  • Go For Green 來點綠

    2020-02-05 by

    It is not a secret that colour can dramatically affect moods, feeling and emotion. If having to recommend one colour in the beginning of this year, I would say why not go for green? 色彩擁有左右心情, 觀感和情緒的魔力已是眾所皆知. 如果得在這新年之初推薦一個顏色, 我會說, 不如來點綠吧! On the one hand, green sends message of  balance, harmony, restoration and peace- exactly what we… Read more

  • The Small Flaws in Your Eyes Could Shine You in Life 你的氣場可能來自你眼中的小缺陷

    2019-03-22 by

    A recent news triggers my thought. It’s a debate sparked by the Spanish fashion house Zara’s recent cosmetics campaign, in which Li Jingwen- one of China’s famous models- shows her non-retouched face with obvious freckles. This image is accused by some Chinese netizens of “uglifying China”. 最近有則新聞讓我相當有感. 幾個星期前西班牙快時尚品牌Zara發佈了彩妝品廣告, 裡頭起用了中國模特兒李靜雯疑似未經修片, 滿臉雀斑的形象照, 引發中國網民抗議辱華的言論. “They are discriminating Asians’… Read more

  • The Beauty of Imperfection 不完美之美

    2018-08-26 by

    Ever since I started my own styling business, I’ve received this same advice from different people. 在我開始自己的造型事業之後, 無獨有偶的從幾個互不相識的朋友那裡得到這個建議. “Try not to look always perfect. Most women don’t like to be served by a Ms. perfect!” A very wise girl friend said to me. “試著不要讓自己時時看來完美, 女人不喜歡有個完美小姐隨侍在側!” 一個素來以有洞察力著稱的女朋友這麼吿訴我. “Your words may not be convincing enough to clients if… Read more

This tour is one-of-the-kind to me in… Read more

  • Shanghai 上海雜記

    2018-01-27 by

    Few years ago, I interviewed a young girl for a merchandiser role in my team. She dressed decently like a normal office lady.
