THAT’S WHY THEY CALL IT PUPPY LOVE – 5 ways a dog can make you happy in a way nothing else can

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If there’s someone out there who’s a great listener, who makes you feel good about yourself, who protects you & who loves you to no end – no, its not your significant other – it’s your DOG! Here’s 5 ways your dog can make you happier than anything else:

 

 

 

The F-word is FUR 

There is absolutely nothing more comforting than a lump of fur at your feet. On a bad day or good, let your dog curl up at your feet and slowly drift into heaven!

All that spazz 

Believe it or not, your dog can be your sole source of entertainment and you’ll never be bored. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself watching him/her chase his tail, try to squeeze into too-tiny spaces or run away from a fly, or sunbathe like on a beach!

Those puppy eyes 

If you think only puppies can do the puppy eyes, think again! Watch your full-grown, maybe even overfed dog give you the puppy eyes when he wants a bite of your dinner. Don’t feel bad if you give in – that’s allowed!

3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A safe pet 

Did we say pet? We meant I safe BET – literally! Dogs can be super-protective about their owners! This ranges from shielding you from strangers to getting possessive when you hang out with other people (or worse, other dogs!)

 

4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The proof is in the paws

Okay, time to be honest. Sometimes, your dog will bring muddy paws into the house and on your furniture. Sometimes they’ll even greet you with their dirty paws. But you’ll soon realize that they’re always there when you need them – they’re always willing to lend a paw on a bad day! Not only will they never let you down, but they’ll always cheer you up!

Every dog has two special abilities – the ability to eat unlimited amount of food and the ability to love you like nobody else! But not every dog has the chance!

 

 

 

This Saturday, come to Select CITYWALK and be a part of our adoption drive by Cause 4 Paws at Pet’s Day Out!! Adopt a homeless dog and help save a life! And if you’re already playing parent to too many dogs, register with us at petsdayout@selectcitywalk.com and bring them along – we have exciting games & activities lined up as well such as shopping opportunity, a doggie café & bakery, a dog fashion show and tons more!

THE MY SQUARE THEORY – 8 Reasons why there’s nowhere else you’d rather be!

You know those food dreams we all have where there’s hot, cheezy, thin crust pizzas in front of you and a dimsum van on your left, the smell of coffee coming from your right – and a candy station in between it all – well, My Square is something like that, only better! I can promise that you won’t want to be anywhere else, and here’s why:

Reason #8 – A little edible city



  If you’ve been to My Square (and have commendable observation skills), you’ll realize that the space looks like a little city! With the intricate street lamps, colourful flower beds and quirky benches and tables, you can imagine yourself walking down the streets of an adorable small town (with food everywhere)!
1



Reason #7- Around the world in 14 meals



  Undoubtedly the one-stop shop for food from around the world – Fat Lulu’s thin crust Pizzas, Burger King burgers, tex-mex from MexItUp bring you some of the western classics. Not to mention, Wanchai by Kylin bringing you a bite from the orient, Habibi, with its Arabian favourites and tons of options from our very own motherland!
2



Reason #6 – The great wall of quirkiness



  You will be absolutely entertained and amused with this adorable wall filled with quirky collectibles! And yes, you can buy them!
3



 Reason #5 – Are you looking for fitspiration?



  If you’re on a diet, you’d think a place like this would be your worst enemy, BUT NO! With brands like Pita Pit, Refuel and Lean Chef serving some delicious healthy food options, you’ll have nothing getting in the way of your fitspiration!
4



 Reason #4 – A taste of India



  Don’t leave your desi genes disappointed – My Square has a great range of desi khaana of all kinds! From North Indian classics at Pind Balluchi, Bombay’s best at Shiv Sagar to some south Indian favourites at The Toddy Shop and Saravana Bhavan!
5



Reason #3 – Sweet dreams for the sweet tooth



  With Gelato from Gelato Italiano, waffles from Drool, and candy from House of Candy and Sinful flavours, your sugary cravings are taken care of at My Square! And if you’re feeling especially adventurous with your dessert desires, then try get a hot crispy waffle with a scoop of Gelato and let it work it’s magic!
6



 Reason #2 – The great outdoors 



  That’s right – Beyond all the quirky interiors and delicious food lies a huge outdoor space. Make the most of the beautiful spring weather as you eat, hang out with your friends and soak in the awesomeness!
7



Reason #1 – There’s no square like My Square



  Okay, so let’s face it. It isn’t just your ordinary square. With its kitchy décor and massive screen in the middle of the space, the delicious dining options, live performances and more, it’s the one place you’ll never want to leave!

5 New Years Resolutions for Shopaholics

Happy 2015 shopaholics! Of course you want to start the year with tons of huge shopping bags filled with a day’s worth of conquests! But this time, as shopaholics of 2015, let’s pledge to change some old shopping habits. Here are some New Year Resolutions every shopaholic must (try to) keep:

 

 

1.     I promise to shop smart

 

Shop wisely. If you already have 3 pairs of black pumps, don’t invest in another one! (Go for those tan ones instead…Steve Madden, are you listening?)

2.     I promise to stick to the list

 

You know how every time you go shopping with clear goals in mind and then get distracted by a very beautiful dress in a Zara shop window (and then by the ALDO shoes, and then by the bags…)? How about this time, resolve to actually stick to the list! (But of course when you’re done, you have the license to get as distracted as you want!)

3.     I promise to be selfless

 

You remember that Promod scarf you saw that you knew your sister would love? Buy it for her! Keep an eye out for stuff your friends and family would like and once in a while, surprise them with a little souvenir of your shopping spree! Hello, brownie points! Remember: Splurging is okay when it’s selfless!

 4.     I promise to experiment

 

If you think it looks fabulous on the rack, it will probably look more fabulous on you! Stop playing it safe, and dare to try the more exciting options! Bye-bye old polka-dot cardigan, hello faux fur jacket!

5.     I promise never to curb the shopaholic in me

 

Rules are important on the surface of things, but deep down, you know you’re a shopaholic at heart – and nothing can or should change that! Keep your shopping spirit at its best this year, and make sure the 2015 section of your wardrobe is fantastic!

HOW TO BE SNUG AS A BUG IN THE WINTER

 

 

Though the winter this year hasn’t been the absolute coldest YET, a little birdie tells me it’s going to get pretty chilly in the next few weeks. So I thought I’d tell you all a few little tricks and secrets to keeping extra cozy (don’t worry – you can be comfy and glam at the same time!)

 

Lets go back to basics

And by basics, I mean the innerwear! Stockings and body-warmers may sound old –school but will save you weeks of sniffling and make sure you’re ready to party on a cold wintry night!

Keep your feet happy and fuzzy

They say that warm feet make a huge difference in maintaining a warm body temperature! And if that doesn’t convince you, just go for the adorability of these super-cute fuzzy socks!

Not just another scarf

Firstly, invest in a SNOOD. A snood, or tube scarf is a loop shaped scarf that you can slip over your neck! Buy a cozy woolen or cashmere one to keep you extra warm and snug (and make a style statement)!

Don’t underestimate the power of faux fur

I only have three words: MUST. BUY. FUR. Fake fur is a trend that never gets old, and keeps you unbelievably warm! (And don’t be surprised if your friends suddenly want to cuddle with you in your incredibly SOFT new attire!)

What are friends for?

If nothing else, here’s a trick that’s bound to work! Curling up with your best friends on a cold evening with some warm blankets and yummy treats! It doesn’t get snugger than that.
