    Heading to the beach this summer?  Well, here is something that you may want to bring along.  It is the Saress Beach Cover Up that is very easy and flattering to wear.   No fasteners, ties or knots are required.  You can just simply slip the Saress around the back, thread the opposite arms through the loops and you are set to go.  It only takes a few seconds to look stunning at the beach.   The Saress is made from a cool and crease-free fabric which allows the wearer to move with ease and confident.   Check it out at Sarees.com.

     


  2. Espadrilles For Summer

    July 14, 2012 by barbara

    I was helping a friend to sort out some wholesale clothes which she intends to sell at flea market on Sunday when she showed me her new pair of espadrilles.   She bought it from Gap.    It is a cute black and white striped canvas, and it looks very comfortable.  I used to wear espadrilles when I was a teenager.  It was a trend back in the 80’s.   Perhaps I should get myself a pair now.


  3. Want A Facebook Ice-cream?

    July 10, 2012 by barbara

    Everyone is into Facebook right now. A clever designer just invented the Facebook Ice-cream dubbed “The Face cream”. The Croatian designer just turned the iconic logo into a lip-smacking treat.

    It certainly looks delicious. Want to take a bite out of Facebook? Unfortunately, this is only a concept. I cannot wait for this to be real as I want to know how it taste like.  I hope the ice-cream companies are taking note of this.

    July 10, 2012 by barbara

    While the spouse is busy checking out the Shoei Qwest helmets for his new ride,  I am looking for a new mobile phone.  I am still contemplating if I should get the iPhone or an Android phone.  Anyway, what’s important is that I get to use Instagram and also play music on my mobile phone.  I want to listen to music when I’m running.  You can imagine my delight when I saw this cute Mini Boombox MP3 Speakers at Fred Flare.  It sure brings back memories of the 80’s.   This mini boombox is actually an iPhones and iPods dock.  When attached to your device, it allows you to share your music with everyone.  The Mini Boombox MP3 Speaker’s measurement is 2.5″x1. 25″x0. 5.   How cool eh?  Looks like I may have to get an iPhone if I want this Mini Boombox MP3 Speaker.

    I am loving these cute Cotton Candy Design Tin Holders from Pearl Rivers.  These brightly coloured tins have a vintage touch to it.   When I was little, I wish to have one of these to keep my coins, hair clips or some treasured knick-knacks.   You can also get them to store tea, coffee or sugar.  Perhaps you may want to get a few of these tin holders to decorate your kitchen too.  How endearing, right?

  7. 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.
