Shortly after V and I got back from Hawaii we left for San Francisco Bay Area for V’s job. We stayed with our extremely gracious and wonderful friends in their gorgeous house in Foster City and it was such an amazing 3+ weeks. As much as I love being home again, I find myself missing the bay area, especially when it’s 95F outside. Continue reading →
Last night, or very early this morning, I came up with the secret to living a happy and fulling life. It’s really simple. Are you ready? Here it is… Continue reading →
While deciding on where to stay during our trip, we decided to try out a few different places. We ended up staying at two resorts, two bed and breakfasts, and a bungalow / “tree house”. The different locations and styles made each place unique and we loved the diverse experience they offered. It’s hard to say which was our favorite as they were all beautiful and so much fun to stay in. I could easily recommend all of the places we stayed at. If you have questions about any of these places specifically, please leave a comment below. Continue reading →
Happy almost-weekend! This is our second weekend in the Bay Area and while we were originally planning on white water rafting, we decided not to go due to our less than stellar swimming abilities. We will probably meet up with some of Vincent’s friends and gorge ourselves silly on the delicious Asian food here. *I can’t get enough of Hong Kong milk tea and all kinds of noodle dishes*
Some thought-provoking and fun links:
- Loved this piece featuring Beyoncé on self-love and self-acceptance.
- On the importance of setting boundaries: “If we don’t guard our time, our ability to be kind erodes”. So true.
- Dermstore is having an anniversary sale with some of my favorite brands (e.g. Sunday Riley, La Roche-Posay) up to 25% off*. I will be stocking up on this holy grail AHA serum. If you are on the market for a powerful but lightweight hair dryer, look no further than Harry Josh. I’m usually too lazy to blow-dry my hair, but this hair dryer has made it tolerable in getting the job done under 5 minutes.
- They had me at “Napa“. Next weekend trip?

Vincent and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon last month and it was an absolute dream. We split our time between Maui and the Big Island, spending about 10 days in Maui and 4 on the Big Island, for a total of two weeks. If you ever have the chance to visit Hawaii, we would highly recommend it. Not only does Hawaii have some of the most beautiful (and colorful) beaches in the world, you can also find rain forests, waterfalls, volcanoes and lava tubes. Below are some of our favorite spots in Maui and the Big Island. Continue reading →
