Sporty Geek

Hi ya’ll! Long time no post. I’m trying to catch up here. This particular look is from a few months ago and I just never got around to using it. This was a period of time when I was obsessing over beanies, leg warmers, and long socks. The weather got too warm...and at this rate, it doesn’t look like it’s getting any cooler. I figured it’s now or never to post. So here it is...I’m a geek! :)

So what’s your body type? I’m the athletic type. I’m not your typical skinny minny Asian. This mama got some muscles! I’ve always been pretty sporty my whole life so I have an athletic built. I try to balance this out by wearing more cute, sexy and feminine styles...or else I end up looking too masculine. I think no matter what type of body you have, it’s fun to explore different options. Don’t be afraid to play around with different looks. You don’t necessarily have to dress your age...well, just as long as it’s classy & not trashy! Heee! Life is too short to worry about what people think of how you look. Be yourself. xx

Flirty in Fuchsia

Oh, Valentine’s Day. That dreaded day for the singles..and the oh so crazy expensive hallmark holiday for the couples. Why does Valentine’s Day have to be a competition of who gets the most extravagant bouquet and gifts? I think sometimes it’s the most subtle things that your partner does that makes it special. And it does not have to be expressed solely on this particular day...which is ridiculously expensive. I feel everyday should be a celebration of love. The love of life.

How was your Valentine’s Day? Me? I was shooting a commercial, so I didn’t get to do anything in particular (saved money yippeee!). I was originally planning on having a sushi dinner at my fave Sushi Gen (best sushi in town!) in Little Tokyo with a friend but I didn’t camera wrap in time. I spent my Valentine’s evening on set having a 2nd dinner meal which consisted of catered chinese food with my fellow actors and assistant director. We even toasted each other with water bottles. How romantic! lol. Whether single, in a relationship, happily married (or not) or ‘it’s complicated’ like me, I certainly hope you took the time to really love yourself. Loving yourself in the sense of taking the time to do something special just for yourself. Could be anything from taking a romantic bubble bath, eating that decadent dessert you’ve been craving, embarking on a beautiful solo hike...or simply to just doll yourself up and look pretty. Have some “me” time. Nurture this self love, because one must learn to love oneself before loving another.

So in honor of this lovey dovey day, I opted for some pop of colors in my ensemble. A fuchsia hot pink blazer with yellow lace blouse, paired with cute floral shorts. Cute and flirty. Just the way I like it. xx

Summer in January

Free People hoodie vest, Solemio crochet tank, Klique B short, Jeffrey Campbell boots, Oliver Peoples sunglasses, Urban Outfitters socks, Stacy Sterling necklace and bracelets

January is the new July! The weather in January has been so warm, that it actually felt like summer. So surprisingly enough, I’ve spent most of my days out by the beach and even took my bike out for a ride in Venice. When in Venice, one must dress the part! So I looked to the closet for my interpretation of boho-chic style to fit right in. Not too shabby? After a nice bike ride, I always end up hanging around Abbot Kinney - from all the unique shops, to my favorite Intelligentsia for my much need caffeine fix, and to some of the great dining experiences such as Gjelina. If you ever get a chance, spend a day out here and live the California dream...with the warm weather (during winter!), the perfect breeze, palm trees swaying, and especially when you can witness some breathtaking sunsets over the horizon.

And to all my fellow Asians, a Happy Chinese New Year! This past thursday eve, my family & I celebrated the Lunar New Year at my grandmother’s place. She is 94 and still going strong. She made one spectacular feast and just because it’s the Year of the Horse, doesn’t mean one should eat like a horse. Well I did, and unfortunately got sick for the next few days. I have a tendency to overeat sometimes, especially when the food is delicious and homemade! I love food and that is why I workout like a fiend. Maybe I should start posting some of my workout wear? xx
