  1. Unique Gift For A Dog Lover

    August 16, 2009 by barbara

    My friend’s daughter will be celebrating her birthday next week.  I have been shopping for her birthday gift and came upon this  cute cardboard Mastiff at The Conran Shop.   This realistic looking dog is a cool gift for a dog lover like her.  She has a poodle at home and plan to get another dog but her mom forbids.  Well, this cardboard mastiff won’t bark or bite, that’s for sure.   Made from laser-cut cardboard and comes flatpacked with instructions and diagrams for assembly.   I am still wondering if I should get her one of those pet beds instead.  What do you think?

    Love this real straight cropped jeans from Gap. The charcoal grey colour is just perfect for Fall.  Made with 99% cotton and 1% spandex.  This stretch denim is low rise and designed to lift and flatter.  Pair it with a shirt or a blazer.  I wonder if I would lose a few pounds before wearing this hot denim.

    I love eating pineapples but I dislike cutting its thick skin. If you are like me, well, good news is here.  We don’t have to fret anymore with this Stainless Steel Pineapple Corer.  It works like a corkscrew where it peels, cores and slices a pineapple with one action.  Cool eh?  Now, you can enjoy fresh pineapples without worrying how to remove its skin.  Get the Pineapple Corer from


  5. Walk In Tubs

    August 3, 2009 by barbara

    My family and I just came back from a short break over the weekend.   We went up North to eat all the delicious and mouth-watering food.   As our friends also joined us, we booked ourselves into a new hotel.  We stayed at their 2-bedroom apartment.  The apartment is nice and clean.  One of the rooms has attached bathroom which comes with a shower stall and a bathtub.  It would be good to have walk in tubs instead of  normal bathtubs.  I heard that many new hotels have installed luxury walk in tubs now.  They are easy, safe, accessible and comfortable.  Walk in tubs are best for people who prefer to slide onto the seat rather than stepping into the tub.  This is a much safer way especially for the elderly.

    Our health insurance is almost due for renewal so my husband has asked me to look for a cheap health insurance as our current one is not very affordable.  I will check it out as soon as I am done shopping for this lovely top at Lucky Brand Jeans.  I love this Coachella tunic which features a border print inspired by Mexican fabric.  It is flowy, comfortable and stylish.  Available in Lucky Black and Sangria Red.   Looks best when paired with skinny jeans.  Can’t wait to wear this.  Ok…have to start shopping for cheap health insurance now.

    July 23, 2009 by barbara


    This nifty key hanger is just what I need.   I have a bad memory and I am always leaving my house keys all over the place.  This “Do Not Lose Me” key hook’s design is based on the classic “Do not disturb” hotel signs.  Hector Serrano has brilliantly added a few hooks on the sign and and transformed it into a key caddy.  A simple, clean and clever idea.  With this keyhook, I will never have to search for my keys all over the house again.

  10. MarieBelle Signature Truffles

    July 19, 2009 by barbara

    I just had some truffles yesterday.  My friend who returned from the States for a vacation brought a box of MarieBelle Signature Truffles along.  Boy, they were delicious.  The box contains 16 truffles and each has a unique and familiar flavours such as Earl Gray, Tea or Hazelnut.  I like the signature blue and brown box which the truffles came in.  I had a Hazelnut and a Tea flavoured truffle. I think I should start looking for some of the best acne treatment as I tend to get acne after eating truffles or chocolate. Must be the nuts.
