Traveling – The Photographers I Have Been

As a food blogger, it was sometimes disappointing to have put so much effort into a thorough review, a well balanced photo, or an in depth vacation recap, only to find that people respond most to photos of ramen and burgers. There was no space in my food blog for my photography work like the […]

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 […]

Traveling – Two Meals in Half Moon Bay

Seafood in seaside towns are often some of the best. This is why we only wanted to eat seafood during our short stay in Half Moon Bay. Here are two notable meals we had. The Fisherman’s Taverna Right off the main street heading in to the town was a corner lot that looked much like […]

Michelin Star and Other Good Restaurants in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is super rich with Michelin starred eateries. There are so many restaurants in general so the chances of boasting more Michelin star winners is higher. I’ve been to Hong Kong twice and had a chance to try some of the winning restaurants. Of course, I can’t afford or get in to the 3 […]

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 […]

Traveling – One Day in Half Moon Bay

Wedding anniversaries in increments of 5 or 10 years sound like a big deal. When we passed our 5 year mark, it didn’t feel that big. I wonder when anything will feel important enough for me to splurge on a meal at The French Laundry? We’ve never been big on celebrating things on time although […]

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 […]

Traveling – Hong Kong Sights and Scenery

This very lucky little boy has been able to travel a few times so far. Seriously though, take advantage of free flights before 2. It’ll start to cost a lot to travel with kids later. We visited family in Hong Kong in December 2016 and I was able to capture so many good photos of […]

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 […]

Traveling – Hong Kong Food

In my limited overseas travel, I find that my favorite foods from other countries tend to be fruits and vegetables. Some are simply too perishable to transport and others just taste differently in a different country. Thai green beans tasted so different in Thailand in an indescribable way. I mean, we have lots of green […]
