How do you like to be able to have a custom painted wall for your home? Maybe you’ve been dreaming about having it but can’t imagine how difficult it may be having to hire custom painter or artist to paint just one designated wall and not counting how long it’ll take them to be in and out your home, and the mess and the no-time issue.

I recently found this website called muralsyourway.com that make custom print really achievable in a very easy way – you can even user your own image, how cool is that to be able to personalized your home with your own picture collections?

The installation and removal process is as easy as wallpaper installation and the effect is custom graphic design art, custom photography, art or paintings that you like up on the wall of your designated space. See samples below – you can browse more ideas in muralsyourway.com.

Make up idea for New Year and Valentine’s Day

Posted by editor On February - 14 - 2010

Last December ’09 Elle magazine published this make up collection from MAC Pro senior make up artist, Keri Blair. This collection is to inspired for greeting the new millenium year of 2010. I thought it might be fun to share this found for you who would want to go out on a valentine’s date tonight or to another New Year celebration – the Chinese New Year.


I love the look of that hot pink valentine’s color, it’s nice to give it a try for a night out with your hot date.


And if you want the toned down version – I’d say go with the purple look for an evening out.


Not so much on the bold side? I love this look for fresh look on afternoon walk.

see much more collection from Elle magazine post here. I personally love Blair’s creation. All pictures above are from Elle.


Statement Necklaces

Posted by editor On February - 13 - 2010


I used to think I always have to buy fancy tank tops especially for evening out then after a while people will recognize this one of a kind fancy tank top and can’t wear it again and again to meet up with the same crowd. I don’t know if this is just me but most fashion lovers – they just get tired with the same thing fairly quickly 😉

So I started seeing alternatives that last longer – statement necklaces such as those designed by Ranjana Khan, Vera Wang, Oscar De La Renta, Suzana Dai, etc. I figured these may be more versatile as you can move it around to wear with turtle necks, sexy tank top, or even cocktail dress. It trully adds flair and certainly makes a distinct statement =)

see sample of statement necklaces I am quite a fan of:

Ranjana Khan Black Crystal Bib Necklace – Nieman $880.00

Ranjana Khan Pearl & Crystal Chain Necklace $920.00

Ranjana Khan Pink Necklace

Tom Binns Crystal Necklace from net-a-porter $2,670.00


Move Over California – New Traffic Law effective January 2010

Posted by editor On February - 13 - 2010

“People were not slowing down and it’s very dangerous for the emergency services personnel to be on the side of the road” said Tela Mange, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Public Safety.


So I guess these days if you happen to be driving especially on a highway and overlooking somekind of eye-catching scene and do that rubber-necking look on what’s going on on the side of the road you ought to be very careful about where you do this from – the new law require you to move to the furthest lane possible away from the scene if you slow down and still on the lane closest to the scene WATCH OUT you may be fine!

In California, the “Move-over” law became effective on January 1, 2010.

I’ve got a circulated email message:

I want to let my friends know about the CA move over law.
One of my friend’s son got a ticket on Pleasant Hill coming back from Wal-Mart.
A police car was on the side of the road giving a ticket to someone else.
His son slowed down to pass but did not move into the other lane. The second police car
immediately pulled him over and gave him a ticket. His son said had never heard of the law.
It is a fairly new law that states if any emergency vehicle is on the side of the road, if you are able, you
are to move into the far lane.

The cost of the ticket is $754, with 3 points on your license
and a mandatory court appearance.

However the California’s “move over” law that was implemented in 2007 has stated standard penalties that seems to be exagerated in the circulated email message:

California has had a “Move Over, Slow Down” law for several years. The law that took effect January 1, 2010 made it permanent and added Caltrains trucks to the list of vehicles you must make way for, which includes police cars, fire engines, ambulances and tow trucks. If you see an emergency vehicle on the side of a highway with lights flashing, you must slow down and move into an adjacent lane if it is safe to do so. The fine [for violating this law] is around $146, with one point on your record.

well with that being said don’t move over because of just the fine but do it for the safety of others and yourself as well.
