Tis the Season: Feeding HK Cookbook


Remember the bread run I did months ago where we collected bread that would have otherwise been thrown away to provide to the needy? The organisers behind Feeding HK have recently released a cookbook to highlight how easy it is to create nutritious, affordable and effortless recipes that can be used to create delicious dishes at home. These dishes can be prepared with limited ingredients, equipment and space and all can be made for HK$10 or less per portion. Isn't this the perfect Christmas gift for the budding chef while also spreading word about a good cause? The book is available for sale via www.feedinghk.org for HK$200 where proceeds from sales directly support Feeding HK’s mission to fight hunger in the city and reduce food waste.

Tis the Season: TATCHA Indigo Collection


If you're looking for a special gift for the Beauty Geek, check out TATCHA's new Indigo Collection. I was introduced to the brand earlier this year and loved their products. I've been using their serum diligently every day and their hydrating face masks are such a treat to put on after a weary day. The brand was developed to introduce the secret to geisha's gorgeous porcelain skin where founder Victoria Tsai worked with teams of scientists and scholars to decipher the rituals and ingredients of a 200-year-old manuscript that talked about the daily regimes of geisha.

According to TATCHA, during the Edo Period, samurai would wear a layer of indigo-dyed cotton beneath their armor to help heal injuries. A family of Japanese farmers learnt of this secret and they started experimenting with herbal recipes using indigo to calm skin ailments. This farm is still growing and harvesting indigo today and this is where TATCHA sources its indigo for the collection. The plant is used to make a concentrated botanical extract and used in the skincare. Even though the products have a blue hue, the brand says that it will not permanently stain skin or fabric so don't worry about looking like a smurf!

The TATCHA Indigo Collection is available at Joyce Beauty. It comprises the following:

INDIGO Soothing Renewal Treatment HK$850 / 15ml
Ideal for All Skin Types, especially sensitive, inflamed or irritated skin consistent with symptoms of dermatitis, eczema and rosacea.
