Greetings from Hong Kong! We are currently back in this amazing city for a week as we prepare to leave the country for good (For those who are new to my blog, I lived in Hong Kong for 3 years before we started to travel full time from January this year).

Hong Kong: 5 spots in Sheung Wan that you cannot miss

Having lived in Sheung Wan for 2.5 years, I’m totally biased but I do believe it’s one of the coolest neighbourhoods on the Hong Kong Island. A perfect blend of traditional Hong Kong lifestyle and western hip hangouts, Sheung Wan is one of the best areas to live & eat – and visit if you’re a tourist! Here are my…

My Wardrobe Staples

At-home outfits with bralettes

Once you go bralette, you never go back. Last year I started to incorporate bralettes into my wardrobe. At first, it was just me following a trend (2016 was the year of the bralette, they were literally all over Instagram and Pinterest), but then they became sort of a necessity. Feminine, comfortable and versatile, bralettes are now the foundation of…

Current Obsession: Handmade Facial Soaps

If I had to think of a keyword for 2017 so far, it would be “simplify”. This year was all about decluttering, buying less and downsizing. In the beauty department, I made a conscious effort to minimize the amount of products that I use on the daily basis. Do we really need to layer 6 different products onto our face…

Office Life: 6 productive ways to spend your lunch break

If you’re a morning person like me, you probably pour so much energy during the first hours at work that by the time lunch break you sort of need to lie down.

Hong Kong Cafes: Polygon Cafe

There’s a few cafes that I find myself going repeatedly. Mainly because I like trying new places, and secondly, because many times the experience is good but not “great” = not worth going again. Polygon Cafe is different though – they managed to create a very relaxed and cozy ambience that make it the perfect lazy Saturday hangout. I love…

Hong Kong Escapades: Big Wave Bay Beach

A couple of weekends ago, we took advantage of a rare sunny weekend here in Hong Kong (someone explain to me why it’s raining so much this year?!) and went hiking from Dragon’s Back Hike Trail to Big Wave Bay Beach. We set off relatively early (8am) hoping that we would arrive to the beach just in time for lunch.…

Amber Coffee Brewery (Hong Kong)

When a trendy cafe opens just 3-4 blocks from your house, the excitement is real. Last weekend finally made my way to new kid on the block “Amber Coffee Brewery” in Sheung Wan (Hong Kong). The cafe features a modern chic decor blue and gold accents and incorporates Chinese art details such as the beautiful ink ceramic cups and blue…

Hong Kong Walks: Sheung Wan

Home is where the heart is… I’ve been living in Hong Kong for almost 3 years now. When we were apartment hunting, I visited many neighbourhoods on the Hong Kong Island side and I gotta say Sheung Wan was love at first sight. I knew that I wanted to live here and were lucky to find an apartment we liked…
