• Why I haven’t been so ACTIVELY blogging

    My whole blogging thing started back in 2001 I had a boyfriend back then (yeah yeah like everyone does) and I just wanted to keep a record of all of the things we did together. I wanted to keep a record of all pictures and events, neatly somewhere that we both could see. He didn’t like the idea. I don’t know I just assumed he didn’t like it. Anyways, that’s

  • Loving Fanola No Yellow Shampoo

    So it’s been over 6 months since I got my hair done at Studio Monique. Usually, when people get their hair bleached and highlights done, they go back in about 3 months for touch-ups. For me, that’s something that is almost impossible. And because of that, I try and keep my hair from going all brassy and yellow at home. Right now I’m using Fanola No Yellow Shampoo and it’s

  • Another phase in life (HOMESICK)

    Life was always just simple for me. No super duper high and exciting moments. No way way down moments. It was always just manageable. Nothing really hit me too hard. Nothing really grabbed me aside (knock on wood). But lately, I’ve been so down and low it’s been driving me nuts. I always wanted to travel.

  • Turning Thirty Five. Officially.

    Yeap. It happened. The day I turned thirty five. Every year, my birthday seemed to pass without worry or any complicated thoughts of getting old. Nothing really made me feel old. Nothing (except the kids) really put my daily routine and my life into a “OMG I’m getting old” kind of phase. I liked becoming a year older. I liked being in my thirties and I loved turning thirty. It made

  • Artboard Layout for Designing

    Some of you have been asking me how I start my design process and what tools I use to design. To tell you a long story short, I use Adobe Illustrator CS6 for the initial START of designing everything (except websites). Then I bring it into Indesign or Photoshop.

  • How I Organize My Folders

    When it comes to organizing my folders for clients and even for my own pictures that I take with my Canon 760D camera. I like to keep everything organized and kept neatly so that I can find things whenever I need it.

  • My Logo Font

    It took me a really long time to come up with this logo. I started a blog back in 2001 with the name browneyedjeeae.com Even that logo changed so many times, it’s not even funny. I eventually landed at this one:   It all started with a small blog I made for school. It was a project for an elective course I had chosen to take for credits. Then it

  • Purple Shampoo in Korea | 퍼플샴푸

    I’ve been getting a lot of questions and inquiries about what shampoo I use. I guess it was obvious to most of those people that I was using purple shampoo. I guess since I bleached my hair and all. It’s really hard to get a really GOOD purple shampoo here in Korea. Either you have to search and search online for a good retailer or just order them from overseas.
