Fab.com = Fabulous Finds

Image
I recently discovered a website called Fab.com and have been raving about this new flash sale site to everyone I came across.  It will be soon featuring our leather handbags and leather wallets. It's not your typical online retail site.  Fab.com showcase some of the most unique design inspirations and sales upto 70% off retail to members only.  The site has become so popular there's even a wait list just to become a member.  This past Christmas I avoided the mall and completed my Christmas shopping with a lot of help from Fab.com.  I found a lot of unique gift ideas for all ages!!!

Great News!  I was super excited when I received an email from the Fab.com team asking me if  I would like to feature Mei Vintage bags on their site. Without hesitation, I said yes!  I woke up this morning and saw orders coming in.  Thank you Fab.com.!!  If you are still looking to purchase a Mei Vintage handbag, I recommend that you sign up here and get ready for an amazing deal!  Mei Vintage hand…

Raining Day and Monday in LA

Image
The weather in LA has been a little bit unpredictable recently.  Last weekend the weather was sunny at the Renegade Fair in LA and today it's raining and chilly.  I woke up this morning to the sound of rain. It reminds me of Carpenters song, Raining Days and Mondays.  I enjoy listening to oldies growing up and I love Karen Carpenter's voice. She made me feel happy and loved and she had the most beautiful voice ever!  I am staying indoor today and enjoying her angelic voice while getting some work done.

Marni at H&M in Spring 2012

Image
H&M just announced a spring designs collaboration with the Italian brand Marni.  She's famous for its original prints and I LOVE prints! Check out the video here and as Tim Blanks quoted nicely "She aims for the sensuality of the mind".  So excited about this collaboration, and I think it's defiantly worth the wait.... in long lines!  Now I just have to find a girlfriend to wait with me ;)

RECYCLED GIFT WRAPPING

Image
Furoshiki gift wrapping technique is an art in Japan and 100% reusable!  I discovered Furoshiki during one of my recent visit to Japanese Town in downtown Los Angeles.    This is a creative gift wrapping alternative  and a great way to help save our planet by reducing the use of plastic or paper bags.  Here's a step-by-step video that I found from www.ohcrafts.net to show you just how easy it is to learn Furoshiki techniques!

SPRING IN EUROPE

Image
Exploring and getting lost in Europe during Spring time was simply amazing!  You can see lush green pastures, tulips, magnolias and various flowers blossoming along the highways and roadsides. 
On the way to Mont St. Michele in Normandy.


During high tide, Mont St. Michele appears as though it's floating on water. It's a majestic church surrounded by magnificent bay. The architecture and the panoramic views were breathtaking!

I took my Braidy hobo on this trip with me. A perfect travel bag to stuff my guide books, camera, and snacks for the long hike.

Sea view from Mont St. Michele during low tide.

Next to Mont Saint Michele is the cutest beach town I have ever visited called St. Malo.  This town was filled with tourists and locals digging for mussels during low tide season. 

The "massive swimming pool" in St. Malo.  It's incredible to witness the rising tides.


Next stop was Belgium. The land of the famous comic book character called "Tin Tin".
