Hello, my name is Norma and I'm addicted to ACCESSORIES.

So after so many Russia posts, here's a quick break for everyone! (There are many more Russia posts to come!)

First day back in Hong Kong, after my classic yum cha/dim sum therapy in my favourite part of Hong Kong - Mong Kok, I had no alternative but to dash to Argyle Centre, my favourite mall in Hong Kong and home to the cheapest and trendiest stuff any young girl would want!

I've been meaning to make a more detailed review of Argyle Centre, with maybe a few recommendations of the best shops, but I still have 6 weeks here so I will try and do it soon.

I had $100 in my pocket, so the equivalent of about 10€. I ended up leaving with $10.

My first stop had to be my favourite store - How much? conveniently situated on the bottom floor near the escalator. The beauty about this store is that everything costs $25! Yup! You read correctly! (Thats about 2.50). Now to be honest, for the last 2 years, everything used to cost $20 only, but they increased the prices with inflation and whatnot, but I still always manage to snap up some amazing pieces which I always get compliments for, not to mention that I sometimes find stuff which is sold in this store being sold in other stores in the mall or in other malls for $60 or once I even found a ring being sold for $240! Insane!

This necklace immediately caught my eye when I saw it in the shop. But at first it was in another colour, and I wanted something sharper. I knew I had to have it when I found this!

Next I've been feeling the need  of a new bracelet. I often find myself buying mostly Earrings, rings and necklaces, mainly because I seldom find a bracelet that I like enough. Well this was a good day as I found this. I actually have a rather similar leaf necklace which I need to be careful not to wear this bracelet with to avoid looking like a character from the jungle book.

Last but not least that USB screamed my name and I grabbed it right in time. It is the cutest ring EVER. I love it and have been wearing it non stop for weeks!

Then while cruising around the mall I also came across this new store which I discovered back in April with really cheap accessories too. I was also going to get this really cute 3-fingered lobster ring as they had a $30 for 2 rings deal, and I really really wanted to get another ring as it's cheaper but it was cutting into my finger and I knew I wouldn't wear it if it hurt, so I ended up paying $20 for just one ring, as I think hamzas look cool and i've always wanted a hamza accessory of some sort.

How does it look?
