Skin Detox - A Perricone $150 or less Giveaway!

Didn't I just tell you that we are going to have another fun, and exciting GIVEAWAY!!  Well, here it is!!
(The GIVEAWAY is sponsored by the 3rd party and I am not affiliate with this GETSUPER company.) 

Not only did I personally love to read about the newest skin care research/product that are available in the market but also I update myself constantly of the anti-aging facts with my dermatologist. Ever since I did Sclerotherapy (a procedure used to treat blood vessels or blood vessel malformations) under her supervision on my left thigh, I worship my dermatologist very much for her professionalism. ^O^

Now, I consult her very often about the ideas of all the anti-aging theories and also clear the cloud of misconception about collagen supplement.  

Here I found two products from GETSUPER which draw my attention. I am doing Yoga religiously as you already know.  One of my yoga instructors says that "twisting" is great for our body as it also detox our stress and waste from our body but he didn't mention about how to detox our face and make it glow.  ^^

Watercress is an interesting leaf vegetables that you normally would want to eat them tossed with other vegetable as salad or inside sandwiches. But now you know how great it works as an stimulant, try this watercress enriched, amazing, and soothing DETOX ELIXIR !!! ^O^

Do you know that I quench frequently coconut water during my session of doing Zumba? 


Cause' I don't like plain water nor sugar-loaded energy drinks. Besides, the potassium content in Coconut Water is close to twice the amount in a banana. ( I bet you don't know this before!)  A healthy balance of electrolytes is so important for the optimal health of our muscular, cardiovascular, nervous and immune systems, so drink it up!!

What about use Coconut Oil as an anti-aging skin aid?
Coconut Water contains these cytokinins and lauric acid which can minimize the aging of skin cells, balance PH levels, and keep the connective tissues strong and hydrated!! I found that not only can you apply this LUSH LIPS balm on your lips, but also great to apply it on affected skin areas such as acne, wrinkles, stretch marks.... etc. 

Now, do you want to try those make-you-look-good products from Dr. Perricone? 
Here is Entry Rule: (U.S. and Canada only)

1. Please comment in this post and share which Perricone product valued at $150 or less that you'd love to try and why!!

2. Add yourself as a follower on my blog.

3. It's just that easy, the winner will be randomly drawn. 

(Ends at 4/10, 12 a.m. pacific time)

Have fun and good luck!

Trend Irrelevant, Fashion Connected!!

My friend, Elfi Altendofer, always makes gorgeous and bold necklaces! I couldn't wait to get my hands on her newest pieces!! ^^  I had her custom-make two necklaces for one with pink beads on safety pin and the other with yellow spacers. The outcome of the looks are intricate and one-of-a-kind luxury!

I always have my own interpretation of edge, fun and urban twisted look, as you know!

  Yu gave me the white butterfly patterned lace legging which is too tight to fit me but my solutions is have the legs cut-off and trim the edges as they now are my arm/leg warmers and thus the "bottom" becomes my "SHORTS" for this look!!!

Yellow spacers and pink,clear,yellow, blue beads, translucent glass-tube on big safety-pins spike necklace. 


Urban look 1.

1. Top: 
Max Mara asymmetrical tee

2. Bottom: 
sheered black legging with self-stitched emboridery 
lace shorts (cut off from leggings)
3. Accessory:
Elfi Altendorfer yellow spacer safety pin spiky necklace
Elfi Altendorfer pink beads small safety pin bracelet 
Free people metallic peach leg warmers
Chanel 08' large Rodeo drive tote (still my love~~)

4. Shoes:
Alexander Wang Abbey Gray sandal heels

A statement piece that differentiates you from anyone else!

Urban Look 2.

1. Top:
Theory black tee
Helmut Lang asymmetrical leather/jersey jacket 
2. Bottom:
Hudson black low-rise skinny jeans

3. Accessory:
Elfi Altendorfer fuchsia safety pin spike necklace
Hermes Croc belt with green/taupe buckle
Chanel 08' large Rodeo Drive tote

4. Shoes:
Alain wrap boots



Big and small safety pins intervening between each other!!

I love the strong contrast of Fuschia necklace and blue coated with Deborah Lippomann baby blue glitter nail polish. 


What's your fave. statement pieces?
Have fun with it.

Helmut Lang leather jacket

Alain wrap up boots 

Bottega Veneta cashmere fingerless fishnet gloves
Mink/reclaimed silver, sapphire earring (single only)

Sheer look is fun and you don't have to expose your legs underneath... Bandeaux trend is just cute as well that you don't need to look at it so seriously or act panic when it was worn inside out!! ^O^

Have fun with these spring trends, you have lots of options!!

Layer the Brightest Colors From your Wardrobe!!

You don't have to worry about harmony or not, basically, bright color blocks would work great in any form. The key is to keep them segmented!! Torso, upper arm, lower body-hip, neck,........wear your most luxe. colors like the way of doing a body anatomy!! 

Sound wired?! It really works!! ^O^

pull down sweater...


Or fold up sweater to reveal more skirt... different silhouette would make your bright color look even more fun!!

Vintage teal leather/suede dress, Max & Co. lime green sweater with zipper, London Fog black patent leather boots

The thoughts of death toll would increase up to 10,000 in Japan filled me with dread. We family had contributed small donation toward Japanese people and I am thinking of donating more to help. At least I can do!!

Meanwhile, just read about the news of food contamination by radiative, Milk and Spinach probably should be eliminated from consuming recently. ... I know, it probably is irrelevant since we are buying spinach and Milk from local...but just the thoughts... again,  scares me!

Give your help to Japan!!

Classic, Timeless, Always Chanel!!

Yu and I are gasping Chanel beauties yesterday whole afternoon. We are lucky that we both get the deal of 20% off everything during Bloomingdale's new account event. Who could resist a fabulous deal like that!!?

A reward to moms, ourselves!! ^O^

10A Dark Red (Dark Red/Orange) caviar reisse 226 with distressed SILVER HW and 11P Tomatoes matte reissue 226 with GOLD HW. 

Left (right red) is 11P Chanel matte (tomatoes) red reissue 226 which possibly will be gifted to my mom and (right) Yu's most soft and buttery purple/blue lambskin reissue ever~ I almost see myself trying to fawn over our new babies, pat the leather, and ...... haha~~ silly.

Thursday is my busiest day for I have a lot of duties and I have to make the best use of segmentary time throughout the day. After sacred morning Power Yoga work-out, I almost always out and about on the road after 2:30 PM, driving kids to different classes (imagining 3 kids have their own extra-curricular activities), going back home to clean the house, cook and prep the dishes for dinner, take photos for my blogs if I had an idea and rush out to pick kids again. However, the good thing is all those activities are within 10 to15 mins. in distance that allows me doing them all by my own. (maybe a nanny would be very helpful but people like me, tend to push the boundary and act lazy and tardy while I know I can stretch the time and abuse the purpose of having back-ups. no, no nanny's help for me!) Perhaps we can have a degree for every mom who does an awesome job instead?!!

Sometimes, I would stop by friend's house just to see their new buys and vice versa...oh, no, this is not a duty, this is plain pleasure!!!! ^O^ But it does make our day even rewarding, isn't it!!?


1. Top: 
sheer halter blouse
Nicholas K bomber leather jacket

2. Bottom:
Flared/tulip shape gold pants (Bought in Rome)

3. Accessory:
GAP 06' Vintage felt hat (Bought in Rome)
Elfi Altendofer Africa white turquoise spike loop earrings 
Chloe orange Sally

4. Shoes:
Miu Miu wedge platform in blue calf-skin 

Blue top, blue nail polish, and blue shoes... but I have a very cheeky mood! ^^

Leather jacket will tone down this might be too glamourous for everyday pants!

How do you strut your wide/flared pants/jeans at work, to school, for daily routine?

Timeless Chic!

I lost couple pounds over the weekends...probably just water detention on me is now GONE.  It seems a bit loose on me when wearing this Burberry Prorsum rivet-embellished sheath today. .... Thinking of alternating it or not? 

I love the hot pink lip trend and have been wearing hot pink lip color quite often these days!! 
How about you? Orange or Pink? Pick a side!! ^O^

YSL #11 fuchsia!




Rock a summer sheath!!
xoxo Rachel
