Hi guys wishing you all a belated Happy Easter! Check out my new video (first video!!!) on my Youtube channel. I will be adding some new videos soon about daily life, fashion, food etc. Subscribe and leave a like if you’re feeling generous! The recipe is SUPER simple and tasty, which is always my two favourite things about recipes (and I’m sure yours too!).
I really meant to write this sooner but you know how it goes, distractions galore. But I’m back on track with a fresh post. My favourite items for March (oops almost over!) include birthday gifts, Banila “Clean it” makeup remover and Sleek Matte lippy. Ok so it’s a bit of an overlap from Feb/March but of these things were received in March so best to call it just that.
My amazing best friend in the UK sent me some goodies for my birthday. She was asking me questions such as “what is your favourite animal?” and “what kind of pet would you want to have?” At the time out of the blue but now it all makes sense…sneaky. I now have some moustache nail decals, which I will try soon.
When I first pressed the button on the top I jumped because not only did it light up but it let out a LOUD elephant noise.
You gotta have some elephant print tissues, I mean plain tissues are just boring. Plus NO ONE will ever mistake my tissues for their own. Then again, these are just too cute to use.
I picked up a Sleek matte lippy on my last UK trip and haven’t had a chance to wear it. But with some time to experiment I gave it a go.
Problem with matte lipsticks is that they are terribly drying unlike glossy colours. My recommendation is scrubbing your lips and prepping them by using lip balm beforehand and letting it absorb before applying matte anything.
Another of my faves is the Pop Art nail polish by Rimmel. I’ve been wearing this pretty non-stop as it’s easy to apply and looks great even on clear nails.
Birthday gift from my sister, neon orange is going to look great for this spring. Check out my outfit posts with the necklace here:
I received a tester while in Macau for Banila Clean It Zero. I had no idea what this product was when I saw it in Sasa and Bonjour. But after trying it I’m sold. It’s a kind of gel like consistency that you apply directly to your makeup-ed up face by massaging in. It’s a very weird feeling as you smudge it into your makeup but it really gets everything off. I suggest cotton pads/buds for eye makeup. It’s great alternative to oily makeup removers. I also use their primer finish powder which is awesome too.
Hope you enjoyed my March faves. What are you favourite March products/buys? Comment below x.
There are days where I just want to wear something really comfy but still be presentable in case I have to pop out of the house. So there is usually a trade off between looking great and feeling comfortable. Ever had that?
But I think I’ve stumbled upon a winning combination, printed leggings. So it’s not ground breaking but it does give you lot of options. On the days where I’m working mostly from home with some outside appearances I like to wear leopard print leggings.
Pair with a bun which is actually the first time I’ve tried this style. It works best if you have haven’t washed your hair in a couple of days, easier to keep in place. However, I did have to use a few pins, two elastic hair bands and some hair spray.
These were all self snaps which is actually a lot more difficult to do when you don’t have a shutter remote. I do have a tripod which does makes thing a lot easier but maybe time to invest in a remote? Or I’ll have to do some more running back and forth.
I think I earned a seat at the Mean Girl’s table as I was wearing pink on Wednesday.
I enjoyed a super pink Wednesday with Sassy Hong Kong. Easily the most pink day in my LIFE. It was a lot of fun working with such an amazing team: photographer Sabrina Sikora, makeup artist Smudge Makeup Artistry and hair stylist Ross Kwan.
I felt truly decked out in the brightest pinks possible. I loved trying outfits from Jack Wills, What the Frock and also Melissa Bui.
It was a supppppeeerrrr fun day with a lot of pink girliness going on. It was amazing to work with such a lovely team. For more behind the scenes pics you can check out my Instagram.
Enjoy your day! x
I’m so happy that Spring is finally here. It took some searching for something more Spring related but I did find it wandering around Kennedy Town this weekend. It took a train, walking, an elevator, an escalator and some steps to find some amazing trees with blossoming flowers signalling the change into Spring, yippee! Can you tell I’m extremely excited?
Although the temperature hasn’t exactly risen much the sun is starting to peek through very carefully. So I’m wearing a top which I got on my travels in Taiwan, a pair of black jeans and a wool hair because wow it’s windy in Hong Kong (fashionable and functional).
The top really suits me as I fell in love with the slogan”Let’s talk over coffee”. I’m a coffee addict which fits me very well. If I’m asked out for a drink with friends I’m more excited to go for a coffee or even a tea than to a bar/pub. Caffeine is what fuels me.

I now also have a Flickr account so feel free to check out my pics on there, I’m trying to learn a bit more about photography and share some of my adventures here in HK.
After some pretty foggy weather in Hong Kong finally some sunshine this week! So I took advantage of these small rays for this Spring outfit in the park. I picked up this long top/short dress from L.A.C.Y. Boutique in Macau along with these brown and blue riding boots (or at least that’s what I like to call them). The top is super comfortable and very shapely. The boots are quite comfortable and have an inner lining of fur which keep my feet super warm.
I love lace embellishments so was instantly attracted to this top, it adds a touch of detail. I wore a neon necklace which was my birthday present from my sister, thanks sis!
It’s the first time I’ve actually celebrated Chinese New Year in Hong Kong properly. This included a HUGE hot pot meal with my bf and his family. I learnt how to make gyoza (well I didn’t do well but I’m guessing practice is key). I also watched a lion dance yesterday outside my building. Was very cool to take some pics of that, you can check them out on my Flickr here: Chinese New Year 2015.

So I was approached with an interesting challenge the other day. It was such an interesting challenge I had to give it a try. In true Barney Stinson form “challenge accepted!”
The challenge was to create a look using one of these NFL jerseys. I watched the NFL halftime with Katy Perry this year and was really amazed. Have you watched it? If you haven’t go check it out here.
But back to the challenge. I chose a Dallas Cowboy jersey and here’s what I came up with:
A jersey is an awesome way to mix up your style, incorporating it into your outfit for day to day wear. You can get all your jersey and sports needs at Fanatics.com which can definitely help you with your game style, they have a lot of choice to choose from including hats!
I’ve haven’t tried putting together a sports luxe outfit before, the closest would be my red wooly hat with snake print sweater. The more I thought about it the harder it became, overthinking. But then I realised it’s easy, match it with a pair faux leather trousers, a biker jacket would look truly awesome! I love wedge sneakers and feel this would be a great way to add a sporty look but with a bit of heel without it being too obvious. To brighten it up I’d pick a neon coloured necklace to add that touch of colour.
This was a super fun challenge as it’s something I haven’t tried before but definitely thinking how to get this outfit in my wardrobe.
How would you create sports luxe outfit? Send me a link if you’re got one on your blog or show me on Polyvore.
I don’t post that often about my model work (not that often right?) but if I think it’s worth mentioning I will write on occasion. I am always excited and inspired by local talent in Hong Kong. For a place where finance is the key the ingredient, creativity is something that often gets overlooked (well that’s my feeling anyway). But working in the fashion industry, working for a fashion community website and as a freelance model I get chances to see the hidden gems of Hong Kong fashion industry.
Here’s a prime example, last week I worked for Angus Tsui SS15 preview where his collection was launched at Cocktail in Causeway Bay. You could see that he’s gained some great coverage from winning the Eco Chic Design Award alumni prize.
His pieces use up-cycling, a way to reuse surplus materials in a new way. I like eco-design, giving new life to material seen as a waste product. If more brands used this idea I think we’d have a lot less waste. There are some amazing textures created by combining these materials.
Here’s a few designs I wore at the shop last week. I loved the interesting designs, truly inspirations. You can check out more of Angus Tsui’s designs here: https://www.facebook.com/AngusTsui.HK and don’t forget to wish him good luck in London as that is his next stop :)
When you think of Macau, what comes to mind is casinos, Portuguese buildings and egg-tarts…well at least is does for me. You would never think of derelict factory buildings or sea sinking abandoned buildings, it’s not something that they put on any tour that’s for sure.
So imagine my surprise when reaching Macau to be told about Coloane. I’ve been to Macau a few times, through different Avenidas of the Portuguese influenced areas and casinos…lots of casinos. OK so maybe Coloane isn’t secret but not exactly the first thing on the tourist route. It’s the quieter side with more residential areas.
Macau has all of the it’s streets and roads with the Cantonese name and the Portuguese name. Unlike Hong Kong where nearly every street or road has a Cantonese name and an English name. Trust me, in Macau don’t expect the taxi drivers to know the Portuguese names, they will look just as confused as you try to explain in English.
Here’s me in one of the many outfits that day, I loved the mix of textures, greys and blacks contrasting with my bright red lips.
This is the designer and one of the owner of L.A.C.Y Boutique Milk, the tall person standing next to her is me.
Devil red lipstick to go with these daring outfits :)
I don’t quite remember how many outfits that we shot that day but I definitely remember the background, an abandoned factory building. I loved the urban industrialised feeling, cannot wait to see how it turns out.
Here’s just a sneak peek from the camera view of one of the first outfits and locations, a woodshed:
It was a super chilly day but worth the trip. I really look forward to the photos and enjoyed my unusual day trip to Macau.
One of the perks of being a blogger is being lucky I mean super lucky to be invited to watch a fashion show. Each show is different, different styles and different experiences.
This year I was invited to the Young Fashion Designers’ 2015 which happens every year in Hong Kong Fashion Week. I went to represent MyFashionStage.com which is an honour :).
Here are a few of my favourite designs of the night including what I wore.
