So…where do I begin with New York Fashion Week?
Sometimes you have a certain feeling, whether it is happiness or emptiness, that is so strong that the feeling just lingers on and on. The lights dim at the theater of the Lincoln Center, then the drummer plays the first beat, follows by the adrenaline rush of seeing the first model walks out of the runway of the Rebecca Minkoff show. That feeling is unparalleled to any other.
Despite the snowstorm, flights cancelled, and lack of cold weather friendly clothes in the luggage, New York was absolutely amazing. Big thanks to my east coast friends for being the best company/tour guides ever. Looking at these pictures is making me miss New York so much.

These pictures were taken in front of the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles a couple of weeks back. Architecture is one of my favorite things to photograph and I can never tire of the DTLA skyline. It was the perfect day running errands and grabbing brunch with one of my old college friends. The J Brand leather pants are so comfortable and I paired it here with the softest t-shirt ever from Kain.

Each year, Chinese New Year lands around the same date as Valentine’s Day. Last year, I made Valentine’s Day cards for my girlfriends. This year, I’m making Valentine’s Day fortune cookies which combines the two holidays we celebrate together. They are so easy to make and hassle-free.
1. Fold circle card in half and crease down the middle. For best results, your circle card should be 4″ in diameter. Also, I recommend using card stock.
2. In the opposite direction of the folded line, roll the circle in thirds. Insert your message.
3. Turn rolled paper sideways and pinch down the two outer ends to meet.
5. You have the option to glue the 2 ends together. I chose to punch a hole inside and use brad to secure the inside of the cookie.
