  2. How To Wear Statement Necklace

    July 14, 2015 by barbara

    I love statement necklaces.  They are great to spice up your outfit and make a drab outfit look spectacular.  I used to think that statement necklaces only look good on plain tops but I was wrong.  One can pull it off with just any tops. Here are a few examples :-

  3. Decor Inspiration

    July 13, 2015 by barbara

    Since we just got a piano for beginners for our home, I have been looking around for some decor ideas.  I think we need to revamp the living area for a bit to accommodate the new piano.  Whole blog-hopping, I found this gorgeous living space at Decor8.   I just love the white walls, white flooring and the white furniture with a touch of earth tones from a few items.  I am totally smitten by the recycled pallet as coffee table.  Perhaps I should paint my walls to white and change the furniture too.  The piano is black so it adds a touch of colour to the living area.  Let me think about this.

  5. Time For Some Spring Cleaning

    July 7, 2015 by barbara

    I went on a spring cleaning spree over the weekend.  Did the kid’s bedroom and boy does she have a lot of toys, stationery and bags.  I cannot believe how many things she has and it is also partly my fault for buying so many things when she does not need them actually.   There are many new bags, pouches and note books in her drawers.  I did throw some old notes and broken toys into the pull out waste containers. I managed to collect a big bagful of new stationery which I am going to donate to the orphanage.  Will spring-clean more this coming weekend.

  6. Vertical Herb Garden Planter

    July 2, 2015 by barbara

    I am so loving this chalkboard vertical herb garden planter.  It is securely mounted to the wall and offers a unique and space-saving method to harvest fresh herbs.  It is also a great way to add lush greenery to the kitchen or outdoor area.  Just fill it with the herb of your choice and don’t forget to water it.  The chalkboard paint finish allows you to label the herbs.  Available at Williams-Sonoma.

  7. Running To Stay Fit

    May 19, 2015 by barbara

    In order to stay fit and healthy, I run a few times a week.  I do it on a threadmill during weekdays and on weekends I try to run outdoor at the park or in the neighbourhood.  I try to run longer distance when I am outdoor.  Running is a great stress reliever for me.  The sound of my breathing helps to clear my mind.  Usually when I am under stress, I would go for a run and that calms me down.  I just spotted a running tee which I like.  I wonder if it is handmade and dri-fit. Funny tee right? I can really relate to that.

  10. The Culottes Trend

    May 5, 2015 by barbara

    Am into culottes these days.  It is one of the biggest pants trend this year.  Culottes were all over the Spring 2015 runways around the world. This pant is  a great alternative to flowing dresses or jumpsuit.  What is the best way to wear it?  Crop tops and heels would elongate the look.  For petite girls, it’s best to keep a shorter hemline.
