jenk food x The Sage Syndicate Photoshoot

Recently, the creative community here in San Diego has got me ultra pumped. The resources to keep you motivated and inspired as a creative freelancer are pretty flippin’ abundant. One of those rad local resources is The Sage Syndicate. Backed by fellow boss babes, The Sage Syndicate acts as a hub for female professionals looking…

Salud

I always like trying new places, but there are some spots that I return to again and again. One of those places is Salud in Barrio Logan. Now, Barrio Logan was one of those unsavory locations in San Diego that most people avoided. Just from its appearance, people avoided it. Unfortunate because the most delicious…

Summer Road Trip to Zion National Park

I have no idea how to relax. Relaxing involves having to sit still for prolonged periods of time and just… existing. It’s just not a vibe I understand. Maybe it’s an untreated form of anxiety, but if I’m not up and doing something, I feel like I’m wasting time. Anyone else feel this way? Cuz I…

jenk food x Kimposed New Apparel Line Photoshoot

If I had the opportunity, I’d go on photoshoots all day, every day. I love location scouting, hunting for unusual backdrops, and chasing that golden hour glow. But when I travel, I don’t bring along a bunch of models to shoot and, honestly, I feel awkward “modeling” in front of the camera. Sure, I do it…

Food & Drink Guide: Seattle

A good friend of mine is heading to Seattle soon and I bombarded her with texts of what to do, eat, and see in Seattle. Thankfully, she’s super patient and appreciates my quirks, I think 😉 To avoid that next time someone asks me about Seattle, I’ll save them the text rampage and direct them…

Where to Eat in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

I’ve never visited Southeast Asia. I know. Shocker. It seems like everyone has gone to Thailand over the past three years. Me? I’ve just never had the opportunity to and traveling there wasn’t very high up on my list. Let’s just say I’m not a huge fan of hot, humid weather. But when my cousin suggested…

Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve

Unless you’ve been shut indoors without any connection to the Internet — besides to this blog for some reason, you’ve probably heard that wildflowers are blooming everywhere in California. And of course, I had to see this recent “superbloom” with my own eyes. I decided to head to Antelope Valley to smang on some poppies….

9 Items You Should Pack for Coachella Camping

Coachella starts Friday, but thousands, including yo gurl, will be venturing to the Empire Polo Fields today. As I’m scrambling to pack everything I need to camp (this will be my 6th time?!) out there, I thought I’d share some of my must-have items to make Coachella camping a success, especially for those going to Weekend…

BLD: Los Angeles – Day 1

Los Angeles is chock full of food options. From cheap eats to fine dining, LA’s food scene is one-of-a-kind. Below is how I’d spend a full day in one of my favorite food places in the world. As always, use each post to build your own food itinerary for BLD. CITY: Los Angeles BREAKFAST Where…

Review: Osprey Daylite Daypack

I love bags. Not purses. Like built-for-utility, well-designed bags. I mean, don’t get me wrong. A nice purse always catches my eye, but I always go for function over looks, first. And if you know me at all, I have an unhealthy number of bags in my possession. I put bags inside bags. To paint…
