The plants at Ikea are pretty attractive especially what they have brought in for Chinese New Year.
I must visit Ikea again before the Christmas season is over. You truly get a feel for a Swedish Christmas there.
Loved the strawberry & lime cider at Ikea. Loveliest scent & aftertaste. It was below 5 bucks and much cheaper than having it at a restaurant where I’ve seen cider marked up and sold for as much as 15 bucks.
Ikea always seems to do Christmas best. So we trooped on there to have a look. It was charming as the year before and I really liked the little tin Chritmas tree ornaments best. B noticed the unique use of … Continue reading
I have a major weakness for pretty designs and colours. Ikea is so tempting with their fresh designs in punchy or soothing colours. I adore the shades they choose for their products and the clean lines. I feel like a … Continue reading
I was immediately attracted to this bowl. You see, I like things made of natural materials and I have a weakness for light woods. Even for flooring at home I prefer blonde woods to dark ones like teak. I usually … Continue reading
Out of all the Christmas decorations I’ve seen I think Ikea does it best. Had to do our usual round of checking them out and we went to the Tampines branch. Didn’t buy anything as it was crazy crowded. Hard … Continue reading
Even though I have the new catalogue, it’s always more fun to actually look at the stuff at the store. Often some things can feel quite flimsy, so I need to shake them a little and see how easily they … Continue reading
Good to see that Ikea is bringing back authentic Swedish brands again. At one point they decided to do everything in-house and there were a lot of appeals from the Swedish community that they preferred the candies and treats they … Continue reading
I will have a new post out soon at White As Milk and it’ll be about my uniquely Singapore view of Easter. Meanwhile, I thought I’d post some photos from a recent visit to Ikea. It’s one place I actually … Continue reading
Another reason to adore Ikea. Twenty-four numbered drawers to mark a countdown to Christmas is a lovely idea. It’s called an Advent calendar and costs S$19.90 which is a bit expensive, but it’s such a cool idea for both kids … Continue reading
I love experiencing new things. Took advantage of the low season and went to Scandinavia during a period no one wants to go there. Basically it’s mostly dark and grey with just 6 hours of daylight from about 9am to … Continue reading
Absolutely loved the broccoli and carrot soft toys. Great idea to get kids to love these vegetables. The prints at the kiddie section are somehow more vibrant. Dolls depicting different ethnicities. I was very tempted to get this paint, crayons … Continue reading
I find the products here quite appealing. I need to appreciate Salmon more. The crepe looks so good. Very pretty packaging.
Just a reminder to myself to avoid Ikea on the weekends. The main crowds were at the restaurant, food area and kids section which was treated like a free playground. It was utter chaos. Like our MRT stations at peak … Continue reading
Have always loved the Christmas displays and products at Ikea. A handcrafted Dala horse straw goat had us captivated. A heart shaped straw wreath in my favourite shade of red. Contrasts well with the natural coloured straw one. If you … Continue reading
Things that caught my eye because of their colour or design. Especially the toys in the kid’s section.
When I got an Ikea flyer advertising the new items for Chinese New Year, I thought I just have to go there and check it out. Here are some photos from trip there. If you’re having a Chinese New Year, … Continue reading
I need a chair and was looking at some at Ikea, but somehow the most comfortable ones occupy quit a bit of space. I prefer white to black, but white gets so dirty. There is a removable cover though, but … Continue reading
I was late for the breakfast and unfortunately picked the last french toast set that was there. Not surprising that it was cold, but the worst part was biting into eggshells and having a hard time retrieving the pieces. Aw … Continue reading
