Opulence for Little Ones

 

Honestly, these are extravagant!

However, I have to admit, if I had a million dollars to spare after charitable contributions, paying off whatever I lease/mortgage, investing in my family’s future AND buying as many expensive shoes and fountain pens (still two of my all-time obsessions), a couple of these opulent items might make the cut. In the meantime, I’ll just wait for these to pop up on ebay or craig’s list :)

Be warned… some of these are way too ridiculous – well, on second thought, ridiculousness is subjective :p

“Majestic Carriage Crib” at $20,000

Ahem! what can I say, it's opulent?!

 

“FAO Exclusive Barbie Foosball Table” at $25,000

Seriously? Like the only reason more girls might not be interested in a foosball table was because it didn't have female players. On a side note, this is also a little insulting to "Ken" - the least they could do is let him be part of the team - he's a Barbie too, you know!

Hair all done up, big bright Barbie smiles on their faces... these Barbies definitely look ready to play a very very rough sport, right?

 

“FAO Exclusive Jeweled Classic Etch-A-Sketch” at $15,000

For all your luxurious ideas!

 

“Swarovski Csrystal-Covered” case for $1000 and “My Carry Potty” at only $32

You are not yet a princess until you have a blinged out potty!

 

 “Album Di Famiglia Swaddler & Duvet Set” for $400

At a mere $400, you are literally wrapping your baby in money!

 

“FENDI Zucca Snowsuit with Fur + Mittens + Booties” for $670!

Correct me if I am wrong, but one could buy a snow blower for that price tag!

 

“Diamond Pacifier” for $17,000 – they’ll have to fully fund my child’s university education to get me measly interested!

The store's selling pitch: "There's no better way to show your super cool kids how much you love them than by getting them this 14k gold and diamond studded pacifier! At a measly $17,000, why not get one as a gift too? We'll even throw in the shipping for FREE!" - BABY WIT (online retailer)

 

And finally, “The Diamond Bathtub” for $5,200 – probably the  most ridiculous of them all, with all due respect to Kelly Rowland from Destiny’s Child of course, who reportedly gifted this blinged out bath tub to her bff Beyonce (source: Bump.com).

Why most ridiculous? Well… the retailer is so proud of their genius that, for just $5,200, they offer an array of creative ideas on how to re-use this extravagant buy. Ideas like “centerpiece at parties”, “beverage chiller, and “fun bath time for your pets”…

Enough Said!

Good Things Come in Pairs!

This post is definitely a little early, with Valentine’s Day still a few months away, but I couldn’t resist sharing these adorable finds with everyone.

We all know that there is absolutely no end to the variety of unique gifts available out there for… well, pretty much every relationship imaginable. Still, for most of us, when it comes to finding the right gift for that right person at the right occasion, our brains have a way of being lost in action. The pressure to perform is inevitable. Especially, if the gifts we choose to give are destined to stand trial against the ones we receive!

Like the ones for Valentine’s Day or Wedding Anniversary… or worse, Dating Anniversary: the mere ability to remember this occasion can be a trial in itself for spouses of certain gender ;) Now, now. Let’s not get into the details of what a Dating Anniversary is, shall we?

My finds for today neither require an occasion nor are they too expensive – not even hard to find. But make for sweet, witty and sometimes funny little reminders of your sentiments – great for couples. They are simple everyday items like pillowcases or drinking glasses but with a slight twist. These one’s got something to say… to each other!

At times, all we need is an idea and this idea has endless possibilities. You can try making your own versions at home or like me, if you lack the DIY gene, just buy!
