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 😊.

Must-Have Summer Items: Off The Shoulder Tops

Off the shoulders tops are one of my favorite summer pieces for this summer! And also most definitely must-have items for this summer!!

Ladies, we can wear the off the shoulder top to any type of occasion from a casual event or a formal occasion. All you need is an awesome pair of shoes to finish off the look! Doesn’t matter what kind….

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.

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.

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.

What’s Hot? Sriracha !! Is Sriracha Hot Sauce a new trend?

This is actually shocking to me to hear that Sriracha is NOW a new trend because this is not a new fad trend for me. Many Asian cuisines use Sriracha Hot Sauce in their recipes. This is not surprising. Sriracha is an Asian sauce that is used to spice things up like Pho, fried rice, noodles, Eggs, dumplings, or stir fries. You can find a bottle of Sriracha  in every Asian Households and Asian restaurants. Yes, this hot sauce taste banging! It’s trendy right now. Now I begin to see people wearing  “I love Sriracha” T-shirts and inspired SrirachaHalloween Costume.  There are new products coming out and many consumers are seeking new, unique, and spicy food. Many consumer products used Sriracha hot sauce flavor in their recipes and food. For example,  Subway launched its Sriracha Steak Melt and Lays launched its Sriracha flavor potato chips. I went on Google and found “The 17 greatest Sriracha Hot Sauce food receipes”. I will definitely try to make these food receipes. They look so yummy! I’m so hungry right now too lol
