  1. Mad About Accessories

    October 21, 2009 by barbara

    I love shopping for accessories.  I could shop for them any day and any time.  Yes, I am an accessory junkie.  What woman doesn’t like accessories eh?  Fashion accessories are an important fashion  element for a woman.  While my husband is into car accessories, I cannot get enough of earrings, bracelets and necklaces.  These accessories can easily update your wardrobe without breaking the bank account.  My current favorites are these :-

  3. Working Out At Home

    October 20, 2009 by barbara

    I have been watching The Biggest Loser on tv (reruns) everyday.  Seeing those contestants working out at the gym and pushing themselves to the limit are really inspiring.  I would love to get myself a weight machine to do some exercise at home.  Been looking around some home gyms and came across a few good quality ones at Weider.  I especially like this Weider C720 System.   Let’s hope this is what I would be getting for Christmas :)

  4. Shopping For A Black Bag

    October 16, 2009 by barbara

    Do you know that I do not have a black handbag?  This is insane eh?  A black handbag is a must-have for every woman.  It is something that should not be left out in a woman’s closet.  Some women even have a few black handbags.  It has been in style for like, forever and will continue to be a favorite to women of all ages.   Yet, I don’t have one.  This is why I have been shopping around for one recently.  Okay, I have also been shopping around for some eye creams to get rid of my dark eye circles but that’s the story for another day :)  I like bags that are big because I have too many things to carry with me….lipstick, comb, mobile phone, extra clothing for my daughter, wet wipes, tissues, pen, notepads and many more.  I found some really gorgeous bags at Lulus.com.

  5. No More Wet Umbrellas

    October 12, 2009 by barbara

    I just came across this nifty little invention that helps to prevent a dripping umbrella.  With this cool design, you don’t have to worry about a wet umbrella creating a mess in your place.  The Wet Umbrella No More is designed by Seung Hee Son.  Take it out when it rains and when you don’t need it, just fold it away.  The umbrella converts into a stylish bag and all the squishy wet stuff stay inside.

    Here is a rocking chair which I would like to have in my living room.

  9. Shoe Closet Makeover With Crocs

    September 30, 2009 by barbara

    I love shopping for shoes.  I do not know what it is about shoes but I just adore them.  I have been called a shoeholic by my family and friends.  One of my favorite shoe brands is Crocs.  They are just so comfortable and cool.   There are many different types of Croc shoes.  My first pair of Crocs is the Beach collection in Pearl.   I was so happy when they came out with wedges.  Needless to say, I have a pair of Sassari and Havana in my shoe cupboard now.  My husband is also a big fan of Crocs and since both of us are crazy over them, we also bought a few pairs for our 4 year old daughter.  I just saw their new collection for Fall.  I am so in love with their new Lily.

    If you intend to turn your house into a green home, here is something cool you can get.  A recycled curtain made from plastic flip-flops.  Artisans from Kenya created this unique door curtain of strung beads made from recycled flip-flops that were washed ashore on the Indian Ocean coast.  What a great way to turn thrash into something useful.  Check out Tenthousandvillages.com for more information.
