AsianCajuns.com: Transitions - Hi Lovely Readers! So Cath was here and then what felt like a blink of the eye she was gone again! Six days is just not enough time. We galavanted around Edinburgh and Glasgow eating lots of nice food and drinking lots of nice drinks. I can’t believe it’s been just a few days since she left because it feels like weeks. But I shouldn’t whinge. I’ll see her in seven weeks time in Atlanta! I’m both so excited to be back stateside and extremely sad to be leaving E...

AsianCajuns.com: A Road Trip Around the Highlands - While the rest of the Northern Hemisphere swelters under unbearably humid climes, those of us in Scotland dream of heat-soaked skin and a cloudless sky. To those of you sweating it out some place horrendously sticky, you just have to believe me when I say this road trip was magical because of how hot and sunny it was! The Highlands are beautiful every time of the year, even in the pouring rain or a dark, eery mist, but...

AsianCajuns.com: An Outfit Post! - Shirt H&M (old) | Leggings Marks & Spencer | Shoes Ferragamo I don’t usually do outift posts anymore. Cath still inspires me with her style posts, but I honestly seem to wear about the same five basic outfits … mainly centred around stretchy trousers. There are a few reasons for my sartorial shrinkage. Around the time I moved to Scotland four years ago, I really cut back on my shopping. Part of that was just down to having very limited... http://ow.ly/30JGgD

AsianCajuns.com: Charleston - “I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality … I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” – Martin Luther King, Jr. I’ve been feeling so sad since Wednesday night’s shootings. Maybe using a Dr. King quote seems like a cliche, but it made me feel hopeful even though th... http://ow.ly/30oqCe

AsianCajuns.com: Work Appropriate Stretchy Pants - Isaac Mizrahi 24/7 pants | Banana Republic top | J.Crew Factory flats Here’s a couple of things that I never thought I would mention on this blog in a million years: Wearing pants with an elastic waistband to work. Purchasing clothes from QVC.com. Well, the day has come where at the ripe old age of 31 (almost 32), I’ve given up with trying to be cool and am wearing stretchy pants in a professional setting. And those pan... http://ow.ly/2ZN0em

AsianCajuns.com: The Best At Home Pedicure Trick - Butter nail polish in Trout Pout I love getting pedicures – especially if I go with a friend and we look at trashy magazines and hilarious Instagram accounts together. It’s the best! Too bad* I’m trying to save money this summer, so I’ve cut out spa visits completely and do my own pedicures at home. I’ve never had a lot of patience with painting my nails and I end up coloring outside of the lines. So here’s how I get ar... http://ow.ly/2Zy088

AsianCajuns.com: Packing for a Not-So-Summery Vacation - In less than two days (TWO!!!) I’ll be on a plane heading towards Lar/Scotland – woohoo! I’m so excited, it’s going to be impossible for me to concentrate at work for the next few days. Lar and I haven’t seen each other in person in almost 10 months. I never thought there would be a time in my life when I wouldn’t see my twin sister for more than 10 weeks let alone 10 months. Ridiculous. Do you know what else is ridiculous? The whole ...

AsianCajuns.com: A Summer Wedding Outfit -   I totally love how Lar has simplified her wardrobe. I’m trying to do the same, but I’m going at a much slower pace than her. I did pretty well with my last trip to the mall, but I did break down two weekends ago and buy this dress for a friend’s wedding.   BB Dakota dress | Michael Kors purse | Luxury Rebel heels | Jennifer Zeuner bracelet | Topshop ring     Just like Lar, I’m struggling with finding a balance between simplif... http://ow.ly/30VgtZ

AsianCajuns.com: Lovely Edinburgh - Matt and I have two months left before we move back to the States after four years in Edinburgh. Because I’m a mushy sentimentalists, I’m already starting to get very nostalgic. Edinburgh is such a beautiful city. These pics above are all places I pass every day on the way to work. Yup, I walk by a Castle (or what essentially looks like Hogwarts), every single day and it’s about a five minute walk from my front door. But I have to tha... http://ow.ly/30sihE

AsianCajuns.com: Springtime in London! - London is one of my most favourite places in the world. It’s one of those places I always feel at home — even though I’ve never lived there! I love the hustle and bustle of an international city mingling with gobs of history. I love walking down Brick Lane sniffing food stalls full of bubbling curries and freshly baked bread as much as I like people watching in Soho whilst slurping lemon, basil sorbet (because that’s a thing!) an... http://ow.ly/309LRz

AsianCajuns.com: 2015 Q2 Favorites - Here’s my second favorites blog post for the year. In my first post I mentioned that I’ll only do these every quarter because I don’t think I have enough favorites to make it a monthly thing. So without further ado, here are the seven things I’ve been loving this quarter. 1. Mossimo sneakers – I know these are kind of passé, but I’ve been looking for a replacement for my black TOMs that I wore out last summer. These required no break... http://ow.ly/302zLo

AsianCajuns.com: What I Eat to Feel Good - I started changing what I ate about four years ago when my endometriosis was getting more severe. Before I made the change, I remember thinking that being a vegetarian was really tricky. How can you eat every meal without meat?! Fast forward four years later and I eat a mostly vegan and wheat free diet. Old me would have been picking her surprised jaw off the floor looking at new me (and then had another cronut once she got her... http://ow.ly/2ZFQKz

Twin Sisters Blogging An Ocean Apart
Introduction
We (Cath and Lar) created AsianCajuns in April 2007 as a creative outlet to share all the things we love: style, fashion, art, food, literature etc. We're twins - part Chinese American and part French Cajun and love Peking duck and gumbo with equal fervor. In September 2011, Lar moved to Edinburgh, Scotland officially made AsianCajuns an international blog! In addition to sharing things that inspire us, we now use the blog to stay in touch with each other.
