    May 30, 2012 by barbara

    Besides helping a friend to look for swisher sweet, I am also shopping for some children’s birthday gifts.  My good friend’s twin daughters are turning 5 in a couple of weeks and I chanced upon these cute Insulated Lunch Bag at Pearl River.  The Big Apple Buddies Insulated Lunch Bags are BPA and PVC safe.  They are cute, aren’t they.  You can find a dog and a cat design as well.

  3. Summer Must Haves

    May 28, 2012 by barbara

    My spouse’s friend is a music lover and and he owns a shop selling musical instruments and accessories.  During the weekends, he would be displaying some items from his store at the local flea market.  He also has a collection of vintage turntables and LPs.  So, last weekend when the spouse was visiting his friend at the flea market, I spent some time shopping at the mall.  Everywhere I go, I could see bright coloured khaki pants.  I ended up getting a pair of this from Gap.


  4. Pretty Toilet Rolls

    May 26, 2012 by barbara

     I was at the Bead store supplier’s place yesterday and decided to use the bathroom.   I was pleasantly surprised to see her cute toilet paper.  It was in a funky print of hearts.  She told me that she got them from The Designer Toilet Roll Company in UK.  Well, I really don’t mind getting some for my bathroom too.  Why go for boring toilet papers when you can get Colourful Hearts, Cheeky Chicken or Beautiful Butterflies print eh? These toilet rolls are made with safe, colorfast vegetable-oil based-ink.  Can’t wait to beautify my bathroom with them.


  5. Beach Towels For Children

    I know my 7 year old is going to love this cute Princess Hooded Beach Towel.  Yes, she is still at the Princess stage.  The beach towel is so colourful.  It is a great way to keep the little ones dry at the beach pool.  Made of 100% cotton.  Available at Bed Bath & Beyond.


  6. Portable Highchair

    May 19, 2012 by barbara

    When my kid was a toddler, I do not fancy having her seated on the highchair when we eat out.  The highchairs at the eateries are usually wobbly and dirty.  I would usually do a wipe-down with the baby wipes first to clean the chair.  If you are like me, then you may want to take a look at MyLittleSeat, a compact fabric highchair that can be folded into the size of a diaper.   It features a 5-point harness system and is extremely durable.   I like its colour and design.

    Right after I have checked out the answering services for our new office, I went online to visit my favourite shopping blogs earlier today.  That was when I stumbled upon this awesome website that sells eco-friendly, 100% recycled custom-designed stickers that are just great for children play.  Box Play For Kids turn old cereal boxes, milk cartons, toilet paper rolls, shoe boxes or any cardboard boxes into new toys for kids.   Ain’t that fun?  This is so good for the kids’ imagination.   So, if you are looking for green crafts for your children, do hop over to Box Play For Kids today.


  8. I am A Pinaholic

    May 11, 2012 by barbara

    Did I mention that I love Pinterest?  I can actually spend hours just browsing this site.  I bet all Pinterest fans do that.  With 15 Boards and 890 pins, I am a Pinaholic.  You can find virtually anything in Pinterest such as Film, Fitness, Technology and even what is the best cable tray. Besides fashion and food recipes, my favourite category is craft.  There is virtually nothing that these creative people cannot do.  I get so inspired seeing all the wonderful crafts pinned in this virtual board. I have been looking for Teacher’s Appreciation gift ideas and I found these at Pinterest.


  9. Scrap Trap

    Here is something that I really need in the kitchen – The Scrap Trap from Taylor Gifts.  The Scrap Trap helps to keep the counter and sink clear while we prepare food.  All those peelings, shells, scraps and more can be easily scrape into the bin for quick garbage collection or composting.   This plastic bin holds up to 2 quarts and can be easily clipped onto any standard drawer or cabinet door.   It is dishwasher safe too.


  10. Hopscotch Rug For Children’s Bedroom

    May 4, 2012 by barbara

    I love to play Hopscotch when I was a kid.  I love to draw on the sidewalk or the porch and then take turns to play with my sister.  It was so much fun.  I have introduced this game to my kid and she likes it too.  Playing hopscotch is way better than spending time in front of the TV or Ipad.   I chanced upon this rug at and I think it will be perfect for her bedroom.  Not only can it serve as a rug, it can also be a play thing for her room. Now let’s see if I can find any promo codes for this item.
