    August 8, 2012 by barbara

    How was your weekend peeps? It was great one for me. I got to spend some time with good friends on Saturday. My friend hosted a bbq at his home and besides enjoying the good food, we all had the chance to watch my friend playing on his epiphone joe pass emperor ii electric guitar.  He plays with his band mates at a local bar on weekends just for fun.  Oh, my friend also has this nifty looking TomBox amplifier which was made using discarded loudspeakers.  Ain’t it cool?

  4. J Crew Love

    August 1, 2012 by barbara

    While my spouse was checking out the playbook for sale, I hopped over to my favourite website – J Crew to do some window shopping.   My girl friend was wearing a pair of lovely jeans from J Crew the other day when we were having lunch and I am head over heels in love with it.   She was wearing a neon pair of toothpick jeans with an Oxford boy shirt. A lovely combination.    I am thinking of getting a pair of the toothpick jeans in Dark Poppy.  Let me go check out more.

  5. Getting Organized With Accessories Organizer

    July 29, 2012 by barbara

    While I was out looking for custom car seat covers for my dad’s car,  I stumbled upon a very nice jewellery organizer at Diva.  If you do not know already, Diva is my favourite shop to go to for accessories.  This Australian brand has a huge range of affordable and cool accessories for women.    I have been on a lookout for an organizer to keep all my accessories.  They are all in a box right now and it is pretty difficult for me to choose what I want to wear.  So, having an organizer is just great.  I cannot seem to find the organizer on Diva’s website.  Here is a similar one which I saw at Amazon.  I cannot wait to sort out my accessories.

  8. Espadrilles For Summer

    July 14, 2012 by barbara

    I was helping a friend to sort out some wholesale clothes which she intends to sell at flea market on Sunday when she showed me her new pair of espadrilles.   She bought it from Gap.    It is a cute black and white striped canvas, and it looks very comfortable.  I used to wear espadrilles when I was a teenager.  It was a trend back in the 80’s.   Perhaps I should get myself a pair now.

  9. J Lo Perfume

    July 13, 2012 by barbara

    I am a fan of Jennifer Lopez or J Lo as she is better known.  I started listening to her songs after I saw her on tv belting out ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’.  Jennifer Lopez was born in 1969 in The Bronx, New York.  She started her career as a Fly Girl in In Living Colour and then as a back up dancer for Janet Jackson.  Besides a chart-smashing career, she has become the highest paid Latin American actress.  J Lo has appeared in various movies such as Selena, Monster-in-law, Maid in Manhattan and the recent What To Expect When You Are Expecting.   She has sold more than 70 million records throughout the world and is one of the best-selling music artists of all times.  J Lo also has a fashion line called J Lo By Jennifer Lopez which includes clothing, swimwear and accessories.  I still remember the famous green Versace dress with a plunging neckline which she wore to the Grammy Awards in 2000.

    J Lo began her perfume venture in 2002 and ever since then she has been releasing a fragrant or two every year.  Her first fragrance was Glow, followed by Still.  In 2005, Miami Glow and Love at First Glow were released.  Then in 2008, the Deseo line was launched.  Sunkissed Glow and My Glow was launched in 2009.  I have seen them at the perfume shop and so far I have tried JLo Perfume Glow and  Love at First Glow.  I really like the scent. In 2010, Love and Glamour and Blue Glow were released, followed by L.A. Glow and Love and Light in 2011.    Recently, I have been seeing the latest release in the media – Glowing.  I would love to get my hands on Glowing.

    In her forties now, J Lo is in her element.  She is currently touring North and South America.    She is also a judge and mentor on the hit TV programme American Idol.

  10. Want A Facebook Ice-cream?

    July 10, 2012 by barbara

    Everyone is into Facebook right now. A clever designer just invented the Facebook Ice-cream dubbed “The Face cream”. The Croatian designer just turned the iconic logo into a lip-smacking treat.

    It certainly looks delicious. Want to take a bite out of Facebook? Unfortunately, this is only a concept. I cannot wait for this to be real as I want to know how it taste like.  I hope the ice-cream companies are taking note of this.
