I have been doing a lot of shopping lately. I’ve been visiting the websites like Amazon, iHerb and Taobao a few online shops very frequently. You can say that I’ve already completed purchasing all the Christmas presents that I wish to get this year for the family.
This year I’ve decided to start shopping early so that I can make sure that all my purchases arrive before we leave for our year end holidays.
I bought these new Lock and Lock water bottles which I ordered from Taobao ( Shown above) for the kids. I love that they there is no drinking straw and really easy to clean. I used to struggle with cleaning the kids water bottles as they came with those irreplaceable straws which collected a lot of dirt and were impossible to clean at places. These water bottles have a small sprout so that water doesn’t spurt all over or spill easily when the kids drink from it. There is also a cover so that the spouts are kept clean.
Adeline’s Loft is the place that I go to whenever I’m seeking to expand my jewelry collection. I love that she is able to customize orders and makes really lovely pieces.
This year I wanted something special and meaning for the family. I got Adeline to customize a set of bracelet for each one of us. Each member of the family has a bracelet made in his/her favourite colors and there are elements in the bracelet which are unique to each individual and common as a family.
Each bracelet has a heart on it to symbolize our love for each other and GOD. The girl’s bracelet and mine have pink hearts on it while the boys have a silver heart like their dad’s one.
The word HOPE talks about our hope for our kids and for them to have hope for their own future while the 3 crosses on the adult bracelets represents the crosses that we have to bear for each kid.
