Adventure through the Kitchen!

This Kelly Moore's "Peeled Pistachio" color totally upset my appetite... with the first attempt.

Finally the color I want for the kitchen soffit.

Yes, I definitely agree with my contractor that green is the toughest color to paint for any home. So I start looking for inspiration from our counter top, kitchen appliances, home decoration,.. and then I found HONEY. Oh, no, I mean, the sticker on top of the honey jar which is exactly the green color I dreamed for my kitchen. I think we nailed it!! What do you say?!!

We had to custom mix this green color from Home depo. The color come out very close but it gets darken a little after we painted it on the soffit.

Another inspiration of green color.

As oppose to kitchen's big white cabinet, the family room has one wall of strong "Dior Gray" paint from Benjamin Moore. 

My little blog reader, Anna, who joked that since this "Dior Gray" sounded so couture, why not name the neon green "Balenciaga Green"!! {Of course, why not?!} Then I might as well name the kitchen soffit green, "Proenza Schouler Sage Green", how does that sound to you? 



Be adventurous!!

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. …

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…
