While I have never been part of the fashion forward crew, and certainly not a shopping type for the lack of patience. But then, there are the late nights I am trawling Pinterest and Etsy and buying one off pieces painstakingly made by creatives. Chatelles shoes are my latest crush, they didn’t have a physical […]

Botalic is a little gem in Macau that i stumbled upon. While what they have can’t compare to the extensive gorgeous selection at Typehype, there’s an eclectic collection of notebooks, cards and stationery. They also have a letter press machine and do everything the old school way – bring back the old school romantic type […]

One of the places I diligently made notes about was the Type Hype store, and sadly everything was out of our budget from 70€ posters to 50€ cushion covers… we didn’t end up buying any type chocolates either! I didn’t make it out to the typography museum, which a friend said was nice but very […]

We stumbled upon this lovely shop I Like Paper in Kreuzberg, true to its name and raison d’etre – stock full of paper items from watches to mobile phone covers, wallets, mini wallets and passport holders. What I loved best is that it’s all handmade on the spot! I couldn’t resist getting a paper watch (or […]

Brought this back from Berlin for the husband and it seems to be a big hit with everyone. I got this at Promobo Design shop at Hackesche Höfe – a gift shop haven with emerging European designers. What I loved about their concept is they set aside shelves for local and emerging European designers to display […]

Many asked where I got my vintage treasures in this post where I took my former flatmate and one of my closest friends based between LA and Shanghai (not short of vintage gems) on a mad shopping spree… […]

I chanced upon this while wandering through the alleys to get to my coconut ice cream shop. This little area has transformed with lots of new designer boutiques, art galleries and a super cool sweet store. A little bit of a wonderland in the middle of old local housing, just 50m down from St Paul’s […]

Admittedly I actually haven’t been back to this cosy little corner shop for over a year now and was back recently and reminded of all the cool quaint things homage to Portugal, when Macau was still its little colony. Located in a charming bright yellow art deco style building with a courtyard (you can head […]

I walked for 8 hours today in this gorgeous weather in Macau and I chanced upon this store SARTOR LAB. This beautiful minimalist boutique with airy, stark interiors and two full racks of pant suits gives off an air of an upscale New York boutique. Are we really in Macau? I know the young hipsters […]
