Sizzling hot......

Sorry for the lack of posts for the past week. I just got back home from Toronto and the hot humid weather has been draining all my energy.

Had a great visit at home. Celebrated Father's Day with my dearest Dad and family on the weekend. My hubby's family used to have a restaurant and we helped out whenever we could. Mother's Day has always been the busiest day of the year. Father's Day would be busy but not as nearly as crazy as Mother's Day. Why? Mother's Day is the "official" day for all Moms to relax for the day and free tickets not to enter the kitchen. But for Father's Day, what happens? Moms will have to cook for Dads and families, just like any other day. 



Took Dad out for our family's favorite: sushi. Perfect for a hot summer night.

I did pretty good in terms of limiting myself to excessive shopping. Besides the J. Crew haul, I only got a few other things.




I am a big Lululmeon fan and have been a loyal customer for years. I know a lot of people cannot justify of how pricey their items are. But honestly, the quality is excellent and after constant washes, they still look great, no fading of colors and they hold up exceptionally well. 

I was looking for a tank top which is more loose on the torso (yes, to hide my imperfections) this top is longer too to hide my other ass-set.

I have been eying on the Tory Burch Reva flats for months. Yes, I got the cheaper version of the Coach  Dora flats(as mentioned in this post), every time I see Tory Burch Reva, I still love them. 


Went with the black Reva with silver buckle. My sister-in-law got a pair too and she said they are comfortable but best to size up half a size. She brought her pair for traveling and she got her regular size and her feet hurt so bad from the back of the flats as the elastic on the back is rubbing on her feet. 

I love how classic Reva looks and I could wear them with jeans, shorts and skirts. Very versatile. Just hope I can break them in soon so I can enjoy them.

Ever since I saw this on the Gap website a while back, I wanted that but thought would wait for a sale since their promo is so often. But this particular color sold out very fast. I managed to get one in my size (small) at the store, on sale for $37.99. 

This dress is super easy to wear. A slightly thicker cotton. I have seen other similar-styled dress but in thin cotton. Even though it may be better for the hot summer, it will show every lump and bump. I have worn this a few times since I got it already. Love it.

    1. sushi is perfect for summer dinners! The Lululemon items are expensive but IMO, they are worth it as I don't have to keep buying other items to replace them. They last for years.

    1. same here, I have been eyeing on the Revas for a good few months. But every time I see them at the store, I want to get them so bad. Feel they are so classic and I can wear them for years and years to come. I got mine with a discount so can justify it a bit.

      Thanks for following, very sweet of you :)
