As the holiday season draws near – neigh, it might already have begun for some of us – there’s one thing on everyone’s mind: What do we make for dinner? I scoured the web for some interesting, mouthwatering holiday recipes that are easy to follow. I also found some decor ideas, if you need some inspiration to make the place cosy. If you’re into sausage mini bites and roasted potatoes, read right ahead (hopefully not on an empty stomach).
If there’s one thing I currently cannot keep my eyes – and fingers – away from, it’s my phone. To be exact, it’s Instagram that I access through my screen. Now that I’m getting some break from work, I have my life back! And yes, who wouldn’t spend some time sifting through artfully curated and envy-inducing pictures? The answer is nobody.
Here are my picks for the 20 Instagram accounts to follow right now, especially if you’re bored with your current timeline and want something different. They’re arranged in alphabetical order below. Enjoy!

Aren’t you excited that it’s already November? I know I’ve been going on about how Christmas is coming but you see, Christmas is my favourite time of the year! My family doesn’t really celebrate it but it’s nice to not hear depressing stories on the news for once. And carols! Carols everywhere. Choirs of angels. People dressed as Santa, snowmen or elves, giving presents to little kids. Malls decked with decorations. And shops turn festive with deals.
If you’re in the midst of getting stockings filled, here are my current picks for gifting this season, mainly sourced out from the gifting sections of Nordstrom and Shopbop. And we’re only getting started!

Hello! I’m giving away a chic backpack from Maku Store Singapore today! According to a survey which I carried out previously, you guys chose either to win a handbag, clutch or a backpack. I trotted down to the store at Bugis Junction and selected this chic piece for today’s giveaway!
Not only that, but with this backpack, I’m also giving away products from beloved brands like Crabtree & Evelyn and Nails Inc.!

I miss Europe. A lot. If you do follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you’ve probably read about my wishes to return to France. So imagine my heart skipping a beat when I found this little nook by surprise when searching for a location for today’s outfit shoot! The weather was rainy to begin with, so I was all dressed up and all made up with just about nowhere to go (Do you ever get that?). Mr. Ratatouille and I decided to head out anyway for brunch, since we rarely get any alone time together.
Previously, in the first installment of this new series on the blog, I picked out some pieces from The Style Store and put them together, showcasing them as a potential part of your perfect office outfit. Today, I’m going to be sharing about my current obsession: skirts!
I love skirts. They’re feminine; come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and prints; and the men don’t get it. That makes it feel like they’re exclusive! Some women out there aren’t the skirt type of girl and that’s perfectly OK. Not everyone’s a shorts type of person, or a tank top kind of person either. But me? I cannot survive without them.
Of course it’s definitely more convenient to be in pants because you can take bigger strides or run after the bus, but skirts add this certain ladylike feel to your entire look. Pair them with heels, no matter how high (or not), and nobody would ask you to help lift that box.
Today I’m going to show you some common styles that suit the workplace. Most of them are from Zalora, where you can actually get many things at an affordable price (and reliable shipping). Do check out their online fashion magazine in Singapore too, where you can get some ideas about what to match your skirts with.
The Classic Pencil Skirt
Pencil skirts are a great way to add formality to your look. They go well with blazers and any tops you might have for the office, even frilly ones. Pencil skirts tell others you mean business. They show others that you’re confident enough to be wearing them despite knowing how challenging they can be, especially since they do restrict some form of motion. For those of you who work hard to remain in shape, pencil skirts also let others know (and remind yourself) that you’ve got your life in order – even if you really are in fact having a little break down. The best time to wear them are when you have to make a presentation to a group of people, though really, I wear them almost every day.
