    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…

    One Dress Three Looks from Timeless Michael Kors

    Michael Kors has known by most people because of his handbags. But in recent years, his clothing line has become equally popular among many women with the wide price range from less than one hundred dollars workwear to four or five thousand dollars of couture pieces. As one of the most notable American designers and brands of our time, Michael Kors founded his luxury brand in 1981 and has become synonymous with glamour, timeless design and a jet set lifestyle. Below are three looks that I put together by using Michael Kors from head to toe. I have always been into travel and its safe to say I like to…

    Being the Best of Me || The Healing Journey from an Abusive Childhood

    Two weeks ago during a meditation program called Tree of Life in Train the Trainer with Jack Canfield, I finally broke through and felt the major healing from my abusive childhood. My parents had an arranged marriage. They hated each other but still chose to stick together after daily fights. We were super poor with a dirt floor, straw roof and there wasn’t running water, indoor toilet or electricity. Above suffering from poverty, I had been claimeed as worthless by my mom. According to her, no one will love me since I am so ugly and have a very bad personality. According to her, I am lazy, bad behaved and…

    What to Wear to a Rooftop Bar in Early Spring

    In 2016 when I was a TV co-host, I have written a post called What to wear to a rooftop bar, you can read it to see my summer rooftop bar look, and my shorter hair style too! Lol! There are so many new restaurants, bars, and hotels popping up in Detroit these days. Last Friday I was invited to the private preview at The Monarch Club. This Detroit’s newest rooftop bar is opening just in time for the warm weather that’s on the way to the area. The Monarch Club is located in the Metropolitan Building at the top of the Element Hotel.

    The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® Walk in Michigan Has Been Fully Funded

    I am thrilled to share with you this amazing news! My fundraiser for The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® walk in Michigan this August to fight again breast cancer has been fully funded!!! What a journey! It all started 10 years ago. I was invited to a local Susan G. Komen meeting. The speaker there was super amazing and I remember crying and smiling while she was telling us the story. But I didn’t join the fundraiser group because my husband just lost his job. Fast forward to about 4 years ago. My late husband was diagnosed with skin cancer. When you have lived with cancer, most people become more aware…

    Celebrating Step-Mom’s Mother’s Day with adidas

    This post is partnered with adidas, but all opinions are my own. There are a few questions I have been constantly asked for the last two years. “Are you married?” “Do you have kids?” The obvious answer is “No, I am not married and I don’t have kids”. But the real answer is not that obvious. “I am a widow and I have two step-kids. They are adults and I also have two granddaughters” “Really?!” Lol, I know, my answer is quite long and it often leads to even more questions. I guess my life is quite complicated. As their step-mom, I am the lucky one! All the love I…
