  1. Forever 21 Spring 2011

    January 26, 2011 by barbara

    I was at Forever 21’s website just now to check out its latest collection when I saw a familiar style – Flared Jeans.  Are bell-bottoms making a comeback this year?   Well, I don’t really mind as long as it is not baggy jeans.  I know some people cannot stand bell bottoms after growing up in them. Pants or jeans with a slightly wider than boot cut with slimmer thigh and waist is pretty cool.  Skinny jeans fans need not worry though.  According to the fashion gurus, they are still around.  What about you? Do you like bell-bottoms?

    After helping my friend to check out the bridesmaid dresses for her coming wedding, I went to look for some wedding favour ideas when I stumbled upon this cute box of pears.  Cute eh?  They are not edible though.  These cute pears are actually memo pads from D-Bros.  I love them.  You can also find memo pads in the shape of apples.  There are 150 sheets in one.  A nice way to add some fun to your work table.

    I am a big fan of sticky notes.  This is probably a sign that age is catching up.  I tend to forget things easily hence sticky notes come in handy.  I have them in my office and my home.  I really the Kitchen Sticky Notes from  It features a shopping list and cute notes for flagging recipes like “great for kids”, “didn’t work” and “too hard”.  I can also write notes and reminders such as “buy ephedra diet pills“.

    Diet pills that work fast is what I need to get my hands on now because a good friend of mine who was my schoolmate, will be getting married in May.  I need to lose weight so that I would look good at her wedding.  It will also be some sort of a reunion for some of us as my friend will be inviting many ex-schoolmates to her wedding.  My friend asked me if I could give her any diy ideas on wedding decorations.  I found some cool ideas on and Martha Stewart.

    It was my birthday yesterday and I had a fantastic day.  My good friends gave me a lovely purse and a beautiful ring for my big day.  My sweet daughter drew me a cute birthday card and was so excited about it.  Someone asked me if my husband gave me a gold bar as gift. No he did not but he did give me some money and asked me to buy whatever I like.   Since Zara is having its annual sale right now, I am thinking of getting these :-

    My friend just got a Nintendo Wii Fit Plus for Christmas and she is now looking around for wii accessories. Her birthday is coming up in 2 weeks time and I am thinking of getting her the accessories.  I was also looking around at other gift ideas and came across this Aluminium Wall Hanger from Muji.  This versatile hanger is designed to hang by the wall or on flat vertical surfaces such as doors or cabinet drawers.  Have to make a decision very soon.
