Apologies, as always, for yet another prolonged absence for the tides have changed and there has been an inevitable need for serious introspection and adjustments in the realm of daily career affairs … but! I promise there are lovely things in store and a few {more} exciting collaborations that I am absolutely bursting to share with all of you! 

Lovely readers, at the inception of my blog I had no idea that my little space on the web would become a portal to the world - and resultantly become a gravitating force to connect with other beautifully stylish souls across the globe. To my beloved friend and most loyal advocate of my blog Pree, the talented founder of, I could not be more thrilled about the launch of your clothing line, which is an impeccably curated extension of her perfect accessories line. If you have not already perused the cornucopia of sartorial delights, do frolic along here and treat yourself to something that you will adore forever. 

Hoping your week ahead is absolutely scintillating! 

Much love, Mandy xx

 I have the extraordinary pleasure of emanating from a genepool of incredible human beings. One such example is my cousin Zara Lim who has acquired the complete trifecta of beauty, talent, and intelligence. She is the designer of the quirky and impossibly lovely label Edward Kwan and whilst I am clutching one of her literary-inspired makeup bags, the girl has a penchant for menswear too and I guarantee you won't find mens ties made the way designs them.

And to celebrate our first Edward Kwan x frocks & other frivolities collaboration (open internationally), we are giving away two of these makeup bags for two gorgeous readers. Entering is simple! 
(1) Like Edward Kwan on Facebook OR follow us on Instagram {@_edwardkwan and @frocks_frivolities}
