Riki & Brien were married November 1st on a beautiful fall day in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. The outdoor ceremony was framed by an industrial landscape and the colorful fall leaves. Guests were warmed by bon fires & vowes written by the bride & groom.

The reception took place in the adjacent warehouse converted loft where the bridal party spent the weekend. The fall theme carried through the entire event; centerpieces made of cheery tree twigs, chocolate brown table cloths, and bouquets made of cabbage, mint, vibrant lillies & wrapped in feathers. Instead of a cake, the couple constructed a multi tiered tower of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts & the food was made from local ingredients purchased at the West Side Market.

China celebrated its 60th anniversary a few weekends ago.  So I took a long weekend and celebrated by journeying into mainland China…to CHENGDU, in the heart of Sichuan Province (about 3 hours from HK by plane).

Sichuan/Szechuan is famous for its SPICY FOOD. The kind of intense in your nostrils, teary eyed HOT that numbs your whole mouth. They also still practice some of the most elaborate rituals surrounding tea drinking customs in all of China … and are you ready?? Most importantly, Sichuan is home to China’s PANDAS.

I had to be torn away. I bought a panda costume from the gift shop, and now am going to be cuddly and huggable and loveable for Halloween. hahaha. Its True.

The premiere issue of Lonny magazine is now available. If you are like me the closing of domino magazine was devastating —especially since when I purchased their latest book it was supposed to come with a free subscription! So far I can say I like Lonny equally as much as its predecessor. It has the same aesthetic, design sensibility & now it even includes more fashion along with longer articles. My ONLY complaint is that it is an online publication (at least it doesn’t make those fake page turing sound like NYLON did, yuk). There is something to be said for the tangible periodical. It is too hard to look up close at the pictures and you can’t exactly pick it up and read it any time. I’m crossing my fingers for a future print edition.

On my recent trip to Amsterdam I was very inspired by the picturesque city.
