    Home phones

    Home phones E.T. do NOT phone home! I am on my vacation from 7/18-28, I will not be able to answer your comments but I still love to see them when I am back. 😉 When I moved to America I was surprised how many people still have a home phone land line. I’m one of those people. Well, I should say my husband is. I guess I understand the original reason.

But it is totally doable if you choose a faux leather material to reduce the heat. Here are some of my summer leather skirt looks: It’s hard to think of a more versatile piece than your favorite leather skirt. Just like you, it can be sweet, chic or rock the house with serious attitude! For summer, think light or bright colors by choosing blush or red to fire up that summer blaze. More of my look for…

    Chinese street style Shanghai June 2015

    Chinese street style Shanghai June 2015 My student told me I MUST watch the show called FRESH OFF THE BOAT. I watched a couple of episodes and kinda liked it.
