  2. No More Wardrobe Malfunction

    August 25, 2010 by barbara

    When I am shopping for tops, I have to refrain from buying some of them because they are low cut.   I know I could wear a tube inside but it doesn’t look good all the time.  I am glad that I finally found something which allows me to wear low cut tops without me fidgeting 🙂  It is a lil button called  Bosom Button which can hold the clothing in place better than safety pins or tape.  Bosom Button is made with sparkling Swarovski crystals and pearl cabochons.   With the Bosom Button, I do not have to worry about my gaping shirt anymore.  Available at

  3. Shopping – Online & Offline

    August 23, 2010 by barbara

    The weekend came and gone in a flash.  Time surely flies.    So what do you do during weekends?  I love going to the malls or flea markets for some shopping.  When I am not at the mall, I love to sit in front of the computer and browse the online stores.  Yes I do visit online stores a lot and I have been buying from a few of my favourite stores.  I have a friend who does not like to do her shopping online because she said she prefers to be able to see and feel her merchandise and have them scanned by a barcode scanner.  My friend feels that it is safer to shop this way.  Well, there are pros and cons with shopping online and offline.  One of my favourite online stores is  I just love handmade products.  Right now, I am interested in this Red Lantern switch plate cover for my home.  Lovely, ain’t it?

  5. How To Hide Flabby Arms

    August 14, 2010 by barbara

    Lately, I have taken a liking to cardigans.  I like cardis because they are very versatile.  I can always wear a sleeveless top with a cardi over it so that my flabby arms are not visible.  I have never worn any sleeveless tops before. Well, not when I am out of the house because  I am very conscious of my flabby arms.  With the cardis, I can wear whatever tops I want now.  Perhaps I should get myself an elliptical trainer to stay in shape and tone my arms eh?


    I can wear this lace top or


    this beaded top


    with a short cardi like the above


    or  a long cardigan.

  6. Stainless Steel Finger Guard

    August 13, 2010 by barbara


    I was invited to dinner at a friend’s house a couple of days ago.  My friend has just been promoted and the dinner is to celebrate his promotion.  I was chatting with his wife while she was preparing food in the kitchen and can’t help but notice the stainless steel shield she was using.    It was a finger guard which helps to protect the finger while slicing and dicing vegetables.  It features a welded ring which can fits the chef’s middle finger.  The tip of the shield holds the food in place while you cut/sliced.   What a brilliant tool.   I think I should get one too.

  7. Pepper Saver

    August 13, 2010 by barbara


    I cook peppers quite a fair bit and I also put them in the porridge for my child.  However, I usually use half a pepper in the porridge.  What do I do with the balance?  I keep it in the fridge to be used the next time.  Usually the leftover pepper would turn wrinkly after a few days.   A while ago I came across a cute pepper-shaped container which helps to keep the air and light out of cut peppers.    The Pepper Saver is perfect for keeping the cut peppers stay fresh longer.  Available at

  8. Lose Weight With Arctic Gym

    August 12, 2010 by barbara

    A friend of mine has been dieting and exercising for the past 3 months. She has recently lost about 5kg and her target is to lose 6kg.  She’s doing such a great job and is an inspiration to people like me who are trying to lose weight.  My friend said she has been using The Arctic Gym to keep fit.  It is a video game which detects movements and measures the performance and fitness progress.  It comes with a mat with thirty pressure sensitive pads with sensors to detect the feet and body positions.  There are three preset exercise modes to choose from – muscle workout, aerobics and yoga.   I think I will buy the top diet pills and The Arctic Gym to shed some kilos.



  9. Recycled Wine Bag Or Wine Caddy

    August 12, 2010 by barbara

    While my husband while busy helping his friend to look up the 5th wheel warranty, I was scouring the internet for unique wine bags or wine holders.  We have a party to attend next weekend and we would like to present the host with a bottle of good wine.  I figure that a nice wine holder would be better than the normal gift bag.  I found the most lovely wine bag at The West End.  It is made of discarded newspaper and coated in plastic.


    Another one which I like is the one below which is made from pages of twisted old magazines.   Using these recycled wine caddy or wine bag to carry the wine bottles is rather eye-catching, don’t you think so?
