Urban @ Landmark

DSC01020 I was hanging out with my friend in Central the other day before a doctors appointment and were both knackered after an intense shopping spree so we decided to sit down a little bit. Unfortunately, the Pret we frequent didn’t have any room so we went across to Urban instead (which was arguably one of the best decisions I’ve made so far in the week).

Still, it was great rediscovering a couple of things that I have neglected and/or didn’t have access to in Hong Kong. Continue reading “July Favourites”


Jo Malone

Jo Malone

I was having a small debate with two of my good friends yesterday about whether or not fragrance makes an impact on a date – I was on the losing end, saying that it did and that it had worked in my favour previously but both of them brushed it off as something insignificant. I still am not completely convinced. Continue reading “Jo Malone”
