Trend Spotting | Vintage Maps


I've been itching to travel abroad since the new year began. Dreaming of going back to the motherland this Fall (up and down the entire Vietnam countryside) with all my besties, but in the meantime allowing my thoughts to randomly drift off to destinations I've already visited and those I've yet to see. 

Food Porn Friday | Bottega Louie | DTLA

Equal parts hip, downtown LA eatery, equal parts celebrity sightings it when Laker game nights call for early dinners of Portobello mushroom fries (MY ABSOLUTE FAVE), gourmet wood-fired pizzas (try the Burrata!), and a smorgasbord of delectable house-made desserts to finish it all off. 

Scenes from a Refinery 29 Hpnotiq Party | Las Vegas

So late last year (December 1st to be exact), Refinery 29 and luxe liquor brand Hpnotiq hosted this contest to see whose street style would win them a party in their hometown just in time for New Year's Eve. I literally scoured my archives for the best group shot of my Skittles sisters in our boldest and brightest party frocks, uploaded that sartorial sucker to R29, begged and pleaded to all my FB family/ friends/ community/ strangers for their votes, waited week after week to see our numbers skyrocket through the roof et Voilà...Here we are, one month later, lucky (and persistent) enough to be awarded the biggest, baddest Chinese New Year's bash in the City of Sin and basking in the glory of what can be accomplished when a group of party-savvy women put their minds to it. 

Trend Spotting | Pops of Color

With Lunar New Year looming just around the bend, I always make it a point to rearrange the corners of my home (and subsequently my mind) to mix things up a bit. It's totally a superstitious Asian thing (one I buy into every January it seems) to clean up the mess left behind by another bad year gone by. Yes 2011, I'm talkin' to YOU...

Trend Spotting | Tangerine Tango

Nothing like a bold, brash burst of this orangey-reddish hue to get my Monday started off right. This year's pick for Pantone color of the year has been seen on everything from runways to interiors, to home goods and bloggers alike. I'm already on board as scarlet's sassier little sis takes center stage this spring. Can't believe I'm saying this (still a bit sick, I think it's the meds talking), but can winter be over already???
