The Mighty Avocado

We’re loving that this delicious, rich thing is actually healthy for our bodies. Sure, it contains a sizeable amount of fat, but get this - it’s a good fat, specifically the Omega 3 fatty acid, that actually helps our bodies to burn more fat. Leave it to ripen for a few extra days and the delightful flesh takes on the consistency and texture of butter. It’s not the real thing, but it sure comes very close, and for this reason, many vegan cake recipes actually include it as a key ingredient that promises an extra creamy oomph. We’ve recently found a new use for it, and this dish is truly a dream. Blend a ripe avocado to get a luscious paste,...

Lark and Peony Interviews: Miss Glitzy

Peixian, or MsGlitzy as she is known on her blog, is your ultimate go-to gal for the best food, fashion, and fun in town. This vibrant lady sure is energetic - she travels, practices yoga, blogs, attends fashion shows, and even organises charity events. Did we mention that she manages all that on top of her career in finance? We share a lovely afternoon over ginger ale and truffle fries to dig into the glitzy side of her – and it sure wasn’t hard. Describe a day in the life of Msglitzy I work from 9-6, and after work I attend event launches or media parties. I try to attend events twice a week at most so that I also get...

Lark and Peony Interviews: Junie

We’re always looking for inspiration here at Lark and Peony, and boy, do they come to us in all forms. Travel, books, cafes, articles, ideas, nature, people - even food! We try to share the little things that inspire us on our Facebook and Instagram, but the hardest of all is telling you about the interesting people that we get to meet. There's just so much to their delightful personalities that we can't possibly fit into a Facebook share or an Instagram picture. With that, we’d like to introduce our new blog segment, Lark and Peony Interviews, where we have a chat with the women that we find inspiring in their own ways. Of course, it is only fitting that...

SPOTTED: The Istana

Last Friday, one of our friends attended the Public Service Week Istana Reception Ceremony. The event commemorates public officers in Singapore, and for our worldwide audience, the Istana is the official residence and office of the President of Singapore. Boy, were we both honoured and proud to have a Lark and Peony dress on the grounds of the Istana! Here is the gorgeous Verena in the Hsi Shih in Waterlilies. Doesn’t she look formal, yet perfect for an outdoor event? We love that she wasn’t afraid to make her outfit pop with a pair of pointed pumps in a bold red – who says you can’t pair striking pieces together? We think she carried off the dress beautifully!   Looking...
