I stumbled upon these beautiful and unique leather handled carry bags from SwarmHome.com. These bags are made by hand using vintage oil paintings which were sourced from Belgium and Dutch Flea markets. Each bag is a work of art. They are strong, versatile and spacious. The bags are designed to show signs of wear with use and age so that their stories live on. I like the one with a long handle.

I cannot wait to watch No Regrets (Rosy Business Part 2). I have been waiting for this series to be released for so long. All my favourite casts from Rosy Business are back in this 32-episode drama. No Regrets is replacing The Comeback Clan. Is this the final drama for TVB for the year 2010? I wonder if Wayne Lai will be taking the Drama King title like last year. Ok, first, I would go wash my face, put on some anti wrinkle lotion, get ready some snacks and then make myself a cuppa. No Regrets, here I come.
Guangzhou is in a state of political turmoil in the 1930s. Gangsters are on a rampage and opium trading becomes rampant. As they watch the illicit profits from opium trading escalate, the government forms the Anti-Smoking Bureau under the guise of suppressing opium, but the bureau is under the influence of CHENG LONG-KWAN (Yueh Hua), the gang’s kingpin. His eldest daughter CHENG KAU-MUI (Sheren Tang Shui Man) who is an unscrupulous person soon returns from Shanghai to reap the rewards. MUI meticulously plans her every move.
On the other hand, LAU SING (Wayne Lai Yiu Cheung) is the leader of the Criminal Investigation Team. He has worked hard all his life to ensure an easy trail for his family, especially for his bed-ridden younger sister LAU CHING (Fala Chen). Despite his hot temper, he values friendship and brotherhood more than anything else. Once, he almost sacrificed his life to help his timid teammate, TONG KAT (Pierre Ngo).
It is fated that MUI and SING should meet each other and survive many calamities. It is also fated that both are fierce contenders who will never give in, although mutual understanding and affection slowly grows between them.
Meanwhile, the Japanese army invades China and Guangzhou falls into the hands of the Japanese. MUI enters the darkest time in her life when her aunt CHENG LONG-HEI (Susan Tse) frames her.
Will SING always be by her side?

I know I should be looking for the best weight loss pills as I need to lose 5 pounds at least before the end of the month (miracle?) but I cannot help not posting about what I just saw. I do not know what has gotten into me lately because I just cannot take my eyes off wedges. I have been thinking a lot about them and visualizing how I would look in a pair of clogs. Here are a few of my favourite designs.
Osaka Wood Wedge from Free People
Swedish Clog by Swedish Hasbeens from Free People
The Westway clog from Madewell

In the mid 90’s, I bought myself a clear tote bag from Esprit. I loved the bag as it was big and I can fit many things inside it. Of course the contents of the bag were visible to many people. I usually kept my things in a medium size fabric bag and then put the said bag into the clear tote. I want a little bit of privacy especially when it comes to my makeup set, hoodia gordonii pills or my purse which I carry in my bag. Alas, after a few months, the plastic turned yellowish and I discarded it. Earlier today when I was at the mall, I saw a lady carrying a Polo Ralph Lauren Clear Pony Tote. It sure brought back memories of my Esprit bag. Now I am really interested in getting this Clear Pony Tote.

We still cannot decide what toys to get our daughter for Christmas. She did tell us that she would like to have a High School Musical school bag I was looking around on the internet and saw the cute personalized Alphabet Plates. Meal time have never been this magical. Made of melamine, you can pick a hair style, hair colour, eye colour, skin colour, accessories, the colour of the plate and personalized words or name for your child’s plate. What a cool idea. Maybe we should also get her a personalized plate. Oh so many things to choose from. I hope we can make up our mind very soon.

I was looking for a cheap car insurance for my cousin when my spouse asked me to check out this cute Kidscraft Playhouse Creation Cottage from Neiman Marcus. It is a great activity for kids who love to paint and colour. We think that our 5 year old will be very happy to have one to play with. This awesome color-it-yourself cottage can help kids to cultivate their imagination. The white cardboard consists of one door cutout, two window cutouts and one skylight cutout. We are still thinking if we should get it for Christmas or her birthday next year.

Love all the designs and fall colours. I have a thing for camel, brown and earthy tones. Below are a few of my favourite items at their store.
Printed smocked top
Turn-up shorts in faux suede. I have my eye on this pair of cute shorts.
Straight Leg Trousers
Fringed High Heeled Slip-Ons. This is in my shopping list as well 😉
