About moi…

Hello fellow bloggers!  I’m Karen and I am a newbie at blogging… I feel like there are just too many social media outlets and sometimes I think I’m just too old to keep up with all of this mess.   But to support Global Citizen initiatives, better to blog than killing trees on journeys, right?   I do miss the actual ‘pen to paper’ feel…  here’s to acclimation of the new genre!

I’m a East Coast transplant (originally from HK), specifically the capital of the financial meltdown – good ‘ol New York City!!!

In my next life… I would love to be a personal shopper – – as I may have missed my calling in my teens & 20s… because like all my gen X peeps, we were brainwashed to want to work in banking!

My first love… high-end bags – aka- my Achilles’ heel – I own way too many and once in a while I do try to clean house and find them new homes.

The 'bag' every girl, woman - old & young should have in their closet...  classic but not overbearing

My 2nd love… is cooking delicious meals for my family and friends, those lucky bastards!

I will share a little of everything… and as candid as possible.   Sometimes it might just be venting about everyday life.
