Holiday Gift Guide: Food, Fun & Friends!

We’ll applaud if you’ve been nice,
and we won’t judge if you’ve been naughty,
whatever it is
’tis the season to be jolly.


We are almost at the end of the year, and it’s incredible how fast the year has rolled by. Perhaps we aren’t great at time management, but we’d prefer to believe that we were too busy enjoying ourselves to notice!

This is the season where the streets are decked out in shiny lights (or combusting into flames i.e. burning Christmas Tree along Orchard Road), retailers trying their hardest to outdo each other by offering the best deals and restaurateurs busy pushing out decadent desserts and feasts for all.

While the glamour of our current surroundings definitely calls for our full attention, this is one of the best times to reflect on how the year has treated us.

This season, we want to appreciate all the missteps that we’ve taken and the calculated risks that has made us stronger and wiser.

We hope to forgive ourselves for the words we wished we hadn’t left unsaid and apologize for the snide remarks we made under our breath.

We are going to work towards letting go of the people that didn’t stick around, shower the ones that did with the affection and attention they deserved, and make room for the people that are on their way to us this coming new year.

So whether you’re a Christmas caroler or simply basking in the excitement of the festive season, we’ve come up with a list of goodies that we believe would make the perfect gift to the people that stayed by our side this entire year.

Fun for Fall: Playful yet Professional

“Fashion is never wrong.”
― Malcolm McLaren


Fun in Fall

Striking a balance between the appropriate attire for school or work versus wearing what you actually want to wear whilst keeping up with the trend is definite a tough day to day decision to juggle. Understandingly, it’s definitely easy to subconsciously create a work uniform for yourself consisting of the same nude pumps, shift dress and blazer combination.

While we love and believe that every wardrobe needs its own variation of go-to staples such as aforementioned nude pumps, and a well-fitted shift dress and blazer, we believe that sometimes, reinventing your ensemble doesn’t require too much effort or change.

Lifestyle of the Broke and Beautiful

“And now, I’m just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time.”

― Lady Gaga


 

Sometimes life just isn’t as smooth sailing as it should be.

Often times, your overdue bills, delayed paychecks, project deadlines and severely worn-down, blister-inducing shoes demands your attention all at once and you have to cut back on your time and money.

Going through the week with a tiny pocket, clinging on to any extra nap time with projects on the side is definitely a scenario I’ve been through one too many times than I’d actually like to admit.

Cutting back is not fun, but it surely gave me an opportunity to get crafty and actually force me to be a smarter consumer.

From my own experience, here are some of the things I have coveted, discovered and fell in love with on one of my many penny-pinching, deadline-dreading days.

Wear Your Tech

In keeping with the recent Digital Fashion Week 2015, the students from National Technological University’s School of Arts, Design and Media have designed and curated their works at the ArtScience Gallery over the weekend.

Fusing fashion and technology, the students were challenged to create a piece that explores current and cultural issues in our surroundings whilst engaging the audiences’ senses and sensibility.

Joining forces with engineers and scientists, the students also delved into understanding how technology is used with our body, and with that creating pieces that aims to excite, inspire and bring light to the issues that they are passionate about.

One of our favorite pieces included Alicia Phua’s Luminarium. Inspired by spores on the folds of fungus, an association to death and decay, Alicia created a shift dress with light-activated curlicues made from kraft paper rotating on a DC motor.

She’s a global style icon, and she practically stole the spotlight on the red carpet during the Bond premiere of Spectre. The 33-year old Duchess of Cambridge was dressed in abespoke diaphanous pale robin-blue floor-length gown by designer Jenny Packham. Ooh, and we’ve also noticed that Kate was appeared to have gone sans brassiere. Risqué!
