Buon Natale! It’s time to celebrate the festive season the Italian way, with prosecco, panettone and pizza at Goccia while you shop for gifts for family and friends from VIPbox, Mischa Designs and Bejewelled Bespoke to name just a few. The fun kicks off at 3pm tomorrow and goes into the evening, so you can shop (and eat) ’til you drop!
Italian Christmas Market at Goccia
Hester is originally from the incredibly glamorous city of Bristol, in England. Determined to escape her West-Country roots (though a love of good scrumpy should never be lost) she packed off for uni at Oxford to waste several years on a degree in Philosophy and never looked back… Following a stint in Switzerland eating too much fondue and meeting her future husband, they jumped at the chance to follow their dream of heading to Asia, and landed in Hong Kong in 2008. Along with partners-in-crime and fellow Tai-Tais, Maura Thompson and Natalie Firestone, she founded Sassy in 2009 and then Sassy Mama in 2011 after the birth of her daughter Elodie. Number 2 daughter Margot arrived in August 2012 and then two months later it was off to her new home in Singapore with tinies in tow. Hester is discovering the Lion City one shophouse at a time with a love for seeking out Singapore’s hidden secrets!
