Tove & Libra’s New Summer Capsule
When it comes to summer dressing in Hong Kong, easy, breezy and cool are our top priorities in the face of humid, hot weather days. Tove & Libra’s new Summer Capsule ticks all those boxes, and looks beautiful while doing so! Sustainably-made from 100% TENCEL™ , the collection encompasses a lightweight camisole ($450) and flowing wrap skirt ($750) in an array of sumptuous colours, and can be worn separately or together for multiple outfit options. For a limited time only, purchase both pieces together to enjoy $100 off.
Beat the heat this summer with nüte’s plant-powered icebars – to be enjoyed either as a refreshing popsicle, or blended/shaken with water or milk into a delicious smoothie. Its first line of creations comprises four goodies with four different functions. We love the rich carrot-cake inspired “Recovery”, along with “Immunity”, a rejuvenating fruit mix with a tropical kick.
Sassy Tip: If you want to shop IRL, you can find nüte at the Tong Chong Street Market on weekdays from 8am to 3pm.
M.A.C WANDER.LUST Collection
Did you know Hongkongers drink 900 million cups of Hong Kong-style milk tea a year? That’s a lot of tea! Get your hands on this dusty rose Hong Kong limited-edition lipstick which pays homage to the city’s old neon signs and cha chaan teng culture. The new addition is part of M.A.C’s new WANDER.LUST collection, featuring 13 other limited-edition designs inspired by some of our favourite Asian cities.

You can also customise your own recipes using the Morning mobile app.

Catching Worms: A Hong Kong True Crime Podcast
With a dark history of drug smugglers, corruption and brutal murders, it seemed a missed opportunity not to have a Hong Kong true crime podcast. Enter Catching Worms, a new show dedicated to detailing some of the most infamous crimes our city has borne witness to. A new crime story will be released each month – the first tells the tale of “The Jars Murderer” (we’ll let you decide whether you want to find out how he got his nickname). Warning: Catching Worms is not for the faint-hearted – especially with the stories being so close to home…
