interesting book: lessons from madame chic


Happy weekend! Sorry for missing in action lately. Besides occupied with work, I have started reading again and I have finished reading this book a while ago. There are some great advices, tips and insight of French lifestyle or culture. Interesting book, I would say. It covers diet and exercise, style and beauty, and lastly how to live well, the French way. I indeed would try some of the advices or tips. I guess when I was in my 20's it was time to focus on studies and work. In 30's it is about to find the real purpose of life and to live it passionately and fully...And this is the reason why I bought and read this book.

If you need a good read and looking for a change, this maybe the book for you.... Have a great weekend.

summer outfit wishlist

summer outfit 3

Here is another summer outfit wishlist. First set is casual wear suitable for thrifting adventure or exploring the city. If there is any cocktail party to attend, I would definitely wear the second set of outfit. I love the clutch, it is so adorable. As for the last set, it is very demure and ladylike, suitable for brunch or tea with girlfriends. An afternoon of chatting to catch up with each other.

Weekend is around the corner... Any exciting or interesting plans for the weekend?

vintage blue top with white piping

the look: vintage top, thrifted belt, jeans, bangles, sneakers, tote bag

It was sunny and warm yesterday. Nice weather for outdoor photo shoot. At first, I was contemplating whether I should take photos outdoor or indoor but then I mustered all my strength and courage (yes, need a little of courage to pose outdoor, the possibility of being watched by strangers) I headed to a nearby so-called park. I was lucky, not many strangers passing the park. Phew... 

Hope you had a great weekend and have a good and productive week ahead!

midwest vintage



One of the vintage stores in HK that I have yet to pay a visit is Midwest Vintage. Today, weather can be considered as nice - sunny but a bit warm, but this did not hinder me to explore this vintage store. To get here, I took  Island Line MTR and alight at Tin Hau, Exit A2. I walked along Electric Road and I crossed the road when I passed Causeway Bay Market. Walked straight ahead and crossed Whitfield Road and turned left into Watson Road. Victoria Centre is about 10 to 15 minutes walk. Another option is to alight at North Point MTR station. 

Shop details:

Address: Victoria Centre, G/F, #63, 15 Watson Road, North Point, Hong Kong
Business hours: 12 noon to 9 pm
Tel: 2802 6886

vintage belt

The store is well curated with vintage goodies such as vintage bags, vintage accessories and of course vintage clothes. As for the price (as far as I can remember correctly), vintage pins are between HK$50 (promo price) to HK$80, vintage belts are in the range of HK$98 to HK298 and vintage dresses at HK398 per piece. Overall, it is worth to pay a visit, perhaps you will find something that you like and purchase it home, just like what I did today!
