$200 of Andalou Naturals Skincare Products from Whole Foods

 Have you ever wondered whether those Instagram giveaways were real? Well Whole Foods runs real giveaways because I just won one! A few weeks ago, they hosted a giveaway for a $200 prize pack of Andalou Naturals skincare products. I picked up my package in store recently and am super excited about how much product […]

Pregnant – My 5 Go-To Maternity Looks

Most people think maternity clothes are unnecessary and you can just find jersey maxi dresses or live in baggy shirts and yoga pants. I think differently for this pregnancy. At 6 months, my bump is already as big as a singleton pregnancy at 9 months. The full belly band on some of my pants are […]

Wearing This – I Have a Pineapple Dress

The pineapple pen song was stuck in my head for a week after it first went viral online. A song hadn’t been so annoyingly catchy to me since TI – “Whatever you like.” I forgot about the pineapple pen song for a while until I got this dress, which has pineapples on it. And then […]

Wearing This – Fall Colors in Spring

Did anyone’s Asian mom drag the family out to some nice park, preferably with a pond in it, to take some posed family photos? Back in the day, Dad set up the tripod or the family would split up and take turns in photos. That’s definitely how I felt as I sat for these photos […]

Wearing This – Athleisure, Fitbit, and Nike

You guys, I don’t quite understand the concept of athleisure. It’s athletic but also leisure wear. Isn’t that just a lazy Sunday morning outfit? Well here I am taking a stab at the concept. Literally being athletic and then sitting leisurely while wearing the same outfit. Actually, I dress like this whenever I’m outside of […]

Attending This – Whole Foods Beauty Brunch

In the past few years, I’ve been introduced to some excellent all natural beauty products through Whole Foods’ annual beauty event. In 2014, I was introduced to Zoya nail polish which was ok to use during pregnancy. At the Make Up Break Up event in 2015, I got Juice Beauty lip gloss which I still […]

Wearing This – Playground Fashion

The other day, I put a sweatshirt on my son and he yelled his disapproval. Then I changed him into a hoodie and he smiled happily. So I guess we’re heading into an age of making our own choices now…at least I get to reflect on these playground outfits I put him in.  The playground […]

Wearing This – Young Professional and Unemployed

Look at this young professional sitting on a bench. She looks cool and important but in reality she is unemployed. Recently, I experienced my first lay off and it sucked. Interviewing for jobs while not having one in hand and fighting the hordes of competition in the Silicon Valley was mentally draining. I kept busy […]

Wearing This – Coffee Shop Style

I like to think of myself as a writer and that I have important things to create when I tell my husband he’s on Daddy duty for a few hours because I need to “focus” at a coffee shop. In reality, I just like the idea of being productive outside the home but not working […]

Wearing This – Leather and Denim and Rosewood

The Rosewood Sandhill Hotel is such a dream. It’s beautiful and luxurious in a style that really appeals to me. Modern artwork on the walls. High end retailers in the halls. Sprawling grounds in a quiet neighborhood. In 2016, I was invited to a special Taste of Japan dinner at this hotel. The experience solidified […]
