My Fictional Crushes

As an avid reader, I tend to fall in love with fictional characters from books and I know I'm not alone (Mr. Darcy anyone??) Sometimes I think books have ruined my love life because no one in real life can measure up! Here are some of my fictional crushes that have skewed my expectation of what men should be (also to my boyfriend Brian - take note! 😉)

Winter 2016/2017 Favorites

Good riddance, winter - Spring is officially here! I have been so done with the cold, the snow, and the dry air that come with it. Even my outfit choices get difficult when the weather won't cooperate for blogging purposes. Let's hear it for Spring!!
To send off winter properly, I have collected a list of things that I really did enjoy this past season. I featured a lot of these items either in outfit posts or on social media so they shouldn't come as a surprise but I think this would be a good time to reflect on what I used so that going forth, I can keep this post in mind when I don't know what to wear, what to repurchase, etc. 


Spring 2017 Closet Essentials

Even though it's supposedly Spring, the past few days have felt only like the harshest of winters. We got a snowstorm and while it wasn't enough snow to close offices, it came with a biting cold that made going outside in any of my Spring clothes impossible. 
I'm hoping that with writing this post, I can passive-aggressively encourage Mother Nature to just Spring already! Here are a few things that I am planning to wear the crap out of once the weather starts to cooperate:

Book Club: Big Little Lies

SynopsisBig Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:

Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).

Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.
New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.
Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive


Product Review: Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Blooming Fit

I think anyone who's interested in makeup at all has heard by now how great Korean beauty products are. I've dabbled in Korean skincare products with great results so I thought I would venture into Korean cosmetics. As a Korean myself, I figure I would have better luck matching my skin tone with these products than I would at a drugstore. I picked up this BB cream by Etude House after I had great results with their BB powder foundation. Here are my thoughts on this:

March 2017 Bucket List

We have a conference we're organizing at work this week so I haven't been able to post much lately. This is not how I wanted March to start, but here we are.
I did want to get this particular post up - I really like writing bucket lists for myself every month. It's a great way (at least for me), to keep track of the big picture things and make sure I'm leaving enough time in my life to get these things done.
