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 had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. At the time I had recruiters calling me from NYC, a major city that was a little over an hour from where I had lived in Connecticut. Thinking New York is where my best job opportunities were and with full of naivety about what living in Manhattan would be like, I said good bye to surburbia 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.
