Happy New Year!!

It's early but I thought I say Happy New Year to everyone! What's the plan? I personally won't do anything special. Plus I'm still working even on New Year's Eve tomorrow, so this just feels like a long weekend to me, not holidays. Looking forward to Twenty Ten, that means more holiday(s) to plan since I will get my PTO back haha and more shopping (I shouldn't but oh well..).

Anyway I thought I post pic of the new cardigan that I bought last week. They are so cute with black dress and belts or with legging/skinny jeans. I will post modeling pics soon! Oh I got it from Forever21. I think these days it's either Anthropologie or Forever21 for me. I like trendy pieces, but unless I really really love it, I won't spend too much for it. Even with Anthro I normally wait till their sale ;-)

That said, Chanel will definitely increase their price (again!)- Jumbo caviar is now Maxi's old price. I kinda anticipated this back in November but it didn't happen, I guess, this time it's true. These applies to their watches and jewelries too. Should I say that I'm making the right investment(s)? haha. I'm such an enabler and bad influence for my sisters. They starting to follow suit and kept telling mom how Chanel is an investment. What have I done?!?

About 2010 resolution- this is one of my wishlist! I need this in my life. I want the large size but don't mind the medium, definitely no for small. It's Cartier watch from the Ballon Bleu collection. Look at her-It's LOVE. I may want the all stainless steel one, but it depends on how it looks in real life I guess.

I'm Going to Las Vegas!

I love Vegas so much haha so DH and I are going there for Xmas :-)
We are going to stay at the newly opened Vdara, part of City Center Las Vegas, surrounded by Bellagio, Aria Resort and Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas and Crystals Retails. I so cannot wait!! I'm going to take million of pictures next week.

First Xmas Tree

Ever since I moved to the US, DH and I never bought our own Xmas tree. Even after our house finished being built and we moved in there, still no tree. We finally bought one on Saturday night. I need more ornaments, but I'm happy that we finally have a tree.

By the way, now I'm confused where we should go for our trip next year. London, Hawaii or St Barts?

How Is This Possible?

Ok, now that I'm losing S, my SA from NM, I gotta get connected with a new one. And I think I found one  from Saks at Georgia :-)

That said, how funny is this main fact: I think my SA is more savvy than me and I'm a dork haha. Why? Because he sent all these beautiful bags and shoes pictures with his little iPhone (I know this because of COURSE it said at the bottom of the page "sent through iPhone"). And this is disturbing.
How come with the amount of money that I spent for fashion, I don't have a "smart" phone? How yr 2000 is Nadia? I really need a smartie pants phone, seriously- I am going to include this as my 2010 resolution. Forget about "losing weight" resolution- I need to be phone savvy!

Next, I have to tell you that my-already-basic cantonese is getting worse! For the life of me I couldn't understand how the heck I forgot how to say Roast Duck when I try to ordered it at this Chinese restaurant after work. I need go there more often-that's the solution hahahahaha. All of the staffs luckily speaks cantonese and we had a little chit chat with my rusty-not-exactly-the-right-way-to-say-it chinese. Anyway, I need to watch more HK series for sure, stop the Korean.

Anyway, thought we should have a giggle over this. No purchase(s) to report.


Carrousel Dots Top by Marc Jacobs

I just bought this cute summer top and cannot wait till  UPS deliver it next Tuesday. I love Marc Jacobs, they always have girly tops, skirts and cardigan. I don't find them at the highest quality though, that's why I normally wait till they have sale. Their tops can easily cost $180 and up with jackets can go as much as $500. Oh and I was talking about their Marc by Marc Jacobs range, not the Marc Jacobs that will cost even more.

So anyway, this top that I bought, originally cost $238 and I got it for $88. Pretty happy about that!
Here is the pic, and I actually bought the black one with white collar instead.

My New Chanel Shoes!

Sorry for the lack of updates. I'm swamped at work and probably continue that way till Xmas...sigh.
But what's better than getting a new pair of shoes. I initially bought 3 shoes, 2 Chanel and 1 Louboutin (they are on sale heheh), but since they don't have my size they ordered them from another stores.

A week later, which was last night, I went to NM and tried them on. Alas, the Louboutin just too tall for me (5 inches), so a no for that. Then the Chanel satin booties, unfortunately they weren't that comfortable and for satin with a leather shoes price..mmm..I don't think so. So that's a no too. Finally this last pair, Chanel classic spark chains logo shoes pump...they just fit beautifully! I love love them so much and what's best, not only they are only like 3.5 inches (walkable that is!), they are also 30% off the retail price and I got double points on my NM card. Yay!!  I'm wearing them to work this morning ;-)

Early Birthday Celebration

DH and I were celebrating my birthday tonight. 2 days early haha but it doesn't really matter for me.
We had meals at McCormick at the Domain with the gift cards that we bought from Costco, happy happy!
I also wore the Alice + Olivia strong shoulder top that I bought from NM yesterday.

Yes, the Black Friday shopping yesterday was a great success haha. Actually I didn't spend that much, only the top and some energy saver light bulbs from Home Depot, trendy no? Nah...I hate the yellow-ish lightings in my closet, so I bought the daylight one therefore it's brighter and white!

DH bought me diamonds studs earrings from Bailey Banks & Biddle since they were 50% off. They are closing down if you have not heard, all stores in the whole nation. Yay, I'm loving my new earrings!

ODJ: Black strong shoulder top from Alice + Olivia, black bubble skirt from Forever New (Australian brand), flower headband from Forever21, Chanel 10C Jumbo Bleu Roi, Nude Open Clic heels from Louboutin, black 38mm J12.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! (well not yet technically haha)

Chubby Baby Ornament

DH got me this adorable Xmas ornament today. My first Xmas ornament. So adorable because it's a little baby angel in onesies outfit with a red hat and wings.
Pity we don't even have a Xmas tree LOL. I have plenty of bags but no Xmas tree, isn't that ironic? Oh well..maybe when I have kid(s) then I can force myself to buy one. For now, this cute ornament will stays inside the box.

Thanksgiving ODJ

Sniff Sniff, I'm a little sick and still replying work's email on my LONG WEEKEND..err.. however DH and I are about to go the Thanksgiving dinner at our friend's house. I got DH to take some pics heheh. I'm not wearing anything fancy since it's going to be cold (ok, I didn't wear my jacket while these pics were taken)-sorry folks it's going to be a boring one, but I'm taking baby bluey out tonight. Doesn't she look gorgeous?

Ps. DH loves my bluey too, he thinks she's gorgeous and special! Yay for making the right decision.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

My Bleu Roi Has Arrived!

And just like the way I imagined it, my heart melts as soon as I see my Bleu Roi peeking through her dustbag. If you are still wondering her true color, my previous post HERE and HERE are accurate in terms of the correct shade of Bleu Roi.

As of right now, I'm sad to say that I think I must return the Marine Blue tomorrow. It hurts me a little to even say it, but the Marine Blue deserves someone who is going to really love her forever.

I'm going to post pics as soon as I get home.

Tell me what you think- My Thanksgiving is now super wonderful!


This is the Marine and Bleu Roi, side by side. I have returned the Marine this afternoon *sobs*
Please note, this pic was taken with flash.

My modeling picture with Bleu Roi. Sorry I just have to cut my face off LOL. It was 7.30am in the morning before I went to work and I looked horrible with puffy face and no make ups!

From The Latest Nordstrom Catalog

I've been staring at this picture every night. I'm hoping that's how my Bleu Roi color will look tomorrow.
I am lame with the capital L :D


Are We There Yet?!??

Ha! I'm already in holiday mode. Why oh why I have to go to work tomorrow? But that said, my Bleu Roi is coming tomorrow, just in time for the holidays *winks*
I really hope I'm loving one of the two rather than both~ otherwise I am in trouble. Fingers crossed!

Ok, so once again this year DH and I are not going to have our own Thanksgiving dinner. We are going to our friend's place, who lives 5 minutes from our house just like last year. Oh well...I rather be merry than being alone with just the two of us. It will be fun! And oooh...I managed to loose 2.2 lbs this past week haha, so Turkey, bring it on!!

I have no plan to go to the Black Friday shopping either. I was planning to buy mom a new mini laptop, but after having lots of doubts about how to send it over to another country, I gave up. I will get her one when she's coming here to visit.

Mmm what else, there's nothing else to report until tomorrow that is when my FedEx boy is going to deliver my bag.  Today DH and I had pizza for lunch and we went to the Wolf Ranch Mall at Georgetown for a stroll. Bought DH 2 sweaters with the colors of my choice ;-) and he was happy to obliged. I bought some Vera Wang tights from Kohls too. Last week my strong shoulder black tunic arrived from Lulu's and I got this pretty ribbon with diamontes headband from Forever21. Yeah, I'm such a cheapo on some stuffs! But it works for me so I'm not complaining.

So, are we there yet (the holidays I mean)??

*UPDATES* I'm Confused

>>>>> Scroll all the way down to read my Updates!
For the first time I'm having a second thought on my Jumbo.
I got this Marine Blue Jumbo in Caviar and Silver Hardware however after seeing all the Bleu Roi pictures, I'm not sure if I want to keep this Marine Blue (which also sold out) and just swap it with the Bleu Roi.

I looked at my wardrobe the other day and I do believe the Marine will go with so many outfits. It's as versatile as my Black one. The Bleu Roi however will pops any dark outfits and I have lots of blacks, the reason I'm thinking to swap. The problem is the Bleu Roi is nowhere available at this point, so I cannot compare which I hate. Looking at pictures are different than comparing both in real life.

Here they are- Mind you, my Marine in real life looks darker than the photo. Oooh decision, decision! It's so hard!! The photo was taken without Flash, so it's under natural light and again in real life, it DOES look darker than the picture.

Bleu Roi>>>>

The minute I posted this, I got a tip that NM at Newport Beach, CA has the Bleu Roi. It's on the way to me now YAY!!! This means I get to compare between the two, keep one and return the other. Can't believe my luck. I guess persistent helps huh. Why I cannot be this eager when it comes to other things HAHA. I'm happy now.

Birthday Plan

I finally made the reservation. Yeah I know I'm early. But it's going to be a long weekend and I'm sure a lot people are going to eat out that night. Although my birthday fall on Monday after Thanksgiving weekend, DH and I decide to celebrate 2 days early, so that we don't have to worry about going back to work the next day. So Saturday 11/28 it is. We will go to McCormick & Schmick's and we are looking forward to have some nice meals there and an awesome night.

I'm drooling right now just looking at their pictures menu!!
And I kept changing my mind about what to wear. I'm totally hopeless. I guess I will decide on that day.

Hats This Winter

I had a haircut on Thursday and suddenly had the urge to buy pretty hats in time for winter.  However I do not want to pay too much since you probably only wear them few months each year (and not everyday too). Girl gotta be a cheapskate on something so she can splurge on bags right *winks*

Anyway I found these awesome hats and it won't break your budget, I promise!

The pinstripe is $44 then the one with buttons is $32 and $40 for the black hat with flower.
The last one is actually a headband but I love it so much at $13 you cannot go wrong! I tempted to get one in either the grey or beige.

Oooh I posted a link below so you know where to buy these....

Ok, I'm off to the spa!

ps. LOL now I wish I have a long hair!

Thank You and Birthday Month

Word of mouth is powerful. I have my own SA and she's not in TX however I'm more than happy to give her all the commissions that she deserves. In fact I gave her details around to our little Chanel inner circle (that's what my DH thinks anyway heheh) @ TPF so she can get more clients and more money in return. I got a thank you call from her today, thank you for recommending her to others. She is so so sweet! You are very welcome "D"! And I'm looking forward to get all the gift cards that I have accumulated for this year, come to think of it, I probably can get LV or Chanel wallet for free..that's crazy! On a second thought, maybe I will get some new outfits for Spring instead. I've been too busy buying other stuffs that I have forgotten about getting a new outfits.

That aside, don't you just love getting a small something during your birthday month? I got a little card on the mail yesterday from Anthropologie. I'm not VIP or anything-so don't worry hehe, but I do shop there quite a bit (especially during their sale). I have to say, I love them for being creative like that. I took pics of the card that they've sent me yesterday since I think it's adorable. Don't you agree? Ps. It's a candle little necklace if you notice...

DH and I have already planned where we should have dinner for my birthday this year. I kinda now what I want to wear too but I'm just bummed that my birthday this year will fall on Monday. Most likely we will have the dinner on Saturday or Sunday.

I'm going to have a haircut tommorow, and 180 minutes spa this Saturday. This is going to be the first spa that I booked using the gift card DH gave me for our anniversary (LOL I waited for 2 months!). I'm looking forward to it! I hope my Zimmerman bathers still fit me haha.

Victoria Beckham's Louboutin and Hair

I just love her Louboutin, it's called "Maggie". I saw those pair in NM a month ago, but at 130mm (5.25 inches = 13.33cm), I will never be able walk with them. They are still available if you look hard enough (actually Saks has them in Lilac CLICK HERE) and if you are after the exact same color, Barneys have them CLICK HERE and plenty of sizes are available. I personally will give them a miss (unless they reduce the price like at least 50% haha). I may need to go to chiro if I buy those shoes!
Ohh and I absolutely love her new hair!! I'm going to have a haircut this Thursday and I don't know what style to have. I'm such a chicken. At any rate, you will just see me with old plain bob heheh.

ps. Oooh her poor Hermes sitting on the ground. I just wanted to cry.
