Shopping Fix

So my husband and I braved the Singapore crowd this Sunday out in the mall. We went to pick up a book he reserved at Kinokuniya in Takashimaya, after which we moved on to Vivocity to watch our already booked movie, Kung Fu Panda (I thought the funniest part of the movie was the acupuncture scene!). After the movie, I thought I could manage to be one with the masses and indulge in the GSS (Great Singapore Sale). After seeing the sea of people, I knew I couldn't do it. I really couldn't see myself waiting for an hour just to try on a pair of pants even if it was 70% off. I didn't want to queue for seats at a restaurant. We then decided to just enjoy the rest of the Sunday at home. We still had left over Kahlua Pork and Potato Salad from dinner last night anyway (recipes of that another time!). So instead of being out there satisfying my shopping fix, I decided to do it in the comfort of my own home... through Etsy.

In fact, a few days ago, I started some shopping. I didn't buy anything big. I just bought some accessories to brighten up my usual work day look of a t-shirt or knit top, jeans, and whatever shoes and bag I may be in the mood to wear. I am really glad that my day job doesn't require me to wear a suit!

One purchase was from Etsy friend, Kieu Le. I was looking for a pendant, something teal or blue- then I saw this. It was really funny because I didn't care that she was selling it as a dog charm. Haha. It was just too cute, I knew I had to get it. It would probably look pretty to group with other pendants!

Last December, I bought her Dad's CD called Memories to accompany me on my road trip to Kuala Lumpur from Singapore. For any classical music enthusiast, or even a lover of all kinds of music, this CD is a must buy. Mr. Le Van Khoa's music made the road trip feel like I was in a period, epic film! It was a delight to the ears and especially my emotions!

Anyway... I think a day after I bought the dog charm... er pendant... I was still thinking of pendants. I surfed Etsy and saw hundreds of scrabble tile pendants. I wanted them all! Then I saw a PDF file being sold on how to make one! I wonder if I will actually make one for myself but hey, I bought it anyway. Who knows, I may make a few to sell here on Etsy!

I bought it from A Pink Piggy for $7! And I got it in a few minutes too! I am hoping to try making this pendant next week...

The next day, still in accessory mode, I found this:

Isn't it so cute? This matches the theme of my store and my blog perfectly! It even matches the bikinis! I knew I had to have it for myself. Do check out relishdress' store. All her accessories are just so adorable!

It's almost midnight and I am still surfing etsy. I am still looking at the scrabble tile pendants. And all these shopping totes look so inviting. Help!! I know my shopping fix hasn't been satiated.

The Reserved Towel

How fun is this? Keep unwanted people away from your tanning spot with this straight-to-the-point towel. I was surfing the net when I stumbled upon this website and discovered this towel.

Don't lose your precious spot on the beach or by the pool to a queue-jumping Gerry this summer. Mark your territory with the new RESERVED towel.

Normally, people have all the sunbed space sewn up by Christmas. This year, you can fight them on the beaches with your brand new weapon. Make sure they know you're not giving your spot up for anyone! The RESERVED towel makes your point loud and clear with no messing about.

In a crowded resort, the RESERVED towel makes the ultimate ‘hands off' statement. Let that beach babe know that your sunbed's not available, unless she's willing to share!

The RESERVED towel is great fun, can help you pull, and will annoy the hell out of the others vying for a place next to the pool. What more could you ask for from a towel?


* Measures 153 x 80cm.
* 100% cotton

Not exactly the most fashionable beach accessory, but hey, at least you're protecting your territory!
