Get Apollo x Subtle Asian Dating


I had an amazing time hosting the Subtle Asian Dating meetup with Tiffany at Ichi Cellar this past Thursday!  I collaborated with Get Apollo  last year for their little commercial before they launched their app and this time I hosted their event!  For those who have no idea what Get Apollo is, it's an app that lets you know where the best place to head out for your night out.  They basically have a live update on how packed the club is or how long the line is outside along with the guy to girl ratio.  It's easy to use and super convenient!  As for the Subtle Asian, this group is based on Facebook and became a huge part of the Asian community all around the country.  They were featured on The New York Times and the New Yorker.

Make sure you follow me on Instagram for future events updates!

Blonde vs. Brunette


I've been wanting to go back to being a brunette for a while, so I bought a wig to see how dark hair will look on me.  Based on the comparison photos, what do you guys think?  I've been a blondie for a little more than a year now and it really is high maintenance to keep up.  Root touch-ups every 3-4 weeks, not washing your hair as long as you can (since your hair is stretchy & damaged), use a special type of shampoo and your hair is dry.  It looks nice for a while but it really doesn't last long until you see your roots creeping out.
Most likely, next month I'll go back to being a brunette and let my hair take some break from bleaching.  As everyone asks, do blondes have more fun?  I think it depends on their personality instead of hair color but it was nice to go out of my comfort zone and dye my hair a color that I never thought I would have.
