Advisors often say that in order to succeed when starting a business, you must expect to fail, not once, but many times and as quickly as possible. The funny part is that it’s the opposite of what I had heard as a kid, especially the “many times as possible” part.

Siem Reap in 3 Days

In February of last year, in the middle of my parent’s visit in Hong Kong, they did a one week trip to Cambodia to see Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. I had never been to either so we booked a last minute trip to go with them, but could only join them for Phnom Penh

Most people I know who have been to Cambodia say that of all the places they’ve been to in the world, Siem Reap is the favorite. Most of them, however, had not been to Phnom Penh, and for me, specifically from a historical perspective, Phnom Penh really made an impact. I felt like I had to go to Siem Reap ASAP to see for myself. So we booked our trip in December, 2019.

How to Style a Tie-Dye T-Shirt

Bringing back my rewearability posts with one all about tie dye! I’ve found it oddly hard to find affordable tie dye sweatpants so kept it to a tee, but I promise that all of the bottom options are totally comfy 👌🏽 Pls excuse my messy hair and my pant and short ties oddly tucked in 🙏🏽 PS – This song is about Holi which is a festival of colors. The holiday itself has passed but I think we could all use a little color right now 🤗

The tie-dye short worn in this video is from Cotton Citizen. I purchased this particular one from Shopbop. They don’t have this particular one in stock anymore, but I think any waist-length shirt can be worn with sweatpants, a pleated skirt – midi or mini, wide-leg jeans, peg-leg trousers, and shorts of any kind.

See below for other ways I’ve worn this tie dye favorite: with bright trousers, overalls and white cropped wide-leg jeans.

2-Days in Tokyo – Part 2

My first time in Tokyo, Japan was almost 2 years ago. However, I was pregnant when I went and because of the risk associated with consuming raw fish when pregnant (and yes, I know that pregnant Japanese women still eat it) I had to forgo that type of sushi and sashimi. 

I fell in love with the city anyways and swore that I would go again to experience the food and other things that I missed. So as soon as we got an opportunity to go again, we booked. It was a super last minute 2-day trip. I wish it was at least a day longer, but it was just as amazing as the first time.
