  1. 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.

    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*

    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.

    While the spouse was busy looking for racks and stands for the garage,  I was surfing the internet for some quirky birthday gift for my girlfriend.   That is when I stumbled upon Queuger at IPPINKA.   I am still having a hard time trying to pronounce this word.  Queuger is a flexible elastomer wire with aluminum core.    You can bend or twist it for a wide range of applications.  So whether you want it to secure things, hold a book open or carry your groceries, just get the Queuger.  The possibilities is endless.   It can hold up to 5 kgs.

    Since I have a stash of necklaces, bracelets and earrings in my collection, I am running out of space on how to store them. Right now they are in my covered basket and it is not a pretty good idea as I find it hard to look for them when I want to wear them. I started looking around and came across a few jewelry organizers which I like.

  10. Accessorizing With Chunky Necklace

    January 20, 2013 by barbara

    Just the other day while we were at the mall, my spouse went to check out the karaoke store and spent about an hour there.  I did not follow him but instead I hopped over to my favourite accessories shop. I am so into chunky necklaces right now.  Chunky accessories can add a touch of colour or glam up an outfit in a jiffy.  They look great on its own or when layered with other necklaces.  I like the look of a chunky necklace worn over a button down shirt and denim.  It is so simple and classy.


    Time to go bold.
