For most of us at this college age, we tend to feel overwhelmed with life because of the “million” things going on. With taking a crazy course load, being involved in sororities/fraternities/clubs, figuring out what to do with your life, while figuring out if that frat boy likes you…yeah I understand that overwhelming feeling. And I guess I could say, I may have been lucky enough to figure it out early on in college to learn how to manage and prioritize my time wisely.

This past year, I’ve done a lot of back and forth traveling to San Diego and I must say I frickin’ loveeee the place. It’s pretty much a more laidback, conservative version of Los Angeles with also more of a beach vibe I suppose. Nonetheless, I’ve grown to love the city and all the niche spots to do my work at, which some of you have asked about, so I decided to write a full recommendation post on my favorite coffee spots in SD! (and definitely IG worthy too, of course) Continue reading “The Best Coffee Spots in San Diego”
It’s the beginning of August and Fall is right around the corner. For most people, that means returning back to school, whether that is high school, college, etc. For the college kids like myself, that usually includes sorority/fraternity rush, tailgates, welcome-back parties, and so much more. Three years ago, I decided I would go through sorority recruitment, but what I did not know was what to expect from it. Continue reading “What if I Didn’t Join a Sorority…?”
For almost about a year now, I developed various changes in my self-care habits, both physically and mentally. With these new habits, I have seen significant change in my thought process, mindset, and approach to life and relationships, in which a few close friends have observed as well. In this post, I want to be share a few of those habits that I indulge in, in order to maintain a healthy body, mind, and overall lifestyle as a college student and entrepreneur.

So it’s almost the end of June and that means two more months till all recently graduated high school seniors head off to their first year of the “best four years of their life”. This topic is something I wish I could’ve told myself prior to beginning college, but as a rising college Senior, I am glad I have the knowledge now to share with those who are about to begin a new journey in their life.
For most of us, we typically live and grow up in the same hometown from the minute we were born. We have attended elementary, middle school, and high school with most of the same people and it has always felt comfortable. But now, most of you will embark on a journey in a completely new environment, perhaps even a new state like I did, surrounded by completely different people. I will admit, when I was 18, I didn’t really give this a second thought because I truly felt ready for this change in lifestyle and environment. However, there are a few things I wish I could have kept in mind as I entered this new reality and I’ll explain why. Continue reading “My Advice to Incoming College Freshmen”
As a fashion and style enthusiast, my main focus was always on the outfit and the overall attire, rather than the small details, such as a bracelet or necklace. However, as I’ve become older and more versatile with my accessories, I have determined three of my jewelry must-haves to keep my style nice and simple, but still easy to switch around.
- Watches – so, watches are an absolute must for me. I think they add so much flair to an overall attire and it’s always a classic way to keep track of time. I typically wear my Apple watch for everyday on-the-go to keep track of my steps and workout activity, or when I am trying to match my outfit specifically, I like to wear my silver Kate Spade watch or my new JORD black wooden watch, as seen in the featured photo!
- Simple Rings – I honestly used to never wear rings because I assumed I would likely lose them easily. Nowadays, I usually add a few simple rings to my left hand and I feel as though my entire outfit just amped up a notch by simply accessorizing my fingers (lol). One of my favorite rings is from “Cuffed by Nano”. But in all seriousness, they add such a nice touch and style to your overall look, even though they seem like minor details.
- Bracelet “Cuffs” – I don’t know how to describe them exactly, but cuffs have been such a nice jewelry essential for me, especially since I can just put them on in 2 seconds. My favorite cuffs are from Gorjana, as seen in the featured photo as well. I have the same exact cuff in both silver and gold, so I can always switch back and forth between the two when I need to match with a specific color theme.
And that’s it! 3 simple jewelry must-haves (in my opinion) that are so easy to incorporate in your everyday style and will easily enhance your overall look.
Growing up as an Asian American in a predominantly Caucasian community, I already felt an instant difference in individuality based on physical looks. To enhance (or distinguish) my individuality even more, I grew up training and competing in the sport of figure skating, and later on adding competitive tennis to my regime.
Essentially, I was a completely “different” type of girl. Not only was I not Caucasian like everyone else, but I didn’t really participate in any “normal” sports like soccer and lacrosse. Although, I had a great run during my middle school years being on the varsity field hockey and track team. For anyone that is curious, I really loved both sports and if I wasn’t so involved with my two other sports, I would have continued both activities in high school and potentially college. (I ran the 200m and 4×4 relay in track, shoutout to my brother for training me into a wild athlete those years) Regardless, I stood out pretty easily to my peers, which essentially forced me to stand alone as a complete individual at times.
