It’s been a while since we had a catch-up with some Instagram fodder for company and I felt kinda nostalgic for the genuinely personal and homegrown element of lifestyle blogging and blogs in general. So here we are, let’s catch up over a sugary tea or festive beverage of your choice!

December in Hong Kong is sun-soaked, vividly coloured and only cold when the seafront air and aircon combine to wreak havoc on my hair. It’s really strange spending Christmas away from home and even more so when it’s celebrated slightly differently to what I’m used to. Nevertheless, our staff Christmas market in the office was so fun – see those Markus Lupfer kiss Christmas cocktails and the smores craft table?! What a dream.
Sophia and I visited a cat café a few weekends ago and of course I Instagrammed the heck out of that. These sorts of cafés are kinda controversial and hush hush in Hong Kong still, but I was pleasantly surprised at how roomy the actual place was and even more happy that the cats themselves were really chilled out and lapping up human interaction. 100% earmarked for another visit!
I bought a Saint Laurent Cabas Chyc clutch the other day! I’ve already posted a ‘review’ of it if you’re interested, but I’m seriously in love with her. Work perks at their very best… During my downtime from exciting shopping, cute cats, etc. I’m currently enjoying just cosying up in my apartment in my The White Company cashmere socks and playing Pokemon Omega Ruby – srsly, what a darn good remake of the best Pokemon generation. As always, please feel free to add my Nintendo Friend Code and leave me a comment with yours! 3883-5630-0644
If you’re also in Hong Kong, you 100% need to go to Kowloon Tong and see this gem of a Christmas tree and grotto at Festival Walk. It’s so beautiful that I’m tempted to go back for another peek. I also spied some awesome street art in Soho, Central, ‘grammed my new boots down Hollywood Road and hugged a Pikachu at the Pikachu Parade in TST. Living the dream guys, I’m living the dream.
