Candle from Diptyque

What is life if you can’t treat yourself every now and again? And we don’t know about you but, here at Sassy, we can never resist a new candle to add to our ever-growing collection – especially one from experts at Parisian perfumier, Diptyque. We are ever lusting over their classics, but the new Limited Edition Holiday Collection has certainly piqued our interests. Fill your home with the scent of spicy cloves, incense and vanilla with the gorgeous blue Un Encens Étoilé candle, or go for all three available now!

Available for $600 from Diptyque stores across Hong Kong or at Lane Crawford online.

Mullein & Sparrow Facial Steam from Gift Something

Christmas is sneaking up on us and we’re busy writing out our Christmas lists, checking them twice (you know, just in case we’ve forgotten something!) and perusing the web for suggestions to send to our nan.  And with a massive selection of unique brands exclusive to Hong Kong, we’re turning to Gift Something, a one-stop online shopping platform that has us torn between gorgeous lifestyle products, novelty accessories, fresh floral arrangements and indulgent gourmet delights! And one product we’re definitely adding to our wish list this year is the Mullein & Sparrow Facial Steam! A cute addition to any bathroom, we’re so ready to kick back, relax and pamper ourselves over the holidays. And with a gorgeous blend of organic herbs ready to soak, we’re detoxing from all that mulled wine and stepping fresh-faced into the New Year!

Available here for $199 (with free delivery!) from Gift Something

Grana Cashmere

The temperature has dropped and if you’re feeling a little chilly, there’s nothing quite like a warm, cuddly jumper to snuggle up in. Enter Grana’s new range of Mongolian cashmere, perfect for the winter months! We’re already big fans of all Grana clothing, so of course we couldn’t resist checking out the super soft sweaters… we’re obsessing over the grey Cashmere Crew Neck ($769), perfect with jeans and a Cashmere Shawl Scarf ($536). Order online and your goodies can be delivered straight to your door – easy to get, reasonably priced cashmere? Who wouldn’t want this for Christmas!

Available here.

Refashioned Clutch

We love supporting Hong Kong creativity and talent, which is why we’re seriously in love with Heritage Re-fashioned clutches! Founder of Heritage Re-fashioned Vincci has sourced and repurposed beautiful vintage kimono material and traditional Chinese ‘kwa’ wedding material into gorgeous clutches and coin purses. Not only are the fabrics absolutely stunning, but it’s a great way to support sustainable fashion. What’s more, Vincci also offers a personalisation service – simply send her a photo (an iPhone pic will do!) and she can print it onto material inside the clutch… super cute!

Available here or on Etsy – clutches range from $1,500 – $1,800.

Yawn Studio Print

If you love this city as much as we do, you’ll definitely appreciate a print from Yawn Studio. This locally based design studio creates simple yet oh-so cool prints of different areas in Hong Kong. Snap one up for your neighbour or as a gift for someone leaving the 852… or you may just want one for yourself! The prints look great even in a basic black frame and would be a great edition to any Hong Kong living room.

Available here – prints from $350.

Handbag from Laykh

Perfect for all of those holiday parties, we are obsessing over the new “Lex” bag from Hong Kong based designer Laykh. Our personal fave is the Forest Green Ostrich leather, which will have you feeling ultra glamorous and most definitely make you stand out from the crowd. In the luxe colour of the season, the cross body bag is the ideal size to keep everything you need tucked safely (and stylishly!) away all night long.

Available for USD $550 here.

Gold Confetti Decanter

With many festive soirees to attend to this season, we’re also looking forward to hosting a couple of Crimbo parties ourselves! And with the weather looking gorgeous, we’re making the most of these cool, sunny days by gathering on our rooftops and sipping on mugs of mulled wine and concocting Christmas cocktails. So what  better way to get the festive cheer flowing than by using a gorgeous, glittery decanter from iDecorate as a centerpiece?  We’re in love.  

Available here for $698 from iDecorate.

Straw Basket from Callixto

Just because we’re moving  into the winter months, doesn’t mean we’re limited to wearing monochrome! We’re loving the bold pompoms on this beautiful basket bag from Callixto. Add a little colour to those brisk market trips this season, or rock your bag on the beach if you’re off to warmer climes!

Available here for $660 from Callixto.

Mermaid Blanket from ASOS

Not that we’re ever in need of an excuse to lounge around in our pajamas and drink (spiked) hot chocolate, but how much better would it be if we could do just that… but looking like a mermaid?! Our favourite tailed princesses are totally in at the moment, so we’re embracing our inner Ariel and more than ready to be part of that world…

Available here for $381 (with free delivery to HK!) from ASOS .
