Merry Xmas1 Have a very Dressy Merry Christmas everyone!

Anyone wearing a polka red dot dress tied with a red grosgrain ribbon for X’mas? Well, I’m not but I found this Origami folded dress version in card version from Maranda, an online store that makes one-of-a-kind handmade paper creations. I thought it’s such a cutie and a nice way to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas here!

Before I go, just wanted to share a modified X’mas joke with you.

New Iris Collection from Crabtree & Evelyn

Crabtree & Evelyn as a brand certainly doesn’t need much introduction but I wonder how many people are like me and would sometimes call it Evelyn & Crabtree by mistake?

Do you own one of these mini USB fans? I love them and I think whoever introduced them is ingenious because they don’t need to be plugged to a power socket. Instead, they’re powered by the USB port of your computer, laptops or even PS3 game machines. I bought two of these from Home-Fix a couple of months ago and I have one sitting permanently on my desk, keeping me cool while I’m working on the computer. Then the other day, I was painting my nails and I realized that these mini fans can help to dry the nails! Why didn’t I think of that earlier?

How I recovered money from a fraudulent order

online shopping payment How I recovered money from a fraudulent order

I thought I was recently fleeced for the purchase of a beauty tool I made online. No goods arrived after nearly a month and no updates were given about the status of the shipping either. After I wrote to the store, they claimed that they did not receive my money. Good thing was that I paid via PayPal and I remember they have a resolution centre to faciliate purchase disputes. Someone I know also confirmed that she had successfully made various claims through their resolution centre and so I went ahead to make my claim. Well, three weeks after I filed my claim, the money is back in my account.
