(Vogue Japan Sept 2013)

You might not believe it, but I was once blond...very very long time ago...needless to say, it didn't suit me very well!  However, I have always wanted to have a tattoo.  My only problem, maybe like many who hesitated getting some permanent ink on their body, is not knowing which design to choose.  And if failed, what kind of damage-control plan?

Most people would suggest just elaborating on or around the existing tattoo.  I would never be able to pull to off this full body art look...not even with my baddest attitude (as much as I try)...so to this day, I'm still searching for the right design.  Any suggestions?

OBSESSION DU JOUR - Camouflage Flats

(Valentino Camouflage Sneakers)

(Christian Louboutin Rollerboy Spikes in Camouflage Pony)

(Prada Sports Cameo Sneakers)

I've always loved camouflage print and army/military looks in general.  And lately, found myself lusting over menswear shoes again...how can I not be when flats can look as cool as these!  Now, will hubby go for any of these?!?  I think the Louboutin will be a harder sell...

I know there are bigger problems in life (earthquakes, starving kids and life threatening diseases to name a few), but I can't help myself from being annoyed by all the bruises on my legs...so ugly!  And they are mirror bruises resulting from the same bench in my room I keep on bumping into...annoyed!!!

I guess my only consolation is that bruises are better than mosquito bites (which are even more annoying).  Ok, I'm not venting.  Off to a lunch date with hubby and shopping for my son's birthday party this weekend!

JEWELRY BOX - Ana Khouri

(18K Gold Leaf Handcuff)

(18K White Gold Diamond Arachnid Earrings)

(18K Blackened Gold Diamond Wing Earrings)

(18K Rose Gold Diamond Stem Handcuff)

I instantly fell in love with Ana Khouri's handcrafted art deco inspired fine jewelry.  These pieces are so   made of ethically conscious 18K gold and precious stones sure make a refined yet cool statement to any outfit...especially the gold leaf handcuff...how pretty!

Any one of you want to make it to my jewelry box?  There's always room for more!

Over the weekend...


What to do while the kids are napping in the afternoon?  Mommies go wild (ok, not that wild...) and became Chinese Beyonce!!!

Hey, it was only 88 RMB (less than $15) for all 4hrs of signing, goofing around and hibernating from the heat!  Can't beat that...not even in the land of karaoke's!

SNEAK PEAK - Isabel Marant X H&M

I CAN'T WAIT!!!  Can you see the rows of samples in the background?

OUTFIT DU JOUR - Rendition

Inspired by the new season of The Voice of China (中国好声音), a few girlfriends and I decided  to spend our afternoon in a well air-conditioned KTV room 
and render to our inner rockstar! 

For those who understands Chinese, I highly recommend to watch the first season and follow the second...
there are some amazing talents!  It's definitely not the first singing competition show (hello?!? we invented Karaoke)
ever but seriously the best performing show!

I need...

(Katikies Hotel In Santorini)

...a vacation from this heat!  It's been 35°C plus 100% humidity (which feels more like 48°C according to the weather network!!!) since I got back to Shanghai a month ago...literally impossible to leave any room without A/C!

When will it get cooler?!?
