Jack Spade Lochcarron Collection

LOCHCARRON "A small collection of bags and small goods created utilizing a wool tartan from Lochcarron of Scotland. The angus tartan from Lochcarron is woven in Selkirk in the heart of the Scottish borders. The traditional heavy weight worsted wool has been treated to repel water and resist stains. All styles are detailed with chocolate brown leather trim and custom diecast hardware. Lined with a navy blue ripstop." - Jack Spade

Imagine my excitement when I found out Jack Spade has a new collection. Being a big fan, I know I have to see these items in person. But the problem is, is Jack Spade available in Singapore?

The collection consists of a messenger bag, tote bag, laptop envelope, and more. Check out Blackbird for a more detailed look at the goods.

Bright and sunshine-y in Chicago

This beautiful house is owned by photographer Janet Moran. The place gets an amazing amount of natural sunlight and they also have an amazing chair collection. I can't believe they found the Eames rocker in the trash and the Saarinen table at the Salvation Army. What luck! For more photos and the complete article, head on over to

Wandering around.

Started my day by going to the Red Dot Design Museum. I love the building since it's an artwork in itself. An old, colonial style building painted red that houses the museum, cafes and restaurants, and offices. Wouldn't mind working there since the neighborhood is quite charming as well.

After that, I decided to go to Ann Siang Road to check out the boutiques and quaint shop houses. Made a few wrong turns here and there but then I realized getting lost isn't so bad. You end up discovering nice little alleyways.

Checked out the new location of Books Actually and dropped by Front Row. A.P.C. and Eley Kishimoto clothes and accessories were on sale but I didn't buy anything. Shopping wasn't in the agenda. It was nice going through the racks of clothing though, especially since I had all the time in the world.

It started to rain really hard when I got out of Front Row and silly old me forgot to bring an umbrella. Oh well.

Don't be fooled by the shabby looking exteriors. Inside those shop houses are Scandinavian furniture and clothing stores, a Fred Perry boutique, and various design studios.

The rains started to calm down after a few minutes and I retraced my steps back to where I started. I stopped by a park bench for a while to rest my legs since I was standing the whole time I waited for the rain to stop. After that, I took the subway and met my brother for dinner.

What happens naturally.

I believe I have an unhealthy obsession with Muji. Earlier today, I passed by the store to just "look around" and eventually went out with a couple of things. Found a couple of ads on YouTube a while ago and they're very nice. Simple and effective.

Too funny!

White is the way to go.

Decided to go with a very clean look for my room for an uncluttered and airy feel. Everytime I go to my room, I feel comfortable and relaxed and that's exactly how I want it to be. It's still a work in progress (believe it or not) but I'm happy with how it's turning out.

Here are a couple of images from the Muji website for inspiration:

As you can see I am slowly getting settled in. That's an Ikea 2009 catalog on the lower right corner of my desk. Will fix this new room soon. Until then, have a great weekend everyone.

I've been a bit busy the past few days. Getting ready for the next big step in my life.
Will be back in a couple of days. Wish me luck.

Japan = Perfect?

Japan. A place where kitchens are always cozy, the lighting always perfect, and the food always beautifully styled. Is it even real? Almost all Japanese blogs that I go to reflect the same image. Here's an example and check it out for yourselves: Rurulife

Opening Ceremony

I love, love, love Opening Ceremony. That's all I have to say about that.
