  3. Recycled Party Decor

    June 5, 2013 by barbara

    I was blog-hopping last night and when I was at Design Sponge, I read about its wonderful party decorations idea.  I love it to bits.  Design Sponge talked about using the things that we already have in the house and recycle them as party decorations.  It just super simple and not to mention eco-friendly too.  Just use flyers or magazine pages to create some tassels or newspapers as buntings.  Then decorate them with some washi tapes or colourful markers.  Awesome right?    I wonder what I can create with some t-nuts which I have plenty at home. Can’t wait for the next party so that I can let my creative juices flow.

    This classic rubber rain boot is what I would like to have now.  It has been raining quite a lot lately and if you want to look good and safe while stepping out on the wet ground,  get one too from Chicwish.com.  It features a low profile heel and non-slip rubber sole.  You can wear a colourful pair of sock to add some colours to this jelly pink rubber rain boots.

     

     


  6. A Busy Weekend

    May 18, 2013 by barbara

    Over the weekend, we attended a housewarming party as well as an 8 year old birthday party. Yeah it was a pretty busy weekend for everyone in our household. We had fun at the housewarming bbq party. The host even serenaded the guests with some songs on his electric bass. Music was great because the host just bought some new dr strings from musicians friend.  We also had a swell time at the kid’s birthday party and the highlight of the day was when everyone was given some frozen delights – Zipzicle Pop.  They are so good especially on a hot day.  I had a lot of these when  I was a kid.  Sure brings back some good memories.

  9. Clarks New Arrival

    May 7, 2013 by barbara

    Have you checked out Clarks shoes this season?  I was at their shop last weekend and spotted a few pairs that I really like.  I love their wedges and I have been thinking if I should get a pair eventhough I have another pair of wedge which I haven’t worn yet.  It feels pretty uncomfortable when standing for some time so I think I may need to get the spenco insoles from bestinsoles.com.  I could not resist not buying that pair of wedge because it was on sale.  Now, back to Clarks.  I am also looking at some flats for my next vacation.  This little beauty just caught my eyes.

    Do you know what is this?

    Is it a bag?

    Well the truth is that these are flower pots made from recycled advertising tarpaulins.  These Otra flower pots are designed to be hung on balcony guardrails and they consist of only one material.  All you need to do when assembling is just fold it.  Easy peasy.  So if you are looking for ways to brighten up your balcony, get a few of these pretty recycled Otra Flower pots.
