Hi guys! My name is Waikei [Why-Key] Tong, I am 21 years old and live in New York City.

I’m currently in university studying biology and philosophy, but when my head’s not buried in books, I blog!


With Waikei is a lifestyle blog that I’ve created filled with positivity and love. In the pages of With Waikei,

you’ll find lifestyle, beauty, fashion and fitness tips, along with some delicious and easy recipes —

all tailored to fit the needs of a twenty-something always on the run.


I hope you enjoy and thanks for reading!

I’m so glad you’re here. xo,






Do you wear false eyelashes?

Nope! My eyelashes are from a combination of  Benefit’s They’re Real! Tinted Lash Primer, Maybelline’s Falsies Big-Eyes Mascara, and curling them a little too much 🙂

How tall are you?

I am 5’7”.

What foundation do you use?

I use Benefit’s Hello Flawless! Powder Foundation on top of a light layer of Stila’s One-Step Correct Primer. I find that this combination really makes my foundation last all day (because what busy college student has time to reapply?!). You can shop all my makeup must-haves here.

What’s your workout routine?

I’m very on-and-off about my workouts, but when I get into it, I love a combination of spinning (via Soul Cycle) and ballet barre (via Pure Barre). Of course, that can get expensive very quickly! So, when I’m working out at home, I like to do 30 min uphill incline on the treadmill (just to get in some cardio and lift up the booty a little 🍑).

What stores do you shop at?

I’m inclined to Urban Outfitters just because sizing is consistent (and I value consistency). But I shop local a lot, and living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, I find adorable boutiques on almost a daily basis. You can shop my feed here, and find some things I’m loving here!
