Elettra's goodness

I LOVE cooking shows.  I don't know what it is about them but I find them so relaxing.  

Today I chanced upon a new cute cooking series 'Elettra's Goodness' hosted by Elettra Wiedemann on the Vogue youtube channel.   The episodes are short (less than 5 mins) so it is a nice change to the usual cooking show format which often focuses on stepping through each recipe ingredient by ingredient.  

A couple of episodes are up already and they feature Elettra cooking and chatting with various celebrities including Karlie Kloss, Seth Myers, Grace Coddington and Blake Lively.  

The Blake Lively video is one of my favourites so far.   The brie wrapped in puff pastry dish that she makes looks heavenly (but then again I could eat anything wrapped in puff pastry!!).   She just seems really cool and sweet and nice.  Go take a look on this lazy Sunday x

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).

To get an idea of some of the creativity out there, check out lilreddotfolks. A bit like the Selby, this neat little blog gives you insights into the worlds and homes of some of the inspiring and creative peeps who call this island home.
