One Day without Shoes


I really do.
It's not good for my plantar fasciitis, but I really do love those shoes.
We've kicked off our shoes on April 5th to support their campaign of
"One day without shoes".

Not only do those shoes feel so comfortable, I love the concept of "With every pair sold, TOMS donates a new pair of shoes to a child in need.".

I remembered when I was a teenager that "espadrilles was a hit in the 80's-90's" And I remembered that my friends and I had matching colors to match. Haahaa. Anyways,the first time I saw Tom's shoes was at the mall and it just reminded me of those espadrilles. Then I saw on twitter and researched on it. I went to Nordtrom's and tried it on and Loved it! BUT most of all, I loved the concept of "With every pair sold, TOMS donates a new pair of shoes to a child in need".

Last Year was their 3rd Annual "ONe Day without shoes". So J.T and I walked the Streets of San Fro without shoes".

This year "One Day without shoes" was on a spring break again and the boys and I walked to the park, beach and was at LAX without shoes. And yes, I saw some people walking down the pier and LAX without shoes and we all smiled. Haahaa.

It's kind of gross haahaa, but when I think about the people especially the Children who does not have any shoes, it motivates me to help them even more.

Spring Break '11

Spring break started on April Fools....No, seriously. April 1st was on Friday and I didn't have enough time to do some crazy pranks for the kids. However, I was still able to pull some pranks on them. I told them we were going to have cereal on friday. Which by the way they were not happy because cereal day is only on thursday. Anyways, Jake wanted Cocoa Pebbles ( placed real pebbles inside the box) and JT wanted Cocoa puffs, and placed (cottons). The boys started laughing. They thought they were going to eat eggs and pancakes, but I told them nahh, you are eating the cereal. They thought that was the prank.

Friday was also Lunch with someone special and
Portfolio day at school. Paul, Tito John and Lola ( my mom)
and I went to their school and had lunch with them
and looked and read at their projects and journal.

We are so grateful for all their accomplishments this year.

Obsession Du Jour

I love shopping, shoe shopping even better. And when I go to DSW, I feel like a little girl in a candy store. (minus the sugar) of course.

I love trying on trendy shoes and looking for classic ones.
THEN, I saw These BEAUTIFUL Pair of shoes.
A Sergio Rossi pair of shoes...

They were in the sale rack..(shockingly), and it was marked 80% off.
and it's priced $40.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I almost died and it was in my size section (81/2). HOWEVER
when I checked the size it was size 8!!!

And European shoes are totally diff. from American made shoes.
Those Sergio Rossi's were gorgeous and it was narrow and ran very tight and small.

I've walked around the store many times with those shoes.
I almost bought it.After all they said "Suffer for fashion"
But I had to give it up when I got to the cashier.
Maybe next time, they might have Mahnolos or Loubotin's there.
(Crossing my fingers)

Thanks Lola

Spring yet?

Ever since living here in the U.S, I get excited duirng season change. I cannot say that winter is my least favorite since we live in Sunny So Cal! I would love to be able to wear some of those Winter coats...

Next month, Target is having a "designers comeback". Huffington Post " Target is celebrating the five-year anniversary of its GO International program by re-releasing 34 dresses from its past 17 designer collaborations. So if you missed them the first time around, boy, are you in luck! They'll hit stores and Target.com come March 13. And the best part? We've flipped through the lookbook (repeatedly) and none of the frocks are priced higher than $44.99."..

I want Proenza, Thakoon,Behnaz Sarafpour, Alice Temperly,Jovovich Hawk. I'm stoked!

Here's another spring fave of mine.

So, when I heard her on the Ellen show last yr. and loved the song. It's AH-MAZING!

Well, because I can't "embed" the video. You can watch it here..

Then heard this song again while promoting the movie "I am number four".

Valentines, Birthday, Birthday and Many more

What a very busy week we've had. Sent out lots of XOXO last Monday's Valentine's Day. The boys did not have school however, I still had to work that day. A Beautiful poem, red roses, lots of kisses and hugs make it "extra special". With V-day landing on a monday, we went to our family favorite restaurant Mimi's cafe with my Mom and brother.

Wednesday was my DH's Birthday. Since having kids, we decided to celebrate Vday with the fam, Birthday with the fam then a separate "date night" on a weekend.

Thursday was our friend Maria and her son's birthday. They invited us and met at her office, rode a limousine to "rock sugar" at Century City. The boys let their wiggles out while in the limousine and behaved well and ate dinner well. The restaurant was great and food was very interesting with different "pan asian" cuisine-ish taste,texture and very delish. If you love Cheesecake Factory and Grand Luxe Cafe, you'll definitely love this restaurant :}}.

Friday was a lovely date night with my DH. Rain, movie, popcorn and an awesome Mom to watch the boys. What more can you ask for.

What a way to end this lovely week. It started raining on Wednesday and what more can you ask for. xoxo

4 Months

Nooooooooooooooo, I am not 4 months pregnant. It has been a very, very busy 4 months in our household. My boys are growing up so fast that I could not keep up with the blogging world. I am sure everyone can agree that FB and Twitter are way much easy to access nowadays. Well blogging world, you should try to have an "app" so it would be easier for us to blog too. HA!

I will really try my best to update and post pictures as soon as I get my groove back. HA!
Hope you had a wonderful V-Day. xoxo
