Very nice post by Susie of Stylebubble on her visit to Liger in Hong Kong, where she plays dress-up with Liger’s co-owner-slash-Mrs. Eason Chan-slash-super celeb stylist Hilary Tsui (who is at last out of her MBTs). This pic is from Stylebubble, and she’s wearing a piece by HK designer Mak Chun Ting. Go #TeamHongKong!
Nope, wearing two scarves today wasn’t weird at all… I’m all about practicality - eliminated the need to wear another cardigan or jacket and it could be tucked into my bag easily whenever it got too warm. I declare this a fashion statement for pragmatists.

So…Soap! Is a Hong Kong social enterprise based in Tai Po (New Territories). It’s organic, handmade soap made by underprivileged local women who might otherwise find it difficult to gain employment. They’re trained to be soap-makers. The soaps are put in bottles that were once used for soy milk.
If I’m not mistaken, one of the key people behind it is Bella Ip of Bella Sapone. She started making solid soap under her Bella Sapone brand around 4 years ago, making all her soaps by hand, using completely natural ingredients. One of my friends swears by her goose oil soap that’s great for greasy pots.
I bought a bottle of tea tree oil hand soap for HK$88 at the Tai Po Tai Wo Sunday Farmers’ Market, where they have a stall. Check out their distribution points and more info on their supercool website. Go #teamhongkong!
