Review ~ Mövenpick Siam, Pattaya

Preparing for a Princess to visit your workplace is pretty stressful yet a seriously incredible, once in a lifetime experience. Needless to say when said event was over I needed a weekend away. I am sure I’ll offend someone when I say that I strongly dislike Pattaya, it just isn’t the place for me but…

Review ~ Baan Saitara Villas, Koh Samui

A few weeks ago we flew to Koh Samui for a few days. Flying direct with Bangkok Air is more expensive than doing the Nok Fly N Ferry option but in theory should save you about half a day each way – when your only going for four days this was precious time. We usually…

Theo Mio Brunch

We have been to Theo Mio, British chef Theo Randall’s Italian restaurant in Bangkok at the Intercontinental Hotel, a couple of times for Brunch and when I found the pictures and realised I hadn’t shared I thought I should. Served from 11.30am – 2pm, it’s not your traditional Bangkok brunch in the sense that it…

It Cosmetics ~ Your Skin But Better

I’ve heard a lot about It Cosmetics from bloggers and You Tubers but it wasn’t a brand I had come across in Thailand. A few weeks ago during my regular sweep of Sephora I came across a whole new section of It Cosmetics! I had a mental list of what I fancied trying but as…

A Country in Mourning.

It has been a very sad time for this country I am very lucky to call my home. As I’m sure many of you will have seen His Majesty King Bhumibol passed away on Thursday having reigned for 70 years. The much revered king is seen as the father of Thailand and the country is shrouded…

Bangkok Daily Pics

I thought I’d share a few of my favourite Instagram posts from the past few months plus a few extras. Life in the crazy city of Bangkok becomes ever more familiar as I edge towards my 2nd year anniversary of living in Thailand, but everyday little things remind me that life is slightly extraordinary no matter…

A Weekend In Singapore

Back in August we had a long weekend for the Queen’s Birthday so we headed to Singapore to spend some time with my cousin and her husband. We had a fab time and have fallen in love with Singapore a little more! There was shopping (Sephora, Kikki K and Crate & Barrel), cocktails and a…

Zoeva Luxury Set Vol. 1

How stunning are these Zoeva brushes? I have heard so much about Zoeva but other than ordering online it’s not a brand I have seen in Bangkok so when I stumbled across their counter in Sephora in Singapore to say I was a little excited is an understatement. I knew I had to try something…

Review ~ Marriott, Hua Hin

A few weeks ago we headed down to the Marriott in Hua Hin for the weekend with some friends and our garish inflatables. We got a taxi down to the mainland  seaside resort town which cost around 5000 THB return and takes about 3 hours from central Bangkok. We got a great deal on our…

Duty Free Spree

Brands here in Thailand can be significantly more expensive than in other parts of the world, the U.K. included so I keep a list of products to pick up when I’m in Duty Free at the airport. My list tends to included staple beauty items that I already know are slightly cheaper to purchase there,…

Charlotte Tilbury Part III

No visit back to the UK is complete for me now without a quick stop at the Charlotte Tilbury counter. We had so little time at home it wasn’t looking like it was going to happen but the night before we flew back to Bangkok I managed to find 20 minutes to pop into Selfridges (queue huge…

Gin & Blue Sky

Our three-week July visit back to the UK was as hectic and fabulous as ever although we were actually only in England for six days. We spent the rest of the time indulging in too much gin, eating our body weight in seafood and sitting on the beach in Spain. Much of my childhood was spent…
