Shearling’s Back In Style (Was it Ever Out?)

Happy Snow Day!! I’m so glad I get to work from home today (I think my dogs are also)! I hope you all stay safe and warm 🙂 I can’t believe it’s still snowing in March, but I’m glad that Winter is almost over… or is it ?

So I’m usually not a big shearling fan and I’m not sure about you guys,but if I’m going to wear fur it may as well be Fox or Rabbit and not trimmed down sheep, am I right? However, shearling is super warm and it has a different texture than other animal furs so it is nice to switch it up now and then. Also one great point about shearling is not only is it great for cold days in the Winter  like today but it is also great for chilly days in the Spring or Fall (doesn’t look like you are over-doing it) where a fur jacket might look totally out of place (I made the mistake of wearing my fur coat out on a day that turned out to be not so cold and having to lug it around was THE WORST, not to mention I looked like John Snow minus the snow).

Nowadays there are so many brands carrying women’s shearling jackets especially shearling bombers and over-sized shearling coats. My dogs even have matching shearling jackets! The shearling works great for dogs because it is tightly packed and doesn’t get in the way since it is lot shorter than most other furs, normally the shearling goes on the inside to keep your puppy warm and then the leather is on the outside to shield them from the cold winds, perfect for short hair breeds like my chihuahuas. So, having said all that I had to get myself a shearling jacket to keep up with the trend 😉

 Oh BTW, I’m currently working on a project for Fall/Winter and I’m super excited to show you guys what it is when it’s ready 🙂 Stay tuned!

Stormy Stars

I’ve got this weird thing about the sky. I love how it changes colors, not just blue but almost every color you can create from a palette. Due to the bright lights in New York, it’s so hard to see stars. However, I remember seeing my first falling star when I was in Massachusetts. I want to say I made a wish, and it came true- but I forgot what wish I made.

Since I’m wearing a see-through shirt, I wore a comfy bralette underneath instead of a black top.  It’s summer and we should show some skin 😛 It might sound a bit crazy to wear leather in summer, but I don’t think leather shorts are that hot (well don’t go tanning with them). Actually one of my favorite pair of shorts is my leather boxers from Haute Hippie. I’ve worn them couple times in my blog. You can never go wrong with black & white 🙂

If you’re considering to get a Furla Candy bag, please be aware that it’s PVC, it gets dirty SUPER easy. Not just that, but it changes its shape easily too. Basically, I wouldn’t suggest getting one- unless you want a rain proof bag. And these A.Wangs are super comfy 🙂 I got them during spring sale.

Keep going on, no matter what you do, no matter how many times you screw up and think to yourself, “there’s no point to carry on,” no matter how many people tell you that you can’t do it- keep going. Don’t quit. Don’t quit, because a month from now you will be that much closer to your goal than you are now. Yesterday you said tomorrow. Make today count

To all the mommy out there, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

I know it’s not easy to raise me, but you’d always be there when I needed you…and you always were. I never really thought about what that meant till I got older and began to realize how often your time and energy were devoted to me. I look at you and see a walking miracle, because you’re so strong. Your unfailing love without limit, and your unselfishness makes me so grateful. I know that I wouldn’t be who I am today without your love. Mom I love you 🙂

Being a mom isn’t that easy, well especially being mine…I was a troublemaker when I was little. (or should I say I still am?) My mom and I wear the same sizes clothes and shoes, we would always share our things.  I remember my first time wearing heels, was borrowing my mom’s 3 inch tall Jimmy Choo. It was very classic, beige patent leather and I had to wear it to my choir recital.  My school was full of lawns, and obviously I wouldn’t know how to walk on grass.  Those Jimmy’s ended up as dirty as my rain boots, let along with scratch marks and torn leather.Thanks mom for letting me borrow and ruin your stuff all the time! I know I can be careless some times…most of the times, but I promise when I start earning big bucks I’ll get you whatever you want 🙂

“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.

NYR

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had an awesome start of the year. I make a new year resolution list every year, and last year one of them is being a blogger 🙂 so I would like to thank you all for supporting my blog for almost a year! I know it’s not as consistent and interesting as others, but I promise I’ll work on it this year. Thanks for all of your support and interesting ideas to make my blog grow 🙂

Speaking of New Year, I got myself a pair of new eyes! I had to wear glasses since 10 years old, and started wearing contacts around 13. After wearing contacts for a long period of  time, my eye doctor told me I shouldn’t be wearing contacts anymore,because my eyes are infected and the cornea are starting to damage, so he suggested to do LASIK. It was definitely the most scariest (not painful) moment I had so far, but it was so worth it. Now I wake up and see everything nice and clear 🙂 But I still have that old habit of stretching my arms to the nightstand to find my glasses before I open my eyes.

Be Thankful

I think that thanksgiving is much better than Christmas, because it’s the time when you buy Xmas presents for the ones you care and love.  I might have went a little bit cray cray on getting shoes,but girls can never have too many pairs of shoes. If you want to buy super discounted designer items, go check out Amuze.com. They don’t have up to date products, but they do carry some classic styles from time to time. I would also recommend going to ssense.com for a larger collection of designer items.

So this year instead of flying to LA and spend thanksgiving with my relatives, I decided to stay in New York and be with my dear friends.  I’m very thankful for my friends who are often here for me when I needed help or company.  I would like to take this opportunity to be thankful for the bad things that happened in my life, because they open my eyes to the good things that I wasn’t paying attention to, and it often teaches me a life lesson. Most of us live our lives not realizing how fortunate we are, and we would want more because we aren’t satisfied.  However we should learn to appreciate and be grateful for what we already have. 🙂

Forgive them anyway.  If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.  Be kind anyways.  If you are honest, people may cheat you.  Be honest anyway.  If you find happiness, people may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.  The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.  Do good anyway.  Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.  Give your best anyway.” -Mother Teresa

Diva & Her Puppy

I feel like a baa baa sheep wearing this big, fluffy shearling jacket. It looks like it’s a very warm jacket, but it really isn’t.  The weather in New York has been very odd lately- super cold  & windy one day, then hot the other day. Thanks to global warming!  When I was living in LA, people often put bling out collars and wear fancy tees for their little doggies. However in New York people put their dogs into their handbags, and shop in luxury department stores. It’s a complete different level of babying their puppies. Since Charcoal is a dude,I made him wear a shearling jacket so we could both be matchie matchie 🙂  (I’ve been getting a lot of comments saying that Charcoal looks like me… really? Charcoal=Me Me= Dog? Like mother like son I guess)

Turkey Day is coming up, which meant eat eat eat and shop shop shop!

A Little More Oomph

Major hot topics for this week are the Victoria Secret Show followed by the Isabel Marant H&M collection. First off, major thanks for Jen to line up in the middle of the cold night to get these pants for me <3 so blessed to have good friends around me  🙂 If you guys are planning to skip the queue, and order the collection online,make sure you check the sizing chart. I got size 2 for the bottom, and I had to jump, wiggle, hold my breathe, and suck in my tummy to fit into them. I usually wear size 0, but I guess either I’ve gained too much or they run small. ( Fingers crossed I didn’t gain that much weight, thanksgiving hasn’t even arrived yet!)

Speaking of which, OH MY GWAAAD,those angels were SO HOT! It’s very fascinating to see how these women are so powerful, and not only they are gorgeous on the outside, but they are also beautiful in the inside. I can’t wait to watch the show on Dec 10.  It’ll definitely be a big motivation for working out after feasting for turkey day. As of now, stay warm and lets pray for Philippines.

“To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch…to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!” by Ralph Waldo Emerson
