Goodbye Month of April

Just a quick post before April ends.

Been very busy in the past few weeks. I needed to redeem myself (once again) in the lab, thus I filled my days and nights with hard work and really focused in my experiment. And I think it is starting to pay off. I've been getting good results lately. Well, what can I say? I'm just a haggard but happy girl!

I'm also now trying to be a one-heck-of-an-organized person. With the help and suggestion of the prof last lab meeting of me writing down the things that I should do and putting it somewhere where I could easily see it to remind myself of the tasks and deadlines. Oh, I think everyone is familiar with it. It's one good old advice but it really struck me. I've been doing it before, you know all that To Do list but I guess I became too familiar and got tired with it and just started to ignore it. But now is the time to take it seriously, those To Do's written in the yellow post it paper using a neon-colored hot pink pen (define colorful, haha).

Okay, time check, 11:55 pm. 5 minutes before 12 midnight. Will be signing out now.

Goodbye April!

Hello May! Please be AMAZING!

Spring Awakening

Whenever I go to a particular place, especially the ones showing the grandeur of nature, I just can't help but capture its my camera lens. My trip to Duryu Park is indeed one of those moments. I've already shared some pictures in the other post but I'll be adding some more here. This time, the beautiful Duryu backdrop plus me in my lace dress and a red balloon.

Surreal and Ethereal

Slipping into a lace dress always gives me a magical feeling. It's like I'm transported into a dreamy realm. Everything feels surreal and ethereal.

Spring Awakening: The Beauty of Duryu Park

It’s so refreshing to take some time off and just enjoy the beauty this new season brings. And there’s no perfect time than on a beautiful Sunday in an equally beautiful place, the Duryu Park. 

I have always loved the parks and other recreational areas here in Korea – their scenic views, clean environment, rich, historical temples and art galleries, and of course, the people strolling around simply enjoying the moment and awakening their senses this spring.

Lace Dress Lovin'

I just can't wait for Sunday and wear these lace dresses. From last autumn (wherein I had my first lace dress and worn it here)until now, I just can't get over some lace dress lovin'. I got these two lovely lace dresses last January and have only worn the black one once (you can find it here) while the nude one, I'll be wearing for the first time tomorrow. 

My affinity for lace dresses and everything lace is starting to get higher and higher, especially now that the weather is getting perfectly warm. So yeah, hopefully I'll get myself some lace blouse and shorts, too.

Classy...Give Me Some ASOS

Lately, I've been looking for some fashion inspiration for this spring season. And luckily, I stumbled upon ASOS, UK's online fashion retailer. ASOS petite dresses just had my heart skipped a beat. I'm loving the clean and simple features and tailored cut. Crochet lace, chiffon, soft gathered pleats, fitted waistband...what more can you ask for? The dresses seem delicate but one can't deny the fact that they also show an air of sophistication and class.

Baby steps

In one of my previous posts, I wrote about my dream overhaul for this blog and now I'm so happy and proud to say that EMANCIPATION[on going] is taking some baby steps towards that goal. Well, that dream overhaul doesn't necessarily involve very drastic changes from the previous look but one can now see an improvement in the header. Hurray! Finally a picture header! *big smile* I've been wanting to put something like that for who knows how long. Haha!

Lovely Spring Sunday

After several months of bittersweet, cold winter...spring has finally come! Happiness! I am loving the warmth of sunlight, the flowers in bloom, and everything that spells SPRING. My Sunday afternoon was spent capturing the beauty of this new season--

clear, blue skies

clean, flowing river

cherry blossoms in full bloom

brightly colored flowers

willow trees lining up the path

fun-filled kids

people with their loved ones

I must say spring is giving me that feeling of new energy, of things being brought back to life after a long time of just being dormant. 
Have a wonderful spring everyone!

For my To-Do's in Spring: Unwind in the park - checked & will still do this more =)
