“Peace is a day-to-day problem, the product of a multitude of events and judgments. Peace is not an ‘is,’ it is a ‘becoming.’ ” —Haile Selassie
One of our favourite way to unwind (especially on rainy evenings like the one we are having in Hong Kong) is simply skip gym, and come home to a (quiet) self-love ritual. I know, self-love seems to be such an over-rated word these days, but I couldn't possibly say enough how much these rituals are empowering /healing me in this super, busy city (note - I don't mean super busy here in a negative note, in fact, quite the opposite. I absolutely love the fast-paced life in Hong Kong!).
So, play some music, put on the kettle, light a candle, work on a (super snuggly!) knit project & sip on tea. Our Calm bag - a specially curated bag for introverts / homebodies, like us.
The Calm bag is special to me because it is a collaboration with a group of other women-owned businesses, women whom I have come to love over these few short months.
How precious it is to have such a close knit of women-entrepreneur community in Hong Kong.
A little about us behind this special curated Calm bag containing the finer details to a quiet night in.
Do you like this? Do let us know, we'd love to hear if we should curate more collectives like this! x
