My True Identity With My Heritage DNA

My True Identity With My Heritage DNA

I have never met my dad’s parents since they both passed away before I was born. The only grandparents I had were from my mom’s side. I heard some of their stories, but we didn’t even have any photos of them. So seriously, there is not much of a history left for me to discover.

My True Identity With My Heritage DNA

When I was young, I often got picked on because my nose is bigger and fuller than most Chinese people. Even my aunts (my mom’s sisters) would tease me by saying “the big nose is the ugly” and that it runs in my dad’s family. Sure enough, all of my dad’s sisters and brothers have the same type of nose. Many years later, I started to hear people say they like my nose because it is tall and straight. What a life lesson I learned from this! At times something can be your flaw, but later it may become your highlight. Lol! I don’t think my nose is the best feature on my face, but I do love having a bridge on my nose to hold my cool sunglasses. Most Chinese have trouble with this and they have to find special designs to wear. 😉

Several years ago, my late husband and I loved watching a TV show called Ancestry. If you are not familiar with the show, it is about celebrities discovering their family history and learning more about their family tree. There were a lot of shocking results and it was a great show. My man always wanted to know who he really is and would like to build a family tree. I even gave him an online program to do that as a Christmas gift. But, he never got the chance to do anything with it.

When My Heritage contacted me and asked me if would like to try their service, I thought it may be a great start for me to see the results. If it is easy to use, we may buy more test kits later to test out our families as my man hoped. Of course I am curious whether I have a small percentage of western DNA. I have been guessing that is where I got my western looking nose.

Several weeks ago, I received the kit. It is quite simple to use. Just do a cheek swab (no blood or spit) and it literally only took just 2 minutes. The next step is to mail the swab in to their lab in the provided enclosed envelope, and I received my results online in 4 weeks.

So here are my test results. Drum roll please……

Yay! I am 100% pure Asian! I guess my nose will remain a mystery. 😉

From Summer to Fall with Picadilly Canada

From Summer to Fall with Picadilly Canada

Last week in Michigan, we had a few super hot days with temperatures above 90 degrees. This week, the heat wave has remained. To be honest with you, I have no complaints because I love summer and warm weather.

But I also know I need to prepare for the fall. I love to continue using some of my summer pieces to transition to fall. Just like this RUFFLED SLEEVELESS BLOUSE from Picadilly Canada. It has black and white, two colors and sizes run from XS to XXL. I got a size small a few month ago, but now after I lost some weight, it is a little bit big on me. It is quite long for my 5 foot frame so I always tuck it in to my pants or skirt.

This RUFFLED SLEEVELESS BLOUSE is a great transition piece. Wear it in warm weather on it’s own, or when it’s cool pair it with a cute jacket or sweater over the top. This button-up top has a collar and front ruffles – a classy piece that can be worn for almost any occasion. This sleeveless top is done in a solid chiffon. It is sheer, but there is a solid colored spaghetti top that comes with it, so it is quite handy. 😉 I added the black pin to the shirt to get that Chanel vibe.

I wear it with the CENTER SEAMED ANKLE PANT from the same company. The Center Seamed Ankle Pant is a wardrobe staple for fall. With a wide elasticated waist band, and slight flare at the ankle, these pants are very flattering and easy to wear. These pants are done in a textured double jacquard.

I am not going to show you how to wear this pair of black pants. Everyone knows how to wear them, right? They goes with everything! So below is a look that I paired this top with for a fall style look with faux leather and burgundy.
