A Posh Trousers Look plus SmashBox.

First off, I am not a make-up guru but I try to do a nature and precise look whenever I committed to do "make-up". The foundation is crucial but not necessary if you already have a porcelain-quality skin. I am very dedicated to fight off the aging process and look for ways to keep up a youthful look. Recently, I have been obsessed with essential oils. Lavender, Rose, Frankincense, Bergamot, Lemongrass ...etc. to name a few. Not only do I use them in my diffuser, but also on my skin. I am telling you that the emollient effect of essential oils does to your skin is incredible!! Well, give it a try yourself and thank me later. Alright, the point is I want to share with you the amazing Smashbox primer I had on last Saturday. I dabbed it all over my face "after" my application of sunblocks. Let sunblocks dry a bit before next steps. The Primer will provide a shield prior your foundation application. I don't normally apply foundations but if I do, primer first is a way to go. I like how Smashbox primer leaves my skin very moist and supple all night. 

Smashbox BCA Radiance with Hyaluronic Acid Primer
(Why is the pink cap? It is limited. $5 from each purchase benefits The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with the sale.)

This top from CO won the best shapes and the most practical shirt IMO. Couldn't bear the fuss of sweeping my sleeves and catch satin. Even the sleeves are elaborated as such, I have no problem enjoying my fine dinning the entire night.  

The primer also helps to set the eyeshadows and plushes.

Two cocktails. I really enjoy the Cherrywood Negroni ( top right )which has amazing wood scent and taste like bourbon without overly sweet taste. 


 When foodies gathered together, we can't stop talking about food and wine the whole night. 

 We added extra abalone and A5 Wagyu beef. The perfect marble fat of this 4 oz. Wagyu beef just burst into my mouse. The Napa Cab. I brought is perfectly paired with it. 

 Bottles of wines definitely caught my attention. 

Thanks to Anthony that he showed how Clear Thai ice tea is made. He filters milk himself and made this incredible "Whey" Thai tea cocktail. Complimentary to us at the end of our meals. 

That is the birthday celebration for our friend at Eight Table by George Chen.  It is an incredible experience to do fine dining together and to reminiscence some dishes I had in my childhood. 

Love life, love friends!

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. …

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…

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…
