Beauty Break | Mani on the Go

A quick and easy Sally Hansen ten minute on-go-the-mani inspired by my minty Missguided dress puts the break in this edition of beauty break.

Race With Me

On The Amazing Race, I'm racing for Mom who wanted to tell the world I was going to be on the show but managed to keep the secret for months. I'm racing for Dad who religiously watched TAR and called me every Saturday morning to share his tips and strategies. I'm racing for my brother who encouraged me to let go of my fears, seize the moment, and go on the race when I didn't think I could do it. I'm racing for my friends who texted and called when I was off the grid because they were worried about me. I'm racing for USC, my alma mater and my Trojan family as they continue to support and nurture my endeavors long after graduation. I'm racing for lawyers, to show the world we are more than meets the eye. I'm racing for fashion bloggers. Yes, we love talking about sparkly and pretty things. But we're also fierce and can snap into warrior mode and get down with the best of them. I'm racing for Shanghai, my birthplace and my first home. I'm racing for Asian Americans. And I'm racing for LA, my favorite city in the world. 

Above all, I'm racing for ordinary girls with extraordinary dreams.

My Amazing Race starts Wednesday Feb 25 at 9:30pm on CBS. 

Race with me!


Oscars Red Carpet | Look for Less Lace Dress

During Oscars Week, it was all about intricacy meets simplicity as I wore my Lulu*s lace dress and simple nude sandals from DSW to the Hollywood Domino Gala.

The Secret to A Smaller Slimmer Thinner Face

After Wednesday night's gut wrenching sodium enriching Chinese New Year marathon dinner, I woke up yesterday looking like Jigglypuff. I have a naturally fuller face so it puffs up at the first sign of any aberration. To combat this, I have amassed an arsenal of products and techniques to slim the face and attack the face bloat from all fronts.

Office Style | The New Pantsuit

 Wide leg pants with a bloat-friendly waistband paired with a loose fitting velvet blazer make for a stylish office outfit that's comfortable and flattering.

LA Staycation | The Langham Pasadena

Wearing a romantic Lulu*s top,  I spent a serene and idyllic Valentine's Day weekend at The Langham Pasadena. The hotel is a childhood love that I never stop loving. 

The Amazing Race

 It is with utmost excitement that I share the biggest news of my life! I am a contestant on the 26th season of The Amazing Race premiering Wednesday February 25th at 9:30pm on CBS!

How I Extended My Three-Day BluePrint Cleanse

I tried Blueprint Cleanse Three-Day "Renovation" Cleanse and lived to blog about it! By personalizing it with a few minor tweaks, I was able to extend it into a fiber rich, protein infused "never feel hungry" five-day cleanse.

Valentine's Day Outfits For Every Relationship Iteration

With Valentine's Day just a few days away, I'm featuring outfit ideas for every relationship status so we can all celebrate the day of romance in style. Love and be loved!

After Hours | Fab Fit Fun

Pairing a simple yet slinky Liberty Sage black dress with silver Qupid heels and Chilli Beans sunnies put the fab in a fun night fit for revelers at Greystone Manor celebrating the winter launch of Fabfitfun.

Beauty Break | Brilliant Shine

As a gal on the go, I don't always have time to indulge in weekly nail salon visits so I've teamed up with Sally Hansen to give myself a DIY shiny nails mani featuring Miracle Gel while on a Friday afternoon coffee break. The nude pink shade perfectly complemented my Friday night playtime outfit, a Forever21 pink trench and H&M black lace dress.
