The Magic Coin Purse is a 4-in-1 activity book which brings together a story, crafts, doodles and colouring all in one! Featuring the cross-stitch art of the elder ladies of the Hmong tribe, each book comes with a cross-stitch starter kit to help little ones sew and assemble his or her own magic coin purse. The purchase of each book augments the income of indigenous Hmong women and also benefits an education fund for Hmong children. Co-produced by DJ and actress Vernetta Lopez in collaboration with lifestyle group RauLife and illustrated by The Band of Doodlers, the story takes on the tale ‘Pa Jao’, a Hmong fairytale that has been passed down the ages of the Hmong tribe.

Super cool alert! Instead of printing on paper or canvas, OnStone prints images directly onto a smooth stone surface with UV-cured ink, and uses beautifully restored timber to frame it. The result is a fine art-quality image that is scratch-resistant and has uninterrupted depth. No glass is used in the process, thus there is no reflection between the image and the viewer. This new surface also ensures the longevity of your photograph (perfect in Singapore’s brutal heat and humidity!). Stone, after all, will not fade, age or tear.
Combining art and sustainability, these bespoke frames are handmade in Australia, using only natural and recycled materials. Frames come in various sizes and shapes, and prices start from $85.
Use the code SASSYMAMA for 10% off – valid until 1 October 2017.

Call it lavish, but this We Are Cultured allergen-friendly and 100% mulberry-silk pillow case is just too pretty to pass up. Promising to do good for more than just your beauty sleep, the Head In The Clouds Silk Pillowcase is great for hair with its amino acids and waxy and fat fibres which allow locks to glide, meaning less hair damage, split ends, knots and tangles. Silk breathes and doesn’t pick up pore-clogging bacteria like cotton does – so breakouts are less likely! Its hypoallergenic properties make it naturally resistant to other tiny baddies like dust mites, mould, fungus and various allergens, making it perfect for people with allergies. Plus how can you move on from the gorgeous dusty copper pink shade, amirite?!
Available on www.wearecultured.com for AU$79
