  3. Pretty Leg Warmers For Fall

    October 8, 2010 by barbara

    Leg warmers were the fashion staplers in the 70’s and 80’s.  Remember Flashdance and the aerobic-crazy trend?  It was fun and cool to wear them and I signed up for an aerobic class after watching Flashdance just so that I can wear leg warmers.   Like heated blanket, leg warmers are cozy accessories to help keep your legs warm in winter. Well, leg warmers are making a comeback now.  They seem to be a fashion statement and are perfect for tights or skinny jeans.  If you are looking for one, check out this cute Crochet Flower Leg Warmers from Shop Ruce.  Available in different colours.

    A friend will be moving to North Carolina before Christmas.  Besides busy packing her things to be shipped, my friend is also looking around for health insurance in nc and other important matters for her move.  Two nights ago, a few of us got together to give our friend a farewell dinner.  We had dinner at a restaurant in downtown and then adjourned to a quaint cafe for coffee.  As a farewell gift, I gave her a cute Chloe bow key fob. Nice?  My friend loves it.

    I go grocery shopping once a week.  Most stores have opted for the “No Shopping Bag” Day during weekends.  Hence I have been using a recycle bag to keep my groceries, you know those free recycle bags you get when you have signed up for some telecommunication package.  I really need to get a more fun and colourful shopping bag like this Barcelona Stripe Market Tote.  It is durable and has a roomy interior.  I love the bold stripes and the bright colours.  Using the Barcelona Stripe Market Tote will definitely brighten up my shopping.
