  1. Best Fit Maternity Jeans

    May 14, 2010 by barbara

    Besides busy popping prenatal vitamin, my cousin who is 4 months pregnant has been on the lookout for a pair of maternity jeans.  It is very hard to find one that fits just right.  When I was pregnant, I couldn’t find one that fits me.  I was miserable because I love wearing jeans.  It is so comfortable and I can just basically do everything in the jeans.  My cousin wants to wear maternity jeans throughout her pregnancy and she asked me if I know where she can find some amazing ones.  The first place that came to my mind is Gap.  They have a range of fashionable jeans for the trendy moms-to-be.   You can choose Low rise which sits below the belly, Medium which is low on the belly and High that rolls over the belly.

    May 12, 2010 by barbara

    While the hubs was busy looking for employment screening program, I was checking out some fabulous stuff on some of my favorite online sites.  We plan to go away for a short break at the beach in a couple of weeks time.  Well, I reckon that some new new clothes and shoes would be nice for the getaway.   Below are some of the things which I heart.

    A friend of mine told me that she received a very special gift on Mother’s Day, given to her by her husband, on behalf of their 4 year daughter.  It is the Mother and Daughter Tote Bag which  I am sure every mother would love to have.  The bag is equipped with an extra handle for the child to help mom with it.  Children are always happy and proud to lend the adults a helping hand.  This trendy bag also promote safe shopping as the children will be so occupied with helping the adults with the bag that they will be less likely to wander.  What a cool bag eh?  My friend loves the bag and she told me that it seems like just yesterday she was popping the best prenatal vitamins. Now her baby has grown up so much and even made her a Mother’s Day card.


  4. Organizing Your Handbags With Good To Go Bag

    May 7, 2010 by barbara

    I love to switch handbags and usually my bags are fairly big.  Yes, I love big, roomy bags.  I put everything in my bag except the kitchen sink :)   However, it is always a big headache for me when I transfer bags because of the things I have to take out.  Once in a while, I would leave a lipstick or my medication behind.  My friend just told me about this cool Good to Go bag which can help me to organize my bag and make the transfers between bags such a breeze.   Though it cannot hold a tm-t88iv, the Good to Go bag has many pockets for me to keep my keys, cards, sunglasses, wipes, lipsticks, mobile phone and more.  Check out g2gbags.com for more information.
