Sweet Little Things...

Posted on: 11 September 2011

My holiday has produced so much content for the blog in one form or another. I can't stop churning out the posts to do with my favourite city! Today I am wearing a little peter pan, polka dotty dress I found in Laforet Mall, Causeway Bay. Owing to it's shape (it's quite fitted), I find that it's quite smart and so it will be perfect for other occasions too. I've paired it with a little leather bag I bought from Laurustinus in Tin Hau and I'm kind of in love with the lime green colour which reminds me of lime starbursts, my favourite!

Other new things that have come my way that are not HK related are some delicious doughnuts from Krispy Kreme x Glamour (in stores now). The courier delightfully handed me the box bright and early and told me that they looked like breakfast. Yeah he was right, I didn't hold back and tucked into one of the strawberry glazed rings asap...as did the rest of my family!

Glossy goodness
Mmmm so glossy!
Other glossy things that I like are of course nail polish! I hate it when my favourite polishes go all gloopy and for that reason I don't buy the crackle ones anymore. They go gloopy far too quickly and I've only ever got a couple of uses out of them. Everyone has had this problem right? Here are a couple of the normal polishes that I bought recently from trusty Barry M.

Indigo, Mint Green, Lemon and Peach Melba
You all know that I am a sucker for kitschy cute things and so to finish off the post let me show you my favourite thing at the moment. My iPhone now resembles the little Japanese bear known as Rilakkuma. It's ears were the deal breaker!

I bought this Rilakumma case from this seller. Oh it's ears, it's little face, how could I resist, it's so kawaii!

Lastly, it's Mid Autumn Festival tomorrow, so to those who celebrate, 中秋節快樂! Don't eat too many moon cakes!

  2. Reading your blogposts lately has forced me to start saving so I can spend next summer solely in Hong Kong (: I always feel much more at home shopping in little boutiques in the hundreds of shopping centres there. My Mama is in HK riiight now, and has picked up so many little bits for me, forever grateful haha! 中秋節快樂 to you and your family Winnie (: xx

  5. Hey Winnie! You are a cutie in this outfit. I can imagine all the great clothes and accessories I will be bagging next year when I go HK! Still got to catch up with the rest of your previous posts! Barry M is a trusty friend of mine too ;p

    Sorry for the late reply to your question. Yes I speak Hakka! I think its great you understand it and you know, its not that far removed from speaking Cantonese... Just a slightly different Vietnamese-y sounding dialect ;p I'm noticing alot of people are Hakka people you know! Its just that not alot of people speak it!中秋節快樂! Ah, if we don't all eat lots of moon cakes, its not right is it? ;p

  16. omg,i lovee your dress, its sooo cute! Btw, they let u try on outfits in Laforet? I thought they dont? And i like the lime cardigan! i normally wont consider this color but right now its looking rather pretty..and ur bag is gorge! There's a lot of boxy size shaped bags in HK right now. I just bought one not long ago in nude-ligh pinkish color in Beverly Island:)



    Oh so it's normal that the crackle nail polish goes gloopy really fast? I bought one from China Glaza in Beverly Island and it went all clumpy after i only sued it 3 or 4 times? soo annoyed and it aint cheap!lol...at first i thought they were selling fake stuff due to this reson,lol

    Your barry M nail polishes look soo vibrant!!!! i love the colbat blue and minty blue:) i've not heard of this brand until i saw it in the glamour mag recently. Are they expensive?

    And What?! Krispy Kreme is back in the UK?!?!!? I remember they all closed down back then, lol. They had one in Canary Wharf which i frequented a lot!!!!! they used to give u free glazed donuts in Harrods, oh yummmmmmmmmmmm:)and i see it says glamour glaze on the donut box? Is it sponsored by glamour or something?

    Anyway, happy mid autumn festival to you too dear!!! I get off at 3pm instead of 6pm today so i'm pretty excited!!!!!! Will u be eating moon cakes this year? I've got Haagen Dazs ice cream moon cake and ice moon cakes waiting for me at home tonight....yum! will defo take pics,hehe

    Okay, thats a wrap up for now! I've asked too many questions already, lol..Ciao!!!

It was tragic! **sniff**
