The haze is abating (hopefully!) and pumpkins are working their way onto menus all over town. Fall is in the air here in Singapore; here’s what Sassy Mama Wants to make the most of the autumnal cosiness!
The leaves are changing from green to brown (in theory) and your favourite clothing line has brought out an awesome Autumn/Winter collection…which typically, is full of scarves and fur jackets. You get the idea however mama: a new season is upon us and with that the urge to bake festive cookies, indulge a little and spruce up the home decor. We’ve rounded up what we’re coveting this month; it’s all here in What Sassy Mama Wants: Fall Feel!
Tefal Snack Collection Waffle Iron
What better way to treat yourself (and the little ones of course) than to a stack of freshly baked waffles on a lazy Sunday morning? Sometimes a mama’s got a hankering for beige food and it’s oh-so-good! With three interchangeable, non-stick plates, mamas can choose from waffles, pancakes or paninis…or all three, who’s judging? Not us.

Body Cremes from Laura Mercier Holiday Collection 2015
If you’ve ever had the good fortune to experience a Laura Mercier honey bath, you’ll know why we are so excited for their new Luxe Holiday Collection mama! Bringing back the classic honey bath with a welcomed twist, these deliciously scented products are now available as a moisturising body creme! Turn as sweet as sugar and drizzle yourself in creme brûlée, soufflé or rich almond butter.
Oiliy Playing Cards Shoulder Bag & Kids Wallet
The opening of Oilily’s flagship store is the best news we’ve heard all week, and although we don’t technically have seasons here in Singapore, that doesn’t mean that we can’t indulge in a few Autumn-themed goods! These cute and quirky designs from their Playing Cards and Paper Pop collections come in a whole host of colours and styles, with this bear backpack and Alice in Wonderland-inspired kids wallet being our favorites! Their out-of-the-box patterns are a fashion statement that both mama and kiddos are sure to love.

Set of Twelve Cookie Cutters
We don’t know about you mama, but baking with the munchkins never gets tiresome. Beside the obvious perk of getting to lick the spoon, we love the fun bonding time it provides with all of our little ones. These super cute cookie cutters are perfect for every occasion, ensuring that your chocolate chip cookies become a centre piece all year round! If you need us, we’ll be pressing leaves and pumpkins all week mama.
Find it: Available at Crate and Barrel, 2 Orchard Turn, #04-21/22, ION Orchard, Singapore 238801 for $37
Lil’ Fairy Mail Box
These teeny tiny fairy mailboxes have us questioning whether we’re buying this one for the kiddos or mama’s inner child. Address and receive notes from your residential fairy princess, tooth fairy or dwelling magical creatures as each mailbox comes with ten minute letters and red sticker seals to kick-start the conversation. We also love this sparkly blue fairy door that only fairies can open. Kiddos could expect a visit if they’re extra well behaved however…I do believe in fairies! I do! I do!
Find it: Available online at Madie Moo for $25.
Tree House Bed and Hideaway
Isn’t this Tree House Hideaway just the coolest piece of furniture mama? Doubling as both a bed and a hang-out, this French designed cubby hole is perfect for little ones (and weary mamas) to hang out with friends and let imaginations run wild. The elevated mattress makes way for storage or an additional, cosy den. Simply throw in some cushions, throws or bean bags and voila!
