My cousin who is staying in Staten Island, NY recently came back for a one-month vacation with her parents and her 2 children. Her husband could not make it as he was unable to take one month off. It was a really nice to see her and her family again after so many years. I also found out that my cousin is a huge fan of Gucci. She was using a Gucci messenger bag, Gucci travel duffel bag and lots of Gucci accessories such as sunglasses and belts. I was really blown-away to see her designer collection. Wish I could have that many designer stuff.
I could not help admiring the large Gucci Hobo bag she was also using. It has the signature ebony GG Monogram just like the bag shown below but in dark brown fabric. Simply gorgeous!
She told me that she bought the bag at the Gucci outlet in Upstate New York for a steal. She only paid US$300 (including tax). What a good buy! She went to the outlet mall a week before she came back and bought many clothings and shoes. It is so wonderful to live in the States where there are so many outlet malls. My cousin also bought a few pairs of north face walking shoes for her husband and her parents. Those shoes are stylish and very comfortable. After listening to my cousin’s description of the shoes, my mom asked her to get a pair for her the next time she goes to the outlet mall. As for me, I asked her to keep a lookout for the Gucci Hobo bag. Once she has bought the walking shoe and the bag, she would mail them back to us. I just cannot wait to hear the good news from her.

I love this unique beanbag featuring Marimekko Unikko Prints. It is so colourful and definitely can brighten up any dull room. This versatile beanbag allows you to express your fun sense of style. It is made of nylon fabric and PVC coating which make it water resistant and stain resistant. You can easily clean it with lukewarm water and soap. I can just imagine myself sitting down on this beanbag, reading a book or weight loss supplement reviews or even lay back with a cool glass of frappucino. Very inviting….don’t you think?

I just realized that my closet is full of long sleeve tops. Eventhough some of them are light cotton, the hot weather these days is making it impossible to wear them. I should get more short-sleeve tops like the ones shown below.
short cuffed T with finely ribbed u-neckline
These tops from Gap are versatile and very comfortable. They are just perfect for the hot weather and I know I can just wear them everyday with a pair of jeans or capri. I have never worn a sleeveless top before because I have flabby arms. I would love to be able to wear a ruffled-front tank top like the one shown below but I know I look horrible in it. If I can get myself some of the best weight loss pill and lose those flabby arms, then I may just get myself a sleeveless top.

There are a couple of things I need to do today. I have to find a housewarming gift for a party this weekend, look for some credit report services for friend and shop for a few casual shirts to go with my shorts. I found a few shirts that I like from JCrew. Check out this three-quarter sleeve stretch shirt. It is made of lightweight cotton and is slim-fitting.
Another one that I like is this classic washed chambray shirt. It has a flattering slim fit and roll-up sleeves. Both the shirts look good when paired with shorts or pedal pushers.
Nice huh? Now that I have found the shirts I want, I better start doing the other 2 tasks.

The beach season is just around the corner. If you are heading to the beach very soon, you may want to check out Louis Vuitton 2009 Beach Wear collection entitled Summer Spirit. I love the clothes, the shoes and the bags.
