We had our family vacation when the kids ended their school year.  Once a year, we tried to have a getaway with our parents and my sister’s family so that the boys can play with their cousins and grandparents can enjoy quality times with the grandchildren.

Polka Dot and Sunflower

7.31.2017

“There is never a wrong time for a polka dot.”- Marc Jacobs.

I felt like a French girl.  This H&M’s dress could be last season.  I got it on the clearance rack in store for $10.  This pair of platform sandals I picked up at Target for $17.99.  Neither of them are available online, but you can find similar styles ranging in prices at the end of this post.

Summer Sales

7.26.2017

You probably get tired by now if you hear another word about Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  I know I am.  There are so many good sales and my wallets aren’t ready.  From now on until mid-August if you have signed up for your favorite retailers, you will hear from them about additional Sale on Sale.  For example Madewell just ran an additional 30% off on sale items and right at this minute J.crew is running an additional 60% off using code “Wednesday”.  Beware though, something like this most of the time means they are “final sale”.

Fresh Floral

7.24.2017

I stumbled into this app called Asana Rebel.  It is a yoga app.  What I like about it is it motivates me to resume my exercise regimens.  First excercise of the day is only 5 minutes.  If I wake up early enough, I can do another 15 minutes flow.  I have been on and off with my exercise.  With this app, I am determined to have more yoga days ahead.

I do my exercise whenever I find times {sometimes even in the bathroom stall at work-only if it has fresh air :)}  I take stairs whenever I can.  I do some stand up crunches at work’s stairways. Read More

City Playground

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

7.21.2017

I could not get my kids into the first session of summer camp.  I felt bad for leaving them at home doing nothing.  They keep asking when they see me in the morning if it is my day off.  I am taking Fridays off for the next three week to hang out.

Today, I will take all four into town to have lunch with Dad.  I plan to take them to the city playground and the frog pond to play with water to cool off.  We will head to the Children’s Museum at 5pm to take an advantage of the discount entrance, $1 per person sponsored by Target.

Keep Your Cool 😎

7.20.2017

How do you keep cool in the summer?  I love hats, especially wide-brimmed straw hats.  When the summer is over, I could have ruined one or two.

I am in love with this sturdy, high quality hat that I got online from Diani Living.  I think this will last me for a while.

Quick Styling Tips

7.12.2017

Long before, I used to change my outfits at least one or twice times in the morning before leaving for work even though I put out an outfit the night before.  I had a pleasure playing fashion sessions with things in my closet.  Not nowadays, it is all about Go-and-Go.   I no longer plan out my outfit because I know my mood would change by the morning.  And today, this website is my fashion playground🙀.  Here are my tips for quick dressings, see if you agree with me:
