“Slightly sweetened sticky rice with a hint of coconut topped with sliced strawberries and mangoes. A little twist to the traditional mango sticky rice, this dessert is simple to make and delicious, perfect for an indulgence after dinner.”


“I love mango sticky rice. It’s one of the things I look forward to when I eat at Thai restaurants. One of the things I look forward to but almost never order because I’m too full from dinner. Now, if I can make it at home, then I can have it any time I want, right?”

“There are two ways to do this, both of which are pretty simple. If you have a rice cooker, cook the sticky rice or short grain rice the way you normally would. Then add the rice and coconut milk to a skillet over low heat. Once the coconut milk has been incorporated, remove the rice from…

Petite Girls Guide

Wearing the Wrong Bra Size



We’ve been told many times that what what you wear underneath your clothes is just as (if not more) important than the clothes themselves. Wearing the wrong undergarments can ruin your outfit and make you extremely uncomfortable. Still, many women continue to make bra mistakes every day.”

Let’s Play Ball

The Asian Superwoman



Ball Reverse Hip Extension

Rest your belly on the Stability ball with your palms and toes touching the floor. Engage your core and find your balance. Slowly lift your legs up until you feel your Glutes tighten and hold for 3-5 seconds. Start to lower your legs down, with control, and repeat. Do 4 sets of 20.



Butt Roll

Stand about a foot in front of the Stability ball. Extend one leg behind you and gently place it on top of the ball. Slowly bend your knees, while allowing the ball to roll forward and hold for 3-5 seconds. Repeat on the other leg. Do 4 sets of 20. This exercise strengthens balance and focuses on your Hamstrings and Glutes.




Rear Raise

Rest your forearms on the Stability ball and assume a plank position. Clasp your hands together and slowly lift your right leg as high as you can…

There is a growing dependence on search for information in the digital world. In fact, 89 percent of consumers use Google and other search engines to find information about products, services, and businesses prior to making purchases. And of those people, 87 percent won’t scan past page one of search results.

Google continues to improve its search engine so that users receive the most relevant content to their searches. Public relations professionals need to recognize the importance of having an SEO strategy and integrating Google Tools, such as Google AdWords and Google Analytics into that strategy.


Google AdWords is a pay-per-click marketing service that allows you to create and run ads for your organization. You can bid on the keywords you want to generate your ads appearing in the search engine results page. Google decides which ads are displayed and in which position based on each user’s maximum bid and quality score. Having a high…

The Petite Diaries: Boyfriend Jeans

The Striped Complex

Today on The Petite Diaries, we will be talking about styling boyfriend jeans specifically for petite women. Boyfriend Jeans can look a little daunting at first  but with the right amount of fabric and styling, we too can rock the boyfriend jeans. I used to be afraid of the trend, although I spent countless hours pinning looks on Pinterest trying to find the right style for me . After much research and venturing out to different retailers, I found my pair! Although I need to alter it for sizing ( It’s a very loose fitting size 1 ), I believe the lenght, color, and distressing is perfect. I have used it and styled it with cardigans and form fitting tops as well as paired it up with heels and wedges. I will be showing you soon how I have styled them! In the meantime I wanted to give you some…

Look of the Week


The look of the week, this week, is a pretty pink skirt, navy blue button-up, tailored shirt, with matching hat and belt. I chose this look this week because it is one that is soft, lovely, timeless. The baby pink skirt is high-waisted and pleated all around. The pleats are soft and elegant, so I guess they’re today’s updated version of the “uptight” pleats. The soft pink compliments the navy blue, quite well. It is a very muted pink, so it’s perfect for fall. The belt is really nifty, with it’s design on the front, and exact match to the skirt and hat. The hat is a trilby hat, with a pink bow wrapped around the top of the hat, again, giving that “soft” feel to the look. The model’s shoes are black and white peep-toe heels, but there are so many options of shoe color that would look smashing! From tan, camel, off-white, navy, and more… I’m sure this outfit is an easy look to pull off! It just takes a nicely-fitted shirt, flowy skirt, matching accessories, and you’ve got my Look of the Week! Don’t forget the hat! It’s what makes the outfit POP!

 Don’t forget to wear your hair down, with lots of soft, curly locks. This is crucial for pulling off this look as “soft”, instead of just another skirt and shirt outfit. It’s all in the details! Accessorize til your heart is content!
