Daisybutter - Hong Kong Lifestyle and Fashion Blog: Repulse Bay Beach

Hurrah – that dreaded second month of the year is over. Here’s what I propose we do…
  1. Watch Emma Watson’s HeForShe campaign update this Sunday.
  2. Read a glossy magazine – in print – from cover to cover with a freshly brewed cuppa in hand.
  3. Buy a springtime jacket in a bright bright colour. The easiest way to pretend you know how to work the transitional months.
  4. Take a star-gazing course ahead of the spring/summer meteor showers and promise of clearer evening skies.
  5. Get your hair chopped and refreshed.
  6. Spend some time at home doing at-home nail art, watching “too many” episodes of something on Netflix and making homemade guac and chips.
  7. Leave a little comment on your favourite blogs.
  8. Tuck your turtleneck into a little leather skirt – we’re at the final hurdle of Winter Style Games!
  9. Buy those peep-toe cut-out boot sandal hybrids because they’re SO 10 Crosby by Derek Lam and basically ideal for preparing to be in spring.
  10. Refresh your lingerie drawer – kinda obsessed with Intimissimi and Cosabella right now.
  11. Slip some mirrored leather pointed toe flats into the collection.
  12. Marvel at Ella’s ridiculously perfect illustration skill and deck your living room in her work.
  13. Pack a towel, sandals and Instax and head to a beach.
  14. Those January dreams you had? Make them happen. Mindmap your end-goal, map out your on-the-way wishes and slowly but surely get $hit done.
  15. Go to an exhibition, shelve your inhibitions about feeling pretentious, switch your phone off and enjoy.
  16. Buy all of those peachy-pink lipsticks on your wishlist because you just KNOW you’ll wear them all once Easter arrives. Weird logic, eh? But it’s so true.
  17. Instead of rushing a phonecall or Skype session with a loved one, cancel plans for an afternoon, make a tea and hang out with them with your undivided attention.
  18. Shake it off.
  19. Send love notes and stickers to Taylor Swift on LINE.
  20. … Buy Mish this handbag.


  1. Maybe it's because I have a background in Art, but they really are one of my favourite things! I go to Art Exhibs all the time (even managed a few in HK) and while they don't have as many blockbuster exhibitions like we get at home - they have some really interesting ones. Plus, HK's Art scene is so young and still getting established so it's pretty exciting too! I really want a new bag too Mish. Gahhhhh. I need to stop.

  2. ive been shaking it off since the song came out. theres nothing stopping me right now! :D

  3. Such a lovely post, really inspiring!

  7. This seems like a cool list and thanks to you I might try a few. Hope you get to accomplish all of them.

  8. Reading a glossy magazine from cover to cover is one of my favourite "busy life" indulgences. Now that the mornings are getting lighter in London I'm finally excited about shopping again (and putting all the boring winter clothes away for another year). x

  9. They all sound pretty amazing to me! xx

  10. I used to love going to them but certainly need to make more time for them now. There's some pretty cool ones coming up in HK this month that I really want to go to! All the new bag times ;) but I alr over-indulged in both the Alexanders laa >_<

  11. That's what I like to hear!

  12. I'm on the verge of booking onto one now, been looking into them for weeks! (:

  13. Ah thanks Elise! I think I'm going to book a sneaky chop for next weekend!

  14. Ah thanks Jackie! Let me know how you get on (:

  15. Sucks that it now has to be an indulgence instead of a normal thing, eh? I just love cover-to-cover reading! I'm yet to be excited by clothes shopping again - having extreme weather vs. air-con problems!

  16. about #5... I should certainly trim my ends. Peach-pink lips are so pretty... Inspiring list^^

  17. I'm going to pop for a little snip after work tomorrow~ thanks Nancy!
