Macy’s rings in the Year of the Snake

The first Lunar New Year reception that I attended this year was at Macy’s in Herald Square. Macy’s!- A familiar building that I’ve passed and visited so many times, now has new memories.


NYFW and CNY collide

On the first day of Fashion week- February 7, I found myself having to dress in an outfit that would go seamlessly from interning during the day to a Lunar New Year Celebration at night. With such a hectic/busy schedule, I was sure to keep this in mind: My first fashion week outfit:

Good Luck Ritual

Just before the beginning of the Year of the Snake and the craziness that is Fashion week, I made a trip to Chinatown to pay a visit to the Mahayana Buddhist temple. I first came here  for school with my East Asian Art and Civilization course about 2 years ago and ever since, I try to stop by whenever I’m in the neighborhood to get…

way overdue

it’s kind of amazing how quickly the past 10 days have flown by. (really? 10 days?) It was only until yesterday that I finally got to sit still and collect my thoughts on everything that has happened, so bear with me as I recount my adventures from the past week(s) Even if I don’t post here on the blog, I’m always posting on instagram and…

5 days, 5 lessons

Last week was the first week/beginning of what I would consider to be…. my dream internship. I’ve only been in the office for 5 days in total so far, but it feels like I’ve been there for a month; I’ve done and learned so much already. After a full day of interning and attending a night class to finish off the day, I come home…

Mission and a Vision

Ever since freshman year, I’ve made vision boards for myself. I think it’s one thing to think about what you want, but another thing to see those goals and dreams everyday as you get one step closer to achieving them. I’m in the process of redoing my vision boards (I try to update them every few months because what I want often changes/gets clearer) so I’ve been perusing…

wordplay

Wow. So tomorrow is the first day of my last semester of college. Winter break flew by! A lot has happened in just the past week. Some of the things that come to mind: I took the time to write a long letter to a friend, I lost my phone in the city and I had an amazing long heart to heart conversation with someone…

Leather and Lace

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big fan of Anne Hathaway’s version of Catwoman. Although it wasn’t in the form of a leather skirt like I recommend here, I incorporated some leather into my outfit last night to channel my inner Selina Kyle.

We found Hope in a Loveless place

It’s easy to get caught up in the New York hustle: we all have our own things to do, places to go, people to see. Sometimes it really does seem like a jungle out there where it is every man for himself. We often put ourselves first or become selfish and we allow relationships with others to fizzle on the backburner. In the aftermath of…
