Long time blog readers will know that one of my favourite brands is Kate Spade. I love their brand identity and their products which capture everything playful, quirky and colourful in the world filled with lots of brights and bows.

However like all designer items for me, they are usually lusted after rather than purchased due to my frugal spending habits (of generally not wanting to spend more than $100 on any one item of clothing/bag/shoes).  I am however really lucky to currently own 2 Kate Spade items.  A large oversized clutch that was ridiculously reduced at a sale in Hong Kong and a little clutch given to me as a birthday present a few years back from two very dear friends.  I have always had my eye on a Kate Spade bag though...

So I when I spied on twitter the other night that they are having an online sample sale (up to 75% off!), I quickly trotted on over to have a look... After some umming and aaahing (and some gentle prodding from the Mr) I ordered this delightful blue bag (I heart the lining) at a bit of a bargain.  It's been shipped and currently on its way courtesy of the lovely folk at Singapore VPost (allows you to get stuff delivered from sites where their shipping is restricted to certain countries).

She should be arriving shortly... and I feel very grown up - hmmm I think I might need to give her a name!

Lovely choice hun! I would have picked that out too. I got something from the sample sale too - Emma Pilsbury (Glee)'s red bow cardigan :P

dealing with toxic people...

This blog is my little outlet, a fun happy creative place for me.  I have always tried to keep the blog positive and keep the negative out of it, but unfortunately I am already struggling to meet my new year goals which I only listed down days ago.

My goal to try and not stress out about things I can't fix is not going too well.  Sometimes you encounter some toxic  / negative people in your life and currently I am struggling a little on how to best deal with it.

I went to my trusty Google and typed "how to deal with toxic people" and I found this helpful post.  I hope it helps you too when you are dealing with some difficult people.   I have extracted below what I found helpful, which will hopefully get me back on track!
Avoid toxic people. In some cases it may not be an option (ie work!), but more often than not, it is. It is also common to believe you can get a toxic person to change while interacting with them. You will not get them to change and trying it simply is…

Unfortunately Singapore has a bit of a lacklustre reputation for being boring, sterile, uncultured... especially in comparison to other Asian developed cities like Hong Kong + Tokyo.  Yes it is true that the vibe here is different to those other cities, but I think Singapore is definitely coming into its own and a lot has changed (even in the 3 years I have lived here).
