My recent visit to Hong Kong saw a quick stop at Grana Fitting Store located at the quaint neighbourhood, Sheung Wan. I went to pick up some luxe silk pieces for my HK trip and my upcoming Italy trip. I’ve never raved so much about material so much before and now almost all my friends have certainly heard me say “Grana has the most comfortable fabric, I feel NAKED!” It’s a bliss to slip into anything Grana and this time I decided to give their swimwear a shot.
Meet your swimsuit dream that comes in 5 colours. Made from the double-layered knit of Italian Sensitive fabric, this swimsuit is designed to move with you. No wires, no padding, no nonsense. Hell yeah! Since I wasn’t hitting the beach during my time in HK, I decided to pair it with a casual pair of denim ankle pants for a lazy Sunday look.
Well, the good news here is that you don’t have to travel all the way to HK to cop these I-swear-most-comfortable-pieces (though you really should, because hk food is just great too)! You can purchase from their online store and a cute blue box of silk will be delivered to your home! Oh, one more thing…Grana caters to both men and women!
Cart out with “SOPHIAXGRANA” and get 10% off + free shipping until the end of October!
HAVE FUN, NO REALLY.
with myself, that is.
You know you’re in a relationship with yourself when you’ve no one you actually want to say “I love you” to romantically and it’s really not a sad thing at all. Instead you wanna say it to yourself from time to time.
I love you for braving every storm, for picking yourself up from where you had fallen, for holding on tirelessly to hope and believing in yourself. For being hopeful that today wasn’t that far away and for pushing your limits. They say difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations ; I’m here now and I’m ready for the next.

I’ve been very influenced by oriental details of late and I couldn’t help myself when I saw this perfect suede embroidered varsity jacket. It’s unorthodox of me to style it with a playful pleated skirt but I decided to go for that oriental-meets-west high schooler look for an off day in China.
I realised I haven’t posted a non-advertorial post in awhile so I’ve decided to do this photo diary along with a quick update on life.
I’ve been very blessed. Things have taken a turn for me since about a month ago and everything’s been very smooth-sailing. Work has been very satisfying albeit tiring, and I’m working very hard with my TJM team to improve and create new and exciting concepts/stuff. I’ve also booked myself a week long holiday for end September so I can take a break and hopefully draw some inspiration. I’m thinking of doing a vlog too, what do you think? Can someone recommend me a compact camera which takes good videos and photos pleaseeeee thank you!!
I’m in a very happy place now and honestly, it took a lot to be here but I’m glad I did what I have to, to get there. It’s not that I’ve forgotten anything but I’ve just learnt to focus on myself and on things I’m truly passionate about. So for anyone who’s feeling despair now, trust me when I say things DO get better even when it seems impossible now. Sometimes good things fall apart for better things to come together. Stars shine the brightest when it’s dark, and this is when you will learn the most about yourself.
Wishing y’all a good midweek <3
