Girl of the Week: Taby Cheng

Occupation: Nursing student, developmental disabilities caregiver, community centre worker, and part-time model.

Hometown: Born and raised in Vancouver, B.C.

Find me at: My blog, Instagram, Pinterest & Twitter.

Wearing… Navy knit toque, grey oversized jacket, pink and yellow newt socks, and black fringe bag from H&M, thrifted CK grey cropped skirt, and black slit skirt and beige platform shoes from Target.

My personal style is… If I had to describe my style the words 90s, boyish, and hint of sexy come to mind.  I really dress to how I feel on that day whether or not I feel like being more comfortable or a little dressy.  Life is too short to wear boring clothes.

Most prized possession… My collection of photos over the years of friends and families including countless sticker pictures, booth pictures, and polaroids.

Must-have beauty product… My Rimmel wake me up foundation, because I think every girl needs a good base before they do anything else.  I love this foundation because it looks amazing on the skin leaving a dewy finish, but is also easy on the wallet.

Favourite accessories… My recent purchase of my cat eye glasses, DIY stackable bracelets, silver rings galore, and beanies.

3 items in my bag… Ralph Lauren perfume roller ball, Hi-Chew candies, and my Langara agenda.

Favourite online shops… My all-time favourites are ASOS and Nastygal.

Wardrobe staples… Crop tops, black high-waisted jeans, oversized sweaters, and maxi dresses.

On the weekends you can find me… Never at the same place. I am always all over the place whether it be picking up a shift at work, having dimsum with family, window shopping on Granville street, or grabbing a drink downtown with friends.

Top 3 favourite songs at the moment… Two of my favourite songs at the moment are actually quite embarrassing. I can’t stop listening to Justin Bieber’s Beauty and a Beat, and Die in Your Arms. I can definitely break out singing and dancing to those two songs.  Another all-time favorite song would be In My Mind by Ivan Gough, Axwell, & Feenixpawl feat. Georgi Kay.

What did you have for breakfast today? I had coffee with loads of milk and sugar and a bowl of brown sugar flavored oatmeal. Yummy.

Currently saving up for… A graduation trip to Mexico!

Words to live by…“If not now, then when?” – John Lewis.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
