This month at Sassy HQ we’re enjoying celebrating the good life, after all, Singapore celebrated its 49th birthday in August so why not keep the party going all month long! We’ve compiled our lust-list of products that will not only keep you, but your pad, looking perfectly polished.
From an achingly-cool Ikat print top, quirky one-of-a-kind artwork to a cute handcrafted necklace, we’ve got you covered with What Sassy Wants for August.

We love trying out new beauty products but it can be a bit of a hassle choosing products and, not to mention pricey, forking out the dollars for lotions and potions that in the end might not work for you. Thankfully, the cosmetics Gods over at Bellabox have answered our prayers and are offering a monthly membership that we’re all too happy to join. Every month, Bellabox delivers its members a box of mini beauty luxuries from big brands such as Elizabeth Arden, Laura Mercier, O.P.I and Benefit. This way you can buy beauty products with confidence after trying these nifty minis first. No need to wait until December, every month will feel like Christmas once you sign up with Bellabox!
Psst…these memberships also make great gifts, choose from 3, 6 or 12 month memberships!

Red Valentino Taffeta Headband
We’re so happy the hair accessory trend is showing no signs of slowing down, with models at the recent Giambattista Valli Couture show strutting their stuff down the catwalk complete with vintage-inspired headbands like this gorgeous Valentino one.
Living in Singers and dealing with heat-related hair issues means we’re always on the lookout for a way to look chic and stay sweat and frizz-free throughout the day. This girly headband will keep our locks in place with an added feminine finish to our look.

Cheet London Nell Watersnake Lime Green Bag
We don’t even know where to begin with this gorgeous bag. Singapore-based designer Emily Cheetham is a self-taught maestro of design, creating coveted luxury handbags, winning awards left right and centre and attracting celeb fans such as Emma Thompson and girl-group The Saturdays. All her bags are handmade in Thailand by skilled artisans using the finest leathers and materials of the highest quality. This lime green Nell handbag is the perfect statement accessory, but why do we love it? Firstly, the eye-catching jewel tone is just so unique and secondly, not only does the leather woven chain strap have a touch of Chanel about it, but it’s also detachable and adjustable, making this a clutch, short and long shoulder bag-in-one.
Find it: Available online at www.cheetlondon.bigcartel.com for $442.91
Lulu Bare Printed Top
Singapore-based designer (and Sassy Super styler) Claire Alves created Lulu Bare with her sister Louise back in 2012. Having previously worked with international fashion brands such as Chanel and Diane von Furstenberg as well as UK Magazine InStyle, these fashion insiders used their sartorial savvy to launch their eclectic independent fashion label, and we’re loving it!
This stunning top is a double-whammy of on-trend fashion goodness, featuring one of the biggest fashion trends this season – the Ikat print. Lulu Bare also offers free shipping within Singapore, which means you don’t have to sit around twiddling your thumbs waiting for your new purchases to arrive!
