After 15 hours straight no-sleep, still shopping in Amsterdam!!

Photos all look like postcards in Europe.  Don't you think so?

12/25 11 A.M. Arrival in Amsterdam

 Soap souvenior for my dearest friend, Cathy. 

Love the crisp air in the morning when it is actually not cold at all. 

There aren't many cute shops open on Christmas Day in Amsterdam but this is one still open and called "Leafde"!!

Everything displayed and sold in this store is so soothing that you almost want to change your life style. You want to burn bee wax candles, replace your plastic/metal containers to felt wool ones instead and basically, you would want to try to live with a sustainable life. lol.

{Jet lag.... so sleepy,.... no... I can't go to sleep yet..... lol..}

Can you tell I didn't sleep for 20 hours straight already?!!!

After a walk of 1 hour, we are so ready for our first meal/lunch in Amsterdam... "Nooch" an Asia Fusion restaurant. lol... What can I say, travel with kids, the best bet to make sure they eat and replenished with enough nutrition before big adventure is let them eat something familiar and something from home. ^O^

 {Ilona is always grumpy...}

Inside setting of Nooch... cozy and exotic... lol...

My super "wake-up" drink anytime!!

Another life style shops "Fair Fair".

 Ah, bed? no, Sofa, whatever, .....again... jet lag... no, I can't sleep just yet!! @_@

You would want to go up and down in this 2 levels shops to make sure that you didn't miss anything cute. 

We wouldn't say we have been to Amsterdam if we didn't pay a visit on Wallen (Red light district). 



A good eats located in Wallen. 




Bombino Coffee... love the sweet taste from caramel. 

Blood street... 




...... jeg lag... but I can't sleep... now out and hunt for fun!! 

See you in Barcelona
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. …

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 …

4/12 (Sun.) Day 2 in Vegas w/ Girl Friends!

First of all, I have to thank Irene for coordinating every one's schedule to make this dream trip happen.

On Sunday, we planned to treat ourselves to a beauty spa in Mandalay Bay Hotel. Our appointment at The Bathhouse spa is at 1 PM. But since yesterday we stood up so late, we didn't wake up until 11 AM. However, neither Cathy nor I think we actually fell asleep as we were still so exhausted when waked up. And I am the one who slept the least but got up from the bed the first. I went to gamble alone after clubbing till 5 or 6 in the morning. Well, the time in Vegas is too luxury to stay in bed anyway. lol Pei probably slept not bad at all as I can hear she snores persistently throughout the night. haha............

We each had either Swedish or Deep-muscle massage. I recall my last massage is when I traveled back to Taiwan. My Dad took us family to Thailand and he called for two people to our room. In Thailand, most massagers' body frame are small-built but I am surpri…
