FOUR.i know i posted this Lauren Moffatt dress but i just had to since i want it & its a perfect dress for those july 4th bbq’s social events.

SEVEN.i didn’t know i always wanted a raccoon tee until i saw this. EIGHT.i want a break from my usual red polish and purple is my favorite color.

this year i put together a mother’s day wish list. and of course this list is great for other occasions (i.e.birthdays, i love you day, i need to buy you something, i am sorry please forgive me & i have money so heres a gift for you).
i put together two lists. one is under $100 and the other is $100 and above and with the latter some of them are hard to get in the US but hey if you have the money to get it, you probably got people of your own that can track it down or you could probably take a midnight flight on your own jet to get to that location and purchase it. and who knows, maybe you know the owner of that product.
as for me, i want it all of course. well, still not sure about the whole dinner in the sky thing but i have to include it since the idea of it since kind of cool and somewhat romantic.
happy shopping girls + boys + kids.
from one mom to another.
ONE. kate’s paperie: Campo Marzio Measuring Tapes. always good thing to have in your bag. everyone needs to measure a little something something every once in awhile and those IKEA paper measuring things are not so great and not so cute to have in your bag/purse/diaper bag.
TWO. Nixon Newton watch. i haven’t wore a watch in a long time. i pretty much use my iphone to tell me time and also because ever since i have a baby i try to not wear anything on my arm since it always end up scratching the kid. BUT with that being said, i want this in purple. and i think if you are a mom, this is pretty kid friendly to have on your arm.
THREE: fresh SUGAR LEMON EAU DE PARFUM. anything by fresh is pretty good. any lovely ladies love to smell good and/or smell pretty things. you cant really go wrong with this.
FOUR: Sweater Knit Bird Throw. its always nice to have something cute and neutral color around for cozy up time.
FIVE: ban do’s gold bow bobbi. this is super cute. you can clip it pretty much wherever and every lovely lady needs a good bow.
SIX: IzabelDesigns’s beadwoven ring. this is simple and unique and the price is great. you can get this and something else on the list to make it extra special.
SEVEN: i have been eyeing these two items forever, especially the EmersonMade one. but the ban.do one is pretty awsum as well. its hard to decide which one so i would get both. the bigger the better i say.
EIGHT: Orla Kiely Eau de Parfum Spray. never smell it but anything Orla Kiely i want.
NINE: Lollia handcremes is super smelling good. whenever i am at an Anthropologie shop, i always go and put some of the handcreme on and sometimes even spray their sample perfume. you cant go wrong with this stuff.
TEN: Matt Pugh’s Walnut Owl with Red Top. too cute to not have on her desk or on her bookshelf or by her bedside table. i want it in all colors.
ELEVEN: Yudu’s Personal Card-Making Screen Printer. i got a gocco and i hear this one is just as nice and would be a great gift for a craft mom. and who knows she can use it to send you a thank you card.
TWELVE: i love all things Anthropologie and this heart shape necklace is very simple and nice. its actually kind of hard to find a nice heart shape necklace without looking like you went and bought it from Claire’s or borrowing it from your little cousin. and lately i’ve been feeling wearing gold, especially rose gold.
ONE: MIFFY! i love me miffy. this miffy light is pretty hard to get if you are in the US but its super cute and any moms would want that for their kids. i know i would.
TWO: Weather Report Cape. i don’t know why this is so expensive but its pretty darn cute and its very useful for a mom with little one on a wet day. its hard to find a nice looking raincoat wearing gear and a different one aside from all the Burberry coat i see on a rainy day.
THREE: Sweetheart Bib Necklace. this necklace is just super delicious. its like adult candy necklace. its very lusty indeed.
FOUR: Mika Piirainen ‘s A line dress. i love it. i love dresses like this. so perfect for all year round in SF. with boots, with sandals, with socks+platforms. now if only it has pockets.
FIVE: DIEPPA RESTREPO shoes. no price listed but i am very sure its way more than $100. so shiny and nice. every mom needs a pair of dancing shoes.
SIX: Alex Monroe’s bicycle necklace. this is pretty sweet and good one to wear since i am sure the kids would like it as well. i never seen this one in person but this bicycle necklace from Anthropolgie is pretty nice as well but seems a bit bulkier but its way cheaper.
SEVEN: Evans Cycle | Pashley Poppy Hybrid Bike. this is very cute. imagine a mom with her kid taking a ride to her neighborhood stores or local farmers market.
EIGHT: See by Chloe | Closed Toe Wedge Sandals. these are great platforms for those super moms that are still okay wearing heels with their kids. it would go great with the aforementioned dress or any spring/summer dresses.
NINE: dinner in the sky. need i say more. if you actually went and got this as a mother’s day present, please email me and tell me everything.
TEN: Madsen Bikes. this is truly awsum. any mom would love to have this to carry their children around along with the kids’ stuff. i want one in pale yellow.
i hope you will find these two lists useful and please feel free to email me to tell me which one you got. as for me, i am not sure what i will be getting my mom yet. i know. time is running tight. i have too many ideas and want to get my mom many things. as for me, i got another bundle of joy to celebrate mother’s day with me on top of my existing bundle of joy. its like mothers day for me everyday.
the month of december is finally upon us and it means that all my desires/wants can be shared and i dont have to feel so guilty for wanting so much stuff. heres the beginning of my list. i dont necessarily need or want every single item but since its the holiday season, i have a very loose/generous rules about things i want/need. as long as i like them or they are worthy of my eyes to stop and my brain to ponder-wonder, then its on the list. SO, here they are. i think these items would make a great gift for YOU, YOUR MOM, YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR GF, YOUR BFF, YOUR SECRET CRUSH, YOUR IDOL, or simply just me. (confession: when making wish list type deal, i always rather have someone that i dont really know well to give it to me since i wouldnt feel so bad that they are spending all this money to get me my wants. does that make sense? if its someone like my close family, i would rather they spend the money on themselves. SO, with that said, i guess this is truly a wish list because who and what someone who i dont really know would go and buy me things??!!! SANTA? are you out there reading me blog?)
ONE: iphone4 bamboo case by grove. i would like to customize my own. but right now its only available for iphone4 and if i were given this case, he/she needs to buy me an iphone4 as well.
TWO: ghost lamps. they are supercute. i can use it or my little dude could use it if he fancies it.
THREE: dyson DC25 All Floor. do i really need to say anything more. i wont be me if i dont obsessed about vacuum. i REALLY TRULY WANT a dyson and this is the one i want to start with. seriously, i want it. if you read this blog, you know ive been wanting a dyson for a long long long time.
FOUR: BOLD-STEPPING BOOTIES. toggle. i want everything in toggle. everything toggle i want.
FIVE: Orla Kiely’s radio. i posted about this before and i am posting it again. I DO LIKE IT. I MEAN I LOVE IT.
SIX: Diana Mini En Rose.
SEVEN: Yuma cardigan. i like the pattern and i would wear it with the bold-stepping booties (wish list item FOUR). i do i do like it.
EIGHT: Jambox from Jawbone. i want one or two or in all colors just so i can say it out loud to people that i have a jambox from jawbone.
NINE: ASICS x Sanrio 50th anniversary sneaker. i dont love it but for some reason i am feeling it and wouldnt mind kicking these kicks around. they are kinda ugly but yet i am liking the no socks with these kicks look. why not i say. size 8 please.
TEN: iP40 FM Alarm Clock Radio. just nice to have in the bathroom or in the kitchen.
ELEVEN: WorkCycles Oma.
TWELVE: Piece of Sky Rug.
its been awhile since i did any posting about my recent new desires. i constantly see a bunch of new wants and below are some that i actually like/want that its worth for me to share with you. and besides, its almost that time of year where my most favorite holiday is coming up and i know ive been pretty good this year that mr santa claus would want to see some kind of wish list from me (of course this is just the beginning):
1. GLORY CHEN – these shoes!! i want them in my closet for sure. i want it in all the colors. it has the most perfect round toe ever. its my most ideal roundness in a shoe and i MUST have them. i will get them. but which color should i start with. what do you think, feet?
2. DYSON – no need to say more. if youve been following this blog, you know i love vacuums and i am not afraid to share it and shout it. if i could i would have a vacuum in every room and they would have to be a different kind since they would serve different purposes, just like each room serve a different purpose. i DO like the dyson so much. i dont have one yet but maybe i will get one for christmas? how about this little one? it can sit in a dark corner and you would never know about it. OH. I WANT IT SO MUCH.
3. this bag. i always like to have a nice simple black bag around. so whenever i see one thats worthy i would like to have it sitting in my closet for those days that i feel like using a black bag. its a very comforting feeling to know that you have it when you need it since they are pretty hard to find. kind of like a good pair of jeans or a nice basic tee or jacket or sweater or etc. you get the point.
4. i really dig this set up for my little dude’s room. i would want it for myself if it comes in an adult king size. what i really love is the sheets combo. it makes me think of eating strawberries and having strawberry shortcake doll as a decor. i think my little dude would really like it. maybe someone can just make one for us? please? its not for me? its for a super cute little dude? anyone? make it for us? elves?
5. this bed would be pretty cool if the case of the latter wish does not get fulfilled.
its the first rain of the fall season after that annoying heat wave. i hope this will mean that fall is finally here to stay. it has to since i got my first pair of boots for this very fall season. heres some findings i did in the past few days. i am keeping it short since i am trying hard to not want too much.
here it goes:
these books ends are too cute. i want them all and put them all over our house since we got rooms in almost all our rooms. they are SO very cute and yet so very pricey but i SO want them.
their Dame and Knight A/W2010 line is pretty freaking fantastic. i want everything and somehow the girl model reminds me of Bjork. their dresses are my style especially the length. come to me or come to america or feel free to send me to you.
i like –
the Clarity project (good place for someone who wants to buy something something sparkly and special for someone thats filled with bubbly hearts.)
Polarno Pyret’s neck warmer for baby
Emerson Made – i want it all.
i like the bed but i really like the bed tent for my little dude.
the micuna furniture is nice and simple and the colors are so soft.
this BOW scarf is awsum but of course is sold out right now.
these 80%20 – women’s eliotte suede boots is a must have especially with the toggles. i am a sucka for toggle.
i saw these Minnetonka® fringed low moccasins in store and they are pretty cute and the price is great.
just for kicks, i would like to try this Komenuka Bijin shampoo since my current shampoo will run out soon.
i have recently discovered a bunch of stuff that i want* and since with the lack of consuming cash, i decided to make my own cash-cash so that i can buy the stuff that i want. and with blogging about it, it would make me feel like i actually bought the items and fulfilled that desire hole in my brain. its kind of like adding stuff in my wish list.
so heres some stuff that ive been wanting to bring home:
1) Rue magazine.
6) THE ORIGINAL MOROCCANOIL Oil Treatment – this has been on my list forever and with my cash-cash i figure why not get it now.
7) BOOTS. every fall season i have to get some boots. its in my blood to search for a new pair of boots every year. and every year i make the purchase or purchases and i will tell myself that i have all the boots in all the colors and i wont have to buy anymore the year after. and every year i lied. this year my goal is to find the perfect black boots without looking like i am wearing rainboots. i have these in Cognac and really do like them (even though everyone has them). and i feel like i should get the black ones since i know they fit. not sure. but heck, i got my cash-cash, why not.
8) a new cape for this fall/winter.
i shall stop here before the list gets too long.
fall is my most favorite weather. one of the reason is because i can have many options for outfits – i can pretty much wear all the clothes i have in my closet.
i saw the Orla Kiely fall/winter 2010-11 line (via VOGUE UK) and it makes me wish that fall can come right now!
what i love the most in all these outfits are the bags and the shoes! the shoes with the socks. i love it. i want to know who make this specific shoes???! but for now, i shall replace them with these SEE BY CHLOÉ (size 8).
my eyes landed upon these shoes and AMAZING was what my brain told me. AND they have kids shoes that are just as beautiful. i think part of the reason for the attractiveness of the shoes are the candy colors. it makes me want to go and get a red candy apple down at the wharf. i must hit the store and cant wait to see what they look like on my feet and i wonder if they are comfortable at all. and i want my little dude to try them on too! cant wait.
thank you ms. glory chen.
