I’m pleased to introduce you to my latest client Alyona Prykhodko of 7 More Minutes and Co-Founder of a gorgeous jewellery brand Sybarite!  Alyona got in touch with me over the summer and she expressed her interest in possibility of working together as her photographer, her blog was relatively new and unknown then, so I was flattered to be asked!

We have been working together since early October, after all the re-schedulings because of my travel commitments to Hong Kong, lots of reshuffling around involving swapping dates with my clients, unexpected press trips abroad et al, we have managed to shoot around 20-25 outfits like a marathon (her boyfriend jumps in to help when I’m not in London) and possibly more, let alone shooting against the dull daylight in wintry days, we’ve soldiered-on.  I’m pleased to share you my first post of Alyona’s personal style (those VOGUE jeans is to die for!) and stay tuned for more in the next coming weeks!

These are selected images of my complimentary visit to Hotel Royal Evian in Evian-les-Bains near Geneva last late autumn.  Like thousands of other travellers across the world, I’ve experienced my first major mishap with cancellation and missing a flight from London to Geneva involving two airlines, and a lost luggage so I ended up with nothing to wear but worn the same clothes practically the whole weekend.  The PR had been very helpful in every way they can but, otherwise I had enjoyable time there.

You can read the full review and my experience during my stay at Hotel Royal Evian and the rest of the photography on ELLE Hong Kong online blog.

p.s the luggage eventually returned to me 3 days after my return to London after I vented my anger Twitter, sometimes social media can speed up the process if anything happen to you.

It’s been a long while since I posted the last monthly Instagram roundup back in May 2014, please forgive me on this one.  It has gotten to the point where I posted so much on a daily basis, to curate a month worth of collage is like piecing a missing jigsaw, I had to give up.  An album of monthly happenings on what I did and ate, where I travelled, what I wore, some random lazy grams of all sorts, the accumulation of visual diaries of my life as a freelancer, photographer, blogger, friend, sister, daughter, a cyclist in Hong Kong and a couch potato, I must admit it’s a colourful one and I’m enjoying it to bits.

I have a habit of snapping something that are somewhat mesmerising, beautiful-ish, cool and the ugly (even tiny cracks on the wall may perhaps gain some likes on Instagram or else fail). Seriously, London is a pretty cool place to snap something seen, unseen,  surprise and the unexpected.  In the middle of autumn, in October in London of course, I participated in an Instawalk event with The Park Tower Knightsbridge hosted by hotel concierge, Andrew Robinson.  The itinerary was filled with fun-filled activities including an overnight stay at The Park Tower Knightsbridge with panoramic views of the city, a walkabout in Hyde Park and discover the oldest part of Knightsbridge and its French connection, instawalk tour of the Knightsbridge and Belgravia districts, chocolate tasting experience at Rococo Chocolates, floral couture and flower arranging masterclass at Neill Strain, and candle making masterclass with Rachel Vosper, all 3 are ‘Artisans of Knightsbridge’, whiskey tasting with The Park Tower Knightsbridge head sommelier, and dinner at award-winning fish restaurant One-O-One.

All snapshots were taken from my Samsung Galaxy Note 3, edited with photo editing apps – Snapseed, PS Touch and VSCO Cam.

Sorry I’ve been away!

I've-Been-Away

First of all.  Happy Belated New Year!

Hope you had a good one.  Apologies for the radio silence, I have been away in my little cave in Hong Kong for almost 2 months with limited access to internet, never mind the backlogs of work particularly blog posts (from 5 months ago) clogging up the queue. Oops!

Anyway, I’m back in London next week for a short 2 weeks before heading back to Hong Kong again for Chinese New Year!  In the meantime, do follow me on Instagram for regular updates @styleslicker.

Cheerios!

This year is the year of all things adornment, I discovered new jewellery brands and independent talents both in London and Hong Kong, thanks to the discovery I started wearing jewellery again, which I hadn’t done so since the mid naughties.  Carat* has becoming my firm favourite amongst all brands, I absolutely adore their jewellery collection.

Now that it is Christmas Day, celebrating the rare occasion with family half way round the world in Hong Kong, I have already prepared a fun Christmas project before I left London.  In collaboration with Carat*, styling their jewellery pieces in the theme of White Christmas, these babies are my hot picks on my Christmas wishlist – Kingston ring,  Willa ring, Ceylon earrings, and Sasha bracelet.  I’m delighted to share the results with you with the help of my sister (and photography trainee) big up, May!

Merry Christmas, with love from Hong Kong!

Seoul visual diary: Dongdaemun and things, part 3

With little time in Seoul, I wasn’t ready to go back to Hong Kong and face the dreadful heat and get bitten by blood sucking mozzies all over again.  My brother Ken and I were invited to spend a couple of nights at JW Marriott in Dongdaemun Square Plaza, a stone throw away from Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Seoul’s popular shopping destination and traditional markets that covers the entire area.  Did you know the building of JW Marriott was what used to be a car park complex once belonged to a previous Hotel?  We indulged an afternoon Britishness in the rooftop alfresco before we took a walk around the neighbourhood and beyond.

What to see and do in Dongdaemun and beyond.

  • Dongdaemun Design Plaza – a shiny fluid form, neo-futuristic building what looked like a starship enterprise in Star Trek.  Designed by Iraqi British architect Zaha Hadid, DPP is a popular tourist destination, the plaza features exhibition spaces and shops as well as a fashion hub in Seoul Fashion Week.
  • An afternoon/evening stroll along Cheonggyecheon Stream – usually flooded with lovers for a quiet intimate moment, and joggers a like.  Do take a stroll during sunset and enjoy the breathtaking views of reflective skyscrapers.
  • Cycling along Han River – you can rent a bike at Yeouido Park from 3,000KW per hour.  Yeuouido is considered the mecca for cyclists, inline skaters and marathon runners in Seoul, it’s congested in most weekends for family and campers alike.
