  1. my wishlist

    April 2, 2012 by barbara

    While the spouse was on his laptop searching for duracell procell aa, I was on my computer, drooling over Madewell sandals.  Those are the latest collection for Spring and Summer.  I got butterflies in my tummy while looking at these fun shoes at Madewell.  They are just perfect for the warm weather.  Simply pair them with denim or a pair of shorts and you are all set.




    Time for some retail therapy soon.

    March 27, 2012 by barbara

    While the spouse was looking for teflon hose, I was busy shopping for baby gifts.  My spouse’s business partner and his wife are expecting a baby.  His wife is due to give birth next month.  I understand that they are expecting a baby girl.  Sweet.  So, I went online shopping  and narrowed down a few items which I think would be perfect for the baby.


    Flexi-Bath   A very convenient bath tub that can be folded away when not in use.

    I was reading the Ripped Freak reviews when a friend called and asked me to check out this pretty lace heart edge punch. She knows how much I love doing craft like party favors and wrapping presents.  Available at JoAnn Fabric and Craft store.

  6. Recycled Tin Cans

    March 6, 2012 by barbara

    You know, this DIY stuff is really making me fall head over heels in love with arts and crafts especially when it comes to paper crafts.  I am glued to the computer most of the time browsing creative blogs and pinterest.  If only I have more time.  I would love to just sit down and do my crafts.  Sometimes I even wish that my family or friends are planning a wedding so that I can help with some decor stuff.  I saw this cute idea on recycling tin cans into centerpieces at


    I can’t wait to do something with my stash of tin cans!

  7. I Am A Pinaholic

    March 6, 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. 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 think one would probably be able to find a tutorial on how to build steel buildings. Just yesterday, I chanced upon this lovely idea on how to decorate a mason jar.


    So simple and beautiful.  These jars are great as centerpiece for a wedding or dinner party.

  8. IKEA Regolit Lamp

    March 4, 2012 by barbara

    Just the other day when my spouse was at a store checking out the BBK electric fuel pump kit as he would like to get a replacement for his force-induction car,  I went shopping in IKEA.  I am a great fan of IKEA.  My hubby is a car-enthusiast so he spent like 2 hours checking out the electric fuel pump kits which means I had 2 hours in the Swedish store.  Actually, I have seen some inspiring DIY lamp using IKEA’s Regolit lamp from IKEA Hackers.  Therefore, I would like to do something too.  I did get myself 2 Regolit lamps.  Time to let the creative juice flows.


  9. Foldable Rainboots

    February 27, 2012 by barbara

    I am so loving this Folding Rainboot from  It is light-weight, water proof and very stylish too.  This folding welly is made from Redfoot’s revolutionary rubber called Spacetex X25 which is a unique material that allows the Rainboot to fold up into a small pouch.  How genius eh?   It also has a soft warm fleece lining to keep your feet warm.  If you want to look chic in the rain, get one now.


  10. Dress For Wedding

    February 23, 2012 by barbara

    My cousin is a musician and he performs at the local club every weekend with his bandmates.  He took guitar lessons since he was 10 and now he plays the fender electric bass .   He will be getting married this summer and he plans to have a beach wedding.  My cousin said that he and his bandmates will be performing at his wedding too.  Oh I just cannot wait.  I am sure it will be an awesome wedding.  I just found this lovely ethnic lace dress from Free People a while ago. I think it would be nice to wear to the beach wedding, don’t you think so?
