  1. J Crew Love

    August 1, 2012 by barbara

    While my spouse was checking out the playbook for sale, I hopped over to my favourite website – J Crew to do some window shopping.   My girl friend was wearing a pair of lovely jeans from J Crew the other day when we were having lunch and I am head over heels in love with it.   She was wearing a neon pair of toothpick jeans with an Oxford boy shirt. A lovely combination.    I am thinking of getting a pair of the toothpick jeans in Dark Poppy.  Let me go check out more.

  2. Getting Organized With Accessories Organizer

    July 29, 2012 by barbara

    While I was out looking for custom car seat covers for my dad’s car,  I stumbled upon a very nice jewellery organizer at Diva.  If you do not know already, Diva is my favourite shop to go to for accessories.  This Australian brand has a huge range of affordable and cool accessories for women.    I have been on a lookout for an organizer to keep all my accessories.  They are all in a box right now and it is pretty difficult for me to choose what I want to wear.  So, having an organizer is just great.  I cannot seem to find the organizer on Diva’s website.  Here is a similar one which I saw at Amazon.  I cannot wait to sort out my accessories.

    If you are looking for a bug repellant spray to keep you away from the nasty mosquitoes, well you may want to take a look at the Intelligent Nutrients Certified Organic Bug Repellent Serum from Spirit Beauty Lounge.  This perfume is made to attract human and at the same time repel stinging or biting insects.  It has a skin-loving and non-greasy combination of oils that conditions and softens while providing moisture resistance.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Mini Boombox MP3 Speakers

    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.

  8. Cotton Candy Tin Holders

    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?

    Oh I have just stumbled upon this online store called Rie Elise Larsen and it has the most amazing things there.  Rie Elise Larsen is well known for their paper products which include paper designs, lampshades, storage boxes, notebooks, posters, wrapping paper and etc.  I think I can spend just hours browsing this store.   You know how much I love colourful items made of paper huh?  They also have tea towels, textiles, lamps and hooks/hangers.  Here are what I am loving right now.

  10. 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.
