Vietnamese Coloring Page on a Front Cover of a Language Book

I got a nice e-mail from someone today asking permission to use one of my Chinese & Vietnamese free coloring pages   on a book their company is in the process of publishing.

They're a moving company that prepared a small language book for their clients moving from one country to China or Vietnam as a gift.

I think it's really nice of them to do that for their clients. I imagine it will be very useful.

This is I think the specific picture they want to uhmm borrow,

This is a very nice way of putting my collection of free coloring pages to good use. I encourage you to browse through them and let the kids choose whatever they want to color, print and have fun!

How much does Chelsea Clinton's Wedding Costs?

Are you ready for this? A whopping $2 Million. $750,000 of that is for the catering of 500 guests and $100,000 of that is for lighting--oh  yes, lighting as in for the mood, for the ambiance.  And our dear Chelsea is wearing an Oscar dela Renta gown.
But I don't think $2M is frightening for the parents because for the Clintons alone, their worth is said to be $34M.

For us mere mortals, we can have an equally memorable wedding sans the millions. You just have to be wise with your budget and look for quality yet affordable wedding pieces that will fit perfectly on your wedding theme.

Browse through our affordable flower girl dresses and see how much you will save.

Summer Wedding Color Inspiration Board: Yellow, Green & Orange

I have two inspiration board to present with a yellow, green and orange summer wedding colors. I love yellow as it brings so much life to anything. Orange is so vibrant that the color just pops out and draws you to the richness of its color. Green is a nice touch that complements everything else. It's the ring that binds the colors all together.

And perfect for this specific color theme is a yellow flower girl dress! or an ivory dress with yellow sash on the waist.
Dress code: D067 (this is actually on sale!!!)

Just remember with your wedding preparations, it's easy to go overboard because you feel super excited so it's a good idea to keep someone with you and tell you if you're going overboard. :)

Happy Wedding preps!

Chelsea Clinton's Wedding Plans a Hush Hush

From the wedding dress down to the venue of the wedding on July 31 of the Clinton-Mezvinsky wedding plans are covered with so much secrecy that guests would only know of the exact location a week before the wedding.

Read more of here.

I am really curious if there are flower girls included on her entourage because of all the talks I've heard, none of them were about flower girls or even flower girl dresses.  I would also like to see the wedding theme or motif, any thoughts?

Random and Surprise Wedding Reception

Flower girls in cute dresses are not included in this video, but this surprise and free wedding reception for a random New York couple (that just got married in City Hall) is still a happy occasion indeed. Left me watching with a goofy smile on my face. I love the bride's white dress and the groom's bespoke suit. The bridesmaids in purple and the gentlemen in tuxes also look very nice...

This random wedding reception was thrown by Improv Everywhere.

What a lucky couple! A great start to spending forever together.

Children's clothing US sizes to European sizes


I've been getting plenty of inquiries regarding the differences or the conversion of US sizes to European sizes. Honestly I've tried searching for a standard conversion but I failed. So what I did was, I put centimeter conversion on the size chart since countries outside US use them instead of inches.

I think since the US, European and UK sizes vary too much, it would be a good idea to measure your child's old dress and use those measurements to compare to whatever size chart is provided on the dress you are eyeing.

How to do this properly?

Lay down the old dress on a flat surface and start measuring. Now it's upto you to make adjustments to make the size bigger so your child can use the dress longer as she grows.
If in case you have something on the size chart conversion, please do share them :) In the meanwhile, this conversion table might be of help:
