It’s Good Housekeeping’s 17th anniversary, and mommies, it’s your month, too! Enjoy meaty reads on everything relevant to you—from deliciously simple cake recipes to stories of compassion during Pope Francis’s visit.
I've always loved the idea of weddings. Whether extravagant and ostentatious (think horse-drawn carriages, a mile-long train, and multi-tiered cakes) or simple and no frills (DIY decor, family recipes, and email invites), weddings are meant to be beautiful, unforgettable, and a celebration of love.
And then there's the dress. Actually, scrap that. Fashion-wise, it's not just about the dress. It's about the
entire look. After all, you can't talk about the gown without thinking of the shoes. And the makeup. And the hairstyle, the nail polish, the jewelry, and the bouquet to go with all that.
Last week, I was able to explore Cambodia with my family. Planning to have your own "temple run" adventure there soon? Here's a list of activities that you should try!
1. Get up early and wait for the sunrise at Angkor Wat.
Angkor Wat is truly a sight to behold at sunrise, so make sure you don't miss out on this!
I owe a lot of things to my dad. I may not tell him these things (we're not a particularly vocal family), but I hope it comes through in other ways. Let's start with the mundane.
I blame my dad for my bad eyesight. See, Dad loves to read. Growing up, it was Dad who always had a book in his hand, the many titles accumulating in our house. Mafia novels by Mario Puzo are his favorite—though I did get him hooked on the Harry Potter series (his favorite character's Sirius Black!). I remember flicking through one of those gangster books once and getting appalled at the photos of crime scenes interspersed between pages.
Not even North Korea's constant threats, it seems, could deter me from visiting Seoul. With cold weather clothing in my luggage and my boyfriend in tow, I recently flew to South Korea's capital with high hopes for one memorable vacation.
And one truly memorable vacation it was! I've been to quite a few popular destinations abroad, but there's just something about Seoul that captured my heart. While I appreciated the city's firm grasp on its storied past, it was Seoul's quirky, energetic vibe that truly spoke to me. If you're young, carefree, and—dare I say it—in love, I suggest you get lost at least once in your life in this charming metropolis.
