I was never meant to take a long holiday from blogging, but somehow a week in Goa stretched into two weeks without a post. To be honest a week away from Hong Kong, made me realise that my favourite and much loved hobby of writing and day dreaming turned into a second job: the multiple projects, the events, the endless meetings about collaborations, ideas, twitter, instagram, suddenly I found myself with two full time jobs. Taking a break from it all made me realise that I was spreading myself too thinly; running around without a purpose trying to prove something to myself and to others.
I am not one of these amazing people who naturally multitasks between a multitude of projects with computer like efficiency of a social butterfly. I have a tendency to get stressed out about things and take things personally, so in the next few months I want to focus on much fewer projects that I can do well, rather than a thousand things that I do half way and end up stressed out because I never have time to just stop and breathe.
I have been so relaxed and at peace since my return that I have not even started editing the Goa photos I will try my best to get through them this week and if I don't I hope you will forgive me.

Anyway enough of blabbing it's been a while since I have introduced you to a new designer and this weekend I came across a perfect candidate for my
So who is behind the brand?
Shira Entis, a fashion designer and lover of all things tiny and over-sized, and Alex Bell, a lawyer and seeker of adventures, have been fleamarket addicts since they met at Brown University. Frustrated by the inconvenience and environmental hazard of accumulating plastic bags while marketing, they craved a convenient and fashion-hot tote that could fit all of their wares. Fleabags are designed as their ideal solution - dapper, large, lightweight and sturdy carry-alls - that are also eco-minded.
Fleabags strives to create products that are as green as possible while maintaining high quality and covetable design. Fleabags are made with organic and vintage materials, vegetable-tanned and re-purposed leathers, and other parts all sourced in the USA.
P.S. I have not shopped for a month and this blue and cream clutch is definitely on my wishlist of things to buy.
