Chinese New Year (CNY) brings me many of my fondest childhood memories, so I wanted to share this part of my life on my blog, despite how different it is from my usual posts.

She spreads awareness about anti-bullying through her catchy songs and it was an honor… View Post

Now off to the fun stuff : ) On Friday, I worked from a cafe in Berkeley called Artis (and the latte was too cute so I had… View Post

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that the month of February brings out the girly girl in me (well, even more of the girly girl haha). I find myself fantasizing about princessy moments and watching more romantic comedies than I normally do. It’s also lovely that everything is PINK! You know what I’m talking about – Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! I previously blogged about Valentine’s gift and date ideas, and today I am collaborating with Sandra Tsai from When She Wanders to show you our adorable Valentine’s treats. She baked some delicious earl grey shortbread… View Post
