Rainbow Loom

I think all the kids are playing with the rainbow loom, that primarily makes friendship bands. My nieces make this for classmates and teachers.

You can also make accessories and clothes, Jimmy Kimmel wore it on his talkshow.

Vivienne Westwood Spring/Summer 2015

The new Virgin Atlantic Airlines uniforms by Vivienne Westwood, launched last year July 2014.

Vivienne Westwood is famous for her tartan printed bowling bags. Most people forget she is first a designer that makes clothes.


Vivienne Westwood Gold Label is her couture line where she lets loose her theatrical side and her clothes comes across as period drama inspired with dramatic flair.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label is her ready-to-wear line. It's more avant garde than theatrical but still manages to provide that panache to a daily look.

Vivienne Westwood MAN is her menswear line. I sure didn't know she made mens clothes. It has all these loud prints and colours, even the use of floral fabrics this season.

Vivienne Westwood even designs a seasonal wedding collection, remember Carrie Bradshaw's wedding dress in the movie?

This year the style is more scarf-like, fabric falls angular and adorned with a monochrome trim.

Yankee Candle Flea Market

Free full size items for members in this 1 day only event @ Vivocity. How amazing right? It's meant to clear damaged stock and other full size samplers sent over to Singapore. Mainly wickless jar candles. You can get a candle warmer for wickless candles to release the scent.

An up close view of the items up for grabs. I got a Sweet Pea diffuser set, celebrating 168th founder's day @ Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy

Sometimes I get it in big pump bottles, sometimes I get it in small tubes. A wonderful good quality product from a wonderful classic British brand. The small tubes of moisturizer allow me to try all the scents, it's also great for travel, keeping on the office desk, home spa days (good for 2 full body applications). My favorite scent is Rose (soo cliche) and India Hicks Island range.

Steamed Mussels

With the availability of farmed mussels in Singapore, this mollusc has become a very affordable snack/meal food. With just $1 or $2, you can make a big pot for the whole family/party.

Wash the mussels once or twice, until the water runs clear. Drop the pile into a pot with water and add just a splash of vinaigrette salad dressing (any kind you have in the fridge), that's how I do it. If you want to get fancy, use white wine instead.

Simplicity Iron-On Appliques

Someone told me iron-on patches are meant to mend holes in clothes. Until then, I always thought iron-on patches are meant as embellishments. Either way, it's good to stock up on these and even better when Simplicity has a sale ($1 to $2).

Paul & Joe Spring/Summer 2015

We see more retrolicious Americana clothing from Paul & Joe this season. Bonnet hats are too cute. These 2 floaty dresses are a departure from this collection's clothes, but closer to what other designers are doing this season.

The makeup collection this season is really fun with animal themes. Like a barnyard or zoo, can't decide which one it is.
