    Love this fashion boo boos from Forever 21.  Nothing soothes or heal a cut better than a chic band-aid.   A packet of Fashion Boo Boos features polka dot, heart and bow prints.  There are 24 pieces in a packet ($4).  Psst…no one would know if you would like to fake a cut just so you can put a cute band-aid on your arm.  I know someone who does that once in a while.


  5. Keep Warm With A Throw

    January 29, 2011 by barbara

    Oh I am loving this Applique Herringbone Throw from Nordstrom.  Actually I love everything with appliques embellished on them.  This throw is soft and made of wool/acrylic and nylon.  It is big enough for 2 persons.  The charming floral appliques made this throw stands out.  It is pretty chilly these days, especially at night because of the constant rain.  I can picture myself with this throw on the sofa, reading a book or scanning for merchandising jobs in the newspaper.


  6. D-I-Y Decorations For The Chinese New Year

    January 28, 2011 by barbara

    I have been looking around for ideas on how to make my own decorations for the coming Chinese New Year.    There are so many great ideas out there.  I am left feeling very inspired.  When I came across the Dogwood Flowers paper cutting from Martha Stewart craft blog, I decided to do them using the red envelopes (angpow).    Then I saw another pretty decorating idea – Paper Butterflies.  Just trace the template onto some colourful papers and cut out the shapes.  Attach the butterflies onto the lanterns with tape or glue.  Pretty easy eh?  Now, if you have leftover Christmas Party Invitations, you can use them to cut the butterfly shapes. Christmas Party Invitations are so colourful and vibrant, and they make very pretty paper butterflies.


  7. Forever 21 Spring 2011

    January 26, 2011 by barbara

    I was at Forever 21’s website just now to check out its latest collection when I saw a familiar style – Flared Jeans.  Are bell-bottoms making a comeback this year?   Well, I don’t really mind as long as it is not baggy jeans.  I know some people cannot stand bell bottoms after growing up in them. Pants or jeans with a slightly wider than boot cut with slimmer thigh and waist is pretty cool.  Skinny jeans fans need not worry though.  According to the fashion gurus, they are still around.  What about you? Do you like bell-bottoms?

    After helping my friend to check out the bridesmaid dresses for her coming wedding, I went to look for some wedding favour ideas when I stumbled upon this cute box of pears.  Cute eh?  They are not edible though.  These cute pears are actually memo pads from D-Bros.  I love them.  You can also find memo pads in the shape of apples.  There are 150 sheets in one.  A nice way to add some fun to your work table.

    January 15, 2011 by barbara

    I am a big fan of sticky notes.  This is probably a sign that age is catching up.  I tend to forget things easily hence sticky notes come in handy.  I have them in my office and my home.  I really the Kitchen Sticky Notes from  It features a shopping list and cute notes for flagging recipes like “great for kids”, “didn’t work” and “too hard”.  I can also write notes and reminders such as “buy ephedra diet pills”.
