and then the other things

now that i have the Canon EOS 400D (*gloats*), i want a pretty hardy case to protect it in. cos i wanna put it in my pretty, big bag. cos i don’t find many camera bags very sexy. and i don’t like not feeling sexy. unless i’m out on an experimental photo expedition and i gotta carry me boxy bag out.

i don’t know what else to say about this other than i want it. travel clutch by Smythson, includes pockets for tickets, passport, credit cards, documents and others. made of linen + teflon. need i say more?

i’ve wanted a rocking chair forever, but something which doesn’t take up too much space. i love this chair, but i’m not sure it’s comfortable enough to snuggle in and read a book for hours in. and the pricetag? holy macaroons.

i love glass. i love pretty. i love pretty glasses. these are Akiko Glassware by Kenzo.

Locher’s tops, cos you can be good and dirty.

honeycomb shelves. yuuuuuum.

Le Creuset sets in Dubai cost far too much. like KitchenAid standmixers. i should strike against Jashanmal’s outrageous prices. if only Amazon doesn’t have geographical limitations to ship products like these.

a bento box. just because. i love. compartments.

we live in a one-bedroom apartment fit for two (and perhaps a cat if Ravi’ll allow it) and sometimes i worry about where to put our guests should they decide to stop by Dubai for a short holiday. this Cube Bed looks like it offers fantastic spinal support, is large enough for one entire human being (and a cat) and folds away into a perfect little cubic footstool or seat when it’s not needed! we can have a few to keep our Fatboys company.
