  1. Make Your Own Gift Tags

    December 18, 2012 by barbara

    If you don’t know already, I love wrapping gifts and d-i-y my own gift tags. Thanks to Pinterest and all the crafty blogs out there which leave me very inspired. I do not buy gift tags anymore and for wrapping, I use mainly kraft paper in white or brown. I found some pretty cool ideas on how you can d-i-y the gift tags with washi tapes, doilies and cardboard.


  2. A Girls’ Night Out

    December 13, 2012 by barbara

    This weekend I have been invited to a birthday bash of one of my close friends. She will be turning 40 and we plan to have a nice Italian dinner downtown with a few other friends. Right after dinner, we will be hitting the karaoke for some singing and maybe dancing too. I know it is going to be a fun and crazy night. We all love to sing, especially songs in the Eighties, when we were teens. Nothing beats singing with a wonderful vocopro uhf-5805 microphone and dance the night away with your buddies.  I cannot wait to wear my lace print sheer shift dress from Dorothy Perkins.


  3. love

    December 11, 2012 by barbara

    I was blog-hopping and spotted something which I absolutely adore right now.  It is this wraparound watch from Acacia.com.  The watch features long jeweled strands of semiprecious stones and silvertone beads on brown rope which makes the wrist looks like I am wearing a watch with 2 bracelets.  It looks so classy and unique.  The watch has a Japanese quartz movement, mother of pearl face and stainless steel back.  It has an adjustable loop and bead closure.

     


  4. Gift Ideas For Animal Lovers

    December 10, 2012 by barbara

    My cousin’s birthday falls on the same day as Christmas. It is a double celebration for her every year. Instead of getting her separate gifts, I usually buy her a big present. However, this year I would like to get her 2 gifts as I just saw something she likes but it is way below my usual budget. She has a Persian cat and I thought it would be great for her to have this laser-etched ornament.  Critter Gift Shop is a great place to get custom gifts for cat lovers or any other animal lovers too.

    Are you busy shopping for gifts? I have started my gift shopping last month and I am still doing it. It is a lot of fun to shop but sometimes I run out of ideas what to get. I have been visiting my favorite online stores and I thought I would share some gift ideas for friends and families here in my blog.   I spotted these at Cotton On Kids.

  7. Beautiful Gift Bucket For Christmas Gifts

    November 25, 2012 by barbara

    The time of giving is here. Christmas is about a month away. Are you busy shopping for gifts? I just love shopping for presents and you know me, I love wrapping them too. I was at Chewing The Cud and found some lovely storage buckets which can be used as gift buckets too. Just fill up the bucket with the present and wrap it with a transparent paper. The receiver will be thrilled to get the present as well as the gift bucket which is printed on 100% recycled canvas cloth with soy-based inks. I know I would.


  8. Gifts for him

    November 21, 2012 by barbara

    My brother-in-law is celebrating his 40th birthday in 2 weeks’ time.  I have yet to get him a gift, can you believe it?  I find it easier to shop for women than men.  My husband gave me some gift ideas like robern medicine cabinets from qualitybath.com since my brother-in-law needs one.  Since I was not sure, I went surfing for gift ideas and found the Switch modular pocketknife with 18 different attachments at Quirky.com.

    I am also considering this Converge, a docking station for the electronics.  Decisions, decisions.

     


  9. Filigree Headboard

    November 17, 2012 by barbara

    Saw this cute Filigree Headboard at Urban Outfitters today.  Made of heavy-duty sculpted metal, this headboard adds a vintage charm to the room.  So if you are thinking of adding a bit of decor to your bedroom, why not get this Filigree Headboard?  It is very easy to hang on the wall.    Now I am trying to decide if I should get it for the single bed in my guest room.

     


  10. Gift Idea For A Football Lover

    November 17, 2012 by barbara

    Oh I am still in my holiday mode eventhough we have been back for a couple of days.  Please bear with me, ok?   During our vacation, we also managed to celebrate the birthday of my brother-in-law who was also on holiday with us.  We had a seafood dinner on his birthday and the restaurant is situated on a cliff, overlooking the sea.  The view was just spectacular.  Located next to the restaurant is a trendy beach front bar.  Right after dinner, we proceeded to the bar for some drinks and music.  Everyone had a great time and we thoroughly enjoyed the live music.  There were 2 entertainers as well as live bands delivering the best music on their korg kronos 88 Keyboard Workstation.  My brother-in-law received a Desktop Table Football from all of us since he is an ardent fan of football.
