Musings of a Little Girl in the Big City


yumi the everyday moments

Welcome! My name is Yumi and I’m the girl behind The Everyday Moments.

I used to be quite obsessed with building websites and creating my own content in high school, so it is a great feeling to be back blogging again over 10 years later!

After all these years, I was inspired to start my own website again to showcase my interests and share travel tips, beauty reviews, easy recipes, as well as sharing ideas on maintaining overall wellbeing especially living in a crazy of a city as Manhattan!

I guess now would be a good time to talk a little history about myself: some years after I graduated college, I still had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. At the time after a 20-year stint in Connecticut, my family moved back to Japan and I really had no reason to stay in the suburbs anymore. Operating under the assumption New York is exciting and where my best job opportunities would be, I said good bye to the surburbs and moved to… the city. *cue in Whitney Port’s voice*

After going through a few jobs that weren’t quite for me, I began to wonder what I could be really passionate about in life. Eventually I went back to school to get my Masters degree in Marketing and I now work as a marketer for Japanese cosmetics brands, which I love doing!

I’m so excited to have you here! If you have any questions for me feel free to shoot me an email here.
