Zara Home

 What was I thinking browsing the Zara Home store with an intention of just buying a jewelry box? Fat chance. I found so many cute things I need...uhm want.

For bedroom and living room couple of cushions another table lamp.

For kitchen and dining room....Glass candlesticks and sugarbowl have been on my shopping list since the move. 

I wonder if Ellos is going to expand on their Zara Home selection in near future or should I just try to the Swedish online store..? Btw...why do all the cool things always go to Sweden first?

Neatly boxed

One of benefits of this hobby is that I have jewelry for all occasions and some extra. Downside of it is that I am struggling to find neat, functionable and pretty ways to store my jewerly. I have two stands on my dressing table, one for earrings, another for necklaces. However, most of my jewerly is stored in boxes and drawers where they get tangled up.

My bedroom is decorated in classic white with a hint of colour. I would like to maintain light and airy feel of the bedroom and thus have been looking for ways to store my jewelry that fits this criteria. Mostly I've come across rather ornate and colourful jewelry boxes, but luckily Zara Home had some amazing boxes which could work as jewelry storage and they are so cute!

I was hoping my internet searched would have turned up modern white or black leather boxes with neat compartments. No such luck. If you know where I can find some please let me know. Also....I wish I could present much prettier layouts, but my laptop is still out of picture and with it all possibilities of image manipultion.

Down time

On return from New Year's celebrations I arrived home to find my laptop in a sorry state. Somehow its screen had been damaged and was newly decorated with horizontal and vertical stripes! Luckily I have a comprehensive home insurance to carry on the financial burden of such mysterious failures in technology, but the outlook of not having a computer for couple of weeks was pretty upsetting.

Imagine my horror now 18 days later of the incident, 15 days in the computer repair shop, zillion query phone calls and emails later and they haven't even ordered the parts. They were supposed to get an repair estimate for the insurance company in 3 days, it has now been two weeks. How bloody difficult it is to send the stupid estimate? Needles to say that I'm frustrated. Once I get the estimate it still needs to go through my insurance company and once the repair shop has received the money they can only start ordering spare parts. Any guesses how long this is gonna take? Judging by their performance so far - f****g forever.

I miss you Vaio.... come home soon
