In much-needed preparation for Halloween’s post skin trauma we are here to talk about cleansing! Whether you are gonna be any of they characters from Emily in Paris (we are still trying to figure out our Camille look) or possibly your best VMA Lady Gaga drag, the after effects of a full on makeup cake up is sure to have your face in despair along with all the tricks and treats you are sure to partake in.

Keeping this in mind we were all in for Colleen Rothschild’s Beauty Matcha Tea Treatment Toner which gave us a little life after a night cosmetic excess. Dosed with mighty antioxidants the alcohol free toner is vital in rehydrating and comforting skin. With a naughty night of makeup and edibles, I for one feel that my skin need a certain level of punishment via any stinging toner that will say, hey parties over time to cleanse into overtime. With the Matcha Tea Treatment however skin feels cleanse without the brutality.

The use of preprobiotics via the black and green kombucha fortifies this multibenefitial product. Beyond cleansing the toner really gets in and detoxifies, protects, and absorbs all the excess oil. #poresavior, anti-inflammatory characteristics and antiseptic properties are vital in making that morning after less mourning after.

EAT BLOOD

There really is no explanation for how much we love our tender young Bunny Holiday, the party girl and model/designer recently dropped a visualizer for her collection. Horror themed the film references great vampiric moments with varying inspirations from 70s era Italian lesbian vamps to silent film era Nosferatu, though the results are a lot more hypnotic. All of this came together with themes that would be sure to scare the shit out of you. We got the lowdown on Bunny’s top horror picks as well as her latest collection and photos from her recent screening.

Shanghai Upcycle Underground

Shanghai Upcycle Underground

Layout by Ida-Erika Gencheva

8 looks, 3 local upcycle designers, 1 model, 1 location, 1 goal: to promote the upcycle culture. After 7 years of living in NYC, Karmay Ngai, a creative director, model and “Eco Well-Being Blender” has found herself in Shanghai with the spirit to continue to grow the sustainable culture there. Ngai’s recent ventures include staging a wellbeing event which showcased her own designs.

This body of work highlights Shanghai’s riverside factory locations. Formerly  abandoned and now refurbished, they are very much part of the city’s ongoing dialog between industrialism and the newfound steps back into sustainability. Overlooking a bridge which reverberates the iconic influences of San Francisco’s very own golden landmark’s glow. We are excited to share this story and showcase what the local designers in Shanghai have to provide for the sustainable world.

With nothing to do, and self-employed, Chinese traditional style and originality frames the very chic, very cheap, chipchip shop! After graduating from Polimoda fashion institute in Florence, studying pattern making, chipchip designer Hu Huishi, found the fashion world was not what she’d imagined, but she still worked in the fashion industry in Shanghai for three years with a passion for clothing. She had not found the most suitable direction. By chance, during the epidemic, she says, “it was so boring to be trapped in my old house and I started to remodel my old clothes. It just so happened that my old house had a lot of unnecessary old clothes and the sewing machine I bought in high school. I picked up my passion for making clothes again.”


无所事事,失业后的自我就业状态,中古着与原创自制,very chic, very cheap, chipchip shop! 毕业于Polimoda服 装打版,回国工作后发现服装圈并不是想象中那样的, 但凭着对服装的热情还是在上海服装行业里上班了三年, 其 中兜兜转转还没有找到最适合自己的方向。机缘巧合下在疫情期间因为被困在老家里实在无聊开始了旧衣改造,正好 老家里有很多不要的旧衣服和我高中时买的缝纫机 ,重新拾起了做衣服的热情。

Manda | A Tradition of Fermentation

Manda | A Tradition of Fermentation

Gut health from sauerkraut/ kimchi, kombucha and Kefir has been the hot topic of all that is to come in and out of you. Not sparing all the gory details but your body as an ecosystem for bacterial growth needs that balance. As do you need some therapy sometimes, a message other times as well as a weekend binge that ends in a burger led carbo-load it’s the same with your bodies equilibrium and oxidation and rejuvenation. I was initially drawn to the packaging as well as heritage of the Manda range of products. Which brought a design forward take on the daily ritual taking your vitamins.

Founded as a sake distillery 300 years ago the Matsuura family that owns the company utilized their knowledge of fermentation and compiled over 23 years of studies to the cultivation of products which has become some of Japan’s greatest selling supplements. With a US base in Fresno the localized cultivation makes for a QooA go to product, The brands 2 featured products a Superfood and Superdrink are a composed of highly complex assortments of 52 kinds of botanical raw natural ingredients. It’s the highly focused selection and the individual cultivation of the various vegetation, fruits, grains and algae that really brings out a rich and individualized adoration of the brand. Long term fermentation and controlled fermentation us utilized in both the skin flesh and seeds.

I love having the Superfood as an alternative sweetener as well a pick me up for when I need that extra treat. The taste is full of umami a little savory with a wonderful consistency. There is a sweetness and earthiness that would go well with the taste of black garlic. It also works wonders as a salad base with a dose of lemon, salt and a dose of olive oil. The Superdrink is a lovely afternoon pick me up. I like to have it mixed in with sparkling water and post my initial coffee binge. The taste is rich but not overpowering, a delicate combination of the fermented superfood, mulberry leaves, young barley leaves and the gorgeous matcha which gives it the navy green tone… The real highlight is the Mulberry leaves, a delicate treat that is so rarely given a moment to shine.
