SUMMER DATE NIGHT LOOK
Jun 15th, 2019
Even though it is hard to have date nights with my hubby while sharing the duties of parenting two young boys, we do manage to go out once in a while on a date. Since this kind of occasion doesn’t happen often, I tend to dress up more than usual when it does.
VINTAGE BLING BLING
Jun 3rd, 2019
In general I am not the kind of girl who likes to wear bling blings. However, every once a while, I like to push my comfort zone and try something new. The key to wearing sequin pieces for a spring day is to pair them with understated classic pieces like a perfectly-cut shorts. Basically, make it the focal point of your look and keep everything else simple and classy.
NEW OBSESSION: A NOD (TO) DESIGN JEWELRY
May 24th, 2019
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably already know that jewelry is MY THING. When it comes to jewelry, my motto is the more the merrier! A big fan of jewelry in general, I love the way it transforms the most casual outfits into polished and sophisticated ensembles and adds that perfect finishing touch to any night-time look!
The designer for all the jewelry I am featuring today is Wenjing Yang, a Portland-based designer. Wenjing was in apparel design industry for about a decade before she started designing jewelry. Making jewelry is what she loves to do now and it also offers her the freedom and balance she needs between working and taking care of her family. Every year A NOD (TO) DESIGN partners with a non-profit organization, donating 5% of every sale. This year it is teaming up with The Oregon Food Bank to make sure no one suffers from hunger. (more…)

IN THE TRENCHES
Jan 31st, 2019
Jumpsuits are my THING, as most of you probably already know. Well, guess what my SECOND THING is. Yes, it is trench coat. If jumpsuits are my lovers, then trench coats are like soulmates. They come in all kinds of different shapes, lengths and colors. But unlike soulmates, there is no need to be faithful to them.
Jan 21st, 2019
Of all the different materials for clothing out there, cashmere has to be my favorite for winter. Soft and comfy, cashmere sweaters have always been my absolutely go-to pieces of clothing in the winter time, when I don’t feel like putting too much effort.
A BETTER YOU FOR 2019
Jan 4th, 2019
Many people say as their new years resolution, “New Year, New Me!” But what I have found out over the years is this statement needs an update. Why would you ever want to start over again and be “new”, when you have such a rich, lived, and experienced “old” you to count on to become a better version of yourself each and every day. We become smarter and “better” human beings by learning from our experiences – good or bad.

I was listening to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” as I was cooking Christmas Eve dinner, when a crazy idea came to my mind… I decided to wrap myself in left-over gift wrapping papers and turn myself into a giant Christmas present!!
YOUR GO-TO HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
Dec 13th, 2018
The holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year because it helps feed my shopaholic soul, show the people I love my appreciation, and is the season of giving back! Today is your lucky day because I compiled a personalized Go-To Gifting Guide for him and her! I spent my whole day listening to Christmas music, drinking hot coco, enjoying the sound of the rain hitting my office window, and browsing the web for hours to find the perfect gifts in all price ranges for you all. I hope you find my this post as helpful as it had been for me and happy holidays!
