When was the last time you played outdoors? I guess there are a lot of people who probably can’t even remember. Life gets so busy and we don’t have time for play. Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “It is a happy talent to know how to play.” I sure don’t have this talent. All I have is working hard to try making money and solve problems. 😉 Luckily, I have a husband who knows how to play and relax. He’s good at it. In fact it’s sort of his superpower! I did stop short though when he wanted to be called the Chillinator!

A few days ago I was engaged in this meaningful campaign called Summertime Play – Play Trends from The Voice of Play. The Voice of Play is an education and advocacy initiative of the non-profit membership association, IPEMA, formed to educate and promote the benefits of children and adult’s free outdoor play and playgrounds. Through the Voice of Play website and social media properties, IPEMA highlights the scientifically proven physical, social, emotional and cognitive benefits of play.

With the “always-on,” stressed-out life that everyone seems to lead these days, time for free, outdoor play has never been more important to de-stress and decompress—for kids and their parents. The experts at IPEMA and the Voice of Play explored the hottest trends in play and found eight of the most exciting ideas for playtime—sure to please the kid in all of us. You can read more about all those 8 PLAYFul Trends 2016 to see what is your favorite trend?

Some of you may already know that my husband is going through some health challenges since last year. So in between our regular jobs and occasional hospital visits, we do try to have some outdoor fun. Life is short, so go out to play! 🙂 This Beyond Childhood trend is quite popular now. Adults want to play like kids on even more fronts—in Astoria, Queens, an adults-only playground is planned for a vacant lot under the Triborough Bridge. Well, I don’t need an adult only playground. Outdoor fun can be everywhere, in your neighborhood, or even your backyard. Below are a few things that I love to do during the summer time for outdoor playing.

I bet you have never seen me like this? Lol! Only playing can bring out my true colors. 😉

2. Croquet:

We got this set from my Father-in-law. I don’t have to go to a park to play, just my own backyard is good enough.

You know me, I am a fashion blogger, so even when I am playing, I still have a reputation to maintain. But I will not be that ridiculous to wear heels for play. So this cute loose dress from C. Creations Custom Sewing & Design is perfect for the play time. I have interviewed Cheryl Zemke before and you can read here for more amazing designs and her story. This dress is only $65 and Cheryl can customize it for you based on your measurements.

What are you going to play this weekend?:)

My current clutch envy from Farbod Barsum

My current clutch envy from Farbod Barsum

My wardrobe is separated into 3 parts now. One is for my teaching job, the second one is for my blog and now I am building the 3rd one for my TV host job. If you are new to my blog, you can read What’s Up Detroit Tv host and I want her closet on What’s Up Detroit to catch up more. 😉

Because of this TV gig I need to attend many formal events in addition to my blog events. So I found myself wearing many cocktail dresses or gowns. And of course it naturally follows that I need more evening clutches to go with those fancy dresses.

Talking about shopping for clutches, I am quite picky. Only the unique designs and high quality will make it onto my list. 😉 Currently I have one Karl Lagerfeld clutch.

This one is from Ivanka Trump.

And a few fun clutches.

While I was bag hunting, I came across the Farbod Barsum website and found some very unique handbags and accessories. After I clicked the PRESS button on this website, I was so surprised to see there are so many celebrities who love this brand. But I never even heard of Farbod Barsum. What a shame for a fashion blogger! 😉

So in order to help you avoid making the same mistakes, here is some info about Farbod Barsum. It offers a unique assortment of exotic materials from around the world which are in turn transformed by master artisans in the US using old world couture crafting techniques. When it comes to exotic handbags or the beauty of small details in their accessories from Farbod Barsum, no attention to detail is ever overlooked. They craft their pieces to perfection, to bring their clients one-of-a-kind wearable works of art that endure through the years. Sounds pretty cool, right?

Below are some clutches that I am drooling over. 😉

I am always a big fan of red.

I am addicted to this bigger size of Leela clutch. It is quite edgy. Louise Roe must love it very much since she has two different colors. 😉

I really want this clutch. I don’t want to rush summer but can Christmas come a little early this year? 😉

Farbod Barsum has a store in Beverly Hills, CA. I probably will not want to leave that place for days. Lol!

I know not everyone is as into the high end market, so here are some fun or classy choices for you under $100.
