check out 42 magazine's latest issue here, and check out the rest of their issues as well. thanks again to the talented crew: krisnoff, stephanie, jair, justus for the feature. it's always a little weird talking about fashion and about myself in this kind of context. it's the oscars! too bad we couldn't make it down to LA as we did last year and frolic around town due to the rain, but all is good. somehow i've gotten a bit less invested and interested in the whole h-wood spectacle ever since moving to california... proximity kills. i find it quite funny how these things happen.

Fresh air. Sea salt. Dust. Cliffs. Annoying long earrings. Pho with best friend. Gym. Class. Burrito. Home = summary of the day. Anyways, a busy week ahead after a very lazy weekend. Finished House Of Cards. Sad--I don't want to wait another year for thirteen hours of bliss. Plus I miss DC. oh well. Peace x

Clearasil & Refinery29 were kind enough to send some of Clearasil's products over last week. To be honest I was very skeptical at first (I don't like putting extraneous or new stuff on my face) but I found this particular face wash to be super gentle and cleansing, so I decided it was worthy of being included in my current 'favorite' sections that help me #wintheday. I know some of you have asked for a while now for me to do a make up post and I promise I will soon!
If you are at all interested in trying the new Clearasil line, here is a rebate so that you can sample them yourself for free!

One of the best things in life, in my opinion, is to wake up in a hotel room in some unknown city (wrapped in crisp white sheets), filled with the thrill and excitement of exploring whatever foreign terrain you have decided to conquer that day. This photo was taken two summers ago when my sister and I went back home to visit our friends in Amsterdam and our family in Berlin. Some #tbt for ya.
Have a fantastic week, you deserve it.
Not a real football fan (much prefer soccer, beyond excited for fifa 2014 in brazil, rooting for the dutch in orange, of course) but since the niners were playing last night I guess this was the closest to thing to a jersey that I owned. Anyways, finally got around to watching 'twelve years a slave' and 'wolf of wall street' this week-- the first was heartbreaking and the latter was quite entertaining. I guess you really can't go wrong with scorsese + an angry leo. also, yeah, i dyed my hair again. sometimes I just get bored and need a change.
p.s shot an exciting project yesterday that I can't wait to share with you as well. take care, much love.

Decided to stay 'California warm' today by wearing a questionable length shirt and a pair of camera shy shorts that really make it seem like I forgot to wear pants this morning. I'm back in San Francisco enjoying what is left of my winter break-- basically that means catching up on T.V shows & movies before I head back to So-Cal to finish up school and graduate. Woohoo.
Also, the very wonderful people from DNA Footwear sent me these most perfect suede beige booties by Seychelles. Double zipper back details, chunky heel perfection, butter soft suede, flawless rustic, sand beige coloring -- what more can a girl ask for? You can find them here.
Again, thank you guys so much DNA footwear. & thank you courtney (@cyeetheworld) as well.

i usually don't like to dump my instagram photos on here because i get very obsessive about perfecting and aligning the various pesky formatting issues that my iphone photos always seems to have. but since i have really nothing else to post (excuse me while i have been hibernating for 2+ weeks), i figured to let go of my ocd-ness when it comes to layouts and formats and cue the d.c photos:
1. view of the willard hotel, where MLK wrote 'i have a dream'
2. i lived about five blocks away from the white house, so i would pass it every time i went for a run!
3. cupcakes from baked and wired in georgetown, close to where i worked.
4. bathroom selfie taken in between writing papers
5. my desk at my internship
6. a perfect day, sailing to chesapeake bay
7. outfit taken in williamsburg, new york.
8. on air and bts with bloomberg news
9. shot of the intersection of new york ave and 17th in downtown d.c
10. happy hour with lovely friends in eastern market
11. fall foliage in rock creek park
12. anderson cooper, the silver fox! an extremely kind and intelligent man, taken on capitol hill
all in all-- probably one of the best 3 months of my life! i am very thankful and grateful for the experience and cannot wait to go back some day. merry christmas, btw.

what i thought was a brilliantly warm clothing combination (peacoat + this leather vest i bought three years ago) put me into a state of 'i am freezing because i do not know how to dress for the cold, nor does my body/brain understand how to function in this weather'. i guess these past six years in california have really spoiled me weather-wise, because even though it is my last week here in D.C, all i want to do is stay inside, guzzle down hot chocolate, read a book and wrap a blanket around myself. i'm sad to leave, for obvious and not-so-obvious reasons, but per usual and as is with most things in life--- all good things must come to an end.
i spent last weekend in NYC (thanks again gabz for letting me stay with you!) and had an amazing time exploring the city... que instagram account photos.
hope you guys had an amazing thanksgiving!

ok.. yes. out of all places in washington for me to take 'pretty' and scenic photos that would display the capitol, the white house, the monuments or any of the other architectural marvels that this town is blessed with, i would find myself up taking photos in an alley. but it's a special one, because it's the alley that president barack obama uses to sneak into the jefferson hotel. unfortunately when that occurs it is usually swamped with intimidating secret service agents, so no luck on meeting the president. but meeting anderson cooper was more than enough *dreamy eyes*
so where do i start.. the leaves are turning red and gold, the air is nice and brisk, the lattes have cozied with the pumpkin spices, the gloves and sweaters are dug up from the back of one's closet. in other words, autumn's here and i love it!
i'm almost half-way through my stay here and wake up every morning excited and blessed. it's a rare yet incredible feeling and it has made me reconsider a lot of things. & sorry for the lack of posts, it's just been hard finding someone who can take decent photos. but i've been posting some stuff on instagram. hope you guys are well and have a great weekend!
