Not Girls Day Out....Funny!!

Friends say that we had a quiet Christmas and New Year. 

Yes, we do. I am still manage to gather my energy back after our Europe trip, and girls' Vegas trip! Besides, kids' school starts on Monday and I don't want to risk the chance for them being tardy for school. Hanging out w/ couple friends is so much fun regardless if we had a big party or not!!

No party at home doesn't mean there is no party at all. Irene held both of her sons' birthday party together on the first day of 2011!!! For a good luck!!?? ^O^

I know, this post is supposed to be about kids' birthday party but you know, this is also a fashion blog that how can I not to take the chance to snap pictures of my friends!!! lol.


Dialogue between me and Melody

Melody: No, Rachel, it is not fair that you only post your pretty pictures while we look so dumb there. How come I don't look "skinny" in the first picture!!

Rachel: &^%%$#@@..... Let's take another one then!

Rachel: See, what you accuse me of is not true. I always snap lots and lots of pictures for you girls but somehow you always give me long faces which I don't know why!!
And you know, for being a keen fashionista, I have a blog that I devoted to so I had to post pictures no matter what! Besides, I do want everyone to look into their best on my blog!! ^^

Rachel: Don't you know that you are supposed to tuck your chin in in front of the camera.

Happy new year! Those cakes look amazing. My friend Michelle's sons are Ethan and Evan too, I think both names are the most popular these years....

Happy New Year, girls!!!

Hey, Isabel, I guess they want both kids' name start w/ "E" then.... when "Ethan" takes the 1st place, there is not much boy's name left to be choose from. ^O^ hah... interesting... so I think they really need a "middle" name to be distinguishable!!

How is your new year so far!!?
Maggie said…
Hi Rachel! This is Maggie, remember me? I was there at the party too even though we didn't talk much...I have followed your blog for a while and always adore your sense of fashion and life. Great blog! Maybe hang out sometimes? Happy New Year!
litlstrawberry said…
hey, Maggie:
So YOU are the magic hand for those birthday cakes...haha... of course, I remember you, how couldn't I!!^^

Those cakes are a-m-a-z-i-n-g!! I love the brownie...and you know what, we didn't even get to taste a piece of that planet Earth cake. :( So is it chocolate/brownie cake inside as well?

Thank you for stopping by and yes, we should hand out sometime and we can grab sushi altogether like Sue suggested..

I am going to find you on FB then! ^^
See you!
Maggie said…
Hey Rachel! I am not the person who made the cake... :( I am Alice's sister-in-law. Sorry for the misunderstanding. We went to Lake Tahoe together last year but I am not sure you still remember me... Irene can help if you need to know me more. Anyway, it's always fun to follow your blog.
litlstrawberry said…
hahaha, Ah, Maggie, so you are the other Maggie. haha... Now I remembered, we met again in Vegas. So, how is your trip there? ^^
Oh, do you guys go to Lake Tahoe next week too? We are going on Tue. evening as Irene. Hopefully all of our kids would enjoy the kids' camp w/o balling out. ... I am talking about Ilona, my youngest one!! ^^

Is there anything you want from Chanel this year?hah.

Oh, we should go out and grab sushi altogether then!!

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. …

Kate Spade Store Coupon 20% OFF, DIY of Marni Runway Look!!

I really need to organize my blogs into tags/categories so it will be easier for you girls to navigate on. But right now, thanks to Google for its incredible searching mechanism that I hope you still can find something useful here other than seeing me fancy and vain in the pic. haha....!!!! lol.

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…
