    Petite fashion tricks playing with the length

    Petite fashion tricks: playing with the length Do you remember that for my real job I am a teacher? You do? Great! Thank you for paying attention. But it still won’t get you out of quiz time! Hey, that’s what teachers do! 😉 How tall do you think I am? No cheating! Don’t peek! Well, I hope you got that answer right too. I am 5 feet, period. I know, I don’t look like only 60 inches, I usually look taller. 😉 How? I cheat of course! I’m the teacher so it’s OK that I cheat. You still can’t. That’s one of the best things about my job, it’s based…

    Road Trip Truck Trouble

    Road Trip Truck Trouble So we were on vacation and driving to NYC. We were taking a week and seeing some sights on the way. Monday was going to be our longest travel day and we had been driving for hours but still had pretty far to go. We had decided to stop that night just before crossing over from New Jersey into Manhattan. Hotels and parking were pretty pricy in the city and we would be getting in quite late. So we thought why not save some money and go over (well actually under since we’d be crossing the Hudson River through the Lincoln Tunnel) in the morning? We’d…

    They got it right/Style Collaboration Are you still following celebrities for fashion and style inspirations? Oh no! If so, you’re already out of date! 😉 In fact, nowadays fashion bloggers are the new cool kids on the block and already are at the leading edge of the trends all over the world. You know I love colors, and especially I mean bold colors. Just simply because they add so much fun to my look and lighten up my mood. But you also know I love a chic and elegant look, so that means I can’t help but be a big fan of classic BLACK AND WHITE. As you can see…

    What to wear on a boat ride?

    What to wear on a boat ride? Since I started this blog at end of last year, I have been super busy. As you know I am a teacher so I have my summer off. But it seemed I was even more busy because there are always so many things I can do to improve my blog and try to get more traffic. Do you see a patten here? I am a workaholic and I am not happy with it! So I promised myself that at least for the month of August I would really have my summer break! Well, it’s fair to say that I am getting better. But…

    What the YELP is going on here?

    What the YELP is going on here? So last month we took a road trip vacation to NYC. It’s not surprising that I had not been there before. After all, I’ve only been in the USA for a bit over 8 years. What is surprising is that my husband had never made it to the Big Apple yet. He has lived here his whole life. And not that he’s old but he has gotten some Senior discounts recently without even being asked his age! And no, he wasn’t happy about it. Anyway, we had started our trip out by crossing over into nearby Ontario, Canada. Our vacation started strong with…

    Pink fringe bag

    Pink fringe bag If you have been following me for a while, you probably will have noticed this pink fringe bag. It is the most popular one among all my bag collection. Even my gold Valentino can’t compare with this $30 bag. Lol! I have a golden rule for organizing my closet to avoid clutter. That is however many pieces I buy, I need to get rid of the same number. Other than donating to a local charity, I sometimes drop things at thrift or consignment stores too. I found this bag at one of these store more than a year ago. It was brand new with the original tag…

    The honeymoon’s NOT over!

    The honeymoon’s NOT over! You regular readers probably know that I had a vacation to NYC a couple weeks ago. This was a road trip and because we live in Michigan it’s actually more direct to go through Canada. So that’s what we did, at least on the way to the Big Apple. Right on the way is a pretty famous sight that’s also been known as the honeymoon destination of choice for over a century. Of course I’m talking about Niagara Falls. I’ve lived about a 4 hour drive from this world famous sight for 8 years and until last month have never seen it. Well I have to…
