I always look forward to Pantone's announcement for Color of the Year. For 2019, they chose Living Coral! What great timing, too, as springtime will be upon us in the next three or four months. In fact, there have been days in December and January that have felt unusually springy. Not only is this color… Continue reading Living Coral: Pantone’s Color of the Year!
One of the biggest victims from our holiday celebrations and merry making is our skin. Many of us increase our intake of sugar, red meat, and alcohol. We frequently wear and (hopefully) remove our makeup for the many parties we attend and we're often not sleeping as soundly as we need to.

This past weekend, you may have noticed that I was lucky enough to attend my first opera at the Lyric Opera of Chicago with my dear friend, Sarah, who works in their development division.

The next day, I did a competitive cycling class (which I… Continue reading Branching Out

On Saturday night, I went to visit and sleepover at my dear friend Arie's newer home in Evanston. We had a girl's night, which included face masks by Tony Moly, delicious and very healthy snacks prepared by Arie, and a couple of movies interrupted frequently by our typical disjointed chats, talking about everything in our… Continue reading The Tale
I like cooler weather, but September has been really all over the place in Chicago between the thunderstorms, humidity and overcast clouds. Not exactly what I was hoping for post Labor Day. It does lead me to believe that I could be a meteorologist for one of Chicago's news stations because apparently, you don't need… Continue reading Smörgåsbord IV
The inspiration for this post all started from the movie I watched this weekend. A fairly weak "thriller" film, The Phantom in the Theatre, was something I picked on Netflix because many Asian thriller/horror films are awesome. Though this one was rather corny, I finished it because the cast was so attractive and I loved… Continue reading Asian Beauty
