February is a month of celebrations, with Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day on the calendar. Here are five things we picked as our trusty companions this month.
If you love avocado, especially when it comes in the form of guacamole, you’re gonna go ga-ga for Open Door Policy’s Guacamole Risotto, $20. It might sound strange at first, but all reservations will be thrown out the window after your first spoonful of this gooey green deliciousness. This South American-inspired dish is served with a poached egg, crème fraîche and, of course, nacho chips. Yum!
Open Door Policy is at 19 Yong Siak Street. Tel: 6221 9307.
LANEIGE Jet Curling Mascara_EX
Forget overly dramatic fake eyelashes. Give your peepers the boost they need with LANEIGE Jet Curling Mascara_EX, which promises to lift and curl your lashes with just a few swipes. We love the lightweight air gel formula, which leaves an excellent colour payoff without feeling heavy. It’s also long-wearing and waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about touching up either.
LANEIGE Jet Curling Mascara_EX retails for $34 at all LANEIGE boutiques and counters.
I Quit Sugar: Simplicious by Sarah Wilson
In the follow up to her first book on how to cut sugar out of your life in eight weeks, Sarah Wilson, former magazine editor and host of MasterChef Australia, doles out a 308-recipe book full of wholesome goodness. Besides detailing how to shop, cook and eat without involving processed food, the book also shows us how to do it in the most time-efficient and cost-effective way. The accompanying photos are gorgeous too!
I Quit Sugar: Simplicious retails for $52.95 at all major bookstores.
COMO Shambhala Estate, Bali
2016 just started but we feel like we need a break already. Enter COMO Shambhala Estate, located in Ubud, Bali – a three-hour flight away from Singapore. Get your zen on with the resort’s many wellness programmes, which include yoga sessions, acupuncture treatments, hydrotherapy and more. The water used in all their health facilities are drawn from “The Source”, a local spring famous for its healing properties. If you need a place to find your balance again, this should be at the top of your list.

LANEIGE Edge Drawing Eyeliner
Finally, an eyeliner that has two different-sized applicators: a sharpie tip for precise lines and a pen tip for thicker lines. If you can’t leave the house without eye makeup, this smudge-proof and longwearing eyeliner, available in dark brown and deep black, is a must-have. The elastic felt pen tip is so easy to use, even the tricky cat eye is no problem.
LANEIGE Edge Drawing Eyeliner retails for $29 at all LANEIGE boutiques and counters.
