  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Organize Your Shoes

    January 21, 2015 by barbara

    I love Umbra.  I first discovered it when I was staying in Toronto.  Their designs are intelligent and beautiful.  I love filling my home with Umbra products.  I was browsing its website just now and came across this lovely  shoe rack called Imelda Shoe Rack (yes you heard the name correctly). I like the minimalist design of this rack which can neatly stack the shoes at the entryway.  Besides getting the amplifiers for guitar, I also need a shoe rack like this.

    These Geometric prism planter or ornaments are wonderful delicate pieces which look modern.  Based on traditional Scandinavian himmeli mobiles, they are often hung in a baby’s room, over dinner table to ensure good harvest, on Christmas tree or inside the house all year round.  These Geometric prism are very popular now and often use to hang plants or succulents. Check them out at Etsy.com.
