Waking up in the morning is one of those blessings that many of us tend to take for granted. We often get up (perhaps after pressing snooze a couple times) and start rushing about our day, whatever that entails for each of us. But I find that the morning can be a great time to set the tone for the day and give ourselves some extra love. Here are some of my favourite tips for getting out of bed and starting the day right.
I remember the first time I came across a Tokidoki character and instantly falling in love. It was 2011 in K11 mall in Hong Kong and Simone Legno had created an instalment that featured his work in all shapes and sizes throughout the venue. I felt like a kid again as I looked at these unique sculptures, paintings and toys. Four years later, Tokidoki’s success has continued to expand and gain worldwide popularity, with new characters and amazing collaborations (such as Sanrio, Karl Lagerfeld, Lesportsac and Sephora).
I never thought I’d be able to meet the creator, someone who I become friends with on Facebook once I noticed his name at the exhibition (who now has too many friends to accept more requests). But, as luck had it, I received word that Simone was visiting my darling town of Chiang Mai – and that 50 people would have the chance to meet him. I knew I had to be one of them.
