Dine Out : Atoboy

January 22, 2018
Atoboy NYC, Atoboy Review, Korean Banchan,Banchan

If you’ve ever dined out at Korean restaurants, you're probably familiar with banchan, the side dishes that are served along with rice which are an integral component of the meal. At Atoboy, these side dishes become the focus as they're married with Western ingredients and techniques along with the small plate dining concept. The modern Korean eatery is helmed by Junghyun Park, the former chef de cuisine at Jungsik, the first Korean restaurant in the US to be awarded two Michelin stars. The name comes from an old Korean word “Ato” that means “gift.” Located in Nomad behind a low key facade that one could easily miss if not looking for it, the restaurant has a decidedly industrial meets sparse vibe with concrete walls and minimally detailed wood tables and chairs.

Eye Candy : Son Tae Young for Grazia

I'm so over the cold weather and currently fighting off bronchitis but somehow winter is looking quite charming and idyllic in this Grazia editorial that finds Son Tae Young frolicking in snowy Hokkaido. The fabulous outfits showcased here probably have something to do with it as I'm finding the styling to be quite inspirational. I've settled into a winter uniform of sorts and now I'm thinking I need to pull out my colorful printed skirts and rock more saturated hues. That's one way to fight the winter blues...

Currently Coveting

January 11, 2018

I'm definitely all about staying warm lately and some of the items on this wish list reflect that.

1. Chinti and Parker Cashmere Sweater
Cashmere sweaters a a big part of my winter uniform and this one which is both practical and playful totally appeals to my aesthetic.

2. Isabel Marant ร‰toile Track Pants
Leave it to Isabel Marant to create a pair of smart looking track pants that look like they could be easily dressed up or down. I could totally see these styled with a blazer, blouse and a pair of heels!

3. Carolina Amato Leather & Cashmere Gloves
I usually wear mittens for warmth but they're not the most practical when I need to do things. I really like how this pair combines warmth and function.

4. Hunter Luxury Shearling Insoles
I like to alternate between my snow boots and Hunter boots but the latter offer little in the way of warming so I think adding a pair of these insoles might help in the winter.

5. Sonix Cherry iPhone X Case
I went with a streamlined case when I got my iPhone X and while it's sleek, I'm looking for one with more protection. This one has the cutest cherry design and it is also military drop test certified and  compatible with wireless charging.

6. Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers
I think the first time I ever spotted a pair of Golden Goose sneakers was on Song Joong Ki in Descendants of the Sun and since then it's like they're everywhere. I love how they come with that perfect already broken in look.

7. Cypers Hand Warmer
This nifty little device doubles as a two in one hand warmer & power bank and I need one!

8. Boy Smells Coiffure Candle
We're currently burning the Boy Smells Prunus candle which is just lovely so we want to try this one next. It has a scent that incorporates the rich, steeping teas of Indonesian tree bark and Japanese flowers, nutmeg clove and vanilla which sounds intoxicating.

9. ban.do Play Nice Exercise Mat
My old yoga mat has definitely seen better days and this colorful one looks like it would make a nice replacement.

You can always check out my running wish lists in the Shop With Me section on the blog. What are you coveting?
