It's been ages my lovely ones. After five years of almost daily blogging, I've kind of lost my spark for it and decided to take a break and I'm still not too sure if I'm ready for the daily posts but think this site might transform more into bits and bobs that catches my eye and other musings if I am so inclined. (Wow, check out that run on sentence. It HAS been a while since I've written editorially.) Anyway, what triggered this return? The Miss Marble Jar from Lorenza Bozzoli. As I've gotten older, I'm getting more inclined towards home stuff and less obsessed with fashion (although food is still a priority as evidenced by my IG and FB Page). I just wanted to share and squeee over this beautiful marble jar comprising two different types of marble in a simple elegant form. Wouldn't this be great to put some jewellery, love notes or kitchen spices? Soon to be available at the WallpaperSTORE* for €225

emoji hats and was raving about them but the Bello Yellow collection might just have topped that one. The collection will launch exclusively at On Pedder on July 9th right before the movie comes out.

Had the trip from hell last week when I was stranded in Shanghai for over 24 hours but I did get one consolation prize which was to have dinner at the lovely Fu He Hui, the vegetarian restaurant by chef-patron Tony Lu. I had a terrific meal last time at Fu1039 so my colleague decided to take me out for an impromptu dinner at this latest addition to the Fu family which recently won the highest new entry award at Asia's 50 Best Restaurants. Unfortunately, my experience was marred by the constant checking of my flight status so I think a return visit is definitely needed. Check out the dishes I had after the cut.
We started with the avocado, mango, tomato and crisp cone.
Longan, walnut and papaya soup
Mash taro dumpling, spinach and pumpkin sauce
Chinese yam, termite mushroom and soy. Loved the presentation of this dish. It was surprisingly filling and at halfway through the meal, we were wondering if we would have space for more food.
Eggplant roll, kailan, white sesame and teriyaki sauce. Easily my favourite of the night as the kailan gave this roll and unexpected crunch and the sauce was not overly sweet as one would expect.
Lotus seeds, honey peas and black fungus
Fried rice, egg and dried turnip. Didn’t manage to take photos of my dessert as I received notification at this point that my flight was further delayed and I just collapsed into a ball of utter frustration.

I love stationery. There's something so fun about having cute fun pieces to write with or writing on beautiful notebooks. When I heard that Swedish design stationery brand kikki.K opened their first shop, I decided to ask founder Kristina Karlsson her thoughts on HK and what she spent her prize money from a business award on.
Hong Kong Fashion Geek: What is on your lust list?
Kristina Karlsson: A renovation at my Swedish kitchen! I absolutely love cooking and would like some more space, to learn how to play the piano properly and a ring by Swedish designer Efva Attling.
HKFG: What’s your favourite thing about Hong Kong?
KK: It would have to be the beautiful food! I’m an absolute foodie, and love discovering new places to eat wherever I’m travelling. I also love the endless options for shopping, which is why I’m so excited to have kikki.K in Harbour City!
HKFG: Tell us your secret ambition?
KK: I’m not sure it’s much of a secret now, but I cannot wait to have beautiful kikki.K stores in all my favourite cities right around the world! It’s so exciting to have opened in Hong Kong – now I can’t wait for London, Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul, Copenhagen, Tokyo… it feels like we’re just getting started!
HKFG: Your ultimate indulgence food or go-to food when you’re stressing out?
KK: I don’t really have a go-to food when I’m stressed, but perhaps my little indulgence which I absolutely love – Wine & Cheese. There’s nothing like enjoying a beautiful glass of wine and some delicious cheese!
HKFG: What is your biggest investment purchase?
KK: I absolutely love Swedish design, so I spend on beautiful Scandinavian designer pieces. I’ll always remember one of my favourites - my Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair – because I spent the prize money from a business award on it many years ago. It was such a lovely reward.
HKFG: What is your worst nightmare?
KK: My worst nightmare is anyone being sick. Life is short & health is so, so important.
HKFG: Last thing you think about before going sleep?
KK: I think about all the things I’m grateful for. My family, my home, the warmth, the bed, my children being asleep, a business that I love. The list is endless; there are so many things to be grateful for.
HKFG: What is your favourite phone app?
KK: One of my favourites would have to be Instagram – there are so many inspiring people to follow, and it’s also a great way to create a visual record of special trips and adventures while you’re on the go. I absolutely love printing my Instagram photos too (with Create with kikki.K – create.kikki-k.com). You can check out the kikki.K Instagram account for lots of inspiration too – it’s @kikkiK_loves.

Every year, I say I won't lust after their collaborations and each year I admit defeat and end up buying pieces. I'm just throwing in the towel early this year and saying that come autumn, I'll definitely be trying to get my hands on this collection. <3

I'd never use cosmetics that contains peat before so when Kabi Organics, a Scandinavian brand asked if I would be interested in trying their face mask, I figured why not? Handmade in Estonia, the face mask claims to "invigorates blood flow, rejuvenates skin cells, removes harmful substances, restores the skin’s natural pH balance and provides the skin with beneficial biologically active substances."
So what was my experience? Well, the instructions stated that I should add a 1-3mm thick layer to my face which I found a tad difficult as unlike clay masks where you can glob it on, peat breaks into bits making hard to really apply a thick layer. The other thing was that the peat got under my nails and while washing it off, created a bit of a mess in my sink.
Once you take away the messiness, I did find the mask to be a good experience. My face did get a little red after applying the mask but this apparently is normal as the mask stimulates subcutaneous blood flow. After the redness though, my face did seem brighter and softer the next day. Definitely worth a shot if you're looking for an unconventional face mask.
