  2. Plus Size Clothing For Women

    June 9, 2011 by barbara

    While my spouse was checking out the ATV Accessories, my friend called up and had a chat with me.  She was lamenting that she has no clothes to wear for her co-worker’s wedding in 2 weeks’ time.  I cannot blame her because shopping choices are very limited for women with voluptuous figure.  I went online to help her look for some dresses and came upon La Grande Dame, an online boutique which caters to larger women.  They have a huge selection of beautiful and trendy clothing as well as accessories.  Here’s a few pieces which I think my friend would like.

    Eventhough the birthday party for my 6 year old is over, I am still visiting food and party blogs for some party treats.  I don’t know what has gotten over me but I don’t mind organizing another birthday party because I’m so going ga-ga over these oreos and marshmallow pops.  I saw them at Hip Hip Hooray.  They are so simple to make and the result is so much fun.

    I have been visiting many craft blogs lately and feeling very inspired.  Perhaps I should start a Craft blog and post about the lovely projects which I have seen.  That way, I can always go back to read them and try to do some of the crafts eh?  What I love most are the creative paper packaging for gifts.  There is nothing better than a simple brown kraft paper as gift wrapper.  There is so much you can do to decorate the gift.

  10. Getting Rid Of Lower Tummy Bulge

    May 23, 2011 by barbara

    Besides wanting to get my hands on some hgh releasers badly, another thing that is on top of my list is this Lower Stomach Beauty Trainer from Japan Trend Shop.  I want to get rid of my lower tummy bulge as soon as possible.  Actually I want to get rid of the whole tummy bulge and not just the lower part.  This slimming exercise cushion is effective and all you need to do is to slide your feet and legs into the holes and twist your body from side to side.  Easy?   I think I can spend 30 minutes doing this while watching the tv.  This cushion is great for slimming the waist and stomach.  Plus you do not need a lot of space to store it.  Can’t wait to see my toes when I’m standing up.
