It is summer time for most countries in the world and in Singapore, every day is a summer day. It is hot all year round. Living near the equator means we get tons of sunshine and rain, with temperatures ranging from 27 degree celsius to a steaming 34 degree celsius on extreme days. Global warming is real and we are feeling it! I need a glass of lemonade now!
Last summer, I did a Hot Hue post on Sunshine Yellow and this summer is no different. I am attracted to everything yellow all over again! It could be the intense heat that is drawing my attention to yellow. Buttercup is a lovely shade of yellow though it is no where as loud as sunshine yellow. Don't you just love how sweet sounding the name is? Also, buttercup is one of this year's Pantone colours!
I wish I was by the pool now, with a Piña Colada in one hand and a book in the other. Ahh... that sounds like a fantastic life!
1 // Isota Piccola Wristlet
I am not a fan of wristlets but this just stole my heart! If you are not crazy about yellow, there are many other colours to choose from. The all white bag is absolutely gorgeous too! If you're a fan of having matchy items in your handbag, you'll be pleased to know that this wristlet comes with a matching hobo bag!
2 // Parmesan Garlic Grilled Corn
Corn is my all time favourite vegetable/fruit and I can't get enough of it. This dish sounds extremely decadent on a hot sunny day and all I want to do now is to sink my teeth into it. Grated parmesan, crushed garlic, juicy corn on the cob fresh off the grill. Not forgetting a generous squeeze of lime. Mmm, my kitchen will smell so good!
3 // Something Bleu Bow-Topped Slingback Heels
Slingback heels are an absolute delight to my feet because I find them so comfortable! I have awkward feet and slingbacks are my go-to heels. This pair of heels is so popular that all sizes have been completely wiped out. Someone, please bring them back to the store for me!
4 // Loewe Elephant Purse
This may be a men's purse but I can't get over how cute it is! Just look at the elephant's beady eyes! Looking at this purse reminds me of towel origamis that I often see at hotels and resorts. I am pretty sure this will be a cute addition to any quirky purse collection!
5 // Vintage Salt and Pepper Shakers
I have a friend who collects salt and pepper shakers, so I am always on the lookout for cute and creative shakers for her. This pair of shakers will definitely add a pop of colour and sunshine to any dining table, and I just love the details on the shakers! Look at the juicy pulp!
6 // Pineapple Cup Craft
When the heat is melting away every bit of my sanity, all I want is an ice cold drink. Preferably served in a nice looking cup/glass/mug. This cup craft is so easy to put together and I feel refreshed just by looking at it! I am going to hunt for yellow paper cups now.
7 // Blue Wooden Table and a Bowl Lemons
This is supposed to be a recipe for Lemon Fritter-sticks and Nutmeg Pudding, but I just can't stop staring at the colours in this picture. I'm loving the colour contrast between the dark blue table top and bright lemons. What a simple and stunning shot!
8 // Hand Painted Yellow Poppy Scarf
Shawls and scarfs are perfect for Singapore's climate. Sometimes it gets too chilly after a heavy rain, and often, it gets too hot. I like scarfs because it adds depth to my outfits and keeps me warm or cool, depending on how I wrap it around my neck. I especially love how cheery the yellow is on this scarf!
How will you add a pop of buttercup and sunshine to your life? :)
