As Usual!!

As usual, we always stop by Pottery Barn Kids when there is one in the mall!! Couple of my kids' rooms are almost like Pottery Barn Kids' model room already! Well, I love, we all love their fancy decoration, pretty bed and bedding all stuff and children enjoyed playing in their stores very much. ^^


As usual, I'd wear my dress as my TOP or blouse whenever I need a fresh look!

Top: Romeo and Julia Couture pink chiffon dress, French connection high waist pencil skirt, Valentino For GAP ruffle jacket (belt is taken from its cargo pants), ivory knitting gloves bought at Therapy, Chanel 10A maroon tote, Alexander Wang combat boots in black suede.

My hands......grrr... funny gestures... ^O^

As usual, I have to do my volunteer job every Monday at Niel's school. And another usual thing is every month I have to read a book n' think about an activity that the students in my son's class can participate while exercising what had been told in the book. I am not doing it alone, I am glad that I have a partner, another parent's help w/ this.
I enjoyed those monthly books very much and they are all very inspiring. Best of all, I can keep myself updated at what's happening at their generation and at school. 

This month's topic, "Say something" whenever there is a bully or a tease happening in your sight. Don't just stand there or be a bystander!....... BE A Up-stander!!!

Best Children book "Say  Something":
"If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping in a room with a mosquito"!!  

As usual, my good neighbor, Denise, brought over her home-made Christmas treats as well as store-bought goodies this evening.  Well, I am actually surprised for her kind gesture. Even though this is sort of a tradition in America,  who doesn't love a free treats especially those are costume made for us!


The last usual thing is doing my online shopping this morning!
I had my eyes on this runway pair of Oscar de la Renta's 24-karat gold-plated green glass and sapphire drop earrings since last Friday. The moment I found it is sold out on Net-a-porter that I know I had to track it down somewhere~~  

Normally, whenever SA says: " It is the LAST ONE, I won't take the bait". But if I see something I love has been "SOLD OUT", I'd lose my mind until I find it!! ^O^

I was thinking, I had fun w/ statement necklaces, what's next?!! 
A statement earrings! 
Let's see how it turns out on me~~ 

What's the most usual thing that you enjoy it very much other than shopping?
Have a good evening!
xoxo Rachel


Hey R, the earrings are not sold out on net-a-porter Europe/UK site....maybe only on US site. But it's a pair of clip earrings....might be painful. U ok with clip ons? Anyway, good luck with your search!

I volunteer as a librarian at Mason's school as's indeed a good way to be involved in all sorts of school activities.

Haha.....aside from shopping..i love watching the TV series. I'm now super hooked with GLEE. Gosh I love that tall hot quarterback FINN there! I always dream about him...hahahahahhaha! I guess the show reminds me of my highschool & college days where I'm in the drama club and choir. Love the stage!

Have a great week!

Well, the first test-drive of that clip earrings is not so bad but gotta wait till I am back from the trip to see how does it holding up..or me tolerant for hours of dining. haha..ha...

I saw glee on the airplane and like it a lot too. However, I still like Twilight better. ^^

Have a good day!

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!!!!

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…
