    Celebrating International T-shirt Day with Chico’s!

    Did you know it is International T-shirt day? Wohooo!! Today is a day to celebrate the most versatile piece of clothing. Think about it! You can’t exactly wear a fluffy winter coat to the beach on a hot summer day or a bikini in the coldest part of the world. I mean you could, but it is not recommended lol. T-shirts can be worn on or under about any piece of clothing and can even be worn by itself!! I find myself wearing T-shirts a lot but the color T-shirt that I wear most would have to be white. I mean do you blame me? It is the easiest color…

    How Petite Women Rock 2019 Summer Fashion Trend || Tie-Dye

    Weekend Girlfriends Trip to Stratford Canada ||Bentley’s Lofts, AO Pasta and Little Shop of Horrors

    This is the second post about my weekend girlfriends trip to Stratford, Canada this past weekend. You can read the first part here. After the amazing lunch, cocktail reception and the spa services, we checked into our accommodations: Bentley’s Lofts. It seems like there are quite a few unique combinations of restaurants plus hotel type of places in Stratford. Bentley’s Lofts is one of them too, a luxurious bi-level loft suites in the heart of downtown Stratford. Downstairs is the restaurant area and upstairs is where the loft is located. There is a king size bed downstairs and another single bed upstairs with a bathroom and closet. It is very spacious…

    Susan G Komen 3-Day Walk Fundraiser Party Recap

    This past Sunday, my 3-Day Walk partner Alison Hill and I held our Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Fundraiser Party at our beloved Area45 Fitness in Troy, Michigan. It was a long day and a lot of work leading to the party, but it was a success and Alison reached her goal of $2300. Now we can walk together as a team of Color and Grace this August 2nd to 4th! It has been more than 4 months after I personally signed up to walk 60 miles in 3 days to raise money for breast cancer research. First I recruited Alison as my team member.

    No-Stain White Denim Jeans at Chico’s

    No-Stain White Jeans Powered by Stain-Repel, Bright White™ Technology at Chico’s Now the summer season has officially started after Memorial Day. Although in Michigan we are for sure feels like still in spring. But it is time to think about some summer wardrobe essentials. In fact, one of the must-have pieces in my wardrobe all year long is white denim jeans. I love the look of crisp white denim with pretty much everything. I wear them with pretty much everything in every season and the magic part is, white denim goes with everything, from semi-formal to casual, from workwear to vacation look. If you haven’t fallen in love with white denim…

    Get What You Want || Women’s Empowerment Starts On A Personal Level

    What is your definition of women’s empowerment?  For me, it is about women being free to be our independent selves. Being treated equally by others in all aspects of life without a gender label. As a woman, I understand I must acquire empowerment myself rather than having it given to me by others. But are we focusing on empowering only certain areas of a woman’s life (like our careers or family life)? Are we limiting ourselves? What about our empowerment in the bedroom and intimate relationships? Women have been socialized to put their needs second to their partner’s needs, both inside and outside of the bedroom. For me, women’s empowerment…

    Empowering Women with Natori || I am Good Enough

    This post is partnered with Natori. But all opinions are my own. I used to hate my body and dislike myself for a long time. The memory of my mom yelling at me saying how ugly I am and showing me her discussed face seemed to haunt me for a long time. Then I turned 13 years old, my period came and my boobs started to grow. I got yelled at for being a dirty women now. My mom was super ashamed of my body because my boobs were bigger than the average Chinese girls. She made me hunch over so I can make my boobs appear smaller. She yelled…
