weekend baking?

I am hosting a playgroup this weekend for the westbay mothers and am looking
 for baking inspirations. All the mums take turns at hosting and in spite of their busy
schedules always serve up mouthwatering treats. We have had chocolate cakes, cherry pies, 
lemon green tea cupcakes ( my fav- L's)  and more. So I want to try baking something

Joy the Baker gave me this idea. 

Peanut Butter Banana Bread.
Need I say more?

I have some experience making banana bread, so am very excited to try this version. 

But I bumped into this blog- Shove it in your face ( scream ). She's a tough cookie this one, 
baking while hobbling about with a leg brace. A true die hard baking adddict made this gem
banana bread donuts.

Not real donuts just donut shaped bread but who cares.

Happy Thursday everyone. Smell something delicious this weekend!

Home Improvements

Right after days of organizing and decluttering, we have finally satisfied with the end result. The home is complete and I have the photos to prove it.

We got rid of the compound furniture and replaced it with our own massive pillowy couch.

Upstairs in the common area, I laid our oversize persian rug and hung up the Charley Harper prints. On the left of the picture you can peek into Zaggy's room which has gone through a major makeover.

This was the before.

And the after.

I bought the decals about 3 years ago back in KL but never used them. The walls were painted Forest Green and they look superb!

This is our room, the before...

And now after.

We don't have a headboard but an extra king mattress propped up against the wall, is now the makeshift headboard. I covered it with a fabric from Paradise Road in sri lanka but it doesn't cover the whole mattress unfortunately.

The other two Charlie Harper prints are on the shelf alongside my jewellery. A designer I met recently, gave me a jewellery stand in exchange for baby stuff. It is extremely hand for all my earrings and necklaces.

During the last trip to the UK, I went to one of my fav shops Skandium and bought these glass cases from iittala.

They are so tiny but so precious.

From me to you

A post for my little baby boy who will be turning 1 in a month's time.

I bought this book for you about 5 years ago, when you were just in my imagination. This book by Shel Silverstein still makes me tearful and to me, depicts a parent's love for their child in the most precious way.

The Giving Tree.

I had forgotten about the book until I saw this video from The Kid Should See This.
A moving picture circa 1973, narrated by the author who also played the harmonica.

Bad Teacher Good Style

Has anyone watched Bad Teacher? Starred Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake, it was a fun girlie night-in movie. I thought it was pretty hilarious but Diaz's outfits were too sexy to ignore. She's got the perfect figure for the pencil skirt and the skinny pants. I loved the ensembles but unfortunately could not find photos online.

On Etsy, a clothes designer from Romania - Lauragalic, had these super tailed jackets that I crave for. What do you think?

Pretty hot stuff.
