Giorgio Armani Foundation.

My girl friends throw me a birthday party at xanh restaurant in Mt. View last Friday night. It was a last min. change of plan from going to SF city to celebrate on Sat. night originally. I guess I was aware of my acting class at SF city at 11 Am so I suddenly lost the interest of finding an outfit on Friday night. I don't quite satisfied what I had wore on Friday night but just think I can do better. :P

I am not sure if Yu feels the same thing since she didn't even have much make-ups on at that night. lol While Pei is looking pretty in her little dress I realized the pic. all came out funny since 3 of us had tremendous different looks w/ our make-ups. It is not that we don't look good, it is just seeing me did a perfect make-ups, Yu had her make-ups since that morning, and Pei's face is all red because of the cocktail she consumed when Yu and I arrived at the restaurant. hahahaha.....



So skip our pretty funny pic. here I'd love to share Giorgio Armani Foundation and Laura Mercier tinted moisture I used on that night. I love how perfect coverage the foundation gave me as well as the silkiness/lightness I blend it w/ Laura Mercier's moisture.

Giorgio Armani designer shaping cream foundation spf 20 $65


Laura Mercier

Tinted Moisturizer - Oil Free $42



I applied MAC eye shadow in pearl around the corner of my tear gland!




If I don't thin out the Giorgio foundation, the look will be too matte which I hated!!


Tuna.


Chicken.

Xhan restaurant serves really tasty Vietnamese food but I can't seem to remember the name of the dishes we ordered. Guess I drank too fast of my raspberry Ocho cocktail. :)

happy birthday Rachel!!! Wish you the best and stay young forever :).. You look beautiful with your hair down and your makeup. You eye lashes are so long. Did u curl it before you put on the mascara? I tried a lot of foundation but none of them look good on my skin. All of them look so dry on my skin. I heard about NARS sheer foundation works great on dry skin.. I might give it a try.

Hi, dos:

Thanks, girl. :)
Hum..you mean from my DH right....
I might do a little reveal ... in the very near future. It will be a surprise for all of my friends too. haha...

Oh, cocktail.... yup, hum...you know, I need to update myself whether it is good to drink red wine or not. These days the researches are really confusing.... :P

hey, lin:
How have you been?

Thanks, I better enjoy my 30s as much as I can then. haha....

Hi, Kristy:
Thank you. *A hug to you*

The eye lashes...hum... I always think if we want to apply mascara, curl lashes is the first step as most of us lashes are not upward. Oh, I will share this incredible lash growing product in the future. It is not Lateess (not sure the spelling) so you don't need the prescription at all.

As for the foundation, I think you can try "premier" first before you apply foundation. Laura Mercier has tinted premier too. If your skin is really dry, you can start using "serum" or find a good "toner" or "moisture" before it is too late.... It is worth to invest one product that your skin absolutely needed at current stage. *make a note*!!!!!!! hahaha....

Come in here for my lunch break from work.
Hi Rachel,
I love Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer-its awesome. I might give a try to the giorgio armani..looks really nice on you.

Kristy, if you have dry skin (my skin is dry too) buy the Laura Mercier tinted muisturizer but no the oild free instead get this http://www.lauramercier.com/products/flawless_face/products/tinted_moisturizer/tinted_moisturizer/
Is the same product but this one is more hydrating than the other one that is oil free. I do use it and I love it. I also apply before the foundation Primer - Hydrating.

Hope this helps :)

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…
