STTA: Perks of being a Nobody

I’m not “someone” yet. I’m not a CEO. I’m not a celebrity. I don’t have an impressive job title. I don’t even have 5000 instagram followers. I have a pretty rare last name, but I’m otherwise a pretty normal person. I of course strive to be successful in the future, but in the meantime, I’m happy being a nobody. A normal person in the pursuit of…

It’s not the journey or the destination…

With any life change, transition or awe inspiring moment, cliche sounding quotes and sayings are sure to follow. Some fitting examples of inspiration guiding my relocation to LA from NYC: There are a million sayings that can apply to this LA adventure of mine… One quote in particular that has really struck me is: Not because it’s the most relevant, but because I actually kind of…

New writing routine

Writing is something I really struggle with. Can you tell from all the gaps of time in between posts? A bit ironic considering how I have a blog, right? It’s not because I have nothing to write about, but rather because it’s hard for me to put pen to paper and articulate the idea in a way that will make sense to me or someone…

Editorial of the week: couture dreams

Ling Yue is a model I’m not too familiar with, but I quickly forget that upon scanning these photos from the October issue of L’Officiel China. Aptly titled couture dreams, the editorial entrances with dreamy haute couture looks from the Fall collections of Armani Prive, Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture and Chanel Haute Couture, just to name a few. Every photo is like a work…

Editorial of the week: Modern Day In the Mood for Love

Oh boy do I love a great fashion editorial. I came across this editorial on a blog, rolala loves (who seems to share my love for fashion editorials), and was instantly wooed, especially because it pays an elegant tribute to one of the most aesthetically beautiful movies I’ve seen: In the Mood for Love. Whether or not you’re familiar with director Wong Kar Wai’s work, you’ll love…

Song Hye Gyo for J. Estina S/S 2014 Campaign

Song Hye Gyo is one of my favorite Korean actresses. Ever since I saw her acting alongside Won Bin (one of my favorite Korean actors) in the Korean drama Autumn in my Heart , I’ve been a fan both of her acting (she reduces me to tears) and inimitable beauty (she’s my height- 5’3)! Here she is effortlessly chic in J. Estina’s Spring/Summer 2014 campaign. Even…

Feast your eyes on General Tso

Surely you’ve heard of General Tso’s Chicken… In fact you’ve probably ordered it before. The fried boneless chicken in a sweet and spicy sauce, found in Chinese restaurants across the United States…  I’ll admit it was one of my favorites growing up. mmm I have since moved onto more authentic Chinese dishes: dan dan noodles, xiao long bao, char siu bao…ever since I found out that…

Things I wish I knew when I was 22

I love getting random emails and comments from readers.  In my last post, I even offered my style advice to a reader. The people who stumble across my blog often make my day 🙂 Not too long ago I got an email from someone who read my Crazy Rich Asians blog post and I eventually asked him for some advice. (Yea kind of random, but…
