New Changes in my life! Plus I got promoted!


Hello everyone!

Fall is finally here! It’s the seasons of layering.  I’m sorry I haven’t been posting as much lately. I’ve been super busy. I have experienced many changes in my life within the last two months. My sister got engaged and I got promoted!




My sister recently got engaged! I am so happy for my sister and my brother-in-law  to be. I’ve been helping them plan their wedding. And don’t worry I’ll definitely  write posts later on this year about all the wedding details and planning from venues, color schemes, the food tasting, all of the DIY projects, and etc.



Another recent change that had occurred was I got promoted . In the last two weeks I’ve been adjusting into my new role as  an assistant manager at work. I am the new assistant manager for the Individualist, Via.C, & Encore department ( women’s apparels) at Nordstrom Westfarms in Connecticut.

I was a regular salesperson in the Men’s department. There wasn’t any growth opportunity for me to move up.  Everything seemed simple. The responsibilities and tasks were pretty easy to juggle with. I desperately needed change! I wanted to challenge myself to take on more responsibilities.

 I’m looking forward to be working in women’s apparels! I’m very excited! It will be a whole new world for me since I’ll be working with more women. Which I don’t mind it at all, I love a great challenging experience! I believe I will be a good leade and role model for my team. I just have to remember to be good to myself 😊.

The “Little Black Dress”


 It’s Friday everyone! I have a quick styling tip for you ladies for tonight! I’m pretty sure some of you ladies will have last minute plans for tonight and probably have no ideas what to wear. If you can’t find anything in your closet, then a “little black dress” is always a great option to wear!!!

3 quick tips of complete your whole look:

1.)  Add accessories to your outfit

2.) Makeup tip: Add a bold lip color on your lips and to enhance the eyes you can add a classic wing eyeliner.

Lastly 3.) let your hair down!! And remember to be fierce ladies!!!

Here is my “little black dress” inspiration:

The Perfect Coffee to Cocktail Ensemble: adding AUrate New York on the Plate!

I believe accessories and jewelry plays a major role when it comes to completing my whole outfit. The pieces can either make or break my wardrobe! For this summer, I found my next new obsession! I am in love with contemporary gold jewelries! If anyone is interested in affordable real gold jewelry, I know where to find some! I recently discovered a hip new jewelry brand that is known for their affordable contemporary gold jewelry…This brand is called AUrate New York!

I have to say AUrate has a beautiful collections of gold necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings. Their brand is about real women at different phases and moments in their lives. The founders designed three lines dedicating to three different types of girls or even the same girl during different times of the day, depending on what we want to think about it. The statement line is design for the fashion-forward type of girl who is either going out to a gala or some other social gatherings. The second line is the understated line, which is created for a girl who dresses very poised and very “Plain Jane”. And then the core line, which is the day to night. This core line is made for a girl who is constantly busy and on the go and will most likely wears her outfit from day to night. I am very inspired by these two bright women. They have introduce us a new way to think about jewelry, it’s a smarter model for a new generation of women. They had discovered fine jewelry at a fair price!


Utskrift

Who is AUrate New York?

AUrate New York offer contemporary yet timeless real gold jewelry made right here in New York City! “This trendy brand re-writes the rules by offering quality products at an honest price and empowering our community to give back to the world.”

Seoul BBQ & Sushi Cuisine – New Britain, CT

Yesterday I went out to dinner with my sister and her co-workers at Seoul BBQ & Sushi. We were craving for Korean barbecue. This is one of my favorite restaurants, hands down! SeouI BBq & Sushi offers some of the most authentic, mouthwatering,and one of a kind Korean dishes and sushi in all of Connecticut. This  place is clean and has nice interior designs. It was very comfortable because its very spacious. We can reserve private rooms, good for parties. My first experience eating Korean barbecue was at this particular spot. Seoul BBQ & Sushi is the winner of “2014 Best Korean Restaurants according to Hartford Courant. in  I thought this place was heaven to me!

We had a party of 6.  The restaurant pretty busy, so we made reservations. We were seated pretty quickly. They have a pretty big menu that can be a little overwhelming with all the authentic Korean food especially if you’ve never had it before.

SAM-GYUP-SAL (Thin slices of pork belly without Marination Served with Salt & Sesame Oil Sauce on the Side)

We ordered the BBQ combination B. This combo is suppose to serve 4 people but it was definitely enough for the Six of us. We had the combination A + galbi (marinated beef short ribs), bulgogi (marinated thin slices of beef), and Sam-gyup-sal (thin slices of pork belly without marinade). This combino came with a variety of 14 different small plates, spicy tofu soup, steamed egg casserole, an egg pancake, and 4 small bowls of rice. We had to order 2 more bowls of rice because they wasn’t enough for everyone. The small dishes were very tasty even and I seemed to enjoy of the small side dishes . We to order more side dishes when we ran out. The grill is right in front of you on your table and when they bring the meat over they throw some on for you to start you off and then they leave you to finish grilling the meat. The meat does cook fairly quick on the hot grill especially the thinner meats so keep an eye on it! They also give you two different sauces to try with the meats. Nom Nom delicious!



Seoul BB & Sushi also offers Sushi and sashimi, but I didn’t order sushi. We had plenty to eat! I swear I had a food coma after eating here.

They don’t have desserts. But the waiters brought us over six cups of Korean juice, which tasted like sugar cane juice and rice in them. The juice wasn’t too bad and was actually quite refreshing.

The waiters and staffs were great, very accommodating, and kept coming back to make sure we didn’t need anything else. They were all so cheerful too which was nice to see it really added to the experience in my opinion. I would totally recommend everyone to go!

This restaurant can be pricey because there will be a 18% gratuity rate for groups of 6 or more into the bill. Remember to spent and eat wisely!

Below are a couple of my mood boards or style boards for a living room, emphasizing in contemporary designs, I chose my favorite “living room item to used as the centerpiece of my style and then chose “accessories to complete my look:

ALL White -Out

#1 White Monocro couch, #5 White Savina Lounge Chair, & #3 Caterina glass coffee table are the center piece for this style of contemporary Design. My inspiriation behind this interior design is having most of the furniture to be all white, grey,dark grey and silver color scheme. There is something about having the room all white make everything look so chic and sophisticated, but yet so simple. The accessories will totally transform the living room. The accessories that I chose were #17 suitcase shelves, #16 or #15 rug, #4 ceiling lamp, #8 crystal vase, #7 Eko Lamp, #4 Caravagio mirror, #10 Gabriela pillow, #11Fabiana pillow or #12 & #13 pillow.

bohemian inspired

This interior design style is inspire by one my friend. She has one of the most trendiest style, specializing in Bohemian style. This style is effortless, colorful and fun! The center piece for this living room design is #1 White Phantom couch and # 2 Caterina glass coffee table. Two of my favorite accessories pieces in this design would be #6 red colorful-beading stool and #11 red colorful-beading pillow. These accessories pieces add character to this living room set. For example  a pair of red pumps would totally transform to your all-black outfit.

gray and black inspired

This is grey & black contemporary inspired design for a living room. It’s simple, but chic and sophisticated. With a pop of mustard yellow and teal will bring the room back to life. This type of style is very masculine, so even a male can use this contemporary design. The center pieces for this look are #1Black Monacro couch and #4 Caterine glass coffee table.

The center pieces for this look are #1 White Phantom Couch and #2 Caterina Glass coffee table.

monocromatic style

This is a monochromatic inspired look is a mature and masculine design that can be suit for a man or a woman. There is something so chic and sophisticated about having the color schemes for the living room to be a combination of black, gray, and white. I tried to keep everything monochromatic or in the same color scheme. This design is a upscale and high-in lifestyle. The centerpieces for this look are #1 grey Bergamo couch and #2 Caterina glass coffee table.
