    Nicole Lee bags —the fun party Olivia Palermo Chelsea 28 denim blazer similar/Detroit tiger tee similar/Olivia Palermo Chelsea 28 striped skirt similar/leopard pumps similar/nicole lee bag similar/Dior yellow sunglasses similar I have quite a collection of Nicole Lee bags as you can see below. The colorful fun twist of these bags fits my style just perfectly. This year I am all into high and low mixing. My rule is to choose basic pieces from high end stores and trendy, fun pieces that can be from main stream. This season Nicole Lee has so many cute designs that I really like. Look at those happy and refreshing colors! You can find…

    C’est Mode Chic $100 gift card giveaway

    C’est Mode Chic $100 gift card giveaway As you probably know, I am not from America. I was born and raised in China and only moved here about 9 years ago. Since living here there is one fact that I am absolutely sure of. And that is whoever invented English hated anyone who has to learn it as an adult! I mean you can’t even explain a sentence like “The bass guitar player likes to go bass fishing.” Really? The exact same word with the same 4 letters is pronounced differently and has completely unrelated meanings? Another? Ok, “How much is the bus fare to take me to the county…

    What does a one year old fashion blog look like?

    What does a one year old fashion blog look like? That’s one of those questions like; how high is up? Or; how loud is too loud? If you ask 100 people you will very likely get 101 answers, you know, there’s that guy that always changes his vote! For me, I am a detail oriented person. So I write my goals down to keep me from forgetting the big picture. When I see it on paper it’s more real to me. I’ve always been that way but, hey, it works for me! Anyway, when I was working on my plan for my second year of blogging, I realized there is…

    MP fashion Mila Pershyna interview linkup

    MP Fashion Mila Pershyna interview linkup I met Mila Pershyna, the founder and CEO of MP Fashion LLC, back in November 2015. Her designs were closing the show at the wonderful RAINN Fashion on Common Ground: Designer Showcase & Trunk Show. I was amazed by her designs and herself. What a beautiful and talented woman! Below is Mila rocking her own design at the end of her fashion show. I think you will not be surprised that she was previously a model. In fact, she still models for her own design sometimes. How can she keep her killer figure after giving birth to her super cute son? I don’t know,…

    Nicole Lee Fragrance giveaway fashion linkup

    Nicole Lee Fragrance giveaway fashion linkup I had a wonderful Christmas with my family and friends. But right after Christmas, my internet started acting up. I can’t access any wordpress website, that means I can’t access my own blog! But any other sites are fine. So far the only way I can work on my blog is using my cell phone hotspot. And it is super SLOW! You’ve probably heard the phrase “A fish out of water” to mean someone who isn’t comfortable in their surroundings. Well, I’m “A blogger out of her blog”. And you can be sure that phrase means “GRUMPY”! My husband said if he looks just…

    Winter break giveaway and fashion linkup

    Winter break giveaway and fashion linkup Hooray! Today is the last day of work before my two week winter break! There’s good and bad about everybody’s job, but for sure one thing I do love about being a teacher is the time off for the holidays. Of course having almost the whole summer off is pretty easy to take too, but that’s for another post! Anyway, if I took the time to tell you exactly why and how much I need this time off, the break would be over before I could finish! Of course there’s always one reason that makes this or any break so delightful; I can finally…

    Tignanello leather bag review and fashion linkup

    Tignanello leather bag review and fashion linkup Well? Shopping all done? Presents all wrapped? Yeah, me neither. Well, actually I did pretty good this year. I started my Christmas shopping right after Thanksgiving and now I already received most of the gifts. I just need to wrap them. We’ve even done some of that but still have a few to go. The tree will look even better when all the gifts are placed underneath it. 😉 How is your preparation for the big holiday going? Hey, there’s no need to panic. I mean there’s still plenty of time. After all, Christmas is…let me look at my calendar…oh. IT’S THE END…

    eShakti.com giveaway and fashion link up

    eShakti.com giveaway and fashion link up My job requires me to dress in at least business casual. So I only wear jeans on weekends. A few days ago, when I looked though all my old photos, I found I really don’t have a lot of casual looks. So for today’s post I decided to start the weekend early! You’re welcome! But we fashion bloggers are always on the clock so even when we’re wearing our cool on trend ripped jeans, we have to do it right. Which I am with my SUEDE FINISH SHORT TRENCH COAT from eShakti. Last Monday I wrote about my great experience with eShakti, you can…

    Firmoo giveaway+Fashion link up

    Firmoo giveaway+Fashion link up I rarely enter any giveaways; because I am lazy and some of the giveaway requirements are just ridiculous. I hate to follow more than 5 people on all their social media. I easily have to spend more than a half hour to enter a giveaway, so thanks but no thanks, it is not worth it. But I did break my own rule for my dear husband recently. See how powerful love is? Anyway, I worked with firmoo.com back in May, you can read that post here. I also attached a few photos below. For those of you who are not familiar with FirmOO.com, they are an…
