• Tis the season

    Tis the season for cappuccinos and hot warm lattes. The weather here in Korea seems to change in an instant. I think I’ve said this before and every year I feel like spring and autumn is just gone and done within a few days. It gets cold so fast. Which calls for hot cappuccinos and lattes! YAY for me cause I LOVE em! [I don’t have a fireplace to sit in

  • The importance of “PRESENTATION”

    There’s always room for “improvements” when it comes to presenting your work to a client. I have NEVER given a client a design or mockup on just plain white paper. There’s a reason for that and it’s the most simple and obvious reason. HUMANS ARE VISUAL ANIMALS. We need to SEE what it looks like when it’s displayed on an actual SCREEN, BOOK or CARD to get a glimpse of

  • Mamma Mia 2

    I didn’t want to see it at first. I was one of those movies that I knew I was going to cry watching. I knew it was going to make me miss my friends back home and I knew I was going to feel all lonely and sad afterwards. I also knew that I was going to want to dance and sing after watching it. And sure enough, that’s exactly

  • Seol i Slime 셜이슬라임

    2019 March UPDATE: Seol i Slime is now closed. So last Friday I was lucky enough to participate and attend the opening of a SLIME cafe. This SLIME CAFE thing is so BIG in Korea right now. Even adults go in and play with slime for an hour. The concept of the CAFE is that you make your own slime, add the desired parts and sprinkles. Then play with it

We always had people over, but it was more like a buffet of Korean food and a turkey made by someone else. All the other food would be done by mom but the turkey was always brought by someone else. So when it comes to Thanksgiving, I never actually miss my moms’ turkey, I

  • 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. I never imagined living abroad or getting married to someone abroad. Well, I did
