Dust Yourself Off

In high school, I always envisioned my 20 something self as “Katie: The Young Working Professional.” A typical day? Me serving a look in a pinstripe pantsuit, holding some sort of overpriced caffeinated drink in one hand and a manila folder in the other. Inside that folder? Obviously copies of the excel spreadsheet I tirelessly worked…

___밥 (aka Hello Junior Year)

There’s a saying that with each year of college, you resemble a different type of 밥 (rice): Freshman Year: fresh, new, hot 밥 (everyone wants some) Sophomore Year: cold, stale 찬밥 (outdated, boring) Senior Year: reheated, ready-to-go 누룽지 (back & better than ever) I always forget what type of 밥 juniors are… is this an…

VVIP

I thought I’d round up my summer with the ultimate VVIP Playlist I’ve been bumping for the past 3 months. Happy listening~ Sunday (feat. HEIZE & Jay Park) – Groovy Room gold (feat. Dean) – offonoff Location – Khalid VVIP (feat. Sik-K & Gaeko) – 조우찬 Sorry Not Sorry – Demi Lovato Energetic – Wanna One Where U At (feat….

Brunch & Bougie

I spent this past summer in LA as a intern for a PR agency on Melrose (how picture-esque does that sound), which meant all my friends from back home were forced to come and visit me (mwahaha). Kelly came for the weekend, and needless to say it was the most basic weekend I’ve ever spent…

DNCE DNCE Baby

DNCE is one of my favorite artists. Why? Their guitarist is the ultimate girl crush from South Korea (@JinJoo진주), their songs are total summer boppers, and Joe Jonas may or may not be my favorite Jonas Brother. So when Sara & I were invited to the VMA Pre-Show this past Friday (featuring Noah Cyrus, Bebe…

VMAs What’s Good

This past Sunday I was given the opportunity to cover the red carpet at MTV’s iconic Video Music Awards (VMAs). Red carpets are always funny given that pre-show press is like one big machine. Stars line the carpet, take photos, then (if they choose to do so) make their rounds to their preferred press outlets….

Please Donut Disturb (We’re Busy Eating)

When Izzy & I used to live in the dorms, we would postmate donuts from DK’s Donuts (home of the famous #onut, which we think is actually a cronut but can’t be called a cronut because of copyright reasons). Last Thursday, we finally ventured beyond Westwood (lol) to visit our favorite donut shop in person. We literally wanted…

Seoul Street Style (서울 스트리트 스타일) 

I came across photographer 이경준 (Lee Kyungjun) on Instagram (@l.k.j) a few months ago and have been obsessed ever since. He’s based in Seoul and photographs mainly urban patterns; the angles of each and every one of his photos really captivates the eye. I want to say he uses a drone, but maybe it’s just…
