Welcome back! I'm glad that you and the family enjoyed your trip! I'm having a chuckle with Purse Addict's comment cuz it *is* very rare to see you in sneakers. :D

hey, Betsy:
How are you?
I have to thank you million times for such a great advice on this trip.

We should go out a lunch sometime...BY THE END OF THIS YEAR..yes, I make it less stressful for us since it is just so hard to schedule a DATE w/ friends these days!!!...hah... (how about lunch at that Brazilian style BBQ in Palo Alto?)

hee.... yes, I know, I normally don't wear sneakers OUTSIDE the GYM, let alone walking on the STREET!! Well, Converse is different story, it is a kick-back style in trend!! :)

Oh, I want to give you back the book too!!!
Welcome back home, Rachel!!! The whale watching sounds really cool, it looks like the trip was such a cool expirience in general and teh weather seemed to be perfect - all those blue skies and waters, sunsets and the rainbow, wow! And I just ADORE your "bare" look - so chic!

love the pictures, reminded me of my Maui trip, so much fun! You look great looking so relaxed and just chillin' at the beach. Did you get a nice tan? :)
Mother of Style said…
OH,what a fun trip! I too had to rub my eyes to be sure I wasn't imagining tennis shoes :0 They look cute on you still. You can do no wrong!!

Hi Rachel, welcome back.
Seems you and your family had a great time in Maui (well, who wouldn't in such a beautiful place! Lol)
I think a vacation like that would make it difficult to back home to the "real life", but you're right: the memories that gives you, that will stay for you forever, definitely worth it.
And what a luck to be able to give your children this kind of experiences as well.

Great pics Rachel! I didn't know that we can still catch the whales in late April! May I know how long did you stay in Maui?

I usually go to Maui in October and stay at the Wailea area.

After looking at your pics, I miss Maui now!

Hi, Michelle: thanks.
I think the whale season is from Nov. to May..(we are lucky to catch the last couple whale mom and baby I think...haha...)

Oh, we only stay there for 5 days and realized that if we want to visit Big Island next time, we'd stay longer in Hawaii. :) Next time, I am going to visit Highway Hana and see some panoramic waterfalls for sure. ^O^

It is indeed a great getaway during winter time.

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 …

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…
