Style & BeautyPost Category - Style & BeautyStyle & Beauty

After a brush with the Big C and unfortunately not Chanel, Instant Goddess is back in the shopping saddle – so saddle up Goddesses it’s time for a quick ride around the Hong Kong streets and down the online aisles for all that is fash for less cash!

With the mercury on the rise it’s adios to our trusty jeggings and time to recover your summer clothes from under the bed… but if your summer wardrobe is left wanting and in need of an uplift or two here are a few little pointers to get you warm-weather-ready!

MD is the Boss
Massimo Dutti is having a bit of a moment with its printastic sundresses all loose and lovely, perfect for when the +852 reaches sweltering temperatures! If you’re already frocked to the hilt they also have some good shorts in store.

Frocks on Top @ Topshop
At the time of going to press, Toppers had some fab going out frocks in store but fear not, they’re also available online should they have been whipped off the shelves before you make it through those hallowed TS doors. This is what got the Instant Goddess radar twinkling.

On Your Marks
Marks and Spencer has some good run-about-town flat sandal options in store at the moment… and Instant Goddess even spotted the almost extinct size 40 in Hong Kong! The shopping adrenaline pumping through her veins, she stepped away just in time before snaffling the Tory Burch-inspired flats below. Ooh, and we’re liking the block heels in store — perfect to give you a little elevation but just enough to keep your feet firmly on the ground.M&SSandalsCollage From left to right: Disc trim thong sandals $299, white block heels $559, toe post diamante sandals $399 – Marks and Spencer

Midweek Meal Inspiration
fishcakesCould the Instant Goddess quest for the perfect fishcake be over?! My regulars will know that we do LOVE a fishcake in the Instant Goddess household… and with a chunk of cheese in the middle this really is happiness on a plate. Full recipe here courtesy of those domestic goddesses at Woman & Home. P.S. You can freeze these fishcakes too and if you can’t find smoked haddock just substitute any white fish you can lay your hands on.

Yogi tea saying of the week: “If it doesn’t challenge, it won’t change you.”

Instant Goddess saying of the week: “The Big C can’t keep an Instant Goddess down.”

Until next week Goddesses and remember, you are ALWAYS, ALWAYS worth it.
