OOTD: Featuring Henri Bendel, DPiper Twins, and H&M

OOTD: Featuring Henri Bendel, DPiper Twins, and H&M

First of all–why do I keep moving to places that have winters? I HATE THE COLD. I HATE THE SNOW (like the mailman from Hey Arnold…). But I’m always drawn to cities that have frigid winters. Please let me know your recommendations for metropolitan, tropical cities full of sunshine so that I can get my […]

OOTD: Not Too Grown for Mickey Mouse

OOTD: Not Too Grown for Mickey Mouse

I grew up in a Disney household—we had all the VHS tapes, sing-along cassettes, stuffed animals, and anything else that could be Disney-fied. Mickey has been my favorite cartoon character for as long as I can remember, to the point where I used it as my alias in middle school when signing notes passed amongst […]

Trinkets, Murals, Souvenirs: Korean Tings in Insadong

Trinkets, Murals, Souvenirs: Korean Tings in Insadong

I love how many Asian cities with deep histories are mapped out: turn left and you’ll see skyscrapers; turn right, and an ancient palace comes into view. In a city like Seoul, which is super modern and densely populated, it’s nice to see cultural areas preserved and celebrated. One neighborhood rich in cultural activities is Insadong, […]

Korean Hanbok in Insadong, Seoul

Korean Hanbok in Insadong, Seoul

Even though I lived in Seoul for a year, I never got to cross “wear hanbok” off my Korea bucket list, so when my mom came to visit earlier this year, we had a fun day of dress up in Insadong, a neighborhood in Seoul. The traditional form of dress in Korea is called hanbok. […]

OOTD: Tigers!….No Lions, No Bears

OOTD: Tigers!….No Lions, No Bears

Growing up in NC, I’ve never really been exposed to bone-chilling winters. After living in Korea though, where public transportation is key, I realized that a long-sleeved shirt and a non-down, non-wool winter coat was not gonna cut it. Freezing is not fun, nor is it cute. So these days, I’m layering with my heat-tech clothes, […]

Water Bikes at Soesokkak Estuary in Jeju Island

This post is a continuation of our trip to Jeju earlier this year, which also includes itinerary ideas for anyone planning a trip to Jeju Island! Jeju is a great destination, especially if you live in Korea. It’s cheap to get there, the weather is great, and there’s an activity for everyone: from the lazy […]

Outfit of the Day: Back to School Vibes

Outfit of the Day: Back to School Vibes

I was talking to my husband the other day and he said that summer makes him nostalgic—memories of running around with your friends, no school, playing games, nothing to worry about but where to get snacks and how late you can stay outside with your friends. Summer doesn’t evoke those memories in me at all. […]
