Hi there! I’m Catherine, a 24-year-old style blogger who finds immense happiness from learning about synaptic pruning, finding the perfect chelsea boots, and eating soup dumplings.

Born in Canada, raised in Hong Kong + Beijing, and now based in Boston (soon-to-be San Francisco), my style is influenced by everything from architecture to food (as well as a very glamorous mother). It evolves everyday, and this blog is for me to share bits that make me feel my happiest and most confident. Hope you find something worth your while!

    Love the combo of facts you’ve included in your About Me haha. I got to work on mine. Sometime during my time off over the holidays I hope. As for Chelsea boots, I’ve yet to add a flat heeled boot to my collection. Just got 3 pairs of booties and 1 pair of below the knee riding boots. Also looking into OTK boots!

      Haha thank you so much for stopping by Thuy! I love yours too, especially the “trying of weird foods” part. 🙂 As for boots, sounds like you have a fabulous collection growing! I feel like you can never have enough pairs 😉
