Weekend Fun and New Pieces on Etsy

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Happy Monday!! 

I'm melting as I am writing this because the air conditioner is broken in the building. Please forgive any delirious writing and/or typos. 

I want to share my weekend photos along with a new addition to my Etsy shop

the newest addition: Micro paved skull bracelet (click the link to see more pictures and details)

I usually name all of my jewelry pieces after greek goddesses, but I named this one after a dear friend Jessica. I was fortunate enough to have met her when I first started blogging and YouTube. She is an amazing women with a big heart. I remember the devastating tsunami that hit Japan a few years ago.  In efforts to raise money for the Japan red cross, I hosted a blog sale.  All of the proceeds went to the Japan Red Cross and we raised over $800! I couldn't have done this without good friends from the blog and YouTube world, and Jessica was one of them.  She donated many of the items from the blog sale. 

 The Jessica bracelet up close   It is a texture party on your arm! I mixed all sorts of textures together for the Jessica bracelet.  I hope you all liked it!

Every time I visit LA I always visit Half & Half. If you ever get a chance to visit, I would recommend the Honey Boba. It is not your typical milk tea, but to be honest I really don't know what it is made of exactly.  I just know I'm addicted! ;)

Mr. K and I enjoyed a relaxing Sunday brunch up in the mountains of Burbank after a long weekend.  What a perfect way to end the weekend! I hope you have a great rest of the week!

{Closed} Jewelry Collection Giveaway!

Monday, July 16, 2012

Happy Monday!!  Surprisingly, it is a pretty chilly summer day here in northern California. So I wanted to do a little giveaway for all of you!

As a lot of you know, I have a little shop on Etsy selling jewelry handmade by me. I felt it was only appropriate if I shared these pieces with my readers as well. Here are a few pieces...

First up is the very popular "le chic" bracelet in gold. Now, of course these pictures do not do justice to the bracelet.  See it on Wendy from Wendyslookbook here, and here.

If gold is not your thing here is the silver counterpart. 
Le Chic necklace in silver (also available in gold)
 And of course, the Le Chic bracelet in silver.

As much as I love gold I also like to incorporate silver in my wardrobe as well. It is often difficult to wear gold fashion jewelry because many fine jewelry is in white gold or platinum. Just look at your wedding set! (or vice versa if your wedding set is gold) So, what better way to wear accessories but to mix the metal colors?

Mix metal fun with silver Charity and gold Athena necklaces below.

Now onto the giveaway!  There will be 1 winner for every 10 entries. For example, if there are 34 entries on this post, then I will be picking 3 winners. Each winner will be able to pick his or her favorite piece shown in this post. The giveaway is INTERNATIONAL and will stay open for 2 weeks.

To enter:
1) Must be a follower of this blog
2) Leave me a comment below letting me know where you are from and which piece you would like to win
3) Follow me on Facebook so I can get to know you better!

Good luck everyone!

Happy Monday! I finally sat down and organized the pictures from IMATS 2012! Aside from all the shopping,  I also got to meet many fellow Youtube gurus.

There are a few things you can't leave IMATs without: good friends, food, and of course...tons of makeup!

As many of you know, I am a big foodie. Not a very good combination with being Asian either! Why you ask? Well, I'm one of those Asian people you see taking pictures of food every chance I can. It has become quite  problem for my SD card and hard drive. 
If you ever get a chance to visit Los Angeles, CA make sure you visit Arroyo Steakhouse! The porterhouse is amazing!
Finished the night with Grand Marnier Souffle 
Thank you so much for letting me share this awesome trip with you. Lastly, I just wanted to thank everyone I met on this trip (all of the lovely ladies pictured above), you girls rock!
