Editor's Picks: LV Ping Pong Set, Recovery Serums, Vegan Goodies And More
1/4Louis Vuitton Ping Pong Set
Let's just start with the most ostentatious item of the week. I'd be damned if I didn't mention Louis Vuitton's most recent drop of a $2,210 ping pong set, which comes with two paddles, a cover for the paddles, four ping pong balls and a special holder for the balls—all items, of course, marked LV on them in one way or another. With the right athletic equipment, I'm confident enough to take up any sport competitively.

2/4Mamonde Red Energy Recovery Serum
I'm already a fan of Korean skincare brand Mamonde's toners, and recently I was given a sample of their their new Red Energy Recovery Serum. I was lucky I inadvertently packed it into my carry-on for my flight to Australia. Derived from flowers and a lot of science, this serum helped to counteract all the terrible skin conditions you can get from a long flight: dryness, cracking and contamination. So imagine the wonders it could do for you on land. Best of all, this stuff smells wonderful.
3/4Stripey Dresses From Missoni
Missoni recently opened its largest boutique in Southeast Asia at Central Embassy. The occasion had me revisiting the brand's signature knits, which left wanting a few of the one-pieces. Anything that you can throw on and look instantly "dressed up" in is a good investment in my book. Some of Missoni's stripey knit dresses I reckon even look best with minimal makeup and little to no accessories.

4/4Loving Earth Chocolate Bars
As I mentioned, I recently travelled to Australia and coming back, I wanted to bring some goodies to my colleagues. Being vegan and environmentally conscious, I try my best to support brands that are ethical—even when I'm shopping for others—and a country like Australia just makes the task so easy. With vegan treats so prevalent over there, I decided to go with Loving Earth's chocolate bars. Completely plant-based, organic and ethically sourced from the world's cacao origin in Peru, the 45-gram chocolate bars come in five creative flavours—Nutty Mr Maple, Salted Caramel Swayzee, Turkishly Delightful, Banoffee Bang Bang and Very Buck 'N Berry—and such cute packaging.
And don't worry. You don't have to travel all the way to AU to get a hold of these. I found them on Sunshine Market, a trusty supplier of vegan foods here in Thailand.
