The latest version of the site showcases Fashion, Beauty, Food, Lifestyle and Travel, retaining the personal touches of a blog but presented in a beautiful new editorial layout. The ethos behind the site is a positive female outlook on luxury with an emphasis on the unique and unusual.

Currently based in London, Peony enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter and dog (a miniature Dachsund).
The Telegraph – “Peony Lim is not like most girls, being in possession of a wardrobe rammed with vintage Hermès and Chanel, and an eye that looks further afield than her contemporaries for style tips… She is now a regular on street style blogs, and has legions of fans who coo over her polished aesthetic and her signature red lipstick.”
