Wander woman

Life's a Feast (lifesafeast. blogspot.com) is a food blog I 'discovered' only recently, although it's about three years old. I came across the site when researching my current baking obsession, macarons - the delicate and notoriously temperamental little pastries made famous at patisseries such as Laduree and Pierre Herme, in Paris, France.

Eye on style

Hongkongers have never bought into the British tradition of wearing hats, but then again there's never been a high-end boutique dedicated to selling them. That is changing with the newly opened Hatwoman boutique (left, shop 209, Man Yee Arcade, 68 Des Voeux Road, Central, tel: 2167 8337), which stocks a range of hats, from edgy and romantic to playful and fashion-forward.

Hong Kong's artists, celebrities and amateur milliners have been putting on their thinking caps to come up with a fresh selection of hats for this year's Mad Hatter's Ball.

Where did you get that hat?

IT'S hats on for the ultimate fashion accessory. Brimmed and trimmed in a hundred different ways, a hat can say anything you want it to. And it can be worn for any occasion.

Hats off to a pair with head for design

WHAT the fashionable will be wearing tomorrow in the Easter parade in London, Paris or New York doesn't fit here. Hats aren't a part of everyday culture.

But, if a pair of Floras have their way, what's on your head may change as well as what's in it.
