We all love the café-hopping lifestyle that entails sitting in a quaint café with a beautiful ambience with our girlfriends. d’Good Café, which is delightfully situated in the heart of the bohemian district of Holland Village sports a charming, laidback and homey interior, a perfect hideout from the hustle and bustle of the Singaporean City life. Their two levels of seating range from a bar to a balcony, which accommodates different settings for the different caféhoppers.
After wandering around both floors of the pretty café, our HVVgirls Jolynn and Serena started their brunch with a Ham & Cheese French Toast. Served with fresh fruits on the side, along with French berry jam in the sandwich, it was indeed a unique sweet and savoury twist to a normal Ham & Cheese! The unexpected twist to an everyday sandwich deserved to be called a favourite!
Next, feeling adventurous and wanted to have something different, Jolynn and Serena chose to settle with the Baked Lemongrass Chicken (the owner’s own recipe!) and the Sweet Potato Waffle. The flavourful chicken thigh marinated with fragrant Lemongrass served to be a great combination, with the homemade Mash Potato with surprise crunchy potato bits in it a great compliment! Purple Sweet Potatoes were steamed and added into the Waffle, which created a very distinctive taste. Sweet Potato and Waffle lovers would definitely enjoy this!
Besides the food and the décor, d’Good Café also brings a brand new coffee experience to the table – “Blend & Brew the way you like it”. With the basis of no two customers are alike, they allow customers to create their own special coffee blend from a range of single origin beans. Fantastic, coffee lovers rejoice! Here, Serena fills in the survey of her coffee preferences based on the body, acidity and flavour, and excitedly waits while the Barista prepares the selected coffee beans based on her choices.
She then ranks her favourites from the three suitable options presented by the barista during the cupping process.
Finally, her personalized coffee is blended, brewed and served.
Happy #hvvgirl with her custom blend coffee! d’Good Café offers this Custom Blend Coffee service to the public by appointment on weekdays for an awesome rate of $12! Your custom blend, tagged by your mobile number is saved in their system and you can keep heading back to have that exact cup of exceptional cuppa at their normal coffee rates! What’s not to love?

As the temperatures start to drop, and the color palette of deeper, darker hues dominate the fashion scene, you can certainly incorporate pops of color to keep your autumn wardrobe cheery, upbeat and eye-catching!
A quick and easy tip would be to add a brightly colored structured blazer to your fall outfit. Brightly colored outerwear can bring you through the fall season by simply pairing them with more subtle colors and basic pieces. For this look, we paired our Mimosa Classic Blazer with our Sage Basic Camisole and Uptown Classic Trousers which can bring you from the workplace to a night out with the girls!
It’s all about having fun with fashion by tying in loud colors with your wardrobe. Here are some other fun-colored blazers to add to your closet this season!
Have a bright and amazing Fall!
Oh how we love summer.
Sadly, it’s almost coming to an end!
So while we're still basking in the last weeks of summer's blue skies and sunshine, what better way to wrap this wonderful season than with a blast?
