Hong Kong 'n' November BellaBox goodies...

Wow...I am loving Hong Kong

I really have not stopped smiling since I caught my first glimpse of this amazing city and it's surrounding islands :-) fab, crazy city!  I'm thinking it is so much like New York (my favourite, favourite city) but with the Asian culture.

I'm accompanying my Mr Man who has some meetings here these few days.  So, when he informed me (at the last minute!) that I was not checking bags in and therefore had to stick to the "no bigger than 100ml and maximum 1000ml" rule! Thank heavens for sample size goodies :-)  Hence the review of my November BellaBox. The sizes are absolutely perfect for travelling...

So, first to get the Hong Kong test....the Davines Melu shampoo and conditioner. As my hair is ridiculously dry due to my ever changing choice of colour 'n' heat straighteners (!) this is just perfect for me. The conditioner is especially wonderful, the texture is sooooo creamy! I left it on a minute or two ( kids with me, I'm making the most of it :-)) my hair finished off so silky and soft but not at all fly away.  I will definitely be ordering these 2 hair products and making the most of November Box free postage. 

Next, the Korres Guava body butter. Gorgeous, thick and creamy but yet so easily absorbed. Scent is devine like a holiday fragrance in a packet, so fruity and yummy. Every topical smell makes me think of holidays lazing on palm tree beaches.

Final item tested here in Hong Kong - the OCC lip tar. Nar then (!) do excuse me all you OCC lip tar lovers but really I do not 'get it', what's the fuss? I actually don't like the texture and the colour was terrible! No smiles on my lip tarred lips :-?

So, the remainder of my goodies I will try on my return to Singapore.  All in all though, and despite the lip tar disappointment, I am very much smiling with my November BellaBox...bring on December Box :-)

Anyway, back to me exploring the city 'n' smiling in Hong Kong...

In just over 2 full days I have seen and done such a lot and still there is so much to explore...will definitely be tagging along with my Mr Man next time he has a Hong Kong business trip :-)

Here are a few of my favourite things during my trip to Hong Kong...Stanley seaside town, hustle 'n' bustle of Central, even more hustle 'n' bustle on Kowloon, the Peak, the calm of the park on Kowloon and Victoria park in Causeway bay.  I'll leave you with some photos taken by me during my amazing couple of days...
