Hermes Birkin + Kelly Leather Cutout Totes

Hermes Birkin + Kelly Leather Cutout Totes

Last season when I went to the beautiful Rue de Sevres store of Hermes, I noticed these birkin and kelly leather cutout totes on display. At Hermes, they really don’t leave much leather to waste– they decided to make bags even out of the leather cutouts that were leftover materials...

A Most Relaxing Saturday: Terazi Spa at Discovery Primea, Makati

I am currently billeted at the Discovery Primea Hotel in the heart of the central business district in Makati for the Chinese New Year weekend. I have been needing a much needed weekend getaway– it’s funny I should say that because I travel so much. But I do travel for...
Bag Review: Elie Saab Pairs Backpack with Couture Gown

Bag Review: Elie Saab Pairs Backpack with Couture Gown

I would cringe when I see a beautifully dressed woman in a gown carrying a chunky bag. I would have normally recommend a box clutch, a flat pochette, or a minaudiere for formal occasions. Never really thought that sizable leather bags would work with couture. Until Elie Saab’s current Haute...

Fun Betsey Johnson Bags!

Fun Betsey Johnson Bags!

I have not been going around a lot of stores lately because I shop only when I need to– but this holiday season has allowed me to check out different bags with different price points I am so glad I did because I would not have discovered how much fun Betsey Johnson bags are! They...

Smitten: The Best Ice Cream in San Francisco

It’s sooooo cold here in San Francisco that everyday I have to go get my big Starbucks of coffee. How very American, right? Hahaha actually such a covenient excuse because this is the only place I get to try all my favorite holiday flavoured coffee– from eggnog, pumpkin spice, to peppermint and gingerbread The Starbucks...
When Small is Better :)

When Small is Better :)

Tsk. Small Bags! I’m talking about small bags LOL!! Now, unless it’s a travel backpack or tote (or the Loewe Puzzle bag haha), I’m over big bags. My Mom says big bags look better on me because I’m tall and they don’t drown me. I say, my time with big bags has gone– along with...

New Year’s Brunch at The Cooperage American Grille

Happy New Year!!! 2016 was off to a good start– we had an incredible brunch at The Cooperage American Grille by Fiesta Square in Lafayette– close to our hood. Very nice ambience. This restaurant took us by surprise considering it was our last option as there were a few great ones in the area as...
My Life Lesson Takeaways From 2015

My Life Lesson Takeaways From 2015

Many have quietly gone through tough times this 2015. Though my year was so much better than the last one, I too, did experience a number of bumps. There were so many times I questioned myself and questioned my purpose in this society, in this industry, and in this life. And while many times my...
My Neiman Marcus Tradition with My Mom + Christmas Bag Finds

My Neiman Marcus Tradition with My Mom + Christmas Bag Finds

I love the downtown SF Neiman Marcus. For years now, it is tradition for them to put up the massive Christmas tree, the base of which, sits in the perfume section I always loved the Neiman Marcus Rotunda’s popover bread, and though the other cafe in- store (it was 2 floors below Rotunda) has since...
Gucci Bamboo Daily "Copy" at Nordstrom

Gucci Bamboo Daily “Copy” at Nordstrom

If I were Gucci, I’d be pretty miffed about Nordstrom’s decision to carry an exact same version of the Bamboo Daily in- store. This bag under the label Carla Ferreri looks exactly like the Gucci version, only obviously Gucci’s bag is of far more superior quality.   The abovementioned designer might say her bag is...
Downtown SF Shopping: Barneys New York

Downtown SF Shopping: Barneys New York

Finally after almost 2 weeks of being in the Bay Area, we drove to the city I was secretly hoping to see better stuff in the bargain bins of Barneys NY and Neiman Marcus. We only had an hour to spend in both stores because of dinner reservations *I know right, how is one hour...

My Top 5 Bag Picks For 2015!

My fave bag list is definitely more than 5 and includes the Loewe Puzzle Bag (which I have written up about so many times), the Tod’s Wave Bag (which you’d also have seen featured on my instagram account), and the Fendi By The Way Bag (which is really a perennial favorite– I want the micro...

Boxing Day 2015 Bags + Shoe Finds

You have no idea how excited everyone was to go Downtown Walnut Creek (haha we all woke up too late for Downtown SF) for some retail therapy after we were hanging out in snowy Lake Tahoe. Boxing Day usually spells bargains so my wallet was getting a bit nervous LOL. First (and only) stop: Neiman...
South Lake Tahoe: Evan's American Gourmet Cafe

South Lake Tahoe: Evan’s American Gourmet Cafe

Woke up on Christmas morning to below freezing temperatures– it was -6 degC!!! The whole house was still in dreamland because everyone slept so late, so I took the opportunity to head out just to take this breathtaking photo. There was a light snowstorm yesterday which brought fresh powder onto the iced lake. It was...
