While most of my trips are of the short-haul variety (five hours or less), I always come prepared. One never knows when a flight can get delayed or cancelled and suddenly you’re stuck in ...

I’m moving soon to a furnished apartment, which means I need to sell all my furniture and hopefully end up with a nice wad of cash. I also hope to use this as an opportunity to downsize. Downsizing is both a long- and short-term goal of mine, although it rarely works or sticks. I have ...

It’s now 2014 and how’s my beauty routine? Practically the same. I still don’t wear a lot of makeup and my search continues for the Holy Grail of primers for my combination skin. I don’t believe in resolutions but I do want to get over my fear of using a lash curler, and learn how ...

The slow-but-sure transition from winter to spring means it’s almost time to push heavier clothing to one side of the closet to make way for lighter, bolder springtime options. There are a number of spring basics that every woman should own, like a new dress for graduation ceremonies and outdoor parties, a pair of sandals ...

Hi, Nikki. I’m currently a freshman in high school and I spend a lot of time listening to K-pop and watching K-dramas. I love Korean fashion or Asian fashion in general.

We’re still in the middle of winter, but it’s now a new year and time to look ahead to what’s in store, fashion-wise, as temperatures rise.

I love your advice. I hope you can help me! I’m a student currently and there’s no uniform at my school, and it’s not easy picking outfits. I really like Asian, especially Korean, fashion. I really want to buy these styles of clothes. However, it seems they focus on the legs and tight clothing. I’m ...

Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean the shopping is. After-Christmas sales, pre-Chinese New Year sales and we’re-still-in-a-recession sales are in full swing, and it’s time to take advantage! As someone who travels a lot, I like to look for things that I might go through quickly or lose somewhere along the way. This includes journals, ...
