1. Shake up your own exotic coffee cocktail

As you sip on this cool concoction starring the Monsoon Malabar, the new grand cru from Nespresso, the idea is to imagine that you’re swaying on an 18th century ship from India to Europe carrying fine Arabica beans, which, thanks to the humidity and tropical sea winds, have taken on a unique woody, spicy and salty aroma, and mellow texture. To try the limited edition capsules ($12 for 10 capsules), head to a Nespresso boutique or to www.nespresso.com, where you can also find recipes for three coffee cocktails that will make the Monsoon Malabar shine. This one you see is called Wander on the Deck. Ahoy, coffee-matey!

We’re hopping mad about these cleansing oils ($49.90 each) from Cyber Colors featuring Fifi Lapin. The limited edition collection also has an eye make-up set which comes in a cute cosmetic case ($33.90). FYI, Fifi Lapin is the world’s best-dressed (cartoon) bunny. Check out her OOTDs and fashionista musings on her blog.

Available exclusively at SaSa stores. DBS cardholders get a 5 per cent discount with minimum purchase of $37, till April 26.

3. Make a bucket (bag) list

Bags that look like buckets are the coolest things to casually sling over your shoulder this season, and while you may not be able to get your paws on the cult Mansur Gavriel bucket bag (waiting list, yo), here are three bucket bags you can procure — no, um, pail-kicking or hair-pulling needed.
