Katre’s Portobello Bag: Cute & Functional

Katre is a local brand that makes quality leather bags and accessories that are world class. You already all know how much I love their Camden Tourist, but here is another design worth looking at.


As described on Katre’s website, “The Portobello is a leather crossbody bag that’s all about having fun! Your kind of take-everywhere-stash-everything bag that is uber useful as it is delicious to look at. We outfitted this one with an adjustable buckle strap so you can sling it on comfortably whatever the circumstance.”

I love how this beautiful bag comes in an assortment of bright sherbet like colors. Take your pick here:

Here are its specifications:

  • Calf leather
  • Cotton-mix lining
  • Zip closure
  • Three interior pockets
  • 19″ to 23” drop for adjustable strap
  • H 8″ x L 5″ (base) / L 8″ (at widest) x W 3″

This bright little beauty is perfect for travel and life on the go. It can comfortably fit your wallet, phone, shades, and an assortment of beauty products.

Singapore Airlines Premium Economy is World Class

A quite a number of friends have messaged asking what airline we used to fly to South Africa. The answer: Singapore Airlines.

We chose Singapore Airlines because of these reasons:

  1. The ease of travel: To get to Cape Town was only Manila – Singapore – Johannesburg (one hour on the plane) – Cape Town. The was back was only Johannesburg – Singapore – Manila. So simple, right?
  2. The fantastic staff and service: We love how organised Singapore Airlines was when it came to loading and unloading passengers. The staff on both flights were extremely polite and catered to every small need.
  3. The comfort of the planes: We rode economy on the way to Cape Town and premium economy on the way back. Honestly, both ways were extremely comfortable with good airline food and a wide selection of entertainment available on both flights.

Singapore Airlines is celebrating their 70th Anniversary and we couldn’t be any happier to hear them continue to soar. There are also lots of great flight deals as part of the celebration. I think it’s safe to say we’re all looking forward to booking our future flights to other global destinations with them in the near future.

Here are Singapore Airline’s destination routes:

Review: Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder

We live in a tropical humid climate that has basically two types of weather conditions: hot or hotter. As a child, I remember being soaked in baby cologne and dusted in baby powder to keep me fresh and dry. But it’s been recently noted that talc, the leading ingredient in almost all powders, is linked to cancer and a variety of lung ailments. Not one to take the chance, I banned all powders from our home.

I was recently invited to try Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder to see if this safe alternative could do the job of keeping my family feeling fresh longer. I’m happy to report that this nifty little powder with its own puff does precisely what it sets out to do.

Made from certified natural rice and maize and carefully formulated without any harsh chemicals, this lightly scented hypo-allergenic powder spreads easily without any dust particles and really keeps skin feeling cool and refreshed. I also love how it doesn’t leave a white residue.

Fin and Nara now enjoy using it on their backs before play time and even my husband Carl is preferring to use it on his feet instead of his usual foot powder with talc.

In case you need anymore convincing, here’s this adorable video with Scarlet Snow Belo showing us how to keep cool in our hot weather:

Belo Baby Talc-free Powder is now available in leading supermarkets and department stores nationwide but you can also buy it here and enjoy free delivery until May 31 with a minimum purchase
