  • dUCk in London

    proudduck.com 10 Mar '17, 7am

    Overall, we had 43 interested buyers for dUCk, each representing either a multilabel store or an e-commerce website and what’s interesting was that they came from different countries. I told my team don’t rush into anything yet, just research each one a bit more to see if they’re suit...

    Is abolition "biblical"?

    rachelheldevans.com 10 Mar '17, 2am

    "On the eve of the Civil War, interpretations of the Bible that made the most sense to the broadest public were those that incorporated the defining experiences of America into the hermeneutics used for interpreting what the infallible text actually meant. In this effort, those who li...

    Explorer Kids Indoor Playground Review

    hollyjean.sg 09 Mar '17, 10am

    This is our first review of an indoor playground. Decided to try out Explorer Kids (we went to Ang Mo Kio hub but there's one at Down Town East too) because their rates for babies and toddlers is much lower than other play gyms/ indoor playgrounds. Just $5 for under 3 year olds (and 1...

    proudduck.com 09 Mar '17, 12am

    Dean is away on a business trip and as usual, I’ll be really down. When we are apart, I realise how much I love him and I think sometimes space is really good to rekindle the love especially when you even work together! So I’ll write an emo post about him then hehe. Nowadays, he gets ...

    Just 1 Day! Nature’s Farm Supplements At An Incredible $3.80 ONLY! |

    When I first found out that Nature’s Farm was celebrating International Women’s Day (8th March) today with a special 1-day-only offer on their supplements – pay just $3.80 PER BOTTLE – I found it a bitter pill to swallow. I’d just bought a batch of supplements from them, before the ne...

  • The Fine Art of Holding Your Tongue

    crystalstine.me 07 Mar '17, 5pm

    I was tempted. Very, very tempted. The book image popped up on my screen again as I scrolled through social media and I wanted so desperately to tell everyone what I thought about it. Share my side of the story and get people to understand how hurt I was about it all. Then there was t...

    Topshop Australia Site is Finally Here

    karencheng.com.au 07 Mar '17, 7am

    When I was in London for 4 weeks, I did a lot of shopping, browsing and trying on clothes for fun. I hardly get to do that back at home! I went to lots of high-end designer shops, and we must have ducked into a zillion H&M, Zara, Uniqlo and Topshop stores too. While I’m not a big fan ...

    As a Korean-American industrial designer who is almost the same age and having also had a (hapa!) baby this year, I feel like we are leading parallel lives! I've been following you and your tutorials since 2012 and have loved following your journey. Loving the new mama updates, the Ar...

    Although I’m working furiously to finish Book #4, I’ve made some time this month to head to the East Coast for events in Haddonfield, New Jersey, and Greenwich Connecticut. This weekend, March 10-11, I’ll be speaking (along with Tony Campolo) at Lutheran Church of Our Savior in Haddon...

  • Finished Reading List for 2016

    karencheng.com.au 06 Mar '17, 5am

    Just after Christmas last year, I finally finished the book that I had been stuck on for 5 months – The Name of The Rose by Umberto Eco. Haha I’m not sure if it was completely worth it, because while it was lovely and fascinating in parts, it was pretty hard work to get though it. But...

    proudduck.com 04 Mar '17, 1am

    So I’m going into the big 3-0 in a couple of years and already getting many of those “Aiya you better make sure you take care of your skin ah later all sag down” comments from Aunties from the Wrinkles Haters club. Honestly, I do feel my body is a little sluggish now… is this what get...

  • Calling Your Reps and Planting Onions: A Plan for Faithful Resistance

    rachelheldevans.com 02 Mar '17, 8pm

    That said, we shouldn’t avoid talking about injustice because we’re afraid of making things uncomfortable or offending someone. Having lived down South my whole life I know exactly what it feels like to smile through racism and xenophobia in order to maintain that false, sticky-sweet ...

    proudduck.com 02 Mar '17, 1pm

    Dean said no to her and asked her to sleep. That’s when she started kicking. And Dean had had enough. He raised his voice telling her to stop it and that riled her up even more. Dean said he would walk out of the room if she didn’t stop crying and kicking. She didn’t stop, so to show ...

    While I was in London and Paris, I had my heart set on buying a new black bag, in a bucket style. I did lots of window shopping and visited lots of luxury stores, but in the end I bought online because of Shopbop’s Go Big Sale (which is on until 4 March). I had my eye on this gorgeous...

  • Best Faith-Themed Reads For Summer 2016

    rachelheldevans.com 01 Mar '17, 8pm

    I’ve long enjoyed Jonathan Martin’s perspective on faith and life, but How To Survive A Shipwreck caught me off guard with its remarkable wisdom and beauty. This is such a poetic and profound book. Drawing from the rich imagery of Scripture and speaking transparently from his own expe...

    (Photo: Me with my new Reid Women’s Urban X1 , a hybrid bike from Reid Cycles) 5 years ago, I was an avid cyclist. I had an ultra-lightweight road bike, the whole cycling kit, the lycra outfit and I used to go on 80km – 100km bike rides once a week. I really loved it and I was super-d...

    rachelheldevans.com 01 Mar '17, 2pm

    “Planting onions” has come to signify for me the importance of remaining committed to those slow-growing, long-term investments in my family, my community, and the world, no matter what happens over the next four years. Right now it may seem like an afternoon of changing diapers and w...

    When she was younger and I was less experienced about managing constipation, Myla Rae has had some horrifically hard poops to pass... the kind that scared me. Thankfully, we have never had a bleed or tear! Though... I've heard that is not uncommon as quite a few of my friend's have ha...

    “Ms. Crystal? Will you write a blog post about us?” I smiled and said I would. I’d spent the day guest teaching in my sister’s 6th-grade writing classes and knew before they’d asked that I would, indeed, share about the experience. The looks on their faces as they walked in the room a...

    Sometimes all you need is one beautiful top to make yourself realise that you probably shouldn’t have blown your last month’s fashion budget on cheaper, trendy tops – oops! Over the past few years, I’ve tried to be a bit more considerate about what I buy. I’m trying to stick to a few ...

    Other things you might want to consider “giving up”: social media, cynicism (replace with wonder, compassion, and hope), perfectionism, legalism, TV, sugar, reading authors and bloggers who tend to look and think like you, comparison, etc. One fast that has crossed my mind this week i...
