2010 Lake Tahoe -- Intended to be an Indian Boho Style!!!

Finally we are back from Lake Tahoe on Tue. 

Sorry that I couldn't update my blog sooner because of all the activities, snowboarding, and gambling!!! :P


Children and adults all had a great time and I can't wait to attend a snowboarding lesson next time. I have been doing snowboarding for 5 times only. Mostly I learned by myself or get tips from DH and also by observing others; therefore, I think a private snowboarding lesson would help a lot. I know, I must master it by now or NEVER!! :P 
Off we go!!




I know I don't look like I am dressing for going skiing!! :)



All kids are full of energy the first day!



Finally I bought myself the whole set of snowboarding gears, the right size of girls' snowboard, snow shoes and clippers!! yah~~

Hum...I figured, even most people would think it is more practical to RENT the equipment since they worn out in couple years, I still prefer to wear shoes w/ my own sweats inside!!!!! Besides, skill is one thing, the style is forever!! hhahha...~~ whatever I say, right?!!!



 I would never buy neon green heels but hey, they would be easier to be spotted if I ever fell off the cliff!!! hahaha~~~~~





I really like the middle graphic white board a lot . 
However, it is designed for MEN and I am not strong enough nor dare to maneuver one that's not made for women! :P





This is my Indian style headband (neck-warmer?) which is so much of my friend, Cathy's, style!! She loves Indian poncho coat, braided hair and etc........ :P 


Here I came to a stop w/ my snowboard!




 There I fell again!! OUCH!!!:P  (
That's my friend, Irene's DH, standing and laughing!!!! ) 


While we adults are having fun, kids are all sent to ski school!! We lie about Ilona's age to be 3 year-old which is the minimum age requirement for kids to be eligible to be in the camp!  But after an hour of her crying, we had to pick her up!! Oh, well, couple snack of Belgium waffle n' hot dog w/ her is not too bad at all!!! :P 




Look at that sneaky smile, we know that's her tricky by crying for not wanting to stay at kids' ski camp!!



Abigail!


The look like little astronauts in ski suits!!








Niel!



I like how they set up a tunnel for kids to bend over to be able to ski over!!!
That's Ethan.




Abigail went for a jump after class!!

Those kids classes are really pricey for $99/kid. I guess I should master snowboarding sooner to teach my children in order to save some $$$! :)

The day back to the fashion world!!

How do you not freeze with bare legs in the snow? Nonetheless, I'm glad you had fun, it looks like your kids had a lot of fun too.
I absolutely adore your Nicholas K leather jacket and M Missoni dress :)

Ha.... girls:

maybe I shouldn't confuse you girls w/ that bare leg pic.... I do wear a thin layer of cashmere sweater inside the M. Mission dress and we only stayed for 20 mins or so before we head back HOME. Besides, I sneak right back inside the car after couple shoots w/ kids and friends. :P

ha ha ha ~~

I have to agree with the others, your legs are exposed in snow! were you cold? but you look great though. love that leather jacket. i think we need to take a trip to tahoe too, my daughter has been asking when we can take her to see snow. glad to see your update, i miss it!
LOVE your tight high boots and this blazer in the first picture! You definitely go snowboarding in style even before you got the actual equipment hehe :) And btw, I actually like the neon boots and clips on that board!!!

Rach, a skirt in the snow?!! you are brave! i love snowboarding too, too bad we dont live close =(
Looks like you had fun! I've never tried snowboarding and my skiing is disasterous! Love your outfit though, especially the boots, the Missoni and of course the A. Wang bag!

Rachel - one of the greatest things abt you is your ability to be so active and yet so fashionable all at the same time!!!!!!!!!! So many other women settle for sweats or something "comfy" but you're always here to remind us all that being fashionable doesn't have to get in the way of anything :)

haha.. girls: Thanks for paying so detail attention on my bare legs...good thing is I didn't catch cold except for I do fell pretty hard ... I bumped my head and going to get a CAT tomorrow. Just so I can make sure my headache these days is nothing serious!!! :0 See, this is what I said, I have to mater snowboarding right now or never, it will be too old to learn new tricks!!! hehehe...

oh, yah, too bad, chocolaine, I wish someone who loves snowboarding would go w/ me so I can get some tips ... FROM YOU TOO. well... will you consider move to SF ? hehe...


hee, Jenny: thank you. Yes, I know most women do get lazy year after year after becoming a mom. So, yes, I hope my blog here at least serve a little purpose of being fun, inspiration and a little reminder for moms who should pamper themselves nonetheless!!! :)

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. …

Kate Spade Store Coupon 20% OFF, DIY of Marni Runway Look!!

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 …

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…
