e-shopping my way

I regularly get email updates from sites like Amazon and Sephora informing me of upcoming sales or new inventory.  As you can see, I am a devoted online shopper. I have bought a lot of stuff online and had them conveniently shipped right to my doorstep.

Here are some of my new purchases, mostly baking paraphernalia:

a cake level slicer...   
 
a tiered cooling rack...

a cupcake transporter/holder...
 

a cupcake stand...
It doesn't need Holmes to deduce that I am sooo into a "baking" state of mind.   I really am and happily so!  Sadly, most people cannot relate.  Friends have asked, "A cupcake what?!?  Why do you need a cupcake courier for?  Because really, who ever needs to carry that much cupcakes around?"  Uhmm, I do not even offer to come up with an answer, because really I have none. It just looked too cute.  Fortunately, the person who pays for my purchases understands me.  He finds it funny that there is even such a thing as a cake leveler, ribbing me, "what, using a plain knife too low-tech now?" tee-hee!

If there ever was one purchase that amazed everyone (they were amazed mostly because they found out I have been trimming R's hair with it), it would have to be this... 

One of the most practical and worthwhile purchases I've made.  This razor stays true to its promise of giving a professional looking job.  I spend almost P300 (P250 for the haircut plus P50 tip) every other month to get R's hair buzzed off by a barber  And believe me when I tell you that his hair grows at an incredibly speedy rate.  I usually try to extend our trips to the barbershop as long as I can before his hair starts screaming, “Cut me!”   I figured that if I invest in this I would eventually be saving thousands.  The thing probably paid for itself in the 3rd or 4th haircut at home.  Yeah,  I am cheap like that! :)

His hairstyle is so simple and the razor so uncomplicated that even someone like me, who has no experience nor formal training in hair-cutting, can easily pull off a professional look in no time.  Promise!  Just remember three things:  Guide #5 for the top, Guide #3 for the middle and Guide #2 for the sides.  That's it!
Now, excuse me while I go trim R's hair before we go off for a swim on this hot Saturday afternoon!
