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 […]

Wearing This – Writer, Teacher, Secretary Outfit

Going from food blogging to lifestyle blogging is harder than it seems. I’m so used to being behind the camera. The opportunity to photograph food always presents itself. We all need to eat everyday, right? But do we all need to dress like we give an F? No. So to put on makeup and a […]

The Blogger Exchange Spring Tea Party

Reichel (CopyCatChic) and Jessica (HejDoll) are two lovely ladies from some of my blogger groups. They hosted the daintiest, prettiest, afternoon tea party the other weekend attending by local bloggers including myself. The party was sponsored by some very cool brands from decor to food to favors and the ladies did their finest job in […]

Warriors vs. Blazers and a Trip to the Nike Employee Store – Portland, Oregon

Last month, my husband Phil flew to Portland with his friends for a weekend trip. I asked him to take some photos and do a few guest posts for me. Here’s the first.— With a family hookup at the Nike store in Portland, I was able to visit the Nike Employee Store and everything I […]

Whole Foods Natural Glow Makeup & Pampering Event – Los Altos

One of my favorite events to cover each year is Whole Foods’ annual beauty sale. The 2014 and 2015 events in Campbell were such fun experiences. I was already very excited for this year’s event when they mailed me these baby and skin care samples. There are still two more events this weekend so make […]

Whole Foods Natural Glow Makeup and Pampering Event – Bay Area

ย Around this time of year, I look forward to the Whole Body by Whole Foods annual pampering events. In 2014, there was an event promoting a 10 Days of Beauty sale at the Campbell location. I had a blast getting my nails done and noshing on good wholesome food. For 2015, I enjoyed getting my […]

Poshmark’s Poshfest Posh Party – San Francisco Design Center

Just a little post about last night’s Poshfest. Poshmark is a platform (like Etsy) for buying and selling fashion to a community of users. I could sell my gently used skinny jeans which no longer fit my new mom body, for example. Plenty of people who use it sell designer items which had cost them […]

Whole Body by Whole Foods – Make Up Break Up

It’s that time again for Whole Foods’ personal care department, Whole Body, to launch their spring sales season. Last year, it kicked off with the 10 Days of Beauty preview event at the Whole Body store in Campbell. This year’s event is the Make Up Break Up – inspiring everyone to break up with their […]

Vietnam – Photo Diary

Vietnam was a trip, I mean that in the hallucinogenic mushroom sense. I expected Earth shattering epiphanies that would alter the course of my entire future and dig deep into the core of my identity as an Asian immigrant. Mostly what I got was hours upon hours of swinging around in hammocks strung on trees […]
