    Shop Fall Floral at Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi, Michigan

    Shop Fall Floral at Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi, Michigan This is a sponsored post by Twelve Oaks Mall but all opinions and experiences are 100% my own. Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi Michigan and I have a very special connection. The story of this connection has to begin 10 years ago. When I first moved to America from Shanghai, China, I lived in a city called Howell… population under 10k. In China, we don’t call this little tiny place city, we call it small village. 😉 Anyway, if you have never been to Shanghai, you may not truly understand how huge the changes were for me. Shanghai has 24…

    How to Wear Your Bra Outside with the Bra-Over-Shirt-Trend

    How to Wear Your Bra Outside with the Bra-Over-Shirt-Trend In recent years, the lingerie-as-outerwear trend has become hotter and hotter. We have seen everything from wearing a set of classic silk PJs to a red carpet event, to wearing a silk slip sleeping gown to a party. Of course, another more “look at me” trend is Bra-over-shirt. Wait… you’re wearing your bra outside of your top? Yup! Wearing underwear as outerwear isn’t anything new. Madonna was rocking her iconic Gaultier cone bra back in 1990. Lady Gaga wore a set of velvet bra and shorts outside at the 2009 ACE Awards in New York in November 2009. Her undergarment look…

    2017 Fall Fashion Trend | Wide Belts

    2017 Fall Fashion Trend | Wide Belts This fall, wide belts are making a big come back. But, it is a little bit different from the wide belt that you may remember from 10 or 15 years ago. This time around an extra wide belt is the hottest piece. Hide your waist no more! It’s time to belt your favorite blouse and show off your shape. The FW17 runways were filled with wide belts over blouses, jackets, sweaters, and dresses. But please be cautious with this trend. Everyone can wear a belt, but a wide or extra wide belt may not necessarily be the best choice for everyone. If your…

    Hit the Outdoors in Style and Comfort with Glampinghub Part 1

    Hit the Outdoors in Style and Comfort with Glampinghub.com Part 1 I grew up in the Chinese countryside. I didn’t have a single toy when I was little but I had the whole world of nature as my playground. I spent hours outside – running, climbing, jumping, crawling and sitting. Our house was tiny and my mom wanted me out of the way when she was cooking so the Great Outdoors was where I spent a lot of time. But I knew when I grew up, I’d have a nice place to stay where I would be comfortable, warm and dry. So after I moved to America, and my husband…
