A Step You Can't Take Back

It's been a long time since I have had a proper time to sit down, think about life and blog away my feelings. It feels surprisingly refreshing to just sit here and update you all on some of my thoughts this summer. Time flies, doesn't it?

Summer in Hong Kong is always full of happiness and ultimately, sadness, because let's face it- it never lasts long enough. I've been into watching movies lately (which is something I've never had the time to do when at university) and I've fallen in love with the movie Begin Again. Kiera Knightley plays a singer songwriter discovered by a record label manager with his own problems, and they share an amazing connection and an even more amazing sense of music.

Have you heard the song "Lost Stars" and "A Step You Can't Take Back"? It describes my mood these days perfectly. The feeling of being lazy at home, lying on the couch with my dog and my best furry friend is just… simply zen.


I've recently been into buying bikinis, of all sorts of clothing that I can be obsessed with! It's not like I have the perfect body for bikinis, and I'm working hard to exercise all my desserts off in the gym three times a week! Nonetheless, I've been browsing for a lot of colourful and beautiful bikinis on the web and here are some of my favourites so far.




I don't know if you get this feeling too, but sometimes I feel shy when someone talks about wearing bikinis. It feels awkward sometimes, especially if no one around you wears bikinis to the pool or the beach. But I have to admit, they're so cute and fun in a way, so it really makes it fun if you take lots of photos with your friends during a fun day at the beach.

I also have good news for all you lovely people reading this! I'm also going to be doing a bikini giveaway soon in this blog! It's from a high quality, top notch company and you're going to love their swimwear and bikinis!

Let me know what you think of bikinis - how often do you wear them?

Wordans | making your own DIY t-shirt!

Recently, I have been wanting to make my own customized t-shirt as a gift to one of my special friend. He loves cats and kittens, and we both agreed that this unusual, and somewhat silly picture below would look amazing on a blue or grey tee. I looked around for a website to make my customized DIY t-shirt, and found the awesome website https://www.wordans.co.uk/ which specialises in high-quality, well-made t-shirts and clothing that can be fully customized. 


Their online design platform is really simple to use- all I had to do was upload my image, decide which brand of t-shirt I wanted and voila, I could place my order. The whole process took less than 20 minutes and their website is just fantastic. I'm most impressed with the range of t-shirt brands that they offer, which includes American Apparel, Fruit of Loom, Gildan, Anvil and ATC- you name it, they've probably got it, at many different colours too. Frankly speaking, I'm already happy with anything with American Apparel on their label.

After waiting for around 1 week, I received my t-shirt, freshly printed and shipped all the way from France!


As you can see, the kitten from my picture printed exactly as it should on my new grey blue t-shirt. The quality of the printing is excellent, and as good as it gets, and it seems like it won't wash off easily unlike some of the more cheaper options for t-shirt printing that you can get out there. The colour of the t-shirt compared to what I saw online was also similar, meaning that what you make is REALLY what you'll get. The shirt is also made of cotton and is very thick, unlike some other poor-quality shirts that you sometimes find out there.

I can't find anything bad to say about Wordans and their t-shirt printing shop. Wordans is trustworthy and made sure I received my shirt on time,  I always give my honest opinions, but this t-shirt is truly high-quality, comfortable and best of all, it's completely your own design. It would be a great idea for artists or hobbyists to print their own drawings on a t-shirt and wear them around!

Thank you Wordans for making me one happy girl because the t-shirt I made turned out to be amazing and I'm just very impressed by their quality and customer service. I'd definitely use it again! Don't forget to check out their shop and try them next time you need to give a special gift to someone, or need help making t-shirts for camps and school trips.

Let me know- what did you think of my personalised t-shirt with the dancing kitten?

Song of the day: Wouldn't it be nice- The Beach Boys

Note: The Winners of my last giveaway HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED on the post itself. Thanks for entering and stay tuned for more!

ZALORA Hong Kong - my experience

I'm so happy with my new floral origami dress from ZALORA, an online clothing shop located in Hong Kong and other asian countries. I found the shop when browsing through some online shops and it's so great how ZALORA ships to asian countries such as Hong Kong, Philippines and Singapore. In fact, it's filling a much needed niche of online shopping, because let's face it, who doesn't love online shopping? There's so much choice on ZALORA s site, and it's really easy to use. I can't believe how many wonderful clothing available for sale, and best of all they deliver really quickly and they always make sure their customer service is top notch.

Go Eco Store feature- Heart Earrings

I recently received a pair of Slim Heart Earrings from Go Eco Store's Recycled jewellery line. I really love the fact that the earrings are made from 100% recycled products, and also the fact that the shop sells products of all kinds made from recycled goods, including necklaces, bags, clocks, prints, shot glasses, bracelets, lights from coke bottles, metal decorations and so on. These eco-friendly earrings look stylish and environmentally friendly at the same time. With climate change becoming an important issue these days, it's all the more important for people to recycle and innovate at the same time. 

The store's Slim Heart Earrings are handmade in North Wales from recycled tins cut into unusual and unique pieces of jewellery. The pattern comes from recycled cake tins, so each pair is unique in that the pattern is going to vary according to where the tin is cut. It comes with a long hook which slides into your ears, and they're very comfortable to wear. The earrings are lightweight but sturdy, which is perfect for a night out or a party. I got a lot of compliments when wearing these earrings! 


I think that these earrings, or any recycled jewellery are perfect gifts because they are eco-friendly,  different, creative and unusual. Aren't they great?

Do remember to check out Go Eco Store at http://www.goecostore.co.uk/ and let me know what you think about eco-friendly jewellery!
