Odds n' Ends..... for Travel!

Pic. source, Nylon.

Thanks to Cathy who always gives us girls lots of cosmetic samples!! :) I hate to refill those travel size bottles and I constantly forget to do so.  Now w/ sample packets, I can travel light w/ less bottles, jars and tubes to everywhere and regardless how many days I stay. ^O^ 

I brought total 4 pairs of shoes for all kinds of purposes.

 A pair of Sandals for walking along the beach, Nike for exercises. (Even I don't jog at all, everyone owns a pair of sneakers...haha....)  
My new YSL iridescent taupe/brown tribute platforms for looking tall and sexy! Then Missoni platform espadrille allows me walking freely all around in nirvana -- Maui!! :)

Oh, those beads, and sea shells necklaces are complimentary souvenirs from hotels. As you know, there are 5 of us traveling and I figure 10 necklaces are just too many..... I had to left some. 

I wish I bought Maui's gold pineapples back. They are just too sweet and you can even eat the core w/o worrying the hard fiber hurting your stomach!! ^O^

This is my outfit for the first day flying to Maui. I know, you might wonder....what the he**, heel??!!! hah......

Vince black top, Zara cropped pants, crochet bag, some scarf, YSL tribute platform.

Another outfit ... Gucci top, floral shirt, theory shrug, Missoni espadrille, crochet bag.

I probably will wear the second outfit sometime this week since it is getting very warm now!!!

This was yesterday!!
Do you remember that I said buying full priced heels these days is stupid??!!! 
Yes, I am the one who is the idiot... not only did i buy it w/ full price, I didn't even get double or triple points! .... a simply vain!! 

Well, I guess I am trying to justify that by wearing them everyday. :P 

One of the things I am obsessed w/ is soap!! I even take soaps w/ me when I travel. Whether it'd be a facial soap bar or a bath bar, I have to have either kind. I collect a motley group of soaps for their packages and scents. :P Aren't they just adorable!!!
Those pretty whimsical print triple-milled Tokyo soap bars make me feel extremely luxurious just by looking at them. 

A soap bar by the tub is just so romantic...... for me, the shower gel is so uncool. :P
Those are also triple-milled soap from Scotland. 

PS. Triple milled soaps, or French milled soaps, are made of a typical combination of a fatty acid (oil or fat) in reaction with lye (sodium hydrochloride). After the soap is made, it is dried into crystals, then rolled at least three times between large stainless steel rollers until a paste is formed. The paste is then pressed into soap molds, and triple milled soap is created.
The triple milling process allows for soap that is completely uniform and smooth, without impurities, and is longer lasting than other types of soap. (opposite to hand-made soap)...quoted from

I highly recommend this Cor Silver facial soap. 
As I also use it w/ my Clarisonic facial brush for extra cleaning.

My ODJ. 

Gucci cami, Elisabeth n' James white blazer w/ ruched sleeves, Max Mara weekend boot-cut pants (up-folded), two tones belt, YSL tribute platform, Flying lizard necklace, Chanel black mini flap. 

The summer is around the corner!! ^O^

I was looking for a striped skirt, or dress and found a good looking one... $145 from Ted Baker. Love that feminine big shoulder. 

Where is your next journey? I am planing mine. ~~ ^O^

Have a good Monday......get a hearty/healthier snacks throughout the day and eat less in the evening!! xoxo Rachel

So you use Clarisonic for your face? do you recommend it? i am thinking about getting it since sephora has 15% off now.

Very cute, as always. Sounds like you are having a great time! And remember, it's cost per wear what really matters. ;)
litlstrawberry said…
try this website...
They have 20% off and I got mine there.

I think the FB update my blog quite delayed!!!

yes, I think that brush is doing a great job and i am kinda addicted to it the first couple months... for everyday!! Now I'd sometimes like to use my hands and that Cor soap bar sometimes w/o brush.

Thanks, Janet.
I know, those soaps smell heavenly too.
litlstrawberry said…
Thanks, ballet report. Love your articles!!

Ah, Abigail, you just made my day. I definitely would work them into my everyday wardrobe. I wear my YSL heels today...again... hope you girls are not sick of seeing me wearing them already!! :P

OMG. I've been putting off a visit to Ted Baker for the last few weeks b/c I just can't seem to get enough time for myself to head over to Santana... but now that I see that cute, cute, cute shirt, I may just have to. How come I didn't see that online when I was browsing thru these past couple of days?!

Anyhoo, no hurry on the Maui book, but a get together is long overdue.

hha.. Betsy:
yes, I think TB. does have some cute stuff...except for the price. I think they are like higher quality brand name of our BR or J crew in England.
Santo likes one of their jacket and hopefully he can score one on sale.

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…
