Singapore and social media through Erin's eyes

Bloesem Living | Bloesem Class and an interview with Erin Loechner of CLementine Daily

The Bloesem Team had the pleasure of having Erin (of Design for Mankind and Clementine Daily) and her family here this week for Bloesem class and we took the opportunity to ask her some questions while we had her here! Read on to find out more.. Also all the pictorial enjoyment that is about to ensue is kindly brought to you by Erin's instagram feed.

(If you are interested in joining Erin's last 2 Blogging and social media class, head over to Bloesem class or drop us an email before it's too late! Erin heads back Sunday.)

Bloesem Living | Bloesem Class and an interview with Erin Loechner of CLementine Daily

Bloesem Team // What do you feel is the biggest difference between your experience teaching in Singapore compared to elsewhere?

Erin Loechner // I was actually surprised at how small the difference between Singapore students and U.S. students are! They're proactive, interested and right on the cusp of truly tapping into the beauty of social media. It's been such a delight to witness the similarities in knowledge and passion - all the way on the other side of the world!

BT  // A recent survey revealed that Singapore is one of the most socially connected countries on earth. Some free advice for Singaporean companies to effectively utilize social media for their business?

Erin's answer and more after the cut..

EL  // I think the key to succeeding in social media is to remember that what's ordinary to you is often extraordinary to others. Never be afraid to share the details of your life or business, even those you feel are mundane. I promise; it's fascinating to someone out there!

My other tip is to create a social media policy for yourself or business. Outline a few key ideas and goals - what message are you trying to convey? How can you accurately reflect your brand on your various channels? Social media - in my opinion - is about informing, inspiring and engaging your loyal audience. Write down some direct avenues you plan to do this so you can help focus your energies on growth, influence and building your tribe.

BT  //  Name one thing you notice that you think is very unique about the social media trend in Singapore.

EL  //  I actually love how social media conveys the same message universally, no matter where we are: it's a window into the lives or ourselves and those around us. I see food photos on Instagram, funny GIFs on Facebook, beautiful imagery on Pinterest and news updates on Twitter. 

It does seem as if Singapore locals embrace chats like QQ and Whatsapp more than in the states, which shows there's a growing trend on a desire for privacy or exclusivity among networks. This is still a developing trend in the U.S. as well - one that I'm excited to watch unfold!

BT  //  What is your most favourite dish that you have tried in Singapore?

EL  //  Definitely the hot dog and ginger carrot juice at Kith Cafe. Everything that gem serves is amazing! We've visited at least once daily. :)

Smila Home and Lifestyle

 { 1. CREA-M Serum, 2. Porcelain Bowl , 3. Cottage Garden Hand Wash , 4. Stripey Blanket , 5. Wooden Rabbits , 6. Cotton Plaid }

Browsing through the website, I immediately felt like Smila is like a long lost Spanish sister of the Bloesem Store. They have many items I have seen on design blogs and have all spent a long time on my "Wants" list. With everything from jewelry to lifestyle pieces, their range of products varies from vintage pieces to contemporary ones. From unqiue and interesting patterns to the minimalistic and simple Nordic style, Smila is a well balanced mix of beautiful products sourced from all over Europe. The best part is their collection is always growing and changing, keeping it fresh and like a new shopping experience everytime!

Bloesem Class Space

Bloesem Living | Bloesem Class Space in Tiong Bahru, Singapore

I just wanted to show you this today ... some iphone snaps i took from our new space ... as well as some of the new items you can find in it! 

We still have some decorating to do in the space but there definitely isn't a lack of items to display, it's just a matter of time that all the display shelves will be filled.

We've also made a special Father's Day collection of goodies in both the store as well as the Bloesem Class space, for the Moms and kiddos to grab something for the Dads. Always better to shop early rather than panic the day of! You can find most of the items listed below on Bloesem's online store or in-store, and if you can't find it, drop us an email! (That item is probably on it's way to be uploaded to the store.)

We Ride!

Bloesem Living | Papillionaire bicycles outside the Bloesem Creative Space

Well okay.. not really, but we do have a papillionaire bicycle outside the shop now! Isn't it a beauty? The kind folks over at Style Bicycles Asia thought we would love to have one of these outside Bloesem, and of course we totally agree.

The basket is both beautiful and functional, acting as a great holder of Bloesem Gazettes. The bicycle also makes it 10x easier to spot Bloesem from further down along the street.

There were so many beautiful colors and even different styles of bicycles that we could choose from but this Papillionaire Sommer definitely spoke to us. Plus it rides soooo smoothly. I mean I'm not much of a cyclist but it is too tempting to have a bicycle outside the store and not take it for a spin. Personally, I (Zara) am not confident enough to cycle around the streets but Irene and Anouk (being Dutch and all) and born cyclists so I have to say, the bicycle fits Bloesem perfectly. Maybe we should name it? Any suggestions?
