7 Reasons Why Charlotte Is the Place to Be

I may be a little bias, but I do believe that Charlotte, North Carolina is quite possibly the best city. After being born in Philadelphia, PA, growing up in the small-town USA and living in the ultimate tourist hot spot, Orlando, Flordia on top of traveling across the United States, nowhere else is quite like the Queen City.

Business casual, but make it fun

I feel like the business casual game has changed a lot over the years. Gone are the days of only wearing crisp white button-down shirts and solid black pixie pants. Although there's nothing wrong with sporting the basics, it's exciting to know that there are so many different style options available now to allow us to express our own style.

Growing up Asian in America - The Cultural Limbo #AMYIRL

It seems like the topic of diversity in the media has been popping up a lot lately. To be more specific, the topic of Asian American representation has been getting more attention within the past year than it ever has before. I guess it can be credited to films like Crazy Rich Asians, To All the Boys I Loved Before, Always be my Maybe, Boa, and now, The Farewell for starting these conversations. For someone who has been a little ashamed of being the "Chinese girl" growing up, it's been pretty cool to see more representation of Asians in the media.

City Gal

I think it comes to no surprise that I love the city. I thrive in living in urban areas where it takes you 30 minutes to drive 5 miles down the road and 5'oclock traffic is an actual thing. There's something about being somewhere where there's such a large diversity of people hustling every day to reach their goals... and the countless food options are a major plus.

I tried HelloFresh for 3 Weeks... here are my thoughts

I'm sure you all have seen the ads on Twitter, deals on Facebook, Influencers sharing it on Instagram Stories, YouTubers doing plugs of it in their Vlogs... everywhere. You know, the "get $80 off your first month!" HelloFresh ads. I'm not going to lie, I kept ignoring them thinking that I don't need to add another subscription service onto my account and plus, is it really worth the hype?

Well, I eventually caved, and here are my thoughts.

Lilly Pulitzer Sizing Guide 2.0

Many of you know that I love Lilly Pulitzer. The bright colors and prints always make me so happy when I wear them and I just love the overall brand itself. I purchase most of my Lilly pieces during the After Party Sale due to the fact that Lilly pieces aren't cheap and it's the only way I'm able to afford them. Since the pieces in the APS are nonrefundable and still more of a splurge purchase for me, I always have to make sure I'm purchasing the correct size.

I do the majority of my APS shopping online and can know it's pretty tricky on trying to figure out what size to order. I always rely on reviews on sizing and fit to help make my decision when online shopping. Today I'm sharing another Lilly Pulitzer sizing guide with some new pieces in preparation of the second After Party Sale for 2019!

8 #BossBabe Podcasts to Check Out

I feel like there are two types of people: people who like constant background noise on at all times and people who like complete silence. Ya girl so happens to fall into the category of needing to have some type of background noise on at all times whether it be music, a YouTube video, or as of late, podcasts (which is a little unfortunate for my roommate/my neighbors...sorry!).

I pretty much have my morning routine down pat now with waking up and playing a new podcast that has aired that day while I get ready. As much as I love jamming out to my favorite songs, it's nice to switch things up every now and then listening to a good podcast. Plus, there's so much you can learn from others by listening to their own personal experiences and advice!

Haha, in reality, I know New Year's Resolutions tend to get a bad rep but I personally love them. I mean, who doesn't love a new start? Whether it be the start of a new week, year, or heck, even a day ya girl loves a good fresh start.
