    December 6, 2010 by barbara

    Christmas is less than 3 weeks away.  So, have you started your holiday gift shopping yet?   I like shopping for gifts during the holiday season.  However I know some people who love Christmas but just dislike shopping for gifts because it can get rather overwhelming.  If you would like to enjoy a more relaxed shopping experience, here are some gift ideas under $50.  You can get home accessories, jewelries such as rings and even something for the kids in this list.

  3. Accessorizing Your Outfit

    December 3, 2010 by barbara

    I am into accessories. I love wearing bracelets, necklace, rings and earrings. Accessories are great for sprucing up a plain outfit or rejuvenate an old one.  With the right accessories, it is easy to add unique touches to your look or make an ordinary outfit look great.  While the man was busy looking for material handling equipment, I found some gorgeous accessories from WhiteHouseBlackMarket.com.

  6. Storage Baskets I Heart

    November 27, 2010 by barbara

    I love having baskets around my home. Whether they are made from seagrass, bamboo, canvas or cotton fabrics, I love them all.   Things are so much neater around the house when you have baskets to store them.  I like to keep my magazines, snacks, bread,  spices and toiletries such as combs, face wash, epiduo, shampoos and more in the baskets.  Therefore you would find many baskets in my living area, kitchen and bathrooms.  Here are a few lovely ones I found recently.

  10. Cute Safety Covers

    November 22, 2010 by barbara

    It is important that your home is safe and secure for your children.  A small prevention measure goes a long way.   Children love sticking their fingers into the holes of the electrical socket.  This can cause electrocution.  Therefore one of the best ways to prevent that is to use safety covers on them. Here are some really cute animal plug safety covers for your home.   A set of 8 includes 2 each of cat, dog, elephant and sheep.  These adorable animal plug safety covers are available at catchingfireflies.com
