I’ll Save My American Healthcare Rant for Facebook Instead

I’ll Save My American Healthcare Rant for Facebook Instead

Results from pathology came back for my final post-surgery follow-up and I’m all clear. No more follow-ups. I’m done. I’M DONE. I’m officially cancer-free, no reappearance of cancerous or abnormal cells since my surgery, and I can be done with extra medical appointments and extra tests. This chapter of my life is officially closed now. Shout out to the few friends who actually bothered to ask how I’ve been doing these past 18 months since my first abnormal test results…

OOTD: The Closest I Can Get to Wearing an Actual Blanket Outdoors

OOTD: The Closest I Can Get to Wearing an Actual Blanket Outdoors

It’s Basic-White-Girl-Blanket-Scarf season! All I’m missing in this outfit is some nasty, burnt-tasting Starbucks, and the inability to “even”. One of my favorite ways to wear this glorified throw-blanket we pretend is a scarf, is by draping it over my shoulders and belting it. It keeps it in place and my body still has a shape. Being petite, I know I can easily drown in large amounts of fabric and layers, so this is what works for me! Need a…

Throwback Video: 6 Less Boring Ways to Wear a Pencil Skirt

Hey everyone! My husband accidentally broke my daughter’s phone so I am letting her use mine (I like for her to have a cell phone on her in case of emergencies, especially since she buses to a different city for school), and it occurred to me that all my photos and videos for my blog are taken with my cell phone because using a digital camera involves a ton of extra steps that I am too lazy to take. So…

Hey everyone! This post went up a little later than usual for no other reason than that I just freaking forgot. I’d apologize, but meh. It happens. This outfit is from Saturday, when I attended my town’s local Art and Wine Walk event. You can see I decided to wear the earrings and ring from Rocksbox, and kept my color palette simple, but definitely not boring! I finally got around to altering and hemming these shiny pink pants. They’re a…

VIDEO: Is Rocksbox Overpriced?

 We made it to Friday! Not that it matters if you’re a parent. Everyday feels like a hangover but without the fun part from the night before. Today I’m sharing the contents of my jewelry subscription box from Rocksbox! It’s $21 to rent 3 pieces of jewelry for the whole month, with the option of keeping any of them that you want, with your $21 fee being credited toward the cost of your jewelry. If you want to keep it…

OOTD: Post-Grunge College Tracy Says Hi

OOTD: Post-Grunge College Tracy Says Hi

Back when I was but a slightly shorter, over-educated, sleep-deprived undergrad tater-tot, I wore clothes that definitely didn’t go over well in the midwest. I tended to combine menswear pieces with things that really didn’t make sense, and the less it went together, the more I liked it. My sense of, er, “style”, was not appreciated out in Honkey-Dorey-Cornville. Of course, the older I get, the fewer fucks I have to give, and it seems I may not have even…

VIDEO: FabFitFun Fall 2019 Unboxing!

There were a lot of mixed reviews about FabFitFun‘s fall box in the Facebook groups I’m in, with a lot of people choosing to cancel because they found it THAT disappointing. I didn’t think it was bad at all, as there were items I did in fact want and need, though I could definitely understand why some people decided to skip out and wait for the winter box instead.  Here’s what I got! As an annual member, I get to…

OOTD: The Sleeveless Trench

OOTD: The Sleeveless Trench

Classics that you can dress up, dress down, pair with and layer over… are the type of pieces that definitely pull their own weight in a capsule wardrobe or during seasonal transitions. Yesterday was warm enough that I could wear this sleeveless trench as a dress, with some fun heels and a bright bag. Other ways to wear this is over a sweater (the constrasting sleeves make it look like you have a cool two-toned jacket, or you can pick…

I’m back everyone! My wonderfully beat up suitcase has now been to both hemispheres, and it definitely shows.  My son has been wanting to go to New Zealand for years now, and that’s something he finally cross off his own bucket list (I wonder where he got that wanderlust from, hmmmmm…. must be from his dad). FYI, New Zealand is NOT a country where you get claim your GST back, and that tax is hiiiiiiigh. Not a lot of shopping…

OOTD: A Midi-Length Dress that Works for Petites

OOTD: A Midi-Length Dress that Works for Petites

Even though I’m average height for South Korea (my country of birth), I’m considered pretty short by US standards. That makes buying certain styles of clothing a little more challenging, because proportions are KEY to making an outfit work for shorter women. I absolutely LOVE this midi-length dress I bought from Venus. A lot of their clothing is a little bit sexier and clubbier than I prefer personally, but this dress seemed like the right combination of “covered” while still…
