  3. How To Hide Flabby Arms

    August 14, 2010 by barbara

    Lately, I have taken a liking to cardigans.  I like cardis because they are very versatile.  I can always wear a sleeveless top with a cardi over it so that my flabby arms are not visible.  I have never worn any sleeveless tops before. Well, not when I am out of the house because  I am very conscious of my flabby arms.  With the cardis, I can wear whatever tops I want now.  Perhaps I should get myself an elliptical trainer to stay in shape and tone my arms eh?

    I was invited to dinner at a friend’s house a couple of days ago.  My friend has just been promoted and the dinner is to celebrate his promotion.  I was chatting with his wife while she was preparing food in the kitchen and can’t help but notice the stainless steel shield she was using.    It was a finger guard which helps to protect the finger while slicing and dicing vegetables.  It features a welded ring which can fits the chef’s middle finger.  The tip of the shield holds the food in place while you cut/sliced.   What a brilliant tool.   I think I should get one too.


  5. Pepper Saver

    I cook peppers quite a fair bit and I also put them in the porridge for my child.  However, I usually use half a pepper in the porridge.  What do I do with the balance?  I keep it in the fridge to be used the next time.  Usually the leftover pepper would turn wrinkly after a few days.   A while ago I came across a cute pepper-shaped container which helps to keep the air and light out of cut peppers.    The Pepper Saver is perfect for keeping the cut peppers stay fresh longer.  Available at HarrietCarter.com.


  6. Lose Weight With Arctic Gym

    August 12, 2010 by barbara

    A friend of mine has been dieting and exercising for the past 3 months. She has recently lost about 5kg and her target is to lose 6kg.  She’s doing such a great job and is an inspiration to people like me who are trying to lose weight.  My friend said she has been using The Arctic Gym to keep fit.  It is a video game which detects movements and measures the performance and fitness progress.  It comes with a mat with thirty pressure sensitive pads with sensors to detect the feet and body positions.  There are three preset exercise modes to choose from – muscle workout, aerobics and yoga.   I think I will buy the top diet pills and The Arctic Gym to shed some kilos.

  7. Recycled Wine Bag Or Wine Caddy

    August 12, 2010 by barbara

    While my husband while busy helping his friend to look up the 5th wheel warranty, I was scouring the internet for unique wine bags or wine holders.  We have a party to attend next weekend and we would like to present the host with a bottle of good wine.  I figure that a nice wine holder would be better than the normal gift bag.  I found the most lovely wine bag at The West End.  It is made of discarded newspaper and coated in plastic.

    Another one which I like is the one below which is made from pages of twisted old magazines.   Using these recycled wine caddy or wine bag to carry the wine bottles is rather eye-catching, don’t you think so?

    I saw these cute Okra Mastard Vegetable Keep Sacks from Reuseit.com which are pretty handy in the kitchen. While you may not use it to keep your macanudo cigars,  they are great for keeping potatoes, onions, garlic and more.  These keep sacks protect veggies from the light hence you can have fresher and longer-lasting veggies.   Plus, they do not take up space too.  Just hang them on the wall to keep your veggies.   If you want to waste less food, then do get a few of these keep sacks.

    Zara is one of my favourite stores.  I love its clothing and accessories.  Its everyday casual wear is so chic and stylish.  Zara has recently launched its Fall 2010 campaign.  There are a few pieces of clothing which I absolutely adore, especially the knitwear in soft, neutral mute colours.  Love the Fall colours.  Zara Fall 2010 collection is so simple and cosy looking. The campaign featured model Toni Garrn and was shot by photographer David Sims.
