Kung Hei Fat Choi 2014

Wearing something red for the Chinese New Year:)

Some pics taken with my phone during New Year's Eve dinner last night:

Wishing all of you much luck and happiness with this new year:)


Just slap me silly if I ever complain about the hot summer, kay?

New in...meant to be

I've been looking for a camel coat for awhile, and I finally found this. I may be slightly too excited.  The best thing: I got it on sale....booyaaaaa!

Most people would wear this outfit with a less casual look, but not me....

Have you gotten any items from the end-of-season sale?

Waiting for spring to come....

This outfit is such a great camouflage during winter. As someone told me, I blended in with the snow. That's always great especially if you're trying to avoid someone...bwahaha!

Do you wear white during winter?

All covered up

This winter is turning out to be one of the coldest we've had in years, and there's really not much we can do about it except to dress in warm clothes, like this sweater and thick leggings.

How's your Tuesday going so far?

Currently loving #14

Some stuff I've been loving or have been impressed with lately....

1) House of Hades by Rick Riordan
This is the fourth book in The Heroes of Olympus series. I can't recommend Rick Riordan's work highly enough. If you love the Percy Jackson series, then this series is a must-read.

2) Pure Eyeshadow Cube
My eldest sister gave me a bunch of these shadows awhile back, and I love them. I use this shade for an everyday simple look.

 3) Laura Mercier Universal Loose Setting Powder
I got a sample of this, and as soon as I'm done with it, I'm getting the full-sized version. This powder feels sooooo good on the skin, sets the makeup well, and it doesn't break me out. Yay!

4) Knitting I learned to knit in high school, and have been doing it on and off since. My knitting mojo has been back with a vengeance lately. I was able to give some knitted gifts away this past Christmas, and these are stuff I've done most recently for my daughter (who seems to really like them:)…

Over and over

I think leather jackets are such a great staple in a wardrobe. I don't have a lot of them, so they're pretty much on heavy rotation, especially during winter.

Thank God it's Friday, y'all!!! Any plans this weekend?

Influence: Nicole Richie

I've always loved Nicole Richie's "bohemian chic" style, but she's been really bringing it on lately in my opinion. She's another one of those people I wish I can swap wardrobe with:)

 Are you a fan of her look?

Cole Porter is always right.

I love Paris in the spring time
I love Paris in the fall
I love Paris in the summer when it sizzles
I love Paris in the winter when it drizzles...

- Cole Porter, I Love Paris

Have a great start to the week, everyone:)

Schlepping around

A big high-five to all the women out there I see/saw walking around in heeled shoes in this crazy winter weather we're having. I'm in awe, y'all, because my outfit below is pretty much all I can wear when it's snowing and freezing outside.

What is your usual winter outfit like?

Deep freeze

So many are/were experiencing record-breaking bitter cold temperatures here in North America. Let us all hope we don't see -40 (celsius) wind chills in a while....

Hope you are all warm and cozy wherever you may be. Have you been affected by this crazy winter weather?

Obsession #27

This jacket...I'm just speechless....
What's your obsession for the new year, guys?
