"Happiness is a great balance of emotional control and the understanding of reality in nature"
Yes who wouldn't want to be happy!? I always keep myself in a positive mood by blogging, finding inspirations and talking about future plan with people and friends. I just love being comfy around people who have the same thoughts and ideas about life because it is fun to listen to the conversation, as well as, learn from their experiences. Open your mind and learn something new is what I have learnt from reading a book written by Jack Canfield, one of my greatest teachers and inspiration of all time.
However, another super happiness is collaborating with brands and designers,especially this time I have such a great opportunities to collaborate in a scarf project with Malaysian designer from "L.A.R.K" Handmade, limited run bags and scarves right from the studio of Ching. Personally, I love handmade clothes and accessories since they are quite unique and special. Just think about if you have to do some DIY products to the one you love, then it would be more meaning than just purchasing from the stores, isn't it. Anyway, it's really rare for me to do those type of handicraft (except painting or card making) because I'm not born in this way lol So I really adore those talented bloggers and people out there who make their own "Do It Yourself" because they are awesome!
"Ching" known as the designer of L.A.R.K is very special to me indeed because collaboration this time is not just sending items to me, feature on blog and done but "it's a new relationship between blogger and brand" We still keep in touch and send email to each other, also suggest about how we can we present the product in a better way. Like I mentioned above that learning from other person is good ;) Therefore Ching had provided me link of the brand's website in order to choose one of my favourite goods from L.A.R.K (http://shoplark.com/) And obviously my preferable scarf must be one of the most colourful with asymmetric printed! Because it reminds me of happy Summer coming in the next year!

Now let's get to know more about L.A.R.K and its designer, shall we?
1) Can you tell me a bit background, as well as, designers of the brand?
Sure! L.A.R.K started out as a hobby... I've always loved making things with my hands since I was young, so the idea of having a handmade brand always felt very natural, like it was my calling. I design every item on my own, and sew all the bags and jewelry in my home studio.
2) What's your inspiration when designing scarf?
Scarves are amazing, versatile things! So many ways to tie them, and so many ways to style them, so FUN. In that way, I feel that the colours and the designs of scarves should be fun. I hate being too serious in life, and I suppose that reflects in our scarves-- they're made for people who enjoy life, big smiles, and aren't afraid make different, bold choices in life.
3) What's the plan for future growth for the brand itself?
L.A.R.K has achieved milestones beyond what I had imagined when I first began, like being on the pages of British Vogue, being invited to host a giveaway with Frankie, and being selected as one of the creators to represent my country Malaysia in an exhibition showcasing the creative cities of Asia Pacific. But what really, REALLY keeps me going are the personal emails and messages that I get from people who own their own piece of L.A.R.K in different parts of the world-- those moments are precious... so the plan for the future is to have a piece of L.A.R.K belonging to a proud owner in every country of the world.
4) Who's the targeted customers of the brand?
L.A.R.K is not made for everyone. I think our hang tags that we send out with every order explains it best: L.A.R.K bags and accessories are not mass produced, and not for everyone. We are made for courageous dreamers, fun company, and the freshest talent. If that sounds like you, maybe we're made for each other.
5) What does L.A.R.K stand for?
Life's A Real Kaleidoscope. I believe that life is ever-changing, just like looking through a kaleidoscope... and change can be beautiful, so let's not be afraid of it. Let's enjoy it!
Thank you so much ขอบคุณคะ
