A very overdue post but still important all the same..

One of my very best friends Fah Chak graduated this year with an MA in Menswear at the RCA, creating (unsurprisingly) a beautifully ornate and covetable collection. Based on a broken love story between a knight and a princess, the Amore Armor collection oozes with romanticism and regality, juxtaposing softness with intricate laser-cut details and finished off with the Midas touch.

She has since scooped up an ITS#10 award, winning the opportunity to work for Maison Martin Margiela in Paris later this year, and has earned bucket loads of press on the way.

We had some fun together doing the shoot for the finalists catalogue a few months back, where we had to add a subliminal heart into the photograph.. see if you can spot the hearts (there's 2)!

She never ceases to amaze me with her mad skills (and ridiculously perfect haircut), and yet she remains one of the best pals a girl could have.

Me and the boyf will be hitting Thailand and HK this September and she's going to be our personal tour guide since Bangkok is where she calls home. Very exciting times!

Here's to an amazing designer and an even better friend! xx

There's been an awful lot of cakes recently (both baked and eaten).. here are some of the best:

Mum's beautiful and delicious Birthday Cake

My little sister's beautifully decorated mini chocolate cupcakes

My other sister's recent 21st birthday cake

Mine and my brother's shared 'Mahjong' birthday cake earlier this year

And finally one of my favourites - home-baked red velvet cupcakes topped with cream cheese frosting.. mmm!

N.B. All the Chinese style birthday cakes here were bought from Golden Gate cake shop in China Town, London - they are my first bakery of choice when it comes to birthday cakes! Go get your cake on!

Wowee it's been over a year since I last posted on here!

I have been busy working away at Stylorouge and completely lost my blogging momentum but going to try and jump back on the band wagon as from now since my website has been updated recently as well!

More interesting things later but for now, here's a funny photo of our little bunny named Lola whom we bought home with us at Christmas. She likes to laze around when she thinks we're not looking.. x
