  1. Beach Towels For Children

    May 23, 2012 by barbara

    I know my 7 year old is going to love this cute Princess Hooded Beach Towel.  Yes, she is still at the Princess stage.  The beach towel is so colourful.  It is a great way to keep the little ones dry at the beach pool.  Made of 100% cotton.  Available at Bed Bath & Beyond.

     


  2. Portable Highchair

    May 19, 2012 by barbara

    When my kid was a toddler, I do not fancy having her seated on the highchair when we eat out.  The highchairs at the eateries are usually wobbly and dirty.  I would usually do a wipe-down with the baby wipes first to clean the chair.  If you are like me, then you may want to take a look at MyLittleSeat, a compact fabric highchair that can be folded into the size of a diaper.   It features a 5-point harness system and is extremely durable.   I like its colour and design.

    May 15, 2012 by barbara

    Right after I have checked out the answering services for our new office, I went online to visit my favourite shopping blogs earlier today.  That was when I stumbled upon this awesome website that sells eco-friendly, 100% recycled custom-designed stickers that are just great for children play.  Box Play For Kids turn old cereal boxes, milk cartons, toilet paper rolls, shoe boxes or any cardboard boxes into new toys for kids.   Ain’t that fun?  This is so good for the kids’ imagination.   So, if you are looking for green crafts for your children, do hop over to Box Play For Kids today.

     


  4. I am A Pinaholic

    May 11, 2012 by barbara

    Did I mention that I love Pinterest?  I can actually spend hours just browsing this site.  I bet all Pinterest fans do that.  With 15 Boards and 890 pins, I am a Pinaholic.  You can find virtually anything in Pinterest such as Film, Fitness, Technology and even what is the best cable tray. Besides fashion and food recipes, my favourite category is craft.  There is virtually nothing that these creative people cannot do.  I get so inspired seeing all the wonderful crafts pinned in this virtual board. I have been looking for Teacher’s Appreciation gift ideas and I found these at Pinterest.

    Here is something that I really need in the kitchen – The Scrap Trap from Taylor Gifts.  The Scrap Trap helps to keep the counter and sink clear while we prepare food.  All those peelings, shells, scraps and more can be easily scrape into the bin for quick garbage collection or composting.   This plastic bin holds up to 2 quarts and can be easily clipped onto any standard drawer or cabinet door.   It is dishwasher safe too.

     


  6. Hopscotch Rug For Children’s Bedroom

    May 4, 2012 by barbara

    I love to play Hopscotch when I was a kid.  I love to draw on the sidewalk or the porch and then take turns to play with my sister.  It was so much fun.  I have introduced this game to my kid and she likes it too.  Playing hopscotch is way better than spending time in front of the TV or Ipad.   I chanced upon this rug at Amazon.com and I think it will be perfect for her bedroom.  Not only can it serve as a rug, it can also be a play thing for her room. Now let’s see if I can find any promo codes for this item.

  7. Birthday Gift For Fathers

    May 1, 2012 by barbara

    So while the spouse was fixing the corner TV mount in the living room, I was on the internet browsing my favourite stores to look for a gift.  My dad is celebrating his birthday next month and I thought I would get him a unique gift.  I like some recycled items I came across earlier.  There is nothing more meaningful that gifts made from recycled material huh?

  8. Summer Bags From Gap

    May 1, 2012 by barbara

    Have you checked out Gap?  Its new collection is so fun and bright.  As a bag lover, I did not hesitate to check out the Bag Collection right away.  Oh, they just give me butterflies in the tummy. There are so many straw bags and totes that I like.  Perhaps I should get one straw bag and one tote bag.  Too many? Nah!

    After checking out what is cpa network, I went over to my favourite site for some window shopping.  Guess what I found?  Espadrilles!  My all-time favourite shoes.  They are so comfortable and not to mention cute.  These no-nonsense slip-ons can go anywhere.  Espadrilles are a must-have for warmer season.   They can keep your feet cool during the summer days.

  10. Buntings & Banners

    April 20, 2012 by barbara

    While the spouse was busy checking out the ceiling lights for our living room, I have been on the computer for a while now, looking for buntings.  Recently, I have been rather obsessed with buntings.  Many people posted DIY buntings at Pinterest and I became hooked.  I would love to decorate my daughter’s bedroom with some buntings.  Maybe I can create some myself or get them at Hip Hooray.  This online store has a wide variety of buntings, flags, pennants, garlands or whatever you might called them.  All their products are made with sustainable materials and are designed to be reused many times, and can be 100% recycled.
