My 2014 Bucket List

At the start of the year, we start making New Year’s resolutions and bucket lists. For New Year’s resolutions, the simple they are, the better. As mentioned in my previous post, we tend to associate resolutions with unattainable, almost impossible dreams and wishes that made us easily give up on them after a few tries. With basic and realistic resolutions, we can find them easier to achieve even through small improvement. As for bucket lists, these are the “things to do before I die or before a specific time ends” kind of thing. There is really no limit in here Read More …

New Year, New You | Better 2014

It is that time of the year again when we create resolutions and bucket lists for the New Year. More often than not, we list down things that we want to change for the better – personality, attitude, outlook in life, healthy diet, study and work mode, among others. However, over the years people tend to consider their resolutions as wishes; they think of something very appealing yet sometimes not easy to achieve. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong about dreaming big, but we must also consider the feasibility of our dreams in relation to our target schedule. Read More …

Playing princess with pink formal dresses

For those who wonder about the meaning of my site’s URL, here is the post which can help you understand the blogger behind Impressions of a Princess. Let’s scratch that itch on your curious mind, shall we? To start, my address is gongjumonica.com and it is a no-brainer that “monica” is a person’s name. Shockingly, that’s me. For “gongju”, no it was not from a toddler’s language nor my dog’s. Actually, it is a Korean word for princess. I am in my early twenties, but with a mind like a five-year-old – imagining myself a princess taken away from her Read More …

I’m finally back!

After a week-long, unwanted hiatus I am finally returned to blogging. Some of you missed me and my crazy posts and photos while others breathed “Good riddance” in my absence. J Well, no matter what your reaction was, I am back. With a vengeance? Well, maybe. Be prepared to be flooded with my posts in the next days. Earlier last week I was surprised to see a notice in my WordPress dashboard. It was to inform me that my blog has been suspended for violating the Terms and Conditions of the platform. I was surprised. I wasn’t aware of violating Read More …

Another item bought online

This is my third outfit post. Whoa! Few days ago, I shared here that I received nine parcels from my online store purchases. In my recent post, I have introduced two items I got from Udobuy, an Asian-inspired clothing shop which offers fashionable and affordable pieces for everyone. Whenever I go to their site, I always end up adding too many products in my wish list, which will inevitably go to cart later. For sure those two tops I bought will not be the last ones. I pity my crying and cursing closets. I got this white blouse on a Read More …

Help, I need a new closet!

For the months of April and May, I was surprised to realize that I have shopped more than what I did for the entire 2012. Especially since the last week of April, I found myself frequenting shopping malls and department stores to buy clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories. Then I discovered my love for online shopping and had placed orders in various online clothing sites, too. In addition to that, I gained some blog sponsors who are willing to send me free items from their shop to review. Soon, parcels after parcels of items were being delivered to my house. Read More …

What will you get your mom for Mother’s Day?

Show your love to the most important woman in the world! No matter how busy you are or how hectic your schedule is, you must not forget to show your appreciation to the woman who have given life to you and shaped the person you are now. When you were only a tiny blip in this world, she carried you with her for nine months (unless you are prematured like me) with love even though you gave her a hard time with those morning sickness and sleepless nights as you do cartwheels inside her tummy. When she finally laid eyes Read More …

Start the week with free clothes: An international giveaway

Call me a social late-bloomer (is there a term like that?), but I recently got addicted to online shopping. Last Monday, I had sealed an order for five items in an online shop and got the products four days after. Fast? For me, yes. Some of the items I ordered before (mostly books), take two to four weeks before arriving in my doorstep. So yes, that shop has a speedy delivery. However, it does not have free shipping which is totally a bummer. Living on the other side of the world, shipping costs reach an altitude higher than a skyscraper Read More …
