A New Beginning

This post is for those who never gave up on me and this blog despite the long hiatus. While I’d rather not get into details of my life and the reason behind the gap, I wanted to mention that I really do appreciate your sticking around. Things have changed a lot for me the past…

A Perfect Getaway

As a place that was once called home, New York has a place in my heart like none other- if it needed to be defined, the relationship would be best compared to one I have with this bodycon dress (which, by the way, belonged to someone else prior to this trip)- it’s nice once you…

Work at it

It’s good to be back- this post and the several following won’t align what I’ve done previously, but that’s because Hee Hyun is away in Korea for the summer. Let me update you: It’s been five months and I’ve yet to pick up an agency in NY- I’m also no longer with Wilhelmina LA –…

Don’t wish for it. Work for it.

With a focus on getting better, exercise has become a big part of my life lately.You know, our parents were absolutely right when they said without health, you cannot possibly do anything- because when I first arrived here about a month ago, I could barely sleep or eat which made exercise not really an option.…

Where the Angels Are

  It’s been a while. Hi I’ve been waiting for the perfect timing for a grand comeback, if such existed. A perfect outfit, perfect post, perfect whatever which I know has never existed and never will. It’s called procrastination, and just as any mature adult should, I admit it.. though I should mention that fear…

Fashion is more than what you see

  When I was in college, I became overly obsessive over the topic of perception, in terms of how everyone viewed each other according to their appearance. I wondered how a person’s behavior towards another was affected by appearance, whether certain things about a person’s looks affected how he/she was treated/perceived, and so on (which…

In Progress: Acculturation

You know… I’ve been meaning to write about this… like forever. It’s not that it bothers me, I’m totally indifferent but just have to get it off my chest so that I stop ruminating… about now. I’m absolutely obsessed over my gym at the moment and ever since I got my membership there, I’ve been…

Finding comfort in my own skin

Isn’t it funny where life takes you? Sometimes, the most unexpected happens, and we don’t even realize how miraculous it is that it actually happened because we are so caught up in the moment where the little things, the forgettables reside. For me, this blog is one of those miracles, and I’m forever grateful for…

Identity Crisis

What does it mean to be American? America being a home to people of different national origins, when we introduce ourselves, there usually is an adjective before the word “American” that more accurately and profoundly describes a person’s origin. When I introduce myself, I call myself Korean American, but what does that really mean? Am…

Everyone needs a little love

 Just the other day, I posted on Facebook that I needed a friend. Besides the 350 something “friends” I supposedly have on it, I guess I suddenly and strangely felt a need for another one, or a new one perhaps. The truth is that this isn’t something that can be straightened out by adding another…
