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

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.

(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 …
