A Lazy Thursday…

Today is the first day since I arrived that I have genuinely done sweet F.A. I got up late, I read some online articles about lesser known things to do in Bangkok, made a list of lesser known things to do in Bangkok, cleaned makeup brushes, had an afternoon nap, started a photo wall, read…

The Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I was so touched last night when I was nominated for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award by the lovely and very talented Cariad Carys. Having only been blogging for what feels like a nano second, I am thrilled to accept, and honoured that someone likes my blog enough to nominate me, thank you so much…

Do something every day that scares you…

Moving to Thailand was a huge, life changing decision. A month in for me and 5 months for Dave and I’m already convinced we made the absolute right decision back in Easter 2014. When your living a happy, comfortable life with your family on your doorstep, incredible friends, your own house, dog and great job…

A dash of culture…

Yesterday, a friend and I visited Wat Arun, a temple on the Choa Phraya river. We took the BTS to the river and the jumped on a boat. Entry to the temple is just 50THB (£1). Wat Arun is an incredible sight with a 266ft central ‘prang’ (tower) that has steep steps that represent the…

Review ~ The 1975 in BKK

I wanted to be writing a gushy review about what a fab evening we’d had watching The 1975 and how you should all rush out and see them. Unfortunately I’m not. We love live music so Dave bought tickets for us to see The 1975 play in Bangkok last night with a gang of our…

A Girly Saturday.

A bit of pampering was on the cards yesterday. I headed into town with the girls to check out the nail place I’ve been hearing about. Ten Ten is just off the BTS at Phrom Phong, and is a lovely spa. There’s a hairdresser downstairs with the nail spa up on the top floor, doing…

Home from Home

A bacon sarnie and last nights The Voice* make for a lovely, lazy Sunday morning in Bangkok. We get proper British style bacon from Sloane’s Artisan Butcher; they do all sorts including proper sausages, burgers and even black pudding! On some half decent bread from Villa supermarket, I could almost be back home in England!…

The Weather

Quite simply, this is what I love most about living in Thailand. Waking up knowing that the weather is going to be warm and the sun is most likely to shine is like a dream come true. It’s gone 1am in the morning here and it’s still 24 degrees outside…bliss! I did always say I…

Friday Night Face & Fun

Last night we went to the Marriott Sky Bar with friends for some ‘sundowner 2-4-1’ cocktails followed by a cheeky burger at Game Over. And as promised, I tried some of my haul products out… I have on the Eyeko Mascara (love love love!), Painterly paint pot under some Naked 2 eyeshadow, blended with my…

Oops…Sephora & MAC

Yesterday, I took myself to the shops! You can read about that adventure here, but today I thought I’d fill you in on my purchases. As I’ve mentioned previously, I was delighted when I found out that Bangkok had a number of Sephora stores. I discovered Sephora 10 years ago in Paris on a Uni…

H&M workout wear

So, I haven’t been a great one for exercise over the past few years, excluding a weekly Pilates class, which I only stuck to because I went with work friends. But over the past 2 weeks I have been frequenting the gym and have been put through my paces by a friend out here. I’m…

Confident Thursday

Today, from somewhere, I suddenly had the confidence to take myself into town. We live at the end of the BTS line in the south of Bangkok so I got a motorbike taxi (I’m still thanking God when I get off in one piece) to Bearing station which is about a 5 minute ride away…
