Self-induldging!!!

Yu n' my family spent a great n' unforgettable Valentine's Day together in Reno last week. 

We skied everyday like there is no more snow tomorrow....ha...(I assume we two families are very competitive w/ each other too..hahahah...) The pros are kids had fun, me n' Yu both had 2 snowboarding lessons n' a big feast of surprising Valentine's dinner. 


Why I said it was a surprised Valentines' dinner? 

No, our DHs didn't plan anything since our trip is a last minute plan. 

We are lucky enough to find a decent restaurant "The Grill" in Reno n' the owner/manager is friendly enough to let us whole group stinky n' ugly enough outfits to dine there. lol 


We still had our ski suits on n' all the customers looked at us all wired when walked in w/ bunch of kids that night!! ^O^
The kids??!!
Happily sat at another table!!!

So what do I get for Valentine's? 

A family trip to Lake Tahoe. 
A Catier Ring. 
A Ena 5 Coffee machine. (finally... and I drink my coffee at home everyday ever since ... until I notice my throat starts to show the syndrome of being short of iron these days.....haha..... )
A Classic ~~
I am out of breath. 

My ODJ. 





1. Top:
J Crew shirt
Max & Co. taupe/brown leather bomber jacket
2. Bottom: IRO high waist tapered pants
3. Accessory: 
Balenciaga sunglasses 08' 
Hermes Gris T. Birkin 35cm
AJ scarf
4. Shoes: MaxMara black clog

I was cooking dinner while DH took these photos. 

I never change to casual outfit even when I am home. 

Why?

Too lazy, no time to change cause
 there are 5 mouths to feed, n' didn't seem the necessary, ...

Afraid of cooking oil splashing on clothes?
Why not? So I can get new clothes!! :P


Looking good every minute in my life for myself n' for my family!!

Hehe I like it how your kids peak in some of your photos!! :) Glad you chose the bag in beige, LOVE it! And yay for the coffee machine, the ring and the family trip, I remember you posting your wish list :) It's also cool that kids got to sit at another table, bet they felt like grown ups haha

P.S. I don't do yoga. I tried for a few months but realized it wasn't really my type of thing. Maybe I'm just not too patient to hold the poses for too long lol I prefer something more dinamyc and that involves more of the vigorous movement!

Mascarpone is not sweet on its own, yes! That's why last time I said that in order to make this mascarpone cream you need to be adding something to it...

Here, a few recipes for you:

P.S. Frgot to comment about the Russian tea cakes... It's funny but I don't think we really have something like that here!! :)
Oh R! Glad you enjoyed Reno (forgive my innocence coz I don't know where it is but I'm sure it's a great place. :D)!

And I'm so glad you got the beige clair classic medium with gold hw!!! We are now cousins (I have the jumbo size and it's one of my fave classics)!! Yay! You will find it so versatile and elegant. Can't wait to see you rock this bag!

Cheers,
Mia

P.S. Oh, if you see Yu, please help me ask about her Lindy size and color..thanks so much again!! Really appreciate it! :D
Oh.....BTW, is your beige caviar the 09A/09C beige clair or the new 10C beige? My friend wants to see the new beige so if yours is the new beige color, then I can point her to your picture. :D The new beige color code is 21011, the beige clair from 09A/09C is 21209. Please see if you can help check the color code of your bag so I can tell my friend. :D Thanks again R!!

Cheers,
Mia

yes, LS, that's my new Max & Co. leather jacket. The color is unique n' they did special treatment to the leather..it looks very similar to the effect on my Alexander Wang Coco Duffel bag..... patches n' like croc embossed texture.

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!!

I really need to organize my blogs into tags/categories so it will be easier for you girls to navigate on. But right now, thanks to Google for its incredible searching mechanism that I hope you still can find something useful here other than seeing me fancy and vain in the pic. haha....!!!! lol.

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…
