New Closet Arrival: Denim Dungarees

Whilst online shopping for Father’s Day gift last month at retailmenot musiciansfriend , I saw a pop up add of denim dungarees. They’re hot right now, they were bang on trend four years ago, and shows no slowing down by next year. And I thought how handy they will be while tending to my garden or working in the farm.

Last week I received my order and clings to my curves like a second skin bahaha. Hubby isn’t so keen I use it for farm and instead suggested I visit a denim tailor.

You be the judge.

Today I only want to wear underwear and a crown. But sometimes, a lady must don her #dungarees and toil the soil.????????????

Don’t Over Think Summer

Running barefoot at the beach, dining alfresco in flip flops, a sundress and wide floppy hat to go yacht fishing, books and bikini to go along with your pina colada as you top up your tan. Summer is busy, summer is every second Instagram-worthy, so who takes care of what you wear this season? Whom to turn to make sure you look not a care in the world yet impossibly chic as you finish off that melting gelato?

Holiday Gift Ideas: Picnic Backpack

I spent one whole night of weekend online shopping. My PayPal is broke but oh boy I am over the moon for!!  I was able to send presents to families and friends in the US. Oh I should have done this sooner but lately, my clients are opting to pay directly via bank transfer leaving my PayPal hungry for a long, long time. Good thing, my new client had PayPal option and promptly paid all their dues. Thank you so much! It seems the universe is conspiring for us to do something good in return.

So I am to buy four presents. First on the list is first on my list Jazz Saxaphone for a family friend’s musician daughter. Then this picnic backpack perfect for campers and hikers. The canvas pack is loaded up with melamine plates, goblets, flatware and napkins for four, plus a bread knife, wooden cutting board, salt and pepper shakers and a sommelier’s corkscrew. It even has a detachable wine cooler and sable-gray felt blanket!

Isn’t it perfect? I’d love to buy one for our own personal use in the future.
