Poster Zines

I made some Poster Zines that I've brought with me for my shows in Korea, Singapore, and soon in Tokyo & Osaka. I hope you like them!

On the inside are a bunch of polaroid pictures I took from my home, places in L.A., Kauai, and NYC.

Each zine was hand stamped by myself (and with the help of Mike and Wendy -- thanks guys!!!).

Day 3 in Korea

I'm writing to you from my family's house in Korea. My first 2 days here have been a whirlwind of fun so far!

As soon as we landed, I was rushed to MBC Studios to do a live radio interview with legendary DJ Bae Chul-Soo. He's just as friendly he looks. And his questions were great! (I didn't get any pictures with him because my camera was still in my suitcase.)

The very next morning I did another live radio interview with another legendary DJ, Kim Chang-Wan at SBS Studios. He was so funny. He's in his bicycling clothes because he rides to and from work every day!

This is the "lobby" of the SBS building.

Me and Kim Chang-Wan

We had a little lunch at a Korean-fusion restaurant. Look at how perfect this salad is!

Then I did a photo shoot for Korean Esquire Magazine, which is coming out this September.

Here we are choosing outfits for the shoot.

Here I am in the makeup chair. This is the "before" picture.

And here is the "After". :)

Then I did an interview for F.OUND Magazine, who I'm now in love with! I have to learn Korean just so I can read these magazines! I'll be in their 1 year anniversary edition in September.

Now I'm with my family where we're about to make some Mandu (yummy Korean dumplings). I better get out there and help them! My husband is smashing garlic as I type this.

No Distractions

I've been blogging a lot less recently. I think I've subconsciously been avoiding my computer. I'm gearing up for a week long writing excursion where I'll be phone-less and email-less. Trying to cut out as many distractions as I can. This is a new experiment for me.. we'll see how it goes.

So alas, as I'll be m.i.a. for another week, I'd like to leave you with these 2 things:

The Creative Process by Paulo Coehlo (which I discovered in Vol. III of Bullett Magazine)


Have a great week doing all the things you like to do...

Friends, Fresh Produce, & Fish

Our 4th of July was filled with friends, fresh produce and fish from the local markets.
[ the latter 2 were consumed by the former ]

This corn and avocado salad with a cilantro-lime dressing was one of my fav's.
I will try to get the recipe for you!

This yellowtail collar was just one of the beautiful seafood delights we enjoyed.

This was all made possible thanks to my husband who is a pro in the kitchen. Which works out perfectly since he loves cooking and I love eating! <3

I hope everyone had a safe, fun and yummy weekend!
