Aura Portable Blender Review – Healthy Lifestyle on the Go

I recently added the Aura Portable Blender to my kitchen arsenal, and I must say, it’s been a game-changer for my busy lifestyle. I would never have thought I needed a blender in my lifestyle, but this is not your ordinary kitchen blender. This sleek and compact device has revolutionized the way I enjoy my favorite smoothies and shakes, and it’s now an essential part of my daily routine. Undoubtedly, this is Singapore’s most powerful and portable blender , wireless , rechargeable using USB and blending in under 10 sec! 

At First Glance

The Aura Blender is a lightweight , weighing between 395g (with bottle cap) and 730g (with motor base) and a compact size of 19.4cm height x 6.8cm diameter. Probably the length of your regular drinking water bottle.  I have also added on Aura insulated sleeve so that my Aura Blender is protected and keep my cold drinks cold and warm drinks toasty warm.  The weight is merely coming from The AuraXtreme™ borosilicate glass jar. 

Using It

1. Portability: This blender is truly portable. It’s small enough to fit into most cup holders, making it convenient to take with you wherever you go. Whether you’re in the car, on a hike, or at the office, you can blend your favorite drinks without any hassle.

2. Powerful Motor: Despite its small size, the Aura Portable Blender boasts a surprisingly powerful motor that can handle tough ingredients like frozen fruits and ice cubes. The Aura Portable Blender’s AuraVortex™ blends at an incredible speed of 25,000 RPM. Equipped with the Aura Portable Blender’s Aura Nutri Extractor™ blades can crush most fruits and even ice! 

3. Rechargeable Battery: One of the standout features of this blender is its rechargeable battery. It comes with a long-lasting lithium-ion battery that provides multiple blending sessions on a single charge. No need to worry about finding an electrical outlet when you’re on the move . There is a build in indicator to check on the battery level too. 

4. Easy to Clean: Cleaning the Aura Portable Blender is a breeze. Its detachable components are dishwasher-safe, and you can also clean them by simply adding some water and a drop of dish soap, then running the blender for a few seconds.

5. Safety Features: The Aura Blender has a built-in safety feature which ensure the blades do not function unless the jar is firmly secured to the motor base.

6. Convertible into a water bottle. It comes with an additional cap to convert this blender into a water bottle, There is a top handle for easy carrying too! 

Loving It 

With my Aura Blender, now I can have breakfast on the go, especially if I am pressed for time for work. What’s even more convenient is its ability to transform items I find in my fridge into delicious drinks or snacks. Got some leftover fruits, yogurt, or greens? Simply toss them into the Aura Blender, and you’ve got a wholesome smoothie or a nutritious snack in no time. It’s a fantastic way to minimize food waste and maximize the use of fresh ingredients. In fact, as big C is heading for the PSLE, I am piling on her Vitamin C intake daily with fruit shakes! 

Video review :

The Aura Portable Blender has not only improved my own eating habits but has also positively impacted my children’s snacking regime. I can easily whip up nutritious and delicious fruit smoothies for them as an after-school snack or a quick treat. They love the vibrant colors and flavors, and I’m delighted to provide them with a healthy alternative to store-bought snacks.

In conclusion, the Aura Portable Blender has not only elevated the quality of my meals and snacks but has also seamlessly integrated into my daily life, offering convenience, nutrition, and versatility wherever I go. You may have the regular traditional blender, but it takes more effort to prepare smoothies and shake. With the Aura Aura Portable Blender, making smoothies and shakes is so effortless! It’s a game-changer for anyone with an active and fast-paced lifestyle, and it’s a fantastic addition to your family’s snacking routine!

Heart Studio Term 3 Still Life Water Colour Painting

It has been a while since small C did water colour painting at Heart Studio and finally he did still life using watercolour painting for the final artwork for Term 3. For the first week, the kids have to choose objects to be featured in their art work and drawing it directly on the art paper. Thereon, they learn how to blend the water colour  – personally I like the water colour medium as its so fluid and natural! 

Thereafter, week 2 and 3 were for blending and creating gradation all the objects in water colour and week 4 was dedicated for the finer details and outlining of the artworks! This was another of small C’s favourites as he get to draw and paint the objects and characters he likes including a Milo truck!

Another fun theme at  Heart Studio , drawing of Game Character! I am sure all kids were able to relate to this theme very well, and they can decide which character they want to draw, gender , hair style, expression, and the character’s object as well!  As always. the teachers at Heart Studio will prepare lots of sample for the kids to seek inspiration from.

Newton Show Lab – first time in Singapore, real lab experience!

We are not travelling much this June holidays, so instead of letting the boys bum at home, watch non-stop tv, on digital devices and endless bickering, I signed them up for 5 full day camp with Newton Show Summer Camp   They have a plethora of summer camps to choose from – from science, art, cooking, robotic and a multi activity camp – there is something for the diverse interests in kids. This time I chose Newton Show Lab Summer camp for them.

This was my boys’ 4th camp with Newton Show, and their first ever doing Newton Show Lab, first time in Singapore – real lab experience complete with lab coat and goggles! Each child has all equipment and own science station led by their professors!

For other camp offerings, you can check out my previous camp reviews ( since small C is 5 year old! ) Think the only one the boys have not tried thus far is the cooking and art camp! 

Harry Potter Science Camp 2020 

Maker Camp 2021

Multi- Activity Camp 2022

As science is a mandatory subject in Primary 3, I think its good to ignite their interest not just in a regular science camp but one with real lab experiments (complete with lab coat and goggles too!) Check out all the amazing activities and experiments offered on all 5 day of camp!

Day 1

The boys witnessed some chemical reaction done by the professors, witness how iodine changes colour with starch and made their own dough to use it to build their own molecular structure. 

Day 2

They learn about acids and bases and did a baking soda challenge.

In the afternoon, they learn food sciences where they made their own edible cottage cheese and learn how to keep the food fresh.

Day 3

They did magic jar workshop and learn all about sink and float

Day 4

They made their own perfume and artificial snow and experimented with lights too! 


Day 5

The boys made slime, learn about density and did experiments with yeast! 


Camp fee starts from SGD 400, for full day camp, it is an all-inclusive camp – all materials, 2 snacks, lunch, t-shirt, photo, certificate and prizes included and they will provide daily photo updates. I totally appreciate their effort to compile and update the parents on a daily basis of the happenings in camp so that we can talk about it at the end of the day and share their excitement too!

Heart Studio Term 2- Reimagined Famous Paintings

This term with Heart Studio small C got to learn about all the famous paintings from Mona Lisa, Sunflowers, Girl with a Pearl Earring, Frida Kahlo , The Son of Man and many more. Small C chose to recreate Mona Lisa as he saw this at a Lego Exhibition before, and was a painting familiar to him. 

However, it is not merely copying the original version, but incorporating different elements of art,  – fauvism , expressionism or impressionism.

Week 1 was always dedicated to learning about the theme of this artwork which is all the famous paintings around the world, and doing a prelim sketch of the final artwork. I love that Heart Studio  art classes for kids does not dictate what they have to draw for eg, small C drew anime-inspired eyes onto Mona Lisa! 

Week 2, is to turn the sketch done in week 1 on to the actual artpaper, following by colour choices for the background


Thereafter week 3 onwards, small C started to incorporate his chosen style of art for the back ground to his Mona Lisa before finishing this off in week 4. 


I think its the first time we actually recreated a real famous painting and this theme also allowed small C to get to know many famous paintings of the world.

Giveaway of $𝟏𝟎𝟎 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐩𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐯𝐨𝐮𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐫 from Blissful Moon Bakery to 𝗢𝗡𝗘 lucky winner! 

To find a unique cake for a teenager be it girl or boy (more so for boy ) is a really difficult task! Cartoon theme are too kiddish, no super heroes etc, but I am so glad I found a unique cake at Blissful Moon Bakery 

Cakes, according to BlissfulMoon Bakery‘s bakers, should make you happy and blissful. The combination of blissful, moon and cakes will ultimately give you joy and happiness. As you gently consume their slice of cake, savoring every flavor and aroma, they want you to feel blissful. The bakers at Blissful Moon are ordinary people who have a deep love for baking in the moonlight ( I can totally relate to this as #mypreciouzkidsdaddy bakes at midnight too!) 

Design wise, they do a minimalist approach but their cakes are aesthetically designed , affordable, healthier with only the freshest and premium quality ingredients used.  I totally fell in love with Grey Space Astronaut Cake as its perfect for my eldest sending the message – Reach for the Stars! 

For ladies and girls, there were so many dreamy cakes that you can order, of course the choices are much much more.

 Ordering was also seamless via their website, and they pride themselves as the Number 1 Cake Delivery in Singapore.

I ordered the Classic 8″ cake and it arrived in good order in this beautiful see-thru box. Also as part of celebration of my 14th year as a mom , I also received a box of 12 Shades of blue floral cupcakes. You have to check out their super beautiful cupcakes too, all too pretty to be eaten! 

So the next test is whether it tastes as good as it looks! I requested for Chocolate Raspberry for the cake and Speculoos Crunch for the cupcakes, and it did not disappoint, so moist n not too overly sweet as their cakes are 50% less sweet than typical cakes . Their cakes are frosted with fresh whipped cream to ensure the softness of the texture.

Heart Studio Term 2 – all about perspectives 3D vs 2D

We have been with Heart Studio for more than 1 year now, more than 10 art projects, there is never one that is the same, no repetitions. Every art work,  the kids are expose to different aspects of art and this term is no different – they learn about 3D Paper Sculpture and the different perspectives.  What makes it even more interesting is that they built the 3D model on the first lesson, and then subsequently transferred into a 2D art work. 

From the different materials provided to build the model, small C build his model using different shapes and sizes and also vegetations. Week 2 is the most interesting in my opinion, transforming the 3D model into a 2D artwork from 3 different perspectives – top, front and side by viewing via a viewfinder made the creative art teachers. 

Thereafter week 3 onwards, small C started with colour blending of the different drawn structure using the colour scheme chosen by small C. He chose blue, black and brown and blending the colours in different proportion/mix to achieve colour blending effect. 


So for this term , its not just 1 art work but 2 but of course, we couldn’t have 2D without the 3D. Especially for younger ones where school commitment isn’t too heavy, I truly believe learning art is also a form of relaxation and focus. Especially for a very active child like small C, he is always every where and all about, but for 75 minute a week at Heart Studio, he truly “slow down” and take time to draw and paint which is something very lacking in our fast paced modern world be it schooling or work!

Heart Studio – Inspired by Takashi Murakami

I can’t tell you how excited small C was when the second Heart Studio project for term 1 with Heart Studio was inspired by Takashi Murakami. Takashi Murakami is a famed artist widely recognized for his ability to adapt the aesthetics of Japanese traditional art to operate within the context of popular culture. Inspired by his work, this final project of Term 1 features bright colours and repeated motifs/patterns. 

As small C is very much into Japanese anime recently , he quickly chose to base this to the popular anime Naruto. However, we need to realise that we are not doing anime or Naruto but Takashi Murakami, so we need to incorporate bright colours and repeated motifs/patterns to stay true to the project’s theme

After sketching for the first lesson and learning about the artist, week 2 and 3 was to draw, paint and add more repeated patterns/motif. Small C truly enjoy this project as he could draw his favourite Naruto character and bringing his favourite character come to life


For the final week, are the finishing touches and also repeated patterns/motifs with more emphasis.

Small C truly enjoyed drawing and painting his favourite character  – Naruto and I loved how the teacher allowed him the freedom to draw what he enjoyed however, she was also mindful to draw inspiration from Takashi Murakami and incorporate it into small C’s drawing. This art work will definitely be small C’s favourite drawing as he finally drew something close to his heart.
