Still proper, Fendi leather skirt!

I worn my Fendi skirt to the city for dinner last night. San Francisco's weather is perfect for wearing leather anything.... It is almost windy all the time around the bay and I find leather is the best shield for blocking out brutal wind in the city. I even like it better than wearing a trench coat.  

Over the years I acquired enough leather jackets, leather mini skirt and leather pants but I'm lacking long leather skirt in my wardrobe. Not only is the fact that a good looking long leather skirt is hard to come by but also a thought that it might be cumbersome to move around in it. Hum..... but you know what, all these uncertainty is redundant the moment I see Fendi 2015 fall/winter runway leather long skirt with pony hair. Ha~ the right moment comes with the right item, I am grabbing it. If you know which one I am talking about, you know I got myself a double-shield wind-proof skirt. lol.... As you can see I'm very into Fendi especially Monster collection at this moment.  What a fashion statement they are!!

I dug out my Marni coat and since it is short sleeves that I pair it with my Bottega's gloves to keep me warm.  Be fashionable, stylish, edgy, elegant, classic.... warm and cozy... they often conflict with each other but also compliment each other. LOL...


Enjoy your rest of Sunday evening.

Needless to say, this Karla Spetic Rose print one piece sheer dress certainly made my day brighter.



The best view and weather in San Francisco. 


Happy end of summer!

Healthy Skin, the first impression of how you show off your beauty statement.

Halloween is approaching fast which means our season is changing and it also means time to feed your skin and keep up its moisture. Drinking lots of water keeps the skin hydrated and most important thing is that water is a natural detoxing agent, it helps you cleanse and purify your body while you sweat it out. Besides water, make sure you apply (and reapply) your sunblocks all year round especially in the winter. Sleep well, eat whole and raw food such as cucumber, blueberry, parsley, kale, banana....etc. are definitely a year round feed-your-body-well ritual for all of us. Last month, I received Tatcha's new product: Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen. I am telling you, the moment I received their heart-warming box, not only it reminds me to continue pampering my skin but also demonstrate how serious Tatcha treats their product and their customers. I patiently give it a try for a month and finally I can share this NOT-a-SECRET and wonderful beauty product with you. 

 How refreshing to see this bamboo box filled with all the goodies inside.

 Ooh la la~ 

My skin are thin and slightly sensitive so I always on the lookout for a nature but effective sunblocks. Tatcha's Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen offers SPF35 broad spectrum protection which contains Japanese Wild Rose ( I am a sucker for all rose products from rose water to rose blended perfume candles..), Licorice, Silk and Loquat Leaf extracts. This sunblocks smells heavenly and since I am not a no-scent-means-nature-ingredient person, this slightly scented sunblock wins my heart already. Reading their booklet about this product, it claims to reduce the appearance of pores and smoothes skin for a glowing complexion. I would say I am satisfied with the silky smooth touch after applying the sunblock but since I don't have large pores to begin with, I can't really tell how much my pores are diminished afterward. ha~ thanks to a healthy life style that I drink in moderation and keep up 7 hours sleep while I can. One more thing I like about Tatcha' Silken sunscreen is lightweight that I still can apply my B.B. Cream or foundation on top of it without caking up my face. I am not a big fan of all the heavily contouring which swamped over the Internet. Moderation is everything. 

Last but not the least, Silken has additional antioxidant ingredient so while you bask in the sun you know you are in good hand with additional pamper from HADASEI-3 bioactive complex in Tatcha's sunscreen.  Love it ~ 


No sticky sunblocks but all the incredible feelings after you apply it on your skin. 

Me and my gf both love Tatcha product 

Give it a try and you will appreciate another awesome product in your skin regime.

Anything works : 70s, 80s, even 90s looks as long as you pull it off with your confidence.

Friend and I were talking about how the fashion trends are so mixed these days. It pretty much blends in all the looks in different eras and it doesn't seem we have a boundary at all. Oh yeah, no boundary!! Personally, I don't think I have figured out all the different styles in different eras unless it is around my mom's generation or before mine and current.  Occasionally, I recognize those trends from movies and sometimes I'd play dress-up with my girl friends in our outing. It is a way of living and a way of enjoy our life. Over the years I realized two things that the first one is my mom has exquisite taste in styles and that's how I got a sense of fashion.  And the second is since she is a really picky eater that made me a total opposite of her: a non-picky eater and a not bad cook. Well, unless I confined myself NOT to touch certain food out of health concern I pretty much eat everything that is edible. ha~  

We, are all one of our kind, and we are uniquely evolved from our life experience. One thing I have learned from my little life is that I have a lot of patience in my 30s. I rushed my life during my school year and after I studied abroad in USA. But now I am settled here and I have all the time to ENJOY, so NO MORE rushing. I know I will have a lot to share when I am in my 40s and I will be even more calm and patient with everything. When you are a patient person, you actually can achieve a lot in your life. 

Let me tell you one thing: Be patient and love yourself a lot y'all!!

A paradise trip in Bali, Indonesia.

I have been neglected my blog for a while but definitely not neglect fashion trends nor heathy life style. As a matter of fact, if you browse my side bar on FB, you will see lots of updates and even my IG is full of updates too. Well, I know, that is not an excuse for not updating my blog here. 

I have traveled back to my hometown Taipei 3 times this year and I am surprised that I still enjoy flying so much after quitting a flight attendant 10 years ago.  I also went to Bali and stayed at Mulia, this world class resort, with my family and relatives. I had the best time, best water-rafting experience and took the best yoga pictures there.  So here it is slowly catching up as my hectic life with travel, house remodeling, shopping, yoga advance.....etc. I hope you continue be inspired and enjoy our life journey together.

I am not quite a sun-bathing enthusiast but oh well, I was there on vacation and I really don't think I should worry so much about getting tan. That's one of the purpose - get a healthy and glowy tan when travel after all. 

I really enjoyed the best temperature and the best water in Bali. 

 Private pool outside our room in Mulia. There are only 8 rooms have the access to this private pool and we family occupied 3 along with 2 occupied by others. Every morning we can just open the back door and jump right in the pool for a morning swim.

My next trip, Spain. 
stay tuned.

Playful and subtle outfit is always chic and in trend.

I have always loved camo. prints. I had an inspiration from my acting friend who is in her 50s and she wears the most fierce camo. print cargo pants ever. And ever since I am in love with the prints and deeply believe that camouflage print is suitable for every age. However, don't wear it head to toe, otherwise you will certainly look like a soldier in real life.    And that is NOT fashion and it is NOT fun at all. 

So what's the key to pull off a camouflage print piece?? Try a little feminine and a little tailored like my pencil skirt. The blush sleeveless trench also adds a softer touch to the whole look. What do you think? 

J crew camisole, came. print pencil skirt, Sophie Webster sandals, Sara Battaglia clutch, Lavish Alice sleeveless trench 

Don't you adore the angular bow look which tough up the otherwise too feminine clutch?
The camouflage skirt is feminine enough with the hard cased bow clutch, I think the balance played in this look is fun yet stylish without trying too hard. 

I really dig my middle parted hair-do. Maybe I can add a little more layers in the future. 

Happy Hump Day!

Mesmerizing tidies things after my Asia trip. Resting, recharge until I am ready for my next one in October.

I have been away from USA for more than 2 weeks.  After Taipei and Bali, I am finally HOME, San Francisco. 

 New acquisitions during my Asia trip: Fendi monster slip-ons and monster pouch. 

 My fancy oolong tea with tasteless gold flakes. 


Chicken soup before I passed out for 10 Hours in plane while flying back to San Francisco. 
The new Boeing-777 is uber comfortable and smartly configured with useful compartments. 

Paper Towns Mandarine translated version ( NOT so found of the translation and that tells me I should read its original version for any movie novels in the future.)
