  2. Organize Your Shoes

    January 21, 2015 by barbara

    I love Umbra.  I first discovered it when I was staying in Toronto.  Their designs are intelligent and beautiful.  I love filling my home with Umbra products.  I was browsing its website just now and came across this lovely  shoe rack called Imelda Shoe Rack (yes you heard the name correctly). I like the minimalist design of this rack which can neatly stack the shoes at the entryway.  Besides getting the amplifiers for guitar, I also need a shoe rack like this.

    Am loving these Wild Dining Plates from TheFowndry.com.  They are so much fun.  You can come face to face with nature over dinner.  Ain’t that fun?  The plates are made from ceramic and are dishwasher and microwave safe.  So which one is your favourite?  Mine is the cute panda of course.

    Here is another product which I really love.  It’s a chalkboard table runner from Uncommon Goods.  This is just great when the kids need some doodling time during dinner.  This unique and innovative design comes with dustless chalk so it is perfectly safe on your dining table.  You can even cut this up and turn it into a placemats or even hand as a banner.   Interested to get your hand on this?  Well just click here.


  5. Colour Changing Umbrella

    March 5, 2014 by barbara

    While looking around for a nikon d80 battery charger, I stumbled upon this fun and unique colour changing umbrella at SaraGlove.com.    When the umbrella is dry, the butterfly designs are all in white.  However, as soon as the water touches the fabric, the butterflies would change into a burst of colours like yellow, pink and blue.  How lovely is that?  The umbrella features a push button auto open feature and fibreglass frame.  So if you want to add some joy to your gloomy rainy day, get one of these umbrellas.  It would surely bring smiles and laughter to all around.

     


  6. Music and Wine

    February 25, 2014 by barbara

    My brother-in-law’s birthday is just around the corner.  His wife is organizing a birthday party for him to celebrate his 40th birthday.   It is going to be a fun celebration.  I have been cracking my head what to get him for his birthday. Actually I found a vox amplug metal headphone amp which I think he would like since he loves listening to music all the time.  Then I was also contemplating on getting him this nifty wine bottle holder – Lasso Bottle Holder as he is into drinking wine.  Decisions, decision.

     


  7. Choosing Necklaces For Necklines

    January 7, 2014 by barbara

    Recently I bought at black top from Mango and it has a plunging V-neck.  The top is very simple so I want to wear a necklace to dress it up.  However, I cannot seem to find the right necklace for this kind of neckline.  A statement necklace won’t look nice with it.  So I went on the internet and found this useful tip on Pinterest.

    So now I know what type of necklace I should be wearing for different necklines.
