  4. Alessi Apostrophe Orange Peeler

    May 13, 2011 by barbara

    I came across this nifty orange peeler – Alessi Apostrophe from yesterday.  What is does is that it cuts through the peel and leave decorative marks on the orange.  The Alessi Apostrophe also features an ergonomic design which allows the hand to hold easily.  It is made from precision-cast steel with mat finish for easier grip.   Unless I work in a restaurant or I am someone who love throwing fancy parties and use oranges as decoration, I do not think I would get this cool orange peeler.  Would you?


  5. Best Place To Buy Cigars Online

    May 12, 2011 by barbara

    Are cigars healthier than smoking? I have heard people commenting that cigars are healthier because you do not inhale the smoke.  What a cigar smoker does is just suck the smoke into his/her mouth and then blow the smoke out.  It takes an hour or 2 to smoke a cigar so perhaps if you do not smoke it very often, it is not as bad as smoking a cigarette?  My spouse is a smoker but he has yet to try cigar smoking.  He has mentioned that he would like to try it out one day.   He wants to take a stroll down the street to get a cup of coffee and the newspaper, and then head to the park with a cigar.  That is one of life’s simple pleasures.  Do you or anyone in your family or even your friends smoke cigars?  I just came across a great place buy cigars online.   You do not have to spend a lot of money on good cigars.

    Cigar Place is the best place to buy the freshest cigars at a discount price.  This online store has a huge inventory of cigars and accessories.  Whether you are looking for limited edition premium tobaccos or cheap cigar in bundles, Cigar Place has everything.  They carry top brands such as Rocky Patel, Avo, Padron and many more.  Cigar Place guarantees the freshness and quality of its products.  If you are not satisfied after smoking two cigars which you have purchased from them, Cigar Place will offer an exchange and also pay for all the shipping costs.  They will also refund your money including your shipping cost if you are still not satisfied.  Cigar Place accept payment through Visa, American Express, Discover, money orders and checks.  Another great thing is that Cigar Place also accept international orders.  So no matter where you are, you can still place order for your favourite cigars.  So hurry and check out the oliva cigar or Rocky patel cigars at Cigar Place now.

    While the man was busy scouring the internet for refurbished laptops, I am pulling my hair out seeing all the cables on the work table and the mess they are creating.  Not only do they look so untidy, I am also having a problem cleaning the table with all the cables around.  I just stumbled upon this cute Cable Monkey at and I believe this is just what I need right now.  This cute monkey is available in grey, black and brown and can hold a lot of cables together with its long arms.  No more messy tangled cables anymore when you have Cable Monkey.

    My daughter is celebrating her birthday this month and I am in the midst of preparing her party packs.   I really enjoy doing this because I am trying to make some cute party packs for her.  Yeah, I like DIY stuff.  You can imagine my delight when I stumbled upon some really cute paper bags at Shop Sweet Lulu.  They are just perfect for those who like to DIY the packs like me.  My favourite are the cute Dottie bags and sweet Gingham ones.  They also have loads of pretty party decors like balloons, tissue pouf, party flags and more.

When it comes to gift for her birthday, I found a few really awesome things at Personal Creations.  It is really hard to pick out a gift since everything is so lovely there.  Perhaps I could get her aunts and grandparents to buy her gifts at Personal Creations too.  I have narrowed down to a few things.
