Rosegal International Giveaway

As a girl, I love following the latest fashion trends to be always in style. However, I admit that fads easily come and go, and then later my wardrobe would be filled with items I have worn only once or twice. So aside from being trendy, I also invest in articles of clothing that won’t grow old with age. I think it is important for everyone to own timeless pieces as one cannot go wrong with these items no matter what the height of fashion is. My newest shop find is Rosegal, an international online store which specializes in unique Read More …

Rainy season must have: Sammy Dress cute hoodie, woolen cap, and star necklace

On the other side of the world, summer makes people of all ages go out and have fun in the beach and other bodies of water.

However, on the side I’m in, strong winds and torrential rains beat the countries and test the resilience of Asians. Flood is not an uncommon occurrence and traffic is always one of the results. Students pray for classes to be suspended and when schools formally announced the good news, 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 …
