    Always Uttori INTJ June Challenge

    Always Uttori INTJ June Challenge It’s almost June and that means it’s time for the Always Uttori INTJ June Challenge! In May, I challenged you to find an inspirational place. How did the challenge go for you? Where did you find inspiration? For me, I found unexpected inspiration on a hike through Kadoorie Farm, which sits on the mountain, Kwun Yum Shan in Hong Kong. I’m not much of a hiker, but went on a guided tour and even though it was rainy and overcast, the experience of coming up into the clouds and watching them twist and move over the mountains was inspiring. Additionally, the opportunity to be surrounded…

    Always Uttori Hong Kong Food Guide

    Always Uttori Hong Kong Food Guide Welcome to the Always Uttori Hong Kong Food Guide. Hong Kong is one of the major food capitals of the world. The food options are numerous and oh so delicious. I’ve barely scratched the surface of Hong Kong food during my time in the country, but I’ve created a starter list of a few spots that you may want to try if you’re planning a visit to the region. Some are well-known, and others are a little off the beaten path. All of the spots on the list are definitely worth an uttori thumbs up. Bon appetite. Sham Shui Po If you’re not looking…

    Spring Fashion Girl Boss Fierce Look 8

      SPRING FASHION GIRL BOSS FIERCE, LOOK 8 What does a fierce girl boss wear on Casual Fridays? Preppy classics, that’s what!  Our Spring Fashion Girl Boss Fierce Look 8 has you covered. The destination shirt (and destination shirts are always in because who wants to forget their trip to the capital of fashion?) paired with a high-waisted skirt is off-duty, casual style girl boss. It’s still professional, but the focus is approachable and friendly. The trend from high-end designers is toward what some are calling modest fashion, which is reflected by longer hemlines and covered arms. This skirt is a bit on the shorter side of the modest trend,…

    Introvert Survival Guide

    INTROVERT SURVIVAL GUIDE Although this post  has been planned for months, it wasn’t until yesterday, Monday of this week, that I really knew what I wanted to write for this Introvert Survival Guide. Survival guides are popular, but implicit in the title of a survival guide for introverts is the cultural idea that introverts are fragile, barely able to walk outside to the mailbox. And while it’s true that, for introverts, the world can be overwhelming at times, especially if you fall under the category of highly sensitive, this guide does not offer advice on not sweating the small stuff because it’s all small. The reality is that we live…
