    Jewelry on a budget: #Rocksbox

    Normally I’m the type of person that shies away from subscription services. Something about the predictability of things coming the mail all the time and having a strict routine…(maybe it’s just the free-spirited, non-committal Gemini in me, I dunno.) So when I heard about the service Rocksbox, I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive. After I did a bit of research and saw that I could cancel at anytime, I took the plunge.

    Celebrate National Orange Blossom Day with @KriglerPerfumer & #soapandpaperfactory

    The Orange Blossom is the fragrant flower of the orange tree and in the language of flowers, it stands for Innocence and Eternal Love. Marriage and Fruitfulness.

    @FoodFete: Summer 2015

    Food Fête is an exclusive, intimate event that allows exhibitors to showcase their newest food, beverage and kitchenware products in an intimate, cocktail party setting to marketing and PR professionals. In the two and a half hours I was able to take a peek into upcoming new foods and beverages that are ready to be released this summer. The attendance list was quite impressive, with companies and brands ranging from artisanal food start-ups to familiar national brands. I visited a few choice brands like Kozy Shack, Eleni’s, and Lovin’ Scoopful, just to name a few! No doubt about it, summer 2015 is going to be packed with all sorts of new…

    A Night with the Stars @ CAPE + Verizon’s #IAM Night Out

    Ciao lovelies! This past week I was fortunate to join CAPE + Verizon’s #IAM Night Out in NYC. CAPE, or the Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment is an incredible non profit who’s goal is to shed light on Asian American Pacifics in the media. Some of the fellows from this year include Constance Wu (aka sassy mom from FRESH OFF THE BOAT) and Youtube Sensation Joseph Vincent  (You’re welcome ladies!)   The #IAM campaign was really special because it allowed these amazing self made professionals to tell the story of how they started off and how they got to where they are today. I think anyone, regardless of their heritage can…

    Hey everyone! My name is Chau (like Ciao!) and I am the latest to join in on the summer fun here! I’m a native New Yorker, born and bred in Brooklyn. I always raise my hand and say, “Right here!” when the DJ asks, “Where Brooklyn At? Where Brooklyn at?!” and I always, always fold my pizza in half.  Besides that, I am  an avid traveler (planning a round the world trip for 2016), cinephile, lover of dad jokes and fashion/beauty fan. Follow me as I explore NY one bejeweled lipstick at a time! You can also follow me and my travels around the world at www.chaufornow.com or on IG at…
