#BoycottMulan is now trending



The upcoming live-action remake of Mulan faces the possibility of being boycotted after its star, Chinese-American actress Liu Yifei, expressed her support for Hong Kong's police force, which has been accused of using brute force against protesters and even affected ordinary civilians with their use of tear gas. As reported by Newsweek, Liu said in a Weibo post, "I support Hong Kong's police, you can beat me up now." It didn't take long before people expressed their disappointment over the statement which many says is "an expression of support for police brutality." Netizens took to Twitter and made #BoycottMulan trend.

At their Paragon store, you can also avail of their premium facial services — Ultimate Detoxifying Facial, Rejuvenating Facial, and Total Revitalizing Facial. 


Harry Potter x Pandora collection



After its announcement of a collaboration with brand ambassador Millie Bobbie Brown, Pandora is set to release another intriguing jewellery set: the Harry Potter x Pandora collection. Launching later this year, Pandora will debut a capsule collection of 12 hand-finished products (which will include charms, pendants, a bracelet — and hopefully a time-turner!) inspired by iconic characters and symbols from the Harry Potter films. There's no preview for this yet, so all we can do now is just wait and see. 



Target's designer collab collection is here



Got a family member or a friend going to the USA soon? You better tell them to visit Target and bring you home a piece or two from the retail brand's big fashion designer collection featuring Proenza Schouler, Lilly Pulitzer, Anna Sui and more.
