Mikasa Beauty Brushes

A few months back I got an email from the marketing director at Mikasa Beauty. They recognized that I have a strong social media platform and wanted to create a collaboration with me to introduce Mikasa Beauty Collection. Of course I couldn’t say no to them. I decided to purchases this Mikasa techni brushes set, it comes with four brushes. They even sent me a free lemon drop makeup blender (Mikasa 100)! I recommend you ladies try out these brushes!


aI’m glad Mikasa Beauty connected with me because I saw these type of brushes everywhere on social media and I was dying to buy some! I absolutely love love love these brushes! These techni brushes are made 100% synthetic fibers that create ultra-dense and soft brushes. I’ve been learning how to do facial contours. These techni brushes are perfect for applying and blending both powder and cream products to all areas to the face.

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 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!

My Newest Blooming Obsession…Midi Skirts!!!

(Photos from Pinterest)

Say “bye” Winter and “hello” Spring!  Other than the sun, the warmth, the flowers, my next favorite thing is the latest trends and styles. There are tons of wear-able looks for Spring 2016 that I am fascinated with. My newest blooming obsession is the “Midi skirt” trend. Midi skirts are the perfect “modest” or “elegant” addition to every spring wardrobes for any occasion. They come in many different styles, colors, lengths, and designs. These skirts can be flattering to any body type, however proportions are the main key in order to master the right silhouette for your body type. This is a must- have item for this spring! I think every girl should own  at least one midi skirt in their closet! I can guarantee if any one who wears this type of garment will definitely standout and  you sure will be a show stopper!


 

Here are my favorite styling inspirations by others:

Here is my own styling creation:

I bought my skirt at Forever 21 for $27.99! The style is called “Black Mist Twist Midi Skirt”. This skirt has an A-line shape with a shadow striped-embroidered overlay in a pleated design. It has a concealed back zipper, partially lined. The skirt is very lightweight and so comfortable to wear! This silhouette is the perfect fit to my body and height. I bought my white cropped top from Windsor Store for $15. The top has cut-outs from the sides and also a deep-plunging neckline. I made sure that I kept it sexy and feminine. I completed my outfit with a bold pair of Steve Madden platform pumps and chose my own accessories.

Here are a few easy styling tips to help you master proportions, choose your accessories, and find the right silhouette for your body type:

  • Make sure you balance your look by playing with proportions
  • keep it classy and feminine
  • Complete with detailed/flashy shoes (ankle-straps, pumps, platforms pumps)
  • Play with bold colors
  • Choose your accessories
  • Find the right silhouette for your body shape (petite body = a more fitted style with higher waistline)
  • Aim for stripes, prints or dramatic embellishments
  • Pair up with a loose blouse or cropped top ( you can tuck in your blouse to highlight your waistline)
  • play with layers
  • lastly, HAVE FUN!!!

Hello Everyone!!!! I’m BACKKKK!!!!

I know I know It has been a while since a wrote my latest post. I have to be honest I had a couple of step backs and also was going through some personal thing over the last year, which is why I haven’t been inspired to write. Don’t worry I am back now, since today is Chinese and Vietnamese New Year, why not start over? I want to move forward with my life and  start over with a fresh clean plate. My goal for this year is to discover and create new memories & adventures and find more muses and inspirations to write about.

I decided to do a collaboration with a good friend of mine, Kahlil Martinez. He is a terrific photographer. I’m always amazed and inspired by his work and talent.  We decided to set up a quick photo shoot something fashion based to overlap with my blog site. So we decided to do a city shoot in Downtown Hartford around Pratt street and City Hall. The inspirations behind the shoot was to take place somewhere outside in the city, in a urban setting and for my part was to pick out a few of outfits and style to showcase something relating to the “beginning of the winter season for fashion trend”. We wanted to stay with a solid theme so that I can write a few blogs about this shoot.

 I live in the Northeast and  sometime it can be difficult for me to find outfits to wear without freezing my butt when I walk outside in the freezing air and snow. There was a point of time where I used to get tired of seeing other girls wear tight-fitting crop tops and tight pencil skirts with slits. I want to show other fashion divas that there are other outfit options to look chic and sexy instead of wearing tight and revealing crop tops and pencil skirts with slits. So I decided to selected a couple of outfits to show ways how to make comfy and loose clothing can look chic and sexy for a perfect outfit of the day look. I want to give the idea that I can look fashionable or trendy without having to put a lot of thoughts and efforts because we were shooting around Hartford and the shoot fits with the theme. So I picked out a pair of my light-washed destroyed boyfriend jeans, my must have leopard faux fur vest, a white over-sized sweater, my boyfriend flannel button up, and a pair of my black suede zipped up booties. I decided to paired my red envelope clutch and neon clutch with my outfits and accessories with my gold bracelets and necklace and my gold Michael Kors watch.

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.


BBQ combination


bulgogi

Bulgogi (Thin Slices of Beef Marinated with Special House Soy Sauce)


galbi 

GALBI JUMULLUCK (Boneless Beef Short Ribs Marinated with Special House Soy Sauce)


pork belly

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!
