Friend At Work!!!

My girl friend, Cathy, works as a freelancer for La Prairie. Today is her work day at Neiman Marcus and I happen to have a chance to stop by since they have a ONE DAY DESIGNER sales too.

I adore Cathy's golden straw-like flat. The brand is Melissa which she bought at

She looks very lovely w/ yellow, mustard color cropped vest and ethical earrings, necklace along w/ that sparkle flat, everything is so perfectly put together.

Cathy at her facial room. I have an impulse to do facial right there when visiting her!!! haha....

I adore this flat but I know my feet won't look good in it!! *<*

She shows me couple La Prairie products they use for facial. I love La Prairie's products too. Everyone's skin condition is different but mine works great w/ La Prairie's products. I tried couple luxury items and feel instantly pampered by those.

Their popular products are Anti-aging stress cream.
This is day cream w/ SPF 30 which is sufficient sunblock for most of us
active ladies under the sun!!!

I love the big tube body sunblock which feels non-greasy at all and w/ a little tinted sheer cream. I am going to switch to La Prairie.

As for this small jar, it is a more concentrated anti-aging stress serum which costs about $600!!!


  • Diesel jeans jumper w/ cropped bottom
  • Billa Bong fringe vest in slate
2. Shoes: Diesel Gladiator heels
3. Accessory:
  • Puma cap
  • Max&Co. ruched belt
  • Chanel pea sized resin earrings
4. Bag: Balenciaga Violet part-time bag

I am feeling strong w/ my arms lately.....thanks to Yoga & Pilate.

Cathy and I have the same fringe vest. It would be a fun element in every wardrobe.

I feel so macho ~~~

I have never even thought of using La Prairie until late last year when I noticed some faint lines around my eyes! But I was blown away by their prices. Maybe I should reconsider since both you and Julia have great skin! Skincare is the only thing DH encourages me to splurge on haha:)

I'm seeing some definition on your arms! Looks like all that yoga and pilates is paying off.

BTW, how big is the Balenciaga part time? I'm contemplating getting a bbag, but not quite sure about the sizing of the city vs part time.

Rachel - You are looking hot!!! Your arms definitely look toned.... Love your fringe vest, it adds depth to your outfit.

Hi, Julia: so far I only use their deep cleansing mask and caviar cream (something like that). I really like the sunblock I tried today and I think after I finished my Sheshido, I am going to get that big tube from La Prairie.

Well...I didn't get anything as I think I bought ENOUGH for this S/S. I better save for F/W. hah... I went only to do price adjust for James black tuxedo vest that Isabel told me that went on sale for 30% off too.

So, let me know if you reveal your loot and please post a link for me....I am hardly to keep up all the blogs I am reading these days.

Hi, Nancy: You should also try Sisley ..... well, at least ingredient is from herbs and great for your skin too. Then you def. should try some peeling or fading cream or anti-aging products (oh, this is precaution which doesn't mean you have wrinkles already.)

I am like work-out-holic...lately. If I plan to exercise that day then if I couldn't, I would be upset. =[=........

As for us taller girl, partime would be better than city as it is JUST A LITTLE LONGER in handles which allows you carry it under arms better. The City's strap keeps falling off my arm in my experience.

Hey, sis: did you plan to fulfill your TA hours to complete your pilate instructor? I am still working on my balance and I think I tend to laugh when I lose my balance..then I can never get the balance back...gotta change that attitude. ..... FOCUS....FOCUS.....

I took kids to Border's store this afternoon (evening) and read mag. about Pilate and Yoga. I learned a lot...I think I will do better this SUN. w/ power yoga. hehe.... I mean I won't laugh even I lose my balance. :P ...I found pretty/hot/sexy... yoga clothes too. haha...

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. …

This season, there is one more thing in my never-ending clothing wish list: A Cape!!!

I never really want ONE since it never occurs to me that it is a stylish staple in one's wardrobe. :P However, I know I am always enamored by its sophisticated look!! :) Maybe one day I will indulge myself w/ a classic piece like those on the mag.

Aren't those 3 capes classic n' gorgeous!!!!

I want to share a store coupon w/ you girls. This deal is better than its offered 15% off for joining in their email list. You just have to go to "store location" page and print out the coupon and use it in different stores if you have more than ONE item that you like!!! (Please don't tell SAs that …

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…
