The Latest

       I've been trying to find "that perfect versatile scarf" for god knows how long already.  With my min-umph-malistic style, or minimalistic style with an "umph", I like to play around with different closet essentials.  As I hunted for what I call the PVS or the Perfect Versatile Scarf,  I spotted exactly what I was looking for and I didn't have to search far and wide to find this one.

    Dress in Print's current collection, Behind the Woods, featured these stunning printed silk chiffon scarves made from recycled polyester.  To he honest, I wouldn't have thought that they were made from sustainable materials.  The collection features eleven collaborative designs, seven dresses and five scarves, from travel photographer Jude Tsang and Fashion Illustrator Agne Ro.  
    As this PVS got into my possession, It's been a staple to my looks.  It's honestly the perfect up the ante for any fall/winter look or even the transitioning period in between.  Though Dress in Print's gorgeous pieces are only available online at the moment, you can catch them at their pop-up this Sunday on the 21st of December at the Island East Market.
    I've been asked a lot lately on how I style my scarves.  Watch out for my How-To video for nifty tips to level up your ootd's.
                First Acne Studios Store in Hong Kong                
             17 October 2014 -  Swedish fashion brand Acne Studios finally set its first footprint here in Hong Kong.
             Androgynous Acne paved its way from Paris to London, New York, Los Angeles and now - Hong Kong.  Located at the premium fashion street, Ice House, the 695 square foot store portrayed an outer space-like interior, with perforated aluminium structures.  
             To celebrate the opening, style icon Joey Yung, along with other guests were present at the opening reception held in-store on the 17th of October, 2014.  The latest collection of neutral tones beige, gray and white, and Acne Studios' classic pink and black, were available in-store, along with the limited edition sweater made specially for Hong Kong.

             Bounce, Bounce, Bounce to the Beat at the ClubRyze             
        Ryze, Hong Kong's first trampoline park, opened in a seven thousand square feet interconnected bouncy hub mid North Point and Quarry Bay.  The venue was hard to miss, and took around three minutes of walking from Exit C of Quarry Bay.  It was quite dark, by the way, so finding the place was definitely a piece of cake.

       Don't get the wrong impression.  The sound of trampolines and funtastic jumping sessions may seem a tad bit childish, but Ryze offers a variety of jumpy awesomeness to both kids and the kids-at-heart.  
       KidJump Hours.  This special slot, perfect for the cute little ones under age six, is available from Monday to Friday from 10am-11am.  With the affordable price of HK$95, the KidJump Hours includes access for one guardian and one child.
       RyzeFit.  Who says losing weight has to be in the form of HIT?  This program is rumoured to burn around 1000 calories per session.  Alongside, Ryze has loads of available sporting activity stations from Dodgeball, Basketball and a tight rope foam pit.
        ClubRyze. Lights out, Lasers in.   ClubRyze is available on Fridays and Saturdays, from 5pm till closing.  Of course, this is only available for those 15 and up.

       It was my first time at Ryze and I had no expectations whatsoever.  Although, I've heard a lot of positive feedback from it.  After trying out ClubRyze, I must say, the hear-says were justified. 
We all know how this ends.  Foooam piiiittt
