It's here, it's here!Bloesem Gazette Volume 5 is here. Every-time we publish a new issue of the Bloesem Gazette we get all hyped up and excited but this time our excitement level is through the roof. Let's break down the thrilling bits of this issue:
1. It's the Holiday Season and this special issue of the Gazette comes with a whopping 20-page Gift Guide. Our very first printed edition of our annual gift guide..
2. Bloesem Gazette Volume 5 touches on all our favourite topics: Styling, craft, design, fashion, beauty, food and travel.
3. We invited 42 contributors from all over the world (we bet you'll recognise a few names) to share some wise words.
4. Of course it was next to impossible to fit everything we discussed with our contributors in one gazette, so look out for full length interviews and many more amazing visuals in the weeks to come!
As usual there's a long list of people that we would like to thank for being a part of this issue.. both our contributors and of course our sponsors for supporting our passion project!
If you haven't already had a cheeky read, please do have a look.. we promise you won't be disappointed. We put our hearts and souls into creating every issue of the Gazette and we hope you enjoy every one of them.. and if you are residing in Singapore, we would love to indulge you in a printed copy of the Bloesem Gazette which we have distributed to cafes and hotspots across Singapore. (Check our Facebook and instagram for the list of locations) ..& if you take a photo of the Gazette remember to tag us on instagram and #bloesemgazette! We'd love to see it..

You may have seen some of Jessica Nielsen's beautiful work on Bloesem over the last few years.. she even designed a free Christmas gift wrap that we shared last year (download it!). We love her contemporary designs that are timeless and we are still very much in love with the Christmas wrapping paper which we have used throughout this year's Bloesem Gift Guide.
We have already added quite a few items from Jessica's store to our Christmas wishlist.. so many pencil cases, totes and notebooks that will be the perfect motivation for a new year of note-taking, school-going and organization! Her cushions and cards are equally divine!
We want to say a BIG thank you to Jessica for her gorgeous illustrations in the Bloesem Gift Guide!

On Monday the Bloesem team made our way down to the heart of Kuala Lumpur for an #EtsymeetsMalaysia social media influencers event we co-hosted with Etsy yesterday. A big thank you to everyone who managed to join us despite the downpour and insane traffic (one take away from this trip: don't underestimate KL's peak hour traffic, we learnt that the hard way) and not forgetting our gracious location and food organizer, LOKL for being the most accommodating and friendly bunch around. Having done most of the planning over email and from Singapore, the LOKL team were a big help in ensuring everything went smoothly.
We met so many friendly faces from Malaysia's very own group of social media influencers and thanks to the rain we all enjoyed a very cosy indoor candle making session taught by our very own Bloesem team member, Mei Kwee.
We'll be back with more snaps from the event but we just wanted to make a quick post to once again thank Etsy for giving us the opportunity to work with them again! The Etsy team's energy is infectious and so inspiring, we look forward to working together in the close close future..
