New Items We Covet This Spring
Time to spring into action, mamas! A new season is coming up and we are giddy just thinking about all the fun ways to spruce up our homes, our wardrobes and our lives. You know we have your best interest at heart (and, to be honest, we just can’t keep a secret when we find something worth sharing!), so take a look at what we’re loving this month.
We’re usually skeptics when it comes to products that promise to make us look better than our best. So, when we had the chance to try out their newest Ultra HD line (hey, anything for beauty, right?), we thought it would be just another humdrum makeover. However, after they applied all the skin booster serum, concealer, foundation and powder, we were properly impressed! #takeallourmoney Use the products together and they instantly blur fine lines (from those sleepless nights, mamas!), pores and imperfections for a beautifully smooth and incredibly natural complexion. What’s more, the look lasted all day, which is something we can definitely get on board with!
Ultra HD Skin booster (serum) $320;Ultra HD Micro-finishing Powder $320; Ultra HD Foundation and Ultra Stick Foundation $380; Ultra HD Concealer $260.
Some may call us fickle, but we prefer to say we’re on trend. Besides, who wants to commit to one style for a lifetime? Thankfully, we don’t have to. With this removable wallpaper we can change our minds as often as we decide to change our interior design. Although, when we look at all the beautiful prints and designs, we doubt we will want to. Easy to install (and remove!), they are available online (they ship to Hong Kong!). You may have just found your new passion.
Mother’s Day may be a few months away, but you can start hinting to your significant other right now! But let’s be honest, we’re all about the motto #treatyourself, so if you fall in love with these gorgeous necklaces, designed by architect Simon Robin, we wouldn’t blame you for getting one right now! Robin’s design pays homage to the city we love the most, so if you know someone else who adores Hong Kong as much as we do, these affordable pieces of jewellery are a very thoughtful gift. Available in stainless steel or 18 karat (over stainless steel).
We get it mamas, time is a huge commodity when you’ve got toddlers (heck, any aged children!) in tow. We’re usually the last ones to get taken care of simply because we don’t have enough hours in a day! Well, that’s all going to change now, because we’ve found a way to pamper yourself, get a deep clean and experience the fastest facial out there. Our Sassy Mama Editor, Kat recently got to check out Skin Laundry’s newest location on Causeway Bay and stepped in for a 10 minute laser facial that promises a deep clean, tighter pores and clearer skin. Verdict: Skin Laundry definitely doesn’t disappoint!
As mamas, we’re all about simplifying our lives as much as we can. So we can appreciate a product that helps us multi-task. You’ve probably seen something similar for your smartphones, but this little gadget is perfect for your tablet. No more cases to carry (this has a handle attached!) and no more propping it up on a sofa to take a photo… this little guy does it all. You can stand your tablet at any angle – whether it’s to type, read, watch or whatever it is you (or your kiddos!) do on it. Done.
Sometimes you just want to put on a comfortable pair of shoes. Is that so wrong? Not with these, it isn’t! These Zespà, Aix-en-Provence sneakers are hot this season. Wear them with a cute skirt or dress, or even when you’re out and about on the weekends. The only side glances you’ll get is by women who want a pair for themselves!

We are always on the search for fun, interesting new books to share with (or read to!) our children. What’s exciting about “Hong Kong From A to Z” ($195) is how it highlights our beautiful city. Readers are taken on a journey by a young girl named Ayma as she helps a young frog find its way home. They discover Hong Kong along their way, and experience the city’s rich culture and history. Like the rest of us, they fall in love with their home… from A to Z!

Is it so hard to make a sports bra that doesn’t feel like a sports bra? Not if you’re Grana. The Active Crossback Sports Bra ($226) is meant to feel like a second skin (think comfort and support), and its mesh, moisture-wicking material means you won’t be suffocatingly hot in it either (breathe, mamas, breathe!). What’s even better is how versatile it is – the pads are removable for those who just want a more natural look and feel.
