Handwoven Pocket Squares And Ties

30 Sep

Handcrafted, and from deadstock fabric, it is always wonderful to see more options for men. dcoybrand, by Hunter Monsour in USA,  comes with a card detailing how many items were made from the respective fabric, which could be quite limited. For instance, the striped pocket square above is one-of-a-kind. I love the tie on the left of the top image. <d>

The Eldredge Knot – An Alternative?

26 Sep

Lol this actually reminds me of how the traditional rice dumplings are wrapped with leaves. I’m up for trying it, at the very least just to learn something new. I think it looks better on non-printed ties – what do you think? <d>

Just Muji & I

30 Dec

I had received a Muji voucher as a gift for Christmas and decided that it’s about time we visited Muji, our love.

While we were in the store, some of the items were on sale. The seaweed shampoo is one that D and I have been using for a while and it helps in controlling oily scalps and dryness. It smells great too!

We have been collecting the shampoo bottles (we have 4 now) since we first bought it and have been keeping them so that we can recycle them for home use when our nest arrives (so that all hand soap and dish washing detergent bottles look coordinated in the house with probably a label to distinguish them). Once you remove all the labels, the bottle looks nice and zen. But since the shampoo in the bottle has been sold out, we got the refill instead. The difference is a mere S$3 but the difference is that you can save our mother earth. =)

I saw this new product in store – Seaweed Hair Milk  and found it interesting. Hair milk, doesn’t it sound nourishing? Will try and shall review soon. <5pf>

Muji : Organizers

13 Aug

Bought a few items to organize our stuff at home. As some of you know, we are fans of Muji and while I was having some me-time today, I found some lovely buys.

Acrylic Spectacle Shelf

D has 4 pair of glasses so this fit perfectly for him. You don’t see the 4th pair naturally because he is wearing it now. =) Made of durable acrylic and can be used either the way you see it here, or with the length flat by just removing the drawers and rotating it one side up.

Toiletries Bag

You can open it up wide and there are 3 compartments inside.

The smaller compartments are removable. For someone like me, this makes it so easy to bring my cosmetics, shampoos and all! And because it is not hard cover, it could be easily packed in my luggage.

Cosmetic pouch for home use

Couldn’t believe such a small bag like this fits all my make-ups! And can you see the 2 holders at each side of the  pouch? It holds up the top cover to prevent it from closing while you are using it and can be removed after used. Aren’t the Japanese innovative?? I miss Japan!!!!!!

Compartments for brushes and eyeliners. See the flap which covers the brushes? No problem if the brushes are slightly wet or dirty after use, the flap which is waterproof makes cleaning easy.

and here for everything else. On the right, they have elastic bands to hold your mascaras, eyeliners etc. On the left you can put bigger items like concealers, primers etc. For the pocket right at the back, I had filled it up with free samples. I love the fact that it is a all in one  pouch and I can simply pull it out from my drawer in the mornings and not make too much noise (like i did with the previous organizer) while D is catching on his sleep (he starts work an hour later than me. NOT FAIR!!*pout*).

I wish I could buy all the different sizes and designs of Muji’s toiletries bags and pouches because they not only look pretty to use, but comes in really handy. I want them all….. <5pf>

D’s new endeavour

29 Jul

compartments and organizing

short and sling handles

First all, congratulations D to your new endeavour!!

Seems like things are going well for D (wonder if I gave him some luck? hee! just kidding!). He was offered a branding job and starts work next week. I’m so happy for him!! To get things started, he went shopping for a work bag. D being D, design is crucial thus that was a challenge. After days of search, he got himself a Veja bag. The bag is made of calf leather (vegetable dye) and inner lining is made of cotton. It also has a compartment for laptop which was a key consideration in D’s purchase. I thought he looked good with it and most importantly, it will begin a brand new journey with him. All the best D!! <5pf>

D’s first online purchase!!

29 Jul
