My 3rd white

                                                                  My 3rd white
            What inspire me to have an ensemble of white in five days is when I saw in AOL about how to wear white in five days. In there photos the model is so skinny and young. So I thought I might as well create my own ensemble for my age. Here is my third white creation the 1st white and 2nd white is here for you to take a look. And remember in fashion you can create you own get up, and it doesn't take an expensive clothing or accessories to look like a million bucks. Be yourself and be happy. What matters is what comes from inside second is the outside "stuff".

Yellow Rose

We need to see colors right? Christmas season is done and gone and so the Christmas colors are also kept away. I was looking at the sunrise today and the color is beautiful. But could not get a good photos since it is behind tall trees. Today, I decided to look for beautiful flowers taken last year in my archive and found this beautiful yellow rose. These is the winner in the Rose Show last year. I didn't know that these particular variety of rose is the original rose, hmmmm, didn't know that. Do you?

Beautiful Arts

Last Friday hubby and I went to Detroit Institute of Arts to see Rembrandt and the face of Jesus. But when we arrived there tickets are sold out. Good thing the exhibition will last till February 12, 2012. So since we are there and outside was raining hard we opted to see the other arts exhibits and galleries. I am amazed of so many beautiful paintings it was displayed. Somebody did tell each painting to who paint it and what the painting is all about. I think if you look the painting closely, you could tell who and what stories these came from. Except the second mosaic the photo on the left at the bottom, it's not a story from the bible. It's about a boy who is madly in love to this goddess...forgot the name of the boy and the goddess. ^_^

Just Chilling

Today was a perfect day for Winter. We don't have snow and the temperature goes almost up to 50F!! Can you believe that? It feels like spring. My friend was cleaning her yard when she saw a flower blossoming in her yard. What?? In winter? Well I think that flower thought it's spring hehe. 

Anyway, I was just chilling today I even didn't do anything just being a couch potato watching my favorite cartoon show Kung Fu Panda: Legend. I can go on the whole day watching these cartoon because I love it. What about you what you do today?
