On My Radar: Scalloped edge swimsuit for Summer

I’ve never been a huge fan of one piece swimsuits, just because for a small and short person like me it ends up flattening me more than flattering me… but I found one recently that I’m kind of obsessed with and wanted to share with you in case you wanted to give one piece swimsuits another chance. I got this one from Marshall’s (It’s from…

Crazy Rich Asians full cast with predictions- who is playing who?

As I write this, Crazy Rich Asians the movie is in production in Singapore (also in Malaysia). I wrote a blogpost on who I would cast in the movie four years ago (August 2013) when I first read the book that summer. Then it was announced that it would be in fact made into a movie. As you can imagine, I was more than ecstatic…

Gallant x Tablo x Eric Nam- Cave Me In Review

A few months ago towards the end of 2016, I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Eric Nam for the Kore Asian Media Annual issue. I wasn’t a super fan when I met him at the time (helps to maintain objectivity) but after speaking with him for about an hour, I walked away from our conversation with a hunch that this guy was going to…

On My Radar: Ear Threaders

Honestly didn’t even know these were called ear threaders until about a week ago. Then I saw them while I was at a mall with my roommate helping her decide if she wanted to return some things. This pair caught my eye because it reminded me of a necklace I already had at home so I thought if anything, it could match. Either way, I’ve found…

On My Radar: New Apartment Furnishings

I’m still getting settled into my apartment on the westside. Believe it or not, when I moved to LA I only had 4 suitcases with me. Since then I’ve been moving around with just those 4 suitcases, a lamp and a mattress/mattress frame. Now that I’m at this place for more than just a few months, I’m making it feel more like home by furnishing…

On My Radar: Peach and Lily’s Ask Lily service

Don’t be fooled- great lighting and i’m wearing coverup! I spy my shingle scars though. It’s been a year since I moved to LA and I’m still struggling to get used to some things. My skin and the climate is one of them. There’s definitely something different about the air and water in LA. My east-coast born and bred skin and hair have never been drier…

On my radar: Me Before You

I saw the trailer for Me Before You recently and within minutes I had tears rolling down my cheeks. Maybe it’s the Ed Sheeran song (his songs always get me). Either way it stirred a lot of emotions and I knew I had to go see this movie when it came out. [instagram url=https://www.instagram.com/p/BBf3CnKSNbD/] A friend of mine gave me a kindle fire recently, and…

On My Radar: Skin Laundry, Los Angeles

Just came back from a weekend in NorCal, still sore from crossfit (my first time yesterday) and with my skin looking more irritated, dry and tired than usual. I’ve struggled with acne since my early teens and it seems that my skin hasn’t been acclimating well to the west coast “winters” so I booked an appointment at Skin Laundry before the weekend since I knew I’d…

On my radar: Zen Pencils

Someone sent me a comic that described exactly how I felt. And then I spent the next few minutes clicking around the site that it came from. Usually when I click around aimlessly on a site, I end up regretting it but every moment spent on this site, Zen Pencils was totally worth it. They’re quotes in cartoon form. If you couldn’t tell, I’m kind…

Holiday wish list

With the Holidays here I can’t help but think about the special people in my life and the things I would want/get for them. A little late for this post, and a handful of these items are on backorder but it doesn’t hurt to imagine, right? FOR MY SISTER: A Little Bits Toy Kit. Yea sure, the photos on the site show little kids playing with…
