Ah, wat a clever idea. I wouldn't go for pink though.

The last Monday of the year had come and gone, and come this New Year, I'd love some lounge time in rayavadee.

Magazine table stand.

I seriously regret selling stacks and stacks of my old copies of Her World to the karang-guni (rag & bone) man.

For your viewing pleasure.

Plain boxes, hooks and storage compartments? *YAWN*

Magical xmas elsewhere.

I am so disappointed with this year's Xmas Orchard light-up. It just looks extremely tacky, and um ... cheap!
Wish I was a parisien. *inhale*

Traditional Wishes.

I'm so glad Christmas cards are still being sent out. Who cares for e-cards anyway, they go straight into the thrash bin if any of them land in my inbox. Not exactly a conservative, this is one tradition I would certainly keep.

PS. The stamps are so lovely. They certainly remind us what Christmas is ALL about.

Brilliant idea with unconventional materials!

I'm just too excited over this, cos I have SO many magazines. {via coveiter}

Make My Day.

I slept feeling pissed off, woke up feeling the same way and the meeting that was just over, didn't help. I decided to make myself feel better by looking for pretty pictures and of course, style me pretty didn't disappoint. I love the red and purple jewel combo. Check out the tall arrangement with red and purple orchids! Looks like a million dollars, perfect for the budget conscious.

Deck the Halls.

It all started with an attempt to shop for Xmas decorations last evening. There are just SO many blink blink balls and deco to choose from. I could do with some innovative deco ideas.

If you want to save some dough on fir. Looks cool against a black wall.

"Behind every great man ... is a woman rolling her eyes." Part II

On a more intellectual note, Michelle Obama graduated from Priceton University and a graduate of Harvard Law School. She's been described as her husband's rock. Certainly not a woman to be trifled with.
