Last night I was privileged to be invited to a tour of F11 Photographic Museum in Happy Valley. We were lucky to be taken around but its founder, Mr Douglas So, who spoke passionately about his love of photography and also of Hong Kong architecture. Anyone who reads this blog would probably know that […]

It is said that most of us form an opinion about the people we meet in the first few seconds, so it is important to put your best foot forward by making sure that you look and feel your best. An image consultant, such as the very elegant and assured Claire Edwards, can help you sharpen your first impression.
Services include wardrobe advice, personal shopping and colour and style analysis. Claire’s experience in retail can help you navigate the multitude of stores in HK and she also uses her training in counselling and coaching to improve confidence and self-esteem. You can visit her website here.
Like every week, I have discovered new places to shop and visit. I am loving the tip about Wild Swans…who not only stock the fab Danish brands, By Malene Birger and Day Birger et Mikklesen but also the fabulous Rabens Saloner- not stocked in HK at all.
Also looking forward to a great French meal at La Fleur which I have seen but not visited.

Suzy Annetta’s interiors are blend of luxury and sophistication. Her use of high quality materials and attention to detail meld together to create some of the richest interiors around in Hong Kong. Among some of her interiors that she has had her hand in include The French Window in IFC and Brat in Soho. Suzy also writes an great interiors blog based in HK which you can check out here.
In addition to all of this, she is busy opening her new studio in Wong Chuk Hang and is about to launch a range of luxe bronze lighting later this year. I will be sure to give you a sneak peak and am hoping that Suzy will consent to have a few pieces in the EC store.

With gorgeous flowing blonde hair and an elegant, yet funky, dress style, Jasmine Webster of fashion blog DRESSMEBLOG.ME stands out from the crowd. Her blog celebrates the real fashion of Hong Kong and she is the go-to girl for great tips for the best places to go for anything fashion or beauty related.
I love the fact that she always looks so great and she shops in outlets- that in itself is an art and later we have to get tips on how to look for the best bargains as I always find outlet shopping rather a challenge.
She also is a very talented fashion stylist and you are able to book her to orchestrate your entire wardrobe or for that one off fashion challenge that ties most of us in knots.
Make sure that you bookmark DRESSMEBLOG.ME to keep up with all that is cool in fashion in HK.

Sassy’s Maura Thompson has her finger on the pulse! She is one of the driving forces behind my favourite HK blog, Sassy– my goto site for planning my weekend and where to shop. Thus, she is a fitting subject for the latest edition of My HK. A big part of blogging is going to all the openings and events around town. I am unable to go to as many as I should, but Maura seems to know exactly what is going on.
One of the best things about these posts is finding out the hidden spots. I pretty much thought I had shopping covered but I haven’t visited either Polkadot or The9thMuse but am going to check them out and report back. If Maura says they’re good, they must be!
Oh if you want to know what’s on in HK, then bookmark Sassy- you can find the link here.

I knew I would like this series. I have talked to quite a few of the coolest people around and found out about some great places to go in HK. Who knew you could buy socks for chair legs in Jusco? I am getting a set or 2 for my upstairs neighbours who love to move furniture around in the middle of the night.
But I digress: this is a bit of a teaser post for a much longer one about Eilidh’s designs for her label, The Book of Deer. Eilidh is a very talented fashion designer now based in Hong Kong and who trained at Central St Martins. Her delicate and whimsical designs are characterised by her hand-drawn illustrations and lovely, subtle colours. If I was a twenty-something I would be definitely floating around in her romantic designs.
She has just launched an online store and some of her designs can be seen at Daydream Nation. Watch out for a more detailed post coming soon….

I love talking with creative people here in HK and getting the low down on their favourite places and things to do here. I’m going to kick off with myself- I was really easy to interview!
