White is In!

I am so into white this year! From the white sofa and the white guest-room I have been dreaming of to the exquisite white jewellery box I saw at the Curve, all the goodies I anticipate buying seem to be in the color white. When I saw this lovely jewellery box on display at a store in The Curve, I fell in love with it immediately. It was a tad pricey so I was reluctant to purchase it without sleeping on it first. A few days later B surprised me with it as my monthly anniversary gift! How great is that? Now I have a new jewellery box, which I totally love! It will replace my old tiny childish-looking one very nicely, thanks sweetie!


My problem now is finding the right place to put this lovely jewellery box. My dressing table is already packed, with my perfume collection taking up a huge part of the table. The lamp is taking up space too. I have been meaning to replace it with a new one. I read somewhere that dressing table needs to be horizontally lit from both sides to avoid seeing shadows across your face and mine doesn't seem to be doing that.


I found several great options at Farrey’s, which offers you an extensive range of lamps including table lamps, floor lamps, reading lamps and piano lamps in every imaginable style. All lamps are offered at the lowest prices and the easy-to-use site made it extremely convenient for me to shop by lamp brand, application or style. I love this Contemporary Indoor Table Lamp, which comes in two beautiful shades. The white one will look great on my dressing table!


Aside from the usual errands, attending a wedding, a thanksgiving dinner at my parents’ and some lamp shopping, that was my weekend. How was yours?

Hello Hazel! Nice right this jewellery box? It also comes in black and maroon! ;)

I can't remember the name of the shop, but it's right next to the middle escalator on the 1st floor. The shop sells bags, wallets etc... You can't miss it, I think it's the only one of its kind there. Have fun shopping!

Hi Marzie, I am back from KL! Looks like you have a busy weekend!

Happy to hear tht u got a big & more spacious jewellery box tht too of u'r most favourite colour.
happy to see this dear......
u'r dressing table looks too very compact & small....
u need some compartments to keep u'r things......& also abt the lighting.... it is better tht the lighting is at the top & a small cfl or tube will be the best solution as the colour will be floracent & u will have better idea as to wht exactly u r face will look in regular light....
tht shaded lamp is not tht bright & may not be tht good idea to use when u'r putting on make up....
also the table lamp below r wonderful......the white one will look really good .....if u r putting a cfl tube along with tht.....
congrats for u'r new jewellery box...
it looks really superb.....
i wish to get one such big...... once i get my gal!.....

Regards & Luv,

Yeah I hope the two of you have a wonderful blast this New Year. By the way, my team (our team) Arsenal just got bumped down to second place for the first time this season. The match was played this early morn. They are now one point behind ManUtd :-( Dampens my Xmas spirit a bit...

Mariuca December 27, 2007 5:03 PM

Oh yeah! B just gave me a recap of the entire thing this afternoon! It's okay, don't let it dampen ur Christmas spirit, there's still hope for them to win the next one! And the next and the next lolz....
