ONE.Shinzi Katoh’s sad little bear mug is so sadly cute. TWO.these swoop bags are just what i need to organize all of milo’s toys. THREE.i am a sucker for scalloped pattern + for Chloé sunglasses. FOUR.i know i posted this Lauren Moffatt dress but i just had to since i want it & its a perfect dress for those july 4th bbq’s social events. FIVE.i love Hello Kitty & i wouldn’t mind having this dock speaker on my desk or even in the bathroom when i am doing my toothbrusing facewashing. SIX.cupcake mixer. SEVEN.i didn’t know i always wanted a raccoon tee until i saw this. EIGHT.i want a break from my usual red polish and purple is my favorite color. NINE.i recently discovered Kork-Ease and made a purchase and now i want this as well. TEN.i haven’t wore a watch for so long that i don’t even remember,but i saw this and i want it. i cant decide if i want black or white. ELEVEN.i like anything that i can interchange – RAYBAN.
this year i put together a mother’s day wish list. and of course this list is great for other occasions (i.e.birthdays, i love you day, i need to buy you something, i am sorry please forgive me & i have money so heres a gift for you).
i put together two lists. one is under $100 and the other is $100 and above and with the latter some of them are hard to get in the US but hey if you have the money to get it, you probably got people of your own that can track it down or you could probably take a midnight flight on your own jet to get to that location and purchase it. and who knows, maybe you know the owner of that product.
as for me, i want it all of course. well, still not sure about the whole dinner in the sky thing but i have to include it since the idea of it since kind of cool and somewhat romantic.
happy shopping girls + boys + kids.
from one mom to another.
ONE. kate’s paperie: Campo Marzio Measuring Tapes. always good thing to have in your bag. everyone needs to measure a little something something every once in awhile and those IKEA paper measuring things are not so great and not so cute to have in your bag/purse/diaper bag.
TWO. Nixon Newton watch. i haven’t wore a watch in a long time. i pretty much use my iphone to tell me time and also because ever since i have a baby i try to not wear anything on my arm since it always end up scratching the kid. BUT with that being said, i want this in purple. and i think if you are a mom, this is pretty kid friendly to have on your arm.
THREE: fresh SUGAR LEMON EAU DE PARFUM. anything by fresh is pretty good. any lovely ladies love to smell good and/or smell pretty things. you cant really go wrong with this.
FOUR: Sweater Knit Bird Throw. its always nice to have something cute and neutral color around for cozy up time.
FIVE: ban do’s gold bow bobbi. this is super cute. you can clip it pretty much wherever and every lovely lady needs a good bow.
SIX: IzabelDesigns’s beadwoven ring. this is simple and unique and the price is great. you can get this and something else on the list to make it extra special.
SEVEN: i have been eyeing these two items forever, especially the EmersonMade one. but the ban.do one is pretty awsum as well. its hard to decide which one so i would get both. the bigger the better i say.
EIGHT: Orla Kiely Eau de Parfum Spray. never smell it but anything Orla Kiely i want.
NINE: Lollia handcremes is super smelling good. whenever i am at an Anthropologie shop, i always go and put some of the handcreme on and sometimes even spray their sample perfume. you cant go wrong with this stuff.
TEN: Matt Pugh’s Walnut Owl with Red Top. too cute to not have on her desk or on her bookshelf or by her bedside table. i want it in all colors.
ELEVEN: Yudu’s Personal Card-Making Screen Printer. i got a gocco and i hear this one is just as nice and would be a great gift for a craft mom. and who knows she can use it to send you a thank you card.
TWELVE: i love all things Anthropologie and this heart shape necklace is very simple and nice. its actually kind of hard to find a nice heart shape necklace without looking like you went and bought it from Claire’s or borrowing it from your little cousin. and lately i’ve been feeling wearing gold, especially rose gold.
ONE: MIFFY! i love me miffy. this miffy light is pretty hard to get if you are in the US but its super cute and any moms would want that for their kids. i know i would.
TWO: Weather Report Cape. i don’t know why this is so expensive but its pretty darn cute and its very useful for a mom with little one on a wet day. its hard to find a nice looking raincoat wearing gear and a different one aside from all the Burberry coat i see on a rainy day.
THREE: Sweetheart Bib Necklace. this necklace is just super delicious. its like adult candy necklace. its very lusty indeed.
FOUR: Mika Piirainen ‘s A line dress. i love it. i love dresses like this. so perfect for all year round in SF. with boots, with sandals, with socks+platforms. now if only it has pockets.
FIVE: DIEPPA RESTREPO shoes. no price listed but i am very sure its way more than $100. so shiny and nice. every mom needs a pair of dancing shoes.
SIX: Alex Monroe’s bicycle necklace. this is pretty sweet and good one to wear since i am sure the kids would like it as well. i never seen this one in person but this bicycle necklace from Anthropolgie is pretty nice as well but seems a bit bulkier but its way cheaper.
SEVEN: Evans Cycle | Pashley Poppy Hybrid Bike. this is very cute. imagine a mom with her kid taking a ride to her neighborhood stores or local farmers market.
EIGHT: See by Chloe | Closed Toe Wedge Sandals. these are great platforms for those super moms that are still okay wearing heels with their kids. it would go great with the aforementioned dress or any spring/summer dresses.
NINE: dinner in the sky. need i say more. if you actually went and got this as a mother’s day present, please email me and tell me everything.
TEN: Madsen Bikes. this is truly awsum. any mom would love to have this to carry their children around along with the kids’ stuff. i want one in pale yellow.
i hope you will find these two lists useful and please feel free to email me to tell me which one you got. as for me, i am not sure what i will be getting my mom yet. i know. time is running tight. i have too many ideas and want to get my mom many things. as for me, i got another bundle of joy to celebrate mother’s day with me on top of my existing bundle of joy. its like mothers day for me everyday.

TWELVE: Zara dresses. i love me some zara shopping whenever i am overseas. and look at all these dresses. they are the perfect length and i want them in both black and red especially the tuplip dress. so perfect. so good. want want please.
THIRTEEN: Super Star earrings. not sure if my ears would be allergic to this but i like it. little tatoos on my ear lopes.

FIFTEEN: CC SKYE Lightning Bolt Necklace
SIXTEEN: Eggshell Zigzag Romper
EIGHTEEN: Brevity Horseshoe necklace.
NINETEEN: Johnny Cupcake + Hello Kitty. even though they were completely sold out pretty much right after it was on sale, i still want it.
its the first rain of the fall season after that annoying heat wave. i hope this will mean that fall is finally here to stay. it has to since i got my first pair of boots for this very fall season. heres some findings i did in the past few days. i am keeping it short since i am trying hard to not want too much.
here it goes:
these books ends are too cute. i want them all and put them all over our house since we got rooms in almost all our rooms. they are SO very cute and yet so very pricey but i SO want them.
their Dame and Knight A/W2010 line is pretty freaking fantastic. i want everything and somehow the girl model reminds me of Bjork. their dresses are my style especially the length. come to me or come to america or feel free to send me to you.
for the arrival of warm weather and warmer weather approaching i want to find ways to do more fun outside stuff with more fun warm weather clothing. and all this together is EXACTLY what i want and what i could wear everyday.
ive been waiting for my dress that i ordered and i thought it got lost or worse yet, it got sold out by the time my order was processed. i tracked my package and it said it was delivered and my first thought was – darn it all, someone stole it or maybe the mail delivery dude kept it. so i went to look and finally saw my hidden package(it was camouflage with my front porch). SO, sorry mr ups brown man for having evil thought of you stealing my package (even though you are always delivering stuff to me without fail. oops for bad thoughts.)
ANYWAY. here it is. my favorite spring dress (for now). i cant wait to wear it. i already have my shoes picked out. it will look super with my red shoes that i got last year from my handsomemanboy for my bday (which is still sitting nicely in the shoe box and never worn – if you know me well, you know i am a crazee dork that has a fear of wearing brand new shoes since i dont want them to get dirty. but yet i keep buying). or i could pair them with my TOM silver glittery shoes that i have on my feet daily (which i want to buy more of in every color).
oh boy oh boy! its the season to show them legs and be proud (?)
lately ive been posting a bit about dresses with pockets and how much i love them and how it is my ideal dresses. well here is another one for the list! i really do want this one and i can so use it all year around at my location. should i? can i? someone please tell me!!!!! oh pockets!
i like the shoulders of this dress. it reminds me of a neat little origami structure you will find display in a japanese stationery bookstore.
like i said in my previous post, there are some little details in a dress that makes it perfect for me. and one of them are pockets. i like pockets. a lot. its a nice place for my hands and a nice convenient place for little things that i might like to keep in there to keep my hands company. well, you get the idea. SO, with all this in mind, i wish i knew they made wedding dresses with pockets or thought of that when i picked out my wedding dress! i love my wedding dress (still wanting to put it on every now and then) very very much but pockets!!! c’mom. i could have asked for pockets for mine too since i am sure they could have done that… it would have been perfect since i never know what to do with my hands when i get nervous and have tons of people starring at me. and i cant really be biting my nails on my wedding day (even though you would think i could since it is MY SPECIAL DAY afterall). oh pockets! you came in too late in my life for my special day. but at least i have you on a regular everyday kind of day.
HARVEY FAIRCLOTH is rocking out her spring/summer line.
i saw these and want to put them on and go flying up in the air with the giant fluffy marshmellow in the sky just like KiKi in the movie KiKi Delivery Service(and oh! her giant red bow! it inspires me the day i was exposed to the movie).
all the dresses contain a certain element of what i want in a dress – big puffy sleeves, pockets in the front, perfect length, buttons, a-line and SO much fun to be had.
oh! how i wish i can wear them when spring comes!! please show up at my door step and let me have you!
