    April 18, 2009 by barbara

    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.

    Seeing all these beautiful luxurious beachwear makes me want to go for a vacation. I am so ready for a break. Though I won’t be wearing any LV swimsuit, cotton shorts, poplin tunic, open-toed pumps or  monogram tote at the beach, it has definitely given me the travel spirit. I better start checking out some beach vacation rentals now ;)

    What a better way to add some colours to your desk than this pretty tulip USB hub in a window box.  There is a USB high-speed port in each cheerful tulip. I simply love the bright red colour of these tulips.  These gadgets are fun and functional. They are compatible with most USB plugs for both Mac and Windows systems.  I am definitely going to get these tulips for my work desk.  I wonder if they have a cute KVM switch as my husband is looking for it.

  5. Denim Style For Spring/Summer 2009

    April 9, 2009 by barbara

    Jeans are a staple piece that every woman should have in her wardrobe.  It is the most versatile item that one can buy.  Every woman needs at least one pair that would make her feel sexy and sophisticated.  One of the key trend this spring/summer is a pair of skinny jeans and fashionistas all over are talking about it. While shopping around, I found this pair of fantastic MatchstickJeans from JCrew.  It is really trendy and perfect when paired with flats, open-toe heels or tucked into boots.  What I like about this skinny jean is that it slims through the hip and thigh and has a straight narrow legs.  If you want to look chic during the hot weather, get a pair of Matchstick Jeans today.  As for me, I would need to pop some diet pills before I could wear one.  Skinny jeans are not exactly figure-flattering for those who have a curvy figure.  Perhaps a high-waisted skinny jeans would look good on me.

  7. Piece Of Cake

    April 1, 2009 by barbara

    Found this smart kitchen gadget at Charles & Marie which I believe every home should have.  A cake cutter!  I find it really hard to cut up a cake properly and serve it to my guests most of the time.  Therefore, this brilliant Piece of Cake cutter is godsend.  It looks like a tong with a triangle on top and it works as a cake cutter and lifter.  All you have to do is to slide the cutter down on the cake and then squeeze the tongs slightly.  Voila, you can transfer the perfect piece of cake into the plate.  No fuss at all.  Available in funky Orange, White and Yellow.

  10. Ruffles Shower Curtain

    March 25, 2009 by barbara

    I spotted this lovely Ruffles Shower Curtain at Target a while ago and I am quite smitten by it.  It is very unique and beautiful.  The top is bordered with multiple rows of ruffles and the curtain is 100% polyster.  Looks like something you would find at those boutique hotels, eh?  Great for those who would like to add a shabby chic touch or delicate touch to their vintage bathroom.   I am going to place my order soon.  If you like it too, swing by Target.
