Instagram accounts that will inspire you

I am moved by words sometimes more than photos. Photos are beautiful yes, but words make me feel. There are a few accounts that I am not disappointed by whenever I stop by their page or whenever something that they post shows up on my feed.  Today I wanted to share them with you. They’re much more than your typical quote accounts in that they…

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…

Bruce Lee 75

Today, November 27th, would’ve been the 75th birthday of the man and legend, Bruce Lee.  I haven’t watched all of his movies and I don’t know every detail of his life (though I did see “Kung Fu,” a play based on him), but I think it’s pretty obvious why I (among many others) respect, appreciate and admire him. Before he passed in 1973, the legendary martial artist played…

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…

LA vision board

I’ve had quite the imagination ever since I was young. I used to go through catalogs that advertised houses and home goods, clipping out items for “my dream home,” flipping through magazines for photos that caught my eye and words that described the kind of person I wanted to be. There was even a point when every inch of my room during high school was…

On my Radar: Pamela Barsky’s pouches

I was on my way to a cafe in Lower East Side when I decided I’d take a roundabout route. I’m rarely in the neighborhood so I figured why not? You never know. It was definitely a grittier neighborhood than what I’m used to. The streets were uneven and cracked, dirty puddles were everywhere and the streets were empty, even for 10 AM in the morning. As…

Hopeful Romantic in “Marry Me”

This past weekend I found myself watching a movie that you’ve probably never heard of. It’s one of my favorite movies, partly because it satisfies all of my hopeless romantic fantasies, but mostly because it is able to express my thoughts in the most direct (albeit cliche) way possible. Lucy Liu who plays Rae Carter sums up my optimistic view on relationships: Mom: So what are…

13 of life’s winning moments

As you may have noticed both on instagram and facebook, I am a huge quote junkie. Naturally, out of all the things I saw and took pictures of in Asia (and trust me I took a LOT), I’ll start by sharing “13 of life’s winning moments” as seen on Hong Kong streets. Even though at one point during my trip I got dehydrated from all…

On my Radar: The Everygirl Shop

Saw this on instagram yesterday and was immediately obsessed. I’m usually the person who gets the more functional than fashionable phone case  (think: otterbox) but these are not just pretty, they’re inspirational. I’m drawn to anything with both substance and style. Also, I’m a fan of these posters. Unique quotes and beautiful, simple design. I might just have to treat myself…. or put it on…
