{Yummy cupcakes}

30 Mar

Oh how I love cupcakes. Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, I like them all!

There’s this great place that’s on 2nd street in Long Beach, CA that has the most delicious cupcakes. My personal favorite is their red velvet with cream cheese frosting. They always have a flavor of the month that’s always a special recipe. When I crave cupcakes, I crave Frosted. I had a dozen different flavors once for my birthday and they were divine. They’re great for events/parties or just to have on a wednesday afternoon when your sweet tooth is calling. I always make a stop at Frosted when I go back to California to visit. I wish they had one here in Beijing. What’s your favorite cupcake flavor?

{Colorful bedding}

29 Mar

Loving this festive springtime inspired bedding from Bloomingdales.

I’ve always loved the idea of having lots of pretty pillows to decorate your bed. Fabulous bedding can really make your bedroom all the more stylish. I also like the idea of switching up your bedding based on the season. Fall/winter and spring/summer. What do you think? Do you have seasonal bedding?

 

 

{Decorate with stencils}

28 Mar

Can you believe these are wall stencils? I love interior wall patterns but haven’t been able to try it out yet. Perhaps I can experiment and wall stencil a little part of our apartment first. Royal Design Studios have a great How-To on basic stenciling techniques.

{Photo booth pictures}

28 Mar

Photo booths are incredibly entertaining! XP and I had a photo booth at our wedding in the states. Tons of awesome photos were taken that night that captured all the fun and merriment our family and guests had. I recommend having one to all the couples out there planning a wedding. It’s a great way to entertain your guests and capture priceless memories at your wedding reception. Set aside some money in your budget to have it because it can cost a pretty penny but trust me, it’s worth it.

Here’s me with some of my best friends. We love taking pictures. What do you think? Do you want a photo booth for your next fabulous event?

 

{Love wildly misunderstood}

27 Mar

Happy Sunday friends! Hope you’re having as lovely of a weekend as I am. Had a lazy saturday afternoon staying in away from the cold here in Beijing but Sunday rolled around and it was sunny and bright outside! Everyone was out today celebrating the awesome weather. Bought a basic black dress today from Mango and had a sushi date night with XP. What did you do this weekend? How is the weather elsewhere?

{When fashion meets illustration}

26 Mar

Meet Nancy Zhang. My girlfriend Tiffany Yu introduced me to her LOOKBOOK and I’m in love with the illustrations she does of herself. They are absolutely lovely and quite charming. Here are a couple of my favorites.

Tiffany and I both agree we want her to do illustrations of us.

{Nose eyeglass holder}

25 Mar

Totally thought of my husband when I saw this nose eyeglass holder. XP recently bought some prescription Hugo Boss eyeglasses on our recent trip to Hong Kong. His vision is seriously not that bad (mine are definitely worst) but he looks really cute with them on. He only wears them when he’s out in public (in china) hoping that he won’t get bothered for a photo or autograph. Kind of like a Clark Kent/Superman thing but in XP’s case he still gets recognized.

I like this cute elephant stand for my sunglasses (when I get a new pair because I broke my last ones by sitting on them …again).

{A mustache bash}

24 Mar

Found these cute mustache inspired invitations. They originally caught my eye because they remind me of my younger sister Ling Ling. Not that she has a mustache or anything like that. She’s a goofball and likes to draw them on her side of her fingers and hold them up to her nose and pretend she has a mustache. Just one of her many hilarious¬†shenanigans.

These are pretty cute as bachelor party invites. This would be a great DIY. Wouldn’t it be cute if there were an actual fake mustache attached instead of just a printed one?

You can find these lovely mustache invites here, here and here.

{Monsieur & madame}

24 Mar

I’m liking this fancy bathroom. I think it’s the pink towels and the chandelier that get me.

I’m loving the bathtub with the big mirror leaning against the wall. Perhaps instead of “Monsieur & Madame” bath rugs they could say “Angel & Xiaopeng”. Ummmm anyone know where I can find a custom item like that?
