Weekly Word Picks - Dreamy

The closer it gets to my US trip, the lesser I update this blog, lol. I'll try to remedy that, but keyword is try. I have an insane amount of things to do before the trip it is just ridiculous!! I am soooo tempted to bring stuff onto the plane to do! (at least, things that doesn't need the use of sharp objects) ;) Crafting on the plane, anyone?

Anyways, this week's word was chosen by Amanda from milkandhoneyhandbags, and it is...

200 posts and exotic herbs photography

This is the 200th post of the blog! Woohoo!! I am celebrating it by posting photos that I snapped in the weekend at my uncle's garden. It's like a jungle out there!

For the record, I do not know what most of these plants are, just funny names in chinese. I do know however, a lot of these are herbs and are used to make herbal tea. :) I think one of them is a mint plant though...

Weekly Word Picks - Bliss

Mysteriously, much like Vegan to Charity, this week's picks were of a similar shade to last week's picks on Train. I swear this is coincidental lol, I did not do this on purpose. I guess for next week I should consciously avoid the similar color scheme. :)

Anyways, this week's word was picked by the wonderful Brenda of LoveInfinitely. And her pick is...

Blog feature, giveaway and other things!

I'm featured on Green Eyed Monster. :D Woohoo!! Hop on over to read the post and best of all... GIVEAWAY ALERT!! You could win a bracelet of your choice from your's truly in a giveaway on Green Eyed Monster too. So what is there to lose? Go over there now!

And on a side note, Around the World series will be taking a temporary hiatus as I will be flying to US in 3 more weeks. EXCITED!! Hence I will be super busy preparing for it until then. Another reason I am putting this particular series on hiatus is because of Etsy's new Shop Local search system. I just absolutely HATE IT because instead of getting a list of shops in the area I am searching, I get regular search results of listings of shops in that area. So instead of having 10 shops listed on one page that I can glance through to find interesting ones, (and no repeats) I probably get lesser shop results now with the shops with hundreds of listings dominating my search. I really hope they change this while the series is on hiatus on my blog... :(

The Month of June

June birth stone : Pearl

It's june, IT'S JUNE!! Counting down 25 days until my flight to the great land of USA!! :D I am soooo unprepared that I am already freaking out omg! But I must be calm and collected, and get things done before I leave for my trip. So this month I'm going to take it reaaaaal easy in terms of Etsy store management. :)

These are the goals for May!

1. 175 sales.
2. 720 shop hearts.
3. 160 items.

In which I achieved...

1. 179 sales! Woohoo!!
2. 661 shop hearts, sobs.
3. 146 items. (lol)

It's ok, considering that I am cycling out some older stuff and just waiting for them to expire, it's alright to have a little lesser items. Although, it seems like I am forever stuck in the mid 100s and could never reach 200... Anyways! Here are my goals for June!

1. 185 sales.
2. 720 shop hearts.
3. 150 items.

Yes, being extremely humble. I am itching to make new things, trust me, but I just do not have the time amongst my preparation for the US trip! But I guess the itch can only be cured when I get back. :D So until then I'm going to take it real easy~ But I do have a giveaway planned for this month, watch out for that. ;D
