Nespresso, fun in San Francisco!

(This post has been updated and is permitted publicly from last year's shoot.) 

Last year, I did a commercial photo shoot for Nespresso. I have never drank that many shots of espresso in one day and I was so hyper the whole time when we were shooting photos inside Nespresso boutique San Francisco. "Overly joyous" is probably the best word to describe me that day. Well, in fact, not only because of the espresso I had from the whole morning, but also the fun charisma inside Nespresso boutique that made me super ecstatic. Everything displayed in the boutique is so neat and chic including colorful and various coffee capsules, and pretty cups, mugs and saucers...etc. If it weren't because I was sort of working, I would have bought me some cute espresso shot glasses home already. Wait, I almost forgot to mention that they also serve full range of dessert and some savories along with fancy coffee drinks in the upper, street level. The store intends to ply their customers with all the tasty treats from local bakery in San Francisco and I definitely can imagine me and my girlfriends enjoy an afternoon tea there in the near future. 

I didn't get any photos in the upper, street level as we were photographing. I will leave it to you to explore then. But I can tell ya that they have espresso bar at street level and allow customers to sit, rest, chat, browse their coffee machines as well as its functionality on IPad...(errrr....what can I say, it is almost a staple of a hip store nowadays.) and I happened to play with it while doing the photo shooting.  Thus, I actually had a good idea of which coffee machine i covet for myself. lol..... 


Now you almost can spot Nespresso boutique around the world. I spotted several while we were traveling in southern France too.  If you ever visit SF, make sure you plan a morning snacks or afternoon tea there if you are in San Francisco.  You won't be disappointed!

Have fun in San Francisco.

Always Posh in my Own Styles.

I had a busy week, plus the last bits of planning for NYC trip.  Dinner and brunch reservations, and we even bought Hamilton musical tickets. Since we are visiting NYC during Memorial weekend, hope we can find some good bargain shopping in The Big Apple too. One thing I am sure with this girls' trip is we are going to have tons of fun before one of my gf goes to law school this fall. It is a clean slate for her and I am sure it will also be a magnificent journey down the road. 
Back to my all time passion: Fashion. I like fine garments and I collect them to do mix and match over past seasons. However, what makes my style unique is intricate cuttings and perfect fitting that flatter my body. I don't follow trends just to claim I am fashion forward. I have my own methods of sorting through marketing injected advertisements for the best seasonal looks. Popularity isn't gained from what brands you wear but what styles you choose to wear. I wear street fashion in discretion just…

Wedge + Clog ! MINE is Clog + Heel!

I came across this Max Mara clog heels. I can't help myself buying it.


Now I am very excited.....why? Cause' it is extraordinary. I love the golden studded along the leather and since I don't like wedge too much, this stiletto is perfect for me.


So, did you see the bottom picture to the right? Kate Olsen!!? or Dree Hemingway's looks might work w/ Max Mara clog heels. ( Whose pic. is the very first one w/ fuchsia vest) Normally I am not a copy cat, but this time, I will see if I have something similar like what she wears w/. Yes, that will be a good start to tackle this pair of heels.

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…
