ADD A THIRD PARTY TO YOUR LIFE

Calm down… It’s not what you think. There’s nothing gossipy you will be able to find in this article. Sorry to disappoint, but we thought we’d be a good friend and tell you of some third party payment methods you can begin a relationship with. Wait a minute, but couldn’t you just access worldwide online shops with just your credit card at hand? That was the whole point of the Visa campaigns that tell you the world is at your feet, isn’t it? Well, it turns out that there are still some sites and companies that still may not accept foreign credit cards, which will amount to quite some disappointment when you’re on a shopping spree on a new cool label or site you’ve just discovered. So we’ve been searching for some ways you can work around it and do all the shopping to your heart’s content. Another reason besides..

SAY, “I DO, I DO, I DO, I DO, I DO”

Ah, yes. It’s that familiar season. And if you read our blog title you’d know what this article is about. Typically, there are two intense wedding seasons in Singapore and the first one starts sometime around now and builds up until June. But what’s so special about this year’s wedding season that it gets a whole write up all about it? Erm… maybe because the BIGGEST WEDDING OF THE YEAR of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is coming up on May 19th? Truth be told, we are pretty excited. So much prettiness in the fashion and accessories department coming up and we just can’t wait! Some of you might be in the blissful throes of wedding planning too. But unlike the royal family, you don’t have an abundant budget to throw around. Let’s face it, not many of us can get the wedding of our dreams. Already, the per table..

HOW TO SLAY AT ADULTING

We’re not trying to sound like we are whining, but let’s all at least agree that ADULTING IS HARD WORK!  On paper, you become an adult once you hit 21. Once you get to that age, all of a sudden everyone expects that you have life all figured out. You should know where your career is heading, you are expected to know how to do your taxes, you need to have your retirement plan all figured out, and you need to make sure you house does not look and smell like a dorm room. Most of the time though, you’d be like this… Well, we can’t help you with your career plans, or your taxes, or retirement fund. But we can help you figure out all the other little things. Or rather, we can recommend some gadgets that will help get your life in order, and you won’t even need a..

HOW TO TRAVEL… LIKE A BOSS

Traveling is one of those luxuries that we can all get behind. Especially since being of Singapore, we can agree that you run out of things to do pretty quick in this little red dot.   Hey, don’t take it from us. It was reported last year that Singaporeans took an average of 5.2 trips within 12 months.  So we thought we could show you what it could be like to travel with style, regardless of whether these trips are for business, or for pleasure. Because not everyone is comfortable bringing their chou-chou everywhere they go.     FLYING HIGH Unless you’re really rolling in it, you’d most likely be flying in economy class, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t travel and have style. Since jeans are practically an essential for you to stay stylish in travels, might as well get the most comfortable and high-quality jeans you can get your hands..

YOU WILL BE REELING FROM THE CHOICES OF FABRICS FOUND HERE

Thanks to a few courses currently being offered by Skills Future, there’s been a mini revival of the skill of sewing. We also know of many Singaporean mummies who love making little clothes or accessories for their little ones. Completing a project for someone we love especially comes with such a sense of achievement. But what makes sewing as a hobby additionally fun is the excuse it gives us to shop. That’s countless hours trawling through Spotlight, Arab Street or People’s Park Complex trying to find the perfect fabric to work on a new personal project. And yet we have to admit that the choices we get locally are still limited, and sometimes expensive. But thanks to some friends who are hobbyists, and who have also spent many hours researching for online shops to get special kinds of fabric types and prints, we have put together short list that will..

BUZZWORD OF THE DAY: GST

These are three letters that everyone keeps talking about of late. The announcement that the Goods and Services Tax will be raised from 7% to 9% (to be effected between 2021 and 2025) truly shook the ground, even if there were murmurings that this came at no surprise.  Some might complain that even though it seems to be a small increase in the eyes of percentages, some retailers and merchants might use this as an excuse to increase prices way beyond the 2% increase.  On the other hand, some might even wonder if this will even affect them in the long run. So we thought to put together a few things you need to know about how GST affects your online shopping.    WHEN DO YOU HAVE TO PAY GST? For most people who order smaller ticket items you might get away with never having to pay GST for the items you ship into..

REDEFINE YOUR SHOPPING MALL

If you’re an avid shopper you won’t be surprised to find out that Gap permanently left our shores this February. They aren’t the only ones, it seems that there was a mini exodus of other American labels also joining their exit.  Brands leaving Singapore isn’t new. Over the years, there have been many of our beloved international brands that have since closed their doors after a brief stint here.  Thank goodness for the internet because even though they aren’t physically here with us, we can still carry on with some form of a long-distance relationship with these shops, much like a boyfriend or girlfriend who has gone away for further studies.   BANANA REPUBLIC Like her sister company, GAP, Banana Republic closed their only Singapore outlet in Paragon this February. Shopping from their online store is a plus, since they release a wider range of designs for all manner of lifestyles on their site. We especially like their office wear range,..

FLOWERS THAT COME TO LIFE

We may not have the luxury of the four seasons, but spring in fashion is still eagerly looked forward to not only because we get more wearable clothes that suit the signature Singapore heat, but also because there always seems to be a sense of renewal in colours and overall looks. This year, it seems that the trend of embroidery doesn’t seem to be dying out, and with good reason. Embroidery usually comes with things that speak of life and colour, like flowers. So here are a few pieces we saw that really took to our fancy from a few favourite merchants. FOR MUSIC FESTIVALS Free People has always been a label that brings in clothes that appeal to the boho-chic, and it always comes with a bit of an edge of daring. This cropped top, brightly embroidered with orange and yellow dahlias, is perfect for layering for a weekend..
