We’re into the second week of 2016! School/work has commenced (urgh) and we’re totally looking forward to relaxing our butts off this weekend. Check out our recommendations!

It’s been a while since I’ve attended a yoga class, but I’m really looking forward to visiting The Yoga’s Co’s new studio at Pahang Street (near Bugis). Drop in lessons are only $50 if you come with a buddy, so book your mats now!
The Yoga Co. is located at 10A Pahang Street, Singapore 198611.
SHOP: Comme Home

Guess who’s still not over the marble trend? As a #flatlay aficionado, I love the use of marble slabs, trays and bowls in my styling. Comme Home has some pieces starting from $49 – totes affordable considering how good they look.
Set in the medieval times, Nimona is a graphic novel which follows the adventures of a young shapeshifter who applied to be the sidekick of a knight-turned-supervillian-scientist, Lord Ballister Blackheart. We promise you that this fantasty/sci-fi will have you in stitches. Check out the first three chapters online if you don’t believe us.

ATTEND: aMEI | AMIT UTOPIA World Tour
Mandopop queen a MEI was the true queen of breakup songs eons before Adele appeared on the musical horizon, and her songs still do a number on me no matter how many times I’ve listened to her classics. She’ll be coming to Singapore for her show this weekend and I’ll bet everything I own that her concert is going to be fantastic.
aMEI | AMIT UTOPIA World Tour will be held on 8 January at the National Stadium. Tickets from $68, more info here.
SHOP: The Tinsel Rack Sale Bonanza (9-10 January)
I never turn down an opportunity to shop, especially when there’re awesome bargains involved. That’s why I’m headed down to The Tinsel Rack’s Sale Bonanza, where there’ll be clothing, shoes, jewellery, watches, phone casings and more for sale at up to 80 per cent off! Also, there’s gonna be eye-candy present while you shop, with the likes of social media influencers like Ding Xuan (@twiggtwiggz) and Valerie Wang (@valeriewang) having a booth selling their pre-loved stuff there as well. Happy shopping!
The Tinsel Rack Sale Bonanza will be held from 9 to 10 January, at PoMo. More info here.
There’s a lot going on this weekend, so I probably wouldn’t have much time to fashion a full-scale manicure design. But this minimalistic nail design is very easy to achieve: simply glob on clear base polish, wait for it to dry before taping off each portion accordingly (or freehand it if you have steady hands), and paint away! Plus, this design goes with almost every outfit, so that’ll be very handy (pun fully intended).

ATTEND: EXO PLANET #2 The EXO’luXion in Singapore
By now, every hardcore EXO-L would know that the charming lads are gonna perform at the Singapore Indoor Stadium this weekend, and we’re guessing you’re probably obsessively looping their tracks, memorising the fan chants, deciding what rad outfit to wear, or all of the above. You’re not alone; we’re just as excited as you are! BTW, tickets are still available at Sportshub if you wanna grab some last-minute tics.
VISIT: Polytechnic Open Houses
We’re having our Teenage Campus Run at Singapore Polytechnic, Nanyang Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic and Temasek Polytechnic, and if you haven’t already checked out the various diploma offerings, tomorrow’s the last day. While you’re at it, don’t forget to pop by the Teenage booths because there’ll be awesome goodie bags to take home and loads of fun activities to do. Psst, if you’re visiting the SP Open House, you might even spot a wild Iron Man dolling himself up at the free makeup trial provided by Etude House.
APPRECIATE: National Gallery Singapore
We apologise for not talking about the new National Gallery Singapore earlier. From the majestic facade which features a gorgeous roof canopy down to the awe-inspiring artworks that send us back to the early days of Singapore, this is seriously one architectural eye candy not to be missed. The place’s pretty big, so make sure you do your homework before heading down. For the uninitiated, here’s a handy itinerary of what you should do there. You’re welcome!
What’s on your list this weekend? Share you ideas with us!
