Donate Cars For Pets

Thursday, December 30, 2010

As an animal lover I'm thrilled to just recently found out that you could actually donate your car to help provide food, shelter and care for animals in need! This post is especially for my US readers who are an animal lover like myself. By donating your car you will be supporting the efforts to end animal cruelty and therefore reduce animal sufferings, hopefully it will eventually bring a great change for animals.

There's an organization called Cars Helping Pets where you could donate car for pets. Cars in any condition are accepted. Please be an angel if you have an old car or a broken one that you don't use anymore in your garage and donate it with a simple car donation process. Your donated vehicle will be sold at the highest possible value and the proceeds will be used to help reduce animal cruelty and to provide medical treatment and caring for countless animals through out the nation.

Look at these cute faces..

don't you wanna help them?

Donation is easy. You can use their online car donation form (auto donations accepted nationwide) or call their friendly staff who will help you through the donation process. Once your donation is submitted you can arrange for pick-up and they will send you your IRS tax deductible car donation receipt.

As previously mentioned, they accept cars in any condition therefore you can donate your car even though it's a non-running car. Every car donation will be valuable to Cars Helping Pets! And don't worry about the towing fee, it's free too! All you have to do is arrange the time for pick-up and be a hero ^__^

Remember, with your car donations animals will be saved!

You can read their FAQ page to read more details about how to donate cars.
And if you wish to call them: 1.888.990.4PET(738).

[Imaginary]: Room Decorator

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

I have two imaginary play series in this blog: the Party Planner and the Room Decorator, both are my hobby and passion beside fashion and traveling. In this series I pretend to be either a party planner or an interior designer/decorator. Today I would play a Room Decorator, and here's the scheme:

Client : 
Family of 6 :
- Husband & Wife
- 2 Daughters ( 1 teenage & 1 toddler)
- 1 Son (tween age)
- 1 Grandma

Room Requirements :
- at least 3 bathroom (1 en-suite in master bedroom)
- 1 craft room for grandma
- a separate breakfast area
- a sunny living room
- a laundry room

Preferred Style : 
Cottage / Country style for public area and master bedroom
Girly Chic for the teenage daughter's room
Dreamy for the little kids rooms
--------------------------------------------------------

 
And here are my suggestions...

FIRST FLOOR
The sunny living room:
myhomeideas
 
 Kitchen at the back area:
pointclickhome
And a separate breakfast area right beside the kitchen counter:
potterybarn
 And the Dining Area at the opposite side of the kitchen/breakfast area:
housetohome.co.uk

The Teenage daughter's bedroom:
Teenage Daughter's Bathroom (this is also a guest bathroom):
countryliving

Grandma's craft room, right next to the above bathroom:


UPSTAIRS
The Master bedroom:
...with en-suite bathroom:

The Tween Boy's bedroom:

and the toddler daughter's bedroom:

The little kids shared bathroom:



BASEMENT:
Grandma's Bedroom:
Grandma's tiny bathroom:

The Laundry Room right next to the tiny bathroom:

And my work as an interior decorator is done! All the client's requests are fulfilled and they're happy with my work (or at least this is what happened in my imagination ;p).
And that's the end of our game, i hope you enjoy playing with me ^o^

The "I Can Do It" sock! (Review+GIVEAWAY) - CLOSED

Friday, December 17, 2010

Hey you guys, have you enter the giveaway on my fashion blog? it's open for worldwide and will end on Dec 21 so you better hurry up if you wanna win some hair accessories :)

So anyway, I know some of you are very lucky to already have little kids or toddlers in your life so this review might be useful for you. Last week I was sent this cute little green froggy socks from EZsox. ==>> It's the "I Can Do It" sock!


Why did they named it the "I Can Do It" socks?
Because with Ez sox your kids can learn how to put on a sock by themselves!
It's a helpful teaching tool for parents to help their kids build their self-confidence especially if you have pre-schoolers in your family, with EZ Sox they can learn to dress themselves.

EZ Sox has a unique design that makes it possible for your kids to learn putting on their socks with ease. Every EZSox has a reinforced loops at the top with a strong grip that can be pulled up easily with tiny fingers.


Here's a video from their website to show you how EZ Sox works:

Aaww aren't they adorable? And did you notice how easy it was for all the cute little toddlers to pull it up themselves? and how they all looked so proud that they can do it themselves? that's what's so special about EZ Sox, it encourage children to dress themselves!

The cute animal faces on the front also act as a guide, showing them which way is up. I've checked the socks and the print is of good quality, the fabric is also soft yet durable with seamless stitching all over plus a very neat stitching inside. It's made of 80% Combed cotton, 17% Polyester and 3% Spandex.
The bottom of the socks are non-skid so it's safe for your kids if they decide to run around on slippery floor (although I wouldn't recommend your kid to run around on slippery floor ;p)


Aside from the good quality and the practicality of the socks, EZ Sox also comes in many animal prints to choose from. For this holiday you can opt for a gift boxed set that you can order on their online store. Other than the cute animal prints EZ Sox also offer solid ones. The socks are available for 2-3 yrs and for 3-5 yrs children.

I personally think some of the prints are unisex so it's perfect for a gift if you're not sure, or if there are 2 toddlers in the house with different gender.



SWEET DEALS!
EZ Sox is currently offering Free Shipping for ALL ORDERS in the continental USA, with NO MINIMUM!
This offer expires 12pm Saturday, Dec 18, 2010

Restaurant Review: MARCHE

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

Last week me and hubs were having dinner at Marche at Plaza Senayan, it's been one of my favorite restaurant since I went there the first time ^o^ I love it's ambience because it's a themed restaurant. It has a very detailed decoration that makes us feel like we were in a European village's market/farm/scenery, well actually it's Switzerland scenery to be exact, complete with Heidi corner! Ha!
The scenery include a 500 year old chalet, a Switzerland ski-lift cabin and many other decorative things that were brought originally from Switzerland!

Since I basically love decoration so I always find myself amused with themed places such as themed restaurant, themed hotel, etc.. Like that one time when I was visiting Genting highland in Malaysia, the place was like a magic tour to me, it was fully decorated with fun details, complete with indoor theme parks and decorative details in every nooks and cranny. That's what I loved, an attention to details! And Marche is just like that, the decoration detail fills every corner, even on those corners where you probably won't notice.

 

There are several food stalls inside the restaurant that are decorated like a village market stall. We would be given a card at the entrance which we will then use to "order" food & drinks from the stalls. We can browse the stalls and choose which food we want to eat, then we give the card to the person attending the stall so that our card can be stamped. And then when we finished eating, we would give the stamped card to the cashier and they will sums up the fees based on the stamps and we can pay the totals. Don't worry, the food & drinks price are on every stalls so you won't get blindly cheated ^o^ The price range from medium affordable (say.. IDR 35k - 45k for chicken and pizza) to IDR 65k - 90k and up for other food such as seafood or rosti with side dish. The food were excellent and the ingredients are all fresh!

My favorite stall is the bakery/pastry stall near the entrance, because it has a very strong "market" feels, I feel like I'm in a local European market, picking breads and sweets to bring back to my hotel ^o^
There are many dining area that you can freely choose. I love the cabin and log style dining area, it feels very original. You can also take your seat inside the ski-lift! There's also a huge screen that depicts a non-stop movie about Switzerland scenery (which is breathtaking, by the way). Oh and there's a "waterfall" at the corner near the bathroom! And the bathroom itself is fully decorated, feels like you're in snow ski cabin. There's also a changing pad for babies inside the bathroom, thumbs up for that (although I also saw a tiny little bug inside the cubicle, whoops!).

This time we chose to sit at the "dairy farm wooden cabin", complete with big cow head and cow printed pillowcases! As a cow print lover I could just die there because a lot of the items are all cow-printed or cow-shaped which were so friggin cute!


a cow! right beside our table's wall! :D
It feels like we were dining in a farmer's cabin in the green mountain of Switzerland where they shoot the Sound Of Music! Haha okay, I imagine too much... ;p But every time i dine there I always feel like I'm not in Plaza Senayan anymore ;p Hubs loved it too!

Oh I also went to another themed restaurant called Nanny's Pavilion where the decorative theme is around a "bathroom/powder room". If you're curious you can check it in my fashion blog here. There's also a giveaway currently going on there ^__^

House Of Harlow 1960 & Shopbop (+Giveaway !) - CLOSED

Saturday, December 11, 2010

The holiday season is here as we know it and here goes the shopping season :) 
If I were to make a wish list then I'd be sure to include "any item from House of Harlow 1960". Don't laugh, I'm serious, LOL. For those of you who don't know, House of Harlow is Nicole Richie accessories line. The truth is I always love Nicole Richie sense of style, I even made a post about her fashion here many months ago. I always love what she wore and therefore when she decided to do her own line of jewelry I was very excited to see it. And very excited I was! The line screams her name all over, it's all very "nicole richie". It has that bohemian and a bit of ethnic / tribal / folk touch to it. The bottom line is: it's Beautiful.


These pretty jewelries are so beautiful it would be perfect for any woman's holiday gift. They would look perfect to wear to the holiday parties too... oh you'll look so stunning in them :)

Those are from Shopbop website. I love browsing Shopbop. They got many designers collections to choose from and many of the collections are on sale at Shopbop. Shopping is quite easy too, they categorized everything so you can look for your interest without hassle. Oh and you should look into their Bags section, they have an abundant type of bags from various brands & designers. Either you're looking for a designer hobos, an oversized handbags, or just a simple womens totes, you can find it all there. Well a new handbag is on my wish list too so.. dear hubby, if you read this.. (hint hint) ;p

Anyway, some of the House Of Harlow jewelries are currently on sale now at Shopbop so you might wanna take a look at it. There are also some black boots as well as the retro oversized sunglasses which is like a signature sunglass of Nicole ^o^
And many other items from other great designers too, of course! What a place to shop!
