Gone are the days of boring and cheesy wedding favours. These days, an increasing number of couples are opting for more unique ways to thank their guests for attending their weddings.
Whenever we are engaged to style a wedding, we always take the time to understand our clients’ personalities and lifestyles. This enables us to come up with ideas and themes that feel more personal and intimate so that the entire wedding experience is seamless… yes, right down to the wedding favours!
It is so important for wedding favours to feel well thought-out and not just gifts that are obligatory. Whilst browsing Pinterest, as we normally do, we stumbled upon really awesome ideas that will enhance the entire wedding experience and make the guests feel super cherished and appreciated.
Did any of the wedding favours catch your eye?
With Love, Min+Jia.
Sometimes when you are feeling tired and bored, the only thing that can perk up your day is by looking at adorable animal photos! We love scrolling through Pinterest and Instagram to look at all the animal posts - we find it really relaxing and a great way to unwind after a long long day of work.
If you have been feeling blue since the start of the week, here are some super cute images to cheer you up!
With Love, Min+Jia.
The new week has barely started, but for us, the previous week hasn't even ended. A studio project was extended into the whole weekend by our client and without a break in sight, we are starting to feel fatigue creeping up on us!
Whenever we have tiny spare pockets of time on our hands, we find ourselves idly browsing through travel pictures on Pinterest. In between moments of chaos, these pins gently guides us into a soothing and relaxing state of wanderlust. If only we could drop everything and just leap straight into the pictures!
Where would you like to go next?
With Love, Min+Jia.
It is true. Age-related responsibilities are catching up on us, albeit the reluctance on our part. Unknowingly, we have whizzed past x number of years and have reached the next phase of our lives - we are buying our first homes (no, not together). It is crazy to say the least!
Everyone enjoys a well-thought-out and effortlessly styled home. To design our first homes are an arduous task that may just be well worth the effort when our plans on paper finally comes to fruition. But, where do we even begin to plan? Fortunately for us in this day and age, the start of every good plan begins on Pinterest! In the many months ahead, you can expect more interior designing and home styling Pinspirations, aside from the usual allure of other exciting Pinterest pins. Are you with us?
In today's post, we celebrate the beauty of some functional, economical and whimsical gallery and feature walls for just about any spot in homes and offices. Wall art is not restricted and limited to expensive art, paintings and framed photographs alone. Sometimes, the answer to owning affordable art is to think out of the box.
We hope you will be inspired!
Min: Use geometric shaped shelves to create a subtle wall art that boasts of functionality and design.
Min: A lace doily gallery wall can add a delicate and romantic touch to a shabby chic or Bohemian styled room.
Min: To evoke a stress-free room, place draping plants against the wall to create an inexpensive and unique natural wall art installation.
Jia: Printed wall murals in gorgeous calming hues are a great way to add a dose of dreaminess and whimsy to a bedroom.
Jia: Ceramic wall plates in shiny coats of subdued colours are a very chic and modern way of decorating a plain wall.
Jia: Versatile, affordable and readily available in a million and one designs, washi tapes can effortlessly turn a plain wall into a focal wall with just a little bit of imagination.
Are you inspired yet? Which of these gorgeous ideas will you include for your home or office? Drop us a note to share with us! :)
With love, Min+Jia.

Hi, my name is Min and I think I am slightly obsessed with food.
For as long as I can remember, I have always loved food. My closer circle of friends know that nothing excites me more than thinking and planning my next meals. Please don’t judge me or my life goals. You see, my grumpiness and grouchiness often stems from the fact that I have yet to have my basic needs met. I hate it when I am either starving or sleepy. I won't hide the fact that I once drove my colleagues up the wall when I did a juice cleanse. They hatched a plan to replace all my green juice bottles with fries, chips and rice in hopes of getting rid of the hangry - hungry and angry - monster in me.
I often wonder what will become of me if I lose the ability to eat or lose all access to food. Jia can testify that I used to carry a small container of Honey Stars cereal in my bag. I need a backup plan cause being hungry is never, ever part of the plan. And just to make sure that we are clear on food insecurities, I have a head of fresh broccoli in my bag as I write this post… Well, it brings much needed comfort to know that I have free access to food whenever I need it. Yes, I am obsessed with food and this is why November's favourite pins are dedicated to food. Because, why not? Food makes the world go round! Pun intended.
Onsen Tamago with Rice
Min: Oh, what I would give to indulge in a bowl of rice right now. I often say I can easily eat several bowls of rice. And now, I am ashamed to admit that I am not sure I can actually eat it without allowing the guilt to get to me before the fat rolls grows on me. What did rice do to deserve so much hate from the world of strict diets? Surely a bowl of rice can’t cause that much harm right? My dad loves rice and he often pairs white rice with a drizzle of dark soy sauce and top off the salty goodness with a perfectly fried egg. Yum! So, as a huge fan of rice, I say we eat rice for every meal. After all, rice is life.
