BAMBOO SCAFFOLDING

I never stop to be amazed by the bamboo scaffolding technique that is used in Hong Kong. No matter how big, tall or grand, the buildings will be dressed in bamboo from ground to celling, all constructed by human-hands. Bamboo scaffolding is a technique that have been used for thousands of years in the region. Hence, many Hong Kongers think  about Bamboo scaffolding … Continue reading

Vitsippan ute i backarna står

I just got back to Hong Kong after spending one wonderful week in Sweden – watching Fall transform into Spring. My sister was joking that I’m slowly turning into a landscape photographer as the nature has been my prime source of inspiration over the past visits (explaining all the flower and landscape photos that have been … Continue reading

Kingpins Hong Kong – A Design and Marketing Conversation with Bloggers

Three weeks ago, I got the chance to participate in a Blogger seminar held by Style by Asia at Kingpins Hong Kong – the premium boutique denim tradeshow. The organization hosts shows in Los Angeles, NYC and Amsterdam as well but their Hong Kong show is the only one of its kind in Asia. Kingpins is celebrating their … Continue reading

Show Off Your Shoulders

March is one of those strange months in Hong Kong when you don’t know how-to-dress; one day is warm, the next will be rainy and cold(ish). At this point of the year, I always feel a bit stuck in my-old-boring-grey-winter-clothes. On the other hand, it feels odd to completely transit into full-on-summer-outfits (my-pale-legs are so-not-ready-for-it!). To … Continue reading

Just Hong Kong

Blondie&Pixie DIY Experiment: Statement Headpiece

In the second workshop for the Blondie&Pixie DIY experiment, Carmen and I decided to play with tulle to create two-different head-pieces. December is one of those months that are crazy-busy and packed with Christmas parties and events. In the midst of doing-everything-that-needs-to-done it can be difficult to find the time (and the energy!) to get … Continue reading

The Cartoon Comic Trend

After witnessing the cartoon-comic-trend rise from rags to riches – starting at the streets and working its way up to the runway – I finally gave in and bought myself a Forever 21-budget-grey-washed down Minnie tee. I was thinking twice about it been though. Growing up in the 80s, I had my fair share of of … Continue reading

Halloween Pumpkin Inspiration

Happy Halloween! For me, the best part about Halloween is to make cute pumpkin decoration and carvings. Halloween wasn’t really celebrated when I grew up in Sweden, so I always had a non-traditional sense for the holiday. I always loved pumpkins though; the shape, the taste and the color! Everything-all-at-once! However, over the years I’ve … Continue reading

Blondie & Pixie DIY Experiment: Rhinestone Heels

Life is ironic. Carmen and I meet several years while studying Business at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Between the busy schedule of supply and demand, I found myself daydreaming about beautiful fabrics, dresses and shoes. I asked myself if there was anyone else “out-there” dreaming about a career beyond finance? Several years … Continue reading

Bed Canopy Inspiration

Phew. After one more week of apartment hunting, I’ve still not found that flat. You are probably asking yourself what can be so hard? Well, there are a lot of obvious things to consider like size, budget and location. Then, there are the less obvious considerations like having a green view; perhaps a little balcony … Continue reading
