On the hunt for unique and reasonably priced sunglasses

It was time to retire our beloved speckies from MANGO, bought at a sale and which lasted all of 2 years (not too bad for a high street label). We were on a hunt and stumbled upon Lespecs, a quirky Australian brand at DH Sunglasses at Haji Lane. Prices from SGD69 though the Henry Holland range's a bit pricier. Not too bad, it offers a respite from super brands at reasonable prices. Have a look and decide for yourself. Alternatively check out Anthropology at Holland Village, 27, Lorong Mambong, tel: +65 6463733.

Whoever said cross stitch is for mumsy folks?

Once upon a time, Humptydump used to spend days working wee hours into the night making Precious Moments cross-stitch, sacrificing precious pocket money to buy countless DMC thread and counting squares from the patterns. After a while, we lost interest as there was nothing else we could do except stare at the finished product on a wall mounted frame. And then we discovered that cross stitch can be practical and modern too! Here's our inspiration for the upcoming flea market in August.

Hair Accessories for girls with short hair like us! Woots

Growing out our hair and stuck at a stage between tearing it all out, giving it up and shearing it again or bearing with it and accessorise to distract. Some inspiration.
