My Everyday Face

I confess that I am a skincare fanatic, even though I realize that 90% of what your skin looks like probably comes down to genes, food, and hormones. This post is all about what I do for the other 10% .   Morning In the morning, I don’t wash my face and just put on sunscreen. I have been using Elta…

No Poo

I have spent $0 on shampoo and conditioner in the past 2.5 years. And no, it’s not because I won a raffle that guaranteed me free hair care products for life. It’s because I’ve stopped using them! Yes, I can hear the gasps from the audience (especially you, KT!), but I’m here to tell you that everything is okay and…

A Nod to the Pod(cast)

In 7th grade, one of the electives that my middle school had available was something like “digital communications.” I can’t remember the exact name, but what I do remember about the class was that we were required to record and upload a podcast to iTunes as one of the projects. This was my first introduction to podcasts, and I don’t…

Listen Up

There are periods of time when I am obsessed with a single artist or song, and times where I am really into one genre. Lately though, I’ve been feeling less of those intense emotions towards music. Maybe I’m just mellowing out, but I doubt it because this post-college life definitely feels crazy. I thought I would share some of those…

The State of Grocery Shopping in 2017

When one of my coworkers told me about Good Eggs, I knew it was something I wanted to try. She explained during lunch that Good Eggs is an SF-based company that does online grocery delivery. They promise to deliver produce within a day or two of harvest and have all of the Bay Area favorites (Cowgirl Creamery, Acme, Tartine, Full…

We Are All Migrants Through Time

Last Fall, I watched 4.1 Miles, a short documentary on the refugee crisis in Greece created by a Berkeley grad (below). Last Winter, I found myself at a loss in the face of a new president who failed spectacularly to understand the experience of immigrants. A few weeks ago, I read an article about how overweight Asian-Americans and more emotionally…

Visual Diary: Baja California Eats

I am pretty sure my parents live closer to Mexico than LA, so it seemed reasonable that after 13 years of living in San Diego, they decided to go on a weekend trip to Baja California. This was my parent’s second time driving there and my first time joining them. We left San Diego around noon, drove through Tijuana, then…

Evolution of Instagram

Over the past few weeks, I’ve found myself using Instagram in a new way. I always thought of it as a place to just see what my friends were up to, so I don’t really follow anyone outside of who I know already in-person. Last year, I tried to follow more influential people on Instagram (wait, there’s a word for that—influencer),…

What I’m Listening to Now

Francois and the Atlas Mountains – Perpétuel Eté If anyone wants to take a similar photo to the one above, hit me up because it looks so fun! Maybe in the winter time when it’s cold enough to wear sweaters again. Or we could meet in San Francisco, where summers are always reliably cold. Anyway, the sweater-connected folks above are…

Chicken Soup for the Soul

I remember those Chicken Soup for the Soul books I used to see all the time when at bookstores or the library. I looked at the covers again and they seem very 90’s and early 2000’s to me, which is probably around the last time I picked one up. In case you haven’t heard of them, the general idea of…
