Mexibead heels by Christian Louboutin
Sometimes wonderful people discover wonderful treasures like these beautiful hand-beaded “Mexibead” heels by Christian Louboutin.

I fall in love once more. The beautiful detailing of these heels, the rainbow of colors, they are a dreamer’s dream.

I think I’ll choose to never take these heels off. Ah thank-you-very-much.

Kawaii International Ep. 03!!

Hey Everyone! I’ve been working on an international TV show called “Kawaii International”. It showcases “kawaii” culture from Japan to all over the world. It is a really fun TV show and every time we learn so much. “Kawaii” means “cute” in Japanese and it has taken off onto it’s own culture with fashion, brands, hair and make-up, accessories, music, and even slang!

Our guests for Ep. 03 are fashion blogger from Malaysia, Cheesie, and fashion model from U.S., Rin Rin.

A fun “kawaii” quiz!

If you thought you might have recognized her, you’re right! It’s fellow Miss X, Misha! I love her new wig brand PLUMB!

With Cheesie! She is so cute and so sweet! Please check out her blog here: http://cheeserland.com/

With Rin Rin! She’s a Cali girl just like me! She was also very cute and sweet! Please check out her blog here: http://ameblo.jp/angel-rinrin/

Look how cute this shoe is!

On Ep. 02 we learned how to make D.I.Y. Kawaii items and Rie-san makes things out of wool. She brought us a start-up kit so we could try it ourselves. Thank you so much!

Please tune into NHK World TV Channel to watch “Kawaii International”!

Hello Posh Spice, I mean Mrs. Beckham

I went to the launch of Victoria Victoria Beckham at Lane Crawford IFC in Hong Kong with the always lovely and fellow Miss X, Ingrid Chen.

I am wearing an Urban Outfitter dress and Zara heels, while Ingrid is wearing a Victoria Victoria Beckham dress.

Doing our best Posh Spice pose! Werk it gurlz!

Mrs. Beckham appeared at Lane Crawford IFC in Hong Kong and walked around the VIP area with everyone following her trying to get a picture with her. She was pretty in person, petit (hard to believe she’s had 4 kids!), well-poised and all I wanted to ask her was to sing “Wannabe”! hehe She stayed for about 5 minutes and made a short speech about her new line before she was escorted by security to her private room.

It was a fun night with free-flowing Moet Chandon and all you can eat gelato. After I met up with friends and hit the town! I love going to Hong Kong and especially when my trips coincide with fabulous fashion parties! Until next time…

Trouble Maker

I like when Britney says, “I can be your treble, baby you can be my bass”.

Being a trouble maker is not as easy as you would think. Wandering the streets at night looking for people and places to cause trouble, ignoring all of the rules, fighting with strangers, drinking (for free), breaking hearts. You may think I am a sweet, innocent girl but I am not. As you can see I am a 100% genuine BAD@$$. Don’t get in my way because you will get hurt.

Ok so I’m actually not a total trouble maker but aren’t we all? And at least I can pretend to be in my super cute crop top from Forever21.

FENDI x MASERATI

I was invited to the Italian Embassy in Tokyo to attend the world tour of Italian giants collaboration FENDI and Maserati. The party was filled with foreign diplomats, CEOs, celebrities, models, stylists, car and fashion enthusiasts but none could compete with the main event. In the middle of the room was the beautiful Maserati Gran Cabrio with FENDI interior and details. The color was a beautiful blend of blueish gray with gold highlights. I’ve never driven a car like this (and probably never will) but it is definitely a fantasy. Fit for men and women, the FENDI x Maserati has something special. There’s only a limited amount of these babies made so if you like what you see, go get it NOW!

Of course, head-to-toe in Fendi. I love my black Fendi dress. It was pretty sexy because it was see-through. I wore a little black bikini underneath.

We ran into our wonderful friend Elizabeth.

Now for the main attraction…du-dun!!!

With famous Japanese stylist Don Konishi-san.

It was a wonderfully glamorous night. Thank you FENDI and Maserati for showing us that fashion and cars DO go hand-in-hand.
