I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

I love me. I really do, apparently – I listed all the symptoms into a search bar (Did you mean “Kanye West”?) and took a Buzzfeed test and everything. It’s legit. Dr Google says so. I, Shini Park, love spending time absolutely, completely alone.

With champagne, preferably.

I’ve written, time and time again, that my husband and I are keen observers of the Because-Why-the-Frick-Not day. We’ve done the ‘perfect date’ out, more times accidental than not, for reasons including but not limited to: the fact that there is sink full of dirty dishes at home and none of us remembers whose turn it is to clean, when the #Brexit landlady announces she would visit sometime during the day, or that time when I found a £5 note in an old coat and thought I’d treat us to a three-course dinner, a movie and some very expensive lingerie. Point is, we don’t need a reason to dig out champagnes flutes – every time I wear socks that match is a happy un-birthday, every time his spreadsheet runs without errors that’s a #MoetMoment. We are very happy. And highly cynical.

Moët Rosé Impérial ‘Emoëticons’


What we also are, are a pair of hardcore introverts. Ones that can only charge batteries by being completely alone in a quiet room, surrounded ideally by inanimate objects, preferably also occasionally hugged by a machine with arms made of wood. Do you have anything fun planned for Valentine’s Day? Someone asked me in an email a few weeks ago. Why yes, I do. I took a bottle of Limited edition Moët Rosé Impérial ‘Emoëticons’ to the other room, painted on every surface but my sketchbook, and stuck Moet Stickers (Also available as app in iOS and Android) on my body while screeching to Ciara’s My Body (to the dude’s despair). My best use of a Tuesday in February, maybe EVER.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a greater description of what’s to be alone with oneself and love everything about it! Hands up for a good alone time :) Plus, Images on point as always!

  3. “we don’t need a reason to dig out champagnes flutes – every time I wear socks that match is a happy un-birthday, every time his spreadsheet runs without errors that’s a #MoetMoment.” HAHAHA Why is this my entire life?! I literally popped open a bottle of wine last night (ON A MONDAY) because my bookkeeping was all green instead of large spots of red. YAS. Also, I’ve had stickers get stuck in my hair before. #MoetMoment

  4. Yes this is all so cool!



  5. Firstly – If Buzzfeed said it then it is legit. I believe in the accuracy of those quizzes. I love that every moment is a Moet moment, and I totally agree -any reason for celebration requires kicking off your shoes, and pouring out the Moet because, why not right? Love how you’ve shown the playfulness of the brand with the stickers as well and it all looks so beautiful!



  6. Great post and photos! Love it :)

    I love your photography and you are the perfect muse to everything <3

  12. It is so refreshing, when someone finally understand, that you don’t have to be a person unable to talk with others to call yourself an introvert. I know exactly, what you mean. :) I love the idea of enjoying solitude with a glass of Moet! Beautiful as always.

  15. In a world where we always shower compliments onto our friends and strangers, and not onto ourselves, I’ll say this post (cheeky as it is) was really a much needed read.

    Here’s to more “I LOVE ME” to everyone!

  16. This looks like such a fun yet luxe shoot, I loveee the pink bottle and your graphics as always!

  17. very beautiful. truly talented. http://whimsicalwolfblog.com/

  18. I love this! You’re not alone Shini! I honestly can’t understand people that ‘can’t stand to be alone’. It’s an alien concept to me. I can’t stand to not be alone! Well, for extended periods of time I mean. People are annoying and dancing around in my house with a bottle of champagne is much more fun than sitting somewhere public trying to entertain a vacant face. The only person whose company I don’t mind full-time is my fiancé. We do our own thing in each other’s company and I love it. We’re on the same page and that’s what makes us a kick-ass team. Keep sipping and dancing! xo Lara Olivia

  19. Love your combination with pink color it so beautiful and so creative.

    Hi, just wanted to say how much I am enjoying your blog. Its great to see that you guys need quiet time too, away from everything. My friends don’t understand me when I say the same so its great to find someone who thinks like me. I don’t like to plan either and enjoy spur of the moment adventures – the other afternoon I drove over a 100 miles to the seaside, why? To paddle in the sea and pick up some sea shells. Great fun with some great friends. Simple as! loving the photos too!

  26. Thank you so much for your genuine comment – so rare these days! If I had a choice I’d drop everything and drive to the seaside too – even if it’s just for a walk!

  27. The aesthetic is perfect with the soft angles and colours.

  28. I love the underlying message in this post. Me time is everything! The photography is stunning, big fan! xoxo
