A new wardrobe...

A little baby B is on his/her way in November so that means the time had come for this mama-to-be to buy some new clothes... so on the weekend I traipsed off to Orchard Road to pick up some new things.

First stop was Uniqlo - one of my favourite stores and one of the best places I think for basics.  I picked up a breton stripe nautical top. a stripey dress and yes I admit it... denim jeggings... I can't turn down an elastic waist these days :)

At Mango I found some bright blue goodies - a pair of elastic waisted shorts and a stretchy jersey dress for work/evening...  


Whilst not a new addition to the wardrobe, I did end up buying the cutest little giraffe for the little bub from Muji.   The Mr and I have since christened this little cutie "Rafael" and he is patiently waiting the arrival of his new owner/friend.  




All in all not a bad shopping day and I successfully avoided purchases at 'maternity' shops which from the few I walked into on the weekend were all pretty fugly!   Hmmm maybe a niche market business idea for Singapore? :)

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Japan love...

Some friends of ours are currently holidaying in Japan (they were also our wedding photographers and have an awesome blog here. If you are getting married I definitely recommend them)...
Anyhow, I have been reading their tweets and status updates and am reminiscing and dreaming about Japan.  I spent a year in Sapporo on exchange whilst at uni and have visited Japan I think at least 4 other times... it has been about 2 years since my last visit so perhaps another one is due soon?!?!  There is just something about the place that I love - perhaps it is the memory of some amazing times, the delicious and unique food, the shopping or the wonderful people... I can't put my finger on it but you MUST get there if you haven't already.  
On shopping, some of my must visit stores are:

Uniqlo:  Your one stop shop for basics.  They have also partnered with many designers, companies, artists for the UT project - limited edition tshirts.   UT t-shirts are available in all Uniqlo stores but c…
