Anouks favorite shops in Singapore: Bloesem |


Anouk van der EL, creator of the TimeCapsules and Little Quote Jar, lives with her husband and two sons in Singapore for a year now. Especially for UrbanMoms, she puts her favorite shops in a row.

If the big brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton fall outside your budget and taste -like with me-, then the neighborhoods Tiong Bahru and Little India (especially Haji Lane) offer a solution! In these neighborhoods you will find the smaller boutique shops and cheerful coffee and lunch hotspots. But where should you actually go?

Bloesem – 59 Eng Hoon Street #01-79

The first Bloesem concept store in Asia from the famous Bloesem Living and Kids blog. A mix of lifestyle and design; great for interior presents (or just one for yourself …). Remember to check the website, because in Bloesem studio around the corner regularly creative workshops -from screen printing to calligraphy to social media bootcamps- are given by designers and creative icons from around the world!
