PANINO GIUSTO

 
Chocolate Shelled Ice cream with my coffee

Clockwise : Caffe Americano | Sorrento Salad | Luis Panini

Since my dad went to a business trip up in China, I tend to like to spend at least a meal with my mom, depending on what I did the night before and if I don't managed to get up to be out and ready for breakfast, I'll definitely have lunch or dinner with my mom, if I didn't end up meeting any of my friends either. Leaving that aside, I love trying new places too anyways.

Since it's in IFC, the best next excuse I have really to go there is shopping! I have quite a few weddings to go to myself next year, so getting dresses now just makes my own life easier too! Bad habit? Maybe, but I know I wear them more than just once!

The sitting area is first come first serve, but they will give you a number card so the waiter can bring your food to you. I love their setting of tables, long tables which makes it very casual. The only downer about this shop's downer point is that, it's right next to the ladies' room... Apart from that, generally, the quality it's pretty good. Personally, I would like the Panini to be more toasted and warm. For what we ordered, the price came just below HKD$350 considering the location and ingredients used, it's to be expected. I thought the chocolate shelled ice cream was a very nice touch with the coffee. It's been years since I've actually had one since I left London.

Hope everyone's had a great weekend!

Jessica Deluxe Cover | Nov 2013

A little while ago, I went to a photo shoot for Jessica Magazine to see what it's really like behind the scenes and on top of that, learning from the professionals themselves is one of the best experiences ever! The most I look forward to is learning from different people, there I can definitely learn.





Makeup by Cac Leung | Hair by Tac Cheng @ Tripple 8 Salon

Makeup products used for this shoot




The look here they're looking for is sexy.
 




 
*Jessica Deluxe Magazine photos are not own by me but copy of the magazine is out in Hong Kong now!
 
All the information from photography, style, to hair and makeup can be found within the magazine.
 
From all of the outfits, I'm absolutely loving the Versace black studded PVC dress! In photos and in person, it really does stand out. Elegant wise, you can never beat the lacy dresses by Dolce and Gabbana.
 
After being very fortunate to go to these jobs, even though I'm still very much of a new comer to this industry but I'm loving it already! I love how you meet a lot more new people on the way as well as compromising with each other as well as the artist or client themselves. First and foremost, I'd like to thank my tutor Cac for bringing me along! Check her Facebook fan page out under Cac Leung, she's one of the top celebrity makeup artist in Hong Kong. I certainly learnt most during jobs!!
 
During the interview with Sherman, she said something which was very true, which is also written within the context. It roughly translates, "When you know your own strengths, you won't please others for their sakes. Don't worry or be afraid of criticisms, so you won't lose yourself."

Rose ou Noir

Shu Uemura x Takashi Murakami








 


 
I've actually used Shu Uemura's products since I've been into makeup when I was just a tender teenager. It's kina hard to believe that I finally have the chance to go to their new collection for this Christmas! It's a collaboration with Takashi Murakami too! If you've heard of him and seen his work, the most distinctive work he's done till now is probably his contemporary designs with Louis Vuitton and the album design 'Good Morning' for Kanye West.
 
Two different styles within the 6 Heart Princess (6HP) collection which is created based on an animated TV series "Majokko". This collection is based on two of the main characters Pink and Black Princess.
 
My favorites of all the products are definitely the soft gel pencil in Black Star, even though it says black, it's got a hint of green which I'm in love with. The massive bedazzled black and purple lashes are very glamorous and their lippies called Funtasy can serve as a lip and cheek colour.
 
Over all, the design of the packaging is very eye catchy and festive, nothing less of Murakami's work of art. But like on the last photo above, even the paper is covered with hearts, bunnies and the cat from the animation. Sometimes when I have a look at it again, I feel dizzy and a little overloaded with the images.
 
Out on October 23 in Hong Kong
 
So are you a Pink Princess or Black Princess?

Mid Week Madness

A little glimpse through my eyes these few days
 
I love working at a café
Just what I needed. COFFEE!
After playing with this kitty here, I seriously wanna get myself one too

Coincidence on the same day while playing with the cat above 

I think The Peanuts have just made it even better
Having a break @ Mandarin Oriental's Café
Always love their cake designs
Went to IFC's LE SALON DE THÉ de Joël Robuchon
will do a review after trying a few more of their pastries
 
One word, cool!
But I really do wished they did a planner like Mark's
 
HONESTLY!
I even spelt it in front of the staff "Silver", she then repeated the same.
but then this is what was written down

Chill Day or Work Day

What to do during a Hong Kong National Holiday when it's during the week...? Take a long weekend? If you're in school, you'll probably already having a mid-term break already.

Well, I normally try to finish off what I started on the blog and keep typing and typing and typing (if I don't write a list, I'd be lost).... or even more likely to be editing photos... It is a shame that I can't find the right type of planner I want in Hong Kong, it is only sold in Japan....

For me, this is the best!! by Mark's
 
This year's National Day has been cancelled in respects for the victims of the ferry crash earlier the year. On top of that, even though it's a really great time to celebrate, there's been many political debate about the fireworks display this year too. Never the less, this was last year's.
 
 
Hope everyone's had a great day off here in Hong Kong
 
with love,
Silvy xxx
