"Life is too short to have boring hair."
I was often asked if I would try pastel hair color like other bloggers did. I said, yes and no. I am obsessed with purple and pink hair which totally channels my “inner unicorn”, so Yes. But my hair is super dried and fragile - it is not going to survive a few times of brightening and dying to achieve the pastel colors. Like other girls, I am super busy (or lazy) so I won't be able to visit my hairdresser every 6 weeks to do my roots and bring the pastel color back. So also it’s also a No.
Until I met this beauty Larisa (@larisadoll), the owner of Larisa Love Salon in Studio City, a super star hairstylist who mastered the unicorn hair game, I didn't know I had a better option - a temporary hair color by using Joico Color Butter. There are six different colors to choose from, pink, purple, red, titanium, blue and green (all my obsessions are here). The color is highly pigmented and surprisingly nourishing, almost like a conditioner or hair mask. The color only lasts for 10 shampoos or two weeks. So, I won't be worrying about if I pick a wrong color. It’s even better if you already colored your hair to pastel. Joico Color Butter can easily bring your color back when it's fading after a couple of weeks.
At this exclusive preview event, Larisa walked me through the six colors and I got to try colors on paper (the spin art) and extension hairs. I mixed the pink and purple with a little bit of transition. I knew it would still keep it natural so titanium will be my top choice. I also tried it on super light extension. The titanium butter achieved a silver shade which will work on slightly faded bleached hair. It was a cute event where we met like-minded people, social media stars, models and bloggers. I picked titanium color and I can’t wait to try it at home.
“I make shoe contact before eye contact.”
My girlfriends complained that I made their shopping list too long. When I updated my wardrobe each season, I liked to start with shoes. I felt that a good pair of shoes makes me feel more powerful than beautiful. I am not very short but standing in high heels definitely feels greater. A few weeks ago, I saw one of my favorite fashion Instagrammers (@marianna_hewitt) posted her beautiful looks with the same nude shoes (the two upper right photos). I was so obsessed with these sandals. This is definitely a hero item! I then found this item at a shoe brand GuiltySoles who made the hottest and most Instagrammable shoes at very modest price.

It's almost the first day of Fall (isn’t it 9/22?)! I can't believe summer is over, so soon... When it’s still over 75 degree in West Hollywood, the fashioninstas are gearing up for the fashion week month. For me, good thing about fall is that I can have fun layering my favorite items with literally no sweat:P This week I am very busy with a few SS18 fashion weeks in Los Angeles. So much great inspiration on and off runway, like always, it builds up my shopping cart and wishlist...
This time I would like to share this simple fall look that almost got all my obsessions for this season - embroidery, kimono, floral and mesh sheath...It's all about the incredible details. Are these almost all the hit hashtags? The more, the merrier. We never get enough key words and hashtags but how?
