Oakland zoo and Lake Chalet

Yes, it has been a while for me posting about my love for Oakland, but I still do and still exploring. So recently our friends were here and we went to a restaurant that is right down the street from us, Lake Chalet. Love this place. They have an outside patio and have a happy hour from 3-6 pm, and 9 pm every day. They also brew their own beer there! So now , I will be taking all our guests who come to see us to that restaurant!

Another place we explored is the Oakland zoo. Really nice zoo. It doesn't compare to San Diego zoo. But it definitely beats L.A. zoo! They have monkeys, elephants, zebras, OH MY! Dan and I had a great time. Exploring around Oakland had this place a hidden gem. So many cool places and still finding places! More to come!

50's swimsuit

So 50's swimsuit. I have always been attracted to that type of swimsuit. Last year I was searching everywhere for the perfect 50's looking swimsuit. I think it's because I get really self-conscious of my body and feel that this type of swimsuit is sporting a sexy look and not being over the top or revealing so much. That is my problem with teeny tiny bikinis. There are some parts of my body that I wouldn't want anyone to that is why I was attracted to 50's swimsuit. Some collection of these images just shows how sexy a 50s swimsuit can be.

Sporting yellow. Super cute.

Minus the hair, her red polka dot is super sexy.

Dance party!

Back in the days bathing suit.

So last year, this is what my swimsuit looks like, only in red. Now this is such a great suit especially your stomach is not looking so great. This hides majority of your chubs. So recently, my husband's mom found a swimsuit that her mother use to wear. A classic 50s swimsuit! I loved it!

Look how amazing this swimsuit looks! Tried it on, loved it! Now I rarely wear bathing suits, but this suit, I can wear it everyday...just lounging it..all the time.

So my essentials for the summer. A huge tote bag (yes, found my big black bag and its from H and M), my dad's hat, and 50's bathing suit!! Bring it on summer!!

Letty Funky Fabric

So my friend asked me to look up fabrics...she found this cool retro chair and wanted an amazing fabric that go with it. Her color scheme is blue, orange, and yellow. Of course, if someone ask me to find it, I will not sleep or rest until I found first place I look...Etsy.

The place that really stood out for me on Etsy is Fresh modern Fabric. Her fabric is that retro look she's going after and had really cool fabric designs.

I thought this was a cute look and had different colors.

Very retro look and thought either the greenish yellow or the blue would look awesome with the chair

Sometimes a solid bold color will make the chair make it look more elegant and funky. Just a thought.

I thought this look was awesome. Had somewhat the colors she was looking for, but what really stood out is the geometric pattern! Love this.

Another etsy store I was looking at is Qiana Lee Pucel Graham.

Fish fabric with the color blue, orange and yellow. Great price!

And lastly, sewfreshfabrics.
Love the lines...just would look cool on the chair.
Again, one unique pattern with two of the colors she was looking for would really stand out.
This one is called Zen Garden Sherbert.
Mingle Leaf Stripe fabric. Going with the color scheme.

Oh and if you go on design sponge, it shows before and after pictures of chairs that were upholstered. Thought they were awesome.


Oh my love for art...Museum of Modern Art is one of my favorite art museum. I went to San Francisco MOMA and New York MOMA. I even shop there! For my husband's wedding gift I gave him a cool watch and for the maid of honor i gave her a funky cool necklace (which are no longer on their website).

But they have the most coolest home accessories that I check out every chance I get!

Ultra-flat Multicolor Wall Clock. Gives a room more color..
Table Linens. Again, I love color...

Garland light
. Something unique and different you could put in your bedroom, living room..

Tower of clips organizer. Really cute and smart design to hold keys, cards, receipts.

And I personally want this. Index chopping board. It is so freaking cool!
