This Saturday promises to be a barrel of fun for KL-ites as 3 markets (Chic POP Street Market, Crafty Art Market & Bettr Weekends Market) are merged into one massive shopping-fest with 100 booths selling everything from stylish clothes & handcrafted knick-knacks to organic bread. And to make things even more awesome, there’s a Swap Party where you can shop without spending a cent & of course, the Craft Party yours truly is pulling together. Wheeeee!
So, I’ll be seeing you this Saturday? ;)

This has got to be the cutest album I’ve laid my ears on in a good long while. As described by Wikipedia: “Lullatone is a popular music group based in Nagoya, Japan, whose music is characterized by an innocent, child-like quality and spare, lo-fi sounds. Although the group refers to their style of music as "pajama-pop", it is commonly included in such musical subgenres as Twee pop, Indie pop and Electronica. It draws influence from such diverse sources as Bossa Nova, French pop music of the 1960s, children's songs and Musique concrète.”
From what I’ve heard so far, it’s all instrumental but so delightful that I think this music would be lovely playing in the background while crafting. With tracks titled “finding a leaf in your girlfriend's hair” & “riding a bike down a big hill and taking your feet off of the pedals” how can you not be delighted? Buy yourself a copy of their latest album “Soundtracks For Everyday Adventures” here.

I started cooking regularly (like 3 - 4 times a week) & have lots of little plastic packets of various spices lying around. This simple yet handy DIY chalkboard storage jars would be perfect for my purposes & I thought I’d share with you lovely folks as you can use them not only for spices & tea as pictured above but candy, cookies & even non-edible items like hairclips. Just label with chalk & if you want to change the contents, just wipe the old written label away! Handy.

What does the video above remind you of? A certain popular movie starring Audrey Hepburn that hordes of ladies around the world adore? You guessed it! This short film by Kinga Burza for Kate Spade New York was inspired by Breakfast At Tiffany’s, one of my favorite movies of all time! It’s seriously cute, so have a looksee.
this is the story of a charming girl
she laughs out loud, sings off key and believes in taking chances
she is quick and curious and playful and strong
she lets her imagination run away with her
she has never been one to stick to convention
she is fond of daydreams that take her places
she can order a cocktail in six different languages
she feels that understated is overrated
