    Fashion collaboration and giveaway

    If you are a regular reader you may remember I did a collaboration blog with Rachel of Garaytreasures with faux fur vests. We both had such a blast that we decided to do it again. We were talking and noticed that we both happen to own and rock a white hat and a leather cuff bracelet so that is the subject of today’s collaboration. And to spice things up we are tying it in with a giveaway. You can enter anytime from today until March 30 by filling out the form below. And if you came back to see how my driving lesson posts are coming along, don’t worry, our…

    What to wear for a St. Patrick’s Day party

    One of the interesting things I like about American life is that most people always seem willing to join in if a party is involved! I noticed soon after I moved from China that there are so many unusual holidays, but people are happy to help celebrate. When my husband tried to explain to me about St. Patrick’s Day I was very confused. Most people in China had heard about Valentine’s Day and even Christmas but what was this holiday? What is a leprechaun and where is that pot of gold? When I looked into the history there was something about snakes, how did this become a holiday or a…

    Leopard top and cutoff jean shorts

    You mean between these lines? So, I had to learn to drive a car after I moved to America. Most of you did that when you were still in high school. Here I was, an adult living in another country, not very comfortable reading English yet and sitting in the driver’s seat of a car for the first time. My husband thought he’d be the perfect teacher for me since he had grown up with cars and had a lot of miles of experience. There’s a saying that experience is a great teacher. We found out though that this doesn’t automatically mean that if you have experience YOU will be…

    An instant outfit—-Dress

    Hi everybody! My name is Grace and I am the editor of colorandgrace.com. It is my pleasure to be the guest writer for this amazing blog by Rhea! I am so excited to have this chance to share my fashion “two cents” with you. For most modern women, our life is so busy juggling family and work responsibilities that we often don’t take time for ourselves. So I really appreciate whoever it was that first created the dress for women. This one piece garment is a real life saver because it is so easy to style and naturally flattering to a women’s figure. You can never have too many dresses…

    Classy trench coat and jeans

    Is it supposed to make that noise? As I hope you know, I’ve been writing about how I learned to drive after moving to America. My fiancé was my driving teacher and his old little car was my practice target! We had survived my first lesson without driving in the nearby lake so after a day or two to recover I was ready to give it another go. Maybe this time I would even get the car out of first gear! The adventures we had driving in our local cemetery ended on a scary note so we thought maybe we would try somewhere else for lesson 2. My fiancé/driving teacher…

    Happy Birthday to Me!

    What was your best birthday memory? Mine was on this day exactly 10 years ago. ? ?In China, most adults don’t really celebrate their birthday until maybe they are more than 60 years old. I was quite surprised at how crazy people in America go for birthdays. Even little kids have huge parties and piles of gifts. When I was growing up, your birthday was pretty much just another day. There were no parties, no cake, no candles and no gifts. The best birthday memory I have from childhood is when my mom cooked two hard boiled eggs for me. For a family that was lacking food, eggs were absolutely…

    Pullover and long skirt

    It’s all downhill from here! I would guess that most of the people reading this learned how to drive a car when they were teenagers. Probably you went to a driving school and had professional instructors and special cars with warning signs and safety features. I am not most people. I didn’t learn until I was quite a bit out of my teens and my future husband was my teacher. And his little old car was my classroom! For my first time behind the steering wheel we went to the nearby cemetery in our town. This may sound unusual but in fact it was a pretty good place to learn.…

    A brief interview with fashion blogger Rhea

    One day my student suddenly asked me what I had wanted to do when I was their age. This question got me thinking. There were 3 jobs that I really liked back then, news reporter, police officer and lawyer. As you can see, somehow I wanted to make this world a little bit better if I can, Lol! I am a full time teacher and a fashion blogger now and I sort of accomplished my childhood dream. Because both my day job and my blog are inspiring others to be the best they can be. Blogging has been a great way to get to know a lot of other people…

    letter T-shirt and leather skinny

    The lessons begin! If you’ve been reading along, you know that I lived in China my whole life until only about 8 years ago. I had never driven a car but quickly found that now I was living in America I would have to learn sooner rather than later. I had explored my very small town about as much as I could by walking and wanted to broaden my new world. Of course, my American fiancé had driven since high school and pretty much grew up in cars. Until very recently the Chinese just didn’t have that same exposure to car culture. America is the home of the road trip.…

    3 months? No way!!!

    In many relationships, the 3 month mark is the first important milestone for most people to celebrate! Think about it this way, two people have gone through an entire season of the year and are still together! That is amazing for a lot of couples! Today is the 3 month anniversary of my first post on ColorAndGrace.com. What is really amazing to me is that I am not only still blogging but even going stronger! Today is an important date for my husband and me to remember, and celebrate! Over the past 90 days we’ve had tears and laughter and more than a few long sleepless nights! I guess many…
