Ready to go ANYTIME!!

The other day when our accountant couple came to our house, the husband asked:  "Why do I looked so dressed-up even at home?!!" 


Yes, I always do, don't I!!? ^^ 


Especially we just got home by the time we had a meeting w/ them.  I ever said that I don't have time to change since I am always on-the-go and the time I do stay home is because I have to blog or the minute before the meal time. :P


The husband:"What about the greasy, oily smell gets on the clothes??" 


Again, he must not already read my blog. :P I said, "I'd buy new clothes anyway or put them into dry-clean....... Besides, I am not a 3-year-old and my cooking skill is not lousy after all!!" hahaha...




No particular plan for us last long weekend except for booking hotels, buying air tickets for our Italy and London trip during Thanksgiving in Nov. !! DH said that we have to travel "LIGHT" this time.  I replied: "Oh, sure, I KNOW, I KNOW, of course!!" heehee... I bet you are aware of that too!!! lol


Saturday
We went to the Shoup park in Los Altos first then Half Moon Bay in the late afternoon to avoid the crowd.

The bib necklace turns out quite versatile since it can really jazz up otherwise too plain top and add depth/interest to the outfit!

We are training Niel to ride w/ two wheels.... DH and I got to run w/ him to balance him w/ that training bar so we get to exercise w/ him.

Nop, I won't be wearing YSL heels in the park. I always have a spare flip flops in the car when high fashion look is not required. ^O^

Somehow we started our little shopping for the trip to Italy which I think I am getting too excited about. Hum... no shopping till we are actually THERE!! ^^

You are unstopable, always on the go!

Love your Givenchy hobo, looks great on you!

Let me know if you need any tips regarding London.

Hi, Mona:
Ah, Please do give us some pointers regarding places, museum, flea market..... to visit in London. We are only staying 3 days total there so I know I have to really visit landmarks there. ^^

So, lay them out for me, would you!! ^^

I love the glass pumpkins @ Stanford! I bought my 1st one 3 years ago but I could not find any that I like since then, maybe I will get lucky this year :)
litlstrawberry said…
ha, Michelle, same here,... I got mine (first) like 2 years ago and then the second one (in my hand).

The owner told me that he made that one himself and since he can't find "IT" in the system, he had to use other tag and $4 off there~~ He also gave Abby a clear glass (I am not so sure if it is even a pumpkin) for souvenir.

You know, yours must not have "signature" engraved on the pumpkin as MINE from the past year doesn't either. The owner (Bowes?) said that he'd love to sign/engraves that pumpkin for us if we took it BACK. ^^ I think I am going to do that~

I'm crazy for those leather things...vest and jacket! How stylish!

Michelle said…
Hi Rachel, that's good to know! The one you picked this year is very pretty, I should go check it out before all the pretty ones are gone :) Oh, I will go check if my old one has a signature. Thanks for the tip!

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…
