Cooking with @the.jam.life

It is always exciting when you figure out that one of your friends is just as food and fitness-obsessed as you (and also likes to post about it on Instagram). I want to introduce Jamie (@the_jam_life): close friend, aspiring chef, and workout-obsessed. Recently, Jamie started an Instagram account that not only provides daily workout motivation but also showcases all the delicious food...

A London Look

I wouldn't say that I've tried to steer away from posting more style posts but I got a lot of messages on Instagram saying that I should do more outfit posts. So, naturally, I will try to post more!! I've been in London for the past 6 days and by now it feels a little like my second home. I look forward to coming here every year because it is a good change-up from the New York chaos over my winter break...

In-Flight Beauty

I have officially turned into a beauty-product freak. Yes, it's true. As a result, i get terrified about how my skin will react to traveling, changing altitudes or temperatures so naturally, I pack for everything. Having been on-the-go a lot recently, I decided that it's best to pack...

Tip: if you prep the slaw before you head out for the day it can marinate for long (i.e. it will taste even better)...

Yoga Brunch Club

Not to mention, it is so important to bring attention to young people in any creative industry — and exciting. So, this one post is about “Yoga Brunch Club,” a programming series created by my girl Alice Longyu Gao...

Coconut Macaroons

Every year my mom has a little lunch to celebrate her birthday, on which I always help with all of the cooking (and baking). For years, I would spend two days making her a huge coconut layer cake that was an adaptation from an old Martha Stewart recipe. This year, however, mom wanted me to skip the long process of making the cake a try something new...
