All in a day's work

It's Shop Update Tuesday again!
Well to be honest, it's not something I set out to do right from the start, adding new stuff to the shoppe on tuesdays that is. It just sort of fell into place as I could work in small pockets of time here and there during the week, then take photos and edit them over the weekend. I would aim to put them in the shop on a Monday, fail miserably, and end up listing them on the Tuesday instead. Though sometimes I get more time to work than other days or have one of those productive days, I don't like to list singular items daily as it takes loads of time to just put online. I usually allocate a day a week to take all the photos and another day to work on the computer , which means I tend to update only once a week and usually in batches. But it frees up the rest of the week for me to work creatively! :)

Work aside....
Nathan looked so preppy cute in his little sweater vest that we had to take some family photos after service on Sunday! Psst... daddy was the one who dressed ALL of us that day so we were quite matchy matchy haha...

On the same day was our girls' farewell party for our dear friend Yilin who'll be married off to the States in 2 weeks. Thanks to Val's impeccable organisation skills, the bride-to-be was treated to a surprise lunch at the Forlino which serves excellent Italian with a fantastic view of the Merlion . We had a gregarious funny server who mistook our little celebration for a birthday haha, and Yilin had a complimentary slice of chocolate ganache whose calories she compelled the rest of us to share.

Our mysterious after-lunch activity was a decadent but so heavenly fun spa party at The Retreat, Changi Village Hotel. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this was a wonderful respite to end the day with! We had our own whirlpool jacuzzi (yes 6 of us could fit in it!) with complimentary chocolate fondue, followed by their welcome foot soak and an hour long swedish massage each. We were soooo pampered! Sadly it took for one of us to leave before us busy lot could get together for a yummy day like this.
Bye bye Yilin! We'll miss you!
