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 parents can do is to support them, guide them, and listen to them. Never force our value onto them until you understand what your children are going through. Capiche??? 

     You probably don't want to read my self "enlightened" mumbling so let's cut to the chase. We enroute to Berkeley and savored some scones and cheese, before we arrived at Reno. And of course, me, in my fashionable attire-- nothing new. I love how mature my awe-inspiring daughter has become. On the road we often-- or I often-- in fact, rant to her about life and about... some couple's problem/relationship. Most of the time she would nod and sometimes she said she wasn't even listening. Oh well, she is officially my bestie (E/N of course I'm her bestie, I'm her editor/daughter). Love her so much. 

Isn't bikini essential when you travel? 

  Recycle my fashion in Reno. Oldies, but goodies, eh? 
The Christian Louboutin studded clutch from Man's collection with strap is currently in season. Women's collection has almost the same doodle drawing but it lacks a cool attitude without the studs.  

 Of course I have to make a dramatic entrance entering my room. 

I thought I would've inhaled all the second hand smoke in the hotel room so I brought my humidifier (lemongrass & Rose essential oils). Now our room smells heavenly. 

If you followed my instagram, you know I am a cheese lover. Those are just half of the Cheese in my fridge at home which I brought over with me. I don't waste food! 

Hope you enjoy my less-than-perfect & just-come-back to blogsphere updates. 
Until next time, my readers. xoxo Jade

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. …

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…
