I have a thing for products made with natural ingredients. Also handmade skincare, specially anything made with essential oils, because they all smell gorgeous and soothing, doesn’t feel artificial at all. Also, I don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals that might irritate my skin. I have written about another Balinese aromatherapy company in my previous post. Ezenssi store in Stanley I have discovered this local … Continue reading Hong Kong’s natural ingredient skin care company – Ezenssi by Carol
From left to right – Utama Spice Yoga Mat Spray & Aromatherapy Booklet I used to go to Pure Yoga when I was in Hong Kong.

The MTV movie awards 2016 held on the 9th April in Burbank, California was star studded. Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne, and Gigi Hadid all stunned in black.

I was having dinner with my girlfriends last week, and compare to our early 20’s, we are now so much more at ease and so much more comfortable being ourselves, now that we are approaching the big number 30.
We are a lot more at ease, feeling great just being ourselves because we care less what other people think of us; we make more money and hold more important position in our jobs. Most importantly, we know how to navigate through life our own way.
Less is more – We no longer buy as many cheap and fast fashion, no more forever 21 dresses nor colourful Kate Spade and Juicy Couture; and more Chanel, Céline and Louboutins. What’s not to love?
Here are 12 items that I think are worth to invest in for a grown up wardrobe.
A pair of quality black leather pumps
“Good shoes take you to good places” ever heard of that?
So a pair of beautiful high heels will bring you to beautiful places. Invest in your basics.
“A woman with good shoes is never ugly” – Coco Chanel
Then a practical and very Parisian ballet flats. Repetto would be my go to store, provides just enough toe cleavage! Otherwise, Anna Baiguera’s annette style is a great alternative, but the sole is rather thin. You might want to take them to the shoemaker to put on a thin rubber sole before your first wear to extend the life of your flats.
Dermalogica Facial Treatment Review – Fenwick Newcastle I normally treat my skin to regular facial treatment once every 4 weeks, but since I have moved from Hong Kong to Newcastle. I haven’t got the chance to do so at all. And here in the UK, having a facial isn’t something as popular and accessible as in Hong Kong, also not as many choices. Because … Continue reading Dermalogica Facial Treatment Review – Fenwick Newcastle

Only about 15% more than the pricing in the motherland of LUSH – The United Kingdom! … Continue reading LUSH’s “No Drought” & DIY dry shampoo how-to
