The newly launched Gran Maestria looking like a super robot!
The lovely people at Nespresso kindly invited me over to their store at IFC Hong Kong for a testing section to try out their - now officially unlimited - limited edition flavours they have just released to the public. These new permanent members are Vanilio (vanila), Ciocattino (dark chocolate) and Caramelito(caramel). Welcome welcome!
For those who do not know, Nespresso offers - once 16, now 19 - different coffee “Grand Cru” arabicas and robustas. And every Spring, Autumn and Christmas Nespresso releases special Grand Crus into the existing range for a limited period to its club members, i.e. previous customers. Now, the particular ones that are released towards Christmas time are called “Variations”, which are flavoured coffee and are made based on the Livanto grand cru. The Vanilio was released on 2006, Caramelito in 2008, and Ciocattino in 2011, but due to the repeated requests for a comeback by customers, they are now here to stay! I’ve tried them all last friday and loved all three flavours! I especially like the Caramelito, which is so rich and smooth and super creamy!
Speaking of these lovely Variations, wondering what we are getting for this Christmas? For the very first time, Nespresso let you vote for it!
Say hello to Cioccorosso (chocolate with red fruit), Masala Chai (chai spices) and Liminto (lime and mint), because one of these will be made available this winter! All you club members can now vote for your favorite from June 13th to June 26th at www.nespresso.com/vote. I think the Masala Chai sounds very nice for winter, which one will you pick?

Hi guys, this was what I wore yesterday out to the movies. We went to watch ‘Now You See Me’ which was an okay film if you don’t think too hard about things being impossible. I actually am a sucker for magic but as this is more like a reality-ish kind of film rather than the Harry Potter style (I’m a hopeless HP fan), it makes you doubt a little bit when things just aren’t right. It was still fun to watch though. But then again I’m not here to review a movie so let’s get back to the question: Do you think I look okay with my hair up?

Hey guys! Just to quickly update you with what I wore the other day to a meeting! It was so summery and nice I’ve decided to swap out the usual classic shirt and opted for a printed blouse for a more cheerful and elegant approach. I then paired it with a faux leather panel skirt for some added texture. The slightly sheer blouse in contrast with the polished leather really worked to give more depth to the outfit. To finish the look I topped it up with a pair of purple ankle strap heels which instantly brought out the turquoise-ish hue of the top, making you look all refreshed and ready!
I’ve been recently introduced to a brand new local brand I can’t wait to share with you all! The Hong Kong born talent Mak Chun Ting (a.k.a. Anias) graduated from Studio Berçot in Paris and has decided to start her very own label, JOURDEN. Its Autumn Winter 2013 debut collection, which was successfully launched at Paris Fashion Week, consists of a number of borrowed-from-the-boys classics and skirts with strong feminine silhouettes. The play with fabrics on classics together with the juxtaposition of masculine and feminine did not only left me in awe – it blew up my mind. My absolute favourite has to be the bourgeois hunting coat, it is fitted in XXL and brilliantly made with multi-frills weaved in and out of a custom-quilted fabric. Seriously, I can stare at it all day. All fabrics are strictly sourced from Italy too, making the collection an ultimate investment for, as Anais herself describes, the ‘perfectly imagined modern wardrobe’!
JOURDEN is soon available at:
Liger – 1F, No.11 Pak Sha Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
EDIT – GF, 67 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong
For those who are not in Hong Kong, not to worry! JOURDEN will be creating a capsule collection for Anthropologie - that’s right, ANTHROPOLOGIE – later on and will be sold in their stores worldwide! EXCITED!

Hi there, throwing right at you another outfit post taken in the weekend! We had a very hot and sunny one and therefore I happily rocked the new top and denim playsuit I purchase at the Topshop preview! My clutch is a combination of the 202 Factory clear clutch and American Apparel pouch, which I think makes a perfect summer clutch. There is just enough space left for your phone or shades too! Summer always calls for more colour so I’ve add some members to the arm party, a lovely pink bracelet from Lancel and also bangles from Sal y Limon. Speaking of Sal y Limon, they have just opened their first store in Hong Kong at The One so do check them out!
