Do you have a blog crush? I recently came across JooJoo's blog and fell in love with her drawings and jewelry making. I spent countless hours looking through her blog and was at aweeee with everything. She is such an amazing artist and I am a bit jealous of her creativity! Follow her blog here ! and love her interview with etsy Using watercolor porcelain to hold all her jewelry, brilliant idea! Mommy and baby Koala, made with polymer clay and acrylic colors for paint. Last week I came across these handmade amigurumi and miniature teddy bears and plush toys as I was looking through google images for teddy bear photoshoot ideas. Cute overload all in one day! Check out her Etsy shop for more of her work. Happy Tuesday!

Lookbook } Banana Jacket

Image
Banana jacket from Hubby 8 years ago when we dated. Black jacket is simply just elegant and classic in my book. Still loving it today.  I don't think these boots goes well with this outfit, oh well, nothing wrong with experimenting ;) When Kaylee was about 5-6 Months, I lost a lot of hair! I was shredding so much I thought something was wrong me, to find out that it's normal to shred after having a baby. Whew! In need to find a stylish by the end of this month! Look to those baby hair! jacket:: Banana Republic purse:: MK :glasses:: MK dress:: HM shoes:: Report One thing I love about blogging is that when your a mother and have a newborn baby, you tend to let yourself go and forget to take care of yourself. Having this blog, not only I met a lot of wonderful people from all over the world, but I also get to experiment with my clothes, old and new. Who say affordable clothes can't be stylish? Thank you everyone for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful weekend

Happy Lunar New Year

Image
For those who do celebrate the Chinese/Vietnamese New Year, Happy New Year (Chúc Mừng Năm Mới, Kung Hei Fat Choy) I have been cleaning for the past few days so that we will have good fortune and health for the upcoming year! We are not allow to clean or do laundry on the day of or else the whole year will come with misfortunes and hardships. Asians are so superstitious, we try to avoid things so badluck does not find us and we follow it greatly around the Lunar New Year. :D Over the weekend, we welcome the year of the Dragon with good tradition food and surrounded ourselves with close friends. Here are some interesting Lunar New Year superstitions I gather  online : Stay positive and do not wish ill on others. We should welcome the Lunar New Year with positive energy. Many people believe that on New Year's Day washing hair is not allowed because it would have washed away good luck for the New Year. Wearing new clothes represent the new that you want to be bringing

{Blazer: HM Sweater: AE Jeans: F21 purse: COACH Shoes: GIANNI BINI Necklace: FRANCESCA'S COLLECTIONS bracelets: FRANCESCA'S COLLECTIONS & F21} Stole this over at IHOD blog: "The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years." ~ Audrey Hepburn This is what I have been sporting to work lately, statement necklace, blazer and assortment of bracelets. This year I am hoping to wear more heels, every since I had Kaylee I have been wearing a lot of flats. Need to "learn" how to walk in heels all over again, Cheers to walking tall this year! Random fact of the day: The last time I got

Thrifted

I am not much of a thrifter simply because I never have much luck finding anything unique or cool there. Hubby and I decided to go on Saturday and it was such a fun experience looking through all the vintage and decorations. I love browsing through the accessories and ended up buying couple necklaces that I am now swoon over! We went to CHKD and I love the thought of giving back to the kids as we buy second hand items. Do you thrift? Kaylee first time thrifting Black pearl necklace I found at the thrift store, the quality of the black pearl is really nice Love her shoes leggings! {dress: Old Navy cardigan: LOFT purse: Michael Kors Boots: Steve Madden Necklace: Thrifted bracelets: Francesca's Collections &F21 } "the true beauty of a woman is reflected in her soul."
