning out like the videos and why it was so hard for me to get the smooth lines that everyone else was writing.

I was hard enough finding the brush pens that everyone was using (Tombow dual brush pens and the Fudenosuke pens) in Korea but getting the lettering to go in the direction I wanted to was even harder!

So then I started to REALLY do my searching. I picked sites and people that had the specific styles I wanted to be able to do too. Then I narrowed it down to the FREE practice sheets and REAL basic, and when I say basic, I mean literally BASIC BASIC tutorials.

So if you’re in Korea and want to purchase a TOMBOW pen like me, go here.

And for the sites with good tutorials and practice sheets.

Links | 이른둥이 | Cheap Carter’s Products in Korea

February 6, 2017

I’ve been doing a lot of research during my spare time (other than just being on the blog and updating it) for clothes for Tyler (baby#3).

With Josh, I just bought everything online. At online shopping sites that other mothers suggested and ones that my friends had bought from. With Andrea, I was in Vancouver, so I bought everything at the Carter’s store in Langley.

With Tyler, I wanted to do some research and wanted to purchase products that I knew were easy to put on and take off, had good laundry materials (some bodysuits would go all weird when I washed them in the washing machine) and that were not highly priced.

While doing my research, and from past experience with Josh and Andrea, I found Carter’s products lasted long and were just very comfortable to use.

I literally searched and searched for a website that would send me Carter’s products without the long wait, no extra taxes and fees. Then while doing my research, I found this website. I know, the design isn’t as pretty as we would like it to be (it looks like a website from the 80’s I know) and the buttons do look out-dated. But they aren’t a site that ships from the states once the order comes in. They ACTUALLY SELL PRODUCTS THAT THEY HAVE IN STOCK. Really. Stuff that they have in stock, in Korea, not international shipping!!!!

The prices are not as high as other sites that sell Cater’s products (most sites like to make a margin out of selling internationally shipped products) but seem to have reasonably priced EVERYTHING.

So if you’re in Korea and you’re looking for a website with lots and lots of baby stuff. There is a place you can get your Cater’s products within 3-4 days after payment.


The blog I found and fell in love with

January 18, 2017

I accidently stumbled across a blog. I don’t even remember what I was Googling about, but I was on Google for the longest time. I found myself opening up more than 20 tabs of websites that were just listed in front of me.

I don’t know her age. I don’t know where she lives. I don’t know her.

I just know she experienced some things in life that I thought I was the only one who did.

Her images are captivating.

Her words are so fun to read that I literally spent about 2 hours on this two-page blog.

Her recipes are easy to follow, AND THEY ARE VEGAN.

I’m not vegan. But I love vegan recipes cause I know I can use them in whatever way I want to and make myself feel healthy!

I love it when I stumble on something and it’s like a hidden treasure. So beautiful and so helpful. I hope she updates her blog more, and soon!


[SG] Red bus photography

October 26, 2015


I was looking around for family photo sessions in Singapore and wanted to share the results.

Some of the pages and sites I found.. the photography style was beautiful but wasn’t my style.

I like the really deep colours and contrast in photos.

I also like photographs that use natural light and felt that Red Bus did it the best.

I hope I can get a photo session with them during my stay in Singapore!!!
