    Get the best deals every time you shop when you use Octer.com

    Get the best deals every time you shop when you use Octer.com I love a good deal when I shop. Sometimes my husband and I have a competition to see who shops smarter. On my receipt it always says how much I saved from the original list price. Usually this number is more than how much I spent. So of course I explained to my dear husband that it’s almost like I make money when I shop! So, obviously, I won. 😉 // Badspade sunglasses // Striped Plunge Asymmetrical Belted Wrap-Style Dress SAME//Daniel Wellington watch SAME // Beau Satchelle yellow leather handbag // La Pinta white leather flats// Recently I…

    Back to school in Color with mywalit As a full time teacher this is the saddest time of year. It is back to school season again! Unfortunately our summer plans of road trips and new scenery were put on hold this year due to some family health issues.

Anyway, no matter how much you hate it or want to ignore it, I’m now having to think about getting back in my classroom. 😉 I plan to rearrange my closet this week to get it ready for my back…

    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…

    Asian Beauty Products You Need in Your Life

    Asian Beauty Products You Need in Your Life A few years ago I got the chance to stop in Seoul, South Korea for several days. We had been in China for my husband’s job and they asked him to go to a couple meetings in South Korea since we were “in the neighborhood.” Being from China I had heard a lot of amazing things about Asian makeup for a long time, especially Korean and Japanese makeup. But I have never tried anything from Korea. Before I went to Seoul, I did some research and, while my husband was busy with his meetings, I spent a couple days shopping for beauty…
