Posted a quick 1 minute video recap of a recent event I hosted to celebrate my Consciously Chic blog series launch. I had launched my new series on April 24th, in memory of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, where over 1k garment workers in Bangladesh died after a building clearly known with unsafe working conditions collapsed 5 years ago.
I collaborated with Amour Vert, Remake, 100% Pure, and Candicake to make this event happen during Fashion Revolution Week, to spread awareness on the conscious consumer movement. I held a clothing swap at the event as one of the many ways to keep clothes out of the landfill. Guests were encouraged to bring an item to contribute and to take an item from the swap rack! Ayesha, the founder of Remake also gave a mini speech to educate us more on how the fast fashion industry is negatively impacting the people and planet. We celebrated the rest of the night with 2 Amour Vert gift card giveaways, yummy light bites, beautifully made cupcakes and chocolate-dipped rice krispy treats from Candicake, champagne, and gift bags filled with sustainable fashion and beauty goodies.
A huge thank you to Greg (Greg W. Photo of 2NV Entertainment) for capturing the moments that night, to everyone who came out to show support, and to my sponsors for bringing my event vision to life! Photos to come soon :) Read More
Hey folks! If you follow along on my blog, you probably remember my post back in January about my new ashy hair color, where I shared details on the entire hair dyeing process. Today's post is for anyone who has a similar natural hair color and type as me (darkest brown color, fine hair) and wants to dye their hair to an ashy blonde color (and keep it that way)! I've teamed up with Sarah to make this video a reality, and we're so excited to share with you 10 tips to maintain this ashy hair color :)
Don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more beauty and style related content, and please share this video with friends who are thinking of going ashy blonde (or have recently gotten their hair done to this color)! Read More
A couple of months ago, 2NV, a media productions brand created by Wesley Wong, asked if I would be interested in being the first feature in their upcoming video docu-series, Glimpse. As I chatted with Wesley to learn more about 2NV and Glimpse, he painted his vision of producing a documentary-style film series that would showcase the stories of Bay Area artists and entrepreneurs - specifically those who are pursuing their passions and dreams.
I asked Wesley if producing media is his passion, and he admitted to me, yes. Even with a full-time job as a lawyer, his heart tugged him towards creating media that would build an emotional connection with an audience through thoughtful imagery and story-telling. This ultimately led him to start 2NV Entertainment and to his desire to create Glimpse. Along the way, he reached out to Greg Wong, a talented photographer, who ended up collaborating with Wesley as their main Photography Director to turn 2NV and Glimpse into a reality.
Being able to relate to his purpose in creating the docu-series and in pursuing one's passions, I happily agreed to work with Wesley, Greg, and the rest of the 2NV team to create the first episode of Glimpse. Last week, I posted a preview of the video on my blog. Today, I get to share the full episode with you, detailing how I got started on The Chic Diary and what it all means to me. Read More
