  1. Pleats Please

    January 17, 2017 by barbara

    Skirts are indeed the epitome of femininity.  The stylish pleat skirts were on the runways during Fall 2016 collection. Whether it is midi, knee-length or long, it is an indisputable must-have.  Pleated skirts are perfect in an office look or a night out.  Many women chose to wear long pants during the winter months and skirts are not a very popular choice.  I find it extremely stylish to wear a knee-length pleat skirt with a leather jacket and knee high boots. What do you think?

  2. Black Necklaces On Black Outfits

    January 13, 2017 by barbara

    Have you ever tried matching black necklaces with your black outfit, whether it is a top or a dress?  I have seen women with black choker necklaces and black top.  They look great.  I think it is because we get to see the neckline which separates the necklace from the clothes.  What about a black statement necklace with a black top?  What are your thoughts on this?

    December 30, 2016 by barbara

    Do you remember the times when your parties or functions were dampened or even have to end early because of rain? Or the great disappointment of poor turnout because of the rain and all the food has to go to waste? Well, you no longer have to go through those times again. With an inflatable party tent, it doesn’t matter whether it is rain or shine, your party can go on and everyone can have a great time up till the end of the party.

    What is an inflatable party tent? Inflatable party tent is made from thick and durable PVC and is filled with air or gas with a blower. When not in use, it can be deflated and easily stored away without taking much space. It provides good shelter and is portable and movable. It is suitable for swimming pool, waterpark, waterslide, open field or ground. Inflatable tent is very popular for parties, get-togethers, conferences, meetings and outdoor matches or activities.

    Speaking about outdoor matches or activities, there is one fun and crazy game called the Bubble Soccer or the Bubble Football. It is a game of soccer or football using Human Inflatable Bumper Bubble Balls. The players are encased in the inflatable bubbles and they are supposed to try to take possession of the soccer ball. As the players go after the soccer ball, they get bounced off their feet when they bumped into one another. It is hilarious to watch the players trying to get back on their feet. It is a safe game and the players get plenty of exercise.

    For other safe and fun games with inflatable bubble balls or bumper balls, the site to check out is www.inflatable-zone.com. Besides the inflatable balls, this site has many other inflatable products which are safe for children and adults.


  6. The Awkward Time Between Christmas and New Year

    December 28, 2016 by barbara

    So Christmas is over and we are going to say goodbye to 2016 in a few days’ time.  What shall we do during Twixmas?  For your information, Twixmas is not a celebration of the favourite chocolate bar but it is a term that comes from old English phrase called ‘Betwix’.  It means in the middle which is just like the period between after Christmas to New Year.

    What have you been doing this Twixmas?  Visiting friends? Shopping or watching tv all day?

    Remember the 90’s necklace trend?  Yes, I am talking about the favorite 90’s staple – The Choker.  This simple accessory style is what all girls can’t get enough of and it is now gotten huge again. Many celebrities like Kendal Jenner, Lily-Rose Depp were seen wearing choker necklaces.  The black choker necklace adds an edgy rock star vibe to even the simplest look.   A great addition to any outfit.  These neck pieces come in all shapes and sizes.

  9. How To Choose The Perfect Pair of Jeans

    December 19, 2016 by barbara

    I love wearing jeans as they can hide my flaws. I feel insecure with my belly so it is important that I find the right pair of jeans that will accentuate my best features without drawing attention to my midsection.   Although style experts have cautioned against wearing skinny jeans for those who are looking to hide the stomach, I still find they can hide my tummy well.  Choosing a dark colour skinny jeans and pairing with long blouses that cover the hips will flatter the figure and hide the tummy.

    Here are a few charts from Brightside.me that can help to find the perfect pair of jeans for women with different shapes.
