BEAUTY & TAIYAKI LOVE

I’m finding it pretty hard to believe that not so long ago, I was in HK. Now that I’m back at work, it feels like I never ever left the UK at all. While I narrow down the pics for my insta-diary (I can’t lie, I’m wondering how on earth to pick just a few

WINNIE EATS: ALWAYS HUNGRY (IN HK)

Ah I do love a good food post so here are two of my favourite meals when I was away in Hong Kong. First up, the most important social occasion with any Cantonese family is yum cha where we consume masses of lots of little dishes which are collectively called ‘dim sum’. I’ve heard it
