  1. 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 BellissimoFavors.com.  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.

    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.

    Ain’t this little toolbox cute?  It is great to clear some clutter in the baby room.  The caddy holds up to a dozen diapers, creams, ointments, powder and other necessity items.  This Skip*Hop toolbox from TheFunkyMonkeyBaby.com has built-in handle which enables it to be moved from bedroom to bathroom or to any other room at home easily.  It also has 2 side pockets which are removable as well as two drawers that can be acessible from either side. I wonder if they have similar toolbox for adults.  Would be great to have a bright and colourful toolbox to keep all the necessary tools and bearings.

  10. Storing Your Cellphone In Style

    February 24, 2009 by barbara

    I just came across something really cute and funky to store our cell phone.  It is called Eva Cellphone Holder and looks just like the popular Crocs shoes :)   They are made from the same material as the popular shoes and can hold all types of cell phones, MP3 players and even micro sd card.

    The case can be carried in a variety of styles as they come with uniquely designed adjustable and removable clips and straps. The holders are so colourful and I believe it will be a hit among teenagers and young adults.  You can even personalize it with some cute Jibbitz.  The Eva Cellphone holders make great gifts so do check them out if you know of a birthday coming up.
