More Similar Than Different & Other Travel Reflections

More Similar Than Different & Other Travel Reflections

Recently I traveled to Cleveland, Ohio for a few days. Not going to lie, my expectations weren’t particularly high, but as all things are relative of course, I was pleasantly surprised by it and the trip gave me a chance to reflect on traveling in general. Here are some of my thoughts on traveling: 1 / Food is history. Landmarks are walled off for protection, monuments get erected, but food is something that reveals history in a subtle but undeniable way. This idea is nothing new as seen by Netflix’s extensive food documentary library, but I have been noticing it…

Every Little Thing’s Gonna be Alright

Every Little Thing’s Gonna be Alright

I’ve been putting off this post entirely too long now because it’s not a fun topic to write, or even think about. I’m currently sitting with a coffee in the cafe of the Taipei hotel we’re calling home for six nights. My boyfriend and I have been best friends for almost four years, partners for more than three, roommates for almost two. We can’t count on two hands the number of countries we have traveled to together (thanks to those Caribbean countries we visited on a cruise :p), and now we’re on one last big trip before the start of…

Sunday Thoughts #4 // Stop & Smell the Flowers

Sunday Thoughts #4 // Stop & Smell the Flowers

It’s time for another Sunday thoughts, yay! I’m currently sitting on my couch with the balcony door cracked open. The breeze is a little chilly but summer is unmistakably coming, as golden sun rays are still shining in at 7pm. I had a great day today hanging out with my mom around Beverly Hills, after dragging myself to a Pilates class in the morning. It’s just one of those days where I feel genuinely content and at ease. These days don’t happen as often as they should even though I honestly don’t have a lot of legitimate complaints. I’m always…

The Interview Outfit

The Interview Outfit

I’ve been planning on more content revolving around professional wear for a while now. Last summer I posted about two summer work looks, but those were everyday looks for an office with no strict dress code, whereas I really wanted to give ideas for what to wear to an interview. I had the idea that I would showcase a few looks that would apply to different professional environments, from traditional consulting firms to hip advertising agencies. However, I have realized that sometimes the more I plan for an idea, the longer it takes me to execute it. So I just…

Taking a Breather – Part II

Taking a Breather – Part II

Exactly a year ago today I put up a post called Taking a Breather after having had a really busy and stressful month. I wrote about things that helped me relax that included cooking, blogging, trip planning, and shopping. Funnily, I find myself in a very similar situation on this day. I took a week off in Maui this month which should have left me utterly relaxed, but the rest of the weeks were more stressful than usual. I wouldn’t go as far as saying I’m going through a crisis as much as I’m just experiencing a normal, probably healthy,…
