Best Furniture Stores in Singapore…Part One

I can’t believe its been 3 months since my last post! Ive got a post coming up to explain/defend myself (sorry!) but in the meantime here’s one Ive been eagerly waiting to share… Moving to a new apartment gave us the (perhaps unenviable) task of hunting for new furniture. We took practically nothing with us,…

Finding, loving and owning your personal style…Part 1

The only thing harder than being 14 is being 14 in 2016…this is a hard time to be a teenager. I remember feeling so awkward and heavy in my body, hating all the clothes I owned and most of all, hating the lack of control I had over being able to choose what I wanted to wear….

NAIJA – SPORE STYLE INSPIRATIONS! ELLE.COM JUMPS ON THE BANGWAGON…

Elle.com recently posted an article titled ‘7 Designers to watch from Lagos’ Emerging Fashion Scene’. Whilst the spotlight is flattering, the tone of it’s introduction teetered on the patronising. There was an incredulity that a country known primarily for oil could have ‘a week devoted to fashion’, but in fact Nigerians have been known to…

The Curious Absence of a High Street….

The difference between living in Singapore and just passing through becomes extremely clear once you grapple with the frustration of shopping here.

BRUNCH OUTFIT #1

As a recent celebration of losing a few more pounds, I treated myself to a little shopping moment. I say moment and not ‘trip’ because after trying on a few items in a size larger than my norm, the venture came to a swift end! Still, I’m quite happy with my purchases and they are…

Furniture Hunting – Part Two

It’s becoming a full-blown obsession and my newest favourite thing to do – furniture hunting on a bank holiday. A friend and I squeezed in 5 stores in one day so here’s my review of each store. First stop was ‘I wanna go home’, a really elegant store that sells everything from kitchenware and soft…

Organic shopping -Singapore style!

Hello! This post is for anyone interested in organic shopping in Singapore and looking for good deals, especially anyone who’s recently moved here. Singapore has recently replaced Tokyo as the world’s most expensive city. This, I’m sure, is down to import taxes on goods like cars and clothes, but people also frequently complain about the…
