    What to Do This Labor Day Weekend In Michigan

    Labor Day weekend is often thought of as the last hurrah of summer– *tear*– so let’s be sure to enjoy our three day weekend to its absolute fullest! Of course, you all know how much I LOVE to travel to exciting new exotic destinations for another stamp on my passport, but I think we all take for granted how many amazing things are going on right in our own backyards. I’m always on the hunt for the next big thing not only in fashion, but in travel as well. New York and LA have held the crown as the glittering American cities we all long to visit and live in,…

    Celebrating Women’s Equality Day

    Today celebrates the anniversary of the day the United States adopted the 19th Amendment in 1920, the amendment that allowed Women to vote in elections. While women have come a long, long way since then, it’s important to know our fight towards equality is not over.  Celebrating today is especially important to me because when I was a little girl growing up in rural China, girls were not valued the way boys were valued. I remember one time when my mother had gotten us a little bit of food since we often went without it, she gave more to my brother because he was seen as the more important one…

    Learning to Talk About Menopause

    In Chinese culture, there’s a lot of topics too ‘inappropriate’ to talk about. Many of these taboo subjects are things that happen often and to many people. While in American culture we might be more open about certain things, Chinese culture is the exact opposite. It took me a while to get used to something that was such a culture shock for me. One of the biggest taboo conversations is nearly anything that has to do with women’s bodies. That’s one of the many things I love about America. Talking about these things that are a part of everyday life are important so that you no longer have to struggle…

    Behind the Scenes with a Social Media Assistant

    By Lois Pele It was a Monday afternoon this spring when I received a long awaited phone call from the social media influencer, Grace Liang. I was nervous to pick up the phone because I knew I was either going to get a positive response or a negative one. After picking up the phone and hearing the words “You’re hired” I texted my friend right away and told him that I have received the job! Before Grace reached out about her assistant position I was exploring other fields. Since I am currently in nursing school, I was looking for an opportunity in the hospital for the summer time but they…

    Why We Love Madewell 70’s Fashion

    Maybe I’m thinking about this a little too soon, but fall fashion is one of my favorite seasons and I already have so many cute outfits planned! Recently fashion trends are just borrowing from past generations, which brings us to the current repeat of 70’s fashion. Sometimes the latest fashion trends, although super cute, aren’t really made for petite adults. Thanks to Madewell, keeping up with style, while staying classy, is made super easy. This outfit is head-to-toe Madewell. But first let’s talk about 70’s fashion in the 70’s. Fashion then was mostly influenced by music genres. You could tell who fell into what cliche category by how they dressed.…

    A Day In The Life of A Blogger

    What does a 3rdyear nursing student, newlywed and a fulltime blogger have in common? The simple answer: a zest for life and passion to keep learning.  This post is written by Stephanie Probert, Grace’s assistant. Being a fulltime blogger, one question that Grace receives most often is: What exactly is a blogger anyway and what do you do?  As Grace’s assistants, Lois and I thought it would be interesting to share our view on the day to day reality of blogging and the social media influencer world. Both Lois and I are at two very different points in our lives; her a full-time nursing student, lover of coffee and queen…

    Five Star View and 4-Diamond Dining Experiences at Iridescence

    There is one question I was often asked during the interview which is, “What is one thing that others don’t know about you?” My answer is always, “I AM A FOODIE!” Yes, I love food, I appreciate the art of cooking and I eat just about everything. Lol! So for a life-long foodie, I know where to find the great food. [show_shopthepost_widget id=”3542075″] In the last few years, so many new restaurants have opened up in the Detroit area. Despite all the new competition one of my long-time favorites is still Iridescence at the MotorCity Casino in downtown Detroit. Why? Featuring spectacular views of the city skyline, Iridescence is Detroit’s…

    Wellness ||Exploring CBD Oil With X-SPRAYS

    This post is partnered with X-SPRAYS. But all the options are my own! I had never heard about cbd oil in my whole life until about two months ago. Lol, I know, I have lived a sheltered life. A social media agent that I have worked with for a long time asked me if I would like to try the CBD oil (since it is really good for the skin and sleep). I was like, OF COURSE! I’d heard of CBDNutra.co.uk from my friends, who couldn’t recommend it enough. So hey ho – I will try anything that will help me with my sleep and if my skin can get…
