Friends + Lovers Jacket, C. by Chrsiting C. silk dress

December is always my favourite month. The holiday cheer running abundantly through the air, rosy red cheeks bitten by chilly weather, anticipation of closing out the year with pride, and the general effort to surround yourself with as much love as possible.  This year has been one of the best. I’ve watched my little baby blossom into an intelligent, sweet, and caring toddler as well as receiving news we’ll be expecting another little one in 2016.  I’ve never been great with children or spent my youth wanting to be a mother, but my role as Ever’s mommy fit so naturally I barely had to adjust.  The bond I feel towards her is so instinctual, wanting to absorb every moment we share.  I cherish our cuddles, little hilarious conversations, each and every adoring look, and the way she copies my every move. The responsibility of influencing such a smart and impressionable little girl hangs heavily on my mind daily but I value every decision I make to guide her in the right direction.  Only three sleeps until Christmas Day.  Wishing you all the happiest of holidays.

Wearing C. by Christing C., Stuart Weitzman boots

Last week we slowed down and took a little break in Taipei.  I’m not sure what it is about this quirky and sweet city that always keeps smiles on all three of our faces.  We usually stay at my Grandmother’s lively home where I spent much of my childhood and not much has changed. I’m still giggling and catching up with all my favourite cousins, the only difference is we’ve added other halves and children to the mix.  Ever’s eyes lit up at all the playmates and toys on offer and was ecstatic for the opportunity to spend some time with cats instead of our sometimes grumpy dog.  I’m pretty sure we base our entire day around eating, or shall I say feasting, when in Taiwan and I’m so in love with the distinct and quaint eateries and street stalls. Unlike HK, you can clearly see how each spot is privately owned, without pretensions, and oozing with familial hospitality.  Ever is truly an Asian foodie always gobbling up rice and noodle dishes, and she crying out for the fragrant smells emanating from the corner onion pancake stall.  The fresh air, open spaces, and general friendliness will definitely have us going back for more. Hopefully on a more regular basis.

We are back to HK and so excited the weather is getting a little chilly and winter (ish). I arrived home to a few goodies from Revolve and couldn’t wait to share them with you.   I’m pretty positive I’ll be living in this TulaRosa Coat (it’s in the sale!!) for as long as it’s cold enough, as it’s perfectly fluffy, cozy, and works amazingly over my favourite silky slip dresses.  Thanksgiving weekend is in full swing and my maxi is helping me make plenty of room for all those big meals.   Also have you been dreaming of the perfect taupe shoe please get the Raye Mia Heels which succeed in making your legs look a million miles long.  I think I want them in black too.  Don’t forget that Revolve have started free DHL Express Shipping to HK and they have a Black Friday Sale going on right now. Head over and pick something up for the party season.

If you don’t already know Revolve Clothing, you must head over and check out their insane collection of coveted designers including tons of my favourite USA and Australian brands.  TulaRosa has a selection of romantic dresses ideal for a dream date, and Raye feature a lust list shoe selection of all the on trend styles you could want.  They manage to capture that insouciant Californian aesthetic perfectly in the pieces they’ve selected, while being stylish and varied.  The best part is Revolve‘s dedication to providing a luxury online shopping experience and seamless customer service.  I’ve just spent the last few hours in a dazed trance, browsing and coveting  so many pieces and am so excited they have started Free Express DHL Shipping to HK on all orders over $100 USD. To celebrate this fun launch they are also giving you and your friends 20% off your entire order.

To receive the coupon, visit their website here and share the sale by entering your friends’ emails! The promotion will be held from 11/17 7:00 PM11/23 11:59 PM Hong Kong Time.

No better reason to start shopping.  Make sure to check out my favourite sale items I’ve highlighted above. Perfect boho dresses and rompers for HK’s warm winters.  All you have to do is throw on a leather jacket or furry cardigan over the top and the coveted Stuart Weitzman Alllegs Boots for the ideal winter look.  Remember you only have 20% off until the 23rd so don’t wait too long.

My order is on it’s way.  Can’t wait to share with you what I’ve chosen next week.

 Shop my outfits here.

Feeling extra relaxed this weekend after a tumultuous and draining week.  Our home becomes a mad house the minute more than one person becomes infected by an annoying cough and cold, with tissues strewn in every direction and everyone waking every few hours.  I’ve taken advantage of daytime naps on a Saturday full of nothing and can’t wait for a family shopping excursion to cap off an easy Sunday.  We are rapidly prepping for our trip coming up in a few days, and packing for three weeks away in paradise.  I’ve started switching out my beauty products for all natural options and have acquired an obsession with essential oils.  Will share my secret g0 to spot for purchasing and all my favourite combinations very soon.  Wishing you all a happy end to the weekend.

The ubiquitous over the knee boot is a long-standing Autumn/Winter staple in my wardrobe.  As soon as the temperatures drop I pull out my sturdy well worn pair and a few sets of black thigh high socks to get me through the season.   I continue to live in shorts, skirts, and dresses throughout winter so this is my go to way for keeping warm.  I’ve been truly lusting after the Stuart Weitzman Highland for what seems like an eternity now, but the hefty price tag makes it a pretty impossible purchase at the moment.  Luckily many high street brands have created suede, thigh high versions to satisfy my craving and save my bank account.  Here are a few of my top picks, which hopefully fit the comfort and affordability categories in equal measures.

Topshop Count Over Knee Boots  $800.00 HKD

H&M Thigh High Boots $499.00 HKD

Lachlan Over The Knee Boot $1922.11 HKD

Zara Over the Knee High Heel Leather Boots $999.00 HKD

Taipei always holds a special place in my heart.  The bustling, unique city with the friendliest of personalities and abundance of culture holds many of my closest family and slices of childhood memories. Being born and raised in the USA, married to a Brit, and hopping from city to city across the world makes it easy to forget your humble beginnings.  As a child all I wanted was to be just American, and as normal or acceptable as possible.  Blending in seemed to be the only way I could survive.  Now I’m so proud of my Taiwanese heritage, and the multicultural family in which I belong.  I have too many cousins, aunts, uncles, and family members to count, and we’ve all made homes in far flung countries, but when we come together it’s as if we’ve never spent a day apart.  I’m so proud to teach my daughter the importance of being bilingual and speaking her grandparent’s mother tongue.  To traipse around all the local night markets with my husband, whose British/French good looks stick out like a sore thumb, but doesn’t flinch at the thought of consuming every single local delicacy.  I love the little quiet corners Taipei has to offer, whether it’s perched in a beautiful hotel suite, tucked away in the cutest of cafes, or just relaxing on a park bench. The air, the noise, and  distinctive scent always feels familiar in it’s own unique way.  I couldn’t recommend it more as a must stop city and the friendly, amazingly helpful people will always make you feel welcome.


Where to Stay:

Regent Taipei: Decadent surrounding, luxury shopping, plenty of mouthwatering sophisticated restaurants, beautiful rooms with spectacular views, and helpful inviting service throughout.

Muzik Hotel:  Located in the busy and exciting Ximending area.  Great if you are looking for local food, fun affordable market stalls, and a true bustling Taipei atmosphere.  Affordable rates, modern and comfortable rooms and very helpful staff.
