  1. Floral Mini Suitcase

    August 7, 2010 by barbara

    My friend just called me up to tell me about some great dental care discounts which she found out yesterday. While chatting, she told me that she’s going to a beach holiday next week. Oh how I wish I could go with her.  I love the beach so much.  My friend also told me that she bought a floral meadow mini suitcase from and she’s going to use it to pack her clothes.  I really like the floral mini suitcase.  It reminds me of a suitcase I used to have when I was a kid.


  2. Summer Sales At Calypso St. Barth

    August 4, 2010 by barbara

    My husband and I were in the mood for some online shopping last night.  While he was checking out some vga cables, I hopped over to for some retail therapy.  Boy, I so love their tunics.  I keep telling myself that I should get one and pair it with my shorts but I still couldn’t find one which I really like.   I think every woman should have at least one tunic in their wardrobe.  They are ultra comfortable and so chic too.  Below are a few pieces which I like from Calypso St. Barth.  Good news is that they are having a great sale right now.

  3. Urban Outffitters

    July 30, 2010 by barbara

    UrbanOutffiters is one of my favourite stores.  I just love their clothes, shoes, bags and accessories.  Everything about them in fact.  I know, some of their items are rather pricey so most of the time I would just ‘window-shop’.  I was at their website a while ago and I saw a few pieces under $50 which I like.  Time for some shopping again :)

  4. Turn Tap Water Into A Sanitizer

    July 24, 2010 by barbara

    My friend who sell textbooks to school children, just moved into his new home a couple of weeks ago.  He held a housewarming party last weekend and while we were there, I can’t help but notice his Lotus Sanitizing System which he bought from Amazon.  This amazing sanitizing system can turn the tap water into a powerful sanitizer.   Water treated with this system will kill 99.9 percent of the germs  on any surfaces.  It can be used to safely remove bacteria, viruses and neutralizes pesticides from food.    You can even sanitize children’s toys, teethers and pacifiers.  How wonderful is that? With its Oxyshield technology, the Lotus Sanitizing System infuses cold tap water with an extra oxygen atom, thus creating a natural sanitizer.    I am very interested in getting one for my home now.

  6. Totes Made From Recycled Material

    July 17, 2010 by barbara

    I love totes made of fabrics, especially those made from gunny, burlaps or recycled material. I was browsing and stumbled upon some lovely totes at Vintage Junky Style.   The totes were constructed using scraps from vintage grain sacks.  How lovely!  The totes are very sturdy and have been prewashed for softness.  Another reason why I like these totes is because each of them also feature a removable flower corsage whihc was created from new and vintage materials.   If you are looking for a beach bag, diaper bag or a bag for grocery shopping, just head over to Vintage Junky Style and check them out.

  8. Looking Stylish While Pregnant

    July 10, 2010 by barbara

    I remember when I was pregnant 6 years ago, it was so hard to find stylish, comfortable and affordable maternity clothes.  I hated those tent-like dresses that made me looked like a whale.  Pregnant mommies now are far more lucky.  Besides popping the best prenatal vitamin, they have access to a wide range of chic maternity tops, bottoms and dresses available.  Some of the fabulous clothes which I like are from and

  9. A Great Bag For Short Trips

    July 10, 2010 by barbara

    My friend, an insurance agent whom I bought my term life insurance from visited me a couple of days ago to show us some of her holiday photos.  She and her husband went to Singapore recently to visit the newly opened Universal Studios.  They were there for about a week and thoroughly enjoyed their trip.  My friend did a lot of shopping there too.  She told me that she did not take a lot of clothes with her because she wanted to shop in Singapore.   My friend even recommended that I buy the Reisentel Expandable Travel Bag from   The Reisentel bag is cute and functional.  It is an ideal bag for short trips.  You can carry the bag or strap it on the shoulder.   It is available in plain black, plain red or floral as shown in the picture below.  I think I am going to buy it since we often travel to local destinations.


  10. How to look fab when pregnant

    July 8, 2010 by barbara

    My 5-month pregnant cousin just dropped by home yesterday, while on her way to her doctor’s office to get some prenatal multivitamins.  I must say that my cousin is looking fabulous eventhough she’s pregnant.  My cousin was dressed casually but she looked really great.  Her maternity outfit is from Gap.  Here is what she wore yesterday.

    She paired the shirt with a demi panel straight cropped jeans

    Lovely eh?  As for shoes, she was wearing her Chloe ballerina flats.   Have to stay away from heels at the moment.
