Daily uniform ft. Dagne Dover Landon Carryall

It’s great when pretty things are also functional. I think function has a lot to do with beauty. When God creates, He gives things (including us) specific, unique purpose, and I think this intertwines with the concept of beauty. Form & function, hand-in-hand. Ever since graduating from uni and starting work, I’ve been looking for…

Warm-weather Skin Care Favorites

When I think of the summer aesthetic, the word “glow” immediately comes to mind. SoCal residents are known for a beautiful, bronzed beach glow, but a healthy glow looks great on every skin tone. The Korean term for this lit-up look is 광 “gwang.” The most covetable glow (속광 “sokgwang”) is created from keeping the…

Gospel Siloam Church // A Day for Rejoicing

We do baptisms twice a year at GSC. My church, Gospel Siloam Church, is an organic, breathing body of Christ where I’ve daily experienced the life that flows from the Lord. It’s not perfect, but it’s alive thanks to God. His love for us as individuals and also for the nation and people of Japan…

Trip to SD & (Early) Summer whites

A spontaneous day trip to my old hometown of Del Mar (northern San Diego) called for a pre-summer outfit and some beach pictures. I’m definitely a beach-girl, but not in the traditional sense of daisy dukes, surfing, and tan lines. I’m more of a walker than a swimmer, and this especially holds true in San…

On Creation / Creative process

Whenever I try to force myself to write, it never goes over well. I’ll feign an organized, productive lifestyle by planning out little pockets of “creation time” throughout the week to tide the anxious, worried-about-the-future side of me over until the next bout of “I have to get my life together” strikes. But the creative…

Red cashmere ft. The Fifth Watches

My first outfit post. Experimental. Oh, i’m really no good at this, and it’s time to get better. I shot this on a whim in my dorm room because my new watch from The Fifth Watches came in today, and I felt a stirring need to document it in its glory.  Nothing exhilarates me quite as…

intermittent

post-relational musings; quickly jotted down in a scrap of paper upon feeling the sudden need to document my desire to be a particular sort of woman. now a thing of the past. she walked quickly when she was with him. it was never to keep up—no, he was an ambler, not a strider. but under…

Rock of Ages

There’s a piece that I wrote about four years ago, when I was in high school. Having always enjoyed playing with everyday objects in a way that tickles the humdrum of normalcy, I painted a lengthy portrait that likens our general lifestyle to climbing a ladder. It’s a long, murky piece full of remorse at…

真っ赤

I was seven the first time I fell in love. The moment will never be hard to pinpoint, even if you’ve shaken me awake to a bleary mauve sky. It rests just behind my eyes—a place where, when I choose to, I can see it with astounding clarity. My mother’s friend ran the festival. She…
