Writer’s Workshop: Zee Best Picks This Month

New water bottles purchased for the kids

New water bottles purchased for the kids

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.

Customised Family braclets

Customised Family bracelets

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.

What are your most recent favorite things?
