The Big Reveal: My Very Own Home and Lifestyle Brand – Some Days at Home

Home & Living, Lifestyle

Hi guys, so here’s the little secret that we’ve been working on for months. The launch of my very own home and lifestyle brand— SOME DAYS AT HOME.

Some Days At Home is a passion project I started with the initial aim and objective of supporting young local, entrepreneurs and artists. It was also my desire to dedicate my time to do something meaningful and this business will be operated as a social enterprise, with the goal to give back in the biggest way I possibly can. I’ve also always enjoyed engaging you guys, my audience. So together, we’ll plan workshops and projects to bring to life certain ideas and crafts that you may propose.

So WHAT is Some Days at Home?

Some Days at Home will be an online platform stocking a curation of my favourite brands within the home, beauty and lifestyle category. All the brands that I stock are 100% screened, tried and tested by myself.

 

WHY Some Days at Home?

Over the years in this blogging industry, I’ve been reached out to by many wonderful brands out there to lend my support/ do a shout out for them. Lately however, I’ve found it impossible to accommodate to all their requests. Many of these brands are start up’s with a low budget but with excellent products to offer. All they need is a platform and a voice to bring the word out there. I genuinely want to help them reach out to my audience and support their passion projects in return.

We decided to name it Some Days at Home and launch this project because I find most joy being in the comfort of my own home. Sitting on my couch or around the dining table with my loved ones bring so much gratitude to my heart!

Our homes are definitely our safe haven. Travelling the world can be an experience like no other, but nothing really beats being back at home. I take pride in the styling and decoration of my place as it always ignites this indescribable emotion when I walk through my own doors. I hope to be able to inspire you to do the same, in both small and big ways.

Some brands that are on board with me are Sandome Cura — a wedding vendor whom I acquainted with last year. She helped to prepare gifts for all my guests and I had raving feedback about the soaps they received. A friend of mine even mentioned that it helped to solve her back acne. I have used her soaps and they always make me look forward to my showers. This time, I collaborated to co-design a set of simple pastel handmade soaps in natural ingredients (from Australia) like Cajeput, Lavender, Lemongrass and Frankincense. The soaps are made lovingly by single mothers!

I also collaborated with Actpressions— I was acquainted with her 3-4 years back when she reached out to me to support this little business she started as a movement to spread hope, love and joy through cards, notes and prints. I got a diary from her back then and I’ve been receiving so many enquiries about it ever since. The founder, Jolyn, was diagnosed with clinical depression at 19. Suicidal thoughts and tendencies plagued her as she was growing up and I believe this little project came to fruition as a result of her healing. She makes lovely hand printed stationary. Do get your calendars and diaries for 2019 before they sell out!

Another brand is Yumumu — these beautiful wearable wooden earrings were made from up-cycled wood.

What you can expect to see from Some Days at Home are a lot more exciting collaborations with local brands and designs catered to suit your needs in time to come! Profits made from this passion project with go to supporting The Assisi Hospice. Going forward, I may be collaborating with Singapore Girls Home, to co-design some picture frames/wall prints.
I am beyond excited to show you what we currently have in store for you guys so hang tight and stay tuned!

    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones Melissa! Thank you for hosting Xmas giveaway to your followers!!

    Would love the win the Fujifilm camera because I wish to own a camera that calls as mine! I don’t own any camera except an iPhone 6, not the best iphone Nor the latest but definitely, workable for nice and pretty photos. Just that quality wise is in comparable. Hope to own one camera that is able to travel with me everywhere I go be in a short staycation or holidays trips. Memories are best captured down while we are young as we can only be young once! Definitely going to treasure this camera like a baby if I have the opportunity to bring this baby home with me.

    Thank you for always giving the best to your followers! Keep sparkling as always!

    The Fujifilm camera would be perfect as my Canon camera just got broken a few days ago by my siblings and I was heartbroken. It has been with me for 4-5 years already. Really hope to win this as I’d love to try out a new brand and it would replace my broken camera. It’d really be the perfect Christmas gift for me.

    Merry Christmas Melissa(:
    I would love to win the Fujifilm camera because I believe that precious moments though fleeting, can only truly be immortalised with pictures and in 2019, I just know that I’ll have so many precious memories that I’ll love to hold dear too.
    Of course there will almost be a phone but nothing will be able to beat quality, which is what Fujifilm will have.
    It’ll be such an awesome Christmas blessing to receive this.

    Once again, have a Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
