Welcoming 2017 with a blog name anew!

Hello 2017! Years have been flying faster than a shinkansen these days, I’m not sure if I can keep up, but heck if I will allow myself to get left behind. I’m not getting any younger and enjoying all the things life will throw at me is certainly my goal and resolution for this year. Hopefully my lucky stars this 2017 won’t fail me. *fingers-crossed*

So for the start of this year, I’ve decided to finally change my blog name. A lot of thought has definitely transpired before making this decision. I know it’s not a simple task to change something you’ve had since forever, but change is the only thing constant in this world and most of the time, change is a good thing.

There are a number of blog names I can think of for my site, but I’ve decided that this is the perfect one for me.


I’ve always wanted a fanciful name for my blog and amazingly another name for fanciful is “whimsical”. Yes, my imagination knows no bounds. Ha!

Anyways, I first thought of using my Instagram and Twitter caption “Wanderlust and Pixie Dust”, since this is something I’ve originally coined that I feel describes the real me perfectly. However, I was disappointed when I saw another blog with almost the same name, except hers was “Pixie Dust & Wanderlust”. And here I thought I was being original. Never did I realize there’s someone out there who thinks similarly and would think of using it as a blog name as well.

Oh well, I’ve moved on from the disappointment and now I’m sticking with “Quintessentially Whimsical”.



I welcome ME back!

I welcome me back! Yes I do. It’s been quite some time since I last visited WordPress, almost 2 years to be exact, and it looks like a lot has changed since then. I probably need to re-orient myself on what’s new over here.

Anyway, I’ve been thinking of blogging again after that long hiatus, but never really had the time and the drive to do so until a workmate of mine, who I convinced of creating her own WordPress (janellyysh), forced me to do it again. Hahahaha!.

So now I’m finally back and hopefully would continue doing this until I ran out of things to say… which is unlikely at the moment since I was told I talk too much.

So I guess this is it! Happy WordPressing! ❤
