Thank you for having me on SimplySxy, the pleasure’s all mine to be featured on here. To sum it up, I was actually born in Missouri, raised in Taipei, and am now living in Southern California! I recently graduated with a Journalism degree from UC Irvine while working at Din Tai Fung, and am now working at a tech and finance firm in the OC.
Outside of work, you can find me at the gym, at home kicking it with friends, or finding new places to travel to. I’m one who prioritizes people closest to me, so I enjoy spending quality time with them as well. Growing up in a city, I love being on the go and meeting new people, so I do tell people I’m a city girl. Huge skyscrapers and a busy lifestyle definitely excite me!
How will you describe your fashion style?
Honestly, my sense of style is beyond simple. You’ll find me in Lululemon leggings, a Nike sports bra and Nike shoes on a daily basis. I gym everyday and feel the most confident and comfortable in athleisure wear, so those are definitely my go-to.
My daily makeup routine involves three steps: brows, eyeliner, and lashes. While I like to keep everything low-maintenance and simple, I still love dressing up occasionally though!
Are there any accessories or items in your wardrobe you can’t live without?
Like what I said above… I don’t think I can live without leggings or my black volleyball spandex during summer. They are definitely the most versatile, flexible, and comfortable items in my wardrobe that I rely on. (I wear leggings to the club or when I go out too!) I do wear a tiny stud necklace 24/7 as a gift from my mom.
Aside from that, I don’t really wear much. I even told my friends that in the future, a diamond ring isn’t really necessary either, I’d be perfectly fine with a band that fits in with my active lifestyle!
Do you have any favorite quotes you like to use in life?
Not necessarily quotes, but values that I hold close to me in whatever I do and however I do it. I believe in having respect, having the right attitude, to be humble, and to be loyal. Or if anything, I go with Nike’s ideology: just do it.
What hobbies or interests are you into?
I love exercising. I grew up playing sports so I implemented that into my lifestyle. I swim during summer (full on with goggles and everything), play volleyball, and gym. On the other side of the spectrum, though, I also grew up playing piano, so I’d play a piece I want to learn over and over again until I’ve perfected it. I also like people-watching while strolling around in a city, or enjoying a good cup of coffee on a rainy day.
Which is your most memorable travel experience so far?
I’ve had the luxury to travel quite a bit; but two of my favorite places would be Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Vienna, Austria. They are the embodiment of hip and elegance. There’s so much history and stories inside every street and there’s so much to see and feel; I absolutely loved it and would move there temporarily if I could. It’s places and experiences like that that drives me to explore more and to go out of my comfort zone.
Have you been in an embarrassing situation before that is funny now when looking back?
I honestly have hundreds of embarrassing moments but in this case: I was younger and didn’t know what a word meant. I was called up on stage to answer a question in front of the entire school, and ended up calling my teacher ‘bimbo’ in front of the ENTIRE school. Luckily, I got away and the teachers ended up laughing their heads off. Close call.
What turns you off on a date?
I think bad dates usually comes down to compilations of incompatibilities, but there’s two main things.
1. Bragging: I’m a pretty observant person, so I’ll notice traits and details myself or through time, there’s no need to brag.
2. Bad hygiene: this is pretty self-explanatory, but taking good care of yourself is more telling than people think.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Janice. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
My definition of sexy, for both men and women, is a combination of confidence, intelligence, and respect. It drives me nuts when someone knows what they want and what they don’t want. Keep me curious, keep me thinking, and let me learn from you as well. That, to me, is sexy.
Thank you very much again for featuring me!
