Why are eggs and bunnies associated with Easter? March 21, 2016 06:00
Eggs and rabbits have been a symbol and tradition of Easter for centuries. But why eggs and why rabbits? The best way to understand this is to tell you about Easter as a celebration and what happens prior to this day.
What is Easter?
Easter is a festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. Prior to Easter, Christians practice a 40 days lent, a fasting period where they are abstained from any animal produce. Prior to the first day of lent also known as Ash Wednesday, Shrove Tuesday / Pancake Day is celebrated. In some places, Shrove Tuesday is also called Mardi Gras, a carnival day of indulgence before the fasting begins. Eggs at home were used up to make pancakes.
SHROVE TUESDAY - ASH WEDNESDAY - LENT - GOOD FRIDAY - EASTER
Eggs symbolise new life and new beginning, said to represent Jesus' resurrection.
Rabbits give birth to a big litter early spring therefore they represent rebirth, fertility and spring, signifying the resurrection of Jesus around the start of spring.
Easter at Nonamu Studio
Here at the Nonamu studio, we had lots of fun decorating eggs with faces and dressing them up! You still have time to do the same. Just get some eggs and coloured marker pens then start drawing.

Inspirational Women: Emma Watson March 08, 2016 01:00
On celebrating International Women's Day, we would like to share three quotes from the inspirational young woman, Emma Watson. She, the Harry Potter girl has grown up into a smart and talented woman with courage and self-determination. She even managed to gather global attention on the HeForShe campaign as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador through her powerful speech.
"Achieving gender equality requires the engagement of women and men, girls and boys. It's everyone's responsibility."
"Girls should never be afraid to be smart."
"I fell like young girls are told they have to be a princess, and be delicate and fragile, and that's bullsh**t. I identify much more with the idea of being a warrior, being a fighter. If I was going to be a princess, I'd be a warrior princess, definitely. I think women are scared of feeling powerful and strong and brave sometimes I think you've got to embrace it."
Gifts for your stylish mother this Mother's Day February 28, 2016 13:40
What does most mum expect from their children on Mother's Day? I cannot speak for all mothers in the world but I know a fact that all my mother would want is to spend some quality time with her children. If mum is still with us this very moment, an afternoon tea session would most definitely make a beautiful day out.
We have listed three afternoon tea in London that in our opinion is the perfect place to bring your mother.
Afternoon Tea with mum
For the mothers who love some luxury in life.
For the artistic mothers who love some quirkiness.
For the mothers who love some floral and live harp music.
Gifts for your mum
Gifts will not be expected though it will be a nice gesture to pick out something your mother would love, appreciate and use. So if you, like me, have a mum who loves fashion and like to look her best, a quality silk scarf would most definitely make her a very happy woman this very special day.

I'm sure you can be more creative than that. Take a scarf for example. It could be a perfect gift. How perfect? It's all down to the delivery and presentation.
We'll be posting a few tips and ideas to inspire your creativity soon. See you in a few days!!
Christmas Gift Guide: Style December 06, 2015 08:30
Year after year, buying gifts for your loved ones becomes a little trickier. For those of you looking to buy some beautiful and quality gifts for women who loves fashion and keeping their wardrobe up to date with classic pieces, we have compiled some of our favourites to give you some ideas and inspire. These might not be the exact pieces your sister, mum, best friend, wife, girl friend or any other ladies important in your life, but they may spark inspiration.
We suggest you focus on what you think they might like and scout around. Though our advise is to buy them early, have them wrapped up nicely and put them aside to reduce the stress level. Planning a party or a big get together in itself is stressful enough so planning ahead will definitely be a plus.
Enjoy the festive season!!
