Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil

I love a good facial cleansing oil. It’s my go to type of cleanser and I find it makes such a difference to my oily skin, I know that sounds weird but it really does help lessen the amount of oil my skin produces. The Muji Oil Cleanser is my current everyday go to but I…

September Favourites

I thought it was about time I began a monthly favourites series as I seem to be the only blogger out there who doesn’t, which is weird as they are one of my favourite type of posts to read! So without further ado, onto my favourites from September. Monki Face Dress My sister ordered this…

Bangkok Daily ~ September 2017

Being an expat has its ups and downs. It can be hard being so far from home and despite being over three years into expat life, it doesn’t get easier! But the good times far outweigh the bad for me which is why it didn’t take me long to think of Bangkok as home. When…

A Long Weekend in Hanoi

To say I fell in love with Hanoi is probably an understatement (I declared we should move there less than 24 hours in…); I loved how unique the culture still is, I loved the hectic, scooter filled streets, I loved the food and the cheap beer and the delicious egg coffee! We were there for…

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai is a city in the north of Thailand, famed for its many temples, glorious food and chilled back vibe! In my three years in Thailand I have explored many islands and beach areas but had never made it up north so we took my parents with us and spent a few days exploring….

New Year Sydney Style

Sydney and New Year go hand in hand. They are totally synonymous with each other, so of course when we began planning our  Christmas trip we knew we would have to do the slightly cliched (but bucket list) New Year’s Eve in Sydney! We discovered we had friends from the UK who were also going…

Thai Beauty ~ Srichand Luminescence Perfecting Powder

I really like the Srichand loose powders which I’ve talked about before. The Original is great at setting the under-eye and the Tanaka Gold makes a lovely face mask so when I came across a new Luminescence range from the brand in Boots I knew I had to give something a try. The range includes…

Travel Plans

The last two weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind of travel planning! We have a few long weekends coming up as well as some visitors so had lots of jaunts to sort out and get planned, plus I have been growing increasingly aware that I still haven’t visited Cambodia, Laos or Vietnam –…

Soleil Tan De Chanel

I have gazed longingly at the Soleil Tan De Chanel so many times but never taken the plunge, my main concern was that it would be too warm or orange for my skin tone. But after watching the very talented Olivia Jane MUA do my best friends makeup for her wedding day in the summer…

Introducing Lalalab

I remember the days when you would take your roll of film to Boots that had taken you months to use, having carefully selected each shot so as to not waste a single frame, and the anticipation of getting your photographs back, which ones had worked, which hadn’t. I used to create all sorts of…

UK Beauty Haul

I had quite a long list of products to either restock or that I have added to my wishlist to try and pick up whilst I was back in the UK last month. Needless to say I came back with quite a stash! I haven’t tried everything yet but I thought I’d give you a rundown…

Summer 2017

Well we’re back in Bangkok after an amazing but totally hectic month back in the UK where as predicted we ate way too much, spent too much and drove too much! We caught up with friends and family, hung out with our dog, I accompanied one of my best friends in the world down the…
