Feminine, simple but classic

 What Mantra That You Believe in?

“Invest in yourself.Be it your hobbies, passion and desires.”

Career Story

 Ever since I’ve gotten on Pinterest, I’ve been obsessed with the pretty cakes I see on there. I enjoyed baking from time to time when I was a teen but it was only later I decided to give cake décorating a try. I immediately fell in love with the whole process of it and I got addicted to the satisfaction of making something beautiful out from scratch.From there, I made the decision to leave my office job to pursue BITTER/SWEET.

Exercise! Taking care of your health is as important as taking care of your looks.

How she got started in make-up

 Started with toying around with my moms lipstick collection. That’s when we all knew that I was going to be a girly girl.
