You know how the coolest threads always seem to be from those little boutiques you find while traveling in the region? Now you can now shop from independent and socially conscious brands from Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong and Bali in one place – Upmrkt! The curated online marketplace features businesses and products with a purpose, whether it’s businesses that support communities with fair trade, those with slow production methods, or local designers that promote clean living and less waste. Shop from categories like Deli, Craft Alcohol, Baby & Kids, Boutiques, Home, Wellness, Books, Photography & Design, and Pets! With the holidays coming up, there’s also a Christmas pop-up category so you can shop all things festive!
Orders are shipped directly from the shop/maker, so each shop will ship separately, ensuring that most of the profit made from the items go directly to the designers.
Upmrkt officially launches this month with 6o shops and counting – new shops will be joining and more items will be added all the time!
How cute are these prints?! In conjunction with the 90th birthday of Disney’s Mickey Mouse Mouse this November, mama- and baby-friendly bag brand Petunia Pickle Bottom has collaborated with Disney Baby to create four diaper bags and carriers covered in iconic Mickey Mouse designs!
PPB’s ultimate diaper bag for busy parents was designed with the modern mom in mind, incorporating intuitive features like a clever built-in changing station, plenty of pockets, magnetic closure, a grab handle, stroller straps, and the option to switch from backpack to crossbody and shoulder bag mode easily! It also has an easy-to-clean glazed coated canvas exterior and water-resistant linings – perfect for those everyday spills and messes!

One of the newest silhouettes in the PPB line is the Ace Diaper Bag Backpack, which offers you a modern spin on the classic backpack.
Always spilling the bub’s milk in your bag, mama? This easy-to-clean, insulated, BPA-free carrier will help keep your baby’s bottles clean, close and at the ready!
This easy-to-clean, waterproof, BPA-free cube will help you keep pacifiers safe and ready or the little one – so you can finally say goodbye to digging through your bag and fishing out a (dirty pacifier) once and for all.
The Petunia Pickle Bottom Micky Mouse Collection will be available online and in stores from 5 November 2018 at BOVE, Tangs, First Few Years, Motherswork and Little Baby!
Gemstone experts Lustre Jewellery have collaborated with fashion blogger and photographer extraordinaire Sabrina Sikora (you may remember her from our Ms. Yin Ms. Yang fashion series!) to create EIVOR, a collection of clean and sophisticated monochromatic hues of stones like rock crystal quartz, black onyx, white howlite and black agate druzy. Named after Sabrina’s daughter, meaning “wise gift” or “treasure” in Old Norse, the ultra-chic capsule jewellery collection comprises ten eye-catching contemporary designs – including three necklaces, five sets of earrings, one cuff and one ring – all of which showcase a breathtakingly beautiful array of semi-precious gemstones set in sleek rhodium-plated base metal.
EIVOR by Lustre x Sabrina Sikora is available online at Lustre Jewellery
We’ve loved Attaby Collective (also known as “The AC”) since it launched last year in a cool Joo Chiat shophouse that perfectly matched its curated take on local fashion, accessories and lifestyle labels. Now central and west mamas no longer have to haul out to the East Coast to get their fashion fix, as The AC has just opened a brand new River Valley location on Mohamed Sultan Road. You can look forward to more fab finds like Singapore-inspired scented candles, demi fine jewellery, contemporary rugs and homewares, killer clothes and accessories, and fun kids’ products like Tara’s World hooded Turkish towels (we can’t get enough!).
