Funky Brown Foodie: Korean Dinner at Shin Chon Garden

My honey took his favorite girls out to dinner this weekend.  In my attempt to upgrade myself and eat foods from other cultures, we ventured to Shin Chon Garden in Ellicott City.  Reviews stated it was an awesome place to go, newly renovated, very authentic, super tasty. We had two options, grill or barbecue.  We took the grill option, but we probably should have taken the bbq route. The only Korean meal I’ve ever had is fried chicken, and oh boy, it’s incredible.

While reading 5 Helpful Sites to Analyze Your Blog, they shared a link to This website actually lets you watch and analyze what people do while on your blog! Seriously…it’s a recording of people clicking links, reading articles, trying to steal your content, and all the other normal things that readers do!  It was super creepy at first, and I kind of felt like I was spying! But seriously, you should take a gander. It was totally worth it.

Style: My Name is Erin and I’m Obsessed with African Print!

It all started while watching A Different World. It was the episode when EnVogue guest starred, and Charmane, Lena and Whitley wore African Print dress. This could be one of the worst images ever, but it gives you the idea!

Then, I find this image of Nicole Ari Parker. Umm, I need this dress, like last year. This shirtdress was created by brand Kiki, based in Ghana.
