  1. Ballet Flats Are Wardrobe Staples In Every Closet

    September 2, 2010 by barbara

    I was relaxing on the log furniture after dinner at my friend’s house a few days ago when she brought out her new pair of ballet flats to show me.  I was over the moon to see her shoes.  In case you don’t know, I am into ballet flats now.  They are just the prettiest shoes on earth.  Ultra feminine and oh so stylish, the ballet flats are very popular for those who want to dress up without adding height or putting a strain on your feet.  My friend bought hers from Pretty Ballerinas.  Below are a few of my favorite ballet flats.   The one in red may soon be mine.

    I love these organic cotton lunch bags from GrassRootsStore.com.  Ain’t they cute?  These sizeable organice cotton lunch bags are made with kids in mind.  Each bag comes with a protective (phthalate-free vinyl) removable liner which is great to wash away any spillage or dirt.  It also has snap enclosures and is washable.   If you want to go green, get one of these cotton lunch bags now.

  3. Egg Boilers To Make Your Life Easier

    September 1, 2010 by barbara

    Like the modern furniture that are designed to make your life easier, The Eiko egg broiler holds the egg in place to enable the user to retrieve the egg easily when it is done cooking.  The egg hangs down from the edge of the pot into the boiling water while the handle of the spoon stays cool.  When the egg is boiled, just remove the spoon and rinse the egg with cool water.  The Eiko egg broiler functions as an egg cup as well.

    It is not easy to find a nice tote for the man.  He does not want something that is too girly-looking but big enough to carry all his necessities.  While browsing the internet, I came across this Tote Bag for Men from TempleBags.com.  It is made out of re-purposed WWII military issue parachutes.  Cool eh?  What’s great about this nylon bag is it is lightweight and can be folded into a 4″ x 4″ pocket-size when not in use.   Let me check with my man and see if he likes it or not.

    Growing Through Life is the TVB Drama that I am watching currently.  This modern series drama replaces A Pillow Case of Mysteries II.  Do you know why I enjoy watching it?  Well, it has been a while since I’ve watched a drama starring Cecilia Yip. She is one of my favourite actresses and a very talented one.  This 30-episode drama was filmed in Shanghai and Hong Kong.  This drama also features actors and actresses from China.  I haven’t heard of them before though but I really like Damian Lau, Bosco Wong and Raymond Lau.  I have watched 10 episodes so far.  Below is the synopsis.

    Synopsis:
    Hoi Sing and his mother, Ho Wai Sum run a home appliance manufacturing factory. Hoi Sing’s uncle, Hoi Leung wants to acquire their business at all costs. Leung is money minded snob who doesn’t place much interest in family ties. Leung’s wife, Cheng Ming Chu and daughter, Hoi Mei Sze try hard to help Leung mend ties with Sing and eventually succeed when they manage to convince Leung to put the acquisition of the business on hold.

    Leung wishes to own the land of which the factory sits on and plants a spy, Fong Lai King in Sing’s factory. To help her son and convince Leung to give up on acquiring their business, Wai Sum reveals to Leung a long-kept secret. To strengthen their business, Sing invites his friend, Chung Lam Tai to work with him.

    Unfortunately for Sing, Lam Tai betrays him and sided with Leung. To add salt to the wound, Sing’s fiencee, Chuk Yiu Kwan calles off their wedding. These unfortunate events indirectly forced Sing to be even more determined; forcing him to use bolder strategies and tactics against his family member.

  8. No More Wardrobe Malfunction

    August 25, 2010 by barbara

    When I am shopping for tops, I have to refrain from buying some of them because they are low cut.   I know I could wear a tube inside but it doesn’t look good all the time.  I am glad that I finally found something which allows me to wear low cut tops without me fidgeting :)  It is a lil button called  Bosom Button which can hold the clothing in place better than safety pins or tape.  Bosom Button is made with sparkling Swarovski crystals and pearl cabochons.   With the Bosom Button, I do not have to worry about my gaping shirt anymore.  Available at Solutions.com.

  9. Shopping – Online & Offline

    August 23, 2010 by barbara

    The weekend came and gone in a flash.  Time surely flies.    So what do you do during weekends?  I love going to the malls or flea markets for some shopping.  When I am not at the mall, I love to sit in front of the computer and browse the online stores.  Yes I do visit online stores a lot and I have been buying from a few of my favourite stores.  I have a friend who does not like to do her shopping online because she said she prefers to be able to see and feel her merchandise and have them scanned by a barcode scanner.  My friend feels that it is safer to shop this way.  Well, there are pros and cons with shopping online and offline.  One of my favourite online stores is Etsy.com.  I just love handmade products.  Right now, I am interested in this Red Lantern switch plate cover for my home.  Lovely, ain’t it?
