Springtime Lovin’

IMG_4669[Sunshine makes me happy]

I’m not a morning person, but walking through the Boston Public Garden on my way to work always brightens my mood and wakes me up. ¬†ūüôā ¬†I couldn’t help but snap a picture proving that spring is finally here!

Ipsy is a subscription service ($10/mo) that sends you a cute makeup bag and an assortment of samples and/or full sized products every month.  This month, I received a white makeup bag lined with pink and white stripes, and it was filled with Sation Nail Laquer in Love at First Byte (full size), Big Sexy Hair volumizing and texturing powder, Mica Shimmering powder in Earth (full size), and a bright Be a Bombshell blush in Beach Please (full size).  The value for all of these products this month was $42!

Girls’ night with complimentary granita to cleanse your palate, my favorite white sangria, and pop-rocks covered cotton candy for dessert… what’s not to love?

Happy Sunday, everyone!


A Week Well Spent

As an adventurer at heart, I love to explore, try new food, and travel whenever I get the chance.  I have been blessed with experiencing all of those things throughout the week.

[Taking advantage of restaurant week lunch at¬†Abe and Louie’s¬†with fresh-squeezed lemonade, french onion soup, prime sirloin, and a slab of chocolate cake]


[The NYC 9-11 Memorial pools that sit in the place of the destructed towers]

My sister planned an inKAS¬†Summer Camp reunion in NYC, so several of us from different countries were able to reconnect. ¬†ūüôā ¬†It was so good to see my sister and everyone who could be there, and it’s hard to believe that we traveled all over Korea nearly a year ago. ¬†

A¬†friend of mine told me about inKAS Summer Camp, which provides Korean adoptees a unique opportunity to travel throughout Korea. InKAS covers the lodging, airfare, meals, and a roundtrip flight. ¬†InKAS is accepting applications now through April 8, 2013 (for May 24th- June 5th, 2013 camp dates), so let me know if you’d like me to forward you additional information.

Hope you’re enjoying the week so far!



Here are a few things that have caught my eye lately:


[Neon Bendy Straws and lucky Maneki-Neko Cats from my favorite Asian fusion restaurant, Myers + Chang]


[Lush carrot bath soaps just in time for Easter]


[Beautiful scenery at Middlesex Fells]


[A cute sign on the sidewalk in South End complete with a mustache drawing]


[A Michael Kors watch I scored during the Nordstrom Rack grand opening]


[A view of the Zakim Bridge after trekking over to Charlestown for pizza and Bunker Hill sightseeing]


[Chocolate¬†Guinness¬†Cupcakes with Bailey’s Frosting from a fundraiser at church]


[A mint green top with dots, perfect for Springtime – also seen on Sutton in the Lying Game]

Happy Monday, everyone!

New Beginnings

Spring is just around the corner, and it’s my favorite season to start fresh and embrace new beginnings. ¬†ūüôā ¬†I thought it would only be fitting to start a blog to showcase the little things in life that make me happy.
