Flyknit Max inspired trainers / sneaker

Nike Flyknit was launched in 2013 and now you can find it everywhere.
I got these as I was just curious if the soles would be good.
The design in general is quite good as pink matches grey but the pink inners of the shoes were a bit too loud.
Apart from the appearance, they were very comfortable and bouncy with a slim fit.

Vapormax inspired shoes

I have always been curious how genuine Vapormax soles would feel like so when I saw these Vapormax inspired sneakers sold on Aliexpress I decided to give them a try.
There are millions of so called inspired sneakers out there ranging from different prices.
I reduced my choices down to this one was as was relatively cheap among the rest and I liked the colourful rainbow sole.
The upper red knitted shoe part goes well with the design but the black and white tab at the back was an eye sore.
I feel that any inspired shoes shouldn't have words, letters or logos on it because it simply makes them look cheap and tacky.
Saying that, OneMix is another air cushioned brand that is succeeding as they have developed a good range that does not look so tacky.
The quality is quite good but lets see how well they will handle the extreme heat and temperatures of the sun before the sole comes off!
They were surprisingly comfy and they felt like socks with a hard yet soft sole attached.
For people who have wide feet, the material might be a bit tight at first but since it is flexible, they should be able to expand.
These were labelled as mens shoes but fitted very well as a lady's size 39.

Limited Edition evian® bottles by Inès Longevial

Stylish and fun filled limited edition evian press kit from @evianwater x Inès Longevial.



It was fun trying my hand at painting the mini canvas while hydrating myself with these limited edition bottles of water.

Earlier this month, evian® unveiled a new limited edition bottle by Inès Longevial for International Women’s Day.

The Limited Edition designed bottles capture Inès Longevial’s expression of the evian® Natural Mineral Water’s 15-year long journey through the French Alps
For International Women's Day, evian® has invited for the first time a young French painter, Inès Longevial, to design its iconic annual Limited Edition. Since 2007, evian® has been known to pioneer fashion collaborations, working with such leading designers as Christian Lacroix, Kenzo and Alexander Wang.

For the design of the evian® Limited Edition, Inès Longevial took inspiration from the 15-year long journey of evian® through the French Alps. "The ink stroke symbolizes the journey of the natural mineral water through the rocks of the French Alps, while the flowers represent the blossoming nature on the surface - a source of pleasure" says Inès Longevial. This collaboration not only celebrates creativity and aesthetics but also tells the story of evian®.

The evian® x Inès Longevial Limited Edition bottles are available in two versions - glass bottles (750ml) and Prestige PET bottles.

Sparkling gem studded silver trainers/sneakers

I love anything that is silver and sparkling.
These silver trainers were plastered with gems, crystals, Rhinestones of all shapes and sizes so I had to get them.
The shoe sole complimented it nicely as it was clear.

Me Time Capsules at K11

Hong Kong designer Gary Hon, founder of the award-winning WOWOW Studio is the creator of this 3-part artwork which invites visitors to travel to their inner space and enjoy quality Me Time in a trio of ways, allowing us to discover, heal and reinvigorate ourselves. 

Gary believes to truly enjoy Me Time, we should be free from external interference, as if time melts.

1. Me Time Capsule(ExperienceMe Time)
2. Me Time 360° (Discover Me Time)
3. Me-Drawing LOOP (Create Me Time)

I definitely enjoyed the moment to myself in these Me Time Capsules and frankly who doesn't.
The colour theme of the artwork was pink and black which is inviting in a cosmopolitian enviroment. 


It is quite rare to get comfortable Me Time moments in Hong Kong except for those toilet moments because HK is simply overcrowded and tiny. 

Date:14 March – 2 May 2019
Time:10:00am – 10:00pm
Venue:Atrium (G/F)

[CL Mall] Contact Lens

I love CL Mall and now there are three branches in Causeway Bay, APM and TST.

My first purchase was a pair of glasses which only costed me $99 on promotion as I don't have any astigmatism.
At CWB, there is a qualified optician so you can get your eyes tested if required.

A few months later I discovered all these funky contact lens in pastel colours so I got them online as well.




All the lens were satisfactory so I shall try other brands later.

Locations:
Causeway Bay - 3/F Windsor House
APM - Sweety Eyes by cl mall, Shop L4-5, 4/F
Tsim Sha Tsui - Shop 107A, 1/F, Silvercord
