Fashion Series: Summer, part 2. (Rompers and Maxi Dresses)

Rompers are my second boyfriend. They’re just so comfy and cool, and they are totally IN right now. They’re what I’ll be wearing this summer when I’m not at the pool or going out in my heels and my hubby’s classic ’69 Ford. Actually scratch that. I’ll for sure be wearing them then. Because, what’s… read more

Fashion Series: Summer, part 1. (The Sassy Classy Swimsuit)

Ok, so when I said that my sister and I were doing a fashion series together, I didn’t realize how impossible it would be to get us both in the same spot for multiple photo shoots at multiple locations and dates, over the next couple of months.

My Sister and I: Fashion Series, Spring

Ever since this blog’s beginnings, I’ve been getting inquiries and requests to do fashion, which is weird, because ever since I’ve been born, I’ve been super intentional about being seen in public places with my fuzzy slippers, my deep set, no-makeup “Asian eyes”, and fluffy sweats.  It always seemed crazy to me that anyone would be interested in that.

Last month, I wrote about Ashleigh, and the beautiful balancer that she is. It was such a pleasure to highlight her life, and to see the praise and… read more

Celebrating M.O.M: Ashleigh, the Beautiful Balancer.

I am thrilled to bring you the first of my friends in our Celebrating MOM photo series, here on this blog. In case you haven’t heard, we are celebrating Moms! Moms of all types, and phases, but for now, Moms of preschoolers. Moms whose lives are traveling at the speed of light, and whose babies are growing out… read more

Celebrating M.O.M. (and Me!): the First Six Months.

A few weeks ago, I kicked off my Celebrating MOM project, and so far, it’s been nothing but joy to watch this vision come to life. I’ve received such an incredible response and many wonderful people have lended their help and their services to make this thing happen. We just wrapped up a photo shoot where we pampered and photographed… read more
