If you lost The Great War like we did while trying to snag tickets to Taylor Swift The Eras Tour during the pre-sale, virtual hugs! There’s always the general sales that’s happening 7 July, 12pm. Hopefully you’ve already registered for the General On-Sale on Ticketmaster from 23-28 June and now have the access code to join the General On-Sale on 7 July. If you don’t have an access code, you’ll probably be put on the waitlist. We hear most people have better luck queuing at the SingPost offices for concert tickets, but we’re sure the queues have already formed the night before! In the meantime, check out this video to manifest some positive vibes and have luck on your side when making your ticket purchase!

Getting dressed while pregnant can be quite a feat – so here’s a homegrown brand that’s helping mamas take the guesswork out of getting dressed with their premium basics for bump and beyond. Embrace has just launched their Summer Collection featuring elevated and truly versatile wardrobe staples made for every stage: pregnant, nursing or not! The Daily Ribbed Tank ($49.50) and Ribbed Tank Dress ($76, pictured) are available in five sizes and two neutral colourways, but they’re anything but basic! Embrace is built on the belief in investing in fewer but better pieces so these staples are ethically made from luxuriously soft fabrics that stand the test of time. The current collection is made of U.S. Supima Cotton and Austrian Micromodal, known for being buttery soft, breathable, durable, and eco-friendly. The brand launched last year with just two products (the Soft Ribbed Nursing Tank and Soft-Cup Nursing Bra) but they’ve already been recognised for their excellent quality and design with over 100+ five-star reviews. Free courier shipping in Singapore for orders $100 and up.
