  1. Marimekko Wishlist

    March 19, 2013 by barbara

    Currently I am a little obsessed with Marimekko’s design. It all started when a friend brought back many Marimekko plates, placemats and trays from her travel overseas recently. She has been posting them in Instagram and that got me hooked. So I went online and found a few items which I have put in my wishlist.

    March 11, 2013 by barbara

    Last night was a pretty busy night for me. A friend of mine was asking me if I know where she can do a background check on her new employees. Luckily I managed to find back ground check service here at easy back ground for her.  Right after that, I also surfed the internet for some kids’ party ideas.  It is for my cousin’s 5 year old son’s birthday party and she is looking for some ideas.  I stumbled upon   these eco-friendly stickers from   These stickers can be used to stick on milk cartons, shoe boxes, paper towel tubes or egg cartons.  With these stickers, you can turn these items into animals or things and let the kids’ imagination run wild.

    Time to turn old boxes into new toys.  All you need to do is peel, stick and play.  This is one of my favourites.  Shoebox turned into a refrigerator.

    These Jpeg’s hooks from Thabto are pretty versatile.  You can hang your coats,keys, bags, hats as well as pinning your photos or grocery lisst on the wall.    You can even store your letter there.   Each hook contains super strong magnets which means you can also stick them to the fridge.  There are 3 hooks in a pack.  I think I should get them for my foyer.

    So I attended my friend’s baby shower recently.  My friend and her hubby are expecting their first baby.  It was a fun baby shower attended by close friends.  She decorated her home with the help of her hubby and everyone was amazed at the beautiful decor.  Her hubby who is a singer even set up a little stage complete with a snowball mic and sang a few songs.  My friend was wearing this funny t-shirt that day.

    Funny right?  She got it from

    Been looking around for a really nice and roomy cosmetic bag since I threw out the one I had. While the bag was still in good condition, the zipper was broken. I chanced upon this Hold Me Bag from and I think this is just perfect.  It is fashioned after a vintage school girl’s book bag and features a wrap-around self-tie.  The bag exterior is crafted using a high-performance vegan fabric and has 15 sleeves to hold all kinds of brushes, etc.   Now I can travel in style with this Hold Me Bag.



  7. Organizing The Home

    February 25, 2013 by barbara

    I am in the mood for some re-organizing around the home. There is too much clutter at the moment. I would really like for my home to have a table or cupboard at the entryway. At least we can put our keys, mobile phones or the kid’s schoolbags and more neatly.  While browsing the internet for some ideas, I chanced upon this cute Double Child lockers which comes with a seat.  I think my daughter would like this and I can also place a small table at the entryway to store our knick-knacks.

  8. Funny Birthday Candles

    Oh these candles made me burst out laughing. I saw them on just now. They are just perfect when there is not enough room on the cake.  Don’t Ask Candles is a hilarious alternative to regular traditional ones.  A great way to add some humour at the next birthday party.   Hmm…I think I should get some now for my next birthday.  Not that there isn’t anymore room on my cake, just in case I want to get a smaller cake *wink*

  10. Sleepy Lamp

    February 14, 2013 by barbara

    Hey peeps. I thought you may want to take a look at this Sleepy lamp by Boaz Saragossi. This unique Sleepy lamp falls asleep on its own. Sleepy gradually lowers its head until it reaches the base, presses the button and shuts down the lights. It is great for those who love to spend an hour or so to read before bedtime. That way, you can fall asleep without worrying about forgetting to switch off the bedside lamp. Pretty cool ain’t it?  Check out this link for more cool ready made design items.
