  1. Star Wars Cupcakes

    July 7, 2012 by barbara

    While the spouse was shopping for eye bolts last weekend, I walked around the cafes and saw some of the cutest cupcakes.  They were in chocolate and vanilla flavours but what was unique about them is that the Star Wars characters were stenciled onto the cupcakes.  Star Wars fans are going to love them.  I was wondering how they managed to do it until I saw these Star Wars Cupcake Stencil Set from Williams-Sonoma.  Arent’ they adorable?  Well you can even use them on your pancakes.

    June 25, 2012 by barbara

    Recently I attended a birthday party of a 7 year old boy which was held in his home.  The birthday theme is Splish Splash and there were a few pools filled with for the kids to play in.   After the cake blowing session, all the kids had a chance to beat a horse-shaped pinata.  A pinata doesn’t come cheap over here.  I was told that the parents paid RM170 for it.  Crazy right?  I just discovered this website where we can learn how to make a pinata in just 10 steps.  Here is the link :-  10 Steps To Make A Pinata.  Since I like doing craft so much, I want to try making a pinata for my daughter’s birthday next year.

    I chatted on the phone with my girlfriend last night and we talked about shopping.  My friend went to the Mango (MNG) Sales over the weekend and managed to grab a few things.   She got me all excited when she told me about her good buys.  I just went to their online store to check out the sales.  Managed to find a few items that I like.  Looks like I better hurry to the mall to grab some good buys.

  6. Colour Block Trend 2012

    June 15, 2012 by barbara

    2012 Spring  and Summer is all about bright colours.  I have been seeing many 2 or 3-colour tops and dresses.  I really like this trend, especially when there are vertical blocks on the side.  This creates a slimmer illusion.  Some fashion experts warned that wearing colour block garments can be pretty tricky if not problematic for short women.  Not all are pleasing and flattering.   So do make sure that the clothing are flattering, if not, it would be best to avoid this trend.

  7. Comfortable Shoes For Vacation

    June 11, 2012 by barbara

    Just before I went on vacation, I was busy looking for a nice pair of shoes that I can wear while on holiday.  I wanted a pair of stylish shoes that are comfortable.  I tried on some Birks, Clarks and Rockport but I couldn’t find any shoes that I really like.    Then a friend suggested that I look for FitFlops.  I went to the nearest mall and found them. Tried on a few designs such as Frou and Lolla but they don’t look nice on my feet.  Finally I tried on Sling and I was a happy camper.  It looks great on my feet and they are so comfortable.  I wore them everyday when I was on holiday and my feet didn’t feel tired at all.

    June 3, 2012 by barbara

    I have been looking around for a stainless steel plate for my daughter but to no avail.  It is so difficult to find one when you need it.  A friend told me about this cute Din Din Smart Stainless Steel Plate from InnoBaby.com.  It has five separate compartments that prevent food from sliding or mixing.  Made from the highest quality food grade type 304 stainless steel and is stain resistant.   I like its kid-friendly fun shape.  Definitely make eating a lot of fun especially for picky eaters.

     


  10. DIY Pinata For Birthday Parties

    May 30, 2012 by barbara

    I think for the past month, I attended at least 5 birthday parties, including my 7 year old’s party.  There is another birthday celebration coming up in a couple of week’s time which I have blogged about earlier.   Last weekend, I was at the birthday party of my friend’s 10 year old son.   The birthday boy is a music lover and he is taking drums and guitar lessons now.  Some of the birthday gifts he received include SKB Cases for his guitar and drum.  Such a lucky kid huh?   So at the party, there was a pinata which my friend made.  I was pretty impressed with my friend’s creativeness.  She told me she followed the steps from OhHappyDay.com on how to DIY the pinata.  That is just awesome.  I can’t wait to try doing one myself.  So if you are planning to get a pinata for a birthday party, why not check out OhHappyDay and make one yourself?
