I spent much of my childhood years celebrating Chinese New Year dressed in a red and gold qípáo. Having since moved away from home, slipping into a traditional qípáo, though sleek, felt more impractical for casual gatherings.  Though far from home, I hold Chinese New Year traditions close to my heart and throughout the year, hunt for modern pieces with red accents.

This Ted Baker jacket in particular is to die for!  A jacket so perfect, it could sit in your closet as a stand-alone piece of art.  Reinvented with lux fabrications, detailed embroidery, and rich pops of color, this bomber incorporates elements found in traditional Chinese attire with a chic modern silhouette. 
Once an aviators staple jacket, the bomber has made it’s way into countless fashion houses and closets worldwide… and it seems to be a trend that’s here to stay.  This timeless piece will pair with just about anything in your closet. 



I pieced this outfit together mixing textures and fabrications.  Silky black loungewear juxtaposed with an intricate jacket was the perfect balance of yin and yang.  The jacket could have just as easily been dressed up or down - thrown over a chic dress for a night out or worn with jeans for a casual everyday look. 


Chinese New Years is coming up this week, hope you’re celebrating in style with some red, glitter, and a lux statement piece!

Two hours away from the glittering skyscrapers, extravagant venues, and neon lights of cosmopolitan Shanghai, I found myself in what many refer to as the Venice of the East.  A stark contrast from the glamour, excess, and grandeur of the city that never sleeps, lies thousands of years of heritage, history, and culture delicately preserved in a latticework of canals, cobblestone roads, and lantern lit streets. 

Secretly tucked away from modern day China’s inexhaustible chase for wealth, speed, and fame, Suzhou will mesmerize you with its waterscape, intricate gardens, and soothing energy.  It’s no wonder Chinese say, “上有天堂下有蘇杭

Tong Li, in particular enchanted us with its ethereal beauty as we glided through the canal listening to the ebb and flow of water meld with the clamors of everyday life.  Warmly cuddled next to mom, I sat by the riverside and reveled in the quiet beauty before us.  The sunset gently kissed the river and blanketed our view with warm dreamy hues.

A non-invasive beauty treatment that exfoliates, extracts, hydrates, and protects skin-giving you the most gorgeous after facial glow, the HydraFacial treatment is now my go to for a quick skin pick me up!  It’s a 30-40 minute facial treatment that leaves your pores thoroughly cleansed, skin absolutely glowing, and you- feeling refreshed. 

I’m a sucker for facial treatments, and will try every beauty treatment out there.  As I’ve hit my late 20’s, it takes more than a basic at home skincare regimen to get that youthful glow.  I’ve been on the search for a facial that complements my at home skincare schedule and had the pleasure of trying the HydraFacial treatment with Dr. Gina Danesh at Danesh Dermotology in her Beverly Hills office. 

The treatment is for everyone, and caters to all skin types addressing concerns like acne, congestion, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, hyper-pigmentation, and sun damage.

various tips that accompany each step

Gina cleaned my skin with a wipe, then began the multi step treatment:


1.     Vortex Cleansing:
What it does>>  Gently exfoliates the skin-removing dead skin cells and sebum
Personal Experience>> Felt like a cool, wet, gentle microdermabrasion with long fast strokes

2.     Acid Peel: 
What it does>>  Salicylic and Glycolic acid mixture (GlySal) loosen pore debries and dirt – essentially prevents formation of acne
Personal Experience>> Felt like light wet dabs with suction.  Painless, and rather comfortable



3.     Vortex Extraction
What it does>>  suction extracts blackheads and impurities from your pores
Personal Experience >>  Stronger suction is felt, but still painless.  Gina went over my chin and forehead a few times as I had more congestion there.

4.     Vortex Fusion
What it does>>  Detoxes, rejuvenates, and restores skin by infusing antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acids into the skin
Personal Experience>>  Personally my favorite step!  After the vortex extraction, my skin felt lighter and cleaner.  Gina went over my freshly cleansed skin with feather like strokes.  I could feel the cool antioxidants permeate my skin


Upon finishing, Gina showed me the bottle containing my impurities.  Floating in the tube was dead skin, debris, and congestion of sorts.  Disgusting knowing that much gunk was in my pores, but satisfying seeing it all extracted!



As an add on, Gina did an LED treatment with red and blue light.  Red to treat fine lines & blue for congestion and acne. 


The treatment was complete in less than an hour, and my skin felt amazing!  I could feel it breathing as I stepped out of the clinic.  My pores and blackheads were visibly diminished, skin left tighter, and overall, everything felt smooth, supple, and moist.  I attended an event later that night, and had even more of a glow the next day as my makeup effortlessly glided on.


Thank you Dr. Gina Danesh for such a pleasant experience!  She's professional, highly knowledgable, and an overall amazing doctor.  You can book your facial at Danesh Dermatology by calling (310) 850-5441.
