Boston 2015: Day One

A couple of months ago, my longtime friend messaged me on Twitter as she always did. She said she was going to Boston in November. It’s been years since we last saw each other, so a meeting was long overdue. Plus, I have never been. As one who’s hard-pressed to turn down a chance to travel when it arises, I promptly told her that I’m going up to see her. And so, on a chilly morning last week, I boarded a shuttle bus to Newark and then boarded a plane to Boston for a four-day weekend. Read more…

Timeless Thoughts: World of Warcraft

One of the few WoW screenshots I could find.

In the summer of 2010, my then-boyfriend Michael introduced me to World of Warcraft. I’ve never played an MMORPG before. It was completely new to me, but little did I know that it would define my life for the next six months. I loved every minute of it.

Hello New York

Long time no see, Manhattan! This is my third visit to New York and the first one in a decade. I was set to attend the Future of Web Design conference for work, but I came a day earlier to enjoy a few activities before it started. I made a small list of things I wanted to do, and I’m happy to say that I crossed them all off! I had complete control of my itinerary. All my previous visits were with family, so it was awesome to be able to do anything I wanted this time. Read more…

My Favorite Things: November 2015

Happy birthday, linkup! <3 This month marks one year of My Favorite Things, the linkup for all the things you love. Thank you so much to everyone who submitted and made mine and Eirene‘s little idea into a success. I hope to keep seeing all of your faves in the future, and discovering even more awesome stuff!

After last month’s skincare linkup, I decided to try out a few new products. I don’t have many steps to my routine, and I don’t hoard a lot of products, so I figured I could afford to spend a little more on products that I love and work well for me. Read more…
