In the midst of our very fabulous 2011 fashion show, Audrey’s Fashion Night Out, one of my favorite things to get all wrapped up about is the clothes.
This year, we have seven FABULOUS designers showcasing their wears. Just looking at their Fall/Winter look books got me all hot and bothered.
Here are some of my favorite picks from each line.
Look at those ruffles! And that sweet bow on the side of the gray pencil skirt? I can definitely see myself with this sexy secretary look around the office.
Rachael Yamagata, the powerfully raw voice behind songs like “Be Be Your Love” and “The Reason Why” is back with a new collection of tracks in her indie-produced album, Chesapeake.
Chesapeake charms with the edgy “Starlight” captivating our ears and “Even If I Don’t” lifting our hearts (despite the somber message). Here are some facts you may not know about our favorite no-pain-no-gain songbird.
“My stylist, Amanda, is the best, but I have no idea what looks good. Even just walking down the street, our cast is very good at that. They clean up real well and I’m like, in sweats and Nikes. I love it, but I think I should start looking nicer.” — Jenna Ushkowitz
We think Jenna looks pretty darned nice already and have compiled a few of our favorite looks from the starlet – including EXCLUSIVE quotes from our Fall ’11 Interview!
I am personally honored to know so many movers and shakers in the Asian American community and I hope many of those stories of hope and encouragement can be shared with a bigger population. Now, the government is giving us just the chance to do that.
The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders launched a challenge asking participants to submit personal stories about people who have had an impact on the people around them. The effort, called “What’s Your Story?” aims to highlight community service by Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders whose dedication to a cause has made a difference in their communities.
I picked my favorite–Naengmyeon–because it’s cold and refreshing and good for those who can’t handle too much spice. Sharing with you Seriously Asian’s Naengmyeon recipe.
Seriously Asian‘s Naengmyeon (Korean Cold Noodles)
1 package Korean cold noodles
Suggested additions to the broth
Gochujang (red chili paste)
1 pear, preferably Asian, sliced thinly
1 cucumber, thinly slice
4 hard boiled eggs, sliced into 1/3-inch slices
Pickles of any sort—carrot, daikon, burdock, etc.
Marinated raw skate
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Follow the instructions on your packet of Korean cold noodles for the length of cooking.
While the water is boiling, assemble your choice of toppings.
Place the packets of broth flavoring into the bowls, along with icy cold water. Reserve a few ice cubes for when you serve the noodles.
When the noodles are done cooking, immediately drain and rinse them in running cold water. Divide them among the four bowls and use a pair of scissors to cut clumps of noodles into more manageable lengths.
What’s your favorite cold summer meal? Share with us in comments and we may just post about it!

This TC Bank commercial freaking made me bawl like a baby and reminded me of a moment in time that changed my life forever.
I was about 20 and on a train swishing through Switzerland. I went to stand by the railing to stretch my legs. An old man beside me in sport gear decided to strike up a conversation. I found out that he was 86(!) and biking around the Swiss Alps.
That just rocked my world forever. I realized you don’t have to face aging with a white flag, surrendering your life and health just because you’re old. You can freaking bike the Swiss Alps when you’re 86.
It starts now.
It starts with a healthy diet and regular physical activities (just park near the back of the lot and walk to the grocery store, for chrissakes).
It starts with waking up each day making the decision to LIVE, LIVE, LIVE.
It starts with letting go of regrets and the past and stepping into the now and present.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this TC Bank: Dream Rangers commercial below.
Ever since I first laid eyes on Fei Wong and her delightful pixie cut in the magical Hong Kong film Chungking Express by Wong Kar-Wai, I wanted to chop all my hair off.
Wanted to is one thing. Getting the courage to take action is another.

Having never been one to obsess over my hair much, I came to a revelation recently.
My hair is thin. Asian hair thin.
This was told to me by my longtime hair cutter who, after lopping off half my hair, informed me I did not suit a certain hairstyle because of my limp locks.
So that explains why I’ve always had a hard time creating that sexy bombshell look. That explains why I hardly ever get to have my hair fall completely straight down my back. That explains how the universe was created! (Okay, so maybe not that…)
Thank goodness there is a product out there for thin-haired girls like me to achieve instant va-va-va-voom hair.
