Friday's Fancies

Signing off early this week in preparation for Chinese New Year. I'm anticipating a day filled with frenzied cleaning and non-stop cooking in time for the traditional New Year's Eve feast on saturday. To anyone else out there celebrating, I hope your weekend is full of good food, good company and lots of red pockets (in the sense that you'll be receiving and not giving, ha!). Here's a few photos to sum up the week. Happy friday!


A new read my wonderful cousin sent over for my birthday, accompanied by the sweetest note. After a quick flip through and I am already mesmerized by Coco's photos and Karl Largerfeld's original drawings. 



Welcome to music city, Nashville. This is one of my favourite views of the city seen from the interstate. It's amazing what a glorious sunset does for the city and the soul. 



Absolutely in love with opaque white mani's lately. They not only match with absolutely everything, but is also flattering on all skin types and provides the perfect contrast to your outfit. The perfect non-colour, no? The colour here is Blanc by Essie. 



Highlight of this week was taking the kids to watch their dad parachute out of a c17. This was the first time they've gone to watch where they were actually aware of their surroundings. Needless to say, the rest of the day was filled with excited chatter about planes and parachutes and dad. 



I recently came across giant-sized Pocky at my local asian supermarket and let me tell you, my world has completely changed!

Happy Chinese New Year Jenee!!! I love the customs. I read about them 3 years ago and everyone should practice them. It's a great way to start the new year. Very positive. It's work, but definitely beneficial. Karl Lagerfeld can draw his butt off. HAhaha Great book!

I hope that you had a wonderful new year's eve celebration!! I also discovered giant pockey a few years ago in Japan (I've never seen it in the states) and I was instantly OBSESSED. In fact, I brought it home for my husband as a gift. Now, I'm going to have to make it a mission to find it here! :)
