So there’s this food truck in Providence, Mama Kim’s, that parks near my office every Tuesday and serves some crazy good Korean Barbecue. For a while I went every week because I couldn’t get enough of their Beef Bulgogi. Eventually I realized this was not fiscally responsible and so I decided I needed to learn to make it myself. After trying a few different recipes I finally found one that is just as good as the food truck.  I can’t even put into words how excited I am. Time to over dose on some Bulgogi goodness:

Beef Bulgogi Marinade (for 1 pound of shredded beef): 

3 Tbsp chopped garlic (about 2 cloves)

3 Tbsp soy sauce

2 Tbsp sugar

1 Tbsp honey

2 Tbsp fresh squeezed juice from an Asian pear (I just sliced up half of a regular pear and put it in with the marinade)

1 Tbsp Japanese rice wine (mirin)

1 Tbsp sesame oil

3 green onions, finely chopped

 

Marinate the beef overnight and cook in a frying pan until it is done. Serve with rice. Boom.

Have a great day!

IMG_3067.JPGHey everyone!

Today’s outfit is casual and in a somewhat muted color palate. I’m wearing a BCBG black button down with gray skinny cargo pants from Joe’s Jeans. Smoking slippers by Ralph Lauren, sunglasses by Michael Kors, and the scarf is something I just picked up about five years ago at an airport in Germany.

I feel like having this new mirror has been great for taking photos of my outfits for the blog, but has also opened my eyes to the fact that I wear very similar outfits everyday. I guess it doesn’t hurt to have a signature style, but maybe I’ll start coming up with some new combinations every now and then to shake things up.

What do you guys think? Do you have a “uniform” that you tend to wear all the time and if so how do you break up the pattern without spending too much time getting ready?

Have a great day!

Hey everyone!

As you know I moved recently and I’ve been working to come up with a culinary routine that is both easy and not too boring. Call me crazy but with a new start at a new place I’ve been feeling inspired to be a little healthier with my food choices. I don’t want to use the word diet because, well I’ve never done one and I don’t plan to. I’m the type of person who would decide not to eat carbs anymore and then immediately go order a large pizza with breadsticks and tell myself to suck it. It’s just basic instinct to want what you can’t have, am I right? But I have been trying to find healthier foods that are both easy to prepare and enjoyable, that way I can have the best of both worlds.

So I jumped on this year-old bandwagon and tried avocado toast. And it’s good. Better than I was expecting. I’ve been putting it on a whole wheat bagel thin with some tomato and a little sea salt and it’s yummy, fresh, and filling.

Are you guys on the avocado toast trend? What are some of your favorite healthy breakfast recipes?

Have a great day!

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the poor image quality, it was pretty dark and gloomy this morning. As you can see I went for a bit of a cowboy/biker hybrid look today. My boots are Vince Camuto, worn with jeans from Joe’s Jeans, a Ralph Lauren flannel, vintage scarf, Prada sunglasses, and Michael Kors jacket and bag.

It’s can be hard to find something that is both weather appropriate and sartorially savvy when it’s so blustery and rainy out. What do you guys wear when it’s gross out?

Have a great day!

Hey everyone!

Tuesday’s are a long day for me, as I have my normal 9-5 job and then teach a lab from 7-9:30, and so I tend to dress for comfort. Today I’m wearing jeans from Joe’s Jeans and just a simple cream sweater from Karen Millen with chucks and my favorite Alexander McQueen light pink scarf with skulls made out of lace. My coat is from Zara and my bag and sunglasses are Michael Kors. These sunglasses have opened my eyes to the fact that everyone should have a crystal unibrow because it looks totally badass and glamorous.

I like this outfit because it’s casual and comfortable, but also playful like I’m an overgrown child wearing her Dad’s overcoat. What do you guys think? What would you wear for a long day of work?

Have a great day!

Hey everyone!

I finally bought a mirror over the weekend, and obviously I decided to go big or go home =p. Hopefully now I can start regularly sharing some of my outfits with you on here!

Today was a cold and lazy kind of Monday morning, and so I stuck to the basics. I’m wearing an American Apparel thermal and skinny jeans from Joe’s Jeans with a very voluminous plaid vintage scarf, a wool moto style jacket by Michael Kors, and suede booties by Tracy Reese. My bag is Michael Kors and my sunglasses are Prada. I’m so glad accessories exist, because without them I would probably look like a bum all the time haha.

What do you guys think? What are your favorite pieces for keeping warm?

Have a great day!

Hey everyone!

Since I still don’t have a place set up to take photos of my outfits in my new apartment I figured I would just make a photo of my favorite go to outfit lately on Polyvore. I’ve posted about this Brian Lichtenberg sweatshirt before and I have purchased it for myself since then. It’s super comfortable and casual without looking like you just came from the gym which is great. As it gets cooler I’ve started pairing it with button downs underneath, flannels in particular. I have a blue and green men’s one from American Eagle but the Uniqlo one pictured above is also perfect. Jeans from Joes Jeans because their default inseam is 34″ (tall girls rejoice) and then just some chucks and my Reed Krakoff boxer bag with Prada sunnies and some red YSL beauty products for a little contrast. I feel like I finally have a go to off-duty look for the weekends which is really exciting because there’s nothing better than not having to think when you’re getting dressed and still looking put together.

What do you guys think? What’s your favorite off-duty outfit?

Have a great day!
