Growing up, I was told to be gentle with my skin because if I rub it or do too much with it, I will have more wrinkles when I grow up. I adhered to this somewhat growing up. As I got older and my skincare routine included more steps, I started to grow weary of this “tip.” I asked myself, how is it that I’m doing more with my skin and yet I look better?!Read More
I am a reformed beauty product junkie.
Don't get me wrong, I still LOVE trying new products but I am being smarter with my choices and money now. Gone are the days where I buy things on a whim, because it is endorsed by a celebrity, or because it has cool packaging (lame I know.) The whole trial and error thing is a huge waste of money, not to mention super disappointing when you try something for the first time and it doesn't work for you. Here are some ways to make smarter beauty products purchases:Read More
I have always been a multi-tasker but after I became a mom, I really had to kick this multi-tasking thing in high gear! I realized I now have less time in general and most of it was used on someone that needs a lot of attention and assistance with every aspect of her life.

When I tell people about my fears of aging, they usually respond with "Oh, you have nothing to worry about, you are Asian and you will still look young when you get old." Flattering, Somewhat. But let's not just sit back and rely on my Asian genes.Read More
The hair, the makeup, the dress…your skin? That’s right, whether you’re the bride-to-be, a bridesmaid or a VIP guest, you want your skin to be as smooth and flawless as the wedding. But how do you get your complexion to say “I do” for the big day too?Read More
I love keeping things out of sight. Visual clutter annoys me to no end. Although my daughter is only 18 months old, she has acquired a lot of things, she might even have more things than me. In my quest to hide things and yet still have a craft project for her, I found an awesome wooden box for $3.00 at the dollar store. Pretty sweet deal to have a storage solution and not yet ANOTHER piece of paper covered in paint.Read More
