  1. Cupcake Carrier As Hostess Gift

    September 8, 2012 by barbara

    So we have been invited to a housewarming party next weekend.  My dear friend just moved into her new home in the suburb and we are all looking forward to visiting her new place.  My friend’s hubby make their own wine and they have all kinds of wine making supplies such as fermenters and oak barrels.  We cannot wait to taste some of their wines at the party. Since my friend loves to bake, Iam thinking of getting her this giant cupcake carrier from Epicurious.com.  Not only it looks cute, this carrier can store 24 cupcakes.

     

     


  2. Denim On Denim Trend

    September 4, 2012 by barbara

    After I was done helping a friend to look up the saddle pads for her daughter’s riding lesson,  I hopped over to my favourite online stores to check out some denim tops.  Lately I have been seeing lots of women wearing denim on denim and they look incredibly chic.  I have never done denim on denim before but I guess it is not too late to try.  Some inspiration I spotted…

    Here is a very stylish and simple way to get crushed garlic. Just get the Joseph Joseph Garlic Rocker from SurLaTable.  All you need to do is press it against the garlic using downward pressure and rocking motion.  As this crusher is made of stainless steel, it helps to  remove garlic odors too.    How neat huh?

  6. Keeping The Kids Busy At The Restaurant

    August 19, 2012 by barbara

    I was at the mall yesterday looking for a memory foam topper so that I can sleep better at night.  After walking for a while, my friend and I settled down at a bistro for lunch.   While waiting for our food to arrive, my friend took out the A-Z colouring placemat to keep her child entertained.   The placemats look like big flashcards and are fun for children to colour.  My friend bought a stack of them which consists 26 sheets featuring animals from A to Z.   She just keeps them in her bag and take them out whenever she wants to keep her child entertained.

  9. A Great Weekend With Friends

    August 8, 2012 by barbara

    How was your weekend peeps? It was great one for me. I got to spend some time with good friends on Saturday. My friend hosted a bbq at his home and besides enjoying the good food, we all had the chance to watch my friend playing on his epiphone joe pass emperor ii electric guitar.  He plays with his band mates at a local bar on weekends just for fun.  Oh, my friend also has this nifty looking TomBox amplifier which was made using discarded loudspeakers.  Ain’t it cool?
