last minute christmas shopping

with 4 comments

i love getting cute little innovative gifts from two places. if you had no clue what to buy for someone you are not that close to this christmas – i suggest you not to go the whole nine yards stressing about it. just go to log on or the closest g.o.d.
all sorts of colorful/ hong kong influenced totes – perfect gifts for expat wives or friends who are always telling you to bring them back a piece of hong kong
can’t afford living up on the peak – it’s okie. buy some pillow covers and dream your way to owning a house up there. or if you fancy mongkok or tsim sha tsui. look they are on sale too!!!
i don’t know about you but it seems to me this year almost everyone i know talked about getting a new camera, bought a new camera. between my husband and i – we have a few cameras at home. i don’t like boring camera bags and i  found some really nice ones at log on. log on is an amazing shop, you can buy the cutest trinkets for anyone from kids to adults.

cute aren't they

sometimes camera bags can appear so bulky and out of place but i really like these from log on

4 really cute stationeries……

with 3 comments

i could spend hours at city super’s log on shop. they have the cutest and most frivolous stationeries, it makes me want to be a kid again. when i was young, i had a stack of stickers and a jar of erasers. it was my most prized collection. i won’t let anyone touch it or see it ( see i liked collecting things ever since i was young)

since i can’t go back in time and be a kid again, i can however shop at log on because they have such great gift ideas for literally anyone of any age. the next time you need to give someone a special present, do check log on out. they have a brand new shop on the 2nd floor of isquare, tst.

4 gb robot usb. they come in six different colors. this is my favorite - i call it my mod robot. it's hkd 220 each

so cute.....

converse all stars pencil case

these shoes aren’t made for walking – it is a converse pencil case. it comes in four different colors – blue, pink, red and black. when i was 15, i bought my first pair of  converse, so this is a little nostalgic for me.

erasers replicating all of my favorite sweet stuff - can you believe it, it comes in a plastic container. HK$ 35 each

you should check out the eraser section – i almost died of happiness. they had like little erasers of food stuff, fruits, carbonated can drinks. japanese people are just so insane when it comes to making cute stuff.

stuck on you personalized stickers

recently i received a very cute gift from my friend. they are called stuck on you . stuck on you stickers are personalized labels that goes on everything and anything. i wished i had them when i was a kid. there was a point in time, i like putting my name on everything including the walls in our old house. check out their website. the basic vinyl name labels are HK$ 169 for a set of 50. they are waterproof, microwave free, dishwasher safe and uv resistant.

besides name labels, you can also do funky bag tags and dog tags. i need a funky bag tag because sometimes at the baggage claim conveyor belt, i have to flip a few black bags to make sure, i don’t take the wrong one! sophie needs a tag too. i can’t wait for my godson jake to go to school – i want to give him a personalized set of stickers, water bottle…:)  you can get them delivered in 2-3 weeks time!!

sealed with a kiss...
