Laura Jung Shares Her Fave Restaurants + Talks Self-Care

Content creator and blogger Laura Jung dishes on her top 3 restaurants, her ideal day off, and some of her style icons in this Sundays feature interview. Scroll down to read more about the NYC-based foodie:

What does your typical day at work look like?
Every day is a little different, depending on what I have on the agenda. It’s one of the perks of working for yourself! Some mornings start off with a workout, some with a breakfast event or meeting or some with just working from home until I’m ready to get on with my day. In between meetings, shooting photos and attending events, the bulk of my day is really just spent on my computer, answering emails, editing photos or creating content for the blog. I just realize this doesn’t sound as glamorous as my life may look online haha. 

What’s your ideal day off? 

My ideal day off is a day spent with my family, friends or boyfriend getting up to cute shenanigans around the city. My ideal day off includes little to no phone time, being fully immersed int the moment and being in a constant state of flow until the day is over 🙂

What do you do for self-care? 

Skip workouts, indulge mindfully and stay in. I actually really, truly believe that my best self-care is to say no to things and prioritize how my mind and body are feeling. Staying in allows me to do me in the most comfortable way possible: full at-home facial, a movie and cuddles. In a time of high stress and anxiety, partying or going out is never the answer. 

What was the last show or movie you watched that you loved? 

Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 remake of Romeo and Juliet. Everything from young Leo to the crazy costumes… I’m obsessed.

If you could only eat at the same 3 restaurants for the rest of your life, what would they be? 

Cocoron, Raku, Cho Dang Gol. I quite literally can live off of only Japanese and Korean food!

Who are your style icons? 

Princess Diana and my mama. On Instagram, I’m currently loving @claartjerose, @emilisindlev, and @monikh. 

What has been the most significant piece of advice you’ve ever received? 

Prioritize yourself, your needs and your future. You should always be 100% comfortable on your own and any relationships or friendships on top of that should bring your life to 150%, 200%…

Where do you see yourself in five years? 

Running a full-fledged business and honestly just getting that bread. To be working hard at something (outside of content creation) that brings great joy and fulfillment.
