    Everyone Needs a Break Sometimes

    I have been so incredibly blessed with all of the amazing things I’ve been able to do since starting this blog five years ago. What began as a fashion and beauty blog transformed into a blog about living with the cancer of my late husband that then transformed again into a blog about being a grieving widow that continued to evolve into me learning to live life to the fullest. Now, I want to take everything I’ve learned over the years of living and learning and help others learn to do the same. This Monday I will be traveling to Palm Springs, California to participate in two weeks of training…

    What to Do This Labor Day Weekend In Michigan

    Labor Day weekend is often thought of as the last hurrah of summer– *tear*– so let’s be sure to enjoy our three day weekend to its absolute fullest! Of course, you all know how much I LOVE to travel to exciting new exotic destinations for another stamp on my passport, but I think we all take for granted how many amazing things are going on right in our own backyards. I’m always on the hunt for the next big thing not only in fashion, but in travel as well. New York and LA have held the crown as the glittering American cities we all long to visit and live in,…

    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. A few months ago, I had the chance to stay at the fantastic Four Seasons Hotel in Houston for two nights. This Four Seasons hotel is the luxury 5-star hotel in the heart of downtown Houston. 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…

    See The World || Shanghai China #1

    1999, I ran away from my hometown Anshan, China, to seek a new life in Shanghai. You can read the reason and what my life was in Shanghai here “About Me”. I lived in Shanghai for 9 years. From an almost homeless person to a successful business owner, Shanghai was the place that I have grown into an independent women. I also met my late husband in Shanghai, so it is really a very special place for me. This early February, I flight back to Shanghai to visit my friends. If you have been following me on my Instagram stories, you probably have already seen a lot of fun time…
