A Great Bag For Short Trips

My friend, an insurance agent whom I bought my term life insurance from visited me a couple of days ago to show us some of her holiday photos.  She and her husband went to Singapore recently to visit the newly opened Universal Studios.  They were there for about a week and thoroughly enjoyed their trip.  My friend did a lot of shopping there too.  She told me that she did not take a lot of clothes with her because she wanted to shop in Singapore.   My friend even recommended that I buy the Reisentel Expandable Travel Bag from TouchofEurope.net.   The Reisentel bag is cute and functional.  It is an ideal bag for short trips.  You can carry the bag or strap it on the shoulder.   It is available in plain black, plain red or floral as shown in the picture below.  I think I am going to buy it since we often travel to local destinations.

Digital Scale For Weighing Luggage Bags

While looking for a replacement Hinkley lighting, I stumbled upon this cool travel accessory called Weigh To Go.   This multi-functional accessory is compact and features a digital scale, identification tag and a built-in lock to prevent theft.  How cool huh?  I know this is something which my in-laws from Toronto should get because each time they come back for a vacation, they will buy so many things to take home.  Then they will be looking all over the place for a weighing scale to weigh their luggage bags.  With the Weigh To Go, they do not have to worry about overweight luggage.  The Weigh To Go is available at Quirky.com

what to bring to a beach vacation

While the hubs was busy looking for employment screening program, I was checking out some fabulous stuff on some of my favorite online sites.  We plan to go away for a short break at the beach in a couple of weeks time.  Well, I reckon that some new new clothes and shoes would be nice for the getaway.   Below are some of the things which I heart.

Handmade Swedish Clogs from Free People

Ok, I know the clogs are not exactly appropriate for the beach but I just love its design and colour.  They do look well when paired with shorts, no?

Do you know what I am longing for right now?  Well other than spending Christmas in Disney World and enjoying those fabulous florida vacations, I would love to get my hands on a few pairs of shoes from Witchery.com.au.   Yes, I love shoes and just can’t get enough of them.  Besides shoes, I also found some lovely accessories at Witchery.  Should I just get all of them?

Pamper Yourself With Plush Slippers

Check out these cute Heated Herbal Polar Bear Slippers. They are so soft and plush.  This heated herbal slippers are microwaveable to keep your feet rejuvenated.   It also has a nice herbal fragrant smell.  Its lavender scent is soothing and relaxing.  The slippers have a durable rubber sole.  They remind me of the lovely slippers provided by one of the luxury Las Vegas hotels which my friend and her hubby stayed in.  My friend was so taken by the slippers that she took a photograph of it to show everyone 🙂

Holiday By The Beach

In a few days’ time, me and my family will be going away for a couple of days.  This is our first vacation in many years.  We will be heading to an island and spending some time at a beach resort.  There is nothing like relaxing on the beach, listening to the waves.  I told my husband that I don’t think I would want to leave the resort and venture out for sightseeing around the island.  It is better to relax at the beach resort.  Maybe for our next vacation, we would get an rv and drive up north.  That would be very enjoyable too.

Funky Mini Fridge

Check out these funky mini fridges.  What a cool way to keep your cold drinks or your foods hot close at hand.  All you have to do is plug it in.  Great for brightening up your office or bedroom too.  You can even keep this fridge in the car and plug it to the cigarette lighter.  This mini cutie fridge can hold up to 6 cans of sodas.  It also comes with a fold-down handle at the top for easy carrying.  These unique fridges are designed in France by Crea Crea.

Time For Some Sun, Sea And Sand

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 😉

Planning To Go Anywhere During The School Holidays?

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 🙂
