  1. Mini Cooler That Is So Cool

    August 15, 2011 by barbara

    While the spouse and his friend were discussing about gps map, I was surfing the internet for some birthday gift ideas for a friend’s 17 year old daughter.  I came upon this funky mini cooler from Pottery Barn.  Oh it is just so cute. This mini fridge can keep four soda cans and consumes less power than a traditional refrigerator.   I think it is the perfect gift for a teenager, don’t you think so?  I may just get another one for my office.

    Hey Peeps.  Want to check out a lovely Japanese online store?

  4. Must Have Accessories

    August 2, 2011 by barbara

    I am in the mood for shopping again.  So much to buy but so little money.  Getting some cash advances sounds like a good idea now because I have just seen a few things which I adore at Etsy – The Shop At 144.  This shop creates unique fashion and wedding accessories that are simple and feminine.  I would like to get the mini shoe clips which is great for jazzing up my old shoe.

    The Chalkboard Office Accessories from CB2 are just so much fun.  You can write, draw or doodle on the office products.  How cool is that?  You can get pencil/pen holder, storage boxes and magazine holder with painted chalkboard surface.  Once you get too bored with your messages, labels or to-dos, just wipe them off with a soft dry cloth.  So fun eh?  When you buy either one of the products, you will get one piece of chalk included.  Oh, I cannot wait to get a few of the storage boxes for my scanning software and knick-knacks.

    I use lemons very often for my salad dinner.  While lemon is filled with lots of goodness, I do not enjoy squeezing it.   I get the juice everywhere and then I would have to pick out the pips.  Thank God for this Lemon Squeezer which I came upon yesterday.  A very useful tool for the kitchen.  It is available at Gnr8.biz.
