Can you tell I got a slight tan from my Mexico trip?  I didn’t even stay out in the sun for that long.  So sad that summer is almost over, but I’m actually looking forward to fall shopping.  Have a great weekend!

Paris, France (Part Two)

Bonjour!  We’re continuing on our food adventures.  Food has always been an important part of our travels.  Seriously, before our trip, we scoured the internet for places to try.  My sister’s friends are a great help too.  Our emails were bombarded with “must-try spots” in Paris.  We tried most of the places and they did not disappoint.  My sister claimed that we had not experienced any bad meals except the ones she ate without me.  I guess we’re meant as a team. :)

When I need to buy a dress for a special occasion, BCBGMaxazria is the first brand that comes to my mind.  BCBGMaxazria is synonymous with elegance and glamour.  I rarely pay full price for my dresses, but instead I shop at their outlet in New Westminster.  They have a great selection and their cocktail dresses are the best!  And in case you’re wondering, Max & Cleo is a division of BCBGMaxazria.

Paris, France (Part One)

Hi friends!  If you’re a long time reader of my blog, you’ll know that I went to Europe last month with my sister (aka as my partner in crime).  Oh man, we’re still reminiscing over the delicious food we had on this trip.

Our first stop was Paris.  This is my second visit to Paris.  I went 11 years ago with my husband, but it was a totally different experience.  We went on a 15-day Europe tour and we barely get to see the city.  Needless to say, this time around it was a lot more FUN!

I honestly don’t know how to write this post because it really revolves one subject – FOOD!  My sister’s intention was to wine and dine in the city of love.  My motive is pretty much the same.  Hehe.  Hope you enjoy the pics!  Stay tuned for more.

I never thought about buying the Chanel wallet on the chain bag.  I’m always the girl who leans towards big bags.  I only use wristlets and clutches in the evening or on special occasions.  But while I was browsing the handbag section in Le Bon Marché (Paris), I suddenly have the urge to buy a Chanel bag.  This was definitely an impulse purchase but it’s something that I don’t regret.

As I grow older, I’m more cautious in choosing designer bags.  Chanel is always a fantastic choice because if I don’t buy it now, they’re just going to go up in price later.  Chanel handbags also have a relatively high resale value, although I don’t think I will ever sell any of my Chanel bags.
