    What I Eat in A Day!

    Hello! I have been meaning to do a “what I eat in a day” type of post for a while, but I always end up forgetting to photograph my food (in my case, the camera does not eat first). This time around, I thought I’d give it a go! I generally have a routine when it comes to food on workdays, and that’s the most reflective of my diet right now. Weekends are more of a free for all because of sleeping in/staying up later, ordering takeout or baking. Because of my weekday routine, I’m more intentional about what I’m eating and try to maintain a healthy diet as much…

    See You Never, 2020 | Lessons Learned

    Let’s talk 2020. This time last year, I was naively optimistic. 2020 was supposed to be the year of more celebrations, opportunities, and travel. We can’t really predict the future, now can we? Instead, this year was quite the opposite of what I had in mind. I have spent the majority of this year, in my room, in front of my desk, probably on zoom calls. And if I wasn’t working, I was probably in the kitchen… baking or eating. I’m sure everyone can agree this year did not go as planned. To say it bluntly… it sucked. I was anxious and fatigued through it all. Sometimes, I wonder if…

    Outfit Ideas | 5 Dressy Holiday Looks

    One of my favorite parts about the holiday season is dressing up! Dresses, heels, sparkles, and glam — this is the time of year when I get truly excited about it all! Unfortunately, there won’t be much of that this year, with the exception of my family’s Christmas photoshoot– which is our tradition. Usually done a day or 2 before Christmas, my family and I get dressed in our fashionable and glamorous outfits and take photos around our tree and decor. We’ve been doing this since I was a young kid, and it’s a no-brainer to-do for the holidays. In college, I always had to make sure I brought home…

    Holiday Baking & Cookie Boxes

    December is in full swing, and you know what that means? Holiday baking! It’s been a while since I’ve done a more personal post. I hope everyone is able to safely celebrate the upcoming holidays, or at least take some time off to rest, do something you love doing, or indulge in some sweet treats (take a peek here if you want some ideas). The December holiday season is the best, especially for baking. Chocolate, gingerbread, peppermint… Christmas flavors are some of my favorites! I’ve seen so many adorable baking creations on Instagram — from creative cakes, brownies, and chocolates. I’m more of a cookie fan, so you’ll always find…

    2020 Holiday Gift Inspiration!

    One of my main goals when gift-giving? Gift something that the recipient will find useful. I think we’re all guilty of giving little trinkets or random items when we’re not sure what to get someone (and honestly, I’ve learned, when in doubt, just get them chocolates instead. Check this out for some ideas). When an item I gift gets a good amount of use, that’s when I know I’ve done a thoughtful job at gifting. I try to stay within a budget or aim for a price range, (aka, constantly browse the sale section), but sometimes, investing a little more for something that the recipient will truly appreciate and use…

    5 Seattle Businesses to Shop At During the Holidays | Sweet Tooth Edition

    Have you started shopping for holiday presents yet? Normally, I tend to wait until the last minute to shop for presents, but given this year the holidays are going to look a little different, I wanted to plan ahead to make sure my gifts will arrive in time. One of my goals when buying gifts is to be thoughtful and intentional. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t consider myself a good gift giver. I extensively go back and forth on my ideas for weeks… that’s probably why I end up getting them at the last minute. One factor to consider is how to support small and/or local businesses. It’s so…

    Solo Photography | 5 Tips to Get the Perfect Shot

    Ever since I started this blog, I’ve been learning a ton about content creation and photography — particularly how to do it on my own. In the world of social media, there is so much content produced each day— it was naive of me to think that this would be something I’d wouldn’t need to learn more about for the blog! Anyway, given the few opportunities to travel and increasing social distancing measures, I’ve found myself trying creative ways to take photos of myself… by myself. This has been quite a challenge for me because it’s not something I’ve had to do before. I’ve been SO fortunate (and extremely spoiled)…

    Sweater Weather | 5 Favorite Fall Looks

    Happy weekend! I can’t believe it’s November — the time is going by really fast! These days, I’ve just been spending most of my time at home, apart from the occasional errand run. So, it’s been a lot of athleisure and loungewear for me. But, I LOVE fall fashion, especially sweaters! It’s definitely one of my favorite parts of the colder months. I miss getting cute and cozy when I’m out and about so I thought it would be a fun activity to put together a few fall looks! I definitely got inspired after playing around with my sweaters and I wanted to share some of my favorite looks: Sweater:…

    Pursuing our Passion Projects | I’m on a Podcast!

    Hello!! I hope you are having a great week! I got to take part in a cool project this week — I was on a podcast! One of my friends from high school, Calvin, just started a podcast called “The Novice Experience,” where he chats with young adults and students about their opportunities and challenges in life, school, and career. It was a lot of fun being a part of Calvin’s new project and I learned a lot about the podcast making process — definitely, an awesome way to connect with individuals in a socially distanced way. 🙂 In my episode, I talked about my transition from college to my…

    The Ultimate Adidas Gift Guide!

    Hello, happy weekend!! How is it mid-October already?! I don’t know about you, but the fall months always feel like a blur. One minute it’s the end of summer, and the next, you’re already thinking about all of the holidays. I know we still have weeks to go until we start thinking about holiday shopping. But, with the weather getting colder (sweater weather!!!), the days getting shorter, and Halloween right around the corner, the holidays are literally going to sneak up on us in no time. I often struggle to with last-minute gift-giving, so I have to start thinking about them early if I want to find the perfect gifts…
