Snapped these photos at the Western Harbour Tunnel Crossing in Hong Kong when I went to Tin Lung Heen at The Ritz Carlton for dim sum with my friends at H&M. The view at the crossing was pretty cool, and it just so happened that no one was there at the time. The ambiance and food there was really amazing but the view from the 102nd floor was spectacular! Definitely a spot to visit when you’re in town. I’m missing Hong Kong so bad!

Last year I introduced Swedish eyewear designer, Anna-Karin Karlsson to you all, I’m a big fan of her designs and this year she’s back with more amazing designs. The theme behind the 2013 collection is heavily symbolic. Anna-Karin took time out from the rest of the world and moved to a cottage in the Swedish countryside in order to realise her ambition of creating couture eyewear. In the dark forests of northern Sweden, Anna-Karin’s determination and vision had few distractions and she worked continously and obsessively. ”Perfecting the Art of Dying Alone”, the title of her 2013 collection derives from working around and engaging in themes of grief and mourning. The collection was created to show the beauty and sorrow of sacrifice and the perishability of it all.
For 2013 she brings back some of her classic styles along with new styles featuring animals, flowers and three dimensional prints decorated on heavy graphic frames. The expression is beautiful, strong and whimsical. Some of the new styles are ”Mourning for Miss Blow” is a tribute to the fashion legend Isabella Blow, who Anna-Karin had the honor of working with in her early years. Originating from her song ”One Trick Pony” the eyewear design ”Black Horse” is Anna-Karin’s most sculptural work to date. ”People want things with a heart – with thought and depth – and I want my designs to live a beautiful, romantic life.”
Really amazing collection, I love so many pairs! The collection is available at annakarinkarlsson.com.
I’ve just started to edit more photos from my Hong Kong trip which seemed to have happened so long ago but it was just a few weeks ago. Sometimes I feel like just packing a bag and flying to HK for a quick trip but too bad it’s 15+ hours away from NYC! I really miss HK and wish I can live there at least 1/3 of the time. Whenever I’m in HK, I always like to ride the trams aka “ding ding“, it’s slow but I just love the double deck iconic trams. I’m so bad with trip photos, need to figure out a system to be more efficient lol, there’s just so much photos to choose from! More soon!

I’ve been thinking about doing a juice cleanse forever but never thought I’d survive on just juice so I put that thought away until I came back from my long trip from Asia. After traveling for a long period and eating out and going out late everyday I felt bloated and fatigue from all the bad food I ate. Last month I finally decided to try a 3-day cleanse with BluePrintCleanse to help my body detoxify and purify itself. The juices are all 100% USDA certified organic fresh fruit and vegetable juices hydraulically pressed, so you get the good stuff
Since it was my first time on a juice cleanse, I went with BluePrintCleanse’s beginners cleanse, Renovation. Ordering the juices were easy, placed an order online with the date I want to start and the package was delivered the day/night before (depending on the time frame you choose). I actually didn’t really follow the directions and didn’t prepare before my cleanse, the day before I still ate my meals as usual. For me, it didn’t effect me at all but that varies with everyone.
