Fok Hing Gin’s Exclusive New Year Special
There’s a new homegrown gin brand in town! While distilled in the UK, Fok Hing Gin is uniquely inspired by the vibrant character of the 852. Get your hands on the special Chinese New Year edition, which is infused with fragrant mandarin orange. Oh, and about the name, while it may sound similar to a certain Western profanity, we’ll have you know that it takes its cue from a street in Causeway Bay!
Introducing activewear with a purpose. Tried and tested by Team Sassy, we love Sparks’ collection of high-quality (yet affordable!) sports bras, tanks and leggings which are available in an inclusive range of sizes. For every purchase, Sparks will give back to one of three non-profit organisations who are making a difference within their local communities, helping you to look good, feel good and do good in one fell swoop!
