...and just like that she was off again.

20 July 2008

It seems like I've barely been back from NYC and now I'm off onto my second holiday. This time with the family. We often go back to Hong Kong because I still have family that live there which are mainly on my Dad's side. These include my grandparents and my aunts who live on Hong Kong Island, North Point which is a pretty good spot to live as it's pretty close to Causeway Bay where me and my sister love to shop. This time we are also visiting my Mom's extended family who still live in the New Territories but I don't know this side of the family at all. It may seem weird, but I'm looking forward to the smell of Hong Kong!

Before I leave, there is one more outfit post and that is the attire for the flight! Earlier in the week Cupcakes and Cashmere had a post dedicated to things that she would probably wear on a plane which was super useful and I agree, leggings are perfect for flights. The outfit is actually pretty much what I wore to New York. When comfort is key, who cares if you repeat an outfit?

I'm wearing...
Grey Leopard print tee (Miss Selfridge) Dress (River Island) Leggings (TopShop) Shoes (Oasis)
Long Hoody (Once upon a time for Topshop).

My bag which was a present for my 21st from my generous grandmother is a lovely mustard yellow Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. I don't use it very often because I have a tendency to bash my things around but inside I have my trusty books, sweets, mp3 player and most importantly my passport which includes the most hideous photo of myself. Well, it's not like I'm going to be posting that photo up but...I went through a phase of cutting my own fringe and it was not pretty, you get the picture-I'm stuck with that photo till 2015. Ha.

I can't wait, good shopping, good food and spending quality time with the grandparents....I couldn't ask for more really! I may or may not be able to access the internet, but really blogging is the last thing on my mind when on holiday as I am sure most of you will agree! So either way I will be back and blogging in no time. Speak to you all soon!
