NOVEMBER 2016 - JANUARY 2017

Say Goodbye to 2016 and Get a Fresh Start in 2017.

SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER 2016

From China to Switzerland, to the United States, from my hometown, Hunan to Lucerne, to Hawaii, to New York and back to San Francisco, my life was fulfilled with travels and adventures in September and October.
 
Traveling with family or close friends is really good experience, perhaps the best of experience in our lives. The only part I don’t like is food cravings and skipping workout as these are really challenges for staying in shape while traveling. I am still searching solutions to this problem for myself and for those who experience the similar, especially in the upcoming holiday seasons.  Wait for my updates, I will uncover this topic for you and our loyal readers! 

MAY & JUNE 2016

May and June flew by this year and Vyvella has published 10 posts altogether. Though my blog was not as productive as we usually are, my personal life was filled with complements:

1.     I took a long vacation in China with my parents and brother. Originally planned as a three-week vacation, we extended it to one month because I decided to take my Driver License Exam in Beijing and I finally got my Driver License in China!

2.     We also celebrated my niece's (brother’s daughter's) first full month of life with our large family.

3.     I travelled with my family in Hunan, a mountainous province and my beloved hometown, which is located in South Central China. We also travelled to the Yunnan province, which is located in southwestern China. It's known for being a deeply multicultural area. I have taken lots of beautiful scenic and exotic pictures of my journey and will definitely share them with you all in no time.

4.     I found that I developed sleeping problems earlier but I am searching solutions for myself and for those who experience similar problems. Currently, I am putting them into effect.

5.     As for every month’s new topic, in May I shared the pictures and stories of my two-year old son under the category “Vivian->Lifestyle” on Mother’s Day, The Team Member Makes Me a Better Person. In June, we posted Sports pictures and stories under “Lifestyle” as well.

6.     Lastly but most importantly, we flew from coast to coast last weekend to attend 2016 Copa America Centenario Final Match: Argentina vs Chile at Metlife Stadium, New Jersey. This was the first time my husband, my son, and I, watched a soccer game and the first time we were able to see Messi’s performance so closely. It is definitely an unforgettable experience.  We all love soccer and enjoy sports. How about you?

Wait for July and we will uncover a brand new topic for you and our loyal readers!

APRIL 2016

In April, Vyvella has brought you to a beautiful spring journey, starting with the "Escape to Joshua Tree" to the "Burgundy In Desert” at the Death Valley National Park. Smell the lavender fields in Provence, feel the California sunshine in Filoli, and enjoy the "Cherry Blossom and Youth,” a reminiscent about my old days in Washington, DC.

We also had a glimpse of Oscar de la Renta Retrospective at the de Young museum in San Francisco.  Known as the “most French of American designers,” de la Renta’s iconic looks embody beauty, confidence, and optimism in fashion.

Make sure you are not missing out on Vivian’s 15 looks this month, including the chic "Flight Attendant" style, "Turkish Rug Dress", "White Morning", "Floral Afternoon", and the elegant "Black Evening" to name a few.

Keep your eyes out for May’s excitement, my birthday month. The new topic will surprise you!

MARCH 2016

March is a busy month. We’ve had two icon posts about the classic Little Red Dress (LRD) and the Backpack. We also have posted 15 of Vivian’s Looks from denim, floral, paisley print, vintage and red cocktail dresses to oversized, camel, houndstooth coats and the bomber Jacket as well as the sailor style, black and white, French-girl style.

“What we all want in life: to travel, fall in love, and be happy.” As promised, Vyvella will add a new topic for April. April will be about travel with love and happiness!
