have a worry-free weekend + links.

both yangkyu and i woke up at 5 am to a terrible down pour. i also subsequently knocked over my coffee and got my phone and also my japan/korea travel research notes all drenched.  i was dreading that today was going to be one of those days where i would be out of my groove in what would be a very gloomy, dark and horribly wet day. but i love stories that have surprise endings -- right now it's the afternoon and the sun is out and there is a slight breeze.  so.. it's going to be a good day - a prelude to what i hope will be a good, worry-free weekend. 

do you have anything planned? 

i'm finally getting a trim. i had spent the past couple of years trying to desperately grow my hair out that i hardly got any trims. you can imagine how many split and dying ends i have right now. i can't wait to get rid of them.

i haven't done these in a while, but here are some links to start your weekend. hope you enjoy them! 

 // love these cruelty-free nail lacquers by one of the latest leaping bunny certified companies. 

 // if i should have a daughter... a great ted talk by sarah kay. 

 // i would like each of toru sanogawa's animal prints please. 

 // this gingham plaid button down is the cutest. 

 // was introduced to this etsy shop recently. 

 // downloaded for my desktop. 

 // garlic knots recipe, i've been looking for you. 

 // i like bikes. even on skirts

 // ... and adults used to say "don't play with your food." these are just.. wow

 // putting this cafe as a must-go places when we visit korea.

  3. Jane, this is so weird, haha! We have very similar weekend plans lately. It's all coincidental, but still! I think last weekend we both had a dentist's appointment scheduled, and this weekend I'm getting my hair chopped off too! I was growing out my hair for the wedding and refused to get occasional trims (I know, bad decision) because I was afraid my hair wouldn't be long enough for the up-do style I wanted. My stylist has been playfully scolding me for months now, so I'll be saying buh-bye to about 8inches of my locks!

  18. I hope your weekend was awesome! Love your optimism about it all because things can go wrong but life is cyclical - just as easily as everything can go wrong, everything will go very very right. Korea is on my list of places to one day go to as well. That cafe looks so cute!
