Let's color the gloomy weather

This is an outfit for me to run errands, do grocery shopping, chill out with some unimportant (haha just kidding, don't freak out when you see me wearing this to meet you) 

Varsity-like jacket, I love the brown leather sleeves because it instantly makes the outfit look more chic.
Rocking the jacket with my spiky purse and my leather boots from Enzo <3

Gloomy weather sucks because it makes me lazy, so this is when I need some bright colors!
Many thanks to my friend Sammie who lent me such a cute beanie ;-) thanks Sam!


I used to stick with only one style before, which is classy, girly, pastel, pink, lace, blah blah blah blah... you know what kind of style I am talking about. (yawning)
Because I felt like other styles might not fit me that well or "mehhhh I hate other styles"

But then lately I do enjoy trying different kinds of pieces, being bold and creative.
Just because it is not your style, does not mean that you will look ugly with it.
Sometimes, its not about whether it is your style or not but how you put them together.

Anyway, its midnight, bed time, dream time.... 
gotta pass out in bed and be ready for Friday!

Girlfriends are the best valentine

Indeed, husbands are your lifetime partner and valentine, so are your girlfriends.
There are numerous reasons to explain why girlfriends are so important in life....

1. They know what you think the minute you raise your eyebrows.
2. They know how to translate your words to human languages when you are emotional.
3. They can tell you which dress suits you better.
4. They can be your shopping advisors.
5. They notice that you look better or fatter or thinner or.... whatever changes you have
6. They know how to comfort you more than anyone else, yes better than your boyfriend.
7. They always try to save you the last piece when you two share food.
8. They talk to you for hours when you are upset even though its 3am.
9. They remind you of your goal and they believe that you can.
10. They are happy for your success and they always want to help you to do better.

I can never thank my girls enough and they are one of my motivation to strive for better, 
I know that they have confidence in me, the last thing I want to do is to fail them.

There are so many people in the world and many people are still looking for friends whom they can share important moment with,
I have already found my people.
It is very hard to consider them as my friends or best friends because deep down I don't see them as my best friends but my sisters, my family.

Although none of them is here with me in the USA now, distance will never change my love for them.
If it does change, my love will only grow deeper or more.

This is Clara, without her I would not have been able to write in English.....
or my English could have been so bad to the point that I would end up hating myself.
Thank you Clara and I miss you <3

I dare you to walk in the cold

I know it is freezing but sometimes walking in the cold could be interesting....
hey, if you don't know how 32 degrees F or 0 degrees C feels, you can't fall in love with the sun 8-)
Faux leather and faux fur are my winter must-have items, because they are not from animals.
And, I am not a big fan of wearing animal skin, yak! Imagine wearing human skin? WOW!

One of the reasons that I love faux leather or  any shinny fabric is because of the blooming effect...
maybe that is because of my obsession with angelic image? hmmmm
you know how angels are always so shinny and they are always glowing? 
HAHAHA enough of my silliness :P

It's the end of February but you know the winter is not over yet, so please stay warm.
Love keeps you warm so stop hating (Well, in case you are) bye! <3

Love and Need

Yes I agree that women should be independent and men should be as well.
But how do you define independent besides being able to take care of yourself?
Although we can all be independent, there must be things that we need from somebody.

To be honest, we all can be alone when we have to and don't forget the fact that we are all single before we start a relationship. Therefore, what put two people together is not only love but also certain need.
Some people think that love doesn't need a reason but I think that love has to come from something.
Sometimes, need makes love more profound because one's need could be satisfied by another. 
We are all different people and our needs are all different; thus we want to be with the people we love and those people can satisfy our particular need.

Men don't understand why women can be annoyed of little things and why women would need them to do certain things yet they could actually do it on their own.
Yes, women could do everything on their own just like men do. 

However, when a woman makes silly request such as .... a kiss when she is annoyed, a hug when she is stressed, a cupcake when her sweet tooth is growing... etc etc etc
its because she needs her man's particular attention.
She doesn't do that to other guys or other people because she only wants him and he is the most suitable person who could put a smile on her face by doing silly things or trifles.
And because a woman's special needs could be satisfied by a man, her love for him goes deeper and he is the only one that she wants to be with.

If one day she doesn't ask for kisses and hugs, she doesn't need you to comfort her when she is upset because she can do it on her own, she doesn't get annoyed of little things, she doesn't care about morning kisses, she doesn't care about whether you have time for her .......
which means that she can live without your presence and you are no longer the special one who could put a smile on her face by doing little things anymore.

One day, if your kiss doesn't make her smile anymore, its the time that she should leave.
Because she loves you, every little thing you do for her makes her happy because she knows that you are doing it for her and only her at the moment.
She loves you and therefore you are needed.
However, when her needs are rejected or when you belittle her needs,
she will learn the lesson and stop asking.
One day she becomes able to cheer herself up and find another way to make herself feel better,
its the time that her man is not who she wants to be with.

Lets brighten the gloomy winter..... want some pink?

I know.. I know, everybody wears 
black, charcoal, dark brown, dark green, dark blue coat in the winter...
When you are waiting for you friends in the crowd and if you are short, 
then sometimes your friend might think that you are swamped.
If it has never happened to you, lucky! Well, it happened to me for several times.
Here it is, I am wearing magenta sweater, red down jacket and rusty pink bag...
do the dark eye circles bother you so much sometimes because of lacking sleep?
this is the time we need eyeliner and black frame glasses the most!

See how the blue polka dots collar toned down the bright pink tone?
Bazinga! its not a collar yet its a head band!
So you can tuck that or scarf inside the sweater to create a fake layer ;-)

Colors are fun because they brighten your day and they people who see you happy!
Happy Saturday and stay warm!

Cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery..... mmmmm.... its the taste of happiness!

Layers for the winter and....FOOD

Unlike people who live on the west coast or places that are warm year round, sometimes I can understand why people have to bundle up like a bear because ....
seriously, it is freezing in New York! 
there are still many ways to stay chic in the cold weather and 
it is all about how you manage the layers of your clothes.

Coat and pants - Zara,
Vest - Urban Outfitters
Sweater - U2 ladies
Shirt - Forever 21
Boots - ModCloth

Spot it! Cha An in St. Marks! One of my favorite places to hang out in NYC!
Legit Japanese mochi and it tastes ... mmmmm.... DELICIOUS!
Of course they have many other desserts too! 
Don't forget to bring cash when you go there because .... cash only :)

Last but not least, nice plum wine drink from Sake Bar Decibel 8-)

VVVVVValentines' Valentine's Day

So here it is Valentine's Day.....

Honestly, I am not a big fan of Valentines Day because for some reason, I just feel like its just another day to dress in red besides X'mas. I know, it is a sweet day for couples no matter what. However, going to a restaurant for the same food that they have and paying for triple times of the price? What a rip-off. For me, the most important thing on this day is to think about how much you two love each other and to be thankful. Sometimes, we tend to take things for granted when we have them for a long time. Anyway, I am not hating but I am just explaining my POV.

The weather is still cold in New York, and there is snow everywhere. Here is it my easy and effortless outfit..... purple bow with my urbanoutfitters coat.... and then the pink tote bag warmed up both. 

Stay warm!

P.S.) Feb 14 is my little sister's birthday! Happy Birthday sis, I love you mucho <3
