Eye lashes and crystal eyeliner for cars? Okay I have to admit these are really, really, unnecessary but so much fun that I couldn’t resist getting them. I love my little car, I haven’t yet reached the stage where I have invested in personalizing it (you know, like getting expensive alloy wheels, hand-painted artwork, dangling rear view mirror ornaments or dashboard covers) but secretly I have pet names for it and sometimes I “spoil” it with little presents like vanilla scented car freshener(!).
I may have watched the “cars” animated movie too many times, but after I park my car and hear the “beep-beep” of the lock I look at its front with the two headlights and the shape of the grill and it always seems to be smiling at me. This is why I like this coy car craze: The Car Lash – fun fake eyelashes that are designed to fit on most cars. Continue reading
One of the most frustrating things I find about flying is the time I spend at the baggage carrousel trying to identify my suitcase in time to grab it as it rolls past me. Like most people, I too have devised different ways to personalize my luggage: tying colored ribbons to the handle, writing my initials in tape on the front etc… this usually works, but still I sometimes find myself struggling to manhandle an oversized suitcase only to discover it isn’t mine.
The creative minds at TheCheeky.com have come up with a solution to this problem – The Suitcase Sticker – and before going on my last trip I decided to check them out. Continue reading
1 car key, 2 house keys, 2 keys to the office, 1 key for the mailbox , 1 key to my parent’s apartment and the spare key for my son’s bike – everyday I carry around 8 keys. I admit this is cumbersome and noisy and every time I reach a door it takes me a while to find the right key.
As with most things, I got used to this situation until I found a simple solution. Realizing that I most probably wasn’t the only person lugging a bulky keychain I decided to share my knowledge and tell you about the Keyport. Continue reading
