While my spouse is busy looking for the cheapest davidoff cigars, I have been scanning my favourite online stores to shop for a pair of black casual heels. I need one which would go well with shorts, denims or 3/4 pants. I just threw away my 3-year old wedge platform from Nine West because the leather has cracked and started to peel. I intend to get another wedge shoe because they are so comfortable and versatile. I was at Nine West just now and saw a few wedges that I really like.
Lynne Slingback Wedge
Cicely Leather Wedge
Zenovia Cork Leather Sandal
Now, which one should I get? Decisions, decisions.

My daughter will be celebrating her 6th birthday next month. I still have not decided what present to give her. My spouse suggested that we get her a bicycle since she has been asking for one with a basket when she saw it at a bicycle shop in the mall. Oh, she also prefers one that is pink as pink is her favourite colour. I wonder if we could find a folding bike too. It would be easy to bring along to the park. If not, we may need to get a thule bike rack for our car.

Check out this cool kitchen gadget from Royal VKB. It is a double-sided hand juicer which allows you to juice without any mess. Just place the Citrange juicer directly on the glass. It has a built-in funnel which will guide the juice into the glass. Another great thing is that the Citrange also filters out the seeds. The rounded side is for bigger fruits like grapefruits or orange and the pointy side is for lemons or limes. I love to have my juices in the morning before I pop some pre workout supplements. The Citrange is just what I need.

Before I begin to look for diet pills that work, I thought I would share with you this lovely gift bows idea from How About Orange. Everyone knows that I love paper craft. So when I saw these pretty recycled gift bows made from yellow pages, I was thrilled. First, cut out 1 inch wide strips from pages of the book. Then cut a few full-length strips as well as a few strips that are 3″ shorter. Form the strips into an “eight” shape and tape the ends in the center. Arrange the longer strips to form a circle and staple it in the middle. Repeat with the shorter strips and add the single loop to the center using double-sided tape. For more craft ideas, do visit How About Orange.
