A cool bronze laptop clutch

For the longest time I’ve wanted a laptop case that didn’t look all IT and gadget-y and something that I could carry everywhere with my handbags without any stark contrast. 

To be honest, I’ve never seen something that I felt fit the bill and so with my usual mantra of ‘if you can’t find it, make it yourself’, I finally got the time to whip out some faux skin I carried back from Japan to make this:

An laptop case that looks more like a clutch! Featuring bronze distressed skin on the outside with full padding and a dark brown cotton twill lining within. My 15” macbook pro fits happily inside:

Will be making a couple more in different variations (like gunmetal skin with a turnlock closure) to sell at a bazaar coming up on 7 Nov, so stay tuned!

Finally organising my make up!

I’ve to confess that I’m not exactly the most organised person and recently the amount of accumulated make up has really gotten to me! Things tend to get really messy doing hair, make up and styling for shoots so I guess I really can’t get away with having different things in many many different places.

Have been searching for a make up case for the longest time but nothing seemed to be perfect – the width and material of the inner tiers, the ability to contain heavy products but still be light enough overall, price, etc. Okay, nothing locally at least. If I were to buy this overseas I’d probably be paying more for shipping than for the case itself.

But today I was determined to find something and be content with it and guess it finally paid off! It’s filled to the brim with stuff but at least it’s organised :)

For those of you looking for make up cases in Singapore, these are some places you can try (sorry for the vague directions cos I didn’t take down the unit numbers!):

  • Far east plaza – quite a few accessories or nail shops have them, you just need to look on top of the shelves.
  • Bugis market – there’s a shop in the centre of the second floor which has a lot but the SA wasn’t the nicest when we went. There’s one on the third floor but only has about two types.
  • People’s Park Complex – this is on the third floor (turn right when you go up the escalators and walk to the end in the centre aisle).
  • People’s Park Centre – Affiliated to the shop at People’s Park Complex, this is called Ivy Cosmetics at #02-29. How do I know? Check out the sign that was on the former shop:

Didn’t mind being redirected a block or two for the day since finally I got what I needed!
