AsianCajuns.com: Monday Inspiration: Sia - Dearest Lar, I rarely talk about my job on the blog. For whatever reason, I’ve always kept AsianCajuns relatively separate from my work in local government. I suppose it makes sense. Economic development doesn’t really have a place in a lifestyle blog. That being said, I’m making an exception today. As you know (but our readers don’t), I’ve been working with my organization’s innovation team – a group of 12 of us that is charge... http://ow.ly/2XENnq

AsianCajuns.com: KonMari Your Purse - Dear Cath You know how last fall I KonMari Method-ed our flat? Well, that Marie Kondo did not lie about her tidying magic. Our flat still stays tidy most of the time. It doesn’t mean I don’t have to put things away — there always seems to be mail sitting on the coffee table or a lone sock sqiuggling its way free of the laundry basket. But the difference is that now there is a place for it all to be put away. And it feels so satisfyi... http://ow.ly/2WQY3O

AsianCajuns.com: What to See, Do and Eat in Amsterdam - Amsterdam totally surpassed all my expectations. I’m completely in love with the glimmering, shimmering canals and curlicued brick and stone, the deliciously gooey caramel waffles and an entire museum district! It’s a shame that I always associated it the red light district and pot (not that there’s anything wrong with the latter), but it just never seemed like it would be my thing. I was utterly and completely wro... http://ow.ly/2VZFY4

AsianCajuns.com: New Things - I’ve been trying to be really good about budgeting lately since I still have a stack of hospital bills to pay off. Some days I’m more disciplined than others. I know it’s never good to buy things to make yourself feel better and feed into consumer culture, blah, blah, blah. But sometimes when you’re down, a new item of clothing or a cheap sparkly ring, is exactly what you need want. Two weeks ago I was desperate for something new and shiny ... http://ow.ly/2VqUqv

AsianCajuns.com: Cath update - Dear Readers We are so sorry things have gone a little quiet here the last few weeks. As you know from previous posts, Cath got an infection after her endometriosis surgery at the beginning of the month. She is still at home recuperating and sloughing through the last week of her heavy-duty antibiotics. I’ve been skyping her daily. Sometimes she feels good enough to sit up and chat and other days she’s too nauseated to even look at the scr... http://ow.ly/2U6Rdd

AsianCajuns.com: We are totally identical - Dear Readers Cath is back in the hospital for another few days because she developed an infection post-surgery. This is rare. Our surgeon told us this happens to 1% of his patients. I also had an infection after my endometriosis surgery. Rare, you say? This is what I think: 1) We’re totally ruining our doctor’s percentages. (Now he has to tell patients, “it’s less than 1% likely you’ll have to come back — unless, of course, yo... http://ow.ly/2TysQ4

AsianCajuns.com: 2015 Q1 Favorites - Dearest Lar, I’ve totally gotten hooked on watching favorites make up videos on YouTube. I just love hearing about real products from real women. So I figured I’d do my own favorites (not just makeup), but instead of doing a monthly favorites (I don’t buy enough things to have favorites every month), I’ll just post my favorites every quarter So without further ado, here we go! 1. Tarte Cosmetics LipSurgence and Butter Lipstick The li... http://ow.ly/2X7Bu4

AsianCajuns.com: Fig and Flower – Natural Beauty - Dearest Lar, While you’re exploring Amsterdam (finding canals, drinking green juice, buying Van Gogh postcards, etc.), I did a little exploring in my own backyard today. Fig and Flower opened up a little less than a year ago in the Poncey Highland neighborhood and I’ve been meaning to check it out ever since. Fig and Flower sells all natural makeup, skincare, and household cleaning products. So it’s basically a store ma... http://ow.ly/2VJIy9

AsianCajuns.com: Hello Again! - Dearest Readers, It’s been too long! So sorry for the radio silence. I’ve spent the past two weeks trying to get my life back to some type of normalcy. Thank you so, so, so, so much for all the wonderful words of support and kindness! I wish I could better express how much it meant (and continues to mean) to me. Last month’s surgery and post-op infection threw me for an emotional and physical loop that I’m still coming to terms with. Long... http://ow.ly/2V7zHB

AsianCajuns.com: Today I … - Dear Cath I know how miserable you feel at this moment. Those antibiotics feel like they are not only killing all the bacteria in your body but you as well. I know how exhausted your body is from fighting first the surgery and then the infection and now the drugs. I know it feels never-ending and that even watching “Poirot” for seven hours straight doesn’t take all of that away. So I hope a little distraction might help. This will be the mos... http://ow.ly/2TENSO

AsianCajuns.com: An update on Cath’s Endometriosis Surgery - Photo by Josh Norem Dear Readers Cath’s surgery went really well and she’s wrapped up warm and cozy recovering at my parent’s house in Atlanta. I’m so very grateful to Dr. Sinvervo (the endo specialist and surgeon) and his team for keeping my twinie safe and hopefully curing her of the endo and putting an end to the pain she has had to endure. Cath’s surgery was on Tuesday and she was on her way home Wednesday... http://ow.ly/2TaLj1

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.
