Blush vest

It’s crunch time as we prepare for our 3rd annual #WeAllGrow Summit! I still have not picked out all of my outfits for this three day event starting on March 1st. One thing is for sure, I will need to wear flats because heels…

Jacquard poncho

Can I just wear  a poncho for the next few months? They’re always my go-to this time of year. During these months, LA tends to be cloudy and rainy, work is on overload as we prep for our conference and I’m usually working on…

Pesto chicken penne for the soul

Like I mentioned in this post, I’m going to share a lot more of what we eat and do around these parts to feed our soul. I also want to share how we keep it all as simple as possible. Unless it’s a special event or…

Quiet the noise

I used to work at the Norton Simon Museum shortly after my move in 2004-05. I was a lecturer there for about 5-6 years. One of things I miss the most is their Asian and South Asian collection. The galleries feel like you’ve entered…

The sweater coat

Over the years, I’ve come to appreciate Los Angeles winters. I was one of those native New Yorkers who missed the feeling of real seasons, magical snowfall and the chance to bundle up in a nice warm coat. After my last few visits to…

Be the change

Yesterday’s Women’s March in LA was everything I had hoped it would be and more. The energy of the crowd was positive, uplifting and empowering. When I got home and saw the news coverage from all the world, I felt beyond honored to be…

The casual life

I typically share my more dressier looks on the blog because, well, I actually don’t have a real reason why. I guess I felt that if I was going to go out of my way to shoot pics, it should be more of an…
