Easy Mind.

It's almost Mother's day!!!!!!! 


Yes, a very special day that is only dedicated for moms. ^O^ I am very excited because I signed myself up a cooking class at Sur la Table later today at 11 AM.  Then in the future, I am going to endear myself to friends, school teachers ...etc. by making them those pretty classic and delicate sandwich cookies famous from Paris.  (That's ideally speaking if I am not too lazy. haha... ) Well, honestly, I am not a big fan of eating macarons, I merely am fond of the fact that they can be made with so many flavors, colors and they are perfect treats for my eyes.  Don't you just love the piles of assorted macaroons sitting in the shelf so elegantly? 



Yesterday my friend, Alice and I strolled around at Stanford shopping center while Neiman Marcus had their 2 days' event.  We are playing with some bracelets in the store and I find myself very into round beads and monochromatic look these days. Because of that, dressing myself up becomes so easy.  All i need to do is to layer the closest colors pieces together from my closet and ooh la la~

Ease my mind when I don't think of how to mix-and-match my patterns! It's Mother's Day, I am supposed to be laid-back. 


Have a good Mother's day weekend.

You know what?! I almost signed up a French pastry class when I was in Paris. But then Mia said with the cost, I could eat LOTS of ready-made & yummy pastries instead. LOL! She's right, even I learned how to make & I probably won't have time to make any at home again. BUT, I'm just starting a cake decoration class & going to make COCO her 3rd birthday cake in the next few days. Check out my FELTasticFashion Facebook/blogspot soon for all goodies I'm going to make for her =p

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…

A Fashion and Gastronomy trip in NEW YORK CITY

I am back from big apple, New York city. I have to say for anyone who loves fashion will love New York city.  My friend and I enjoyed this grand New York fashion and gastronomy trip every minute and every bite. 

I probably will do a proper annotation for each pictures but let's just have those pictures up for now. 


This sweater from Emporio Armani is love at first sight. All the green, navy and purple and the asymmetrical cut of boatneck make this sweater extraordinary.

From Nice to Monte Carlo to Cannes by Car.

(Couple wording revised)

Hubby and I always enjoy driving in between small cities or big cities or any town in Europe. We never get cold feet even people comment about how difficult or troublesome or scary to drive in Europe. As a matter of fact, my kind of driving is like people in Europe, fast, precise and always look "forward" to the destination - so I enjoy NO speed limit( Actually after I post this blog, the taxi driver in Paris told us that now they do have speed limit in Paris and there are a lot of hidden cameras. )  Ouch~~ 

The tip of driving in Europe is you always need two kinds of maps, one is printed map while your the other map, electronic one fails. If you plan to stay longer than a week and you would like to visit some other towns near by, it would come in handy to have an Internet service on your phone.  Thus, you can always upload a Google map, or whatever map to guide you through the cities.  There are local phone service and you can ask about their rate of …
