Glamorous Giving in Colour

Image: Risaia Shop

In just a few years, Glamorous Giving has become one of Singapore's most noteworthy shopping events. A 2-day pop-up shopping event where you can shop the most covetable fashion to the latest homewares and gift ideas. What's more is that each edition of this fashion and homewares clearance sale supports the Singapore Committee for UN Women. While the reasons to shop are quite obvious, this edition (Feb 21-22) I am looking forward to seeing the array of brands; the biggest line up this bi-annual event has ever presented. I have chosen a few of my favourite products below - ones which grabbed my attention due to their beautiful colours.

1

Stylish fashion at reduced prices

Glamorous Giving provides a beautiful edit of fashion, accessories and jewellery brands. A great variety of what’s trending in Singapore, at highly reduced prices. Whether you are looking for one piece or you want to overhaul your wardrobe, this event will help you get your shop on.

2

Gorgeous homewares and gift ideas galore

For anyone looking for a home refresh, a day shopping at Glamorous Giving will help you do just that. This event will be filled with a careful curation of homewares perfect for the tropics. And on the subject of homewares, why not stock up on gifts for the year so you can have a beautiful present drawer ready to go to whenever needed.

'Tis the season for red: Valentine's Day and Luna New Year. February is certainly the month to add a splash of red to your wardrobe and home. Celebrate the Luna New Year with subtle accents of the colour of love. Think a romantic touch rather than head-to-toe, and there always room for a little bling.

Golden Hour

I have always loved gold. From a young age, I remember loving anything gold. My father's gilded mirrors, the rim on our dinner set, the face of my first watch, and my grandmother's wedding band, are just some of my earliest and lasting impressions of gold. Gold to me is timeless, trendless and always in style. A touch of gold can always brings an element of glamour, whether it be an outfit or an interior. Too much can easily become tacky, so beware. When paired with white, neutrals and the details of a Parisian interior, like this design by Gilles et Boissier, it's ever so striking.

Oh Orangery

These long summer days Down Under have me potting in the garden for hours on end. I love summer gardening. I actually love being in the garden all year round. My dream to one day have an "indoor garden" is real. An orangery, conservatory or greenhouse like Jackum Brown, where I could potter all year around. Here are 12 of my favourite finds for this month. All inspired by long summer days and pottering in my imaginary orangery.

Australia Day: To read, Dorothea Mackellar’s ‘My Country’

The iconic poem 'My Country' was written in 1904 by poet and author Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968) at the age of 19 while homesick in the United Kingdom. While Dorothea was born and raised in Sydney's Point Piper, she spent much time at her family properties in regional NSW - Gunnedah and a property (Torryburn) in the Hunter Region. Her time spent on the land was undoubtedly the inspiration for her writing, and 'My Country' is believed to have been inspired by witnessing the breaking of a drought when she was at Torryburn. 'My Country' has gone on be one of Australia's most quoted and loved poems, inspiring many. Convict Bags is an Australian brand to have taken more than just inspiration from the poem, the lining features a woven snippet of the My Country verse - by arrangement with the Licensor, The Dorothea Mackellar Estate, c/- Curtis Brown (Aust) Pty Ltd.

‘My Country’

The love of field and coppice,
Of green and shaded lanes.
Of ordered woods and gardens
Is running in your veins,
Strong love of grey-blue distance
Brown streams and soft dim skies
I know but cannot share it,
My love is otherwise.

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!

A stark white ring-barked forest
All tragic to the moon,
The sapphire-misted mountains,
The hot gold hush of noon.
Green tangle of the brushes,
Where lithe lianas coil,
And orchids deck the tree-tops
And ferns the warm dark soil.

Core of my heart, my country!
Her pitiless blue sky,
When sick at heart, around us,
We see the cattle die –
But then the grey clouds gather,
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army,
The steady, soaking rain.

Core of my heart, my country!
Land of the Rainbow Gold,
For flood and fire and famine,
She pays us back threefold –
Over the thirsty paddocks,
Watch, after many days,
The filmy veil of greenness
That thickens as we gaze.

An opal-hearted country,
A wilful, lavish land –
All you who have not loved her,
You will not understand –
Though earth holds many splendours,
Wherever I may die,
I know to what brown country
My homing thoughts will fly.

Dorothea Mackeller
