If it’s a new business, product, or service for mamas and kids in Singapore, we want to tell you about it!
In this month’s edition of What’s New Mama, get psyched for a new multi-label store of independent designers and brands, a new eco-friendly furniture paint that’s also child safe, an event planner than can truly do it all (from birthdays to bachelorettes!), interesting yet incredibly tasteful adult toys to spice up the bedroom scene, and sustainable groceries delivered straight to your doorstep – click through our gallery for more, mama!
Still haven’t found the perfect one-stop shop that caters to our humid climate and has a collection of exclusive, one-off finds, mama? TheAC (short for Attaby Collective) is a boutique department store by a collective of independent designers and brands, carrying everything from bags to womenswear, art, flowers and furniture with the Singaporean lifestyle in mind. Plus, the reps and designers of these brands (many of them mamapreneurs!) work in the boutique, giving you the chance to speak face-to-face when you shop.
Frenchic Furniture Paint® is an all-natural, environmentally-friendly chalk and mineral furniture paint that has great coverage, is safe and easy to use on almost any surface (you can even use it in nurseries and on toys!). It comes in 45 stunning colours (featured here is ‘Sweetheart’), with no added VOC’s or solvents. What’s more, Frenchic paint has passed rigorous tests and trials to be certified EN:71-3, which means it’s child safe! Check them out for a beautiful range of paints, brushes, stencils, finishes and waxes.
