  1. Sweater Dress From Banana Republic

    March 11, 2009 by barbara

    One of my favourite stores is Banana Republic.  I was just browsing their website earlier and couldn’t take my eyes off this Shiny Pleated Sweater Dress from their Spring collection.  I love the shade of this dress (Moroccan Camel) and also the vertical stripes on it.  This viscose sweater dress has a slimming effect and is great for both work and a night out.  Guess I won’t need to take the best weight loss pills in town in order to look slim in this lovely number.


  2. A Rocking Horse Is Better Than A Pet

    March 10, 2009 by barbara

    My 4-year old has been talking to me about getting a puppy for our home.  Yeah, she wants to have a pet ever since she saw my cousin’s little poodle during the recent Chinese New Year gathering.  I definitely do not think it is a good idea to get a puppy now as she still does not know how to take care of the animal.  It is not easy having a pet and it requires a lot of responsibility.  Guess she would have to wait till she is a little older.  In the meantime, I think this beautiful plush rocking horse could change her mind regarding a pet now.  It is a Rock and Trot Rocking Horse from Melissa & Doug and is finished in premium plush fabric.  It has a safe, sturdy hardwood base and a comfortably soft saddle.  This pony holds up to 150 pounds and is almost as good as a real horse.  However, you do not need to get any horse supplies for it so it is much easier to take care than a dog :)  I am sure my toddler will be thrilled to have this Rocking Horse.

  5. Planning To Go Anywhere During The School Holidays?

    March 5, 2009 by barbara

    The first quarter of the year is almost ending already.  In just one more week, school holidays will begin.  The children will get one week off this time.  Since we have not been on a holiday ever since I had my toddler (she’ll be turning 4 in a few months’ time),  I think this school holiday period would be a good opportunity for us to take a break.  My hubs prefer somewhere by the sea whereas I prefer a place with lots of attractions and shopping such as Pigeon Forge. I just discovered that there are many nice Pigeon Forge Tennessee hotels at reasonable rates.  I am going to tell hubs to check out the hotels online.  Hopefully he agrees to go on a fun-filled holiday in Pigeon Forge.  We could always go to the beach later :)

  6. Sushi Clock

    March 5, 2009 by barbara

    Are you a sushi lover?  If yes, then I am sure you are going to love this sushi clock from It is a popular clock in many Japanese restaurants throughout Japan.  Not only do they tell the time, they also represent the scrumptious fare diners will find on the menu inside the restaurant.  Each hour is represented by a different sushi item.  You will see Unagi (fresh water eel), Awabi (abalone), Ebi (shrimp), Tako (octopus), Saba (mackerel), Ikura (salmon roe), Anago (conger eel), Tamago (egg), Akagai (ark shell), Ika (squid), Maguro (tuna), and Kappa Maki & Tekka Maki (cucumber & tuna roll).  The sushi clock is the actual size of a lacquer sushi tray.

  8. Stylish Name Card Holders

    March 2, 2009 by barbara

    A friend of mine is planning to throw a housewarming party at her new house.  I have been to her house recently and it is very tastefully decorated.  She did not acquire the services of an interior decorator.  In fact, she went around the town, hopping from one store to another to check out everything for her house.  I have been looking around for a housewarming gift and saw these stylish name card holders from  These place card holders features a tiny replica resin purse base with a gold wire extending from its top leading to a coiled place card holder.  They are just perfect for my friend as she is a bag lover.  Also, she loves to entertain so I am sure she will be having many guests to her home in the future.  These super chic place card holders will certainly make great conversation piece.

    They come in multiple colors and detailed styles including apple green, fuchsia, melon with green accent and turquoise.  My friend is a great cook and I am so looking forward to her housewarming party :) In the meantime, I better get some weight loss pills too as I know I will be eating non-stop at the party.

  9. Paper Bag Vase

    March 2, 2009 by barbara

    No I am not storing my flowers in paper bags. In fact, they are ceramic vases.  Sure fooled me when I first saw it.  These funky and fun vases from Uncommon Goods are designed to look like real paper bags but they are actually ceramic.  They are handmade and are perfect for storing fresh cut flowers.  It is definitely going to be a great conversation starter.  By the way, these unique paper bag vase were featured in O, The Oprah Magazine.

  10. A Must-Have In Every Woman’s Wardrobe

    March 1, 2009 by barbara

    I was browsing the internet earlier today and fell in love with this timeless wrap dress from Banana Republic. A wrap dress is such a flattering piece of clothing and complements all figures.  This classic dress does not go out of style and never fail to impress.  This long-sleeve faux wrap dress is made of 95% rayon and 5% spandex.  It is available in matte navy or silky coal. A steal at $98.  I have just placed my order online and can’t wait for it to arrive.  In the meantime, I better start working out on my elliptical if I want to look good in my long-sleeve faux wrap dress.
