Twenty Five



It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I’m happy to have the chance to finally sit down and blog again. Earlier this week I turned one year wiser, and I spent my special day in the happiest place on Earth – Disneyland! Normally I’m not too big on birthday celebrations, but since it’s my 25th birthday and I find this to be a significant age, I allowed myself to indulge on this day.



I was so happy to find that there’s a Toy Story area in Hong Kong’s Disneyland – I love this little green man so much.



I wore all my favourite casual pieces to Disneyland – my lumberjack shirt (because I’m Canadian), stretch skinny jeans, and my Filson backpack.




When I first stepped into my twenties, I knew that I had a lot coming up ahead of me. Looking back at the last five years, a few important things have happened – I learned how to drive, graduated University, founded this blog, discovered my love for photography, traveled across 30 countries, and became financially independent. More recently in the last six months I moved to Hong Kong where I am furthering my career in a big city, getting in touch with long last relatives, and starting to build one of the most important relationships of my life. I still believe the best has yet to come though, and I’m very excited to see where the latter half of my twenties will take me.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a great week!

I’m wearing:

Shirt : Jack Spade | Jeans : Topman | Shoes : New Balance | Backpack : Filson (c/o) | Watch : Timex
