Flower desktop wallpapers

Despite things getting hectic, it’s always good to take time out to smell the flowers (although not too literally!) My family and I took a trip to Gardens by the Bay in Singapore recently – a newly constructed ‘garden in the city’. In the flower dome, a cool-dry Mediterranean climate is replicated and flowers from all over the world can be viewed up-close.

If you’re in Singapore and love flowers, I’d highly recommend a visit!

In the meantime, here are some free flower desktop wallpapers taken from our trip. Enjoy! :)

Flower series

Things have been pretty crazy recently but flowers from a loved one always makes my day! There’s just something about the gentle folds of the petals and the beautiful colors. Adds a little bit of magic to the room…

Each time I receive flowers I can’t help but snap photos of them. I’ve decided to turn them into a series of images – for memories and to share with you! If you’ve had a hectic week too, hopefully these will help make your day too :)

Organize your wires with a handy wrap

With the increasing number of gadgets I carry around for travel, the corresponding number of wires have been adding up! I used to toss them all into a pouch but after a while, the wires would just become a tangled mess. Has this happened to you too? :)

I’ve been wanting to come up with a solution for some time and finally got down to it today! Made from fabric and some velcro, this wrap helps to separate your wires neatly. What’s more, it can be rolled up for storage in a cupboard or a suitcase without taking up additional, unnecessary space!
