Ok, seriously, you all NEED to know about this delicious KBBQ joint that just opened called @porkfoliokbbq . Growing up with a vegetarian Korean mom, we didn’t get to taste a whole lot of meat-based Korean dishes 🌿. After moving to LA, I’ve discovered a plethora of eye-opening tasty meat dishes in Koreatown. 🤤
.
However, I gotta say, Porkfolio really topped the charts at their new location in Arcadia. Any kind of Korean BBQ pork style you could think of, they have it. On top of the high quality tasty meats, there were Panchan options out of the roof! It was a dinner I’ll certainly be dreaming of until my next visit (definitely soon!). 🥰

Since I work from home and am always at the gym, I don’t really wear makeup every day. It’s also nice to let your skin breathe and be au naturale once in a while just to rest your skin natural state.
.
Today, I was feeling like it was time to get done up thanks to @ctilburymakeup for the makeup inspo. Her products are perfect for that natural golden hour glow. Thanks to @preendotme for sending her new collection! I’m smitten like a kitten. 😻✨

I was scrolling through my news feed on FB today and noticed, shockingly, there was no negativity on there. Really? Nothing negative? What a great way to wake up! 🤩
.
Then, of course, got hit with a horrifying video of someone getting pushed into on-coming traffic by a homeless man in DTLA...ok that was jarring. 😳
.
I realized, “Why am I letting this affect me? I can just unfollow negativity. I don’t need to see this stuff unless I choose to.” 🤔
.
It’s easy to get wrapped up in the online world where it seemingly becomes reality. Truth is, it’s not. You don’t HAVE to see the negative things floating around on the interwebz. Choose to be around people that encourage you and make you stronger and better. Unfollow and get rid of stuff that brings you down. Bad stuff propagates like wildfire on the Internet, so don’t be someone else that helps keep the flames burning. 🔥

Was feeling pretty stoked that the weather finally got a little more gloomy, then of course the LA sun decided to peek through.  #complimentaryfromTobi ☀️
.
Still, I’m loving the cozy clothing that comes with the weather. Snuggling up never felt this good in one of my favorite sweaters from @shoptobi ❤️. Thanks for sending this comfy winter sweater! Shop the sweater here: https://www.octoly.com/c/hbpm9/r/hb1wa #Tobigiftedme #shoptobi #OctolyFamily

#tbt to our unforgettable journey in Fiji. I can tell you one thing, Fiji was probably one of the most foreign cultures to me at first. I knew little to nothing about the islands, and never imagined I would have the opportunity to go there...ever! 🌴
.
After our trip, I was love struck 😍. Though the gorgeous beaches and tropical vacation getaway vibes were alluring, what truly sold me were the incredible people and the community. If the whole world could learn a lesson from Fijians it would be compassion, love for your neighbors, and to not be afraid to get a little rough and tough in the wilderness. ☀️❤️🌴
.
It’s a friendly reminder to take a step outside away from your screens. Enjoy the air, the outdoors, the people around you. Technology is an incredible innovation, but being with your friends, family and nature is where all the magic happens. ✨❤️

Thought it would be fun to take a mirror selfie...wrong. 5 minutes later, my cat knocked my full-length mirror over and broke it. You can spot her plotting its demise in the corner. 🙀

Traveling to Peru and traversing across the historical terrain of Machu Picchu was truly one of my favorite life moments to date. Not only is it one of the Seven Wonders of the world, it’s also rich with culture, mystery, and sheer grandeur. I can’t thank @inkayniperutours enough for the eye-opening experience. 🗿
.
However, one of the most memorable moments was meeting and greeting the  llamas of Machu Picchu, which are my favorite animals of all time. Rarely do I have the opportunity to share a bond with them in the Concrete Jungle that is LA. 🏙
.
Thanks to @cotzskincare they kept my skin protected and healthy at such a high altitude. Check them out and give them an add if you want to learn more information on how they are the healthier mineral sunscreen. 🌅

There’s no place like home. 🏡❤️Sometimes, it’s easy to forget that when you are traveling, working, and fixated on your goals. However, being back in my hometown with my family even for just a short while was such a wonderful and fulfilling experience. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦
.
One of my favorite parts about being in Northern California is the weather and changing leaves. Sweaters, coats, boots, and bundles of snugs are all the perks of visiting my hometown. These amazing pieces from @hellens_sampleshop were the perfect fall style picks for fall. I’m pretty much in love with this brand, and it was fun being able to share my new styles with my family.🍁❤️🍂
.
No matter how busy you are or how overwhelmed with work you get, never forget your family and friends. It’s so important to make time for those you love, because in the end, they’re all that you have. ❤️

There’s truly no place like home, and I am so grateful to be spending a little time here for Thanksgiving. Though I love Los Angeles, I do miss the changing colors in my hometown. 🍁

Huge thanks to @lindsaynicholasnewyork for these comfy and cute shorts. Love the length since they’re stylish but not showing too much bootay. 🍑💗#LindsayNicholasNewYork #LNNY .

I remember when I was a kid, I wanted to truly change the world. I thought I could save all the animals by becoming a vet and even fantasized about traveling to space. Most people would call me a dreamer, and I certainly was. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, the difference between a dreamer and a world-changer is that those who successfully impact their surroundings take action on their dreams. 💃🏻
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I just graduated from college and I was working at UCLA Medical center with stroke, Alzheimer's and dementia patients. I was following a structured path to success and rehearsing with @nylonpink at the same time. We suddenly had a HUGE offer for a tour in China! I was floored, but also in a dilemma since I knew my job wouldn't have it. 👾⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My boss gave me an ultimatum: tour or keep your position. So, what did I do? I quit my job right on the spot for the opportunity. It was a HUGE risk, but I took it. That moment was a pivotal point in my life which allowed me to truly grow to the person I am today. 💗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sadly, the tour was canceled and I was out of a job, but it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I was pushed to accomplish even greater things in a field I would have never explored. More importantly, I discovered the significance of taking risks and diffusing fear, saying yes more than no. 🎸⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stepping out of your comfort zone and taking action is truly the foundational step to make your dreams come true. However, it can be the most difficult thing to do. My advice? Go for it. Take opportunities that come to your door. Try things that are risky. Don't let fear hold you back from your dreams. You'd be surprised at what you can accomplish simply by saying,
