  1. Recycled Door Curtain

    September 30, 2009 by barbara

    If you intend to turn your house into a green home, here is something cool you can get.  A recycled curtain made from plastic flip-flops.  Artisans from Kenya created this unique door curtain of strung beads made from recycled flip-flops that were washed ashore on the Indian Ocean coast.  What a great way to turn thrash into something useful.  Check out for more information.

    September 27, 2009 by barbara

    My husband asked me to check out some floor tiles for his office but somehow, I found myself checking out the fabulous Burberry collection *grins*  Burberry is one of my favourite brands.  I love those classic plaids.


    The shoes are so chic and the bag is just lovely.


    Nice outfit


    I can’t help but notice the model wearing a few wide-legged pants in this collection.  So, is wide-legged pants back into the fashion scene?

  3. Adding Some Fun To Your Wall

    September 27, 2009 by barbara

    I remember playing those little sliding puzzles when I was a kid.  It was a fun game.  Those puzzles are now an inspiration to the Slider Wall Art from  You can display them with the letters in order on your wall or mix them around. I am sure your guests will have lots of fun with this wall art.  They are also great for housewarming gift or birthday gift.


  4. Dress O Dress

    September 25, 2009 by barbara

    I was at the mall yesterday and could not resist going into Banana Republic for a peek.  I saw the most gorgeous silk dress at the store.   It is the Heritage Silk Back-zip Dress.  So simple and elegant.   This dress would be perfect for a party which I will be attending next month.  However, I did not get it.  Well, not yet.   It is the end of the month so I am thinking of buying it once I get my paycheck next month.   I actually took the dress and lined up at the cashier for payment.  Whilst waiting in line (the cashier was fiddling with their POS systems….some error occurred, I think), I changed my mind and put the dress back.   I have been thinking about this lovely Heritage dress all day.  Can’t wait till I get my paycheck.

    If you want to minimize spills while your toddler is having his/her meals, then this Catch Bowl is just perfect.  It helps to control spills with a built-in food catcher that extends toward the child.  At the same time, it would funnel runaway food back into the bowl.  This cute bowl catcher is made from easy-to-clean soft material and has a suction cup bottom to keep the bowl in place.  Available at

  7. Reduce Barking Noise From Your Dog

    September 17, 2009 by barbara

    My neighbour has 3 dogs….3 Rottweilers.  These dogs not only has fleas which crawled over to my house, they bark a lot.  These 3 dogs would bark when someone walked close to the main gate, when the postman comes, when the owner returns or when they have visitors over.  The amount of noise is driving me nuts.  I just found something brilliant that will put an end to my misery. It is the Indoor Barking Dog Deterrent.  It emits a harmless ultrasonic tone, inaudible to humans which will make the animal silent.  The canine will associate barking with this unpleasant sound. Hence, it will stop its bad habits.  Cool huh? You can get one now from Hammacher Schlemmer.


  8. Birthday Gift Ideas

    September 14, 2009 by barbara

    My good friend’s birthday is coming up soon and I have been looking around for a gift for her.  I really like this cute Crumb Pet – Pig.  This little oink oink is actually a table vacuum that would clear away all the crumbs after meal time.  It is bag-less and very easy to use.  Just switch on the vacuum and the crumbs will sucked through a hole under the nose.  Cute eh?


    Another great gift idea is to get my friend the AquaFresh ukf7003axx Compatible Water Filter.   Hmm..decisions, decisions.  I am sure my friend would like either of these gifts :)
