Inspired by a childhood story, (I think you can guess which one), I am blogging about courageous, positive and empowered people (just like that little engine) who took their unique idea, their amazing talent, their dream or passion, and made it happen. In particular, people who reinvented themselves (because let's face it, HK seems to do this to people!), resulting in something quite spectacular.
Check out these "toot" worthy businesses...
The photographs used are originals from around North Asia and Sweden (where the co-founders hail from) and their transformation into textiles is simply stunning. The scarves are made from high quality silks, cashmere blends and lambs wool.
Now that's what I call an original accessory! Wrapping you in divine success Phye. xo
Lola's Ice Pops are artisan ice pops (or traditionally known in Latin America as Paleta's), handmade in Hong Kong, with no preservatives, artificial colours and definitely no chemicals! Just lots of delicious fruit and other natural ingredients. And I must say, some of their flavours are pretty unique (and sound super yummy!). Get your laughing gear around a Strawberry Balsamic or a Mango Red Chilli Aqua Fresca or perhaps a Yuzu Lemon Cheesecake Creamy Pop or White Chocolate w/ Raspberries & Rose... (You had me at Lola!). Of course there are the more traditional flavours, but I'll let you check them all out for yourself.
Talk about reinventing yourself... the 3 ladies who started Lola's Ice Pops were previously in Law and Marketing and met at a playgroup! (now that is cool!).
Lola's Ice Pops can be ordered on-line for personal or catering quantities (what a cool idea for an event or birthday), they can be found at pop up markets & will hopefully be in a store near you soon.
Wishing you lots of success on a stick Lola's. xo
Long Shot can take an hour of footage (take out all the boring bits) and transform it into a 15-20minute entertaining memory, that is fun to watch. You get to be the Producer and be completely involved ...(just don't expect an Oscar).
Long Shot also have a dedicated page of video shooting tips for any future videos you will now be inspired to take. All this for a fraction of the price you'd expect... Now go get some popcorn ready, we've got some movies to watch!
(Don't forget to switch ON your mobile phone for this one!!)
Wishing you a reel lot of success Long Shot! (sorry that was a bit cheesy) xo
I never thought I would want a stamp as much as I do now. The ideas are endless... cartoon images, logos, themed sets, your dog... Seriously... You can have your whole family portrait on a stamp. Mamalaterre can do anything!
Go get your stamp on people (and get yourself on a stamp)!
I'm lost for words. Just wow! xo
My Little Princess - MLP has created stunning tulle dresses, using the best quality tulle (up to 10 metres of the stuff!), that are each unique in design and beautifully embellished, lined with organic cotton (so no itchy complaints here). MLP also makes matching hair accessories and when you buy an MLP you are also donating to the Cancer Research Foundation of HK!
If you want a very happy little princess, then look no further than My Little Princess - MLP... Wishing you a tulle load of success with sequins on top! xo
I cringe every time my phone goes bzzzzz as I know it's my Air Quality app telling me what I don't really want to know. But I really should know and am going to do something about it! How about you?
Embracing The Naked Islands Project for a cleaner future. Hugs all 'round (with clothes on if that's ok) xo
Until next time (remember to share the love).
