Tulum on a budget

Tulum has been on my bucket list for a few years now. Since we live in Hong Kong, it always seemed like a far dream to visit Mexico as it is more reasonable to explore Asia or Africa destinations from here. However, at the beginning of the year I had a YOLO moment of if not now when?. Luckily, my husband was on board with the idea so we planned a 2 week holiday in Mexico (first Tulum, a quick stop in Cancun, and then Valladolid) followed by a short trip to Cuba (photo diary from Havana coming soon!).

Things to do in Quarry Bay (+ some Insta-worthy spots you don’t want to miss!)

Recently I spent a whole afternoon in Quarry Bay, one of the most underrated neighbourhoods (in my opinion).

Below are some my favourite spots in Quarry Bay. Whether you go on your own, on a date, or with friends, you’ll have fun…

A Photowalk in Haji Lane (Singapore)

Greetings from Singapore! I’m back in this beautiful city for a short solo business trip. My hotel is in the heart of Kampong Glam, an area that has become a hipster hangout full of little cafes and boutiques. Every morning before heading to the office, I decided to go on random photowalks with my DSLR – it is a form of meditation for me and it forces me to pay attention to the little details. There’s so much beauty around us, if only…

Coconut oil as an eye make up remover

Today I wanna talk about one of my favourite things on earth, ever: Coconut Oil! I even attempted to start a blog to talk exclusively about coconut oil a few years ago – it was called sheiscoconuts.com (true story). Obviously that did not last long because well, I eventually ran out of things to write about it. BUT my love for it has not changed and I continue to spread the word about it at every opportunity. I know that by now a…

Cafe Kitsune (Tokyo)

While walking around Minami Aoyama during my last Tokyo trip, I stumbled upon Cafe Kitsune. I had seen pictures all over Instagram of the Parisian Cafe Kitsune and was so pleasantly surprised that there was one in Tokyo too. I had to go inside and try their coffee! The shop front is so photogenic. Try passing by it without taking a few pictures for your Instagram – impossible. The outside seating area features bamboo panels that give the space an airy…

Elephant Grounds (Hong Kong)

Last weekend we decided to check out the recently opened Elephant Grounds Cafe in Wanchai. I had visited the tiny shop in Gough Street (Central) a while ago and I remember thinking this cafe deserved a bigger space. Happy to see it finally happened! It was already 5pm so I decided to go for a non caffeine option and try their Matcha Latte. It was really delicious and super filling. I got some weird looks when I put my latte over the…
