    I like sticky note pads.   They are so useful and I really don’t know what to do without them.  I need to write reminders a lot and the yellow sticky note pads sure come in handy.  For those who are a little bored at work, then here is something interesting for you –  Sticky Note Pads Origami Style.   Each sticky note pad comes with instructions and dotted lines for you to create a simple origami design.  You can try folding a swan, a cute penguin, pelican or more.  Time to exercise your mind and discover the ancient Japanese art of paper folding.  Get them at

    I love this cute tin cake carrier from  I think every baker should have at least one of these.  Its exterior is decorated to look like a colourful cake with the wordings, “Everything Is Better With Cake and Frosting” on top of the lid.  There is also a metal latch to hold the lid tightly.  This tin cake carrier makes a great birthday gift for someone who loves to be  in the kitchen baking.


  5. Best Fit Maternity Jeans

    May 14, 2010 by barbara

    Besides busy popping prenatal vitamin, my cousin who is 4 months pregnant has been on the lookout for a pair of maternity jeans.  It is very hard to find one that fits just right.  When I was pregnant, I couldn’t find one that fits me.  I was miserable because I love wearing jeans.  It is so comfortable and I can just basically do everything in the jeans.  My cousin wants to wear maternity jeans throughout her pregnancy and she asked me if I know where she can find some amazing ones.  The first place that came to my mind is Gap.  They have a range of fashionable jeans for the trendy moms-to-be.   You can choose Low rise which sits below the belly, Medium which is low on the belly and High that rolls over the belly.

    May 12, 2010 by barbara

    While the hubs was busy looking for employment screening program, I was checking out some fabulous stuff on some of my favorite online sites.  We plan to go away for a short break at the beach in a couple of weeks time.  Well, I reckon that some new new clothes and shoes would be nice for the getaway.   Below are some of the things which I heart.


    Straw Basket from


    Benji’s Linen Cargo Pants from FreePeople


    Turquoise Dot Disk Ring from FreePeople


    FES Rompers from FreePeople


    Handmade Swedish Clogs from Free People

    Ok, I know the clogs are not exactly appropriate for the beach but I just love its design and colour.  They do look well when paired with shorts, no?

  7. Mother and Daughter Tote Bag

    May 10, 2010 by barbara


    A friend of mine told me that she received a very special gift on Mother’s Day, given to her by her husband, on behalf of their 4 year daughter.  It is the Mother and Daughter Tote Bag which  I am sure every mother would love to have.  The bag is equipped with an extra handle for the child to help mom with it.  Children are always happy and proud to lend the adults a helping hand.  This trendy bag also promote safe shopping as the children will be so occupied with helping the adults with the bag that they will be less likely to wander.  What a cool bag eh?  My friend loves the bag and she told me that it seems like just yesterday she was popping the best prenatal vitamins. Now her baby has grown up so much and even made her a Mother’s Day card.

  8. Organizing Your Handbags With Good To Go Bag

    May 7, 2010 by barbara

    I love to switch handbags and usually my bags are fairly big.  Yes, I love big, roomy bags.  I put everything in my bag except the kitchen sink :)  However, it is always a big headache for me when I transfer bags because of the things I have to take out.  Once in a while, I would leave a lipstick or my medication behind.  My friend just told me about this cool Good to Go bag which can help me to organize my bag and make the transfers between bags such a breeze.   Though it cannot hold a tm-t88iv, the Good to Go bag has many pockets for me to keep my keys, cards, sunglasses, wipes, lipsticks, mobile phone and more.  Check out for more information.
