The title might sound like a horrid (or happy) mathematical equation back from your Secondary school days to haunt your behind. But I just wanted to share with you not one, but two awesome things that you absolutely need to know NOW.
A concept manicure + retail space that sells cute knick knack, notebooks, baubles and beautiful nail art. The store is split into three sections. The first area holds bags, notebooks, pouches, souvenirs. Expect Singlish notebooks, Terracotta Warriors by Justin Lee, By Invite Only, Nooka and Rememberings.
The second zone, which is the cashier station doubles as a coffee counter which serves up a mean cuppa Papa Palheta coffee.
The third and final area at the back of the shop is possibly the most gorgeous manicure space you’ll ever lay eyes on. With custom-made furniture, brass-finished faucets and OPI enamel, you’ll feel like you’ve died and gone to manicure heaven. Honest!
Sorry I didn’t take pictures of the manicure section of the space. Visit the space and check it out for yourself (:
And the second thing is Books & Beer.
>>> Books & Beer #7 <<<
on 11 March (Sunday), 3pm to 6pm.
41 Beach Road, Singapore 189680
Into it’s 7th edition, Books and Beer is a book swap with an ice-cold twist. Swap a book or two and mingle with the other fun people present over a cold one. It’s a fun and different way to spend a Sunday afternoon chilling and meeting new people. Bring a book to swap (and a friend, if you are shy). And I’ll probably see you there (: Hope to utilize their Books&Beer 10% off promo, make an appointment and get my nails done too. hehs!
And on a side note, when you visit Manicurious, be sure to check out eyewear brand – Waiting for the Sun. Hailing from France, these babies are the most precious things everr. Each pair is hand-carved from different types of wood, come in limited quantities and have a polished but raw finish with the wood grain exposed.
A pair would set you back about $300 but they are absolutely darling and not-so-secretly wish to get a pair for my birthday. Even though I’ve already bought myself a treat, should be saving money for New York and really only need for my friends to all chip in for the best birthday present EVER – a slightly more affordable trip to New York City, by contributing to the New York fund.
Lol. A part of me wishes designers would stop making such beautifully desirable things. But on the other hand, imagine how bland life would be without good design?
