we've come a long way since that day, and we will never look back

It's been so busy since Lunar New Year has arrived. Cleaning and cooking and more cleaning. SO TIRED. But I am excited to eat all the Tet(Vietnamese for New Year) food. All this food for some reason only comes once a year, esp my aunt's homemade banh chung. Nom nom! But it does make me sad a bit since I am too old to receive li xi (red envelopes). =( So I opted to give out li xi despite the tradition that you are supposed be married to hand it out. And it's definitely strange that this year Tet fell in January.

Anyhow, I am so ready for this spring/summer to arrive. I wasn't able to find any cute clothing for winter, therefore I keep purchasing clothing for the upcoming seasons. It hasn't been much of a "cold" winter until recently. Boo! Here's a post of what I look forward to be wearing soon sans jacket of course.

F21 top, Sanctuary denim, Dolce Vita heels
Marc Jacobs watch, JewelMint Golden Goose bracelet


Loreal Infallible Cream Shadows

Currently playing around with Loreal's Infallible Cream Shadows. I love them so far and I will definitely collect all the colors. For a more in depth review check out my Tumblr.


My babies

Meet Keno, a four year old Shih Tzu and Nala, a two year old Pomeranian. I love them! 


I'mma do it for the Bay, okay -- YOLO

We headed to the city recently. I tried learn how to utilize my camera (Canon S95) before upgrading to a Canon Mark 5D, my dream camera. I told a friend about this camera and even HE ended up getting it before me. SADFACE. I am sure he'll allow me to borrow it sometimes ;] First stop was Treasure Island with it's breathtaking view of San Francisco and the Bay Bridge. Here's what I wore! Excuse the clarity of the images, there was a slight fog. What's new right?

H&M blazer, Free People Lovely Blooms Vest, F21 striped shirt, Joe's denim, ShoeMint Jolly
Jewel Mint Poseidon necklace & Zip bracelet, Nordstroms leaf bracelet, Michael Kors watch


Tea for Two

Tea with the bestie last month. We went to Secret Garden in the city. We ordered two teas and the Bedford's Delight. Per usual, each platter had the scones on the bottom tray, sandwiches on the second tray and the desserts on the top tray. It was a beautiful day so we pulled over on a random street and took pictures. I don't know how some people do it outside the comforts of their own home. Lol soo many bystanders.

take a shot for me-- goodbye 2011

It's been relatively busy. Family and friends visited during the holidays, thank goodness I was able to take some days off to keep them company. My New Year's was completely unplanned. We did not purchase tickets anywhere, and those places free were ridiculously crowded. Somehow after our dinner at Wine Cellar in Los Gatos and our FAILED attempt to bar hop, we ended up at my house for some drinks and countdown. Here's what I wore for New Year's Eve. I would've taken pictures at home, but per usual, I got ready too late and rushed out of the house to make it in time for our reservations.

Aritzia lace tank, Free People eyelet shorts, BCBGeneration 'Helara' pump, Baublebar bracelet
For some odd reason the flash would not turn on automatically during my solo pic and coat on during the picture below, it was FREEZING.
