Birthday gifts!! For Me and For My Girl Friend!!

It is hard!

It is sometimes became a headache to pick up a perfect gift for friends.

First thing is "what does s/he want?" Then, the budget, the style, the color,..... or maybe the budget goes first it will be much easier?!! I don't know. We are all moms, we constantly struggle between buying things for "practical" or for "looks". lol

I own my friend, Yu, a birthday gift. So today is the day that I thought I had to give Yu her B-day gift. As for the hand-made birthday card, I asked her for a rain check till this Christmas!! haha...... Birthday card + Christmas card!!!! My, did I say Christmas already!!!?

The gift I prepared turns out not that perfect after receiving it so I returned it. And that just throws me back to the same dilemma "what else she likes"???!! I walked in a store which we all shopped there before this morning, and just when I was stuck at whether a boyfriend cardigan or a pair of leggings meet Yu's taste/likes the best, I found a perfect pair of SHOES!!! I saw a customer pick them up in the store, and I also recall that Yu wants to check out those shoes just recently while they are available for a while already. :) The brand is MinneTonka made in Minnesota!!

Wouldn't you know it, I bought 2 of them!!! One for myself and the other one is for Yu. Yah!!! UGG never gets my attention, but this pair sure is a great substitution to warm up my feet in the winter. I hope she will like it too!!

w/ flash!!
Size 8 and 9. (We go up half size for thicker socks in the winter!)

w/o flash.

More true to the color: Dusty brown!!!!

I think my Pink pants goes w/ the brown boots.

Those are little accouterments I received from Yu, Pei and Cathy for my birthday gifts. The sexy knee high socks is from Yu who bought from Germany. I wore them the past couple days except the socks......the weather is not cold enough!! :)

There are pretty pattern on the socks.

Flying lizard design turquoise/golden disc necklace is from Cathy.

Great thing about this harem pants is its super long tapered legs which can be tucked underneath my ankle to elongate the look of my legs even more!! :)

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. …

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…
