Peptides are the building blocks of proteins, offer many of the structures in the body – including hair, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. They form the hemoglobin in the blood, which carries oxygen around the body to the muscles and organs. Peptides are also the major building blocks for enzymes that catalyze chemical reactions of cellular functions, and provide the signals on the outer surface of cells can communicate their body systemically. Peptides have many uses, and most of them are necessary for life.

Silk

Silk is a chain of peptides formed in a structure called a beta-pleated sheet. Silk is strong, light and durable because of the way and the peptides bind protein folds. Silk is produced from spiders and some worms. Peptide structure is essential for the survival of organisms to catch food and protection from the elements.

Collagen

Collagen has been a focus for cosmetic industries, as the cure for wrinkles. Collagen is a part of the skin that makes tight and firm as well as maintaining the appearance of wrinkles. The sun destroys collagen, causing it to die prematurely. Several companies offer collagen cosmetics products to reverse the progression of wrinkles. Moisturizing also protects collagen damage, leaving the healthier skin.

HIV Treatment

HIV is an RNA virus that infects immune cells. More specifically, T cells are infected, inhibiting the body’s ability to destroy invading microbes. Researchers at Purdue University have developed enzymes that prevent dimerization of the HIV structure. Inhibition of HIV bonds allows drugs that interfere with virus binding to cells, limiting the number of infections in people.

Antibiotics

Peptides are the building blocks of proteins, and proteins are hemoglobin. Hemoglobin circulates oxygen within the air inhaled tissue and organs within the body. However, researchers in the USA discovered that hemoglobin also helps in protecting bacteria from entering into the body.

This year, I had an unorthodox Thanksgiving, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that I have so much to be thankful for. Even though I’m 3,000 miles away from my family, I know how lucky I am to be where I am, and I’m so grateful for all the blessings this year has brought me. And after all, I did celebrate Thanksgiving – albeit two weeks early. My parents scrambled together all the family they could (not to mention an amazing feast) so that I would be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner while I was home back in the beginning of November. I got to do all of my favorite holiday rituals like making the pumpkin pie (although my mom always makes the crust – she’s the best at it!) and setting the table. It was definitely a highlight of my much needed trip home. So whether you’re with or without your family today, reflect on the things you’re grateful for and most of all have a happy Thanksgiving!

It’s no secret that I love Anthropologie. In fact, every time I walk into their store I’m taken aback at the whimsical decorations that adorn their walls and the beautifully unique clothes that hang on their racks. I could really spend hours in that store, just looking around and finding inspiration from everything they offer. One of my favorite parts of Anthro are their home goods and lately I’ve been drawn to their super cute teacups. They have so many neat options in beautiful colors and patterns. Here are a few of my favorites:

Ahh this post makes me want to get back in bed with a cup of tea and stay there all day with a good book! Sadly, class and work are calling! Have a good weekend everyone xoxox

The other night, after FaceTiming with my nieces, a realization struck me – the sun was about to set and that night was a full moon. Shooting up out of my bed, I knew there was only one place I wanted to go – this little secret spot I discovered on one of my many afternoon strolls through the city. One day, I’d stumbled across George Sterling Park, which I soon realized (after climbing three sets of steep stairs) had one of the best views of the Golden Gate in the city. That’s the thing about San Francisco, you always have to work to get anywhere – but once you do it’s 100% worth it – the views from the tops of the hills in this city are breathtaking. After staring at the view for a while, I left the park, and walked uphill even farther until I reached Lombard (aka the windiest road in the world). Instead of walking down it’s twist and turns, I went the opposite direction down Hyde towards Fisherman’s Wharf. I don’t know what made me turn left at the unassuming sidewalk in front of the Norwegian Church, but my life will be forever changed because I did. What seems like a sidewalk leading to nowhere (except someones yard that I was undoubtedly trespassing on) led to an incredible panoramic view of the city like I had never seen before. In the daylight it was spectacular, and that night, with the full moon, I knew it would be even more amazing. I have to say, despite how happy I am with how these pictures turned out, it could never replicate the feeling of standing on that random concrete path in some rich person’s yard and thinking what a magical place this city is and how blessed I am to even witness the beauty it holds.

It is not sunny in the Bay area today. In fact, it’s been gloomy and rainy since yesterday. Perhaps this dreary weather is the reason why I find this Southern California bungalow so appealing.The rooms are filled with bright sunshine, there are lots of green plants, and the earth tone color of the interiors are calm and inviting. Not to mention that closet space (a wide open room dedicated to colorful maxi dresses and a seat lined with fur?!?!) is what dreams are made of. But probably my favorite part of this house is the outdoor living space – which looks perfect for soaking up those glorious sun rays. Now someone get me to SoCal stat!

Desktop14Today marks a milestone in my life – I start my first full-time job and I couldn’t be more excited! But because my new position is outside of the city, I’ll be doing some variation of walking/busing/riding the train everyday. So what better way to celebrate my new commuter lifestyle by going shopping for some of the things that will make my transition into the real world easier? After consulting with numerous friends who have been doing the whole commuter thing for a while now (I’m so late to the game) I came up with this list of must-have items for my new morning and evening routine. Some of them I’ve already purchased (like the Fossil bag – it was so hard to choose which one I wanted, Fossil has totally upped their game recently!) and some of them are still wants (the bike – hello, Christmas present!) but I’m convinced all of them will make my new full work day that much better.

1/a bag that can carry it all :: 2/a travel mug for on-the-go tea :: 3/a lightweight bike :: 4/a cute lunch bag :: 5/a comfortable walking shoe :: 6/a stylish pouch to hold train tickets/bus passes :: 7/extra phone chargers :: 8/grab + go snacks

The beginning of November was a whirlwind for me. After accepting an awesome job offer, I jetted back to the East Coast for the first time in three months to spend some time with my family before the hustle and bustle of the real world began. Ten days at home was just what I needed – I was able to enjoy an early Thanksgiving feast with my family, have a sleepover with my nieces, go out in DC with my best friends from college, and get some quality rest. Perhaps my favorite part of being home (other than driving my beloved yellow submarine) was basking in the glory of the East Coast autumn. On my first full afternoon home, I took a long walk down the road I grew up on, which I used to run all the time when I lived there. Back then, I needed my iPod blaring in order to be motivated enough to run the full three mile loop, but this time I left my headphones at home. After living in a city for a while, something about the quiet stillness of country life is inexplicably appealing and I didn’t want anything to get in the way of me enjoying it.

As a kid, I loved Halloween. I have fond memories of getting dressed up, eating pizza and popcorn balls at my babysitter’s house, and then going door- to-door in her neighborhood because the farm I grew up on wasn’t conducive to trick-or-treating. I remember being so excited when the first children of the night would run up to her door, costumed and elated, and we would get to hand out candy to them before we left to do our own scavenging. Somewhere along the way though, Halloween lost its luster and I’m (sort of) ashamed to say that these days, the only thing I like about Halloween is the candy. Horror films freak me out, carving pumpkins is too messy, and I just don’t particularly like dressing up in costumes. Yes, candy is the only thing about Halloween that I truly enjoy anymore. But don’t fret, I won’t ruin the holiday for those of you who love it with a rant about my anti-Halloween tendencies. Instead, I’ll share these beautiful Halloween-esque photos with you and wish you a safe and happy all Hallow’s Eve!

The weather in San Francisco is sort of always the same. Days are always cool and brisk, the sun always shines at some point, and more often than not, the fog rolls in by mid-evening, blanketing the streets in mist. So when my sister asked the other afternoon on the phone if it was turning to fall here, I couldn’t really say yes or no for sure. It’s kind of always fall here except for the foliage – some leaves change but for the most part, flowers are still blooming and trees are still green. But yesterday morning, I made a point of taking a really long stroll around the city to see what true signs of fall I could find. And I’m happy to report that I found stoops decorated with pumpkins, mums planted in flower pots, and fake spiderwebs lining the bushes – just like back East.
