Summer Travels

By on July 15, 2017

It seems like everyone is traveling this month! I haven’t gone anywhere exciting, but I do have a couple of events to dress up for.

Anyways, one of my close co-workers asked me to do some inspiration for her upcoming trip to Vegas, and I couldn’t say no! This post is dedicated to you, Lauren.

Long car rides or flights are always a pain, but you can still look cute! The key is comfortability (for me, it’s a bit more loose clothing)! I do know some people who end up wearing sweat pants and when they arrive at their destination they change out to different clothes. In the case you don’t want to do that, I would go with some boyfriend jeans and a nicer top to look put together but you’ll also be comfortable.

Let’s Meat

By on June 26, 2017

I started off this summer with my boyfriend’s graduation. His family came from Texas and SoCal to see him walk, so the leading days to his graduation we traveled with his family meeting old friends and doing some sight-seeing.

But the following week, I went to eat at House of Prime Rib! I don’t think I have eaten here for over a year or so. Every time there’s an occasion, I am out-of-town. Regardless, I never have had a disappointing dinner here. The past couple of years, this place has been really busy (not that it wasn’t busy before). The Food Network featured them, and then a huge fluctuation of people started coming. Before, I believe I could walk in and wait maybe 30~45 minutes. Now, I don’t think walking in is a wise decision.

House a Prime Rib is a classic staple in San Francisco. Though it is a nice restaurant, it has an inviting casual ambiance. I would definitely recommend going here if you’re in the city!

Set my heart aflame, ev’ry part aflame. This is not a game.

I haven’t been that actively lately because I’ve been occupied with school (the quarter is ending soon) and work has been quite busy. Maybe I’ll post up the project my friend Wayne and I have been working on once it’s done.

My research at work is going okay, but there’s always something more I can do (potentially). I’m hoping to get something together to submit a paper to the AMFG conference.  The paper isn’t due until July, but I’m worried I might not have enough data. Need to run more experiments, Elizabeth!

It has been quite a rough month, but I think things are starting to get better / seem okay. This Memorial weekend is going to be fun and relaxing!  On Friday, I’m going to go with my friend, Catherine, to Stanford’s Chinese graduation party as her date, and afterwards, we’ll be going to her friend’s birthday party. Saturday – Monday, the boyfriend and I are going to take a weekend trip down to Monterey / Santa Cruz. I’m looking forward to it!

Strolling around the coast look — but still having some swimwear just in case you want to jump into the ocean!
It’s a bit late, but I just ordered this swimsuit. I’ve been working on exercising, and there has been some progress! I’ll update next time on my progress with BBG.

Comfortable, Casual — for long drives or to relax in after the busy weekend

Do you guys have any plans this Memorial Weekend? It’s also con season, so I believe a good amount of people are going to be at Fanime. I threw in some looks I plan to wear this week. Hope it’ll inspire you, readers, if you’re unsure what to wear when going on a weekend trip!
