The Cheat Sheet: Quirky clutches, the Pink Star, and food subscription services

We’re really looking forward to the Singapore International Jazz Festival, which kicks off tonight with performances by British songstress Corinne Bailey Rae, DJ Patrick Oliver, and Al Mckay’s Earth Wind and Fire. Held over this weekend at the Marina Bay Sands event plaza, and Sands Expo and Convention Centre, the annual music showcase is also headlined by the likes of Grammy award-winning singer Esperanza Spalding and bassist Nik West.

Coldplay is also in town to play two sold-out concerts on Saturday and Sunday. We simply can’t wait to hear their hits such as Yellow, Fix You and Hymn For the Weekend, and expect nothing short of a magical experience. For fans of trance music, Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren will also be here tomorrow for his Armin Only Embrace World Tour concert at Gardens By the Bay, where he’ll perform his rousing tunes alongside popular acts such as Betsie Larkin and BullySongs.

But if all you desire this weekend is to relax indoors — especially with the recent bizarre weather that alternates between blazing heat and heavy rain — we’ve lined up some of our best stories from the past week. Get some sartorial inspiration with our roundup of quirky clutches, lust after the huge S$83.8 million Pink Star diamond, and revolutionise your grocery shopping experience by signing up with a food subscription service (there’s even ice cream).
