    Ever Pretty dress review fashion linkup

    Ever Pretty dress review fashion linkup Have you ever thought about being pretty forever? I never did when I was young. It is not because I was very mature at a young age. No, it was more because I was not pretty at all. And I mean there was no aspect that I could honestly think of as pretty, my hair, my skin, my nails, my wardrobe, none of it. But after I met my husband, he would tell me I am very beautiful every day. I didn’t believe him because A) his eyesight is pretty bad and B) the person I saw in the mirror every day didn’t please…

    Queen Fitzgerald fur jeweled earmuffs review linkup giveaway

    Queen Fitzgerald fur jeweled earmuffs review linkup giveaway We are having a pretty mild winter this year in Michigan. That is until last week. The temperature suddenly dropped and winter showed its true power and bad attitude. I was walking to my car after work, and my face and ears literally hurt from the cold. I really wished I had some toasty warm earmuffs at that moment. Well, sometimes wishes do come true because that night I was contacted by Queen Fitzgerald to review one their fancy and furry earmuffs. My first thought was “what great timing, this is AWESOME!” My second thought was “darn, if I knew my next…

    Rita and Phill Custom-Fit Skirts review and fashion linkup

    Rita and Phill Custom-Fit Skirts review and fashion linkup Nowadays, I am all about customization. I just don’t believe in one size fits all, or one style fits all. You may still remember from my previous post, that I have a very odd figure. You may say, come on girl, you look perfect. Oh well, thank you very much for saying that, but I know who I am. I do have a problem finding the best fitting clothes all the time. Why? Because my bust is a size medium, my waist is size large, and my butt is size small. You see? Everybody has something they’d like to trade in…

    What to wear for a Christmas gathering fashion linkup

    What to wear for a Christmas gathering fashion linkup When we were young, we didn’t care about hanging out with those older family members. We were way too busy discovering the wide world around us. Now we are getting older, or more correctly, wiser and more experienced, we realize that it doesn’t matter how fancy and attractive the far away world is, our family is the only world we really live in. That is why in recent years I am more and more drawn to family gatherings. Especially during the holidays. It’s a time to catch up on some family news and gossip and see those familiar faces. I get…

    Larimar bracelet review and fashion linkup

    Larimar bracelet review and fashion linkup Last weekend I had an interview with one of our local e-magazines. There were quite a few questions but one that stuck out was this: “If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would it be?” I didn’t even need to think twice for this. I hate cold weather. When I was growing up in the far northern part of China, winter was so harsh and the frostbite would cover my feet and hands. That was one of the main reasons why, when I finished my university, I left my frigid hometown to move south to Shanghai. At last, I was…

    Wearing Pink fashion linkup

    Wearing Pink fashion linkup Are you a big fan of pink? I never was. No, not the singer, she’s awesome! I mean the color of course. Anyway, in recent years I started to appreciate this color more and more. Especially the light pink, or as some people call it, blush. Sometimes it’s so soft I call it the barely there pink color. What I really like about it is that it’s quite feminine but still very chic. When I was young, I never felt that I was a girly girl. It just seemed so far from who I was. My brother was my best friend and he helped me with…

    Gallery Direct Fine Art Prints Review and fashion linkup

    Gallery Direct Fine Art Prints Review and fashion linkup There are so many people who have told me that they really like how I use colors in my outfits. Well, I do love colors. Uh, hello! My blog is called COLOR And Grace. You know, dressing up nicely and also having your own personal spin, is a kind of art for me. Since I think of it as an art form, finding color combo inspirations from other art forms seems like a natural. Going to the local museum over and over didn’t seem too practical to me so I checked out my go to source of information place, the internet!…

    Azliany leather bag review and fashion linkup

    Azliany leather bag review and fashion linkup I sure had fun with all the Christmas shopping for gifts for our family. I think with all the excitement though, I must have blacked out for a while. When I came to, there were several things for me that got ordered too. 😉 Somehow spending money just makes me happy. It is SO much more fun than what I have to do to earn it! Lol, I guess that’s why shopping is also officially called therapy. There are still a few things I need to find but the large majority has been ordered and will be here soon. A few years ago…

    SheIn review and fashion linkup

    SheIn review and fashion linkup For a perfectly stylish and functional fall/winter wardrobe in Michigan, coats are a must have. Actually I would have to say, coats are the most important part of this season’s wardrobe. If you have been following me since last winter, you probably already noticed that I have a lot of coats. Pretty much every single color of the rainbow shows up somewhere in my coat closet. 😉 Well, duh! COLOR and Grace after all, I love colors. But I also appreciate the colors of nature too. Those colors are so easy to use for everyday life. Just like this one I am wearing today. It’s…

    AIBI watch review and fashion linkup

    AIBI watch review and fashion linkup AAAHHHHHHH!!!!! There’s a strange woman in our house! There she is! Right there; in the mirror! Yes, that girl with the short hair looks very different to me. I haven’t been to a hair salon in two years and I have had long hair for more than 6 years. So I woke up last Saturday and decided it was time to change that. I needed to shake it up and create a new me. So I chopped about 10 inches off and have donated it to Pantene to make a wig for someone who maybe lost their hair because they’re going through chemo. I…
