Stepping into 2011!!

I probably can start to lay out my new year's resolution!! ^O^

Each Christmas, no matter what, I'd like to buy a Christmas cake to celebrate w/ family or friends. It doesn't matter if the cake is Bûche de Noël or simply has "Merry Christmas" frosting to represent Christmas. 

This year, I bought a Princess cake which is a true Scandinavian cake w/ custard, raspberry filling. I never had Princess cake before and trust me, it is delicious!!!

Princess Cake (You can change the top Almond flavored skin to be PINK....a great birthday cake for little girls!!)

My dearest friend, Isabel, came visit her family here in bay area. Whilst shopping, she bought this "I-so-wanted-but-couldn't-find-it-anymore" 2010 engraved ornament for me!!!
 Ah, I am so touched that she even remembers it!!! ^O^

What else I have been busying for these holidays except for resting and partying at friend's place?!! 

Hand-made gift bag decorating!! I guess I was really bored at home and I found some scribble, scrabble to jazz up an otherwise too plain gift bag. ^O^ 

You must know OWL is my favorite animals of all kinds and I stick w/ friends well know about it and thus OWL becomes a starting point whenever they need to find a "personalized gift" for me. lol


There, a sweet owl night light gifted from Ann.

Sonia Rykiel knitting doll. 
 Such a signature rainbow pattern from Sonia Rykiel!

Chanel Shanghai collection 10' jacket

I have noticed that I barely wear my London Fog rain boots this year...even it pours these days!! I know, I kind of getting bored w/ the seem-to-be cool and functional rain boots look now. The rain boots look has been overwhelming since last year and wherever we were in Italy, everyone wears plastic rain-boots too!! 

Alternatives? Patent leather!! I dug out my old Christian Dior quilted ankle booties these days whilst there is rain.  I had DH compliments on them and he couldn't even remember that those are OLD 08' pair!!! You know, while I am up to wear the hottest trend to go out each time, DH appreciates most when the times I do wear the most comfortable and easy going look of outfit. ^O^ 

What can I say!!! Most men don't really appreciate HIGH FASHION as much as we women do!!

Max Co. halter denim dress, Falke socks, Dior booties and Chanel Jacket. 

When I am lazy, I put on one-piece dress for a easy but still pull-together look!

I have so many plans for next year 2011 and I am sure you are too!!
Write them down and have a good rest of your holidays!!
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…
