Another gem I uncovered while cleaning up were my 2 primary school sticker books! We used to trade stickers, save up for them, get jealous of girls who had the best and most stickers. Every sticker was a commodity, even free ones with cereal:
And the shiny, furry ones, where the SandyLion brand was the most coveted:
I wasn’t obsessed with trolls at all:
And to end it all off, cute kitty cats in the softest setting:
I had to do a quick pack up of my room in Singapore before flying back to Pittsburgh, and I managed to dig up some of my childhood collections and I just had to share them!
Did you own any of these when you were a kid? These are collections I’ll probably never bear to get rid of. What did you collect when you were a kid?

My sister’s good friend Shenn recently opened a new cafe and vintage furniture shop in Bukit Timah, called Carpenter and Cook. So my sister brought us there for a visit and it was a really really nice place! It was packed that weekend, as it was their 2nd week open and they had quite a bit of press about them so far.
Carpenter and Cook is not just a cafe, they also sell vintage furniture and do party planning! The place is decorated with vintage furniture that’s for sale, and the place is packed with lovely pieces and details all over:
We ordered a bunch of pastries from their display, and they were all very yummy! Dylan attacked the strawberry tart while we had the savoury Olive and Sundried Tomato Brioche:
The passionfruit tart was one of everyone’s favourite and we all rounded it off refreshing lemonades. Will definitely be heading back if we ever get the car!
After the mini meal, we decided to hope by Jiaqi’s Uncle’s shop Nylon Coffee Roasters to see it and have a cup of coffee. We’re not big coffee drinkers, but it tasted great, they have a great set up going on down in Everton Park, a really cosy place to have a coffee and have a chat with the owners.
It was a great day visiting 2 lovely new places to chill out and have a drink or some yummy pastries. Hope we can head back soon!

I’ve never been a big fan of Coach, but I’ve been a fan of the blog blushing ambition for a while now, and her photos. In many of her photos, shes carrying a sling coach bag, which I assumed it was vintage. When I was in USA and on etsy, I always keep a look out for these vintage coach sling bags, but the quality/price/colour is never a perfect fit (ie. good quality but high price and non ideal colour).
However, I started beginning to notice that this range of bag was called the Coach Willis Bag, so it made it easier to search, but I also found out that Coach has made a collection called Coach Classics, remaking and reissuing all the classic bags of yesteryear. And I would actually be happy to carry most of the leather bags on this page.
Best of all, they remade the Willis, and I ordered it almost immediately, and of course in British Tan. Yum! Best of both worlds, a vintage remake with all the colours available at a good price as well. I actually love a lot of the other remakes as well and would love to get my hands on them, but the Willis will do for now! Even though I’ve a bit slow on the curve, I just had to blog about these great vintage remakes Coach was doing, as you may not see these beauties for a long time after this season’s over.

PicnicSunday Vintage had it’s virgin outing to a flea market recently!
We had such a great time meeting previous customers and new customers! Loved it, loved it, loved it! I think i scared my first customer a bit with my excitement haha.
Sarah’s Loft had a booth there that day, and I said hi and got a bunch of of her beautiful cupcakes. They were rich and delicious! Yumyum.
I was so happy my nephew Dylan and my bro-in-law dropped by. It was so spacious and he had a whale of a time running around the flea looking at everything and anything! He even found me the Finders Keepers prize! He even joined in MessyMsxi’s Breakfast Barter, can anyone guess what he drew?
It was a great day, and time flew by really fast. I’m hoping to attend the next one, for sure!
I recently discovered this great street snaps blog, based in New York and San Fran, and that means tons of people decked out in vintage. And going through it, I found so many great examples on how to wear certain vintage pieces, here are some of my favourites:
Vintage blouses have great versatility! Tuck it into some shorts or pants, or layer it with a cardi, to contrast the blouse or the collar. In Singapore, I love wearing vintage blouses with some denim shorts and its great for weekends.
I love these 2 looks, so so simple and classic. Their shoes just complete their simple looks. Pair vintage shoes with vintage dresses and a simple blouse and pants and it looks great!
And of course the vintage dress! It’s the simplest statement piece, just accessorise with a belt, a great bag, or with a denim jacket as pictured. Vintage dresses can give you a great overall look and stand out from the crowd.
