My Best Find of the year from Target!!

Here I come across this glass-like beads necklace when doing grocery shopping in Target.

You can explore their design at

I couldn't resist the one-of-a-kind design, not literally! But the pretty glass-like beads necklace which almost look like blowing bubbles is just so eye-catching. The designer is Erickson Beamon and they made limited edition of fair price w/ same intricate details of jewelry for Target brands this year only.

Here is the small introduction if you are not familiar w/ the designer.
New Yorkers Karen Erickson and Vicki Sarge launched Erickson Beamon in 1983. Their particular brand of timeless, old-world charm they call “new vintage” with bright baubles that could have been raided from Grandma’s jewelery box.

The shirt has two matching flowers attached!!


1. TOP:
  • R jean blouse striped shirt w/ zipper detail at sleeves' hem
  • Elisabeth & James black tuxedo vest w/ side pockets
2. Bottom: BJB cropped sheer leggings w/ side zipper
3. Bag: Chanel Rodeo Drive large tote in perforated
4. Shoes: Sergio Rossi Red patent heels w/ buckles

The bead necklace is just the right eye-catching element on my neck w/o distracting my whole look.

My little daughter is so sweet n' cute posing there w/ me!!

How about a striped blue hat......w/ the bubble necklace are two fun elements!!!

My poor little girl is having eczema again because of the carpet in the ferry.

Rachel - My husband is a fan of your ODJs too, and he has just declared that this one is his all time favorite. LOL. I guess it must be the leather legging look, which I can't pull off.

In all seriousness, what great find at Target! I really enjoy this look... such an attitude and flair.

Sorry to hear about Ilona's eczema. Both Max & Sophie has mild case of eczema too and I know it's a huge pain.

Hi, Julia:
yes...Ilona get her eyebrown from my DH, and eyes....from my mom (maybe), lips...I don't know. ..haha....yes, the gene is an interesting subject on human's body. haha.. Now she is having eczema and turn into single-fold eyelid...if I am more careful, she will be back to her double-folded eyelid the next day...hah.....Now I even dare not to take her to bookstore as they have carpet floor all over. She gets itchier whenever I took her to bookstore. *sigh*

Hi, Betsy: how is your in-laws? Are they still around? My in-laws says that they are visiting on Aug. but who knows when they will actually be here...hehe...(that's just my DH's side's habit......they tell you "when" but when they are is almost 2 mon. later.) So now I know, i always say "OK"....then just need to wait for they call again for picking them up in the airport. haha...

Oh..really? I am glad your DH likes my ODJ too. I know Irene's family all read my blog sometimes so I am her daughter's "idle". One time, we went out together, her daughter keeps imitating me put on sunglasses and take it Irene said that NO MORE GOING OUT W/ auntie Rachel....haha..She was kidding.

I think your Max and Sophie is just a little sensitive but not really having allergy toward the environment. Unfortunately, Ilona has serious allergy w/ dust mites.

Rachel -- My inlaws are still around. They actually live in Saratoga and that's why they offer tons of help with the kids for me. It's funny that you are Irene's daughter's idol. LOL. You're like a celebrity!

I'm excited for you that you will be traveling back to TPE soon. I'd love to go but I really want to go for more than 4 weeks so I might wait until Nov/Dec when the weather is cooler.

I hope Izy had a great time back in TPE. Haven't seen her around yet so she's probably still partyin' on.

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. …

4/12 (Sun.) Day 2 in Vegas w/ Girl Friends!

First of all, I have to thank Irene for coordinating every one's schedule to make this dream trip happen.

On Sunday, we planned to treat ourselves to a beauty spa in Mandalay Bay Hotel. Our appointment at The Bathhouse spa is at 1 PM. But since yesterday we stood up so late, we didn't wake up until 11 AM. However, neither Cathy nor I think we actually fell asleep as we were still so exhausted when waked up. And I am the one who slept the least but got up from the bed the first. I went to gamble alone after clubbing till 5 or 6 in the morning. Well, the time in Vegas is too luxury to stay in bed anyway. lol Pei probably slept not bad at all as I can hear she snores persistently throughout the night. haha............

We each had either Swedish or Deep-muscle massage. I recall my last massage is when I traveled back to Taiwan. My Dad took us family to Thailand and he called for two people to our room. In Thailand, most massagers' body frame are small-built but I am surpri…
