Holiday Vacation Must Have – Melissa Shoes

Everyone is wrapping their holiday gifts right now. I know this is the gifts season, but if you have other plans than going back home for Christmas with family, such as… A Getaway Vacation! Oh yeah, that is the best. I have many friends who choose to celebrate the holiday with parents at Thanksgiving, and go to have a nice vacation in this longer holiday. Why not? You deserve a completely relaxing getaway a full year’s work! One year is a long time, we should totally cherish this wonderful opportunity to enjoy the Summer in the Winter.

Dress nice, please!

Not only for beautiful beach photos, but also for a beautiful yourself.

I will recommend you to carry Melissa Shoes with you. For a colorful, joyful and stylish vacation you are expecting for a year. First, let’s see some beach styles.

One for you, one for him.

Nothing is more than sweet to wear the same style with your lover. Getting a pair of Melissa for yourself and for him in the same style but different colors!

Melissa Papete + Rider


Two classics in one. In Papete + Rider Melissa Shoes brings a symbol of comfort and attitude to life in plastic. The pattern on the insole is an exclusive combination of both brands’ logos that translates the essence of their collab. Velcro closure means easy on and easy off, whether you’re braving the city streets or kicking back at the beach.

This style is one of my favorites. I have the clear one for myself. You can wear nice-designed socks with this cute shoes. But of course you can also just wear with bear feet on the beach!

Melissa Possession


It’s Melissa’s legit jelly shoe, originally a hit in the 90s and now back with details in the sole and an extra comfy insole. Colors are transparent and sizing ranges up to 43/44, so everyone can share in the nostalgia.

Simple but cute, then I will recommend this sandal. It is very very comfortable with a simple look, but it is the simple design makes it can match all the types of clothes, no matter shorts or dresses.

Melissa Mar Sandal

Classic, basic, and super comfortable. Mar was a success in platform, heel, and wedge versions and this season it’s available as a flat. Its minimalist design stands out in lavender and bicolor versions.

Girls always have another pair of shoes in their luggages, which are definitely high heels. Melissa Shoes also has comfy high heels for you, that you can be beauty-beauty on your high heels to enjoy the Margarita nightlife at beach bars!

This season, Melissa has the newest styles from their Winter 18 “Open Vibes” collection – introducing the Melissa “Shift” – a bold new square -toed, block heel in an array of retro colors. The shoes are lined with padded insoles, and together with the square toe/block heel combo, these are crazy comfortable!

Melissa Shift


The perfect heel – tall, closed, and a single piece. With its square toe, Shift has foam padding for extra comfort all day, or maybe all night, long.

All the color choices are not difficult for matching. This time, I chose Orange! No worry, Orange can be a nice color for all your cute clothes in this design. It is a color can bring you happiness and a lovely mood! Sunshine is always around you.

As always, all Melissa shoes and accessories are sustainably made using recycled and recyclable plastic – and therefore they’re always 100% vegan and waterproof! This season also features new designer collabs from Marine Serre, Comme des Garçons, the Campana Brothers, Disney, Vivienne Westwood, Jason Wu – and more!

Gift For Him – World’s Bestselling Smart Wallet – Ekster

For the last minute gift hunting, I believe you still struggle with the gifts for him. So do I. But now, I have a wonderful gift idea for you to consider. As you know, every man loves technology, they love studying new things, and love using smart products. We have so many smart products already been very popular on market such as smart toothbrush, smart earphones… This time, let us talk something different – A smart wallet.

After raising over $1,000,000 in their previous crowd-funding campaign, Ekster®, the world’s largest smart wallet brand, has launched their third-generation product line. This time they have engineered both the slimmest- and the first voice-activated smart wallet to date.

Owners can now ring their wallet, find it on a map or even make use of the widespread Chipolo® community to help locate their missing belongings. Battery issues are no longer an issue due to Ekster’s patented solar-powered tracking solution, which on a full charge can last up to 2 whole months. These RFID-blocking wallets are held together by handcrafted premium leather for a luxury look and feel and provide instant card access at the click of a button.

The First Voice-activated Smart Wallet

Ekster’s products are now compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. This means you can now locate your wallet or phone using your smart speaker or even just use voice command on your phone using either of the two apps. Your assistant can make your wallet ring, or it can tell you where it was last seen on a map. All you need to do is install the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa app and follow the simple steps to enable Chipolo for them. 

The First Solar-Charged Smart Wallet

“This is the first solar-charged smart wallet on the market, which means you won’t ever have to charge or replace your tracker batteries” said Richard Canneman, Co-founder. Their patented solar-charging solution does not require direct sunlight to charge and only requires three hours of charge time to last two months with full worldwide tracking functionality. Ekster’s solar technology is now even being implemented by major global shipping companies like Fedex to track their containers.

Partnered with Chipolo®

Chipolo is known for creating the world’s slimmest and loudest tracking devices. This partnership has allowed Ekster® to trim the thickness of their trackers in half (0.09”) as well as make them sound twice as loud. The upgraded Bluetooth 4.2 provides a more stable connection and doubles the connectivity range. Each tracker has a unique QR code that links it to your smartphone like a fingerprint. If your wallet is lost and someone finds it, by scanning this QR code a message will be sent to you, immediately letting you know where the wallet is. Chipolo’s worldwide crowd GPS tracker network spans across the globe to help you find your wallet even when it’s out of Bluetooth range. When any user is within range of your lost item, you receive a GPS update of its location. A fun new feature that was added is the ability to use your tracker as a selfie remote.

Faster Card Access  

Ekster’s new smart wallets hold at least 12 cards but users can enjoy instant access for up to six cards with the click of a button using Ekster’s new and improved card access mechanism. It’s simple – click the trigger, and the cards are immediately ejected without having to open the Ekster Wallet. With their secret inner coating and mechanism redesign, your cards now eject further for easier access.

RFID Blocking

Credit and debit cards issued within the past decade have RFID and NFC technology embedded in them. Cards with this technology can be activated and duplicated from a distance, causing security issues for important data like banking information. Traditional wallets are no longer safe to use – and the Ekster Wallet blocks out all signals with its aluminum cardholder, keeping users fully protected against any data theft.


The Parliament is a leather bi-fold smart wallet for those that want maximum storage and minimum bulk. 

  • Quick card access mechanism
  • Worldwide traceability
  • Solar-powered tracker card
  • RFID blocking technology
  • Premium European leather

About Ekster®

Ekster aims to provide innovative solutions for organized access. With a collection of smart products designed for an efficient and secure everyday carry, they strive to safeguard your daily accessories in the most stylish manner. Since their first Kickstarter campaign three years ago, Ekster has doubled in size every year and become the most-sold smart wallet worldwide. After raising 7000% their initial goal and hitting the $1M first-year revenue mark, they grew to become the biggest smart wallet manufacturer in the world. Their products are available in over 50 stores worldwide, including Macy’s Herald Square, Selfridges and Dubai Mall. To learn more, please visit

Maps that Made History!

A beautiful life is reading a book at a place you love spending time at. I found it is very relaxing to read my recent favorite book at my balcony with sunshine and little plants surrounded. I recommend this book, “Theater of The World”, it tells you the history of the whole world through maps. This book is a nice gift for all people who loves reading and learning knowledges about the world.

“…Sumptuously produced with lots of full-color images… a kind of potted treasury of cartographical history that gleams with piece-of-eight-like snippets of information… this is an enthralling book, and joins the likes of Simon Garfield’s On the Map and Jerry Brotton’s A History of the World in Twelve Maps in the field of popular reaffirmations of the ingenuity of geography.”

– Travis Elborough, Spectator

THEATER OF THE WORLD (Little, Brown; 12/4; $35, 978-0-316-45076-8), by Thomas Reinertsen Berg, is a stunningly illustrated four-color history of mapmaking across centuries. This must-read for history buffs and armchair travelers offers an expert representation of the world through time, telling a new story about our history and the people who made it.

Thomas Reinertsen Berg takes us all the way from the mysterious symbols of the Stone Age to Google Earth, exploring how our ability to envision the world developed hand in hand with global exploration.

Along the way, readers will meet an exciting cast of visionary geographers, heroic explorers, and other previously unknown champions of the mapmaking world, ancient and modern. And 55 four-color illustrations tell a fascinating visual story that allows us to witness the extraordinary breadth of this history with our own eyes.

THEATER OF THE WORLD’s 55 beautiful four-color illustrations tell a fascinating visual story that allows us to witness the extraordinary breadth of this history with our own eyes, and is the perfect gift for the history buff or armchair traveler in your life.

Travel + Leisure’s December issue includes a gorgeous feature on the book, “Thomas Reinertsen Berg’s THEATER OF THE WORLD: The Maps that Made History is a thorough study of cartography, past and present. But more than that, it’s an exploration of what maps mean and why we’ll never stop trying to document the world arounds us.”

Garden & Gun features THEATER OF THE WORLD in their December reading list, “this beautiful collection of historic maps will resonate with folks prone to wanderlust and those longing for a sense of place. A Norwegian journalist mines the human desire to explore while sharing lush cartography from the Stone Age to the age of exploration to modern satellite imagery.”

This book is definitely a lovely gift for the one who loves knowing about the world, who is enthusiastic about traveling and geographic knowledges. THEATER OF THE WORLD is not only just for reading, but also a book you can put on your bookshelf to store it, keeping it for next generations.

John Frieda® Hair Care and Camila Mendes Debut New Day 2 Revival Collection

John Frieda® Hair Care and Brand Ambassador Camila Mendes launched the new Day 2 Revival™ collection at an intimate event in Los Angeles last month. The collection, specially formulated to bring unwashed, second day hair back to life, was shared with a select group of digital influencers and media at a Friendsgiving dinner hosted by Camila in Hollywood Hills.

John Frieda® Hair Care knows that for many women, shampoo and conditioner aren’t a part of their daily routine. In fact, they understand that two, three, four or more days can pass between washes. That’s why they created the Day 2 Revival™ collection, designed to refresh hair and reset statement-making styles on days you don’t wash. Comprised of four styling products, the collection is specially formulated to work on dry hair so you can reset your style with ease on day two and beyond, all while retaining much-needed moisture and effortless texture.

Camila identifies with women who aren’t washing every day. “As someone with naturally textured hair, I tend to avoid washing daily so I can stretch my style for a few days,” she explains. “But after a day or two, my waves just don’t look as good. I love that now there are products that can prolong my time between washes but still keep my hair looking freshly styled.”

The collection has a product for every hair type, from the tightest curls to those with finer, straighter hair:

  • Day 2 Revival Curl Reset™ Spray breathes new life to day-old curls via a nourishing blend of Acai and Avocado Dry Oil. Ideal for curly hair prone to losing moisture, the spray formula instantly revives curl definition while removing frizz, adding moisture and increasing softness.
    • HOW IT WORKS: Enhanced with a conditioning agent, a unique curl styling polymer system blends seamlessly into curls, redefining shape while taming frizz. The hydrating formula leaves hair super soft and touchable, while reinvigorating a beautifully-defined curl shape with a light hold.
    • Recommended for hair types that are naturally curly hair or between curl types 3A to 4A
  • Day 2 Revival Smoothing Dry Oil helps to tame frizz, instantly smoothing and nourishing dry hair. Made with hydrating Acai and Avocado Dry Oil, the formula reignites shine in dull, day-old hair without leaving a heavy or greasy residue.
    • HOW IT WORKS: A cascading silicone blend helps smooth and soften hair while adding shine, nourishing waves and curls with the extra care and moisture they need.
    • Recommended for hair types that are thick, dry hair or between curl types 3B to 4C
  • Day 2 Revival Wave Refresh™ Spray contains a unique blend of Acai and Avocado Dry Oil to increase texture and grip on dry hair. Each spritz instantly makes waves that enhance yesterday’s hair and leave it looking naturally tousled.
    • HOW IT WORKS: A styling polymer combined with crystalized minerals helps to deliver flowing, textured waves while maintaining moisture and natural bounce. Delivered via an easy spray application, it instantly shapes and defines effortless wavy style.
    • Recommended for hair types that are naturally wavy, worn in [wo]man-made waves or between straight hair to curl type 2C
  • Day 2 Revival Dry Shampoo instantly refreshes second day hair and scalp without leaving a visible residue. Lightly scented, it quickly absorbs oil and reactivates style for a clean feeling on the days you don’t wash.
    • HOW IT WORKS: Derived from rice, natural polysaccharides help to remove excess oil in hair via a fine mist formula that leaves hair looking and feeling refreshed.
    • Recommended for all hair types and textures

“Extending your wash days is not a trend, it’s a styling choice that women of all hair types have been doing for quite some time,” says Leah Stone, Senior Brand Manager, John Frieda Hair Care US. “Day 2 Revival products are ideal for women who are looking to make their day two, three or four hair look refreshed, polished and fabulous, without the fuss of washing and drying.”

John Frieda® Day 2 Revival™ products are available via pre-sale at started from November 17th while supplies last. Find the line at officially in 2019. This hair set can be a great gift for your family who love taking care of their hairs!
