Love this famous Chinese artist who creates the funniest pictures of old China culture. He now does vases for a faction of the price of his paintings. I may need to give one a home :)
Surprise visit from @jessieblaze who hopped up from her HK work trip to say hello to me and Shanghai!!
More pictures from our weekend in Beijing. A delicious duck dinner at Li Qun, shopping for pearls with my favorite jeweler Joe, and the Temple of Heaven. A great visit with @xodanarae!
Sunny day at The Great Wall! (at 慕田峪长城 Mutianyu Great Wall)
Forbidden City at Sunset #beijingweekend (at 景山公园 Jing Shan Park)
Morning at Chinese market. Giving sister Dana a first taste of Shanghai. (at Shanghai)
Peking Duck dinner with all the trimmings…
Christmas (a holiday that has no religious value with most in China) has arrived to Starbucks. Serving up Green Tea Latte and other Chinese favorites the line is always long. They are also playing the obligatory holiday music. I’m the only one in the store who knows “Jingle Bell Rock.” Just imagine the reverse, going into a Chinese tea house in the US with Chinese music and decorations to spend $5 on a cup - it’s rather crazy!
My favorite nail polishes for fall! I received a new stash of Essie when friends came to visit from NYC - you can’t find it anywhere here. From top Zoya in Hazel (sparkly blue, gold), Essie in Cashmere Bathrobe (sparkly grey, silver), Essie in For the Twill of It (my absolute fave, that looks like the inside of a shell from the beach the ones with green and purple shimmery hues) and KO in Forest (a rich matte). I can never decide which one to wear :)
Mini apple pies for breakfast. With Jake gone in the US on business I can eat them all and no one will stop me! #dangerous
