Good Reads. Soulful. Heartfelt. Light & Easy.

I have so many photos thoughts that I just needed to talk about. I used to say…so many dramas (I originally meant Korean & Chinese Dramas), too little time. But 2020 happens, surreal, so many real life dramas, only now, we have too much time… to think, to feel and to deal. That’s like a […]

The Rise of Do It Yourself (DIY)

2010. We attended a class to learn how to do balloon arrangements. Since my sister and myself are addicted to hosting parties for our sons (see my Parties Page), we wanted to save just a little bit so we said we will do our own balloon decorations and other DIY Party efforts . We were […]

Reviving Peace Lilies. Plarenting Lessons. 🌱

Hello! Hope all is well. With the new normal, it can be this, it can be that. It’s okay. What we have though is a lot of time to stay at home, to better ourselves and just to really keep thriving. It’s not easy. It’s okay. It’s okay not to be okay too. (That Korean […]

Curls are the best when in Quarantine | Dyson Airwrap 💁🏼‍♀️

Between remote working and wearing masks when I do go out, I was too lazy to spend extra time curling my hair. Messy buns don’t care. But I noticed that I have more bad hair days. My heavily colored hair seems to be needing a trim soon, it’s so dry, which isn’t an option for now. […]

What I do in Quarantine and what I did with my COVID-19 Stimulus Check 🤫

I wish you well. Let’s remain hopeful. Let’s keep counting our blessings. Side story. I work like clockwork. I have OCD tendencies and I’m a workaholic…so no surprise that weekend derails my purposiveness…no work, stock market is closed (yes, yes…I’ll tell you all about it in a little while), no language classes, no keto coffee and I’m […]

I dream of Poppy Bloom 🌼| Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve

Before the shelter-in-place, we had our fill of vacays. We spent last Valentine’s Day in Las Vegas. Super long drive from Fremont. We drove the night before and spent the night in Lancaster in one of my fave, preferred hotel chains (please check out my IG @chicsassymom). We had dinner plans in Las Vegas, but […]

I’ll not bore you with the details but let’s just say that it was a life-changing decision. As with everything else, […]
