Despicable Me-inspired nail art using Etude House Summer polishes


Summer season = lot's of movies released, and one of the movies that I am looking forward to is Despicable Me 2. It would be out in most cinemas next week. I was inspired to do a movie-themed nail art so I decided to try out a minion nail art. The nail colors used are from the summer collection by Etude House. The bright yellow tone is a great perky color for the warm weather! Step-by-step details in the post below!

Infinity Bracelet DIYs


I love layering and making arm candies. Recently, I picked up some infinity charms from the craft store. The charms are gold with clear crystals. I was tempted to do some braided bracelet design or chain layering. While I rummaged through my craft supplies, I found a strand of off-white pearls and decided to do this combination of an infinity bracelet! I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

In conjunction with the Sanrio Character Ranking, a Sanrio mook was released recently. I got it some time back, before the character ranking even started. It's a real treat for all Hello Kitty/Sanrio fans!

Ladurée Singapore's Keyring back in stock!


I was extremely excited to chance upon the Ladurée keyring (commonly referred to as the bag charm/keychain)! It was sold out in Singapore when it was first launched earlier this year in April (during the Ladurée opening). The second batch of stocks arrived on June 14 (Thursday), and the keychain/keyring/bag charm has been flying off the shelves! I managed to pick up a few of them, and in what I know the Mint and Rose one is almost sold out. The one shown above is mint, with the light blue box.

Cooking Pitan Tofu


I realized that I've never really blogged about cooking and food here, so here's my first DIY post that's dedicated to food! I love Japanese cuisine, and one of my favorite dishes is Pitan Tofu. It's a fusion dish, and I love how the silky tofu goes with the creamy sauce.

Etude House Missing You Blanket GWP


I picked up some new products and sale items from Etude House, and am quite excited to share about the new GWP that I spotted in store! It's a Missing You Blanket with the owl as a cape/hood. How cute is that? It's a GWP for purchases above SGD60. I haven't started to use it as the weather is pretty warm, but it would be great for those rainy days and cold nights. I've always been a huge fan of the interesting GWPs from Etude House and spotting this in stores was a pleasant surprise!

Safety catches for earrings


From time to time, I come across random interesting finds at Daiso, and recently I found something very useful for earring wearers- safety catches! The one I got is in the shape of little hearts, but I also spotted other variants such as stars or just plain round safety catches.
