  1. Bagatelles & Co.

    December 19, 2011 by barbara

    While the man was busy shopping for gps trailer tracking, I had my hands or more like my eyes full with Bagatelles and Co.  They have such a lovely range of sweet handbags.  I am in love!    The bags at this Etsy store have a vintage feel to it.  I wish I could buy all of them.  If only Santa would grant my wish this Christmas.  Take a look at these lovelies.

  6. Wrapping Paper Ornaments

    December 5, 2011 by barbara

    If you are looking for something colourful to decorate your home for Christmas, then you may like these Wrapping Paper Ornaments from The Land of Nod.  They come in a set of 6 and are just perfect for the Christmas tree.  These ornaments are made of paper mache and are hand-painted.  Actually I think once Christmas is over, you can use these ornaments for birthday parties because they are not in the traditional Christmas colours.

  7. Bags I Love

    November 30, 2011 by barbara

    I am in the midst of looking for a nice handbag right now.  I want one that is not too casual and yet big enough for me to put all my things in there.  I love big handbags because I carry a lot of things with me.  Lipsticks, eye drop, wet wipes, medication, raincoat for my daughter, purse, keys, handphones, etc.  Yeah, basically everything except the kitchen sink.  I just came across this nice handbag store online – Ellingtonhandbags.com and I am in love.   I have my eyes on a few of them.

    November 26, 2011 by barbara

    I just came across this lovely online gift shop that offers items which are uniquely Japanese. I have a friend who loves everything about Japan. Its culture, fashion, food and etc. I am sure she will be thrilled to know this online store.  I browse through the website just and found a few things that I really like.

  9. Comfortable Sandals For Travelling

    November 22, 2011 by barbara

    My sister who is going on a trip with her girlfriends very soon is on the look out for a pair of comfortable shoes.  She needs one because there will be a lot of walking involve and she needs a pair of shoes that will not tire out her legs.   She does not want sneakers but a pair of stylish sandals.  While my hubby was busy looking for chippewa boots online, I stumbled upon a few pairs of nice sandals which I think my sister would like.

  10. Organizing The Accessories With Trove

    November 21, 2011 by barbara

    Right now I am so loving this Trove accessories organizer from Quirky.com.  It is a great way organize and display the jewelries.  The Trove features a necklace rail with 12 hooks, a mesh screen for earrings, 4 long hooks for bangles, watches or bracelets, 3 small drawers to hold rings, 2 larger bins for longer items and a slide to the side mirror.  This is just something that I need badly in my bedroom.  My accessories are kept in a big bin and it is hard for me to find them.   With the Trove, I can easily see the necklaces, rings, bracelets that are in my collection. Ok, next I would need to find some organizational bins or shelves to keep my clothes neatly in the closet.
