Online Purchase Experience

Hi all,

I would like to share with you my online shopping experience with you in this post. Recently I have made a purchase through StrawberryNET and it's a good experience. I have made my purchases on 2th Dec 2011 and received it on 9th Dec 2011 which is 7 days after the purchase. This is quite fast I would say and furthermore the shipping charge is free if you are purchasing skincare and makeup products along with other items. The goods are all beautifully wrapped with wrapping paper and a card, the empty spaces are surrounded by loose fill packaging materials to avoid the goods bump against each other. The price of the products are quite cheap during the festive season sales so it's a good bargain... You can also request them to wrap the products and add a give message if you intend to give it to others at zero cost. Not only that, for first time customer, you get free products and you will also get additional discounts for each of the items that you have purchased. And the best part is if you come back for second time onwards, you'll get loyalty discount. Overall, i'm quite satisfied with their service. What are you waiting for ??? Let grab the products while the sales is on!!!

Disclaimer, I'm reviewing of my own accord with my 100% honesty

Birthday Card - Recycle Material

Hi all,

I'm so excited to share with you this DIY birthday card and gift tag to my colleague. We've bought her a vintage necklace (comes with a pendant) and a cute vintage photo charm bracelet from Kaleidoscope. I've decided to made her a birthday card and I thought it would be nice if the card is in brown colour to match the gifts. Coincidentally I kept some used recycle paper bags (for other DIY project), downloaded free printable flowers template from Paper+Craftfree printable gift tag from How About Orange and the empty A4 boxes from my office would be of help in this project too. Finally, we've inserted the gifts, gift tags and the birthday card into a brown envelope to complete the look. Thanks to my colleagues (Jessy and Sha) who helps to cut out the flowers template and preparing the gift tag as we are running short of time. We are all pleased that the birthday girl likes the gift.

Tools and materials:-
Standard size puncher & heavy duty puncher (optional)
Paper guillotine
Double sided tape
Recycle A4 papers (pink - different shades, white, black)
A4 paper box

How To:
1. Cut out two cards size (your own preference) out of the A4 paper box to form the cards. Trim of the excess or cut a straight line by using paper guillotine or scissors.

- Optional: Draw a stand for the cake

Cut out the downloaded flower template from Paper+Craft one by one and stack against each other starting from the second largest flower to the smallest (leave aside the biggest flower) with the double sided tape for a 3D pop out effect on the front page. Stick a punch out (or draw) circle on top of the flower.

November Babies

It's my birthday month again!!! Along the years, I've met more and more people who born on November. During my primary school days, I've always wishes that I were to born in earlier months as holidays normally falls on November to December. I've only got to celebrate my birthday with family members, birthday song singing session and cake cutting without friends were not fun.

We've always heard from the elderly people told us that the more we grew up the less we celebrate our birthday. Now I've realized and agreed with that statement, as we grew older we tend to forget and expect less for our birthday. Nonetheless, we will still celebrate our parents birthday and it's a way to show them our love, care and thankfulness to them.

I've celebrated a few birthdays with my colleagues and made a DIY birthday card and gift tag for a colleague to present it to her with her birthday gift. I will share it in the next post....

Hi all,

I've always wonder why do people so in love with blogging - telling what they like or dislike, their daily routines and etc. to the whole world. Due to some event (I've forgotten), I've tried to search around for some companies and products information, but I can't find their websites. I managed to get the info from the blogger's review and their suggestion. Since then, I will always check out the bloggers website for their review on products, restaurants, hotels and etc. They really help to save our time by providing all the information that we need (kudos to all bloggers)!!! 

After such a long time, I have decided to open an account in blog spot and start blogging. I've wanted to start blogging since last year but I'm just too lazy and drag until today. My name is Celine, I enjoy travelling and see the outside world where I can learn more from other people. I love things that are done beautifully and I would like to share my thoughts with you guys on what I've seen, tried and explore. So keep looking out for my updates!!!
