Hi LOVEs!!!! Happy Easter Weekend!!

Any fun plan? I am going to my friend's birthday party later today, and I am super excited because I've known her for a while through social media but never met in person!!

Today's post is all about my new chic glasses. Now the technology has changed our lives and we CAN'T live without it. AT ALL. How in the world could I blog without my laptop? I have to admit that my life could be boring without my iPhone. It's sad to say that, yet it's true. But, did you know that artificial light and blue rays are coming from your computer screens, tablets, cell phones, and other kinds of devices? The worst part is.... it is harmful to your eyes.  So


, one of my new favorite eyewear brands, is just so awesome that they have launched undoubtedly fashionable glasses that protect our eyes called



. Their glasses have lenses with a filter that shields your eyes from excessive blue light emanating from the digital screes around. How cool is this!!?

I decided to go with


glasses as my first pair, and can I just say how adorable these are?! A pair entirely made out of acetate, with a long elaborated work. I indeed adore the brown tortoiseshell. Even though I particularly prefer oversized eyewear due to my facial structure, but these ones perfectly flame my face. Ever since I've been using these glasses, my eyes feel less tired. I literally carry them around with me in my purse wherever I go because I am totally a iPhone and computer freak. I am so glad I got them! The prices are super wallet-friendly, and the quality is killer. We love technology, but it should be safe, right?  If you haven't had a chance to check them out yet, I bet you will surely love them! 

Have a lot of fun on Easter!

Are You #LookBatterNaked Enough?

Today's ALC (AikA's Love Closet) is a bit of different than usual, brining you more of the "healthy & athletic" side of fashion!
If you have followed me on my Insta (If you haven't, please follow me!), you probably know that I've been teaming up with David Barton Gym for the #LookBetterNaked challenge!

Back in June, I was super thrilled for the start of summer. I had been working very hard as a flag performer for Seafair, the biggest and most exiting summer festivals in Seattle. I always wanted to work out to get into better shape because I wasn't very satisfied with how I looked at the time, especially around my belly and arms. Nonetheless, because there were so many crazy things going on in my life, I never made going to a gym or even workout at home a priority.  For the parade at Seafair  I had to march nearly 2 miles continuously, so I seriously needed to build some muscles to be ready for that!
So I was very excited for this great offer/opportunity/challenge that David Barton Gym gave me! It was such a P E R F E C T time!

With my surprise (Like a BIG surprise!), they are not a gym AT ALL! Firstly, they are located in the center of high-end fashion brand shops, which makes me feel very luxurious every time I go to "workout!" Where in the world does a gym make you feel that way? Then, right after you step into the gym, the breathtaking futuristically architectural entrance welcomes you with upbeat DJ music, and their atmosphere really reminds me of a fancy club! (Yes, I used to love going out every Friday and Saturday!) Every single place you go, including the shower rooms and changing room, you might forget that you are actually at the gym for workout!! 
Here are the pictures you can peek Seattle David Barton Gym...
On my first day, outward of the gym and me in it :)

DBG entrance, amazing isn't it?

WOW inside lounge, loving the long sofa!

So now... you believe what I was just talking about? (More photos here if you'd like)
Thanks to what David Barton Gym offers, I've totally enjoyed for the last three months of my workout there. I wish I could have gone more often (because I live far away from the gym. Three hour round-way bus commuting is not so adequate to go to a gym...) and could have more time to utilize all the services I could have taken advantage of, such as group sessions, yoga and pilates classes, and even a steaming room!

But, here are some photos I snapped during my gym time at DBG!

 One of my my regular workouts!

Fun boxing!! 

With an 'Uhhh gimme a break' silly face... :p

But first, let me take a selfie :) 

And... you can't forget workout #OOTDs!! 

After 3 months at David Barton Gym, I can totally admit that I have successfully transformed my body to the point that I envisioned it. To commemorate this success, I decided to photoshoot in TRIANGL underwear and in an outfit that highlights my abs! 

To be honest with you, I have actually never embraced my body as much as I do right now. I think I mentioned several times before that I always felt inferior or incomplete due to having a long torso and short legs. I still have trouble completely accepting them, however, throughout the workout experience with David Barton Gym, I finally learned how I can make myself happier with the areas I don't like. You can definitely built self-assurance if you work hard and try to strongly believe that you can achieve to do that, no matter what. Clear picturing that 'you can do it' is the key to success, and don't forget to give yourself a round of applause when you accomplish! The confidence and inner happiness is all in 'YOU', and putting in great effort always pays off at the end, no matter how long it will take...
I really want to say thank you to the team at David Barton Gym for this fun and amazing adventure! If you happen to be looking for a gym or are getting tired of the gym you are currently going and want a new place,  David Barton Gym should be at the top of your list of places to check out!!

Definitely I will miss going to DBG!
Hopefully your have an amazing weekend ♥

Charming Charlie Grand Opening Event!!!


Today's post is all about a new store named Charming Charlie which opened in Redmond, WA!!!
 I had never heard of this brand until I received an invitation for the Grand Opening event, which is really too bad for me! Now that I have been there, I really adore Charming Charlie now!!!
The new store had its launch last weekend (Oct 15th) at the Redmond Town Center. The exterior is quite lovely with its bright pink door and wide glazed windows -- as you can see in the first picture. 

Before I start talking about my shopping experience at this shop, allow me to introduce Charming Charlie a bit...

"Charming Charlie made its debut in 2004 with one very colorful and clear mission: help very woman, everywhere, find her fabulous. We're crazy for color. We live for sparkle. We thrive on making a statement. Why? Because we know accessories have the power to transform both your outfit and your outlook.  Jewelry, handbags, eyewear, scarves, shoes, and more all grouped together in your favorite colors -- thousands of accessories in one store! Plus friendly Charmeres ready to help you unleash your one-of-a-kind style -- we call it finidhing your fabulous. From the tip of your tiara to the point of your pumps, Charming Charlie wants to bring our your most fabulous, fierece and fun self every single day. " (Cited from

You know how much I love to accessorize, and I really love how all of the accessories and jewelry are displayed throughout their store! I've never seen a store that organized by color the way they do. The layout allows you to mix several pieces together in similar shades. For example, you could layer a few ( or MORE) necklaces in the same colors but in totally different textures and shapes... How fun is that? To a person who loves layering like I do, this store is definitely now on the regular visit list. The sales reps are also very friendly and inviting, and they are all well-dressed with Charming Charlie pieces!!!! I kept asking them the same question: "I love the necklace you are wearing! Where can I get it?" They are like walking mannequins! lol

  I am very fascinated with the store displays as well. The stunning shiny chandeliers, white boxy in-walls with tons of lovely items, European-inspired huge mirrors... I was very satisfied and overjoyed just as I strolled around the store! As you shop, you will surely be inspired thanks to the thousands of accessories! It was so extreme that I had so much trouble deciding what I SHOULD buy! Their well thought out displays give you plenty of awesome tips on how you can mix and put accessories and jewelry together!!!!
Have you ever felt that you were looking for something but could't find that perfect right thing you really wanted?
Well, you can say goodbye to that feeling now! Charming Charlie can solve it right away. Now you can go to their store because CC is where you can find exactly what you are looking for...

Here are the items I bought, and I love every piece so much!
They are offering a Buy One, Get One Free deal, so I took advantage of it to buy the gold necklace and earrings and saved some money! :) 

Did  you like what I got from Charming Charlie???
You can buy some of the items online as well!

(Available in 5 colors: Black, Dark Blue, Orange, Red, & Wine)
(Available in 3 colors: Black, Light Brown & Light White)

A special thanks to Kimberly for the invitation to have me tour the store!
I wanted to share this little gem of a store in case you hadn't heard of Charming Charlie  and I hope you can be inspired by my shopping experience there! Make sure to check them out online or/and in store if you live near by them! (Here is the direct link to STORE LOCATOR!!)

Have a great one!
