    Travel Fashion || What to Wear to A Winery in The Winter

    This past weekend, I went on a wine tasting trip to celebrate my birthday in Traverse City, Michigan and had a great time. I planned to write about what to wear to a winery in the spring. But the weather there was still stuck in winter.;) Have you ever been a wine tasting trip during the winter? It’s easy to pack for a winery in the summer (flowy dress, sunhat and sandals of course!) but in the cold winter, it can be trickier! Since it was only two nights stay and a four-hour drive each way, I packed really light. My main focus was on being comfortable and stylish. It…

    Travel Fashion || The Must Have Patched Denim Jacket

    A playful patched denim jacket, is the must-have in my travel wardrobe! If you are not that into the fun patches, just a plain denim jacket will do the same trick. In my last Travel Fashion post, I have talked about the cool dusters. Compare this with a flowy duster, both are used as a layering piece, and a must have in my closet. Denim jackets are not only versatile, but they go with just about anything. They are particularly useful to keep you warm and is exactly why you need one when you are on the road! Why Denim Jacket for travel? When we travel, most people tend to…

    What To Wear and Pack To A Beach Picnic With Family

    A few weekends ago, my step-daughter, her fiancé and I decided to have a family beach picnic. I haven’t done any beach picnic before. I bought a very cute picnic basket a few months ago that I have never used. So this is the perfect time to try something new. What to Pack: 1.

    What to Wear to a Hot Air Balloon Festival

    Road trips, outdoor concerts, pool parties, camping, and all kinds of festivals are the best part of summer for me. In the small town of Howell, Michigan, that I first lived when I moved to America, there’s an annual hot air balloon festival every June. It’s called the Michigan Challenge Balloonfest. It’s been our family’s go-to festival for years. Every year, there are more than 50 spectacular balloons that will fill the Southeast Michigan skies with color. The Michigan Challenge is not only a ballooning competition. It’s a weekend filled with excitement, entertainment, and fun. This annual event attracts more than 100,000 spectators. The colorful balloons aren’t the only attraction.…

    The Global Day of Discovery Dinner at Renaissance Toledo Downtown Hotel

    Last Tuesday, 6/5, I was one of the lucky guests invited to this amazing #dayofdiscovery global event held at Renaissance Toledo Downtown Hotel. This was its 7th annual Global Day of Discovery at Renaissance Hotels, part of Marriott International, Inc. This year, four hotels were chosen: Bali, Paris, New York City, and Toledo. Being a Michigander, I’m only about 1.5 hours away from Toledo, Ohio. Yet, I only know very little about Toledo. In fact, I’m familiar with just three aspects of the city: Toledo Zoo, Toledo Mud Hens baseball team, and Tony Packo’s hot dogs. I’m glad I had the chance to visit for #dayofdiscovery because the event opened…

    Home Away from Home, Four Seasons Hotel in Houston

    When I think about Luxury hotels, Four Seasons are always the first ones that come to my mind.

Not only does it feature a relaxing spa and fitness center complete with pools, it’s an amazing location for any social gathering, and includes fine dining options such as authentic Italian cuisine, small plates and the finest wines. It is tucked away in the thriving business district. The Four Seasons Houston Hotel features 404 well-appointed guest…

    Staycation At MotorCity Casino Hotel In Detroit

    This post is partnered with MotorCity Casino Hotel. It seems like everyone knows how much I love travel. It might be less obvious that I am partial to the odd gamble here and there. The Jack Casino online is amongst my favorites. Recently I have received the same question many times: “Where are you going next?” Lol! Well, probably a road trip in June to Charleston, SC, August to Tuscany, Italy and Province, France, October to Athens and Santorini, Greece and November will be to LA. But in between those trips, I probably will take some short trips, or staycations just like I did last week at the fabulous MotorCity…

    If you have been following me on my Instagram, you probably already have seen a lot of IG stories and lives about my Europe trip from last month. In this post, I will only focus on what to wear to London in Late March. I didn’t pack a coat because I was just so tired of winter in Michigan and the weather forecast said it will be 50s most of the days when I was there. But obviously it was not the case. The temperatures turned out so much colder than I hoped. Every time when I travel to a big city, I always pack natural colors clothing but statement…
