My Classic Moment!

Every year, I would invest a piece of Chanel RTW if not every season. Thanks to my Chanel SA that he keeps this dress till the last call so I can score it very EASILY! ^O^  Well, I like little black dress and especially an intricate one. The light tweed, middle zipper and long version of the skirt certainly differentiates itself from rest of the world. 

Chanel, always classic!!


Yu and I are at the same page that we both are into midi-length skirt trend. 

Have a classic moment.

Tatcha Revitalizing Eye Cream and Skin Mist Review!

I have been religiously applied Tatcha's Revitalizing eye cream both day and night for almost a month now and I absolutely love it!  At first I feel the texture of the eye cream is so dense that I am afraid that it will leave my under eye skin with fatty lumps but it didn't.  (Thanks, Tatcha! lol)  As a matter of fact, because of its natural ingredients of Peony, Lonicera Japonica Leaf Extra....... it quickly absorbs into my skin after I patted the cream around my eye contour. 


Tatcha's Revitalizing eye cream says it can decreases the appearance of puffiness, dark circle and eye spot, and this is the product does what it says it will do. My major concern about the skin around my eyes is puffiness, but after I use Tatcha's eye cream, I no longer have to apply tea bags, ice or even rush to pour myself a cup of coffee in the morning to de-puff them. Another major reason I love about this product is it's packed with HADASEI-3 Bioactive Complex. What's in that comple…

Spring 2013 My Must Have!

I don't think I would only covet those listed here but since I cannot have everything, I at least can try something that I might enjoy wearing them this spring/summer 2013. Some of the looks might be so inspiring that they even prevail the trend all the way into fall 2013! 

One interesting thing is the skirt is longer and longer each season while the shorts is shorter and shorter. Ha~ Pick your look, now this way, please!!!

Printed Futuristic!

Prints is still big this year, and in fact, it is outrageous from head to toe.  But as opposed to do a head to toe printed look, I really enjoy wearing BLACK. Hum...it sounds so not me, right??? Maybe my personality is changing or evolving, who knows?  ^O^ Well, I am going to recycle my old black clothes and work it with my printed number or better yet, my new accessory - Jimmy Choo silver-gold perforated heels.  Looking fresh, am I not!!??

Futuristic- Fabulous Jimmy Choo!

Gold and silver accessory always look so edgy, especially silver or gold mirrored heels. I have couple gold and silver-accent heels, and surprisingly, they're very easy to work with everything in my wardrobe. Well, guess I am a color person and nothing could scare me.  Besides, don't we all need to appreciate life and derive as much as we can from personal acquisition?!!! Ha~  

Happy Valentine's!!!!

Green for Valentine!!

It is almost Valentine and I found myself a perfect Valentine gift. ( I know, it sounds lame but..... it is the prefect timing for buying a new bag.) It is perfect in a sense that we are going to visit Marseille, Paris...etc in France soon and I always carry messenger bag while I travel without exception. Another perfect note is this Hermes jypsiere bag is somewhat troublesome to get in and out with that big flap and straps so I am sure the pickpocket won't spot on me. (knocking on the wood right now...) 

Hopefully the weather is warmer in France by then. I think this Menthe/Mint color on this Hermes Jypsiere is the 3rd perfect note for the upcoming spring time, as cheerful as spring's blossom!!! France, here I come!!!!!





I really enjoy the compartments inside this bag!

Gluten-free Basil Lemon Chicken Meal.

Once a while I would like to cook a meal for myself and enjoy its nice presentation before I dig in.  Today's main course is Basil Lemon Chicken. I gathered that idea from doing grocery shopping. Normally the supermarket sells pre-packaged lemon basil chicken and I thought why don't I do that myself at home.  And since this is gluten-free meal, rest of the ingredients are carefully selected. 

Lemon basil chicken: Skinless and boneless chicken thighs, 1 lemon and extra slices, whole basil and chopped basil, dash salt and pepper, and some olive oil.
Instruction: preheat oven 400F 
1. Quinoa
Use 2:1 liquid and quinoa ratio to cook quinoa for 20 mins. You will have a fluffy quinoa. 
2. Pan fry basil lemon chicken 2 mins in both side when you have that pretty brown coloring. Transfer chicken to a oven-proof dish and bake 15 mins. 
3. Heat Balsamic vinegar on the stove in "high" in the pan and whisk constantly to prevent burning (I use medium instead). Wait till it reduced its vo…

Hermes Spring Scarf!

Speaking of new season's must-haves, spring scarf is one of the items in my shopping list. They are a fun adornment for any ordinary outfit. Well ,even the look like my outfit is intricate with all the design details, a spring scarf's pop color won't hurt to play a role either. 

I bought this Hermes dolly prints scarf from current season 2013 and I absolutely adore the dolls, hot air balloons and horsey prints on it. Small sized scarf is easy to play with the look that you don't have to think of a million ways to wear it, just wrap it on. Like me, just fold it diagonally and tie it in the back, no fuss, big impact!! Do you like it? ^O^

Get a spring scarf and wear it all year around.
