Chasing Waterfalls, Iceland

Chasing Waterfalls, Iceland

After spending some relaxing time walking around beautiful Reykjavik, we got on the white Ring Road and went chasing waterfalls. The sky was clear with lovely passing clouds, and the sun was shining on the glistening snow. With only six hours of daylight, we wanted to make sure we got to see as many places as we… Continue Reading

Arriving in Iceland

Arriving in Iceland

With only a map and a page of itinerary, my beau and I made a last-minute decision to hop on the plane and spend this past Christmas in Iceland. We’d been talking forever about how fun it would be to spend the Yule in the Nordic island to soak in all the folklore and traditions, and… Continue Reading

La Chine at Waldorf Astoria

La Chine at Waldorf Astoria

I’ve always wanted to dine at La Chine. It’s the perfect combination of exquisite Chinese cuisine and refined French execution all in an elegant setting. So on the Chinese Moon Festival, my family and I celebrated the night here and enjoyed some of the most delicately prepared regional dishes we’ve ever tasted. The Chilean sea bass and… Continue Reading

When a snow storm is brewing outside, there’s nothing better than staying in and indulging a little bit with some sweet treats. And for us New Yorkers, stopping by one of the many internationally renowned bakery shops to shake off those winter blues is always a good idea.

Drinking Up the Holiday Spirit

Drinking Up the Holiday Spirit

Throughout this December holiday season, I flew to somewhere warm, somewhere cold, and somewhere crazy (posts coming up soon!), in all different directions all over the map. It wasn’t until the last couple of days of the year did I finally land back home in the city. Despite all the wonderful time I had on my trips,… Continue Reading

Night at the Holiday Market

Night at the Holiday Market

One of the many things I look forward to during the holidays is the super festive, exciting and whimsical holiday markets scattered throughout the city. My favorite has always been the one in Union Square, where you’d find adorable crafts made by local artists, colorful blooms in season to add lots of fragrance and color to your room, and the… Continue Reading

Ancolie, NYC

Ancolie, NYC

Healthy food doesn’t have to taste boring! That’s a revelation I had when I popped into Ancolie – an urban oasis in the heart of Greenwich Village. Named after the wild flower, Ancolie is a sun-washed cozy place where you can smell the freshness and feel the cleansing start the moment you step in. I met with Chloe,… Continue Reading

Blooming in Winter

Blooming in Winter

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean we should all be clad in black and grey. I like wearing lots of colors when it’s bleak outside and the trees are barren, and I usually almost go with red, not only because it’s my favorite color but also because it really brightens up your mood in the… Continue Reading

When my beau and I visited the beautiful vineyards in Long Island, we also stopped by an adorable petting zoo to play with some of the fluffy bunnies and other cute animals. This was actually the moment of the day that I’d been waiting for, considering how much I love bunnies. I almost screamed while we… Continue Reading
