The taste is not bad at all and all at a very reasonable price. 


This little Alley lies small shops (vintage store) and some nice restaurants.

Anthropologies here in London has quite different merchandise from SF.

I also found this very cool store, AllSaints SpitalFields!!! 
There window displays all kinds of sewing machines that I thought it is a fabric or cloth shop from afar!!

Boots are all so urban slouchy look. 


Nice pieces of baubles.

It is only 7 AM and we walked to find a diner for our English breakfast.

Preen leather/polyester pants w/ studs ....(PS, my rear is really chill because it is only polyester at back..^O^)

4. Shoes:

Kids are all so nosy....they are probably suffered from being bored (waiting for the gallery to be open) and jet do I. 

I really adore the tail of this AllSaints leather jacket.... so much of "Shakespeare looking"!

It is not even 9 AM when we arrived British Museum that I decided to read Fairy story to Niel and Abby whilst we wait for the gallery open at 10 AM. 

You know, we only in the British Museum for hour and half, kids became tired and bored that we decided to ditch out touring! :P

This is then what happened around 2:30 PM that everyone seems to be defeated by jet lag. We went home for an hour nap after lunch.~~ I said, only an hour!! ^O^

Outside the natural history museum. 
We almost walked every corner in London... ^O^

They even have Melissa shoes for children available. 

There are so many different styles of rain boots, flat tall boots and as well as Melissa's rubber shoes. 

We all ride on Ferry Wheel in the evening.... DH and I were so sleepy that we hoped that we can sleep right inside the capsule!! :P


London's night view is amazing!!

Ah... I think I am too tired now...that I should go to bed cause' we'd catch plane for Italy. 
See you.

xoxo Rachel

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…
