I BECAME A SUNFLOWER: A Photoshoot
I dressed up as a sun flower for Halloween!


My sister @swaycanete is a makeup artist. I begged her to do my makeup for Halloween 2018. I really wanted to be a sunflower. I told her the "inspo" for this look-- and I was so glad of how it turned out! The makeup was even far more than what I have expected. (By the way, my sister Sway is very new to Hive, and she has yet to post her Intro this week. I hope you would welcome her warmly in our community. Yay!)

Sway did my makeup and she also took these photographs. Yes I know, she is talented. I cannot wait for you to meet her here on Hive.

Here are the pictures from our so-random Halloween photoshoot. What do you think? Please do give your feedback, thank you!

A Poetry Book by Rupi Kaur | One of my Favorites!


It was 2018 when my favorite poet, Ms. Rupi Kaur, launched her "the sun and her flowers" book. I saved up to buy it because I was so, so excited to read her new poetry collection. I got so hyped that the same year, I wanted to dress up as a sunflower lol. (My favorite flower is, yeah you guessed it right, the sunflower!)

I liked almost all the poems in the book! But below are some of the poems that really resonated with me. How about you? Which poems do you like the most? Please do leave your comments.
