The Lincoln Afterglow – Fash Bash at the Detroit Institute of Arts

On Aug. 16, I was invited to the Lincoln Afterglow – Fash Bash at the Detroit Institute of Arts in downtown Detroit.

The Detroit Institute of Arts auxiliary Founders Junior Council and Neiman Marcus held its annual Fash Bash fundraising event at the DIA in Detroit. The event begins with an outdoor cocktail party, followed by the Neiman Marcus’ “Art of Fashion” runway show in the museum’s Great Hall and Rivera Court, and concludes with drinks and dancing at The Lincoln Motor Company Afterglow, sponsored for the fourth year by Lincoln.

Attendees had a first look at the season’s hottest fashions, enjoyed a cocktail reception, and continued festivities at the Lincoln Motor Company Afterglow. Proceeds from the fashion-forward social event benefited the Detroit Institute of Arts.

Fash Bash has been Metro Detroit’s most popular social event. It features the upcoming season’s hottest couture fashions in the Neiman Marcus Art of Fashion Runway Show. I really enjoyed people watching during the party. 😉

I am not a party person, but I stayed for a long time. Lol. I guess I really enjoyed it! What is your biggest or super fun local social event?

See The World || Greece/Santorini Trip Recap

Santorini has been on my bucket list for many years! This year I finally decided to just make it happen. I chose to go in October because I read it is the off season. I am not a big fan with millions people around any more. Since I have lived in Shanghai for 9 years, I really enjoy the peaceful small town life now. 😉

See The World || Greece/Santorini Trip Recap

If you have been following me on my Instagram, you probably have already seen all the photos and videos I posted about my trip. If not, here you go. 🙂

Day 1: Arrive in Athens. 7 hours time difference, overnight flight and 3 hours bus ride to hotel, I was excited. Went out for late lunch then took a nap and then ordered room service for dinner. I am on vacation, so just relax, right? Lol! Make sure you read this IG caption, there was a cute story that day!

Arrived in #Athens a few hours ago. Had super long bus ride from airport to my hotel due to traffic and protesters. People in my bus were angry because the delay. It was very intense of 3 hours. Anyway, I went out to eat after I finally settled in my hotel and my day started to feel like a vacation again. Lol. Food here is so yummy. I ordered a small bottle local wine but only was able to finish one glass. So I gave rest of it to two young local girls next to me. They were so surprised. A few minutes later, one of the girls came to me and said, “Please wait here, don’t leave.”” Lol, so I did. It turned out they ordered me a very yummy dessert to say thank you. Just love those moments when I travel! ❤️ #colorandgrace #michiganinfluencer #michiganblogger #fulltimeinfluencer #socialmediacoach #Travel #travelers #femaletraveler #SoloTravel #TravelBlogger #TravelPhotography  #TravelersJournal #TravelLife #TravelPics #TravelTips #TravelGirls #TravelAddict #Travelgram #Travellook  #Passport #Vacation #Paradise #Trips  #RoundTheWorld #travelfashion

Day 2: Visited Acropolis in Athens. Met a new friend too! Make sure you watch the short video and you will see her!;)

Day 3: Travel from Athens to Santorini by ferry. A super long day again! But the view was totally worth it! I had a super nice suite at my villa right next to the ocean! I enjoyed my ocean view lunch and sunset dinner very much. For a foodie, Greece is the heaven for me! Lol!

Day 4: Booked a sunset cruise tour and met more new friends.

I had a lot of Instagram issues, like blocking, could’t post videos and so on. You can see the video about that day on my Facebook below.

Day 5: Photo shoot!

My vacation has never been pure vacation because I need to get all the material for my blog and social media later. I hired a local bus driver to take me around the island and take photos for me. The most questions I have been asked about is “Who is your photographer?” Lol, you see, I don’t really have one. I just find whoever I can find at that moment and ask them to take photos of me. 😉 Below is one of the photos my driver took. Later I enjoyed one person candle light dinner at my villa. 🙂

I have dense breast tissues and have put on the high-risk list of breast cancer since I turned 40. Last year I was called back to do the second mammogram. That 20 minutes of waiting time for the result, had to be the most nerve-racking time of my life. I couldn't imagine how I could deal with breast cancer alone since I lost my husband not long ago. Luckily everything turned out is normal. For Breast Cancer Awareness month, Soho Style is partnering up with the American Cancer Society. 100% of the proceeds made from this barrette piece (which I am wearing in this video) during October will be donated to the cause. Supporting the fighters, admiring the survivors, honoring the taken, and never giving up hope. I proudly wear this symbolic piece along with my pink highlights both from @shopsohostyle. Please show your support to join the fight against breast cancer.

If you love food, definitely you need to go to Greece. Santorini is probably the most beautiful island that I have ever been, so YES! You should go if you haven’t!
