Starting this new What’s Good series showcasing things I’m currently loving or am really into this month! Yep I’m thinking it could be a monthly thing, aiming to post within the first week of each month. (This post was in my drafts for an extra week so obviously I’ve already failed posting within the first week of July). Hopefully this schedule will force me to keep up with posting! Do you guys remember my magazine FIRSTLOVE? The whole reason for creating it was because I was constantly on the internet and discovering so many cool brands/products/tips that I just really wanted to share with my readers. I’ve decided to bring that all back home to my blog now with this new monthly series so let me know what you guys think! Also feel free to share any cool things you guys find as well in the comments ♡♡♡
To begin with, just wanted to update that my YouTube channel is still going strong! I took a bit of a break recently but I’m back with quite a few new videos! I recently uploaded a new Get Ready With Me which is up top! Let me know what you guys thing and please don’t forget to like and subscribe!
P.S. I just did a whole vlog for my birthday weekend!! That’ll be coming out soon so stay tuned and please subscribe!
These are two recent purchases for me and I’m loving both of them so hard right now. I haven’t spoken about my skincare much on this blog but a couple months ago I had a major acne break out on just one side of my cheeks and have since really upped my skincare game and really invested in some good products. I love the Fresh clay mask and use it about 3 times a week with different usages ranging from a long-ish 10-20 min mask to a quick 5 min focused dotting mask or mixing a tiny bit with my face wash for a deep cleanse. I only recently realized that my skin is dryer than I thought and using the Sunday Riley moisturizer at night really helps to brighten up and plump up my skin for when I wake up in the morning. A little pricey but really worth the investment and a little goes a long way!
If you follow me on instagram or watch any of my insta-stories, you’ll know I’ve become a full on plant lady in the last year or so. Follow my plant obsession on instagram with #ddsjardin! One of my most recent plant additions is this beautiful ZZ Plant (above left)! It’s so so so low maintenance and doesn’t need crazy sunlight or water at all! Wanted to brighten up my little work space (with my angry little face lol) so the ZZ plant fits perfectly in this tall Menu-style plant stand. Along with collecting plants also comes collecting plant pots! I’m obsessed with finding kind of quirky or special pots (alongside some classic terracotta ones) and this Weak End Club Memphis Planter (pictured right) I picked up at Good Hood in London is just so cute. I potted a small little easy to care for palm in there and sat it on top of these fun Areaware plant stands I also picked up from Good Hood. Oh and this link that Jason found is super handy! Read: How to care for plants.

AHHH So back when we were in Paris, it was the week before my birthday and so obviously makes sense to pick out my birthday present in Paris!!! And i got this Louis Vuitton Pochette Métis!!!!!! Ahhhh I know this bag has been around for a while and everyone and their mother has it in the classic LV brown but when Nanz showed it to me in the new black embossed monogram leather I just couldn’t NOT get it. Plus let’s be honest here, I also just really wanted something from LV in Paris. It’s so so spacious and yknow me and black…it’s meant to be!!! Wore it for the first time here to the Kenzo show while we were in Paris.
Now back in Shanghai, the day BEFORE my actual birthday, I picked up these super comfy Nike sandals from the NikeLab store! They’re actually not out on the Nike website yet so I can’t even find the name for you guys but trust, when you see them you should get them. They’re so comfy. I was tempted to get another pair of the double strap benassi slides but ya girl’s gotta chill on the slides. Wore these out on my birthday weekend to brunch with the Burnands with my new basket bag! I’m gonna be honest and say this shit is hard (and semi-painful) to hold so I think I’ll be wrapping a cute black bandana around the handles to yknow…G it up a bit and make it more comfortable!
