The Tale

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

Megan’s Horror Movie Marathon! (Curated by Bill Freeman)

Do you ever stare at the multitude of options on Netflix? Do you scroll through and look at all the little synposes and thumbnails trying to decide if it's worthwhile, but ultimately accomplishing nothing? Well, I've been there more than a few times. Luckily, I am related to a film buff, with a particular expertise… Continue reading Megan’s Horror Movie Marathon! (Curated by Bill Freeman)

Claustrophobia & Clutter: Part I of The Closet Diaries

Hello, hello. I don't know if you've ever lived in a studio apartment or an environment with less storage available than necessary, but for me, it's becoming a problem.

So You Think You Can Weekend?

Hello dear friends! Apologies for the delay, but she's been celebrating for the gods this week, so much so that by the end of it all, I was shakier than Liza Minnelli on a boat. That's okay though. It was worth it and I'll be continuing to recoup today. Brace yourself for a long one,… Continue reading So You Think You Can Weekend?

Asian Beauty

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

This Week in Shenanigans

This was a rather front-loaded fun week. On Thursday, I enjoyed happy hour with my colleague/friend Abbey, who is delightful, smart, mature beyond her years, and very fun to hang out with. That happy "hour" turned into a romp through Boystown, as her dad had a work event at Sidetrack, which is always a treat.… Continue reading This Week in Shenanigans

Young Heart, Old Body

Saturday was spent in celebration of my "niece", Lily's, 7th birthday! She is the sweetest little lady and is clearly adored by her family and friends all who know her, myself included. It's been super cool watching her grow up in the last four years. She's very talented (ballet, gymnastics, handwriting), a great big sister… Continue reading Young Heart, Old Body
