Starting 2022 with a Monthly Planner from Thelazeco- Sweet bunny

As the New Year approaches, it was time to prepare for the New Year by getting calendars and planners, I always look forward to getting a new planner because the fresh clean new pages make me feel like I have a clean slate, a fresh start full of hope for a meaningful year.

                                     

There are many assortments of Planners available these days, sometimes one may question which one is really the best? It is not a matter of the best but rather which one would be most suitable for you personally. I have gone through many planners over the years and had always stopped using them halfway leaving many wasted pages.

How to pick the perfect planner that is best for you- You have to experiment and have the discipline to actually use one, there is no point in writing everything down and not referring to it. After using a planner a couple of times you would find out what your style is. In my case, I prefer a monthly page. I prefer writing the main event of the day and listing down tasks that need to be done in a to-do list, quick and snappy.

Questions you should ask yourself before purchasing a planner –
  • Do you need a space to keep track of events and appointments?
  • Would you prefer to plan in a weekly or monthly format?
  • Do you need something portable to bring around with you or just one you like to keep at home?
  • Would you like a colourful planner with stickers or a minimalist planner.

After watching the Motel Makeover on Netflix, I caught the craze for terrazzo patterns so I went in search on Shoppe for one, I was glad I did so because my search lead me to find Thelazeco customised planners.


The A5 planner created by Thelazeco is exactly what I needed, I opted to only have the monthly pages for a monthly overview of the year. I plan to bring along this compact planner with me as it is compact and light. Choosing a layout that matches your style is important as you would be more comfortable using your planner and more likely to continue to use it for the whole year.

I really like how well thought and put together this hand-stitched booklet styled planner is.
It has a Soft Cover which is made with 250gsm Gloss Cardstock and the inner pages are text paper with 100gsm Off-White Paper which is clearly printed and neatly designed.

What is truly amazing about it is it is customisable. You are able to build your very own planner, the options are to have monthly and weekly pages, Monthly planner 2022 with Singapore Holidays indicated, notebook grid, notebook lined.

Another cool customisation the store offers is the printing of your name on the cover which is a very nice touch if you plan to give the planner as a gift. a plastic cover can also be purchased to protect your planner from bending or from getting dirty.

Thelazeco is a local artist in Singapore who has an adorable range of Custom Planner, Notebook, Stickers and Cards. I really like her adorable illustrations of animals and food items, they are well-drawn and amusing. Please lend your support to this home-based art business.






JL Heart Jade Earrings a symbol of a niece's love - Sweet bunny



Family is the one constant element in life- my dearest aunt has always been there for my family and me. She always brought so much love and laughter to our lives with her generous and loving ways. My late father had always spoken about his elder sister with so much admiration and respect. Ever since we were kids, my aunt often took the time to take my sister and me for an outing at a shopping mall to spend an afternoon with her. She would treat us to lunch and shower us with gifts. Never has she turned a listening ear or us away when we needed motherly advice. The greatest treat was listening to her stories about her work life and career. My aunt has truly inspired me to always better myself and to be strong in times of difficulty
 

How to show your appreciation to your Aunts- the most valuable thing you could give your relatives is your time and attention. Speaking of attention, try to remember what they said that they likes for my case it was my aunt mentioning that she loved jade. My sister and I decided to get a pair of Jade earrings for my aunt’s birthday.

 



Hubby and I purchased a pair of earrings for my sister for her birthday earlier this year and it so happens that my aunt and my birthdays both fall in the same month. I was having trouble selecting the perfect pair of earrings for my aunt until Hubby suggested I get the same design he chose for my sister making it a set of three pairs of matching earrings just in different colours. That was indeed a brilliant idea, a pair of jade earrings for the women in my family that I treasure.

I invited the owner of JL Heart, Juat Li to share about her store and what inspires her to create these lovely pieces of jewellery.

It’s not just jewellery, it’s life.

To me, jewellery is not just for making you look lovely. It’s a way for you to express yourself.

Many of us get jewellery to commemorate special moments in life. I’ve made jewellery for weddings, births, graduations, birthdays and so much more.

Every time we put on that particular piece of jewellery, it brings back the happy moments. And that is exactly why I’m hooked on JL Heart.


Whenever I make jewellery for you and hear about your life stories or see your lovely photos, it adds meaning to my work and fuels me much more than my corporate career.


Thank you, Eveclair, for giving me the chance to make these Swirling Leaves Jade Earrings for you, and I hope they get to go through life’s precious moments with you.

Thank you Juat Li for sharing, thank you for creating such lovely works of art that my family will always treasure.







Create a gift wrapping station for your home- Sweet bunny



In the centre of my living room, my interior designer Hosen installed a built-in cabinet during our BTO home renovation, it was meant for shoes but I did not like the idea of keeping shoes too close to our family altar out of respect. Thankfully, the shelves were adjustable and I rearranged it to create a space to store, the commonly used items my family often reach for, my bags and for as well as a gift-wrapping station.

messy cabinet  with wrapping paper and home supplies



Pegboard Alternative: using Ikea SVENSÅS Memo board - I had originally purchased two magnetic boards from Ikea for our study but never got to hang the boards up as I didn’t use the space that was meant to be my desk and so the boards just lay forgotten in our laundry yard for a couple of months. About the same time, the mess in my cabinet has been bugging me the clutter of wrapping paper and household accessories was just a hindrance of stuff toppling off the shelves at times and impossible to find what we needed. To resolve this issue I decided to put up the memo boards in my cabinet, amazingly it sucks well with Bostik Original Blu-Tack, I had always preferred the original as it was always strong enough and can come off cleanly when required to. Magnetic boards make a great alternative to Pegboards because you don’t have to place items in a very fixed manner and magnetic boards can be placed almost anywhere without worrying that hooks and attachments fall off, magnets are really strong easily found and more affordable.

Daiso hack for hanging your wrapping paper - Most of the DIY solutions for hanging wrapping paper uses a curtain rod, which I initially wanted to do but I often switch up the way I organise my home and did not want any permanent fixtures. After much consideration and wondering around Daiso an idea struck me, two of the semi-round basket with thin magnet used together placed on their sides is able to hold on to the wrapping paper regardless of length.

reuse ribbons




Reusing gift bags, wrapping paper and ribbons- The holders are able to hold up about three wrapping papers together, which is sufficient for me, as I do not usually buy many sheets at a time, most of the ones I have were given to me as a freebie from stores. 

I used these holders on the right side up to store wrapping papers from gifts that I receive that are still in good condition to reuse for future events,I also use the holders for items that my household uses. 

I have the habit of keeping ribbons for products I purchased or received as gifts and store them in a sticking can case from Daiso, I believe you can find these in IKEA as well GRUNDTAL Container, stainless steel in a better quality form but for ribbons, I think the Daiso will Suffice.





giftwrapping station with daiso and ikea stuff



On the shelf, I used stackable containers from Daiso to keep greeting cards for all occasions and red packets for the lunar new year and stickers that I have collected over the years. Along with other commonly used items that my family always asked me for such as a nail clipper, which is impossible to keep in a bathroom due to Singapore’s humid climate where things can easily rust.
 

I was very satisfied with this arrangement because it saves my family time from sorting and searching for items that we need at a snap of the finger we can just get what we need and be on our way. As long as we have the discipline to keep the items in their proper “homes” we would always be able to find what we need when we need it.



Merry Christmas everyone and a blessed New year ahead! I hope my post will inspire you to create your very own gift-wrapping station.

 

An afternoon with the Chow Chows at Chow Cute Cafe - Sweet bunny

                                                

Throwback to Deepavali when it was a public holiday, dear and I made a date to go to Chow Cute Cafe together. It is unbelievable that we have not been out for a meal together since covid19 started and it felt refreshing to head to Seletar Air Base to get some fresh air and spend the day with adorable dogs. An advance booking has to be made on their website to avoid disappointment, so I booked an afternoon slot about a week before. 
                                    

Our journey to Seletar Air Base was just a bus ride away; we reached the area within 30 minutes. Making our way to the cafe from the bus stop was a breeze just a 10-minute walk. I really adore the quaint colonial houses in Seletar airbase makes one feel like you have entered another realm into the charming countryside.

I really liked the look of the exterior of the café; it had a very elegant feel to it. You may choose to have your meals al fresco on the lovely patio furniture or indoors. 

Cute Chow Chow from Chow cute cafe



Our experience at Chow Cute Café was an overall review - Greeting us at the front door was an adorable older brownish-black Chow Chow. It is no surprise because Chow Chow has a history of being guard dogs to livestock and homes, untrained Chow Chows tend to be more on the aloof side and aggressive with strangers and other dogs but I am glad to report that all the Chow Chows at Chow Cute Café are well trained and friendly. The younger pups tend to be more cheeky and playful while the older ones are calmer and mellow perfect for children because they would sit around and allow a child to pet them.

Brown Chow Chow



 I truly enjoy seeing that the dogs would light up with delight each time they spotted their trainers, this goes to show that the dogs are well treated by their owners and well taken care of. I do have my reservations when going to pet-themed attractions, I always keep an eye out how the animals are treated. We had an enjoyable quiet afternoon interacting with the dogs and stroking them, this is a rare treat, as we do not own any pets due to our busy work schedules. The cafe has a nice range of board games for a fun-filled afternoon, a very nice touch I must say for a relaxing afternoon.



                                                                                     
There are mixed reviews on google about the food at the café, the team at the café are a young group and are most helpful we were served dessert before the main course and drinks are expensive but considering the fact that you aren’t charged for playing with the dogs, it is well worth the cost. We did wait rather long for our meal but the fish was fresh and delicious.

Handmade beaded crystal necklace by Lilac Jewels - Sweet bunny



Youth entrepreneur- I got to know a very sweet girl via social media who runs Lilac Jewels. It has been a couple of months since we exchanged messages back and forth to get to know her business better. I just must say I am very impressed with the young lady who started her very own handmade jewellery business and even shares a tip or two with me from time to time on how to improve sales and better connect with your audience.

It was an honour to be her first customer; I purchased a customised crystal chip necklace from her, as I do not quite fancy the gold-coloured chain of the original design but glad customisation was available. I liked that there was a selection of mini crystals to choose from in different colours, the pastel stones went well with a silver chain and the workmanship is impressive. I really like the style of her dainty jewellery and would

Thoughtfully packaged jewellery- I love all the freebies that she packed in the tiny parcel she sent me an intricately made necklace, a ring and a couple of stickers with a thank you note. I could tell that a lot of consideration was made with the tiny tags she attached to each piece of jewellery carefully placed in a purple organza bag,

                           handmade necklace packaging 

I invited Lilac Jewels to guest post on my blog, do lend her your support.


I started my small business to make affordable yet nice jewellery for everyone. Jewellery should not just be for those who can afford to buy high-quality ones, leaving those who are not able to afford them buying the lower quality ones.

 Such as necklaces that tarnish easily or bracelets that break when worn. Thus, I set up Lilac Jewels. to make dainty and pretty jewellery, which everyone can afford. Since young, I have always liked crafting. Especially beading. 

I have also aspired to help the less fortunate. Thus, every 20% of my earnings will go to a charity organisation.
 Handmade items are way more significant than store-bought ones. 

Behind the scenes is a lowly paid worker struggling to make ends meet just putting the jewellery pieces together. However, small businesses make everything by hand. Even the cards they give out is designed by hand! Jewellery is not overpriced pieces of gold; jewellery is a piece of decoration, used to make someone happy and more confident.

Flotation Therapy at Palm Ave Float Club (Kampong Bugis) - Sweet bunny

                                         Palm Avenue Float Club Sign

I received a gift card from my sister for Christmas last year. It was for a 60-minute float at Palm Ave float club for my hubby and myself. We delayed our trip to the float club for quite a number of months due to covid-19 but finally decide to go down and utilised the facilities.

We took a cab down to Kallang River Side Park and what looked like an old building in the middle of nowhere was charming when we entered, we were a little lost but the kind restaurant staff from the Raw Kitchen Bar on the first floor guided us to which lift to take. When we reached the Float Club we were greeted by a scenic view of Kallang River Side Park, the sight of old banyan trees and tranquil waters from the window walls just gives you a sense of relaxation and peace.

Floatation Therapy Benefits- In a blissed-out state is attained during floatation therapy, which can improve mental clarity, creativity, and problem-solving abilities other benefits from deep relaxation is better to sleep and muscle repair. Epsom salt is used in the pod water the solution is beneficial for your body and mental health.

Things you have to note before going for Floatation Therapy- As much as possible you might want to refrain from shaving before heading down for a floatation therapy session as the saying goes adding salt to a wound, shaving might cause micro-cuts and it will really hurt once the saltwater seeps into a wound and sting. However, the club does provide you with packets of Vaseline which you can use to seal up any nicks, cuts, or wounds before soaking. Dyeing your hair before soaking is also not advised because the hair colour may run.
 
shower and shower facilities
The staff was very efficient and friendly and after checking in via safe entry, we were guided to our floatation rooms. The pods were huge! The staff showed me all the facilities in the room like the shower area and floats for the neck because during floating some may feel a straining their necks so the float was provided to ease the tension allowing you to fully relax. The water is deep enough to allow you to float but the depth is nothing to worry about for people like myself who aren’t good swimmers. There are earplugs available to prevent salt from entering your ears. There is also a button within the pod that you could press for assistance from the staff.

closed pod float therapy

open pod float therapy



I started my floating session with a shower before heading into the pod, it is important to cleanse yourself removing any oil from your hair and body, which might create a distracting bubbling sensation. I did not close my pod as I didn’t like the claustrophobic feeling small spaces give me and also for the reason that I was told that one of the hinges of the pod wasn’t working well. I did not want to risk being stuck in a pod of water.


There is relaxing music at the beginning and ambient lighting before it is lights out and the music stops allowing you to fully relax. To be honest I began my first couple of minutes playing with the water and just enjoying the fact that I could float. The warm water has a calming effect. I tried a few positions before I could really relax for the remainder of the hour. The music and lights turned on when the hour was up so I hopped out of the pod to get a good shower to remove all the salt off my body. The salt does crystalize once it dries so do make sure that you wash yourself thoroughly.

                                        float therapy



                                          
Hubby was in a separate room and did enjoy his float session, would we like to go back for another float? Most likely no, don’t get us wrong it was enjoyable but at a slightly pricy range of SGD$89.00 an hour for a single float but it makes a good gift idea for someone you know needs to relax and would enjoy this experience.

     

How I fixed my thinning hair, Ginvera Olive Oil For Hair Growth And Benefits - Sweet bunny

Earlier this year as I was seated at my desk a colleague mention to me that my hair parting was getting very thick with further observation I noticed while looking in the mirror at home that I had a bald spot right in the crown of my head. Was I balding, I asked myself with dismay?




Ginvera Olive Oil great for hair growth



Thinking back, I find it quite funny that it was what lead me to use olive oil in the first place it was not my hair I using it for it was my forehead. Cooking olive mixed with aloe vera all of all things, well at least it did smell good but I had an army of pimples the next day on my forehead…

After the whole charade with the cooking olive oil, I happen to be at Supermarket’s skincare section. There a place on the shelf within my arm’s reach was a bottle of Ginvera Bio-Pure Olive Oil 150ml. I thought to myself what the hell and grabbed a bottle to try my luck with reducing the lines on my forehead, the product did indicate that it could be used as make-up removed and cleans the skin without drying it out.


The oil in Ginvera Pure Olive Oil is formulated with pure, olives from Spain where the weather is the optimal climate for the growth of olives. The extra virgin oil is very nourishing and has an anti-ageing benefit to the skin. With a non-greasy formula, it is quickly absorbed by your hair and skin. It also works well as a makeup remover leaving the skin clean and moisturised.

Using Olive oil for hair growth and benefits – Ginvera Pure Olive Oil is also a natural conditioner that helps to promote healthier and stronger hair. Olive oil has anti-inflammatory properties contains a modest amount of vitamin k and e as well as antioxidants. It is said to prevent greying hair treat dry and dull hair and prevent split ends.

Effects of using olive oil on hair for a few weeks- After soaking my hair and scalp in olive oil once a week for a few minutes, I noticed that my hair started to grow back, my “bald patch” was smaller. It relieve my scalp from feeling itchy perhaps because my scalps was dry and needed the olive oil to revitalise its condition. The best part is I need not worry if any oil trickles onto my face as it can also be used as a makeup remover. I am glad to report there weren’t any pimples popping up on my face while using this product, phew.

                                 receding parting  hair and hari growing back


I am still amazed that such a simple and affordable product can be used in so many ways, I heard it can even be used as a massage oil as an emollient that prevents friction during massages while moisturising the skin. Some even use it on a baby’s skin. The Ginvera oil range also comes in many different formulas, pure olive oil, Lite Beauty, green tea, extra virgin oil, olive coconut oil, and olive argan oil. I can’t wait to try the other from the range of olive oils and reap the benefits from each of these specially formulated oils for glowing skin and healthy hair.

Tupperware still the best today- Sweet Bunny

When I was a child, my mother would take me to block parties organised by the community centre, at these events the aunties of the neighbourhood would sell Tupperware along with some tasty treats that they would bake or cook. My mother purchased a couple of food containers used them on many occasions. I will always hold such memories of my mother close to my heart as I only had about 13 years with her.

I never needed to buy my own kitchenware until I became a homeowner; I found myself needing proper, safe to use and lasting food containers. I have a cabinet in my kitchen where I store all my spices and ingredients. Many of the spices come in ready to use containers but only the salt and sugar come in plastic bags.

Storing salt and sugar-I recently purchased the Tupperware Umami Collection spice container 500ml to store my salt and sugar. , I really like the smart and intuitive design of this Tupperware store container. This spice container is airtight, the lid is easy to open and spill-proof keeping the contents fresher longer. I like my container to be clear as I can easily check at a glance the amount that is left when I prepare my grocery shopping list.

                                      
Umami Collection spice container with lavender plant



Spice spoon design –The Umami Collection spice container come with a spoon not just any spoon but one that would smartly fit at the upper part of a Tupperware, a spoon rest where the spoon’s feet cling to keeping it clean and easy to access. You wouldn’t need to use your fingers to dig out the spoon from the condiments making it more hygienic. The spoon also has double-sided measurements, perfect for cooking or baking reducing the need of retrieving another cutlery to get the measurement job done. It is also curved reaches into every corner of the container, from top to bottom - No waste!

The purple colour is vibrant are a treat for the eyes as it blends well in my blue-white kitchen well. I made a couple of labels from my brother label maker removing the hassle of guessing if it is salt or sugar. As I have four containers from the set, I used one for salt and the other three for brown and white sugar.

Unique Singapore Sticker - Fei Mao Liulian/ Fat Cat Durian | RussNing - Sweet bunny



I used to collect stickers back in Primary School. Would get angry when my younger sister traded my “pretty” stickers for "ugly” common ones. I just started using Tic ock lately and I love the exposure to many small businesses one that really caught my eye was Fei Mao LiuLian/Fat Cat Durian it somehow rekindled my love for stickers. As an adult stickers can be used to decorate almost anything, in my case I will be using them to different shade my mug from others in the office. Everyone is given the same corporate mug so adding an adorable sticker would help me different shade my mug from others.

Personally, I do like eating durians but I understand that they can be pungent to others, It is an occasional treat I indulge in.

Durian Stickers Illustrations – Never have I seen the king of fruits being depicted in such an adorable way, the owners of Fei Mao LiuLian/Fat Cat Durian are avid fans of the fruit and have a vast knowledge about the different types of Durian and share many fun facts on their Instagram and don’t get me started about the adorable character that they have come up with I found them very original and stunning.

I order 2 stickers from them and they have graciously given me an extra one. I am thrilled to have 3 out of 4 of the Fei Mao Sticker Design. I really like the yellow cat position in the Durian where the fruit should be its genius! I really like its Cheerful personality. It represents the Mao Shan Wang/ Cat On Mountain Top Durian a bittersweet cream durian that is sometimes used to make durian cakes. I like the quality of the stickers, semi-glossy and scratch proof. I also like the packaging as there is a story about each character and the thank you card was a lovely touch as well.

 I have started a page on my blog to help budding artists like Fei Mao LiuLian/Fat Cat Durian gain exposure so they can get the support to continue creating many more beautiful and creative illustrations. As in all my blogpost for artists, I invited them to write an introduction about themselves.

Our small art & craft business is called Fei Mao Liulian (肥猫榴莲). Fei Mao Liulian (FML) directly translates to "Fat Cat Durian" in mandarin.

As Durian lovers, we take inspiration from the different types of Durian to design our artwork. We are starting off with 3 main characters – Fei Mao (a chubby cat inspired by the Mao Shan Wang durian), Boo (a carefree panda inspired by the Green Bamboo durian) and Phoebe (a grumpy chick inspired by the Golden Phoenix durian).

We'll be launching a series of FML products in the near future as well as introduce new characters, so do keep a lookout for them 😀 👉🏻 Instagram 
Thank you for your kind support



I wish them every success do lend them your support and tell your family and friends about them.



Sponsored Review on PHS HAIRSCIENCE , Healthy Scalp Glamours Hair- Sweet Bunny



There is nothing more annoying than an itchy scalp not to forget to mention that constantly scratching your scalp will cause unwanted hair fall and dandruff. I have tried many shampoos and treatments but had no luck with finding remedies for my itchy scalp that was lasting.

PHS HAIRSCIENCE approached me. They gave me a series of question on what was troubling me and recommended me to try out the ADV Soothe Daily regime.

                                           PHS Hairscience ADV Soothe Daily regime

Next, I used the ADV Soothe Shampoo which is a correcting shampoo that focuses on correcting greying hair, dandruff, hair loss and sensitivity while protecting the scalp giving you the foundation for healthy hair.


 

The next step is to use the ADV Nutrition Conditioner, this conditioner consists of botanical stem cells to nourish the hair making it soft and tangle-free. Pat dry your hair after shampooing and apply the conditioner to damp hair avoiding the scalp and allow it to be absorbed into the hair for 1 to 2 minutes before washing it off.

MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream is newer better?- Sweet Bunny

Is newer always better, Not exactly when it came to the MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream SPF 30 for me.

 
MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream SPF 30

MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream SPF 30 before and after







I am a huge fan of MKUP products as the product works well with my sensitive skin. I wrote about the Real Complexion Cream about 4 years ago and still use it daily. I do not really like to use foundation because it stains clothes and I am usually in a rush to head out and prefer to speed up the makeup application or keep it to a minimum, it sometimes clogs the pores of my skin as well causing breakouts. Although the cream does not do all that the wacky ads from Taiwan say it is efficient enough and moisturises my face well.

Is the MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream SPF 30 a good sunblock- As I work on the sunnier side of the island of Singapore where the 9am sun is like 12pm sun needless to say it make me tanned easily? While using the cream it does help a little but not significantly, perhaps reapplication has to be done frequently as we have to factor in perspiration and if the cream dries out over several hours.



The texture of the MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream compared to the Real Complexion Cream – The new cream comes in a dark beige colour much different from the white colour of the real complexion cream. I do not like the texture of the cream as much because it is much thicker and sticky. In a way somewhat harder to blend into your skin. A small amount goes a long way, using too much gives off the ghostly white colour. It also felt a little cakey on my face and I did not like the hassle of trying to blend the cream to my face, I even tried using a beauty blender but I found using my fingers much quicker in the application. 
MKUP Super Hyaluronic Acid Real Complexion Cream SPF 30 texture and color




However, if you take the effort to test out the cream and proportion required for your face and neck and slowly work on blending in the cream it could work well as a makeup base. It does leave a nice shine on your face making your skin look radiant and moisturised. I would say this cream works better as a primer than on its own as a foundation.

The packaging is more or less the same as the first edition of consisting of a nice holographic box and a jar with a pump. I like the pump which makes the cream ooze out without a hitch. I also like the fact that no cream is wasted as I opened a bottle which I finished using and was surprised to find it completely empty. I suggest buying the smaller 10ml tube edition if you are testing out the cream as it would be a waste if the cream were not suitable for you, I do regret purchasing the 30ml version but will try my best to finish it.
