  1. Things That I Want To Do Now

    November 18, 2009 by barbara

    Oh boy, there are so many things which I have to do but so little time.  I better move my derriere and get started real soon.   Here is a list of things that I have to do.

    1.  Check out some Toronto hotels as I wish to spend a White Christmas in Toronto.

    2.  Start shopping for Christmas gifts for my family and friends.

    3.  Give my home a makeover or rather my living room.

    4.  Start painting my guest room and decorate it.  My 4 year old has been requesting for her own room.

    5.  Lose 10 pounds before Christmas.

    6.  Get a Roots Canada tee.  Did I say I love Canada and all things Canadian?

  2. Fly Butterfly Fly

    November 15, 2009 by barbara

    I was blog-hopping and came across this lovely Silver Butterfly Mobile from Shoestring Home.  Aren’t they a stunner?  Reminds me of the butterfly decor in the lobby of one of the las vegas nv hotels where me and my family stayed during our vacation 2 years ago.  This intricately detailed butterfly mobile is suspended from a metal frame.  A beautiful addition to any room and they make a great housewarming gift too.

    One of my favorite clothing stores is Promod.  They have great clothes and are always so chic.  You can easily mix and match the clothes.  Promod’s clothes are just my style.   Here are some of my fav items from their online store.

  6. Cool Tableware

    November 7, 2009 by barbara

    My husband and I went to the mall a few days ago as he wanted to check out some home alarm systems.  While we were there, I went into a shop selling kitchen accessories and was bowled over by this sugar bowl. It is made of steel with a colored finish or stainless steel.  The lid is made of polished stainless steel.  Great for those who want to add a dash of colours in the kitchen.

  7. Hand-Painted Bead Bracelets

    November 5, 2009 by barbara

    I am so addicted to this website – www.maei.nl and have been browsing it for the last 30 minutes.  I should be looking for some health insurance leads but instead, I am staring at these beautiful accessories such as the Brown and Gold Bead Bracelet.  They are so unique and make a very good gift for those who are into one of a kind accessories.

    Each item is made from hand-painted wooden beads and decorated with colourful flowers.

    I like this red Rapture bracelet too.


  8. Flower BagPack

    November 3, 2009 by barbara

    I love this cool idea.  Instead of using the normal cellophane wraps  or paper for your bouquet of flowers, the Flower BagPack is a great alternative.  It is eco-friendly and looks great.  The Flower BagPack is available in 2 versions – a one-time wrap made from recycled waste paper and cardboard or a reusable wrap made of cellulose and recycled leather scraps.  Lovely. I certainly do not mind receiving a bouquet in this stylish bagpack.


  9. Citrus Fruit Peeler

    November 3, 2009 by barbara

    I always have a hard time peeling oranges.  So what I normally do is just cut the oranges with the skin intact and try not to eat into the skin.  I am so glad to stumble upon the Apostrophe Orange Peeler from Fitzsu.  It is a handy kitchen utensil that cuts just enough into the peel.  It is very easy to use and the peel will be removed in a jiffy.  The Apostrophe Orange Peeler is just as cool as those metal buildings. Makes a great housewarming gift.
