  1. Hoop Earrings For Short Bob Hair

    January 30, 2014 by barbara

    Am a bit crazy over loop earrings now. My hair is shoulder length and it’s curly since I permed it about 2 weeks ago. So I thought loop earrings may look nice on me. I have been checking out the accessories shop for some loop earring to add to my collection. I stumbled upon these Heart Cluster Hoop earrings at Kris Nation yesterday. They are too cute and I wouldn’t mind wearing them.


  2. Grammy Awards 2014

    January 29, 2014 by barbara

    Did anyone watch the Grammy Awards a few days ago?  If yes, then which one was your favourite performance?  Did you favourite singer win the Grammy?  I love the performance by Pharrell, Stevie Wonder and Daft Punk in their rendition of Get Lucky.  This retro dance-flavored music is very catchy and I really enjoyed it.  The jamming session with the music legends, the retro recording booth complete with neon lights and possibly behringer amps as well as electronic sounds from the white robots really brought the house down.

  3. BoomBox Lunch Box

    January 29, 2014 by barbara

    This Aquarius Boombox Lunch Box is pretty darn cute. It reminds me of the 80’s when we used to blast the boombox listening to Michael Jackson and Madonna. It is so old-school and retro. This thin lunch box has nice graphics too.   I wonder if the kid would like to have this to bring her lunch to school.  I sure won’t mind one myself.   Available at Wayfair.com.

     


  4. A T-shirt That Prevents Slouching

    January 27, 2014 by barbara

    One of the things that my parents always remind us when we were kids is to sit up straight. Always.  Don’t slouch. Do you get that a lot?   If you still slouch, well you can get an organic t-shirt from Upcouture that is designed to improve posture.  This French label uses organic cotton and a patented set of elastic bands to adjust the shoulders and create a beautiful profile.   So if you want to stand tall and proud, try one on today.

     

     


  5. Bamboo Pendant Lights

    January 16, 2014 by barbara

    I love everything that is made out of bamboo or sea grass. That is one of the reasons why I have so many baskets in all shapes and sizes at home. I was blog-hopping just now and came upon these beautiful bamboo pendant light from bodieandfou. I fell in love right away.

    Inspired by the Thai fish traps, these beautiful lamps are great for bringing nature indoors.


  6. Tutus For Girls

    January 12, 2014 by barbara

    Isn’t this the most beautiful tutu you have ever seen?  I love to see little girls in tutus. I spotted this at bodieandfou.  Made from layer upon layer of chiffon frill and finished with a satin ribbon,  this tutu is just perfect for little girls.  Can be worn to parties or dressing up.   It has an elastic waist too.  I want to know if they have this in adult size as well because I would surely love to own one.

    I have just discovered this online store called LeifShop.com. I just love their stuff.  Have you checked them out before?  I just saw a few things that I simply adore.  As Chinese New Year is fast approaching, there are some really nice decors for the home which I should get to spruce things up.   I like this Lidded Mini Basket below which is great for keeping knick-knacks like keys or different types of hinges in the garage.

    I also like this Plus Print Lucite Tray and the Neon Glass Wall Clock.


  8. Choosing Necklaces For Necklines

    January 7, 2014 by barbara

    Recently I bought at black top from Mango and it has a plunging V-neck.  The top is very simple so I want to wear a necklace to dress it up.  However, I cannot seem to find the right necklace for this kind of neckline.  A statement necklace won’t look nice with it.  So I went on the internet and found this useful tip on Pinterest.

    So now I know what type of necklace I should be wearing for different necklines.
